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.
Our spy was also privy to discussions about Hasbro really wanting to bring back figure display stands/bases back into the 3.75″ product line up. These too are being shopped as exclusives but no official retail partner has signed on yet. More to come…
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….
Walmart.com will be offering their exclusive 6″ Black Series Battlefront Imperial Shock Trooper for order soon. Watch for the link via social media in a few days.

Only 50 days until The Force Awakens and Star Wars Action News hosts Marjorie and Arnie couldn’t be more excited. Tickets have been purchased, plans made, and the countdown is on.
But for collecting it may be easier to list the items that don’t have Star Wars tie-ins instead of those that do. Soup, bottled water, apples, coffee creamer, El Paso Tacos! On this week’s show the hosts sift through the plethora of items and tell you which are the cool ones to hunt for.
With new waves of Hasbro figures hitting shelves, Black Series exclusives from Walmart, Target, and K-Mart, and where you can find Wave 2 of the new Force Awakens
figures, it’s all on this week’s Star Wars Action News

Thanks for the report Bob!
We’re receiving several reports (like the one above) that shipping notifications are been sent out for the Kmart Exclusive 6″ Black Series Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) figure.
Be sure to keep an eye on their website as well as it has gone up again (intermittently) today for preorder.
