Walmart has finally given up the glut of 6″ TBS figures from The Force Awakens and Rogue One – unable to sell some of these even at $5.00 each, some stores have lowered the price to mere pennies per figure in an effort to dump inventory (three cents each, to be exact). Be on the lookout in your area, and you might find Brickseek helpful in your searches.
As many of our fellow collectors have experienced, retailers seem to be on their own schedule (feels like a store-by-store basis) on getting new product onto the pegs for Hasbro’s latest lineup of Star Wars merchandise.
So if you haven’t seen many signs of new stock yet, it might just mean the stores you are hitting just haven’t made it a priority yet. I’ve seen this slow trickle in my neck of the woods, then yesterday found a Target that had finally set aside some time and shelf space to get new items out.
So, don’t give up too early – and share your finds too (or lack thereof) after the jump!
If you went out hunting for new Star Wars product on Friday, chances are you were pretty underwhelmed by what was on the pegs (i.e. lack thereof).
Personally, I found a few things I wanted after driving around a bit, but it was pretty sad to see just how little retailers seemed to care about having new product out for the April 13 street date (I could not find one single carded figure anywhere – I struggle with calling this as a “launch” at all).
If you did score some good stuff though, we’d love to hear about it and see pics in our forums.
If your local Target store starts putting out Solo launch toys early, don’t be surprised to get a “denied” message at the register… except for one group of items that are being allowed for sale.
Walmart stores are trying to clear out product from The Last Jedi now to make way for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Basically everything is getting marked down (though your mileage may vary).
Personal Note: The 5poa figures would move better if they were somewhat customizer friendly (without split torsos)! Take note, Hasbro!
As they get closer to the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story products in a couple week, Target will be placing the 6″ Black Series assortment on sale for $9.99 each and it will run until the end of the month.
Thanks to TargetGod for the heads-up.
If you’re ever in the St. Louis area, I highly encourage you to take some time to check out SAGA Toys. I went by there again today and was in amazement of all the outstanding items available, and at some of the best prices I’ve seen.
They are located at: 7575 S Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63125 and they are open daily 9am-9pm. Be sure to tell them the crew at Yakface sent ya!
If your Walmart is still selling TBS 3.75″ figures for $4.00 and you’ve been sitting on the sidelines, you may want to make those purchases soon as some stores are already raising the price back up to the “already reduced” price of $8.84.
Have you scored some goodies for the $4.00 price? Are you still seeing the lower price in your area? Share your experiences after the jump!
Walmart stores are starting to roll back TBS 3.75″ prices again. Let us know if you’re seeing the same thing in your area.
