Store Report: Black Series and New Bladebuilders Lightsaber Hitting Stores


After hitting several Walmart and Target stores on my travels this weekend, I managed to see a few new products hitting shelves or at least arriving in stores.

A local Walmart (Coon Rapids, MN) has received a couple cases of the 3.75″ Black Series assortment. I passed on them for now as they aren’t anything I remotely need at the moment but it’s nice to see at least new product arriving.

My local Target (Champlin, MN) also received a single 6″ Black Series TIE Fighter with Pilot and a new Bladebuilders “Choose Your Destiny” lightsaber which is very Inquisitor-like in its design.

    Hopefully since the 3.75″ Black Series is a Wal-Mart exclusive that it means these repaint Wave 1 figures will not all have to sell before Wave 2 gets pushed in. When all is said and done my local Wally will have had a dozen Lukes, Chewies, and Vader’s. Overkill. Lets hope Wave 2 arrives in these numbers.

    Wal-Mart is such a disaster. With each store I enter, I marvel how it’s a huge retailer that is able to stay in business. Then I think about how it treats its employees and it dawns on me how it turns a profit. Then I’m sad. : (

    Barnes & Noble is also stocking some TFA toys. The one nearest me has the 3.75″ scale FO TIE Fighter w/ pilot, the Y-Wing Bomber w/ Kanan, and a few of the two-packs (BB-8/Teedo/Thug, R2/3PO, Cody/Kenobi), as well as some of the Jakks Pacific figures, Bladebuilders, and various other stuff. No new 6″ BS…they have still have leftover Greedos and Slave Leias :/
