Brand of Confusion: Walmart To Retain 3.75″ TBS Exclusivity Through 2017?

It seems like there is even more confusion surrounding how “exclusive” the 3.75″ Black Series figure are to Walmart. You read our previous post about older assortments being available through comic distributors, but according to Steve Evans at Hasbro, Walmart is retailing exclusivity through the remainder of 2017 via this SDCC QNA exchange between Hasbro and From4LOMtoZuckuss.

“For ’17 we’re definitely carrying on our relationship with Wal*Mart Black Series exclusive line just as is until the end of the year.”

SDCC vs Retail X-34 Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker

There still seems to be A LOT of confusion/misinformation  regarding the differences between the SDCC exclusive version of the X-34 Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker and the retail version hitting shelves in September. Steve Evans from Hasbro has posted what we hope clears things up once and for all.

Both exclusive and retail versions have the SAME ACCESSORIES* (sort of).
*Retail version has regular tunic material for Luke (SDCC has premium material)
Exclusive has premium display packaging, retail has closed box for speeder (does have window for figure)
Exclusive has more DECO on speeder
Exclusive has moving engine turbine, retail version doesn’t

Not mentioned is that Luke as a new likeness, different from the Black Series #21 and 40th Anniversary releases.

Target Exclusive 6″ TBS Figure for The Last Jedi?

Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.

We shall see…. we shall see.*
