Walmart is starting to prep for the arrival of Star Wars Rebels product with new signage in their toy aisle. Hopefully, actual Rebels action figures will arrive soon to fill it out.
We were sent this image this morning of an upcoming 6″ Black Series Exclusive Pack which includes repacks of 4 figures: Han, Slave Leia, Boba Fett and Greedo. Look for an update soon with more info on where (probably Costco or Sam’s Club) you can find this and when.
UPDATE: Juan Carlo sends us word that he found this at a Walmart in Monterrey Mexico for $999 Pesos ($77 US). No word yet on US distribution.
The Realm Recap is back again this week picking up where we left off with NYCC news as we touch on a few developments released through QnAs from various sites in attendance. Hot Toys surprises this week with the tease of a new 12” Stormtrooper – which may be more than meet the eye (oops, wrong franchise). 2015 LEGO set images were revealed/leaked this week, again running the gamut of source material and they all impress. Lots of Star Wars Rebels news this week with new (and free) shows, the return of James Earl Jones and Kanan getting an original story in 2015. This and much more in Episode 35 of The Realm Recap!
Also, if you prefer an audio-only version, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.’
Disney Store is holding their Star Wars Rebels in-store event this weekend offering free prizes and activities at scheduled times (see stores for details). But there are also sales to be had as they are offering Hasbro TBS 6″ figures for only $7.49 each.
Thanks to Corey from The Wolfpack Podcast for the report.

Images have been hitting the various social media feeds out there but this one in particular is quite interesting. Hot Toys’ Secret Base has on display a couple of licensor-pending sixth scale Stormtroopers but note the different heights? Could we in fact be getting a Han and Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise as well?
