For the curious, I can confirm EE is still getting the Vintage Star Wars Skiff, and it should be July/August depending on when you pre-ordered at this point. Subject to change, of course, but I just verified they are indeed still scheduled for summer.

Click on through as we transcribe some of the reveals (and confirmations) from Hasbro’s presentation at Star Wars Celebration.
We’re heading to Star Wars Celebration this weekend and for those that can track me down, I’ll be giving away a few goodies. There will be two new SWCC fan badges and like Yak Face himself, they’ll be tough to acquire, especially the chase variant. You can only obtain this version via following us on Twitter and watching for our tweet revealing its location. Each badge will also include our 2019 SWCC Yak Face Collector Coin button. Remember, we’ll also be doing a Collecting Track meet-and-greet on Sunday, April 14 at 4:30pm (Room W476) where you can get our SWCC exclusive patch wedge.
I hope to see some of you there!
Twitter follower Jacob M reports that his GameStop (TX) received the 6″ General Grievous and Imperial Jumptrooper, the latter being his preorder.
Twitter follower Bossk’s Bounty has posted a YouTube review of the upcoming Walmart Exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set from Hasbro. It looks fantastic overall and looks to be a great value for the price point. The review also confirms the VC numbers for Han Solo (Carbonite) and Ree-Yees as VC136 and VC137 respectively.

Eggmanstudios on Twitter shares with us a few new images of the upcoming Target Exclusive #VC143 Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figure.
Here is an update to a tweet I sent out a couple weeks ago regarding the continuation of Hasbro’s Mighty Muggs line. Hasbro has released official images for 4 new characters that include BB-8, Porg, First Order Stormtrooper and Supreme Leader Snoke. The corresponding UPCs and SKUs are in our Master List for reference. Click on through for a closer look.
We’ve read and received several reports that the long-delayed Walmart Exclusive 3.75” TVC Mimban Stormtrooper has finally started to hit stores. The image above was from a store in Atlanta, GA. via darthdj666.
Update: if you’re looking to use Brickseek as a method of tracking these down, be sure to use the regular assortment code for the Vintage Collection (239252624) as the Mimban Stormtrooper quantities are tied to that number rather than its unique product SKU.
.@Hasbro Not a good start to #HasbroPulse Very poor packaging, damaged items, and on top of it the wrong items shipped. Should have been 3 Yak, 2 Boushh, 1 Scarif, 1 Klaatu. Got 4 Scarif, 3 Klaatu. pic.twitter.com/q6iVkgghJz

Looks like Hasbro Pulse’s first orders are arriving to collectors with mixed results. Twitter follower ScoobyDew79 received his order with damaged contents and wrong items shipped. Hopefully others have a better experience, leave a comment with yours.
I found and shared this comical graphic and link via Facebook and Twitter from sponsor Entertainment Earth on Friday last week. At the time, the case of the 12 6″ Black Series Rose Tico figures was listed as $239.88 but I suspected a pending promotion for Valentine’s Day next week and sure enough, it’s now a mere $19.99.
