Released in the UK a couple weeks ago, reports are coming in that the Elite Series Die Cast First Order TIE Fighter Pilot is now available in the US exclusively at Disney Stores. This figure is not available online as of this post but if you’re interested you may wish to brave the post-holiday mall traffic to try to secure one of them as the die cast Elite Series line is on sale for $14.99 each.
Thanks to Pete V. for the heads up.
We are sad to report that Carrie Fisher has passed away after suffering a massive heart attack over the weekend. She will forever be in our hearts as Princess Leia Organa. Rest in peace.
The clearances continue as Target has started to mark down the 6″ Black Series Rogue One 3pk that includes Jyn, Cassian and Death Trooper Specialist. YMMV (Your mileage may vary) but clearances have been found from $41.98 to $29.98 all over the US. You’ll find the biggest discounts in metro areas that have the largest inventories on hand. Good luck and may the force be with you.

It looks like we may possibly see a running change to the upcoming Sergeant Jyn Erso (Imperial Ground Crew Disguise) figure as original solicitation imagery shows her wearing the commandeered helmet, while a new carded image as turned up showing it packaged separately. No official word on whether both will be available or if this is like the 6″ K-2SO “blaster/no blaster” production change.
Merry Christmas to you and yours from Yakface.com.

We have another as-of-yet unannounced figure to share today. This image comes from our source that discovered those four disney droidfactory astromechs we revealed. Details are scarce for this protocol droid other than it looks to be R-3PO. There is a theory that the build-a-droid/droidfactory program may expand to include protocol droids as there are a fair amount throughout the films to pull from. Click on through for a closer look.
