TRU has all their Exclusive Star Wars Animatronics marked down to $34.99 (down from $99)! This is a pretty great price for these.

Amazon has added the product page for the new TBS 6″ Episode VIII Chewbacca. I was kinda hoping they would include a Porg! Can’t have enough Porgs! Though it really looks like they used the Episode VII image, let’s hope the actual one is different. Thanks to JTA reader TC Wood for the heads up!
Let’s continue a months-long look at new products from the Force Friday II product launch. Next up is Chewbacca from the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] line Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

So far there are three things that are sticking in my craw when it comes to porgs. 1. The pun of porg with “porn” (yuck). 2. The mispronunciation of “porg” with “prog” (duh), 3. And last but not least theft of these little porg accessories with the Star Wars [The Last Jedi] Chewbacca figure (this makes me so mad). We all knew this was inevitable. Hasbro, get ahead of this mess and produce “porg packs” or something. Thank you. Special thanks to friend Rum Sleg for the report and image.
I have stumbled across a few more The Last Jedi Pop figure images. Chewbacca, A Walmart Exclusive Resistance BB-Unit, and a Chase Limited Edition Porg (sorry, the image is awful).
3 Chewbaccas, 16 Jawas, and 44 Death Squad Commanders! This isn’t a third grade math problem or the start of a joke, this is what JTA reader Agustín came across while on business in Monterrey, Mexico in a store called Julio Cepeda. We share in Agustín’s concern of how Monterrey has this many in stock, meanwhile tons of Walmarts and TRU’s have only received 1, 2, or even ZERO cases. ¡Ay Caramba! Thanks again to Agustín for this report!
The Gentle Giant LTD. Early Bird Kit can be pre-ordered right now! It retails for $279.99.
This is not something we as collectors are unfamiliar with. Walmart has done this before, but just look at the egregious prices Walmart is selling Wave 2 at. These have been coming in and out of stock at this price since the announcement came of the discontinuation. What’s worse, they sell out within minutes. This is who we had to rely on for our 3.75″ SA figures for awhile…thankfully that is ending. Click through to see more images.
ToysRUs.ca has wave 2 in stock now, be quick and grab your 40th Anniversary figures while you can. Special thanks to JTA reader Chris B. for the news!
These have been going so very fast, so it doesn’t help for me to post in stock alerts. However, for the past few hours ALL of them have been coming in and out of stock frequently for $19.99. I got a Stormtrooper 2 hours ago and just now got Chewbacca. So I recommend keeping an eye out because these will get harder and harder to find.
For our Canadian readers, Walmart.ca has the all of wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary except for C-3PO in stock now. Thanks to JTA reader Elie for the alert!
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.
