Some Hasbro merchandise for The Last Jedi has started hitting clearance at Target. 50% discounts can be found on products like the Canto Bight Speeder, Resistance A-wing, Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer, the Exclusive Return of the Jedi Action Figure Set that includes Jedi Luke, Royal Guard and Emperor Palpatine. Your mileage may vary, but swinging down the Star Wars aisle might yield some savings.
As I mentioned yesterday, I thought that the new Imperial AT-DT was underwhelming in the deco department. So I thought I’d make my first attempt at repainting a vehicle. If you follow us on Twitter and/or Instagram, you were able to follow the progress of this project over the course of a few hours. Click on through to check out the before and after and see how a little paint can go a long way in improving Hasbro’s fantastic sculpt.
Sponsor DorksideToys is now taking orders for the Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank from Rogue One. Preorder now for $79.99 – coming in August.
Entertainment Earth has opened preorders for the previously rumored Imperial AT-DT Walker from Solo: A Star Wars Story. It is packed 2 per case along side Han’s Speeder.
Thanks to our friends at JediDefender for the alert.
In doing some recon on Brickseek earlier today (while researching the those new 6″ Black Series figures from “Solo”), I also came across a new listing (also confirmed on Amazon) for a Force Link 2.0 Imperial AT-DT – a new walker that was featured in the latest trailer. Pertinent info has been added to the Master List as well as the unofficial checklist.
As we continue to assemble our upcoming checklist for the product launch on April 13 for Solo: A Star Wars Story, we’ve heard of two more vehicles coming as part of the Class B assortment. One is a repack from The Last Jedi – the A-Wing Fighter with Tallie, the other is rumored to be Han’s Landspeeder (with Han) as seen in the leaked production photos as well as the LEGO set (75209). Considering the number of repacks and non-Solo film related figures/vehicles coming out that day, the merchandising tie-ins seem to be quite low – maybe lower than Rogue One.
We have a handful of new UPCs and Target DPCIs to share today (via Brickseek) for product slated to arrive with the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story products in April. The codes relate to Hasbro’s Class A assortment of Force Link vehicles/creatures and their line of Deluxe Hero Series figures. Click on through of the list.
It looks like the Disney Store will be offering some new exclusive vehicle with figure sets from The Last Jedi. These small vehicles seem to be reminiscent of old Galoob Micro Machines/Action Fleet in a way. The vehicles and figures are plastic, not die cast. They are not available in the US as of yet but should be soon. Click on through to check out boxed and loose images for Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer and Poe’s Boosted X-wing Fighter.
Thanks to Marco A. for the heads-up.
