Now with reviews of Walmart’s exclusive Wave 3 Black Series figures!
Twitter follower @studshooter tags us in this tweet showing that the newest assortment of Black Series Titanium Series helmets have started hitting Walmart. This wave includes Darth Vader with Stormtrooper helmets and First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter Pilot with Poe Dameron “Black Leader” helmets.
Twitter follower Endless_MTG tags us in this tweet showing that Walmart has started setting price tags for new 6″ Black Series figures including Darth Revan, Sabine Wren and AT-AT Driver. I wouldn’t expect to see these figures anytime soon but at least it shows that they are in Walmart’s system.
Wal-Mart stores in the St. Louis area are beginning to roll back basic figure prices on TFA merchandise… we’ve even had a report of the Spin Master Yoda for as low as $20 in Colorado.
Let us know what sort of markdowns (or lack thereof) you are finding after the jump!
While Hasbro may consider their TFA lineup a success, it’s hard to believe that most retailers are quite as pleased given the mass quantities of product collecting dust and getting marked down by ridiculous margins… many of Hasbro’s lines have been marked down significantly at places like Walmart. The same can be said for the goofy Spin Masters gimmick toys.
Personal Note: As for basic 3.75″ figures, we all know what most of us are experiencing. Empty pegs or the obvious pegwarmers hanging around. Wasted toy runs over and over. Will Hasbro get their act together for the upcoming films and actually produce better offerings in the basic figure lines instead of focusing on all the destined to be doomed gimmick lines? How much patience can retailers have with such weak product lines? What happened to the company that once took pride in the Star Wars brand? Why can’t they get product the product they make that IS in demand onto the shelves? Share your thoughts in the forums.

I’ve been receiving and reading multiple reports that Walmarts are once again getting shipments of the elusive 3.75″ Black Series figures including Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and Captain Phasma. Reports have come in from Virginia and Tennessee.

Instagram follower @cknewsstand has posted packaged shots of the 3.75″ Black Series Captain Phasma, Han Solo (Starkiller Base), and (Princess) Leia Organa. Still no official word or acknowledgement of this assortment (or exclusivity) from Hasbro.
Few people have seen the Unkar Plutt or Admiral Ackbar wave… Han Solo is nearly impossible to find… and now Hasbro’s distribution inconsistencies continue, as the Nien Nunb wave (including mask-less Kylo Ren) has show up at a Wal-Mart in the St. Louis area (thank you Scott for the report).
Who else has seen these and newer Hasbro figures at retail? Let us know how those toy runs are going after the jump!
