It’s All In The Last Jed-Eyes

The Target Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker Ahco-To Island is hitting stores pretty heavily now so you may want to wait, if you have been, instead of ordering online. The reason is that there seems to been a varying degree of “eye deco” applied to the reclusive Jedi Master. This morning, my store put out 4 for the sets (shown above) and some have darkened skin paint apps while others, a much lighter treatment or none at all.

New Hot Wheels Battle Rollers Listing for Solo

A new Hot Wheels item has turned up on Brickseek. I managed to find a listing for “Hot Wheels Star Wars Lando Pegasus” which turns out to be another vehicle that is part of the Battle Rollers assortment. If our theory on the coding is correct, this should be a Lando Calrissian with Millennium Falcon item. I added the pertinent UPC and Walmart SKU to our Master List for easy reference.
