Our latest Yakfinities Customizing Challenge has just wrapped up! Check out the dozens of great custom figures, creatures and vehicles made by Yakface forum members after the jump!
Walmart has finally given up the glut of 6″ TBS figures from The Force Awakens and Rogue One – unable to sell some of these even at $5.00 each, some stores have lowered the price to mere pennies per figure in an effort to dump inventory (three cents each, to be exact). Be on the lookout in your area, and you might find Brickseek helpful in your searches.
As many of our fellow collectors have experienced, retailers seem to be on their own schedule (feels like a store-by-store basis) on getting new product onto the pegs for Hasbro’s latest lineup of Star Wars merchandise.
So if you haven’t seen many signs of new stock yet, it might just mean the stores you are hitting just haven’t made it a priority yet. I’ve seen this slow trickle in my neck of the woods, then yesterday found a Target that had finally set aside some time and shelf space to get new items out.
So, don’t give up too early – and share your finds too (or lack thereof) after the jump!
If you went out hunting for new Star Wars product on Friday, chances are you were pretty underwhelmed by what was on the pegs (i.e. lack thereof).
Personally, I found a few things I wanted after driving around a bit, but it was pretty sad to see just how little retailers seemed to care about having new product out for the April 13 street date (I could not find one single carded figure anywhere – I struggle with calling this as a “launch” at all).
If you did score some good stuff though, we’d love to hear about it and see pics in our forums.
If your local Target store starts putting out Solo launch toys early, don’t be surprised to get a “denied” message at the register… except for one group of items that are being allowed for sale.
A new customizer recently joined our forum ranks, and has posted several outstanding creations for your viewing pleasure.

Yakface forum member mousedroidhoojib seems to have a fun new update every week, – check out all the recent customs he’s made after the jump!
Yakface forum staffer localgotal is back again with yet another round of Concept Series figures he’s created. This latest update continues his recent theme of great figures that Hasbro should make or release again in honor of what we hope is a successful Sail Barge campaign!
With just over 8 days to go, and as of this post, the count is up to 3,663 Sail Barges backed.
Can we hit the magic number of 5,000? How many of our readers still intend to help make this amazing toy a reality? Let us know, and remember, the clock is ticking.
