The next wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures has been released at Toys”R”Us in Singapore. Instagram* follower cknewsstand tagged us in this image of his store find of Rey, Poe Dameron and Finn. Look for these to be added to our toyguide soon and watch for these at Walmart in the next couple weeks.
Dan Emmons from StarWarsCollector.com has posted word of a packaging variant for the Walmart Exclusive 3.75″ Black Series Darth Vader figure. He notes that the position of the lightsaber has changed and black hang tags have been implemented as well. Head on over to check it out.

In the US, this item is exclusive to Kmart, but in Mexico, collectors will be able to score the 6″ Black Series Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) figure at Walmart.
Thanks to @Rodzam71 on Twitter for the info.
The Yakface Toyguide updates continue with the addition of the Walmart Exclusive 6″ Battlefront Imperial Shock Trooper from The Black Series.
PROS: The Shock Trooper is a solid, no-brainer offering from Hasbro. Having a cross-sell product for the game required little additional investment other than a new deco for the existing trooper and a new attractive box. The deco for the figure is well applied for the most part, but discerning collectors may want to pick and choose from the available figures at retail in order to obtain the best product sample.
CONS: It is early yet to offer any real cons on the figure itself (other than the slight leg bowing due to the packaging) but the relaying of information from the manufacturer and retailer to collectors that this was even going to be available was/is lacking. There seems to be a disconnect between all parties in knowing what is available (and when) to the consumer. With the planned marketing and product release push that Star Wars Battlefront received, you’d think that tie-in promotional product such as this would be better communicated and advertised to the public.
Head to the toyguide for our detailed image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
As a follow up to Walmart’s press release regarding the Exclusive 6″ Black Series Battlefront Shock Trooper, I was able to receive definitive confirmation that it WILL NOT be available as part of this weekend’s Epic Weekend event.
Look for official details on its US release soon.
Looks like Walmart will be offering some deep discounts on Disney Infinity 3.0 figures as their Black Friday ad has leaked online. You can pick up several/all of the Star Wars Infinity figures for only $9 each as well as the PS4 Starter Pack for $37.
After hitting several Walmart and Target stores on my travels this weekend, I managed to see a few new products hitting shelves or at least arriving in stores.
Most of us want to see the 3.75″ SA figure line continue, right? But does it really have to cost this much? Especially when nearly everything else of comparable size/articulation costs consumers way less?
Is this really Hasbro’s only option to keep a decent articulated line going? Or instead of full SA figures, why can’t they have the baseline articulation be around 10 points, and have a unified line with a MSRP around $8.99 (such as similar quality to THIS)?
Is a beyond 5POA line that’s more affordable too much to ask for? Share your thoughts in the forums.
We are less than a week out from NYCC and less than a month away until the next trailer for The Force Awakens, but in the meantime there are plenty of new products hitting retail and announcements from manufacturers. On this episode, Flyguy and I discuss new Hasbro figures hitting Walmart, a new line of Titanium collectibles, and a great new 1:6 preorder from Hot Toys. Also, we discuss new info regarding the Inquisitors from Star Wars Rebels, new Topps trading card releases and much more. All this, plus our weekly, show and tell of new acquisitions and purchases on episode #78 of The Realm Recap!
Also, if you prefer an audio-only version, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.
Walmart seems to be getting a steady stream of product refreshes lately as fellow Wolfpack team member Nabil scored huge over the weekend on the General Hux, PZ-4CO and Guavian Enforcer wave of build-a-weapon figures.
Yakreader Chad R. writes in with his early morning find.
Just wanted to let you guys know that the new Battle action Millennium Falcon is hitting Walmart.Found it At the Cullman, Alabama Walmart this morning.
Just a reminder, this is the version that includes the exclusive Chewbacca, Finn and BB-8.
Thanks for the report, Chris!
Leave it to retailers and distributors to once again reveal Hasbro’s products for them as Walmart.com has posted the first look at four new 3.75″ Black Series figures coming exclusive to their stores soon. Head on over to check out place holder pages for Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and Han Solo. Thanks to Jedi Temple Archives for the heads-up.
