Several people have asked and now we have answers to how the case packs breakdown for the first wave of Forces of Destiny (FOD) figures. They are as follows:
Today we happy to share some new images for the upcoming Forces of Destiny assortment of products. Click on through to check out packaged and loose shots of Rey from Jakku, Sabine Wren, and the Deluxe Endor Adventure set including Princess Leia Organa and Wicket the Ewok.

Hasbro has sent word to distributors that open preorders/backorders for the 40th Anniversary Collection wave 1 (consisting of Han, Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan and R2-D2) will not be fulfilled as the wave has reached out of production status.
Joining all of the wave 2 card variants for the 40th Anniversary Collection, the Darth Vader Legacy Pack box has also received the text adjustment for the age recommendation – switching to all UPPER CASE. Since Target has given up the ghost on carrying this set, you can continue to find steady shipments of these hitting Walmart.
UPDATE: This text change also extends to the Darth Vader cardback inside the box making for 3 distinct carded versions:
“Red Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – lower case text
“Dark Eyes” variant – UPPER CASE text
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives.com have posted an article hinting that Hasbro might finally be upgrading the basic 3.75″ movie figure line with The Last Jedi with more than 5POA .
We can only hope this holds true considering the overall letdown the mainline 3.75″ toy line has been (and lack of retail success) over the past few years.
Head on over and check out what they had to say after the jump!

Tonight we spotlight the amazing custom work of expert customizer Evilivo, who has perfected Hasbro’s 3.75″ K-2SO by giving it a major upgrade in articulation (not to mention an enhanced paint job).
Hopefully we’ll see something along these lines in the Spring with the return of The Vintage Collection… until then (or if Hasbro disappoints), check out the tutorial he created so you can make your own after the jump!
The fact that Hasbro’s 5poa TFA figures are showing up at Five Below stores isn’t “new” information, but just how many of these figures never made it to primary retail outlets is amazing.
Hasbro just seems unable to get their product on a consistent distribution flow to big box retailers anymore – which of course that isn’t new information either!
But – if you are looking for some decent 5poa figures for about $5 each, and have a Five Below store in your area… well, you know the drill.
