There seems to be a touch of confusion surrounding the Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker in regard to the card back. The photography shown on HasbroToyShop today doesn’t convey the reflective quality of the special foil treatment it has, leading to claims that the card back is different. We can confirm that it is the EXACT SAME as what was sold at Star Wars Celebration. The two products were simply photographed under different lighting conditions and at different angles. DO NOT overpay for the Celebration Exclusive “foil card” version.
HasbroToyShop has updated (2:20pm ET) and is now offering the Celebration Exclusive 6″ 40th Anniversary Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) for a limited time. Good luck and may the Force be with You.
Out of stock (2:55pm ET)

Several readers have been asking “when will HasbroToyShop open orders for the 6″ Black Series Exclusives from SDCC 2016?” It is a valid question considering Hasbro’s “go live” times have had a track record of unpredictability. Click on through for our breakdown* of the previous five (2001-2015) SDCC exclusives.
Tomorrow, HasbroToyShop will be announcing the go-live date for the SDCC Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kylo Ren and Jyn Erso 6″ Black Series figures.
UPDATE: Although subject to change, HasbroToyShop is planning on having the Convention Exclusives available to order on Tuesday, August 9th. The product will be located in the “EXCLUSIVES” category. No phone orders will be accepted. All Convention Exclusives are excluded from any promotions and discounts.
EW.com has revealed two new 6″ Black Series exclusives set for release at Celebration Europe and SDCC. The first is Kylo Ren with alternate “unmasked head”, Vader’s charred helmet and First Order banner ($34.99). The second, is Obi-Wan Kenobi complete with soft goods robe and table which lights up a holographic Princess Leia. ($44.99)
Head to EW.com for the full details.
The Realm Recap returns this week with the latest in Star Wars collecting news. On this episode, Flyguy and I discuss the availability (or lack thereof) of the SDCC Exclusive First Order Stormtrooper that was briefly available on HasbroToyShop.com last week – plus new merchandising and marketing hitting stores prior to Force Friday. Christmas in July was clearly on Gentle Giant’s mind as they revealed their holiday themed Jumbo Salacious Crumb for PG Members. Did this cause you to laugh maniacally? LEGO leaks continue to trickle out as another list of products for 2016 hit the web with a couple interesting reveals. With Episode VII news, Rogue One filming about to begin and our developing addiction to Topps’ Card Trading app, Episode #71 of The Realm Recap is “groomed” for your enjoyment.
Also, if you prefer an audio-only version, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.
Just a quick reminder that the exclusive 6″ First Order Stormtrooper will be available starting tomorrow on HasbroToyShop.com. Good luck, and MTFBWY. Be sure to follow us on social media (Facebook & Twitter) for instant notification of its availability.
Update: Available as of 11:23am ET
Update 2: Out of stock 11:30am ET
Hasbro will be selling their SDCC Exclusives including the First Order Stormtrooper via HasbroToyShop starting July 28. There is no need to constantly refresh their site immediately following SDCC. But still, plan accordingly.
HasbroToyShop now has the new Black Series Clone Commander Wolffe and Imperial Navy Commander in stock. You can use coupon code “Memorial15” for 15% off your order plus free shipping.
After listing some upcoming 3.75″ scale Black Series figures for $9.99 last week, Hasbrotoyshop.com has bumped up the price by three bucks. Special thanks to forum member darth_sidious for this information.
Personal Note: As for myself, I was on the fence with Chewbacca and Dutch at $9.99, but a $12.99 price tag turns me into not wanting those particular figures in the least. And definitely not the Vader. All of these are basically retreads or are using mostly existing parts, and for that much money, Hasbro needs to do better. Disagree? Share your thoughts after the jump!
