While Hasbro’s performance over the past year(s) has been pretty disappointing for most 3.75″ fans, I must say they surprised me with the attention they gave the new R1-J5 droid in the Resistance toy line.
I highly recommend picking up this figure if you see it, even if you are passing on the rest of the line. This is a cool toy and reminds me of the product they were pushing a decade ago – check out more pics of this droid (including his removable part features) in the forums.
Kmart.com orders from their $7.50 TVC sale are showing up, and as most others, my order was wrong. The above figures do not appear to be Death Troopers or Dr. Aphra.
Personal Note: At least these figures arrived very mint on package (they handled the contents way better than I expected and these might be the best condition cardbacks on TVC that I’ve seen), but it’s still not what I ordered. I’m too lazy to go through the hassle of returning these, and will find a customizing use for the figures, but I won’t be ordering from them again. For anything.
Target stores officially can start selling Resistance figures tomorrow, January 15. So if you are on the hunt for these, or have been turned down because of Target enforcing the street date (which is ridiculous considering how low key this show is), then be on the lookout starting tomorrow.
After spending a few hours searching this morning, I managed to stumble across a new listing for an unannounced Vintage Collection figure: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise). Perfect for the upcoming Barge and rumored Tatooine Skiff, right? No word yet if this is exclusive to Walmart, but based on its UPC, that is not out of the realm of possibility. Maybe we’ll learn more about this at Toy Fair next month. The pertinent info has been added to our Master List of UPCs and SKUs.
