Hot on the official announcement of the Galaxy of Adventures series of shorts, Walmart has begun setting the first wave of Hasbro figures here in Minnesota. Click on through to check out Darth Vader, Jedi Luke, Chewbacca, and R2-D2. And if you’re looking to pick these up you can get the assortment SKU from our master list of UPCs and the DPCIs. Stores are receiving them via aisle shippers in an assortment of 32 (8 of each figure ).
Thanks to Philip G. for the images.
Walmart.com has finally added a placeholder page for the upcoming exclusive Kessel Mine Escape Playset.
Thanks to Blueharvestcollector for the heads-up.
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!
Collectors holding out for discounts on the TVC TIE Fighter may want to start checking yours stores as Instagram follower toysruskid904 sends word that it as been found for $40 at his store in Middleburg (Jacksonville, FL).
It’s been a while since we’ve reported one of these but with all of the reports of the Walmart Exclusive 6″ Black Series Mimban Stormtroopers FINALLY hitting stores en masse, I’ve noticed a variant. The version from Canada (Toys”R”US) looks to have silver accents painted on it while the Walmart versions in the U.S. feature a plain, unpainted blaster.
Entertainment Earth is now taking preorder for the MIA Walmart Exclusive Vintage Collection Rey (Island Journey) figure.
Note: Rey (Island Journey) will be part of a group of shared/fan channel exclusives and not strictly an Entertainment Earth exclusive.
Walmart has finally updated their planogram/aisle reset plans to include the much-neglected Vintage Collection. As you’ve read here and elsewhere, TVC has been relegated to wherever employees stick them as there was no official peg location for them, thus finding them in clearance sections and other unrelated areas of the store.
Thanks to Jason P. for the image.
