A few days ago, I scored the new 6″ Bespin Han at Gamestop (only 6″ Star Wars figure they had). So, if you don’t feel like trying to track this down at a big box retailer or online, you might want to swing by your local Gamestop if you have time and try your luck!
Personal Note: This is my favorite Han so far in this scale. Truly awesome. Pick this one up you see it, I think you’ll be a fan even if you don’t collect this scale.
These don’t appear to be a widespread markdown, but I came across some surprising prices on new TBS stuff at a St. Louis area Walmart today… seems to be yet another sign of trouble with the brand right now. Anyone else finding similar prices at their area Walmarts? Let us know!
While out and about today, I swung by my local Gordmans store (thanks to a tip from St. Louis area collector Darth Stringfield) – and saw a huge amount of AT-ACT’s for $70.00 each (and a handful of basic Rogue One figures for $2.99 each).
Personal Note: Even if you didn’t care for the way Hasbro engineered this walker, for this price, I don’t feel you can go wrong. Even if one gets it just for a shelf display, it’s still really cool. You can also check to see if you have a Gordmans within reasonable driving distance from you on their store locator.
Yakface forum moderator Jodo spotted Uncle Milton’s new line of Xcacations at retail over the weekend (Walmart – Edwardsville, IL area) – this new line hasn’t received much publicity, but they look kind of fun, especially the upcoming Rancor and Tauntan sets.

Target stores are continuing to lower the prices on select items in The Last Jedi packaging style, including the Return of the Jedi Battle Pack set, for as low as $7.48. As always, your mileage may vary.
Twitter follower Souther Pickin (@75Denny) reports finding part of wave 18 of the 6” Black Series assortment st Walmart in South Carolina.
The hunt begins!
It’s pretty easy to want to skip Walmart on toy runs these days for a lot of us given how badly they have handled anything Star Wars related the past few years, but they are currently stocking the Moloch wave in some parts of the US.
So if you’re looking for figures from the second assortment of Solo, it might be worth your while to make a stop to check out what they have on the pegs.
Some Hasbro merchandise for The Last Jedi has started hitting clearance at Target. 50% discounts can be found on products like the Canto Bight Speeder, Resistance A-wing, Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer, the Exclusive Return of the Jedi Action Figure Set that includes Jedi Luke, Royal Guard and Emperor Palpatine. Your mileage may vary, but swinging down the Star Wars aisle might yield some savings.
My oh my, what an uninspiring time the retail scene is these days for Star Wars…
5POA for the Solo line is front loaded with non-Solo movie figures, 6″ TBS is a rare store find at all, and TVC has kicked off with carry forwards that Walmart is pushing to the clearance section (hopefully this stops with Wave 2 and we see true peg space dedicated to them).
The only place worth even stopping to check out the Star Wars section at all in my neck of the woods is Target, who at least seems to be trying (but even there, the scene is pretty sad) . How goes it in your area?
Meanwhile, in Mattel’s Jurassic World section…
If you have any Target stores in your area, you may want to swing by and see if your local establishment is receiving some new aisle displays that contain more TVC figures, and even the somewhat elusive Wampa w/ Luke Skywalker. Good luck and happy hunting!
