Sadly, some St. Louis area Walmarts are suddenly receiving several cases of TVC Wave One. This is the wave that killed TVC at Target in 2018.
Anyone else seeing this in their area? Let us know here or in the forums.
Special thanks to Adam F for the report.
Walmart stores have been clearing out quite a bit of stale Star Wars merchandise lately, such as the above Battle on Crait battle packs…
What are the best deals you’ve found? Have you been stocking up on deals, or have you been passing because some of this stuff is just completely unusable for display or custom fodder? Let us know here or in the forums!
Yakface reader Steven P. reports finding the latest Force Link 2.0 wave at a Cincinnati area Walmart. If you’re interested in these figures, the hunt is on!
Some Ross stores are getting in TBS 3.75″ figures for the ridiculously low price of $2.99 (Sandtrooper, Ponda Baba, Tusken Raider, Boba Fett – Prototype Armor). Thanks to forum member EndorJunkie for the heads up!
Personal Note: These former Walmart exclusive figures are great for army building and custom fodder; and really didn’t hit full circulation at Walmart due to some very bad previous wave assortments and terrible distribution. I know that if I see these, I won’t pass them up at this price!
Target’s awesome $10 off and $25 off coupon is in effect through Saturday, 10/13. Text TOY10 or TOY25 to TARGET (827438) or use the Target app to take advantage of it.
If you haven’t heard yet, there’s news that the brand may be reviving itself in the United States.
Could this really be happening? Share your thoughts and what this could mean for our beloved hobby, and the toy industry in general!
Hasbro’s new Imperial Trooper 6-pk (exclusive to Target) is starting to show up at stores. If you don’t see it on the shelf you may find some success by kindly asking customer service if they can locate DPCI: 087-16-0135 and they might pull it for you from the stockroom. Good luck!
Hasbro’s AT-DT walkers have starting showing up at St. Louis area Walmarts – thanks to vikingrobot for the report!
It’s still early in the return of TVC, but it appears as though we really could start seeing a resurgance with this line now that Walmart stores are starting to get in both Wave 2 and Wave 3 of TVC this month… but keep in mind, Target shoppers might be in for a dry spell with all the Wave 1 pegwarmers they are sitting on (thanks to the bad decision to repack so many figures in the first wave).
On any note, good luck on those toy runs and hopefully the disparaging times many 3.75″ collectors have been feeling for the past few years will soon be a thing of the past.
The 6″ Black Series Dewback with Sandtrooper is starting to hit clearance prices for $45 and down to $30 in some areas. Check your local Walmarts for potential bargains.
