As many of our fellow collectors have experienced, retailers seem to be on their own schedule (feels like a store-by-store basis) on getting new product onto the pegs for Hasbro’s latest lineup of Star Wars merchandise.
So if you haven’t seen many signs of new stock yet, it might just mean the stores you are hitting just haven’t made it a priority yet. I’ve seen this slow trickle in my neck of the woods, then yesterday found a Target that had finally set aside some time and shelf space to get new items out.
So, don’t give up too early – and share your finds too (or lack thereof) after the jump!
If you went out hunting for new Star Wars product on Friday, chances are you were pretty underwhelmed by what was on the pegs (i.e. lack thereof).
Personally, I found a few things I wanted after driving around a bit, but it was pretty sad to see just how little retailers seemed to care about having new product out for the April 13 street date (I could not find one single carded figure anywhere – I struggle with calling this as a “launch” at all).
If you did score some good stuff though, we’d love to hear about it and see pics in our forums.
