New 6″ Black Series Hitting St. Louis

As reported last week, the latest 6″ wave of TBS figures is hitting Target stores.  In a rare stroke of good luck, I stumbled upon them in the St. Louis area as well this morning.  Share your store reports here or in the forums after the jump!

Personal Note:  The Mimban Han Solo is really one of the best looking figures I’ve seen Hasbro make in any scale – fingers crossed that it’s not too long before we see a TVC counterpart of such quality that is readily available to the market…

Yak’s Top Ten: Vehicles

Yak’s Top Ten is back yet again, with the theme switching over to Vehicles.

What vehicles do you want to see made in The Vintage Collection from?  Post your TVC wish list HERE.

You can also do the same thing for the 6″ scale line in The Black Series.  Post your 6″ TBS wish list right HERE.

Note:  Wish lists may also be posted in the comments section of this article.  You may post both a TVC and TBS list, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums.   And please indicate if you’re referring to TVC or TBS with each list.

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!

Yak’s Top Ten: Creatures

Yak’s Top Ten is back for another round, with the theme switching over to Creatures.

What creatures do you want to see made in The Vintage Collection from?  Post your TVC wish list HERE.

You can also do the same thing for the 6″ scale line in The Black Series.  Post your 6″ TBS wish list right HERE.

Note:  Wish lists may also be posted in the comments section of this article.  You may post both a TVC and TBS list, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums.   And please indicate if you’re referring to TVC or TBS with each list.

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.
