JTA UK reader Matt H. has scored The Force Awakens 3.75" figures at his local Asda tonight and sends us a quick picture to show our readers the scale of the figures. He states that the Resistance Trooper, Poe Dameron and TIE Pilot are all quite poorly decoed however. Click below for larger images.
Target has put up an awesome display of a life-size BB-8. Click through for a quick video, complete with lights and sounds! Thank you JTA viewer Paul V. for sending this in!

From an anonymous source, we have received confirmation that an undisclosed Kmart has put out a ton of The Force Awakens product for sale! See just some of the stuff "this reader" was able to pick up! Of particular note, notice that this is a case of six 6" figures, another JTA rumor confirmed that 6" figures would be going from 4 per case to 6 per case! It's good news that Kylo Ren is packed two per case!

JTA reader ldfipps sends us an unbelievable store find: The Black Series 3.75" figures for 99¢! They were all sold out by the time he got there, but all of you should probably check your local Walgreens and see just how low they'll go!

If you live in the Davenport IA area, we highly suggest checking your local retailers that sell Star Wars figures. But even if you don't, it may be the right time for all of us to check retail fro The Black Series line (both scales). JTA reader Aaren A. sends us multiple reports from Walmart and Walgreens showing just how much of retail's attention span has been lost on The Black Series in order to prep for The Force Awakens line! Click through for his reports!

Those big and bulky Walmart displays keep showing up across the country. JTA superior commenter Martin M. found himself some wave 7 and wave 8 today in Texas today. Check out his report!

JTA reader Jub Goobles has found the former Amazon.com exclusive Droid Factory at Toys R Us Express at the Quakerbridge Mall in Lawrenceville NJ (less than a mile from where I work – stay out of my territory Jub).

JTA UK reader Matt H. eagerly reports in to let our readers know that The Black Series wave 7 and wave 8 have hit major retail there including stores like Sainsbury's. Click through for his complete report!
One of our readers who has asked to remain anonymous found additional Walmarts plans hanging in the Star Wars section (which had been cleared out) and they reveal a few new details that haven't been leaked thus far including a Star Wars: Battlefront event. Click each image below for additional details.
In case you've had no reason to visit your local TARGET for Star Wars figures for approximately the last three years like I have, you may not be aware that essentially all of their Star Wars sections are disappearing. They're being broken down and remaining items are being out on clearance in a special section elsewhere in the store, or on the end caps like this store has done. This of course is in full anticipation of Force Friday. Walmart stores are doing similar things as well now too. Special thanks to JTA reader Mike R. for the photo.

As JTA reader John W. wrote in his email to me, apparently the "Shadow Of The Dark Side" vehicles have indeed ended up everywhere at some point. This particular find was at a Chuck E. Cheese in Louisville KY. What a shame the failure of this vehicle assortment apparently became. They were all awesome and mostly made the last of the non-dumbed down vehicles for 3.75" figures. (Not including what may show up for Force Friday of course....)

Happy and eager JTA reader Justin M. sends us an awesome store report! You have heard this news already, but look at this massive find of action figure goodness Justin located. This is very similar to what we would find about 5 years ago all the time. Click through to read his report! It's amazing this quantity of waves 7 and 8 are hitting brick and mortar in these numbers!

Look what JTA Facebook fan Jonathan O. found at his local TARGET 10 hours ago! I have to admit that this is probably the most exciting thing I have seen hit TARGET shelves in years (price and all). Hey Jonathan! Get that Obi-Wan Kenobi/Super Battle Droid two-pack. It's the only place you'll find a Super Battle Droid with ball-jointed ankles! Not even the TVC version came with them!

JTA moderator Sjefke writes in to let us know that Marshalls stores are still getting Rebels product. Sadly, this is the first time many Star Wars collectors have found rebels products in stores. Hard to believe, isn't it?

Longtime JTA reader earthclanbootstrap eagerly sends us in a report because it's been months since he's found stuff. But he finally has! Click through for his multiple store reports!

Target.com has finally changed the price to The Black Series 6" Deluxe figures to $24.99. They are also running a buy one get one 50% off sale.We also received a tip that starting next week that the $19.99 6" line will be buy one get on 50% off too.
We hope that stores like this (in our immediate area) somehow find a way too rid themselves of the plague that is Princess Leia (Slave Outfit). These have been rotting since November 2013 and the store has received no other 6" figure since then. Also, in the last 12 months I have seen three new 3.75" super-articulated figures hanging from these pegs.

As a follow up to our previous story, we can confirm that if you have any straggling Rebels Saga Legends figures in your local TARGET store that they will ring up for a piddly $1.78 each (via LRT/not register), the last price in their computers.

Well, it was inevitable. With the horrid distribution of the Rebels line, it was only a matter time before we started finding products at discount chains. The first retail "discount" store report is here! Class II vehicles have been found at TJ Maxx stores. Special thanks to JTA reader Chris for the news!
Posted by Paul | July 01, 2015 at 05:01 PM EDT |
This really isn't anything too newsworthy, but it's more likely than not that if you find a Rebels figure at you local TARGET store that the system won't recognize the UPC any longer. While we understand the need for retail to prepare for The Force Awakens line, do any of you find it odd that Hasbro just didn't continue this assortment number to keep product active during the live airings of the show? We hope that most of these Rebels figures make their way into the new line look this September, especially Chopper. Special thanks to friend Chris S. for the image!

JTA reader Xo-tica from the UK eagerly sends us a report that waves 7 and 8 of The Black Series 3.75" line has arrived at Forbidden Planet in his neck of the woods. Click through for his report!
JTA reader Andy from New Zealand eagerly sends us a fantastic news report that wave 8 of The Black Series 3.75" line has hit his area (and on sale no less)! Madezra, we understand that nothing has been available in your area for a long time now. Would you please go on a toy run so you can come back to JTA and post now? We miss you. Anyway, click through for Andy's report!

If you're fortunate enough to have a Fred Meyers store near you, it may be time to make a toy run there. JTA reader Mike R. has sent us a report and proof that The Black Series 3.75" figures (including the latest wave 7 arriving at retail as we speak) are on sale for a mere $6.99 per figure. That's 2007-2008 pricing folks! Click through for his report!

In case this is news to you or not, JTA UK reader zx_spectrum_30 writes in to let us know that the Legacy Collection  figures can be found at Smyths Toys in the UK for £6.99 each (compare to £12 now for TBS). If you're still on the lookout for these, this may be another option for you.

While many parts of the country have been finding wave 7 of The Black Series 3.75" line, some are just finding them for the first time. Mark H. decided to take a trip to Alabama and was able to score a few new figures. Click through for his report.

Found! Wave 9 of The Black Series 6" line has been found in the Philippines. It's only a matter of time until the USA starts seeing these figures. Special thanks to JTA Facebook reader Jaeger Trooper Eityeiteity for the image.
