Another Store Report: TARGET Exclusive Leia Bespin Found In SoCal

Alright, here we go, folks! With EXTRA SPECIAL thanks to friend and JTA reader Logan, we’re able to provide you an exclusive look at the interior and exterior of the Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset. This thing is beyond impressive. It comes loaded with lights and sounds (video forthcoming) and has INCREDIBLE sculpting within its four walls that has completely blown us away. The detail is overwhelming and has plenty of room for a hoard of droids. This is going to be a hot item for 3.75″ collectors. Disney went above and beyond here. We should count ourselves very, very lucky! By the way, measurements are 20″ long, 9.75″ wide in the front and 9″ wide in the back.

      
      
      
      

UPDATE: The Sandcrawler’s full features include: retractable claw, opening light-up cockpit, motion activated sound, lights, sound effects, trap door, motorized elevator, light-up furnace.

And here are some awesome new loose images of the pack-in “GONK” Droid, which looks to be based off of The Vintage Collection Special Action Figure Set figure by Hasbro. We will never see the vintage Kenner blue one ever in 3.75″ scale updated?

Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler: Loose Pack-In Jawa Images!

Here are some awesome new loose images of the pack-in Jawa to the Disney Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset. The figure comes with ball-jointed shoulders, but the rest of the figure is pretty static. Still, it has a pretty decent sculpt.

BREAKING NEWS! We now have a closer look at the pack-in figures to the Sandcrawler Playset. Both figures look minimally articulated, but I wonder if that GONK Droid is the first Build A Droid figure of this particular droid type. Imagine a future Droid Factory Lars’ Homestead GONK Droid because you know Hasbro is never going to give it to us.

To my shock and surprise, I found my very first two Wampa/Luke Skywalker sets at my local Walmart in Northeast Philly. I have heard of others seeing older products arrive in their local stores too. It appears as if more stock is making its way to Walmart. Now, where are those Mimban Stormtroopers?

By popular request, we’re adding The Original Trilogy Collection Jedi High Council Scene Packs which were all Toys R Us exclusives from 2004. Hasbro saved the best set for last and it’s only because of one figure. Shaak Ti turned heads and was a significant ugrade from the one released in the basic figure line a couple of years earlier. It still holds up well today. Let’s finish up with Jedi High Council (Featuring Shaak Ti, Agen Kolar & Stass Allie) (Scene 4). It’s the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today!

Sneak Peek! The Vintage Collection Range Trooper (VC128)

We have a sneak peek of The Vintage Collection Range Trooper (VC128) for you. The figure is the best iteration of the character in any scale. In my opinion, it blows away the color scheme of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figure. And it goes without saying that it is a world away from the satisfactory 5POA Force Link 2.0 version. Hasbro nailed the likeness of the figure perfectly, and the deco is a pure pleasure. The lines are super clean and free from any sloppily applied details. The articulation is better than I expected, but the inherent nature of the figure’s design prevents it from being the most “mobile” action figure Hasbro has ever produced. The most interesting detail here is the white gun. Both the 6″ figure and the 5POA figure come with black blasters, but Hasbro corrected the error with the TVC version. We should count ourselves fortunate. The figure is hitting in the USA as we speak, and collectors can barely process this since the case assortment hasn’t even gone up for pre-order yet. But Walmart (of all places) is the retailer receiving them. Truth is stranger than fiction!
