Walmart Exclusive TBS Line Pricing Drama Ends? Can BAW Be Fixed?

Posted by Paul | April 26, 2016 at 08:29 AM EST |

While this "story" is undocumented and only second hand knowledge, the fact remains that things were changed at Walmart.com for the exclusive The Black Series 3.75" line and how they are now priced. We have learned through a few friends of the site that someone who worked for Disney contacted the appropriate parties at Walmart to make the ever changing pricing of the figures cease. If you look now, the fluctuating prices have indeed stopped. But now it appears that the same things needs to be done for the Build A Weapon line. We hope that the same can be done for the other lines as well. Maybe it can't since the rest of the line isn't exclusive to Walmart.

You Ship Some, You Cancel Some

Posted by Paul | April 26, 2016 at 08:19 AM EST |

Speaking to animation director Rob Coleman, Lucas said of “his ultimate framing device” that: “The entire story of Star Wars is actually being recounted to the keeper of the Journal of the Whills—remember that?—a hundred years after the events of Return of the Jedi by none other than R2-D2.” (more....) Extra special thanks to JTA stalker Ayem Mayhem for alerting us to this very interesting article!

Hasbro, during the years of 2008 through 2010, gave us some of the GREATEST collector-focused exclusives we had ever seen to date via The Legacy Collection and Legacy Collection line looks. (Little did we know then that the later half of 2010 through 2012 would be even better!) Today, these hot items go for a great deal of money on the aftermarket. If you're lucky enough, you can find them for great deals. Check out what these awesome pieces are going for today on eBay.
