For those looking to complete the Retro Collection carded set, Target.com is now has the Escape From Death Star Game with Exclusive Grand Moff Tarkin available for purchase.
As a follow up to our exclusive report back in January, I managed to find a UPC and Walmart SKU for the rumor E9 Vintage Collection Medium Vehicle. No word yet on what it is but I believe it is different than the rumored TVC Luke Skywalker X-wing coming later this year.
It seems like a fitting time to bring this up considering the news from earlier. A quick side-by-side comparison of the new Retro Collection Chewbacca vs. the original Kenner mold shows that the Retro model is noticably smaller in stature than the figure it pays homage. The differences also extend to sculpting of the fur and his iconic Kenner bowcaster.
Hasbro has updated their info for the new Retro Collection assortment of figures. They now state (via press release) that Target will have these this month but online/fan channel retailers will offer them in the Fall.
Update 2: These figures are now available for purchase in-store (at those stores that have them anyway) as they have been removed from “register-locked” status.
Instagram user yodaskid reports finding the new Target Exclusive Retro Collection figures at his store in California (West-Covina-South). They are register locked for sale until 5/12.
DorksideToys is now taking preorders for TVc Wave 6.
I managed to track down carded glam shot images for the Vintage Collection Wave 7 which includes Luke Skywalker (Crait), R2-D2 (ANH), Imperial Assault Tank Commander (Rogue One) and Death Star Gunner (Rogue One). Click on through for a closer look.
