Yakfinities #70: DROIDS

A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge is currently underway, and the theme is DROIDS.

So, roll up your sleeves and cobble together a droid of your own… or better yet, let’s see what kind of painting skills you’ve got too!   Or if that’s not your cup of tea, you can still check out the most recent entries by clicking here.

Personal Note:  The roundup report for Yakfinities #69 is coming soon – with over 150 custom entries, it’s taking longer than usual – apologies for the delay!

Upcoming Disney Store Black Series Exclusives Promo

 

Disney Stores are currently promoting their new exclusives Black Series figures coming in early November. As you can see in the image above (provided by Ryan F.) they are showing the 6″ Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton), Stormtrooper with Blast Accessories and Zuckuss. They also handing out an in store coupon right now for 25% off valid Nov. 8-11 so hopefully some/all of the exclusive hit in that timeframe.

Rumor Report: Star Wars “Story In A Box” Update

Right before NYCC, we posted a report about an upcoming $10 assortment of Hasbro figures referred to as Star Wars: Story in a Box. The first four figures include Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and R2-D2. After some further investigating, I’ve found there are four more of these sets (probably wave 2) that includes Princess Leia, Han Solo, Stormtrooper and Yoda. Watch for additional details on this product line soon.

As with all of our advanced rumor reports, details of these products are subject to change and/or cancellation altogether.

TBS 3.75″ @ Ross

Some Ross stores are getting in TBS 3.75″ figures for the ridiculously low price of $2.99 (Sandtrooper, Ponda Baba, Tusken Raider, Boba Fett – Prototype Armor).   Thanks to forum member EndorJunkie for the heads up!

Personal Note:  These former Walmart exclusive figures are great for army building and custom fodder; and really didn’t hit full circulation at Walmart due to some very bad previous wave assortments and terrible distribution.  I know that if I see these, I won’t pass them up at this price!
