There are more store reports coming in of new Solo: A Star Wars Story related product coming in (we’ll only be showing Hasbro confirmed and officially announced products) despite a clearly marked street date on the boxes. Special thanks to JTA reader PJ for this report! Also, it looks like Wookiee Weekend is coming April 13th.
Wow! The Grand Moff Tarkin wave of 6″ TBS6 figures (including NEW Solo figures) has been found at retail already. JTA reader K. Andrews lucked out greaty today! Click through for his story!
British etailer In Demand Toys has TVC Wave 1 up for preorder! You can pre-order a set of 6 figures for £79.99.
Check out their website here!
British website Toyworld reports that toy sales for the Amazon stores in Europe’s most important toy markets UK, Germany and France are very strong. In market share terms toys is actually one of the few product groups in which Amazon in Europe has a better performance than in the US. Meanwhile Toys R Us UK is close to filing for insolvency. (more….)
We are continuing to get great store reports on these fantastic Walmart markdowns. JTA reader John M. has found 3.75″ figures for $4.00. And yet some readers STILL haven’t seen these arrive at their local stores yet!
There is a general retail purge happening as stores prepare to welcome Solo: A Star Wars Story products, but some stores are having more aggressive sales than others. JTA reader Agustin sends us proof of what’s going down at his local Walmart.
Wow! A store report of the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Emperor Palpatine basic figure has been made in Rebelscum’s forums. There are also other NJ Walmart sightings of this figure too. This confirms our rumor report that this figure would likely make its way out to retail in some capacity. Interesting, huh? Special thanks to JTA reader Rich K. for the news and alert! You can see Emperor Palpatine and the rest of his wave in our exclusive look in our RDRs right now!. If C’ai Threnalli and First Order Flametrooper start showing up I think Entertainment Earth has some reason to be upset!
Wow! We are continuing to get many reports on people successfully finding wave 15 of The Black Series [Phase III] line at their TARGET stores. Most reports are coming in from California right now. As you know, we’ve just reviewed this entire fantastic wave in our RDRs. Check them out HERE. Special thanks to Eric T. for this latest report!
The latest wave of The Black Series 6″ figures have made their way to a Target in San Luis Obispo, CA, but they rang up at a RIDICULOUS price. Each of the figures rang up for only $2.96! That’s a pretty insane price and it’s another example of the issues plaguing Target’s inventory system. Have you found these in the wild yet? And if so, have you seen these crazy prices at your local target?
We’re not sure yet if these are going to be popular enough to survive, but if anyone is interested in the new Mighty Muggs with the swappable faces, they’ve been spotted at a Walmart in Northern Illinois. Thanks to JTA reader Derek for the alert.
JTA reader PB Davis sends us a store report noting how much Force Link products are in his areas on clearance. He found items as low as $2, and the “beast” sets for $5. It’s a shame that Star Wars films don’t get to fully bake at retail anymore. It’s always on to the next new thing. On a related note, I have noticed that TARGET is beginning to prep its clearance of this line as well.
If you still need this, or just want a few more, the Walmart exclusive 3.75″ Black Series AT-ST is on sale for a mere $15 if you pick up in store. Again, you’ll have to have them in surrounding stores to get this deal, but you can order it online and pick it up. But be sure to hurry, they’re going fast! My 3 Walmarts had approximately 50 split between them about 2 weeks ago and now they’re picked clean (I swear I didn’t buy ALL of them!).
JTA reader Paco LAG has found the latest wave of Star Wars [The Last Jedi] figures (the Threnalli wave) at his local MAXI store in Canada. Remember, the only way USA residents can get this wave is directly from Entertainment Earth, or one of their wholesale clients.
For those of you out there interested, ThinkGeek stores are now taking pre-orders for the Rey (Island Journey) wave of The Black Series [Phase III] figures. Special thanks to JTA reader Chewza for the news!
JTA reader Matthew Z. has found a Luke Skywalker & Rancor, and Sandtrooper & Dewback Galactic Heroes sets at his local TARGET in Louisville KY. I cannot remember if these are new or old, but the real story here is that they just arrived at his location!
