Ultimate deal finder Scott from Tulsa reports finding the 40th Anniversary Darth Vader with Display “Legacy Pack” on sale for $19.87 at his Walmart. And for those that require additional proof, here is a link to the receipt.
As many collectors feared, the experiment with having TBS 3.75″ as an exclusive line to Walmart has turned out to be a mess.
In fact, the 6″ line has also become quite a nightmare across many retailers considering the mountains of Jyn and Cassian figures that are bottlenecking later assortments from reaching big box retailers.
Even with deep discounts, Walmart can’t seem to move much of this stuff (Hey, Hasbro… the trend here is you massively overproduced hero characters – and some in obscure outfits, – please don’t do this again).
How about you? What’s the trend at your current Walmart / Target / Toys”R”us / etc? Share your thoughts here or in our forums after the jump!
UPDATE – Just after posting this, forum moderator Jodo sent me this pic as his local Walmart (Edwardsville, IL) just received two more cases of this same wave that was released a year ago… how can they get in more of these when the same figures are falling off the pegs??
If this is the scene at your local Walmart, well… No Scarif Troopers for you!
Collectors looking to acquire the POP! Deluxe Rey with Speeder without having to win a lottery or stand in line at Star Wars Celebration can rest easy. It looks like it will be a shared exclusive released through Walmart leaving only the Exclusive POP! Garindan retail partner to be revealed.
Thanks to @MayTheFunkoBWY for the heads up.
Various Walmart stores in my area, and around the country, have started slashing prices on Black Series figures (6″ – $9.84, 3.75″ $5.84) and vehicles like the U-Wing down to $19.97. Hopefully this means new product that has been backlogged for sometime will make its way to shelves for the home release of Rogue One in a couple weeks. Click on though for a few quick pics.
Hasbro has released their press images from Toy Fair 2017. Click on through to check out the 40th Anniversary Collection figures, including the exclusive R5-D4, the 6″ TBS AT-ACT Driver and 3.75″ Black Series figures.
Rumored/leaked for a while now, Hasbro has also announced that Walmart will be getting another wave of 3.75″ Black Series figures. The assortment includes repacks of Prototype Boba Fett, Tusken Raider, Ponda Baba and Sandtrooper (Orange Pauldron).
Twitter follower EpcotServo reports finding part of Wave 3 of the Rogue One basic figures (Jyn Erso – Imperial Ground Crew Disguise and Bodhi Rook) at a Walmart in Florida.
An Instagram post from user @serlent shows that the Walmart Exclusive Funko POP! 3 packs have started hitting retail. They were both found in Spring, TX.
