As you recall, we posted a "rumor" that there would be subsequent "Force Friday" events throughout the rest of the year. It looks like we have even more information to corroborate that story. JTA reader Matt G. sends us new Walmart plan-o-gram/mod reset documents for an October 5th reset date. Keep in mind that all further "resets" are soft and not street date protected. You may see "new" stuff as early as now. Let us know what you find!

Per robotkingdom.com, it appears that the Star Wars: Battlefront Imperial Shock Trooper that was recently revealed is going to be a Walmart exclusive. This information exclusively comes from robotkingdom.com, but they have been right on the money in the past. Special thank to JTA reader and friend STeve U. for the alert!

Site Fast Company interviews Hasbro designer director Steve Evans and post a few revealing images. Although the caption to the image below reads that these are 3.75" action figures, we're pretty certain that these are 6" versions instead, judging from the legs. Anyhow, we get a cleaner look at the alternate looks of the Poe Dameron figure! Special thanks to Tim M. for the alert!

Uh-oh. It seems that ToysRUs.com took too many orders for the First Order Stormtrooper. See what JTA reader Henry received in the mail today by clicking through.

Could The Black Series C-3PO finally be revealed? We're inclined to believe yes it has, but that's just a guess. JTA reader Julian C. sends us images to our Facebook page of bootleg The Black Series 6" Star Wars figures. Yes, it's a bootleg, but as you know from past bootlegs, they (whoever "they" are) actually cast these figures from the actual Hasbro figures. If you recall, C-3PO has been confirmed as a "coming soon" TBS6 figure for a LONG TIME now. Not only has Hasbro confirmed it to us, but he was also confirmed through an exclusive JTA reveal from June when the fussy protocol droid appeared in a Walmart computer listing. Let's hope the final figure looks better than this one does (thanks to vac-metallization and better use of articulation)! Again, this is us just surmising as we could be way off the mark here. But we imagine that the molds must have arrived at some plant in China now and production was halted because of the vac-metallization issue. We'll just have to wait and see obviously.

Force Friday continues? That's what we have just learned. As always, we suggest taking every rumor that isn't confirmed by Hasbro with a grain of salt of course, but sources close to us say that Hasbro will continue launching new products once a month through December on a Friday. The next "launch" is October 9th supposedly (which makes a whole lot of sense based on our official statement from Hasbro we posted earlier today) and November's date is the 6th. Of course, distribution doesn't mean every location will get products at the same time, but it is expected we'll start seeing trends of new products arriving across the country in relatively the same time frame. In the "October 9th launch", it's expected that we'll see The Black Series 3.75" wave 2 from Walmart as well as the Nerf Millennium Falcon (among other things).
This is something we haven't seen to date, but that doesn't mean it wasn't revealed somewhere else. But our friends at StarWarsFiguren.com alert our attention to the Hero Series scaled Captain Phasma 12-inch figure. Check it out!

We reached out to Hasbro via Hunter PR for an official statement on the seemingly limited availability of most of the toys from The Force Awakens Force Friday launch. We also have a statement about the Walmart exclusive The Black Series 3.75" wave 2 which most of us have been waiting on pins and needles to learn more. We can now share it with you.

Gamestop.com has The Black Series 6" Anakin Skywalker in stock for $22.99! Grab him before he's gone forever! Special thanks to Chris A. for the alert!
UPDATE: It looks out of stock now. But do a store check using the tool on the same page as this product is featured. I found one down the street from me. Just picked it up!

Amazon has another The Black Series pre-order live! This time it's the 6 Inch First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter! This comes with a hefty $169.99 price tag, but it is quite an impressive sculpt for this scale. Also, Amazon will adjust your pre-order price for items that it puts on sale later. This high price could drop as it gets closer to the October 31st release date. Click through for the full listing!

We have just learned that the Amazon exclusive 7-pack has been delayed until January 30, 2016. Special thanks to all the readers that forwarded their Amazon emails to us!

So, the good news surrounding the Walmart exclusive The Black Series 3.75" line is that they are selling quite well. We have received multiple reports from surprised readers of how their local stores have these figures and now they're history. (Hopefully wave 1 wasn't produced in TPM 3D quantities and waiting to arrive from a warehouse somewhere.) The bad news (if you ordered these online) is that they're arriving with huge white stickers covering up half the box.
