Remember the days post-SDCC where collectors would spend their free time refreshing HasbroToyShop’s website in order to try to score their exclusives? Hasbro has updated their site today narrowing that period down considerably by announcing that exclusives will go on sale sometime on August 13. Bookmark this page for reference and make sure your order info is up-to-date for quicker checkout.
Those on the hunt for the 6″ Black Series Jaina Solo may want to bounce on over to HasbroToyShop as she is currently in stock.
Update: Out of stock
Not that you needed reminding, but tomorrow (9/20) is the day you need to squat by your computer or mobile device in hopes to acquire the 6″ Black Series Clone Captain Rex. I would expect this to go up for sale sometime in the morning. Make sure your HasbroToyShop account is in order and you are logged in, you have funds ($24.99 + shipping) available if paying by PayPal. Remember, discount codes WILL NOT work so don’t even bother. Good luck and MTFBWY!

Twitter follower @j5unD sends us an amazing report that his order for the Star Wars Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot), that had been languishing in his shopping cart since April 25, filled and shipped yesterday. See the enclosed images for his proof. Crazy!
UPDATE: As a follow up to yesterday’s report, Jason sent a pic of his Luke which arrived safe and sound. We have added it to the gallery of images after the break.
Reports are that from approximately 2:15-2:25pm the Celebration Exclusive Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) available on HasbroToyShop.com. While not completely out of the question, I would think that was the last of them to be had at retail price.
Congrats to any and all who were able to secure one or two.
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.
