We are quite fond of The Black Series [Phase III] Centerpiece Collection sets Hasbro has released this year on Force Friday II. They provide beautiful scenery and a great backdrop for the 6″ figures while introducing static figures a lot like the former Unleashed figures into the mix as well. With the release of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker in this line already, we believe there are two characters are sorely missing from this line that we should probably expect to see in this format soon. Kylo Ren and Rey would make two important character releases in this format, no?
Funko revealed two near exclusive Pop! Four packs for Costco. The first is called “First Order Four Pack” and includes Kylo Ren with Glow In the Dark Lightsaber, Supreme Leader Snoke, First Order Executioner, and BB-9E. The second is called “Rebel Four Pack” and includes Rey with Glow in the Dark Lightsaber, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca (with his Porg Pal), and BB-8. Each Pop! is individually packaged within the four-pack box. It’s hard to justify buying a four-pack of Pop! figures most collectors have just because of a slight change (says the guy with every FO Snowtrooper “Variant”), but where have we heard something crazy like that before?? If you’re a die-hard Pop! collector or you haven’t gotten these individually yet, you just might have to pick this up. They do look nice in that four-pack box, but I didn’t even know Costco still existed!
Entertainment Earth has Rey’s Force FX Lightsaber up for pre-order with a December release date.

If you’re trying to get your hands on the Rey Token that is missing from Monopoly, you need only jump through a few hoops. JTA Reader Derek shows us what he needed to do to acquire this piece from Hasbro. Click the image to see what is required. I guess they’re keeping track of who wants the piece since Age & Gender of the person using the product is part of the test!
The Chicago Tribune has posted an article sure to upset many claiming that “insufficient interest” has prevented Hasbro from including the Monolopy “Rey” game piece inside of the package. Oh boy, this is going to be an interesting discussion. Special thanks to JTA reader Mark P. via our friends at Yakface.com for alerting us to this breaking news development! FYI, there is a silver lining, be sure to read the article.
