Now with reviews of Walmart’s exclusive Wave 3 Black Series figures!
Highly detailed, highly articulated Star Wars 3.75-inch figures are the mainstay of many fans’ collections. The news that The Force Awakens would only see a handful of these Black Series figures, and that they would be Walmart exclusives, made fans worry if these new toys would be obtainable. The third wave, with versions of Han Solo, General Leia, and Captain Phasma from The Force Awakens, has been elusive and fetched north of $40 per figure on eBay. But now, finally, the dam has broken and these figures are showing up coast to coast–including in the Star Wars Action News studio! On this week’s show hear a review of these latest figures and see if they’re worth more toy runs!
Yet while the Black Series 3.75-inch figures have been elusive, the main line of figures, with five points of articulation, are available at every store. Fans were divided on these detailed, but hard-to-pose figures. Now, enter Kozy–a figure customizer who has created cardbacks that elevate these figures from average to epic! He joins the Star Wars Action News hosts to talk about these cards and his inspiration for making them.
With a look at upcoming exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con International and Celebration Europe, new online sales, and much more, it’s all in this Wampa-sized episode of Star Wars Action News

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.
