Walmart’s exclusive cardboard Kessel playset is finally starting to show up at brick and mortar stores. Thanks to reader vikingrobot for the report!
If you have a Tuesday Morning store in your area, you might want to swing by as they have been getting in The Last Jedi Force Link figures recently and selling them for the low price of $1.99. They seem to still be getting in more 3.75″ TBS ($3.99) and 6″ TBS ($6.99) figures. Their store locator is here.
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.
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)!
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.
Those one or two TVC TIE Fighters you’ve been seeing on the shelf at your local Walmart may be turning into an entire fleet soon, as St. Louis area Walmarts have been suddenly receiving mass quantities of this ship. Let us know if you’re seeing the same thing.
Personal Note: $79 is just too high of a price for this ship… would be surprised if these aren’t on rollback / clearance before too long.
If you have a Best Buy in your area, if may be worth your time to swing by and check out their toy/collector section. Quite a few various Star Wars items have been marked down (as well as other brands, such as Marvel). Good luck and as always your mileage may vary.
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…
