Can the 3.75″ SA line sustain itself?


Most of us want to see the 3.75″ SA figure line continue, right?  But does it really have to cost this much?  Especially when nearly everything else of comparable size/articulation costs consumers way less?

Is this really Hasbro’s only option to keep a decent articulated line going?  Or instead of full SA figures, why can’t they have the baseline articulation be around 10 points, and have a unified line with a MSRP around $8.99 (such as similar quality to THIS)?

Is a beyond 5POA line that’s more affordable too much to ask for?  Share your thoughts in the forums.

The Force Awakens (BAW) Figures Available at Dollar General


Chad Ryan writes in with word of finding the latest Build-A-Weapon figures from The Force Awakens at Dollar General.

If anyone is having trouble finding The Force Awakens figures keep your eyes open at Dollar General. Yes, I said Dollar General.I went to one in a small town called Arley, Alabama and found 6 figures. I picked up the FO Stormtrooper and the Flametrooper.

How Was Your Midnight Madness Experience?


All across the world, fans had their first crack at toys from the upcoming film… and from early reports, there wasn’t a whole lot of 3.75″ figures to go around in some areas.  Some places didn’t even receive a single 6″ figure in time.

But, many people also went home happy with their scores – how about you?  Happy?  Mad?  Will kids even have a shot at this stuff this weekend if distribution is as bad as this first night was in some areas?

Share your experiences and finds after the jump!

Target Clearances

target clearance deluxeAs you are likely aware, Target stores are marking down basically everything in their older Star Wars inventory prior to the Force Friday launch September 4.

Some stuff is down 50% now, including the 6″ scale deluxes at some stores for just $12.48 per forum member TVC15’s report (recall Target lowered the everyday price on these a while back once it became apparent that there wasn’t enough demand to move them at full retail of $39.99).

Personal Note:  If you’ve been holding out on these, the 6″ deluxes are pretty good, so passing on this price could lead to regret down the road...


Black Series Awakening at Target?


Over the weekend, forum member Jodo ran into something very few people have seen at a Target store in a long, long time… several new Black Series figures.  Not full cases, of course, since Target seems to reject the notion of giving their customers a full selection of Star Wars figures these days, but it still seems like a positive sign (I ran into some stores that also stocked last week, though it was as usual, just 2-3 figures at a time).

Keep those store reports coming in, and hopefully the last handful of figures from the final waves of pre-Episode 7 Black Series actually make it to the pegs in decent supply before the onslaught of product in September…
