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.
A new Yakfinities Customizing Challenge will commence in April.
Right now, registered Yakface forum members can vote on the theme. The categories are: Entertainers, Desert Dwellers, First Order Forces, Kit Bash Vehicles, Imperial Scavengers and Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy.

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)!
Walmart stores are starting to rollback prices on both TVC and TBS figures – hopefully this means they are trying to make room for newer product. Perhaps we might even see further reductions over the next month or two if this first round of rollbacks doesn’t help clear some significant peg space.
Yak’s Top Ten returns, with the theme moving onto MULTIPACKS!
To help keep this theme as simple as possible, I’d suggest going with multi-pack THEMES rather than trying to call out individual figures. So for example: Saw Gerrera’s Partisans 3-pk, Kessel Droids 3-pk, etc.
What multipacks do you want to see made in The Vintage Collection from? Post your TVC wish list HERE.
You can also do the same thing for the 6″ scale line in The Black Series. Post your 6″ TBS wish list right HERE.
Note: Wish lists may also be posted in the comments section of this article. You may post both a TVC and TBS list, but please do not post your wish lists in this comments section AND in the forums. And please indicate if you’re referring to TVC or TBS with each list.
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.
Now that some of us are starting to receive mighty Jabba’s Sail Barge, we’re curious what your first impressions are once having it in person! Are you blown away, or are you finding aspects you feel Hasbro should have done better on?
Forum member Lance Quazar has posted some nice pics and shared some observations for your viewing pleasure here. Check out the images, and share your own thoughts here or in the forums.
Personal Note: I’m reading from various buyers that the Ithorian corpse is not removable… that’s kind of a letdown. But overall most of what I’m reading is extremely positive, outside of some not-so-great experiences with boxes arriving damaged. I can’t wait to finally receive mine and get it all set up and hope we see several more offerings on par with this in the Star Wars 3.75″ line.
