$1.00 Star Wars Figures

If you have a Dollar Tree store in your area, if might be worth your while to swing by and see if they are getting in Rogue One figures.   Their store locator is here.

Personal Note:  At two different Dollar Tree stores in the St. Louis area today, I found remnants of the following:  Darth Vader, Rey (Jakku), Director Krennic, Chirrut, Jyn (scarf), Cassian (blue coat), Princess Leia (animated Rebels).  For $1.00 each! 

Maybe these are remnants from Toys”R”us warehouses, but they couldn’t find someone who would sell these for more than a buck each?   The Cassian and Jyn figures are already starting to pile up… so maybe this was a good call… on any note, no more 5POA, Hasbro and Disney… please.  The product is just too boring.  Modern Star Wars figures need enhanced articulation and more variety of aliens and droids in the mix.  

Mimban Stormtrooper

***UPDATE – BACK IN STOCK AS OF 7AM CST (3/21)***

If you haven’t scored any TVC Mimban Stormtroopers (or are looking to add to your existing army), Walmart.com has the TVC Mimban Stormtrooper in stock… as of this post, they are still listed as available at the standard $12.99 price.

They have free shipping on orders over $35, or you can also select to have them for pickup at your local Walmart.

Personal Note:  Don’t miss out on this great figure!  I can’t wait to have a few extras to repaint into extra gritty troops on Mimban!

Yak’s Top Ten: Multipacks

Yak’s Top Ten returns, with the theme moving onto MULTIPACKS!

To help keep this theme as simple as possible, I’d suggest going with multi-pack THEMES rather than trying to call out individual figures.   So for example:  Saw Gerrera’s Partisans 3-pk, Kessel Droids 3-pk, etc.

What multipacks 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.

The Villainous Darth Vader Lunch Box and More @ Target

While at Target yesterday, I noticed some new Star Wars nostalgia items for $11.99.   If you’re into these type of collectibles, look for endcaps in the Target toy section for these.

Personal Note:  While I didn’t pick these up and normally don’t buy oddball items such as these, I am already thinking I made a mistake by passing on them.  That lunch box is especially cool.
