Luke Skywalker (Dagobah) has won Hasbro’s TESB 40th Anniversary Fanvote for the next 6″ Black Series figure offered on the Vintage style cardback.
Target has started clearancing select 6″ Black Series exclusive figures again. I found the Bespin Escape Princess Leia for $13.98 this morning and there are multiple reports from collectors finding the once high-in-demand Gamorrean Guard for 50% off.

Disney has officially announced that Galaxy’s Edge will be opening on May 31 in Disneyland and on August 29 at Walt Disney World.
The first barge orders have started to arrive to collectors. Frank L. posted a few shots on Facebook but one of note has already sparked some discussion.
