These seems to be no end to the number of AT-ST’s ($9.99) and certain 6″ figures ($2.99) in the supply chain at Ross. If you have a Ross in your area, it might be worth your time checking to see if they are still receiving Hasbro product from The Black Series. Good luck and let us know about your success (or lack thereof)!

Walmart stores are starting to rollback prices on both TVC and TBS figures – hopefully this means they are trying to make room for newer product. Perhaps we might even see further reductions over the next month or two if this first round of rollbacks doesn’t help clear some significant peg space.
Yak’s Top Ten returns, with the theme moving onto MULTIPACKS!
To help keep this theme as simple as possible, I’d suggest going with multi-pack THEMES rather than trying to call out individual figures. So for example: Saw Gerrera’s Partisans 3-pk, Kessel Droids 3-pk, etc.
What multipacks do you want to see made in The Vintage Collection from? Post your TVC wish list HERE.
You can also do the same thing for the 6″ scale line in The Black Series. Post your 6″ TBS wish list right HERE.
Note: Wish lists may also be posted in the comments section of this article. You may post both a TVC and TBS list, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums. And please indicate if you’re referring to TVC or TBS with each list.
The winner has been chosen, notified and accepted. Congratulations to David A. of San Marcos, CA. (@thebboyfett on Instagram) Thanks to DorksideToys.com for co-sponsoring this amazing giveaway and thanks to all that participated. Watch for another barge giveaway next month at Star Wars Celebration Chicago.
While at Target yesterday, I noticed some new Star Wars nostalgia items for $11.99. If you’re into these type of collectibles, look for endcaps in the Target toy section for these.
Personal Note: While I didn’t pick these up and normally don’t buy oddball items such as these, I am already thinking I made a mistake by passing on them. That lunch box is especially cool.
Those one or two TVC TIE Fighters you’ve been seeing on the shelf at your local Walmart may be turning into an entire fleet soon, as St. Louis area Walmarts have been suddenly receiving mass quantities of this ship. Let us know if you’re seeing the same thing.
Personal Note: $79 is just too high of a price for this ship… would be surprised if these aren’t on rollback / clearance before too long.
Luke Skywalker (Dagobah) has won Hasbro’s TESB 40th Anniversary Fanvote for the next 6″ Black Series figure offered on the Vintage style cardback.
Target has started clearancing select 6″ Black Series exclusive figures again. I found the Bespin Escape Princess Leia for $13.98 this morning and there are multiple reports from collectors finding the once high-in-demand Gamorrean Guard for 50% off.
Thanks to Jose S. for the above image.
