More Hasbro Product at Discount Chains

If you’re looking to add more figures to your collection at low prices, Tuesday Morning stores are receiving 2-pks from The Last Jedi and Solo:  A Star Wars Story and marking them for $4.99-$5.99 each.   A variety of Funko Pop! items can be found too for around the same price (several themes, not just Star Wars).

As always, good luck and happy toy hunting.

Ross Finds Continue

Ross stores continue to receive a variety of random Hasbro Star Wars item; seemingly on a weekly basis.  If you have a Ross in your area, share with us what you’re finding here in the comments or in our forums.

Personal Note:  The red A-Wing from TLJ continues to elude me at Ross, but I did pick one up via eBay for a fair price.  I must say, that thing is awesome

Photo-Real – 3.75″ Scale Game Changer?

We are starting to really see the benefit that photo-real technology has on bringing realism to some classic characters,  such as Luke Skywalker.  The facial features on these figures compared to older counterparts is stunning.

And as we know, Hasbro has dug into the same well over and over many times through the years… and as long as the figures have been improvements over previous versions, many of us have  happily purchased the product (nearly the same product as before).

Here we are in 2019… many of us have been invested in the modern hobby for 20+ years…  so, how many characters do you want to see Hasbro visit again with photo-real?  Are you willing to jump back into the prequels again with a Chancellor Palpatine, Padme, etc?  Or just OT classics like Luke and Han Solo?  Or not at all?

Share your thoughts after the jump!

Personal Note:  I’m in it for the long haul.  I’ll purchase nearly any 3.75″ product that is an upgrade over the older version… especially for the OT era.  And I guess sequel era too, I just don’t have room for much prequel stuff anymore.   Older versions of figures go into my custom fodder supplies.
