K & C Collectibles has added Topps Galactic Files Trading Cards, Clone Wars figure with vehicles, Roleplaying blasters, Attacktix game figures, Palm Talkers and Star Wars Transformers. Click the NEW PRODUCTS link under the Categories Section for a complete list of recently added items.
You may have noticed that some Walmart stores are resetting their sections for “The Black Series” and making extra space now for more 3.75″ figures.
Are you seeing this in your area? Could this mean some of the more “in-demand” figures in the classic scale will be arriving at retail soon (or to conincide with Force Friday)? Share your thoughts in the forums!
A recent post in the Elite Series Collectors group on Facebook confirms that Disney plans on continuing the die cast Elite Series figures as images for the Elite Praetorian Guard and First Order Judicial Trooper have been revealed.
Update: the image has been removed from the Facebook Group
Join Yakface and Flyguy as we discuss the highlights from SDCC as well as the recent product leaks for The Last Jedi in the lead up to Force Friday 2!
When it rains it leaks. Since Hasbro had these sets on display at SDCC, I feel comfortable is showing images of the Rathtar with Bala-Tik and Probe Droid with Darth Vader have been found at Kmart in Arizona. Both of which confirm our $19.99 pricepoint. Thanks to @agalaxynearby on Instagram for the alert. Click on through for a closer look.
The last unidentified vehicle that we revealed the other day has been discovered. The listing for “Tango Neon Speeder with Tango Neon Pilot” has hit Kmart in Arizona and is actually a Canto Bight Police Speeder with Canto Bight Police Officer. You can see an image of it on various social media outlets. Thanks to the crew at the Toy Run Facebook group for the heads up.
No, these aren’t a new type of walker in the Star Wars Universe. They are a new die cast segment from Hot Wheels where they take the familiar character car concept and apply it to all-terrain vehicles. The All-Terrain Character Cars feature die cast parts and working suspension and come in four and six wheel configurations. The cars have been found at Walmart include Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot, BB-8, First Order Stormtrooper and Darth Vader.
As we speculated a couple days ago with our exclusive reveal, we can now 100% confirm that there is a new blue and white Resistance A-Wing (with no Nerf) coming for The Last Jedi. It includes the Force Link play feature as well as a female pilot in green flight suit named Tallie. The packaging also confirms our rumor of a new two pack which we teased here.
Per our report, the A-Wing should retail for $29.99 and the two pack should be $14.99.
Seeing that a 3.75″ Star Destroyer playset for The Last Jedi is on the horizon, we can’t help but speculate on what this will end up looking like.
Will this be a dream playset that that captures the diorama essence of an epic movie environment like collectors have been begging for in the 3.75″ scale for over two decades now? Or will it feature over-exaggerated “play” features? Or could it be a well balanced mix? How big will it be? Will it feel worth the asking MSRP of $199.99?

Recently, our friends at Jeditemplearchives shared news of Target’s plan to merchandise clearance Star Wars items in their very own planogram section.
While traveling today, I came across a Target store that had just reset their clearance Star Wars items following these corporate guidelines (this store also had an endcap filled with at least 30 more 5poa figures from TFA and Rogue One and a ton of Ezra speederbikes).
What kind of clearance selection are you all seeing at your local Targets? How low do these products need to go for customers to put them in their carts? Share your thoughts after the jump!
