The Yakface Toyguide updates continue with the addition of the Walmart Exclusive 6″ Battlefront Imperial Shock Trooper from The Black Series.
PROS: The Shock Trooper is a solid, no-brainer offering from Hasbro. Having a cross-sell product for the game required little additional investment other than a new deco for the existing trooper and a new attractive box. The deco for the figure is well applied for the most part, but discerning collectors may want to pick and choose from the available figures at retail in order to obtain the best product sample.
CONS: It is early yet to offer any real cons on the figure itself (other than the slight leg bowing due to the packaging) but the relaying of information from the manufacturer and retailer to collectors that this was even going to be available was/is lacking. There seems to be a disconnect between all parties in knowing what is available (and when) to the consumer. With the planned marketing and product release push that Star Wars Battlefront received, you’d think that tie-in promotional product such as this would be better communicated and advertised to the public.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
The Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series Darth Vader (Emperor Wrath) is now available to order through DrugStore.com.

As a follow up to Walmart’s press release regarding the Exclusive 6″ Black Series Battlefront Shock Trooper, I was able to receive definitive confirmation that it WILL NOT be available as part of this weekend’s Epic Weekend event.
Look for official details on its US release soon.
We’ve received an intelligence report from a trusted source that there are plans for an exclusive 6″ Black Series Trash Compactor scene in the works. Our rebel spy was able to see a newly sculpted head for the existing 6″ Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise. It is unknown at this time if it would include multiple figures (Han, Chewie, Leia, and Luke) or if it would be something like the recent Kmart Exclusive Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) as the concept is still looking for an official retail partner. More to come….
The follow up to Funko’s first Smuggler’s Bounty subscription box is coming soon. Can you resist?
