Awesome Plush Toy Sets Arrive At Walmart

I don’t know how long these new items have been out, but JTA reader and friend Russ T. sends us images of two cool new plush sets that arrived at his local Walmart a couple of days ago. I will kill for that cantina set.

We all know that Toys R Us in the USA is liquidating their inventory, but JTA reader Jason A. sends us a disconcerting image. His local store received a literal palet of Legacy Packs from The Black Series [Star Wars 40] line. How many of these bleeping things did they make? Can we expect more stuff like this to show up? Will the solid cases of Darth Revan finally arrive? Right now these sets are marked down to $23.99, but many other retailers have already cleared these out for $10 or less per pack. Is this a testament to how small our community is, or is it more of a testament to how lousy distribution is?

Sainsbury’s (a supermarket chain in the UK) have Star Wars [The Last Jedi] 3.75″ figures for sale. What’s interesting at this particular location, however, is that the male characters are on the shelf with a full £11 price tag. But the female characters are ‘reduced to clear’ at £7.33! Someone needs to do something about this. The female characters of Star Wars deserve the same higher MSRP as their male counterparts. Special thanks to JTA reader Shoretrooper for this disconcerting turn of events.

Found! TARGET Exclusive TBS6 Chewbacca Arrives At NJ TARGET

JTA reader and friend Russ T. has found the TARGET exclusive Chewbacca figure at his local TARGET in NJ. He also asked about the new 4-LOM figure. This was his experience with that: “My local Target had 6 of the new Solo Chewie figure, but no 4-Lom. When I asked the worker to look up the figure after I gave her the DCPI she said it comes up on clearance for $12.99 and they won’t be getting anymore. WHAAAAAT??? They never even had it yet”

UPDATE: JTA reader Colin A. sends us info that the DPCI is 087-06-9531

Brand New TBS6 Figures For $5, $7 And $9 Hanging From Pegs!

All of these store reports we’re receiving are disconcerting. JTA reader cress has purchased all of the latest The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures he wanted for $5.00 each. We also have seen reports of $7 and $9 figures too. After the buyers realize that they made NO MONEY on these figures, Walmart will be the next retailer not to want to take a chance on the Hasbro Star Wars brand. These assortment numbers need to change more frequently so they can discontinue old stock in a more organized fashion. This insanity happens all of the time now.

IT IS TRUE! ALL OF IT! Here is ANOTHER unbelievable find (that I am UNABLE to confirm)! In all my life collecting, I have NEVER seen action figures on clearance go this low. I have seen $.100, but never $.03. Commenters are claiming that Brickseek has older The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures listed for this price, but I am unable to confirm anything similar myself. There are also comments that it affects the new Death Star Commander too. Special thanks to friend Derek T. for alerting me to this image from The Black Series 6″ Collectors Facebook page!

UPDATE! We have a photo of JTA reader Brett P. scanning the 6″ figures at his local local Walmart. $0.03 EACH! INSANITY! Click through for the proof!

BB-8 Mega Playset Found For As Low As $30 At Walmart Stores

Unbelievable! Reports are pouring in from toy runners that the BB-8 Mega Playset has been marked down as low as $30 at some Walmart stores. We are getting plenty of reports that it is also found for $45. Special thansk to JTA readers Allen P. and vikingrobot and others for the reports and images. This item is still over $100 on Walmart.com. What ashame. This is a fantastic playset. It should have performed better. Perhaps get rid of the droid-shaped gimmick next time.

Because that’s where you’ll probably find them! Here is another reason why Walmart should lose the right to sell Star Wars action figures. Per JTA reader Ryan C., this particular Walmart still has boxed 3.75″ The Black Series [Phase III] figures in the aisle, but brand new The Vintage Collection figures in the clearance aisle. Maybe this Walmart employee looked at the first wave of TVC and exclaimed: “Not again!”

What’s sadder than sad? I am glad you asked because I have an answer. Sadder than sad is finding more Solo: A Star Wars Story stuff at my closing Toys R Us store (on clearance) than any other TARGET or Walmart in my area. That’s what’s sadder than sad. I hope all of the new product hits all at once so everyone can get the stuff they want. Maybe everyone else will catch up on April 20th. By the way, the article title is really sarcastic. I don’t know if anyone will find new figures at Toys R Us or not. It would be pretty “funny” if Zuckuss ends up arriving there, but I highly doubt it.

Woo Hoo! Walmart, You Always Come Through!

I should have known better. I can’t wait until I have to track down their The Vintage Collection exclusives. They’re absolutely the worst. I asked the toy manager where the Solo toys were. She said “What’s Solo?” Let us know in the comments if you had better luck.

It's More Believable That This Is Photoshopped Than Real

This image is entirely disconcerting. If I didn’t know the person who sent me the picture of this store report, I would have assumed this was Photoshopped. The idiot who stole all of these figures should start paying attention to sites like this one because he would have learned that the character he took will be available in droves when it gets repacked as a Force Link 2.0 figure. (Whoops!) This thief is scum, but it would be helpful if Hasbro could release essential details like this as soon as possible to deter this behavior (perhaps).

Solo Products Continue To Leak Out

New Solo: A Star Wars Story product is hitting retail, and Walmart stores left and right. We’re only about a week out from the official launch. It’s getting exciting. I am still surprised that the Wampa And Luke Skywalker set in still in Star Wars [The Last Jedi] packaging. And that the Rathar is repacked. Special thanks to Brian P. for the report! (Solo products have been blackened out as a courtesy to Hasbro.)

JTA Facebook reader Craig G. has found the latest wave of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures at his local TARGET in Atlanta GA and each rang up for $10 a piece. It might be worth your while to check your local store and see if you can find similar deals. (This is proof that case assortments and distribution is still in very bad shape.)

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….)

SW [TLJ] Emperor Palpatine Hits NJ 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!

Latest TBS6 [P3] Wave Found At Target For Ridiculous Price!

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?

New Mighty Muggs Found In Illinois

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!).
