After all the confusion of charging cards and changing dates, shipping confirmation notices have begun making their way to customers for their The Black Series [P3] 6″ Gamestop Exclusive Inferno Squadron Agent. Now we just all need to cross our fingers and hope they arrive in one piece! Have you received your confirmation yet? Let us know!
Only a couple weeks after their release, Walmart dropped the prices of The Black Series 6″ Centerpieces from $49.99 to $34.99 and The Black Series 6″ Rey and Luke Speeders from $59.99 down to $44.99. Now, it seems that Walmart are lowering the prices of the Speeders once again. JTA Reader DLane5871 shares a find at a local Walmart in Durham, NC. Both Rey and Luke Speeders were dropped to a mere $30! At this price, I would happily grab a couple more (I must admit, they make excellent display pieces). Have you see these prices near you or in another store? Let us know!
That’s right…after many, many, MANY delays and date changes they have FINALLY sent out shipping confirmations for the Gamestop Exclusive Supreme Leader Snoke Throne. Phew…what a wait that was! If you haven’t gotten one yet, I highly recommend that you do! It is currently sold out at Gamestop.com, but you might be able to start checking stores this next week. It’s an awesome piece and that has great diorama potential with Kylo Ren (Throne Room). If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out our review of Snoke and see why he’s a must have.
Target is having a huge toy sale where you can save $10 off of $50 or $25 off of $100 (their typical deal). The good thing is, unlike Force Friday II, the discount actually comes right off in the cart. No waiting for gift cards or anything like that. I took the opportunity to grab some of the vehicles and two-packs I held off on. No need for a promo code either! Automatic savings. Click the link to go right to the Star Wars items.
About a month ago, I was doing some late night googling and searching for some deals on TVC and Black Series figures. Paul might remember some of the sketchy looking sites I emailed him in the past to get his opinion on lol. But, after tons of sketchy and straight fraudulent looking sites, I had discovered a couple of gems and there is one that I feel particularly deserves some praise. So, click through to find out a little more about this toy shop and my experience.
Funko revealed two near exclusive Pop! Four packs for Costco. The first is called “First Order Four Pack” and includes Kylo Ren with Glow In the Dark Lightsaber, Supreme Leader Snoke, First Order Executioner, and BB-9E. The second is called “Rebel Four Pack” and includes Rey with Glow in the Dark Lightsaber, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca (with his Porg Pal), and BB-8. Each Pop! is individually packaged within the four-pack box. It’s hard to justify buying a four-pack of Pop! figures most collectors have just because of a slight change (says the guy with every FO Snowtrooper “Variant”), but where have we heard something crazy like that before?? If you’re a die-hard Pop! collector or you haven’t gotten these individually yet, you just might have to pick this up. They do look nice in that four-pack box, but I didn’t even know Costco still existed!
UPDATE: It’s unclear whether the free poster is the newly revealed theatrical poster, or the second teaser poster. We’ll update you when we have confirmation. It shows the new artwork in your cart, but it says they are “the last of the officially released studio posters” and they’re 13×19.
UPDATE 2: Okay FandangoFanShop.com is back up, but running REALLY slow. Good luck claiming your posters! It was quite a struggle for me! MTFBWY!
AllPosters.com typically runs some great sales, but right now they’re running a 60% off sale on nearly EVERYTHING on the site until tomorrow night. Grab some of the newest The Last Jedi Merch including Posters, Shirts, Pops, Cardboard Stands and anything you can think of! But don’t think we forgot about the OT fans. They have items that every Star Wars fan can enjoy. Take a look at some of the choice posters I picked out myself. Be sure to stop by and look at all the Star Wars merch they have to offer!
Funko unveiled their newest Deluxe Pop featuring Kylo Ren in his TIE Silencer. I personally have been loving all the deluxe Pop’s involving ships and I hope they continue to do more. JTA reader Kamran let us know that you can also pre-order it right now at Entertainment Earth with a December release. What do you think about these Deluxe Pop figures? Do you like the look of them? Let us know in the comments!
Be sure to check out JTA’s Facebook Gallery for a TON of new photos from NYCC! LOTS of new products to check out. Plus, TBS 6″ reveals will be coming soon!
That’s right, Mighty Muggs are making a return! IGN broke the news a little bit ago that Mighty Muggs will be coming back. You can see them below courtesy of IGN
Hurry, Hurry! The Black Series [Phase III] Jaina Solo 6” is up for pre-order on Amazon for $19.99! Also seems there is a limit of 2 per person. That is a good thing Amazon!
I know it’s October and we’re all getting into the spirit of the Halloween season, as was this Target shopper, but this is ridiculous! We’ve posted many theft articles as of late and I think the theft issue is bound to come to a head (I know, I’m not funny!). Something needs to be done, but what? JTA Reader MaxOfRen was pretty excited to find this new Headless Ren variant, but was disappointed that it wasn’t in mint condition due to the cutting on the bubble. Such a shame! I guess this is how you get your SA 3.75″ Episode VIII Kylo Ren if you “forgot” your wallet but remembered your box cutter.
I personally found the original Force Link Starter Set a bit lackluster and overpriced at launch (although I enjoy the technology itself), but the lower price point of anywhere from $21-24 made it more tolerable (especially with that $10 off coupon). The TRU Exclusive Force Link Starter Set was a bit more ‘exciting’ with the Executioner and Praetorian Guard, but JTA reader Matt sent in this new Force Link Starter Set he found in Hong Kong with Luke, Rey, Rose, and FO Stromtrooper Officer and I think this is the right direction. Of course, not EVERYONE wants a larger set of figures or wants to spend the extra cash, but I like the different tiers of Starter Sets (even more so if the coupon works for them all!). Will we see this in the US? Maybe. Have you encountered this set yet? Let us know!
UPDATE: Matt made a mistake, this does NOT include a Force Link. So it is not a Force Link Starter Set, but more of a Force Link Figure Set. Sorry for the confusion! This will be exclusive to Kohl’s in October here in the USA.
I had nearly forgotten about these Walmart Exclusive 40th Anniversary Funko Pop sets that we reported on previously in June, but JTA reader Justin sends us his find at his local walmart. After doing some digging, I found that these have just hit a few stores near me in NJ as well. Might be time to hit your Walmart if you’re a Pop fan! (or Ewok fan!). They are out of stock online, but here is the Ewok Set and Bespin Set in case you want to keep track!
JTA Reader Kam wrote to us to let us know that he received his Black Series 6″ figures from his “E-tailer of choice.” Now, I am not sure where exactly he ordered from, so when we find out we’ll let you know. He received Snoke Throne Room, Guards of Evil 4-pack, and the First Order Stormtrooper Deluxe. My Gamestop exclusives are on the UPS truck as we speak, so you should be seeing yours soon as well (if you haven’t already). Have you received any of these? And if so, where did you order from?
You can order the new Kylo Ren and Rey Forces of Destiny 2-pack at ToysRUs.com now. It also qualifies for free shipping. They also have the TRU Exclusive Force Link Starter Set with Praetorian Guard and First Order Executioner up for pre-order. I’m not sure if that $10 Off coupon will work for this in stores, so if you try it let us know!
UPDATE: For some reason, it’s no longer letting me add the FOD to my cart and only allowing for store pickup. When I posted it, I was able to check out so keep checking back to see if it gets fixed.
John Boyega gives us a rundown of Battlefront II and everything you can expect to see from it. Thanks to JTA Reader Emily for the heads up! Check it out!

