TFA Finds at Five Below

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.  

TBS 3.75″ Die-Cast Metal Figures Hit Retail

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!

Stay on Target…

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??

Update: Upcoming Target Sale – 20% Off Star Wars Toys

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.

6″ Black Series Darth Revan Hitting Target

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.

Walmart Clearances Underway for Stock Refresh

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.

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.
