Look Familiar?

My oh my, what an uninspiring time the retail scene is these days for Star Wars…

5POA for the Solo line is front loaded with non-Solo movie figures,  6″ TBS is a rare store find at all, and TVC has kicked off with carry forwards that Walmart is pushing to the clearance section (hopefully this stops with Wave 2 and we see true peg space dedicated to them).

The only place worth even stopping to check out the Star Wars section at all in my neck of the woods is Target, who at least seems to be trying (but even there, the scene is pretty sad) .  How goes it in your area?

Meanwhile, in Mattel’s Jurassic World section…

New 3.75″ Diorama Stuff

Yakface Forums member and expert diorama prop builder Raylen has just posted another great item for all you customizers out there…  it’s a 3.75″ scale throne that can be used to seat various super articulated figures, such as this guy.

Share your thoughts in his forums thread, and if you’d like to add one of these thrones to your personal collection, simply follow this link!

Solo Toy Launch

If you went out hunting for new Star Wars product on Friday, chances are you were pretty underwhelmed by what was on the pegs (i.e. lack thereof).

Personally, I found a few things I wanted after driving around a bit, but it was pretty sad to see just how little retailers seemed to care about having new product out for the April 13 street date (I could not find one single carded figure anywhere – I struggle with calling  this as a “launch” at all).

If you did score some good stuff though, we’d love to hear about it and see pics in our forums.
