Walmart’s exclusive cardboard Kessel playset is finally starting to show up at brick and mortar stores. Thanks to reader vikingrobot for the report!
A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is now underway in the forums! This theme entails characters from Tatooine, Jedha, Jakku, or any other desert setting. As usual, submissions can be from official canon, fan fic, etc. We look forward to seeing another round of great customs!
It’s time to wind down the 2018/19 Yak’s Top Ten Lists with Yak’s Elite 25! There are 130 figures that are eligible for the Elite 25 list.
Note: Wish lists may be posted in the comments section of this article or the Yakface Forums, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums.
Rules: Pick up to 25 figure from the list of winners you’d like to see done in 6” The Black Series scale. Only figures from the Yak’s Top Ten Lists are eligible for this round. The Vintage Collection vote will take place later in April.
Chances are you might not have seen this set at retail, but if you’re interested, right now it’s marked down for the low price of $12.58 via Amazon Prime.
If you have a Tuesday Morning store in your area, you might want to swing by as they have been getting in The Last Jedi Force Link figures recently and selling them for the low price of $1.99. They seem to still be getting in more 3.75″ TBS ($3.99) and 6″ TBS ($6.99) figures. Their store locator is here.
If you have a Dollar Tree store in your area, if might be worth your while to swing by and see if they are getting in Rogue One figures. Their store locator is here.
Personal Note: At two different Dollar Tree stores in the St. Louis area today, I found remnants of the following: Darth Vader, Rey (Jakku), Director Krennic, Chirrut, Jyn (scarf), Cassian (blue coat), Princess Leia (animated Rebels). For $1.00 each!
Maybe these are remnants from Toys”R”us warehouses, but they couldn’t find someone who would sell these for more than a buck each? The Cassian and Jyn figures are already starting to pile up… so maybe this was a good call… on any note, no more 5POA, Hasbro and Disney… please. The product is just too boring. Modern Star Wars figures need enhanced articulation and more variety of aliens and droids in the mix.
***UPDATE – BACK IN STOCK AS OF 7AM CST (3/21)***
If you haven’t scored any TVC Mimban Stormtroopers (or are looking to add to your existing army), Walmart.com has the TVC Mimban Stormtrooper in stock… as of this post, they are still listed as available at the standard $12.99 price.
They have free shipping on orders over $35, or you can also select to have them for pickup at your local Walmart.
Personal Note: Don’t miss out on this great figure! I can’t wait to have a few extras to repaint into extra gritty troops on Mimban!
A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge will commence in April.
Right now, registered Yakface forum members can vote on the theme. The categories are: Entertainers, Desert Dwellers, First Order Forces, Kit Bash Vehicles, Imperial Scavengers and Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy.

These seems to be no end to the number of AT-ST’s ($9.99) and certain 6″ figures ($2.99) in the supply chain at Ross. If you have a Ross in your area, it might be worth your time checking to see if they are still receiving Hasbro product from The Black Series. Good luck and let us know about your success (or lack thereof)!
