A few weeks back, Jedi Temple Archives leaked an image and listing for a 6″ Black Series Deluxe Luke Skywalker with Ahch-To Island base coming exclusively to Target (DPCI and price can be found here). We now have intel regarding the (obvious) companion piece for Luke and it will be available at different retail destination later this year. Budget an extra $5 on top of Target’s deluxe figure price.
As we reported over the weekend, JCPenney is now selling select home good items featuring products from The Last Jedi in stores and they are now selling them online as well.
Thanks to @katesmking on Twitter for the alert.
As we shared earlier this month, Sphero has two new app control droids ready for launch this Force Friday. Walmart has started putting new displays on shelves featuring BB-8, a new R2-D2 as well as BB-9E. Image courtesy of Eddie T.

We are less than a week away from the official Force Friday launch of products for The Last Jedi, there is worry among collectors that the distribution problems that plagued the launch for The Force Awakens will present themselves once again.
