** Sale ends Tuesday May 30th at 9AM EST US **
From reader “Chad”
Found mine wave 2 at Gamestop today. I got off work early and headed to TRU, nada. Target same thing. The Gamestop is in the same shopping center as Target and decided to go over there. The was a UPS truck in front of the store and when I walked in the manager of the store who I know said they were expecting wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary figures. Sure enough the UPS guy came in and what was on the cart? A box of wave 2 40th figures. The manager opened the box and I got the Jawa, DS Commander, Sand People and Stormtrooper. I called a buddy of mine and he got the rest of them. You may want to check Gamestop if you are having trouble find them.
A few well timed tweets from us this afternoon resulted in Twitter follower @1JosephBOrtiz scoring wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Collection of 6″ figures from his local TRU in Arizona.
Reports are coming in (and being posted on various Facebook collector groups) that Wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Collection is starting to hit Toys”R”Us across the US. Time to start popping into your local store if you’ve taken it out of your regular toy runs.
It was inevitable but HasbroToyShop has just removed the link and page for the Star Wars Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) figure, officially putting an end to its availability at the MSRP.
UPDATE: this is weird, despite the search for the term “Luke” or “40th anniversary” turning up zero results, the direct link for Luke is still there. I still wouldn’t expect any more quantities to become available.

Roll into your local GameStop if you still need to scavenge their exclusive 6″ R5-D4. Don’t blow a motivator though if they are out of stock.
Thanks to @scottfromtulsa for the report.

Reports are that from approximately 2:15-2:25pm the Celebration Exclusive Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) available on HasbroToyShop.com. While not completely out of the question, I would think that was the last of them to be had at retail price.
Congrats to any and all who were able to secure one or two.

Despite assurances that the 6″ 40th Anniversary figures would be pre-punched for retail sales, it seems like there is at least one figure that this claim didn’t necessarily apply. There are samples for the Star Wars Celebration exclusive Luke Skywalker: X-Wing Pilot figure that made it into hands of collectors with the punch intact. While this isn’t anything to covet for majority of collectors, there is a segment of the community that this will surely interest.
Thanks to trashtone for the info and for his aid in acquiring this sample.
There seems to be a touch of confusion surrounding the Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker in regard to the card back. The photography shown on HasbroToyShop today doesn’t convey the reflective quality of the special foil treatment it has, leading to claims that the card back is different. We can confirm that it is the EXACT SAME as what was sold at Star Wars Celebration. The two products were simply photographed under different lighting conditions and at different angles. DO NOT overpay for the Celebration Exclusive “foil card” version.
HasbroToyShop has updated (2:20pm ET) and is now offering the Celebration Exclusive 6″ 40th Anniversary Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) for a limited time. Good luck and may the Force be with You.
