Walmart’s exclusive cardboard Kessel playset is finally starting to show up at brick and mortar stores. Thanks to reader vikingrobot for the report!
Following up on my deciphering of the identities of Episode IX characters, I found a listing on Walmart for Hasbro’s new line* of Lightsaber Academy lightsabers: “LSA LVL 2 London Lightsaber“. I think this further supports my theory that “London” correlates to Rey in Lucasfilm’s mystery box surrounding the final chapter in the Skywalker saga. Look for this item and more on Force Friday (October 4, 2019).
*Officially announced at Toy Fair 2019.
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
Walmart currently has in stock quantities for the new TVC Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure.
Thanks to David H. for the heads-up.
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.
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.
Looks like Hasbro’s dipping back into the orange line 3.75″ Black Series again as a new listing has popped up on Walmart.com via Brickseek for a Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony) figure for the Vintage Collection. No word yet on exclusivity. On a related note, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 6″ version of this figure before too long.
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.
