Wow. Here is an interesting scoop for those who have HEB grocery stores near them (I believe they're frequently found in Texas). JTA reader Steve U. has a friend in Texas who sent him this image from a HEB store. They're already selling the 40th anniversary figures. Why does this feel like The Phantom Menace 3D debacle of 2012 all over again to me? So is every store on Earth going to have the same four or five TBS6 [SW40] in stock for the next couple of year?

We're getting inundated for days now with fantastic store reports that TBS6 fans are finding the Imperial AT-ACT Driver TARGET exclusive. Admittedly a cool figure, don't expect his vehicle any time soon. Thanks to all who wrote in providing reports and images.

Weeks long insomnia from home appliance 'stress hell' while working full time and running a site means more news posts for you. The new TARGET kicker displays full of some new and a lot of old products is beginning to hit across the nation. JTA reader Aric B. feels hat refreshing sense of hope by seeing something new in stores, but when the contents are mostly old it feels utlimately disappointing.

JTA reader Jason L. has found the pretty awesome Speeder Bike (with Biker Scout) 12-Inch set at his local ROSS in California for a mere $6.99. We reviewed this set and found it favorable. You may want to see if this is for your collection too.

Found! The Black Series [Phase III] Darth Revan wave has been found at Toys R Us in Frisco Texas. JTA reader Mark lets us know! It's unbelievable how long it has taken this wave to show up at TRU. What's VERY interesting about this is that the case features the new Princess Leia Organa, so it's not like these were sitting in warehouses for months.
UPDATE: Store report is from Texas and the case features the new Princess Leia Organa. I smell conspiracy theory.

kylocollector on Instagram is reporting that The Black Series 6" Early Bird "Leacy" Pack has been found in Canada. Special thanks to General Hux for the news. Please, no more Instagram news. I can't deal with another social media outlet. :)

Well, this is GREAT news. JTA reader Michael G. from the UK has found the ASDA exclusive 3.75" Captain Cassian Andor and Scarif Stormtrooper at his local store. They're finally hitting! Michael also let us know that the latest Rogue One figures have hit there as well! You might want to go on a toy run if you're in the UK!
JTA reader moseisleynative checked in to let us know that the Revoltech R2-D2 is currently on sale on Amazon for nearly half-off. He picked it up for $25, but it is currenlty up to $28. Click here to check it out...
Just wanted to share a heads up to other JTA readers that the Revoltech R2D2 is on sale at amazon.com for $25. I just picked one up for myself. I know it’s not the end all be all R2 but a darn nice sculpt & paint for half price.

Wo! Here is a very positive UK store report. JTA reader Matt H. sends us exciting news that NEW The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75" figures are hitting his local ASDA store. Click through for his awesome report!
We're continuing to get store reports for the Jedha Revolt multipack. This is also from Meijers, but in Wisconsin this time. Keep sending your reports, or feel free to post your find in our comments! Special thanks to JTA reader Ryan L. for this report!
It's been a pretty big lull out there for new product lately so when we get a store report about the latest Rogue One wave we are happy to post it! JTA reader Chuck found them at Walmart in Canton, OH today. Thanks for the update!

A new Two-Packs set has been found at Walmart. But why does it include Captain Phasma and Finn? Hasbro, we have some great Two-Pack ideas for you if you're scraping the bottom of the barrel already. Special thanks to JTA reader Paul V. for store report!

We are getting a ton of reports that the Walmart exclusive Imperial AT-ST Walker And Imperial AT-ST Driver is being found all over the place. From Kansas City MO to Pittsburgh PA. From Orlando FL to North Dakota. Store are doing resets and putting this baby out. If you need to know why you need this set, be sure to check out our RDR and VG right here. (Special thanks to JTA reader Craig F. for the image.)

Brand new variants of previously available The Black Series 6" figures are showing up on store shelves. Check out this latest sculpt. Special thanks to JTA reader Wayne D. for the store report. (If you don't have a sense of humor, this is a sarcastic post and this is just more store theft.)

