Hot on the heels of our report of the TVC Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figure hitting en masse, The Black Series [Phase III] Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Escape) 6″ figure is also arriving in substantial numbers as well. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Russ T. for the image.
As we told you, many TARGET locations set aside the new Hasbro Star Wars exclusive items in a special section away from toys for a quasi-Father’s Day type of display. See image below for the proof. As you know, the merchandise sold out almost immediately. There is good news as well as a silver lining. Just after selling out hours on May 12th, Gary H.’s store received a new shipment of Retro Collection figures. Other merchandise is expected soon as well. Keep the faith!
Tonight we are adding to our Visual Guides the recently released Target exclusive Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) 6-inch figure from The Black Series [Phase III]. Click below for our fully detailed guide page, and make sure to also check out our full review of this figure right here.
The Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) 6″ figure is gorgeous, even if it is an extremely scene-specific figure. See more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

As you know, there are four major releases this Sunday at TARGET. The already popular Retro Collection figures will make their debut (and have already shipped from online if you’ve pre-ordered them). The second big release is The Vintage Collection Han Solo (Stormtrooper) figure. The third is The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) figure with slicked-back wet hair. Lastly, the Escape From Death Star Board Game with exclusive Grand Moff Tarkin is also an official release May 12th.
Here’s a couple of deals to fill some holes if you need them. The Black Series 6″ figures for $4.99 as part of today’s Entertainment Earth Daily Deals:
Wow! This is fascinating! Entertainment Earth has rescued the remaining units from Toys R Us of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Commander Gree figure. Order it if you missed out the first time! It arrives in September! This presale could also be a reorder, but we imagine that’s very unlikely.
Pre-orders for the upcoming Wave 21 from The Black Series 6-Inch line have been out since they were announced at Celebration, but we wanted to remind everyone that you can still order them at Walmart.com for $17.97 each, the cheapest price so far (with free shipping). Click below for direct links if needed. These are listed to ship on July 1st.
If you held off on picking up the 6-Inch The Black Series Rey’s Speeder, Entertainment Earth has it as today’s Daily Deal for $25.99.
Wow! You can pre-order most of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures on Amazon right now for the low price of $17.99 each. Special thanks to friend Colin for the alert!
GameStop has the exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] Shock Trooper helmet for 50% off. Special thanks to JTA reader Vincent B. for the alert.
Pre-order the Amazon exclusive The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Emperor Palpatine with throne room chair!
It looks like Hasbro is finally doing right by Emperor Palpatine, as the long-rumored Force lightning is getting paired with the previously released figure and two additional portraits! And an all-new THRONE ROOM CHAIR! Awesome! How excited are you for the new The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ products getting announced at SWCC?
Although it’s made from mostly existing parts, Hasbro found a way to make the stunning Imperial Jumptrooper from Star Wars: Rebels a brilliant new 6″ figure.

JTA reader Jay found the Walmart exclusive The Black Series 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper at his Mount Pleasant, SC Walmart for $15. If you are looking to army build this figure (or just trying to find it for the first time), keep checking your Walmarts. Let us know in the comments if you find it at your local Walmart below retail. Thanks for the store report, Jay!
And the winner is…. Luke Skywalker (Dagobah). It’s interesting a figure that’s been in development for quite some time ends up being the winner of the Fans’ Choice Poll. Congratulations to all who won!
