In case you missed it before, preorders have opened again for the GameStop exclusive 6″ Black Series Battlefront II Inferno Squadron TIE Fighter Pilot.

There is an interesting image floating about showing that GameStop is taking preorders for an as-of-yet unannounced 6″ Black Series Battlefront II TIE Fighter Pilot for $22.99. More as it develops….

It has just been revealed via our friends at Vinylmation World that Toys”R”Us will have an exclusive 6″ Black Series Commander Gree coming in July. Price is set at $24.99.
Twitter follower @starwarshunters picked up one of the new Luke Titanium Series Black Series figures and confirms that there is articulation in the head as well as ball-jointed shoulders. Click the image above for a closer look.
Yahoo has also revealed exclusively the rumored 6″ Black Series Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker with Floppy Hat and Rifle. Retail price is set at $59.99 and will be available this Fall.
Ahead of Star Wars Celebration, Hasbro has unveiled a new 6″ Black Series Rey with Jakku Speeder coming to the line this fall. Head over to io9 for the exclusive first look.
The official Star Wars Celebration site has posted their procedures for purchasing the exclusive 40th Anniversary Collection 6″ Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) figure for Thursday and Friday.
In short, tickets will be given out starting at 6:00am to people in special early morning queues. Only those with tickets will be able to purchase the figure on those two days. Saturday and Sunday, Hasbro’s booth is open to shopping without a ticket.

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??
