JTA reader Ken reports that Targets in AZ are starting to receive these exclusive Pops!. Each Target received only 4 so these may be scarce for awhile. They’ll probably be making their way around the rest of the US this weekend, so be on the lookout because you’ll never know what you’ll find. I stumbled across a Rey with speeder Pop! at Walmart the other day. Ken was also kind enough to provide the DCPI 323-01-0569. Good luck!
….and saw himself on sale for less than 5 bucks! I’m not good at telling jokes, so thankfully this isn’t one. How would you like to pay under $5 for some great The Black Series 6″ figures? Well, JTA reader JediRebel77 shares with us quite a find at a local Target store. Even though we all love to find a deal, Target REALLY needs to make some changes to the way they handle inventory for Star Wars figures. Click through to see what kind of deals we’re seeing.
If you’re still looking to grab the Jedha Revolt 4-pack, Amazon has them listed at $17.99. Or if you prefer, Walmart has it for $18.75. I will say, it is a nice little 4-pack especially with the inclusion of Saw. So if you’ve been waiting, it may be time to pull the trigger. Special thanks to JTA reader Logan for bringing this to our attention!
If you happen to live near a Meijer, you’re in for some savings. They’re apparently putting ALL Star Wars products on clearance including 6″ 40th Anniversary, Legacy Pack, 40th Anniversary Die-cast, and much much more. Thanks to JTA Facebook reader Tanner M. for the heads up!
Not only did I personally run to my local Walmart in East Brunswick, NJ at 10:43 PM to dig out a Wave 2 box from the stacks of toys, but we also got a report only 30 minutes later from JTA reader Aric who apparently did the exact same thing as me, but in Chicago. Keep an eye out folks! They seem to be coming around. I know many people haven’t even seen them yet, so don’t give up.
We found a couple of new exclusives at TARGET today including this adorable Tusken Raider And Bantha Galactic Plushies set for $29.99. We had to walk away because it almost ended up in our cart. There was also a new Hasbro role play set which we forgot the name of already, but it was $49.99.
When we report things that Hasbro directly say to us at conventions as tidbits of new information or confirmation, the doubt that still remains within the collecting community perplexes us. JTA reader Paul G. sends us proof of what unequivocally MUST BE multiple solid case packs of Qui-Gon Jinn. Maybe Amazon didn’t get them yet because they’re showing up at ThinkGeek stores instead. We don’t know as that’s just a guess, but the takeaway here is that Hasbro was completely right that ALL The Black Series 6″ figures going forward will be available in solid case packs (until that directive changes). Case closed, no pun intended RFG. Click through for more information.
No new stock in months, which is nearly approaching years now. The same old stock continues to rot on shelves. Most retailers (if not all now) have TBS6 figures WELL BELOW the MSRP of $19.99/$21.99. What is truly going on anymore? Now another retailer desperately tries to move old stock. Have all of you seen the new sale at Toys R Us for their remaining stock of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures? The sale runs through July 1st (which is quite a long time out) and the figures have been marked down to $11.99 each. There has to be more going on here across all current brick and mortar retailer than meets the eye. Is there just not a big enough audience for this line or is Hasbro making too many of them? (The solution is the same answer.)
Wow, this one almost bypassed us! We don’t hang out on social media so we don’t know how many people out there are finding this, but it appears that the Darth Revan wave is making its way to Walmart. JTA reader and friend CS E. saw a bump in his local Walmart inventory of The Black Series [Phase III] figures so he went to check out what the store got. What he found was the Darth Revan wave. (The Darth Revan included was the new one though (cape tuck)). The AT-AT Driver was also the Driver and not Pilot. So this is clearly a new-old case. And they were 9.84… not bad. It looks like this wave might fall under “too much too late”. Sad. Be sure to let us know if you’re finally finding this wave at your local Walmart. This may be one of the few store reports that this wave is hitting there. I haven’t heard otherwise.
How many of these did Hasbro make? The last time we recall asking this question was in 2012 with the Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] line which was a total and utter retail debacle. However, now it seems the same is becoming true for The Force Awakens line. Who would have thunk 5POA for a new Star Wars film WASN’T the way to do things? Huh! How about that? JTA reader Mark L. also chimes in with “My Five Below in Denton TX restocked all their SW figures so that means a whole new set of $4 (down from $5) unmasked Kylo, Resistance Rey, Nien Nunb and Squad Leader FO Troopers. Where are these coming from?” We’ll probably be seeing the TFA 5POA figures for a VERY long time.
At least they are carrying these super awesome 40th Anniversary plastic cups that are useful for drinking a huge cup of “Why haven’t you moved out those Hovertank Pilots” tea. My local TRU in NJ has only received the Legacy pack, die-cast (once), and these awesome cups. One can only hope they get this fixed before “Force Friday” later this year. What does your TRU store look like lately?
Forget about maintaining exclusive rights to any part of the Hasbro Star Wars line, Walmart, this great retail partner of Hasbro’s, shouldn’t even be allowed to carry Star Wars figures. Special thanks to an anonymous reader who asked us to share this image.
