Our friends at Jedi Temple Archives have posted an interesting article regarding the return of those Special Value Offer vehicle 2-packs that were available at ToysRUs back in October 2012. Head on over for the details on where and how you can find them in your area.
UPDATE: Check your Kmart stores as well as we’ve received a report that these are turning up there as well for $14.99 a set
Stephen Stanton (The Clone Wars) tweeted an image last night showing some signage at Walmart and you’ll notice that the release date for Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion is listed for October 3 – the same day the special airs on the Disney Channel. This contradicts the October 14 release date stated back in August. Signage could be wrong, or Walmart has an exclusive distribution deal with Disney/Lucasfilm.
Still need to track down the Prototype Boba Fett? Walgreens.com has unlocked their “Find a Store” feature to allow you to search for availability* at a store near you.
Thanks to The Collectors Cantina for the tip!

Facebook follower Lando Griffin sent in this photo of his find today of the “Jedi Reveal” exclusive from Toys”R”Us in Arizona. This score marks the first Star Wars Rebels 3-3/4″ figures to hit retail.
Nice find! Send in your reports if you find this as well.
UPDATE: We can also confirm that the Holographic Obi-Wan is 1 POA with ball-socket articulation at the neck.

Looks like product development at Hasbro for Episode VII is in full swing as seen above in this screen shot from the Speeder Bike development video released earlier today. While nothing is spoiled in terms of character names, you can see that there is a product labeled “SW E7 secondary hero battler”.
It goes without saying (but I will anyway) that Hasbro has been in “Episode VII mode” for a while now, the purpose of the post is to show the actual, observable “proof” that development has commenced.
ToysRUs is now offering their exclusive Battle on Endor set for $79.99 (Drop it to $59.99 and I’ll bite). Thanks to twitter follower @Cybertronprime for the heads-up.
How did Hasbro create the Black Series Speeder Bike — the first Star Wars toy vehicle made in a 6-inch scale – and its accompanying Biker Scout? In the first installment of Star Wars: From Concept to Collectible, the designers behind the fan-favorite Black Series line of action figures discuss making the new collectible set, from early ideas to design to finished product.
Whether a member of an undefeated empire or part of a rebel alliance, collegiate sports fans know what it means to be part of a legacy. Now college sports fans can celebrate their school pride with the power of the Force sporting a new collection of apparel and accessories featuring iconic designs from the Star Wars saga!
With the new Toys”R”us reset, obviously most of us are hoping this means better things for the collector lineup’s distribution. Today I came across some Wave 4 figures for the first time at a Toys”R”us; which was a sight for sore eyes.
Now is the time to start getting back to the hunt, but as always these days, your chances of success on toy runs are not what they used to be… but perhaps things may be back on the upswing?
Check out my local TRU today to see if they refreshed their stock of merchandise* and I was surprised find shelf tags the Star Wars Rebels Jedi Reveal Mission Series set.
*Another interesting observation, this particular store killed the entire new set up for the Star Wars line and went back to having 2 standard aisle for product. Weird.
UPDATE: ToysRUs.ca has this set up for preorder now with a 10/17 release date.

Forum member Grimace has shared several pics of Hasbro’s new Inquisitor’s TIE Advanced Prototype in the forums. It looks to me like Hasbro has hit another home run here, meaning all three of the new Rebels mid-size vehicles surpass most of Hasbro’s other recent efforts. Head on over to the forums for a closer look, and to share your thoughts.
For all you diorama fans, forum member Raylen has just revealed a special sneak peek at a new 3.75″ scale item I am guessing many of you are going to want to add to your collections. Soon, he will have them available for order at his site.
For now, head on over the forums and for a glimpse at what’s to come…
Personal Note: Shut up and take my money!
