A closed group on Facebook has posted an image showing the BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset has been found at Walmart in Sulphur, Louisiana. The on shelf “clearance” price is set at $178.00. If any of our readers are near that location, we’d love some additional images of the box.
In a surprising toy find, Yakface reader Bryan K. sends in visual proof of finding the Galactic Heroes BB-8 playset that was shown on display back in February at New York Toy Fair.
We’ve been wondering whatever happened to this, and there had been speculation that it was cancelled. But it’s been found at a Walmart store, and our assumption is you’ll start seeing these at retail in September.
Bryan also found this at the same store, but we’re not at liberty to share the image.
Personal Note: Seeing that we know the upcoming Hasbro 3.75″ “Mega Playset” also turns into BB-8, an educated guess tells us that this thing is going to be similar to this Galactic Heroes toy.
Speaking of playsets… it looks like Hot Wheels is going to have a Millennium Falcon Ahch-To Playset for Force Friday II. It feature Light Up features and 20 sounds and an exclusive Chewbacca (repack) character car.
(Sorry, can’t share the image.)

For over two decades now, many collectors have found themselves frustrated by a lack of playsets, dioramas, and basic environments to display their 3.75″ figures with.
But those days are coming to a close thanks to Galactic Trading Post, who is now offering some fantastic high quality plastic walls to satiate this need. To order these directly, click here.
If you’re on the fence about these, I can say based on the 6″ scale walls, their product is amazing. You can see a few pics of those in our forums.
Look what we have here – 3.75″ scale “Space Station” playsets available to order through Twelfthparsec.com!
These cool looking playsets are also modular, so you can start off with just specific rooms rather than the whole set.

Something wonderful has happened – after years on end, high quality modular diorama walls are now available for purchase from 3rd party seller, Galactic Trading Post.
I placed my first order last week, and already received them today. And I have to say, these might be the most exciting thing to happen to the hobby for me… since… heck, I don’t even know that I have EVER seen something this fantastic for displaying a collection.
My son (age 9) and his friend (age 8) went bonkers as well wanting to set them up. Pretty damn cool… hopefully we see a lot more out of these guys as for many of us, this could be a game changer in collecting.
You can check out a few pics that I snapped here, and be sure to visit their site – and place an order as they have some currently in stock as of this post.
After years on end of Star Wars fans being left out in the cold when it comes to dioramas and playsets, it looks like we may be seeing a 3rd party that could really help fill the void… GTP-Toys.
Right now they are offering some fantastic walls that are in line with 6″ scale figures, and have 3.75″ ones on the way (which is what I’ve personally REALLY been waiting for). Demand appears to already be high enough to put the 6″ scale ones (9-pack starter set) on back order. However, they do have a 2-pack starter set available here.
But just imagine – SOMETHING other than a plain shelf or a cardboard backer for people to display their action figures with! Each wall panel is separate, which allows you to create or recreate your favorite scenes… something I still can’t believe has been neglected by the official toy brand for over two decades now.
While browsing eBay last night, I came across an interesting upcoming Death Star playset, that according to the seller, is made by Takara/Tomy, and is scheduled for release in April. For a closer look, click here.
Who would like to see a more collector friendly version of a Death Star by Hasbro (or another company) compatible with the 3.75″ scale?
Hasbro may not care so much about collector support these days, but that doesn’t mean you have to be left out in the cold… as once again, Holeinthegroundpro comes to the rescue with another great new way to display your 3.75″ scale figures!
Check out some more details in our forums, and be sure to head on over to their site to secure your own diorama wall kit by clicking here.
If you pre-ordered a “Desert Den” playset from Twelfth Parsec, start keeping an eye on your email for a shipping notice as these have begun to arrive on the doorsteps of collectors.
Personal Note: Independent groups who are actually fans themselves are starting to take advantage of Hasbro’s negligence on the playset front, and hopefully we will see bigger and better things like this in the future.
On any note, head to the forums for a closer look.
