Remember Star Wars Fighter Pods, those tiny little rubber super-deformed characters from 2012-2013? It looks like they are back rebranded as Micro Force. They are available in blind packs of 2 with 12 figures to collect in Series 1. The line starts here….
While on a toy run today, I swung by TJ Maxx… and stumbled onto a ton (and I mean a ton) of 2012-2013 Star Wars Hasbro product. Deluxe size vehicles, Angry Birds, Fighter Pods, Role Playing blasters, etc… and these are all items that Hasbro really thought would appeal to kids this past year.
In my humble opinion, this is just another sign that Hasbro has lost touch with their consumer base. I am hoping for a really strong showing at SDCC from the folks at Hasbro, because Hasbro, retailers and the fan base does not need another 2012 (or another first half of 2013).
ToysRUs is now offering their Exclusive Vintage Endor AT-AT with FREE Shipping and a FREE pack of Fighter Pods.
Thanks to Scott W. for the tip.
Target has started placing new Series 4 Fighter Pods products this week and in addition to the single packs, 7 packs and the Exclusive Tin, they have also placed the 2 new “Rampage” Battle Game packs. The Hailfire Droid Pack includes a Droideka*, Super Battle Droid*, Captain Typho and Galactic Marine and the Republic Gunship Pack includes Mace Windu*, Kit Fisto*, Han Solo (Hoth Gear) and a Royal Guard (Crimson Empire). Each set retails for $19.99.
* Exclusive to the set
Our friends at Galactic Hunter have alerted us to a new exclusive Fighter Pods Rampage tin hitting Target. It features the new Series 4 packaging with the Yoda line look and includes 18 Fighter Pods figures, 4 pods, spinfire launcher and Yoda tin. The set retails for $24.99 and should start hitting everywhere soon. Doesn’t look like it includes any (advertised) exclusives so it might be a pass unless collectors want the tin. Head on over to GalacticHunter.com for Adam’s full rundown of the figures.
As a follow up to our report earlier today, I ventured out to my local Walmart and found not only the MTT on clearance but other items as well. Click on through to check out what I found.
