6″ Mimban Stormtroopers Still Arriving

There have been reports of Walmart stores receiving more shipments of the 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper recently, and this morning I saw the same thing.

If you’re looking to add to your ranks, it might worth your time to stop by your local Walmart to see if they have received new shipments (or are receiving for the first time).  Happy hunting!

Hasbro’s Bucket Droid

While Hasbro’s performance over the past year(s) has been pretty disappointing for most 3.75″ fans, I must say they surprised me with the attention they gave the new R1-J5 droid in the Resistance toy line.

I highly recommend picking up this figure if you see it, even if you are passing on the rest of the line.  This is a cool toy and reminds me of the product they were pushing a decade ago – check out more pics of this droid (including his removable part features) in the forums.

Walmart Clearances

If you’ve been at your local Walmart lately, you may have noticed that the toy aisles are resetting, clearing out the old, and making room for the new.

Among the clearance items you will likely find are products from Solo:  A Star Wars Story, and you might want to scan them because the marked clearance price may not reflect the full markdown.

Hyper-Articulated Hips

As an adult 3.75″ collector since 1995, I’ve seen Hasbro approach figure articulation and aesthetics in many forms… and here were are almost 25 years later, and it seems in some ways, Hasbro has taken a step back with aesthetics (at least compared to figures from 10 years ago).

What I mean is articulation is needed – I love when figures have a wide range of ball joints – but there are some times when it feels as though Hasbro goes  overboard, especially with how they are engineering the hips on figures now.   In some cases, it’s fine – but it doesn’t seem like Hasbro is in the “Goldilocks Zone” anymore when it comes to articulation… it’s either too little (5poa style) , or too much.

Thoughts?  Do you like the way these figures are designed these days, or to do prefer the style from about 10 years ago?  Share your opinions here or in the forums!
