The folks at Galactic Trading Post have updated with news for everyone salivating over getting their hands on their highly anticipated Classic 3.75″ walls:
The last samples we received, we found a problem with the LED panel. It was shrinking in the mold and so the gap lines were not lining up with other walls. This had further delayed the walls, but we felt it had to be fixed despite additional delays. These samples we are receiving now with have this and clip tolerance changes. We again apologize for the delays, we hope that with these final samples all the kinks will be worked out. We will update you once we receive the samples and have a better timeline from the factory of when we will have these in.
Personal Note: I’ve been waiting over 20 years now for something like this to be made, so a bit of a delay here isn’t going to be the end of the world. It’s great that it really sounds like the 3.75″ scale product will be worth the wait; and those that have the 6″ scale wall sets can already attest to just how amazing these things are. This is factory quality stuff and you can order on their website.
A tweet from follower @SuperAwesomeGeekShow has reported that the illusive Revan wave of 6″ Black Series figures have been found in the Seattle area at Target.

Disney Store has posted a preview of their next assortment of Star Wars-themed Tsum Tsum plush characters. Available on April 4, the Revenge of the Sith set includes General Grevious, Clone Trooper*, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker**.
*Note the Phase I design for the Clone Trooper and not the proper Phase II
**I also assume that the image take for the graphic above has been horizontally flipped and Anakin’s scar is over the wrong eye.