Found! The Black Series [Phase III] wave 15 figures have been found at Toys R Us in Ft. Wayne Indiana! We exclusively revealed what figures would make up part of this case assortment last year. Sadly, as expected, the First Order Stormtrooper is exactly the same as the 2015 figure. (Hasbro, you really couldn’t update the helmet?) And even worse, Captain Phasma has not been given her staff and still has the same bulky body. Oh well. Special thanks to JTA reader Ian D. for the alert!
Never saw The Black Series [Phase III] Ahsoka Tano/Luke Skywalker wave at your local retailer? Yeah, never did we. But huge pallets of this case assortment are arriving at Meijer stores and the figures are discounted to $9.99 each. What is going on anymore? This image comes from social media on behalf of friend Steve U.
If you still need an AT-ACT or The Black Series AT-ST 3.75″ Walmart Exclusive, keep trying your luck at your local Ross stores. JTA reader MPrice shares with us his find at his local Ross in Alabama where he said they had a ton of AT-ACT’s at $29.99 and AT-ST’s at $21. Have you had any luck at your Ross? I know mine didn’t have any of those, but its possible they didn’t show up yet. Let us know if you found anything good at yours.
In what seems to be a last-ditch effort push to get stock out to Walmart before they supposedly go “mainstream” (unless that has changed now), older The Black Series [Phase III] super-articulated Walmart exclusive 3.75″ figures are arriving at multiple Walmart stores across the nation. Some are even arriving in kicker displays. Special thanks to rivesjunctionite for the image and report! I also know of reports in Texas, Philadelphia and South Carolina.
Wow! ROSS discount chain stores are finally blowing out their current Star Wars stock! We have received multiple reports on these markdowns. The AT-ACT is $29.99. The Walmart AT-ST is $21.99. And the super successful TBS6 [P3] FO Special Forces TIE Fighter is $24.99. Get there before they’re gone! Special thanks to friends Josh and Frank for the images and alerts!
Found! The latest wave of The Black Series [Phase III] figures has been found in Canada! JTA reader Argyris A. sends us some quick pics to share with the rest of our readers. The “photo realistic” technology came out better than expected. We thank him for sending these pictures along!
Wo, mama! Walmart is getting HUGE kicker displays full of The Black Series 3.75″ products. This arrival is probably an effort to dump as much as Hasbro can in Walmart’s lap before the line goes mainstream next year (per our exclusive JTA rumor report we posted this summer). These large displays are currently being found all over the country. JTA readers Steve U. and flying2highagain send us news and images. Click through for more.
Here’s something interesting. Big Lots is getting in a new smaller scale of vehicles that retail for $15 that are based on vehicles from The Last Jedi. These are produced by Hasbro. JTA reader Bryan L. sends us an image of what he found.
File under: “Too Much Too Late”? JTA reader and friend Nick B. sends us an image of a Walmart kicker display that features a whole bunch of stuff most of us already have. Will there be enough gift-givers in the buying public to pick these displays clean? We certainly hope so. Click the image to see the new display arriving at stores.
You can take advantage of Toys R Us’ Buy One Get One 40% ff sale. It will save you some money. JTA reader Agustin from Miami FL got the TRU exclusive Force LInk sets for $21 a piece.
Wow! Last night JTA reader Bryan L. sent us news that retailer 99 Cents has the Battle Action Millennium Falcon for only $19.99. This report comes from southern California. Does something like this once again fall into the “penny wise/pound foolish” pot when it comes to Hasbro? Did dumbing this classic vehicle down really pay off?
After a sad turn of events with retailer giant Toys R Us in the USA, it has just been announced that they will be closing one quarter of their retail locations in the United Kingdom. Our friends at Fantha Tracks have the full story.
For our UK readers, ToysRUs.co.uk is running a great promotion: Half price on all Star Wars toys (some exclusions apply). Special thanks to JTA reader Chris M. for the alert!
