JTA reader and friend Michael O. alerts us to another Five Below find. I haven’t heard these particular figures hitting this retail collection, but I may have just forgotten. Regardless, this was the first time Michael has ever seen this figures at retail! Sad!
JTA Canadian reader Jamie D. sends us a remarkable store report. Do you remember the Amazon exclusive First Order Legion boxed set with seven figures? They have now shown up at Toys R Us in Canada for only $29.99 (original MSRP on Amazon was $47.99). As you know, these nearly go for $100 on Amazon today, so this is quite a surprising store find. Let us know if you see these in your local stores. I wonder why Amazon didn’t sell through their stock because once they sold out they never replenished and collectors wanted these. And I also wonder if American collectors will see this at their TRU stores. Weird. On a related note, I wonder if this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unsold TFA toys….
It’s probably a good bet that collectors of the 3.75″ The Last Jedi line will see Hasbro double their efforts when it comes to articulation in the line. (more….)
It might be time to start really paying attention to Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store. They’ve taken new markdowns on products that have been full price until now, including TBS6 figures. It will be interesting to see how low these will go….
In case you weren’t aware, HasbroToyShop.com is running many of the same deals on their eBay store and from what it appears to us a little more variety. Be sure to check it out. Special thanks to JTA reader John B. for the reminder!
Toys R Us is having a Buy 2 Get the 3rd Free sale on almost everything Star Wars. I’m not sure if this is Online Only, but maybe you can snag a few things you’ve been passing up on.
Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store still has some great deals and they start as low as $1.50. Be sure to browse the deals as you never know what you might find for dirt cheap!
How many of these did Hasbro make? The last time we recall asking this question was in 2012 with the Star Wars [The Phantom Menace 3D] line which was a total and utter retail debacle. However, now it seems the same is becoming true for The Force Awakens line. Who would have thunk 5POA for a new Star Wars film WASN’T the way to do things? Huh! How about that? JTA reader Mark L. also chimes in with “My Five Below in Denton TX restocked all their SW figures so that means a whole new set of $4 (down from $5) unmasked Kylo, Resistance Rey, Nien Nunb and Squad Leader FO Troopers. Where are these coming from?” We’ll probably be seeing the TFA 5POA figures for a VERY long time.
