Finally, Walmart has corrected their inflated pricing for their exclusive TVC Mimban Stormtrooper to $12.99. Now if they could just restock them.
Update: Using the Walmart.com chat feature, I was able to confirm that when the product is in stock, price adjustments can be made to your orders for the lower price point until April 9, 2019.
After spending a few hours searching this morning, I managed to stumble across a new listing for an unannounced Vintage Collection figure: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise). Perfect for the upcoming Barge and rumored Tatooine Skiff, right? No word yet if this is exclusive to Walmart, but based on its UPC, that is not out of the realm of possibility. Maybe we’ll learn more about this at Toy Fair next month. The pertinent info has been added to our Master List of UPCs and SKUs.
Entertainment Earth has added a few (former) Black Series and Walmart Vintage and Force Link Exclusives to their site. Head on over to pick up 6″ Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton), Zuckuss, TVC TIE Fighter and/or Kessel Mine Escape Playset.
We’ve updated our running list of upcoming and rumored products slated to hit stores and online throughout 2019. We’ve purged most of the released 2018 items from the list but they can still be found here for your reference.

As a follow-up to our rumor report (and hints) from November 2018, word is we can look forward to (at least) 3 vehicles at retail for the Vintage Collection in 2019. Two are Original Trilogy related and the third is from Episode IX. More as we learn more…
The biggest complaint so far with Hasbro’s Galaxy of Adventures figures is the laziness in execution stemming from the recycling of previously used sculpts for the first two waves. Things may be changing in that regard in late 2019 as more new figures are introduced as well as vehicles and beasts. What is even more interesting is that we’re hearing of a potential scale change too (comparable scale and price to the 5” Marvel Infinity War line). That would essentially mean that there wouldn’t be two competing 3.75” lines vying for collectors dollars with just the Vintage Collection remaining. Toyfair 2019 is next month so we’ll have to see how/if/when this plays out.
While still “no longer available”, Walmart has updated the listing for the Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure to include a carded shot but also, comically, still shows the crochet thread as the primary image.
Thanks to Jason M. for the update.
UPDATE: back in stock
Sponsors DorksideToys and Entertainment Earth are now taking preorders for Vintage Collection Wave 4.
Rey (Island Journey). Mimban Stormtrooper. Elite Corps Clone Trooper. Three TVC figures we all thought we’d have by now (although Rey is enroute to collectors as we speak) but now it sounds like the next wave of Vintage figures will be following that trend of delayed gratification and will be available in March 2019. Preorders should still open next month… hopefully.
Amazon currently has an unbelievable low price of $29.99 on the Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank.
UPDATE: Sold out at the $29.99 price
