It appears that even Entertainment Earth couldn’t save this from hitting clearance chains as the previous Walmart Exclusive Red Resistance A-wing has started to hit Ross stores in Los Angeles for $7.99.
Thanks to KyloCollector for the heads-up.
Update: Here’s another report sent to us via Vindiana Jones in FL
These seems to be no end to the number of AT-ST’s ($9.99) and certain 6″ figures ($2.99) in the supply chain at Ross. If you have a Ross in your area, it might be worth your time checking to see if they are still receiving Hasbro product from The Black Series. Good luck and let us know about your success (or lack thereof)!
Full divisions of Snowtroopers are marching in for the ridiculously low price of $3.99 at Ross. If you’re looking to army build General Leia Organa, she’s even cheaper at $2.99.
Personal Note: In general, is supply of 6″ figures exceeding demand? With 5 Below stores drowning in figures for $5.00 each, very little retail distribution of a ton of figures from The Last Jedi, deep discounts on this line’s vehicles and deluxe type figures, are we seeing some warning signs with Hasbro’s “bread and butter” line?
Some Ross stores are getting in TBS 3.75″ figures for the ridiculously low price of $2.99 (Sandtrooper, Ponda Baba, Tusken Raider, Boba Fett – Prototype Armor). Thanks to forum member EndorJunkie for the heads up!
Personal Note: These former Walmart exclusive figures are great for army building and custom fodder; and really didn’t hit full circulation at Walmart due to some very bad previous wave assortments and terrible distribution. I know that if I see these, I won’t pass them up at this price!
Hasbro’s “Wal-Mart Exclusive” Black Series AT-ST is showing up at some Ross stores for a mere $21.99 – one heck of a price for this spectacular vehicle and driver figure.
Personal Note: Chalk this up to another miscalculation by Hasbro… while they made the legs more sturdy, and this is a fantastic toy, the standard MSRP of $59.99 is just too much for a vehicle that has seen multiple releases over the past decade; especially when the target audience is people who probably have already bought multiples of it.
However, if it came with a Jedha rebel, and perhaps a small Jedha building wall section, this would have been a smash hit – but that kind of thinking probably doesn’t even cross Hasbro’s mind.
Twitter follower @jeradchil reports finding 6′ Black Series Anakin Skywalkers for a mere $9.99 each.
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives are reporting more finds of last year’s Wal-Mart exclusive Vulture Droid and Dewback at Ross stores for $13.99 each (complete with Wal-Mart exclusive stickers!).
If you’ve been holding out on these, this is a great price for some of the better product from 2012.
The evidence of just how bad 2012 was for Hasbro continues to surface as even more of the weak offerings from Movie Heroes pile up at discount chains like TJ Maxx. If you passed on most of the vehicle repacks like so many other collectors, they are showing up at TJ Maxx and Marshalls for $16.99 and the battle packs for $11.99.
Facebook reader Adam V. also reports that Dewbacks are appearing at Ross stores for $13.99.
