New Elite Series Figures Coming Soon

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.

Elite Series TFA Han Solo Found

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!
