A mysterious listing for C-3PO has surfaced in Target’s system. We do know that this figure is tied directly to the current Vintage Collection assortment’s DPCI (087-16-2097) so it also makes it a general release item, and not an exclusive. There are currently no details regarding newness or what film it may be sourced.
Our latest Customizing Challenge is in full swing now, and the theme is Wanted Individuals(criminals, Jedi outcasts, figures you want Hasbro to make, etc.).
Head on over to the forums to check out the submissions thus far – and as always, we’d be honored if you would join us with your own customs entries. Please remember though, only new customs for this theme should be entered.
Hasbro’s older stock of merchandise that never made it out to intended retailers continues to show up at discount stores. Forum member vikingrobot reports that Force Link 2.0 figures his local Five Below store for just $3.00 each (plus more of the Rogue One packaged deluxe vehicles and 2-pks for $5.00 a pop).
If you pre-ordered the latest TVC offerings via Amazon, you might be receiving them this week, so keep an eye on your inboxes for shipping notices.
Personal Note: Hopefully it won’t be long before these begin showing up at retail too! The more of a visual presence Star Wars action figures of all scales have in stores and in front of consumers, the better. Kids aren’t going to ask their parents for toys that they don’t ever see… the hobby always does better when it appeals to a broader audience than just adult collectors who have to resort to ordering online.
Burlington Coat Factory stores are expanding their toy selection as they gear up for the holiday shopping season, and you may come across the Solo Falcon for the low price of $22.99, and Solo Tie Fighter for $9.99. Thanks to forum member Spooky for the heads up!
In addition, vikingrobot reports that Five Below stores are starting to get in deluxe vehicles (Rogue One packaging) for the low price of $5.00.

I’ve fallen behind schedule on the next Rykrof Enloe photonovel chapter, so figured I’d post some new 3.75″ customs for the time being. These are still in the WIP stage, as I’m not sure I’m happy with them. But if you’d like, you can check them out in the forums here.
