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.