You can now order The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Jaina Solo at Gamestop.com with a release date of December 10th. I’m not sure if that is the actual date or not because I was told November in store. We’ll keep you updated!
I have just received my shipping notifications for my Guardians of Evil 4-pack and my Snoke Throne Room Exclusives from Gamestop.com. Be sure to keep an eye out for yours as well! If you still need them, you can still order them below.
Things From Another World has some of the newest Comic Trades up for pre-order. If you’re one who prefers the trades, they are great prices for these titles including Part One of the new Darth Vader Series (a MUST read), Journey To TLJ Captain Phasma, Rogue One, Screaming Citadel, Darth Maul- Son of Dathomir (new printing), and many, many more. And if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the RDR’s Comic Reviews!
Well, we have all heard by now that JJ Abrams has taken over for Colin Trevorrow as the Director of Episode IX, but THR also found out that he basically screwed over Paramount and a 10-Million Dollar obligation in order to take on the Star Wars project. You can read more about it at TheHollywoodReporter.com. Geeze, drama has become constanty associated with Disney’s Star Wars movies! (although TLJ has been pretty smooth, knock on wood!)
We have seen reports of the new Walgreens Exclusive The Black Series Obi-Wan Kenobi [Force Spirit] 6″ showing up in stores in North Carolina and now in California. It might be time to start making those Walgreen stops. I know, I know…They’re difficult trips to make. I share the same experience many of you do with stores that get them 3 months late or never at all, but let the hunt begin! Have you found it in your area? Let us know!
A recent rumor has popped up claiming that someone was seen on set wearing the famous suit during filming. There are no images of this as of now, but according to comicbookmovie.com their source is reliable. The question is, do we NEED Darth Vader in the Han Solo movie? Yes…He was used expertly in Rogue One and some may argue he had some of the best scenes, but I personally don’t think he should be stuck in every anthology film just for the sake of using him. It may water down the impact that Vader has. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Do you think we really need to see Vader in this film? In other news, Ron Howard teases us with a possible Kessel Run. Check out more of that info here at CBR.com
The Dark Lord of the Sith finally has a Jedi Lightsaber, but he’s about to find out that it’s not that easy to corrupt a Kyber Crystal in this next entry in the Comic Research Droids Reviews. Vader had just vanquished Master Infil’a and taken his Jedi weapon, but now he must corrupt the crystal within to claim it as his own. Take a look at how Lord Vader struggles with the conflict within himself and how Anakin Skywalker fights to break through the darkness in Darth Vader- The Chosen One (Part V). Don’t forget to drop me a line with your requests for future reviews! Coming up next is the Mace Windu miniseries.
Disneystore.com has a promotion going on where you can save 20% on your order of $75 or more.

You can save a good amount by using promo code: SAVE20 and on top of that you can get free shipping on orders of $75 or more with promo code: SHIPMAGIC. It’s always great that they let you combine promo codes.
Gamestop is offering Pre-Orders on The Black Series 6″ Jaina Solo IN STORE. Not sure what the date for release is because it shows as 12/31/1979 in my Gamestop app. While I was there, I was informed that on October 11th they will be releasing a new Elite Pro Membership that will be geared towards collectibles. You will get discounts for collectibles throughout the year. I know the Pro membership is worth the $15 because of the multiple Pro Day’s they have throughout the year. Found some GREAT savings today with the BOGO 50% off on ALL collectibles. Also, they can order you items in store if they don’t have it in stock.
If you’re a Pro member at Gamestop.com, then today is your day! You can get AMAZING deals of Buy one get one 50% off on ALL collectibles!

It might be a good time to start checking your local TRU’s if you want to get your hands on this. Have you found this at your local TRU? Let us know! Special thanks to JTA reader Jason M. for the heads up and the image.
Amazon has added the product page for the new TBS 6″ Episode VIII Chewbacca. I was kinda hoping they would include a Porg! Can’t have enough Porgs! Though it really looks like they used the Episode VII image, let’s hope the actual one is different. Thanks to JTA reader TC Wood for the heads up!
