A new Disney Store Elite Series Droid Gift Pack has been found at the Imagineering Campus Disney Store in Glendale, CA. The set includes BB-8, C-3PO and R2-D2 and retails for $60.00. Thanks to luchador71 for the heads-up.
Members of the Elite Series Collectors group on Facebook are reporting* the discovery for 3 “new” Elite Series figures coming soon to Disney Stores in the UK (and the US). Soon, you be able to add Riot Gear Stormtrooper, Finn with Lightsaber and Squad Leader Stormtrooper to your collection. Also of interest is a slight packaging refresh for the line which looks to universalize the box to cut down the cost of printing, requiring only a sticker to differentiate each character.
Thanks to Corey for First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.

Released in the UK a couple weeks ago, reports are coming in that the Elite Series Die Cast First Order TIE Fighter Pilot is now available in the US exclusively at Disney Stores. This figure is not available online as of this post but if you’re interested you may wish to brave the post-holiday mall traffic to try to secure one of them as the die cast Elite Series line is on sale for $14.99 each.
Thanks to Pete V. for the heads up.
Today we’ve received our first look at Disney Store’s Exclusive line on Premium Elite Series Figures. These high-end versions include 32 points of articulation, soft goods and interchangeable accessories.
Look for Rey and Kylo Ren on November 15 and Leia and Darth Vader on November 29.
Thanks to usetheforce305 (via toy_capture) for the image.
UPDATE: An important detail for this line is that the figures are approximately 12″ tall and are plastic, NOT die cast.
UPDATE 2: I ran over to my Disney Store at lunch and snapped a quick comparison/scale pic of Disney’s Marvel Ultimate Series Premium Action Figure line and also received verbal confirmation of the Premium Elite Series being a 12″ line. Click on through for the image.
Yakface reader Charlie G. writes in with store report after finding the Han Solo Elite Series figure this morning in Lutz, FL:
Just wanted to say I was at a Disney Store Outlet this morning and purchased the Han Solo you guys recently mentioned. The store also had about 12 of the First Order Squad Leaders figures in stock but I passed on it. The outlet bizarrely only received two Han Solo figures, one of which I purchased. Happy Hunting!
