It appears that the often maligned Saga Legends assortment of figures has been placed on clearance at Target. Reader Rich S. writes in with a report from Spokane, WA on his find.
PROS: The Mission Series sets (and Saga Legends figures in general) have come a long way since their inception. Sure, you’ll still run into some jacked paint apps here and there, but Hasbro has made these two relatively simplistic figures in to some of the best incarnations in this outfit ever. Seriously, grab a copy of The Ultimate Action Figure Collection and compare the sculpts of these figure to previous versions. Taking articulation out of the equation, it’s hard to find fault with either Luke or Han.
CONS: Due to their limited articulation, these figure won’t be riding a Tauntaun anytime soon, unless you have some Vintage Kenner ones laying around –admittedly we didn’t see if they’d even fit.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.
We’ve been wondering for a while what the deal is with Hasbro’s Digital Release Commemorative sets, well wonder no more as we can now confirm that the Star Wars saga is coming via digital release through Vudu.com. The url (vudu.com/starwars) is currently inactive, but Walmart is now displaying marketing with the announcement stating an April 10 availability. Click the image above for a closer look.
Thanks to swshadow07 for the image.
Update: No fooling, it is real (thanks to Aric R. for the link)
Update 2: Links have been removed from Vudu.com
Toys”R”us stores are starting to jack up the price on the single Legends figures. While other retailers have kept these in the $6 range, Toys”R”us apparently thinks they can get quite a bit more. The price is pretty outrageous, in my opinion, especially since this line is supposed to be more economical for the kids (so we’re told).
Head to the forums to see what these will probably ring up for at the register if you decide to purchase any of these at your local Toys”R”us, and share your thoughts!
Better late than never. Flyguy and Yakface are back to break down the latest collecting news from the past week. On this episode, we discuss the new Black Series products hitting eBay, new product listings hitting Target’s DPCI database, the confusion around the cancelation/discontinuation of some Saga Legends case assortments and Hasbro’s absence from presenting at Celebration Anaheim. Funko continues to churn out product this week including the return of a retired POP bobblehead as well as several exclusives planned for Celebration. Play Arts Kai figures made quite and impression on collectors this week with the reveal of not one, but two figures: the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett. Will these figures tempt you to the dark side? All of this plus Celebration news, reviews and our latest toy purchases, acquisitions and more on Episode 57 of The Realm Recap!
Also, if you prefer an audio-only version, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.
Reader Tim M. sends this report (and reminder) from his local Kohl’s store in Sacremento
Went to Kohl’s today in Sacramento area of California and came across this end cap of Rebels figures, the 2 packs were $14.99 with 10% off.
Thanks Tim! I really like that display tray that they are sitting in too. Hmmm….
In what will surely provide great joy and additional grist for the mill to a certain segment of collectors, there is word from Andrew’s Toyz via Facebook that Hasbro has discontinued current cases assortments for the Saga Legends/Rebels line.
Hasbro has discontinued the current Saga Legends figure assortments and will not be making additional shipments. We may receive some cases of Wave 7, but we are not sure at this time. While unconfirmed, this is likely to devote resources towards The Force Awakens product line.
We have reached out to Hasbro via Hunter PR for any comment.
UPDATE: We have clarification from our sponsor at DorksideToys, the current cases assortments are sold out (not canceled) and won’t see another production run.
