3.75″ Rogue One Black Series Hitting Walmart

Twitter follower @Darkapple93 has tagged us in the above tweet which claims the acquisition of the Rogue One 3.75″ Black Series Jyn and Death Trooper Specialist from a Walmart in Houston, Texas.

Nice score!!!

  • Bombadgungan

    Does anybody happen to know the breakdown of this case? Is it six Jyns and six Death Troopers? Or are there carry-forwards included?

    • The breakdown is in the tweet above.

      • Bombadgungan

        Duh! It was there the whole time. Thanks! I didn’t really believe they would have packed these new figures 6 each per case. My local store must have gotten in 2 cases.

  • Theater Geek

    They are in Oregon now, too.

    • Bombadgungan

      Oh cool! East side or west side? I haven’t seen the RO wave yet, but I did just score Phasma and Ackbar/ERGs at Walmart on 82nd.

      • Theater Geek

        First ones I found were at Cornelius. Second bunch were at Wood Village, way up by Gresham, so really that’s about as far apart as you can get ha ha. I had checked the 82nd ave. stores (both of them) a couple days ago, glad they findally got *something* new. Other stores that haven’t gotten the Rogue One wave yet, Tigard, Sherwood, Salem (Lancaster) and Salem (Turner Road).

        • Bombadgungan

          Cornelius, is that on the 5, down near the border with Cali? I’ve been to Wood Village, but typically just in the summer when I am on a trip back from The Gorge. Man, you sure cover a wide swath of stores! Either you are a long haul trucker, drive for Uber full time or are just a random Prius driver with a ton of free time. 😉 Me, I’m lucky to stop in at my local Walmart on 82nd a few times a week on the way home from work and the other 82nd WM on the weekend.

          • Theater Geek

            Cornelius is actually west of Hillsboro, but I work anywhere from Hillsboro to NE PDX depending on the day. I pass by a lot of WMs.

          • Bombadgungan

            Thanks for the hot tip Theater Geek! Because of your post, I stopped in at Walmart on 82nd on my way home from work. To my great surprise they had stocked what looked to be 2 cases of the Rogue One wave! Scored myself 2 Death Troopers and a Jyn. I left the other 2 Death Troopers and 5 Jyns for the next collector or kid. I must say, I’ve never seen this many TBS 3.75″ figures on the pegs at one time since the old days of carded The Black Series.

          • Theater Geek

            Sweet. The Hayden Meadows Walmart (over by Delta Park) has a bunch of the previous waves in stock, so if you need Phsama, Ahsoka, TFA Leia, TFA Han, Ackbar, they were all there. (just not ERG)

          • Bombadgungan

            Thanks. I’ve only been to that location once. It’s kinda out of the way. It was months ago before any Rogue One stuff had hit and I have to say it was a sad sad sight. The Star Wars section was just scraps with other toy lines bleeding into the section. There were more toys thrown about and piled up than there were pegged. I haven’t seen such a pathetic display since the dark days of 2014.

  • Mike

    Found a full case at one of the traditionally worst Walmart’s for toys in Louisville KY (Middletown). If not for the holiday I would have been at work and no doubt missed out on these!

    At first I only saw 2 death troopers and no Jyns, which I found odd, then noticed 4 figures on the top shelf- the other deathy and 3 Jyns

    • Bombadgungan

      Congrats Mike! And an ERG (or two) to boot! 🙂

  • xdeathmedicx

    Found in columbia sc this morning

  • Mike

    Anyone know the SKU’s on these?

    • 54767069 – Jyn
      54767070 – Death Trooper

      • Mike

        Thank you sir!

      • Mike

        And thank you in general. This site is such a POSITIVE space to learn and share information about the hobby and what, at the end of the day, are toys.

      • Theater Geek

        Still don’t show up in Brickseek. Is there a SKU for the assortment? I remember last time you could get an idea that way, but individual figures wouldn’t show up.

  • RumDumb

    Still waiting to see the Phasma wave. And I am not exaggerating.

  • Matt

    More figs to import… wish Hasbro brought these out in Aus.

    • Bombadgungan

      TRU doesn’t carry them there?

      • Matt

        No, unfortunately not. No stores in Australia carry them. Makes it a pain to source them.

        • Bombadgungan

          And we complain about the bad distribution in the U.S. At least we get these. Stocked slowly, but all but a few show up eventually. Sorry bro.

          • Matt

            I guess it probably more falls on Hasbro AU to get them in. Exclusives can be over priced here too TRU are charging $45 for the hover tank pilot.

          • Bombadgungan

            I had seen a few figures from this Walmart TBS 3.75″ line at Toys R Us during a recent trip to Hong Kong, so I thought maybe TRU Australia would stock them too. I was surprised to see many other retailers’ exclusives at this TRU as well; SDCC 6″ Kylo Ren, Entertainment Earth 6″ Trooper 4pk, Amazon 6″ Trooper 4pk, Kmart 6″ Rey. Pricing was just slightly higher than the U.S.

