Rumor Report: 3.75″ Galaxy Figure Multipack

We have another decoded Target DPCI to share today and it was the last one on our original list (posted here). The others were revealed here yesterday. This item is a “Star Wars Galaxy” Multipack that includes one figure from each of the serialized episodes (I-VIII). There are probably some good ol’ evergreen characters that will probably be included in here like Vader and Luke, but who do you think they chose to represent The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi? 

The DPCI is 087-06-8398, (which is now active on Brickseek) retail price is $39.99 and has an estimated October 1 release date.

Leave a comment on whom you’d like to see. And yes, they are all basic (5 POA) figures.

A Different TBS “Alien” Available on Force Friday?

As Yoda said, “Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.” but we now believe that the “alien” in wave 2 of the 6″ Black Series may in fact be someone else entirely and NOT Chewbacca as we previously theorized. Click on through to check out the latest development as we prepare for Force Friday 2 and beyond.

Clearance Season at Target

Target has finally begun the process of clearancing out product that has been desperately staring back at you for nearly the past year.  While most of these are the “lower tiered” 5POA style toys that even the kids seem to have no interest in, you will also likely find items from TBS getting marked down significantly as well.

While it’s good to get out with the old, seeing what is on clearance, and more importantly, knowing what NEVER MADE IT to retail, is a chilling sign for just how bad the brand is being merchandised these days.  We can only hope that Hasbro has a much  better game plan for the upcoming two films and beyond and turns this frown upside down.

Head on over to the forums for some close up images of the items marked down at my local store in the STL area, as well as the markdowns (which are already significant)… and for a personal rant.

Rey Not to Be Included in Monopoly Set After All

Last year during the height of the #WheresRey campaign, Hasbro addressed parent/fan/collector concerns regarding the omission of Rey as a game piece in the Monopoly The Force Awakens Set.

Today, the Chicago Tribune has posted a follow-up and “due to insufficient interest”, the game won’t be updated to include her (in the U.S.). But all is not lost as the representative for Hasbro states that the piece was in fact made and is available through Hasbro’s Customer Service department.
