By now most Target and Toys”R”us stores are putting out Hasbro’s latest Star Wars products, but how many of us are excited by what we are seeing?
I contend that what retailers now have in their Hasbro Star Wars sections is about as exciting as staring at a blank wall, but do you feel the same way? Head on over to the forums for an all-out honest opinion piece on the current situation, and feel free to share your thoughts as well after the jump!
Get yours now while still available.

Yak reader Darth Ray writes in with a story of a special project he and his son have been working on involving the new Star Wars Command game from Hasbro.
“My son was inspired by the latest episode of “The Realm Recap“. He has started painting (or should it be called re-painting?) Star Wars Command figures. He started with the Ewoks. The attached picture shows the painted Command Ewoks and the Hasbro/Lego Ewoks that inspired the design.” “We’ve always said a Star Wars license should something like this!”
Excellent work Ray! I think the Command line is a perfect “starter pack” for people that are interested in customizing but don’t want to tackle painting a more expensive action figure quite yet. The painting of Command figure could serve as a canvas for honing/developing skills before moving up to a larger scale.

Check those inboxes – HasbroToyShop is sending out shipping notifications today to collectors who ordered SDCC exclusives last week.
UPDATE: I tracked my packages enroute and it looks like a signature is required for delivery (via FedEx). You might want to check yours as well and make necessary arrangements for your order.
Looks like more of the Black Series product is finally hitting Target. Twitter follower @TheRealRazcal post this image from his store in Arkansas showcasing Dagobah “Macaroni Arms” Luke and Yoda.