          • Matt

            Unfortunately TRU here is more selective in what they get. Traditionally they used to get majority of the exclusives in but its mainly confined to two or three retail chains now and none of them picked these up…

  • Like A Bossk
    • Bombadgungan

      Awesome! congrats!

  • Mike

    Hit 4 Walmarts prior to 8 am this morning in Louisville, KY, only saw one Lando. And a bunch of Finn’s……

  • General Hux

    I haven’t even found the ERG wave…

    Walmart I HATE you!!!!

    • Danny

      same here, I had to buy ackbar and lando online. Still no luck on Ahsoka and ERG 🙁

    • darthmadonna

      So I went out on force friday and there was nothing. I asked an employee and she said oh yeah they pulled it because people bought and tried to buy it before the date. So she said she had a cart of reboxed figures she would bring out. I waited and the cart was full of TFA product! Except there was two ERG black series. It was the only thing new in that cart. I am still shocked that I lucked out. As the weeks gone by I have kept hitting walmarts and I still have not even seen Ackbar, Ahsoka, or another ERG.

    • Bombadgungan

      My 2 Walmarts aren’t doing collectors many favors here either. They never stock more than 1 case at a time, so it is typically pretty picked through. And they take forever to restock! I was very fortunate to score an Ackbar and Ahsoka on Rogue Friday morning. I passed on Lando and there were no Royal Guards to be seen. I had to ask and wait for them to bring these out. Same scenario as below, where they had been put out and refused a sale earlier in the week, so tossed in a random box and stuffed in the back room. I’ve done so so. I’ve never seen Yavin Ceremony Leia, Phasma, ERG or this new RO wave, but have been able to get the rest with much searching and patience.

      • Bombadgungan

        *Update*
        I just found Phasma tonight!

        • Darth Janus

          Congrats, Bombad. I actually just got the wave the other day. Phasma is a nice figure. What do you think of the figure?

          • Bombadgungan

            Haven’t had the chance to open it yet.

            And the hot streak continues! I virtually never have the time to hit a store in the morning before work, but today I had a few extra minutes and was in the area, so I popped in to my lowly Walmart. Man, I couldn’t have timed it any better. Scored 2 Royal Guards and an Ackbar! They also had a second Ackbar and 3 each of Lando and Ahsoka. I’m never this lucky! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1265e3a46294657a8a8e0df0623907032ff9c447530d43b3c49b35a344b6ce38.jpg

          • General Hux

            I found Ackbar two days ago, I was really excited until I opened him, tried to bend his right knee and then SNAP, his knee broke right off….

          • Bombadgungan

            Noooooooooooooooooooo! :O

            Sorry to hear that bro. If I were you I would take it back. I actually had that happen to me once. Ironically, it was the TVC Admiral Ackbar. As soon as I got him out of the package I bent his arm at the elbow and his forearm snapped off. I took it back and got a refund.

          • General Hux

            I’m gonna take it back for sure, ironic that it happened to the TVC Ackbar too. 🙂

          • Bombadgungan

            It happened because there is such a small section between his elbow joint and his swivel forearm joint. I grabbed ahold of his forearm not realizing the pressure I was afflicting on the forearm pin and snap. So now when bending Ackbar’s elbow I am sure to grasp the section between the elbow and forearm.

        • General Hux

          Wow! Congrats!

  • Corman4444

    I stopped at the south Ames Walmart and found the Jyn Erso and Death Trooper 3 3/4 inch Black series exclusives hanging on the pegs. I couldn’t believe my luck and snapped up the three Death Troopers and one Jyn.

    I headed to Des Moines and stopped at the Grimes Walmart and nabbed one more 3 3/4 inch Black Series Death Trooper. I left three Jyns and 2 of the Troopers there.

        Let’s take this further…which WM?

      • CSEddleman

        Found them, thanks

  • Richard Grissom Jr.

    Still haven’t seen the wave before this one yet. Lolz.

    • David James Downey

      I got mine from viper kingdom today. Hey are wonderful. Everything an action figure should be. Really impressed with how Jyn’s pistol turns into a rifle

      If you are familiar with marauder gun runner modular weapons you will love Jyn’s gun. She is incredible. Beautiful face and paint applications. It is why we buy figures

      • 80sRobot

        I got mine at Walmart tonight. WOW — this Jyn figure is *excellent*. The jacket is easily removable, and she looks just as good not wearing it. The pistol slots into her side holster securely. She has lots of POA, yet she stands easily on her own; it’s like they carefully engineered this figure to balance well on its legs.

        It’s ironic that this figure is out first before its cheaper counterpart (in most Walmarts). There were no Jedha Jyns or other Wave 2 figs at the Walmart I was at (I have yet to come across any of them), but these new Black Series were on the pegs.

        Highly recommended. If you’re not a completest collector, this is the only Jyn to buy. Let the kids have the cheaper standard one.
