BB-8 Adventure Playset Base @ Retail

In a surprising toy find, Yakface reader Bryan K. sends in visual proof of finding the Galactic Heroes BB-8 playset that was shown on display back in February at New York Toy Fair.

We’ve been wondering whatever happened to this, and there had been speculation that it was cancelled.  But it’s been found at a Walmart store, and our assumption is you’ll start seeing these at retail in September.

Bryan also found this at the same store, but we’re not at liberty to share the image.

Personal Note:  Seeing that we know the upcoming Hasbro 3.75″ “Mega Playset” also turns into BB-8, an educated guess tells us that this thing is going to be similar to this Galactic Heroes toy.

    Why are people in the forum saying this is cancelled? And here people are saying they’re finding it in stores. lol! Doesn’t look cancelled to me. Looks kinda fun actually.

    BB-8’s eye is a super laser.

    Anyone know the MSRP for this? How much was it at Target?

    • Rykrof_Enloe

      I think $39.99 is the MSRP… someone else found one at Walmart and posted on our FB page the price sticker of $37.97

        That’s confusing then as a department store here has it for £99.99 and they don’t tend to hike up the price.

    The ‘this’ that was found at the same store (that you are not at liberty to show the image) has been available on Walmart’s site for almost a week.

      Cool. Here’s hoping it gets a figure release. Even one of those Metal Collection figures would work.

    • Rivesjunctionite

      Interesting flat head

  • Boba Fettuccini

    Makes me wonder if it’s literally the same exact toy scaled up :p

    • Rykrof_Enloe

      I hope not but I bet the opening feature is similar.
