Target.com now has their exclusive 3.75″ Force Link Return of the Jedi 3 pk in stock.
Thanks to Dan at StarWarsCollector.com for the heads-up.
Update: Now out of stock
Hasbro is committed to the Force Link technology in their 3.75″ action figure line and it looks like that trend will continue with products for Solo: A Star Wars Story. We can expect to get at least one Force Link Starter Set (bracelet with a pack-in figure) and possibly in another “flagship” type release in April 2018. Additional details (UPCs/SKUs etc.) for these and other 2018 products will be posted once we have them.
PROS: Sometimes a figure comes along and it is exactly what it needs to be: a perfect representation of the character as first revealed from an iconic scene in a film. No bells and whistles (aside from Force Link), soft goods or superfluous articulation required. After nearly two years, this iteration of Luke Skywalker is just that. This figure, for me, succeeds where the the 3.75″ and 6″ Black Series figures fail due to the utilization of the plastic cloak. The stoic expression is captured well in this scale and the overall sculpt of the body is nicely detailed and textured to convey fabric where implied.
CONS: The Force Link phrases don’t sound much like Mark Hamill (at least in this version of the figure) and sound a tad cartoonish and generic.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

No, there is another. I don’t recall a time when packaging variant were so prevalent with a new line look but Dan over at Star Wars Collector as posted the discovery of one for the 3.75″ Force Link Yoda. Which one have you seen?
