Since its reveal/leak, people have been curious about the pack-in display base for the 6″ Black Series Sergeant Jyn Erso (Eadu) figure. YouTube Reviewer KingofDragons has posted an in-hand review of this piece and it reveals it is an all-new base with pegs for figure’s foot holes. Jyn also includes a new E-11 blaster, her baton (collapsed), blaster pistol and removable breathing apparatus.
Just when you thought the Kubrick line of Star Wars products was dead, Medicom issues another (albeit uninspired) figure for attendees of the 20th Anniversary reception party at the Medicom Toy 2016 Exhibition. This Luke Skywalker Kubrick is based off of their original brown hair Early Bird Luke Skywalker from back in 2003.
Thanks to JediDefender for the heads up.
I’ve been receiving and reading multiple reports that Walmarts are once again getting shipments of the elusive 3.75″ Black Series figures including Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and Captain Phasma. Reports have come in from Virginia and Tennessee.

Born from the remnants of the Empire, the First Order emerged as a power to be reckoned with in the years following the battle of Endor. The First Order constructed massive fleets of next generation Star Destroyers and TIE Fighters, and bolstered surviving Stormtrooper legions with fresh recruits and powerful new weapons. Take command with the First Order Legion 7 figure Troop Builder Pack!
Disney Store will also introduce Star Wars Legion Helmets, a series of eight vinyl collectible helmets inspired by the Star Wars Legion Helmet project launched in early 2014.
I received an interesting/unexpected email this morning from Walgreens regarding a Prototype Boba Fett which I had on preorder, but first a little background. This preorder was placed on 7/23 using a credit card which I had to have replaced due to a security breach at a national retail chain. I (and many collectors) was/were originally told that there was no way to update credit card information that was used to place the order(s). Fast forward 5 months and read the email I was sent…

For collectors in Mexico, it looks like the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series Prototype Boba Fett will be getting released as a Walmart Exclusive as seen in their holiday promotions.
Thanks to Mr Steel MEX for the tip.
Check out my local TRU today to see if they refreshed their stock of merchandise* and I was surprised find shelf tags the Star Wars Rebels Jedi Reveal Mission Series set.
*Another interesting observation, this particular store killed the entire new set up for the Star Wars line and went back to having 2 standard aisle for product. Weird.
UPDATE: ToysRUs.ca has this set up for preorder now with a 10/17 release date.
