Force of Destiny Endor Adventure Set

Managed to pick up the Princess Leia and Wicket Endor Adventure set over my lunch break at my local Target (Medina, MN). They had these in stockroom  as well as the Rey Extendable Staff (which I passed on). As a reminder, retail for the Endor Adventure set is $34.99 with DPCI 087-06-9292. I’ll get my girls to give their thoughts on this set later tonight.

(Sorry if this purchase triggers those (you know who you are) that can’t stand Hasbro marketing to kids or to parents looking to share their love of Star Wars with their progeny.)

Target Exclusive 6″ TBS Figure for The Last Jedi?

Upon revisiting our Target DPCI list we posted on July 2, one of the listings (087-06-8397) is now updated with a new coded description: “E8 BL Tango Black”. Since it is pretty specific and is reported as having a 10/1 release date and $19.99 price point, we suspect this may be an exclusive figure for The Last Jedi.

We shall see…. we shall see.*

Rumor Report: The Last Jedi SWU Figure Assortment

Remember how things were broken down for The Force Awakens 3.75″ basic figures? Figures and vehicles were grouped into 4 categories: “Forest”, “Snow”, “Desert” and “Space”. For The Last Jedi, the Star Wars Universe (SWU) is broken down into two categories, “Orange” and “Teal”. These color designation may have some alternate definition later on, but for now this is how they are being grouped.

More to come….

Rumor Report: Details For The Black Series on Force Friday II

As we continue to gather details for Force Friday II in September, we’ve managed to assemble a preliminary “rumor” list of two waves of Black Series figures slated for release for the event. Wave 1 has been nailed down for a while but Wave 2 has some “newness” to it.

For a few details regarding the basic (non-Black Series) figure line, be sure to check out tonight’s episode of First Order Transmissions as I’ll be breaking down the first 3 waves of figures.

Black Series Gree Lands in Australia

Realm Recap co-host Flyguy reports that the Toys”R”Us Exclusive Commander Gree has started arriving at store in Australia as well. Good on the rest of the world getting them in a timely manner as its usually everyone but the US that gets the shaft on exclusives.

Clearance Season at Target

Target has finally begun the process of clearancing out product that has been desperately staring back at you for nearly the past year.  While most of these are the “lower tiered” 5POA style toys that even the kids seem to have no interest in, you will also likely find items from TBS getting marked down significantly as well.

While it’s good to get out with the old, seeing what is on clearance, and more importantly, knowing what NEVER MADE IT to retail, is a chilling sign for just how bad the brand is being merchandised these days.  We can only hope that Hasbro has a much  better game plan for the upcoming two films and beyond and turns this frown upside down.

Head on over to the forums for some close up images of the items marked down at my local store in the STL area, as well as the markdowns (which are already significant)… and for a personal rant.

Rey Not to Be Included in Monopoly Set After All

Last year during the height of the #WheresRey campaign, Hasbro addressed parent/fan/collector concerns regarding the omission of Rey as a game piece in the Monopoly The Force Awakens Set.

Today, the Chicago Tribune has posted a follow-up and “due to insufficient interest”, the game won’t be updated to include her (in the U.S.). But all is not lost as the representative for Hasbro states that the piece was in fact made and is available through Hasbro’s Customer Service department.
