Target will be featuring an aisle end cap for 40th Anniversary of the Star Wars the week of April 16. The reset should include wave 1 of the 6″ figures on the Vintage style card backs, the 6″ Vader Early Bird/Legacy Pack and more (including that exclusive POP! holographic Qui-Gon Jinn).
Thanks to TargetGod for the intel.
Orders for Hasbro 40th Anniversary Collection figures are arriving on doorsteps from HasbroToyShop today. Twitter follower Rob received his R2-D2 in great condition as show above.
There has been a bit of confusion surrounding the retail partner for the 6″ 40AC R5-D4 figure. Original claims out of Toy Fair stated that it would be exclusive to Entertainment Earth, but the images from Hasbro indicated that GameStop would be offering the figure. We’ve received information that Entertainment Earth IS NOT carrying it and it will in fact be sold through GameStop/ThinkGeek.
Since I’ve received dozens of emails, links and images, I’ll state openly here that images for (some) the 40th Anniversary 6″ figures have shown up across social media (via Amazon.com.mx). We won’t be sharing the images publicly per Hasbro’s request. We will say the images confirm the some of the rumors, so watch VERY SOON for preorders to go live on these items and for their full (official) reveal this weekend at Toyfair in New York.
Update: Amazon Mexico has pulled down their links and images for those figures.
