Black Series Wave 9 Quietly Hitting Retail

A report from the Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook Group shows that the Revan wave of Black Series figures has started popping up outside of the GameStop stores. Bijan N. found the Snowtrooper and Princess Leia figures at Shopko in Redding, CA. Since they weren’t in the system, he got them for a great deal at $7.49 each.

This wave has also turned up recently at Walmart (Frederick, MD) thanks to a report from Kenny M.

Another Black Series GameStop Report

Cory writes in with a report from my backyard tonight:

Hey guys. My name is Cory Pals and I thought I’d drop a line and let you know that I found some new 6 inch Black Series figures at the GameStop at the Mall of America tonight. I found and bought Darth Revan, Snowtrooper, Obi-wan Kenobi, and Sabine Wren. I was shocked to find them because I haven’t even seen a hint of the previous set anywhere.

Rogue One Figures Hitting Kroger

Yakface reader Andrew S. writes in with this latest Rogue One retail find:

Hey guys, just wanted to drop you a line to let you know I was able to find a batch of Rogue One 3.75 inch figures at my local Kroger in Columbus, Ohio.  I got Jyn Erso (Eadu) and K2S0, but they also had a Stormtrooper and an Imperial Ground Crew figure.  I attached a photo of the ones I purchased.
Love your site, keep up the good work!
Thanks Andrew, and great find!

TFA Clearances Getting Almost Ridiculous

While Hasbro may consider their TFA lineup a success, it’s hard to believe that most retailers are quite as pleased given the mass quantities of product collecting dust and getting marked down by ridiculous margins… many of Hasbro’s lines have been marked down significantly at places like Walmart.  The same can be said for the goofy Spin Masters gimmick toys.

Personal Note:  As for basic 3.75″ figures, we all know what most of us are experiencing.  Empty pegs or the obvious pegwarmers hanging around.  Wasted toy runs over and over.  Will Hasbro get their act together for the upcoming films and actually produce better offerings in the basic figure lines instead of focusing on all the destined to be doomed gimmick lines?  How much patience can retailers have with such weak product lines?  What happened to the company that once took pride in the Star Wars brand?  Why can’t they get product the product they make that IS in demand onto the shelves?  Share your thoughts in the forums.

Above Walmart clearance photo credit goes to darthapathy via our forums.  Expect to see many more reports of immense markdowns this summer, folks!

Nien Nunb Wave hits STL

scottfind

Few people have seen the Unkar Plutt or Admiral Ackbar wave… Han Solo is nearly impossible to find… and now Hasbro’s distribution inconsistencies continue, as the Nien Nunb wave (including mask-less Kylo Ren) has show up at a Wal-Mart in the St. Louis area (thank you Scott for the report).

Who else has seen these and newer Hasbro figures at retail?  Let us know how those toy runs are going after the jump!
