Well if this doesn’t scream vintage flashback, I don’t know what does. There are multiple reports on the 6″ Elite Series Facebook Group of collectors finding brown hair and yellow hair variants of the Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise at Disney Stores.
Yahoo has posted an exclusive (i.e. official) first look at several exclusive item coming this Thursday, May 25 to Disney Stores. Head on over to check out the Elite Series Han and Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise Two Pack, ornaments, figurine/statue, pins set, Tsum Tsums and more.
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.
