If you have a Five Below store in your area, if may be worth your time to swing by and check out their toy section as many stores have been receiviving TFA figures that rarely made their way to big box retailers.
Personal Note: Even if you despise 5POA, some of these figures have good accessories and heads that work out great for customs.
Most of us want new 3.75″ figures with more than 5 points of articulation, so recently Hasbro responded with something nobody was asking for in this scale instead.
Reaction from readers has been pretty negative since their 3.75″ Die Cast Metal Figures were announced – and now, these future clearance items have been found at retail. Our friends at Jeditemplearchives have the details. Check out their report after the jump!
Target stores are running some good deals this week, including $9.89 price on TBS 6″ figures. The kicker though is that the only figures that rang up for this price at my local store were Jyn, Cassian and the Death Trooper. The tags indicate it’s all figures, so if you try and purchase others, they will likely ring up for $19.99 and you will need to explain the situation to the cashier.
Jedha Revolt sets are also $19.99 – which is a steal. And on top of that, you can text STAR10 to save $10 off a $50 Star Wars purchase, and STAR25 to save $25 off a $100 Star Wars purchase (excluding LEGO of course).
The only tough news here is on the new display shippers, they have limited Baze and Chirrut to 1x each in the shipper… which is typical of Hasbro’s poor distribution model. And the 3.75″ stuff… all stuff that was released last Fall… which is absolutely ridiculous. Where’s Raddus??

Just in time for the stock refresh, Target will be offering a 20% off sale on all Star Wars toys (excluding LEGO of course). Sale starts 3/26 and runs through 4/15.
Thanks again to TargetGod for the details.
Update: apparently the sign used for this promo is a bit unclear regarding what is actually for sale. The sign doesn’t say “all”, nor does it say “select”. And to throw one more caveat into the deal is that it is regional and not at all stores.
A tweet from follower @SuperAwesomeGeekShow has reported that the illusive Revan wave of 6″ Black Series figures have been found in the Seattle area at Target.
Various Walmart stores in my area, and around the country, have started slashing prices on Black Series figures (6″ – $9.84, 3.75″ $5.84) and vehicles like the U-Wing down to $19.97. Hopefully this means new product that has been backlogged for sometime will make its way to shelves for the home release of Rogue One in a couple weeks. Click on though for a few quick pics.

Yakface reader, and brother-in-law, AdamBomb sends in a store finds from the Pacific Northwest. Target (North Gate) has stocked with Wave 3 of the Rogue One/Star Wars Rebels assortment of basic 3.75″ figures. Thrawn’s gone, but the rest should still be there as of this post.
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.
Just in time for Christmas, more and more reports are coming that stores are receiving shipments of the Rogue One Rapid Fire Imperial AT-ACT. I found a few at my local Target this morning (Plymouth, MN). If you are on the hunt for one of these, you can use DPCI: 087-06-5475 to check availability in your area.
Twitter follower @YeahWeddle sends is this report from his Walmart in Portland, OR. As you can see there MASSIVE stock of the newest wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures.
Per our recent report that these were coming, Target is now starting to put out new pallet displays that contain a mix of TFA and Rogue One product. Be on the look out for these in the coming days if you haven’t seen them already.
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.
Toys”R”us is running a Buy 1, Get 1 40% off sale through October 8 on all 3.75″ action figures and vehicles. This is a good time to stock up on army builders and some custom fodder this price… and even take the plunge on some vehicles, if you can get over the NERF features.
Now that the dust has begun to settle a bit, we’re curious how everyone’s toy runs for new Star Wars merchandise has gone since Rogue Friday.
