A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is currently underway, and the theme is DROIDS.
So, roll up your sleeves and cobble together a droid of your own… or better yet, let’s see what kind of painting skills you’ve got too! Or if that’s not your cup of tea, you can still check out the most recent entries by clicking here.
Personal Note: The roundup report for Yakfinities #69 is coming soon – with over 150 custom entries, it’s taking longer than usual – apologies for the delay!
Disney Stores are currently promoting their new exclusives Black Series figures coming in early November. As you can see in the image above (provided by Ryan F.) they are showing the 6″ Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton), Stormtrooper with Blast Accessories and Zuckuss. They also handing out an in store coupon right now for 25% off valid Nov. 8-11 so hopefully some/all of the exclusive hit in that timeframe.
Back in 2014, StarWars.com relaunched with a brand new site which had a dedicated section for Fan News and Blog Sites, Fan Collecting Sites and Fan Podcasts. Jake Stevens from From 4-LOM to Zuckuss noticed that those sections now have all been removed from their Community page and replaced with a statement as follows:
Notice: Lucasfilm Ltd. strives to foster an inclusive, diverse and safe environment for our fans and we ask the same of our fan community.
No word yet if these sections will be returning. Until then, you can click on through to check out a screen shot of the section as it once looked.

SWCollector.com alerts us that the new Droid Factory Sandcrawler is now listed in the ShopDisneyParks app (currently out of stock).
Star Wars deals in Target’s 2018 Toy Catalog have been posted online. The promotion runs from October 28 through November 21.
Right before NYCC, we posted a report about an upcoming $10 assortment of Hasbro figures referred to as Star Wars: Story in a Box. The first four figures include Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and R2-D2. After some further investigating, I’ve found there are four more of these sets (probably wave 2) that includes Princess Leia, Han Solo, Stormtrooper and Yoda. Watch for additional details on this product line soon.
As with all of our advanced rumor reports, details of these products are subject to change and/or cancellation altogether.
Yak’s Top Ten is back for another round, taking us back to Tatooine and Endor!
