Facebook follower Ricky Resurreccion writes in with his current store find of clearance Jakks figures:
Hi there, you may want to pass this news along. Been working some SF Bay Area Walmarts and they have the 48″ Jakks Vader and FO Stormtrooper on clearance for $21. I suggest peeps scan the barcodes even if they have their retail prices stuck on it. I had my stores ring up $21 for the 48″s. And the Jakks plain-vanilla R2-D2 are not advertised as on clearance but believe me, they are. Usually sells for $50, they are on sale for $13. At these prices, I grabbed a couple for my boys.
Nice finds Ricky!
Walmart continues to be the store of choice (at the moment) for finding new 6″ Black Series figures. @Sandman804 tags us in this tweet with a store report from Virginia.
Thanks to a tip from the local @jedidefender crew, I was able to snap up the new Kylo Ren (Unmasked) POP! figure from Walmart today for myself and a couple of friends.
Twitter follower @Z0rn send word that he found the Ezra’s Speeder Bike at Walmart this morning.
Walmarts are resetting their aisles this week and next (as evidenced by the new planograms posted in stores) so look for new product on your shelves soon.
Scott from Tulsa shares this AWESOME 6″ Black Series store find with us via Twitter. As a bonus, they rang up at $9.00 each. Great score, Scott!
This figure was leaked a couple days ago during Funko’s live Periscope video but now official “glam” shots of the Walmart Exclusive POP! Kylo Ren (Unmasked) has made its way online.
Thanks to @acrossthestars on Twitter for the heads-up.
We’ve been receiving multiple reports of the newest Hasbro 3.75″ figures from The Force Awakens hitting Walmart stores from coast to coast. Above is the latest report via a tweet from @Halo44 in Pico Rivera, CA.
Instagram follower “joblessmoth” sends word that he scored a set of the newest 6″ Black Series figures from his Walmart in North Carolina. This latest wave includes Jango Fett (Geonosis), First Order Flametrooper, Finn (FN-2187) and Han Solo.
After an extended drought, some St. Louis are Wal-Mart stores have started receiving new TBS 3.75″ figures. Good luck on those toy runs and be sure to keep us posted on your finds.
While it was a nice surprise finding Wal-Marts latest wave of 3.75″ Black Series today, the excitement quickly turned to aggravation once opening Finn… I picked up two of this figure, and both had fused right elbow joints.
The first one snapped immediately – the second one I was able to save only through my experience with customizing. Hopefully this doesn’t turn out to be a widespread issue… but please share your experiences after the jump!
It appears that with the new year, Wal-Mart has increased the price of basic TFA figures by about a dollar each. This puts them closer in line with the likes of competing retailers; and after having a hard time keeping Star Wars figures in stock around the holidays, this price hike comes as little surprise. So be prepared to pay a little more for the “budget line” moving forward.
Here we are, right in the midst of a great new Star Wars film with a huge demand for action figures related to the movie, and a ton of people haven’t seen a sniff of anything past Wave 1 from Wal-Mart’s exclusive 3.75″ Black Series figures.
Apparently this line is so exclusive, many stores are being completely left out after Wave 1 in spite of having dedicated peg space for these figures (remember, after Wave 1 is when the NEW figures from the NEW MOVIE are included).
What’s the scene like in your area? Better? Just as bad? Share your thoughts/findings/pics after the jump!
Tomorrow night, many of us will be seeing the highly anticipated new film, but what’s the retail situation looking like with only about a week before Christmas?
Our focus on this post is really around what’s on the pegs at Wal-Mart, due to their exclusive rights to the 3.75″ Black Series line that most collectors (and yes, even many KIDS) want to get their hands on… we’re seeing reports come in across the continental U.S. that even Wave 3 is showing up in some areas, but sadly, it appears that some Wal-Mart stores have declined to carry this line past the initial wave… even removing space for the figures.
What’s the scoop in your area? Share your experiences (good and bad) after the jump!
Seamus Gameus once again provides photographic proof of new product hitting retail in North America. He found the 6″ Black Series Resistance Trooper and TIE Fighter Pilot at his Toronto Walmart.
Spoiler Warning. New figures are starting to hit Walmart courtesy of this report by Star Wars Action News. A new figure was found as well: Rey (Resistance Outfit). Click the image above for a spoiler shot of her full outfit and accessories, and wave mates. You’ve been warned.
