Our friends at Jediinsider.com have posted some great SDCC pics for your viewing pleasure, showing off some of Hasbro’s new offerings… check them out here!
Personal Note: Seems like what we saw today is leaning in the right direction again for the 3.75″ brand. Who can’t be happy with that new 3.75″ scale Wampa? Or Probe Droid? Many of us in our forums have been pushing for those quite a bit the past 2 years, so maybe Hasbro actually IS listening more now (like they indicated in panels and interviews today)?
For all you Ewok fans our there, forum member JawaKing has listed some outstanding customs from our most recent Yakfinities Customzing Challenge (Tribal Aliens) on eBay. These each have an extremely reasonable “Buy it Now” price listed – to add some of these to your collection before they are gone, click here!
Target has finally begun the process of clearancing out product that has been desperately staring back at you for nearly the past year. While most of these are the “lower tiered” 5POA style toys that even the kids seem to have no interest in, you will also likely find items from TBS getting marked down significantly as well.
While it’s good to get out with the old, seeing what is on clearance, and more importantly, knowing what NEVER MADE IT to retail, is a chilling sign for just how bad the brand is being merchandised these days. We can only hope that Hasbro has a much better game plan for the upcoming two films and beyond and turns this frown upside down.
Head on over to the forums for some close up images of the items marked down at my local store in the STL area, as well as the markdowns (which are already significant)… and for a personal rant.
Forum member Peakob1 continues his relentless drive in creating amazing custom figures that Hasbro overlooked in their Clone Wars lineup. Check out his latest update after the jump!
SAGA TOYS, located just south of St. Louis off Highway 55, has restocked with a huge supply of Legacy era Star Wars items. If you’re ever in the St. Louis area, I highly suggest finding some time to check out their showroom of Star Wars, GI JOE, Transformers and various other toy lines.
If you have any questions please ask in our forums or check out their Facebook page.
One of our all-time favorite diorama builders has just wrapped up construction of one of his most impressive pieces to date, with his custom Fortress Defense Gate Playset.
You have to see this one to believe it – head on over to the forums and check it out after the jump!
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives.com have posted an article hinting that Hasbro might finally be upgrading the basic 3.75″ movie figure line with The Last Jedi with more than 5POA .
We can only hope this holds true considering the overall letdown the mainline 3.75″ toy line has been (and lack of retail success) over the past few years.
Head on over and check out what they had to say after the jump!

I haven’t been able to customize all that much lately, but I did manage to throw a handulf of customs together recently and I thought it would be fun to share – check them out after the jump!
If you placed a 3.75″ space walls order with GTP-Toys, then be on the lookout as these are starting to show up on doorsteps this weekend!

Tonight we spotlight the amazing custom work of expert customizer Evilivo, who has perfected Hasbro’s 3.75″ K-2SO by giving it a major upgrade in articulation (not to mention an enhanced paint job).
Hopefully we’ll see something along these lines in the Spring with the return of The Vintage Collection… until then (or if Hasbro disappoints), check out the tutorial he created so you can make your own after the jump!
Do you have customzing talent? Or a complete lack thereof? Either way, we invite you to join in our current customizing challenge in the Yakface Forums!
Any new custom figure from your imagination that falls under the loose banner of “Tribal Aliens” qualifies… so roll up your sleeves and throw a custom together in our latest Yakfinties right here!
The fact that Hasbro’s 5poa TFA figures are showing up at Five Below stores isn’t “new” information, but just how many of these figures never made it to primary retail outlets is amazing.
Hasbro just seems unable to get their product on a consistent distribution flow to big box retailers anymore – which of course that isn’t new information either!
But – if you are looking for some decent 5poa figures for about $5 each, and have a Five Below store in your area… well, you know the drill.
