Facebook member Jonathan S. reports finding wave 14 of the 6″ Black Series line (Snoke, Jaina, Rose) at Meijer in West Lafayette, IN.
Target has quite a few sales going on this week in the Star Wars section, but perhaps none are as enticing as the deals on Hasbro’s 3.75″ vehicle assortment.
Personal Note: If you’ve been holding out on these, now is the time to take the plunge (besides, Hasbro did a great job on these, so go ahead and drop a bit of cash, they are totally worth it!).
Walgreens and Toys”R”us both have some decent Star Wars sales going on this week, and Walmart stores continue to clearance out “oddball” items that don’t really fit into their planogram. For more details, or to share your own sales/clearances finds, click here!
When the big box stores like Toys”R”us, Walmart and Target aren’t putting any products out that you want, keep in mind there are other outlets like Barnes and Noble that might surprise you.

If you’re looking to add Hasbro’s new Obi Wan Kenobi and Yoda figures from The Last Jedi line look, be on the lookout as these have made it into St. Louis area Target stores now.
Good luck and let us know if you’ve found these at retail!
If you’re interested in adding a mostly recycled vehicle from two years ago to your collection, the First Order “Force Link” Tie Fighter has hit Walmart stores (found in the St. Louis area).

So many reports are coming in on social media of various products from The Last Jedi being stocked on shelves ahead of the September 1 street date. It seems at this point, every major retailer has had specific stores with product leaks from their stockroom.
In most instances, the product won’t ring up, but in some smaller chains it will, and some of the bigger chains are over-riding the “do not sell” message at the register out of confusion or whatever reason(s).
So, who all has seen product in the stores thus far? What are your impressions of the “in person” quality? Are you feeling this line will be more successful at retail than TFA and Rogue One? Share your thoughts here or in the forums!
I came across my first TLJ item on Thursday at a Walmart in my area (Ski Speeder w/ Poe Dameron). Even though the store had put out a full display of this vehicle (price tag $39.72), as I was afraid of, the register denied the sale.
The employee at the register said he thought “The product had been recalled because of lead paint.” – the customer behind me (a mom and her daughter) stated, “Oh my gosh!”
Obviously, that is not the case and I explained to them both that Disney must have a street date on the product since it’s for an upcoming movie. But Hasbro/Disney, please stop these street dates. Let your retail partners sell the product when a customer is wanting to buy it. This tight lip product reveal policy, and subsequent “Do Not Sell” at the register is tightening the window of product to actually be sold, and also confusing store employees and consumers alike.
UPDATE – One of our readers (Joe H) was able to pick this up at retail in his area, and he posted some great loose pics for us on our Facebook page. A few of them are in our forums for your viewing pleasure. Just click on the image above to see them.
Also, the release date for these items officially is September 1st, aka Force Friday.
You may have noticed that some Walmart stores are resetting their sections for “The Black Series” and making extra space now for more 3.75″ figures.
Are you seeing this in your area? Could this mean some of the more “in-demand” figures in the classic scale will be arriving at retail soon (or to conincide with Force Friday)? Share your thoughts in the forums!
Hasbro’s new Forces of Destiny line has been showing up at retail over the past week. How are these appearing to move in your area?
