6″ Mimban Stormtroopers Still Arriving

There have been reports of Walmart stores receiving more shipments of the 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper recently, and this morning I saw the same thing.

If you’re looking to add to your ranks, it might worth your time to stop by your local Walmart to see if they have received new shipments (or are receiving for the first time).  Happy hunting!

Hasbro’s Bucket Droid

While Hasbro’s performance over the past year(s) has been pretty disappointing for most 3.75″ fans, I must say they surprised me with the attention they gave the new R1-J5 droid in the Resistance toy line.

I highly recommend picking up this figure if you see it, even if you are passing on the rest of the line.  This is a cool toy and reminds me of the product they were pushing a decade ago – check out more pics of this droid (including his removable part features) in the forums.

Kmart.com orders

Kmart.com orders from their  $7.50 TVC sale are showing up, and as most others, my order was wrong.  The above figures do not appear to be Death Troopers or Dr. Aphra.

Personal Note:  At least these figures arrived very mint on package (they handled the contents way better than I expected and these might be the best condition cardbacks on TVC that I’ve seen), but it’s still not what I ordered.  I’m too lazy to go through the hassle of returning these, and will find a customizing use for the figures, but I won’t be ordering from them again.  For anything. 

And I apologize to any of our readers that got duped like I did.   

Walmart Clearances

If you’ve been at your local Walmart lately, you may have noticed that the toy aisles are resetting, clearing out the old, and making room for the new.

Among the clearance items you will likely find are products from Solo:  A Star Wars Story, and you might want to scan them because the marked clearance price may not reflect the full markdown.
