Our friends at JediDefender are reporting the finding of wave 3 of the Saga Legends figures at Walmart in Canada. As a reminder, this wave includes 5 POA versions of Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight), Snowtrooper, Darth Maul (Episode I) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Clone Wars Armor)
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives recently reported that Wal-Mart stores are starting to clear out their stock of SAGA Legends figures, dropping them down to $3.00 each. I’m seeing the same thing in my neck of the woods. As always, your mileage may vary.
Personal Note: This price drop is puzzling, unless Wal-Mart just feels this line is not worth their time. I can only hope that a signal is being sent to Hasbro that investing in their line with quality, variety and more intelligent case assortments is better in the long run for the health of their brands.
Wal-Mart stores are starting to receive the second wave of Mission Series 2-pks. Priced under $10, these would have been a great Christmas gift a few weeks ago… but hey, better in January than not at all, right? Your mileage may vary, but next time you’re by a Wal-Mart it may be worth checking to see if they have them.
Our friends at JediDefender have posted note that Wave 3 of the Black Series 3-3/4″ figures has started showing up at Walmart in the Pittsburgh, PA area.
For collectors in the Midwest looking to brave the elements and the holiday traffic, it looks like Wave 3 of the Black Series 3-3/4″ figures have started to hit Walmart per a report from a local collector friend, Siths Herald from JediDefender.
Walmart has listed a few of their pre-Black Friday “Jumpstart Saving Event” items today. Head on over to checkout The Complete Saga on Blu-ray for $74.96, the LEGO Advent Calendar for $29.00 and a 31″ Vader and 212th Attack Battalion Clone Trooper bundle for $40.00
Forum member darthmadonna has come across something Hasbro surely can’t be happy about – clearances already on their new 5POA Legends line! Head on over to the forums to share your thoughts on what could be an isolated incident, or very bad news for Hasbro.
One of Hasbro’s better toy offerings this Fall in my opinion isn’t even in the regular Star Wars section – it’s down by the Imaginext toys – it’s the Jedi Force Jabba’s Palace Rescue set. Priced at $16.99, ths is clearly one of Hasbro’s better values these days and is a great set. It would be nice for Hasbro to continue this format for a while and include some more creatures and cool centerpiece toys in this line for the younglings.
While your mileage may vary, I’ve seen this set at a handful of Targets – but not yet at Wal-Mart or Toys”R”us. Good luck hunting if you’d like to add this to your collection (or buy for a little one!).
Swapping figures and returning an undesired item in a different package is the same as stealing, and what’s worse is sometimes a kid ends up with something as a present that they didn’t expect.
I always shake my head in disgust when I come across a figure hanging on the pegs like the example image above – but forum member dj121 puts it rather well when he says, “That swap make absolutely NO sense at all.”
With The Black Series line having issues with their bubbles falling off the package, we might soon be seeing scumbags resort to this practice even more this Fall and also more suspicious ebay auctions like the one our friends at Jeditemplearchives recently pointed out.
So, be on the lookout not only for new figures, but figure swaps unfortunately! And share your thoughts and recent finds in our forums!