JTA reader Andrew G. has found MULTIPLE bootleg The Black Series [Phase III] 6" figures at his local Kmart. It seems that the same people that have painted these bootlegs are the same people who paint Hasbro's figures. Click through for his story. How are these three figures bootlegs? Shouldn't they be spending time bootlegging R2-D2 and Darth Maul instead?

JTA reader Steve, a relatively newer collector found this at his local Walmart and was perplexed over what he found. Stephen, this is the original 1983 Admiral Ackbar figure from the Return Of The Jedi line. Why this person would steal the 2016 Admiral Ackbar and leave the accessory behind is beyond me. Also, I am not sure if this thief got a deal. Didn't he lose money here?

Before CJ comments that this means The Black Series [Phase III] line is dead, we'd like to draw your attention to one Walmart in NC that has all the 6" figures for $9.84 each. Interesting. Special thanks to friend Josh M. for the images and news.

JTA reader Shawn P. alerts us to a store we haven't heard about before until now. The retail store Mardens in Maine is a surplus and salvage store and in Shawn's local store is a huge supply of brand new The Black Series [Phase III] 6" figures for under $13 each. (Did Hasbro forecast a little bit too high for Rogue One?) Anyway, it's no secret that you can find most of the latest TBS6 figures for significantly less than retail, but we had no idea that Hasbro (or accounts that have bought this product and are sitting on it) is/are already shipping their stock to discount chains. What's more disconcerting is that the Walmart exclusive TBS line as well as the Rogue One products have been found here as well with significant discounts. This is strange because many of us have yet to see anything from some of these lines at our local stores (especially the Walmart 3.75" SA line). It's maddening. Click through for Shawn's report.

Many of you are sending in reports of finding an "unannounced" Walmart exclusive three-pack, but JTA broke the news of this set on October 1st. Check out the article HERE. The news now is that it is being found! Thank you for your store reports!

....While half the country hasn't either seen any, or anything beyond the Finn/Poe wave. Look what JTA reader and friend Josh P. found at his local Walmart in Ohio. Walmart is once again CLUELESS! They're almost as bewildered as Hasbro for even giving them this cherished action figure format.
Thanks to reader Craig N. for letting us know Walgreens has a 25% coupon for use in-store and online! The coupon is good through Saturday. Click here for details.

JTA reader H. Costanza lets us know he found the the Black Series wave 9 (Sabine wave) at his local ThinkGeek brick-and-morter store is Hurst, TX. (Looks like he missed Darth Revan by just a few minutes.) Do you have a ThinkGeek store near you? Find out by clicking this link!

Looks like Target & Walmart are the places to go for your Black Series needs. Colin reports finding the Krennic Wave at a Piscataway, NJ Target. JTA reader Anton L. reports finding almost an entire platoon worth of the Walmart Exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper. Thanks to both for the store reports! If you find anything new and exciting in your area, let us know.
At my local Target I found the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader and Director Krennic 6” Black Series figures, (They had C3PO, but I’m passing on that one.) Also, Target was running a special for 20% off all toys (excluding some games and Legos). I ended up saving $4 per figure. Look for signage at your local Target and text the code for a scannable coupon on your phone.

Those of you who have TARGET's Cartwheel app are in for a real treat. Today ONLY (and I believe in store only), there are offering a one-time coupon of 30% off toys – it excludes LEGO unfortunately. If you don't have the app, there are directions at the brick and mortar location to text PLAY to 827438. I just took advantage on this deal. It was super cool. Remember, its' TODAY ONLY and a ONE TIME USE, so choose wisely.

Looks like reader Corey P. scored the newest 6” Black Series figures at the Minneapolis Mall of America GameStop. Congrats Cory, and thanks for the heads-up!
Posted by Paul | November 18, 2016 at 08:03 PM ET |
We know TARGET is getting older stock, but is Walmart also getting old product too? We have a report of some orange packaged stuff, and not the blue phase of The Black Series has just been found as well. What is going on here? This report is from James S., and we're trying to find out his location.

File this under: You'll never know what you find years after the fact. JTA reader joshxdestroy stopped by a Walmart in South Carolina and found these items in the clearance racks. The associate told him that they just found these in the back stockroom.
