There is Another… Playset… sort of

As we speculated a couple weeks ago, there is a version of the BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset that includes the Force Link bracelet. We’ve seen the version without the bracelet leaked via Amazon.es but now you can see the second version in alternate packaging has leaked out and is on-shelf at Target via an Instagram post from ToyThugShow (swipe left on the Instagram image to see it.)

Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the heads-up.

Rumor Report: 3.75″ Galaxy Figure Multipack

We have another decoded Target DPCI to share today and it was the last one on our original list (posted here). The others were revealed here yesterday. This item is a “Star Wars Galaxy” Multipack that includes one figure from each of the serialized episodes (I-VIII). There are probably some good ol’ evergreen characters that will probably be included in here like Vader and Luke, but who do you think they chose to represent The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi? 

The DPCI is 087-06-8398, (which is now active on Brickseek) retail price is $39.99 and has an estimated October 1 release date.

Leave a comment on whom you’d like to see. And yes, they are all basic (5 POA) figures.

BB-8 Adventure Playset Base @ Retail

In a surprising toy find, Yakface reader Bryan K. sends in visual proof of finding the Galactic Heroes BB-8 playset that was shown on display back in February at New York Toy Fair.

We’ve been wondering whatever happened to this, and there had been speculation that it was cancelled.  But it’s been found at a Walmart store, and our assumption is you’ll start seeing these at retail in September.

Bryan also found this at the same store, but we’re not at liberty to share the image.

Personal Note:  Seeing that we know the upcoming Hasbro 3.75″ “Mega Playset” also turns into BB-8, an educated guess tells us that this thing is going to be similar to this Galactic Heroes toy.

Cardback Shrinkage for The Last Jedi Basic Figures

Our friend and First Order Transmissions co-host Corey has gotten his mechanical hand on the first 11 basic figures from The Last Jedi. Interestingly, Hasbro has elected to scale down the cardbacks once again similar to what they did for the “Lava Vader” and Star Wars Rebels line looks.

Stay tuned for additional images and reviews for all of the first 11 figures coming soon.
