As promised, Hasbro has unveiled a few of their exclusives for Rogue Friday next week – two of which have leaked prematurely. Head on over to Yahoo to check out the 6″ Black Series Jyn Erso (Kmart), Imperial Hovertank Pilot (ToysRus), Cassian Andor Blaster Rifle (Target), Smart R2-D2 (Walmart) and the Black Series Battlefront Shadow Trooper Helmet (Amazon).
Our very own Justin “Chewie” stumbled across a product leak of his own at his local Walmart (Ballwin, MO) as a shelf of Rebel U-wing Fighters were placed early. They also scanned with no issue for $79.00.
Street date? What street date? We been getting several reports a day of Rogue One products hitting retail early. Today’s latest reports come from Pocky Bandit and Eric Saunders via Twitter. Pocky Bandit found the 6″ Black Series wave at Walmart and Eric found a few 3.75″ figures at Kroger.
RobotKingdom has updated with packaging shots for the upcoming Walmart exclusive wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures. The wave includes TVC repacks of Ahsoka, Emperor’s Royal Guard, Lando Calrissian and Admiral Ackbar.

Jedi Insider alerts collectors (by way of Robot Kingdom) that a new wave of 3.75″ Black Series is coming soon to Walmart. The wave consists of Ahsoka Tano, Admiral Ackbar, Emperor’s Royal Guard and General Lando Calrissian – all of which are repacks from The Vintage Collection.

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.
