JTA reader German O. is visiting his friend in NJ and they found this at his friend’s local Walmart store. Because of a toxic mix including the inability to understand what a street date is in today’s day and age, Disney’s obnoxiously obscene territorial control over their licensees, and utter confusion about what is actually new in Star Wars, this particular Walmart has placed new The Last Jedi vehicles in the clearance aisle and marked them down to $19 (their normal MSRP is $39.99). It is unclear however if German was able to purchase it and walk out of the store with it, even at a clearance price. Doubtful. They probably told them they were recalled because of lead paint… by the store manager no less. I don’t know, I am just assuming that’s what happened.
Walmart.com has the Deluxe BB-8 for only $26 if you choose to have it shipped to the store for pick up! That is a great price for this huge BB-8 complete with lights, sounds, and of course the thumbs up lighter.
JTA reader Allen found a ton of 40th Anniversary Legacy Packs marked down at his local Walmart in Smithfield, RI. According to Allen, they are marked down to a mere $15! I know my local Walmarts have more than 20 of these each and they have yet to even mark them down at all. My Walmarts don’t have ANY of the Star Wars figures marked down yet…Which is strange. Have you found the Legacy Pack this cheap yet in your area? Let us know!
Still don’t believe The Black Series [Star Wars 40] 6″ line is out of production? We were waiting for the first store report to come in as we knew this was imminent from one of our sources. These 6″ figures are now being found on clearance at Walmart so they can prep for Force Friday II. Aside from some solid case packs via online, you can all stick a fork in this line. Special thanks to JTA reader Ben H. for sending us the first store report of this.
If you missed it on Amazon Prime Day, here’s another shot! You can get this Deluxe BB-8 for only $26.36 at Walmart.com after the sale discount and in store pick up discount. This thing was a lot cooler than I expected and I was happy I managed to snag him on Prime Day. Not to mention, my Niece can’t get enough of all his sounds. Special thanks to JTA reader Craig for the news!
The Air Hogs Millennium Falcon remote control drone is at a remarkably low price! $44,87 down from $205 and this thing is HUGE (in my best Presidential impersonation)! I got to play around with one of these things and the controls are excellent and it is a blast. If you’ve been holding out on this one, this seems like a great time to pull the trigger. Special Thanks to Craig for the tip!
A Reddit user has found a listing on Walmart.com that shows a new The Last Jedi pinball game. I mean, wow…exciting, but what this actually provided was a new look at three different Praetorian Guards, one new Stromtrooper Design, new look at Kylo Ren, a look at a brand new creature called “Porgs” as well as some other images. Again, these are spoilers so enter at your own risk!
ToysRUs.ca has wave 2 IN STOCK again!. Be sure to grab your 40th Anniversary figures while you can. Special thanks to JTA Facebook reader Rich P. for the news!
If you’re a fan of the Force FX Lightsabers, then Obi-Wan’s is a must! I always hated the fact that the blades were not removable, but in reality they come out easily (most of them) and undamaged if you just want to display the hilt (like I do). JTA Reader and friend sends us a report of finding this at his local Walmart in NJ. It might be time to start checking yours and avoid paying eBay prices. It is a great looking hilt. Are these in your area? Let us know
Walmart.com has lowered the price of the ever-popular The Black Series 6″ First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter to $65, down from the $74 they dropped it to less than two weeks ago. If you still need this, now might be a great time to grab it. If I had more room, I might actually grab a couple more of these. You also get free shipping or free in-store pickup. Special thanks to JTA reader Craig for the alert!
The successful The Black Series [Phase III] First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter 6″ vehicle continues to rear its ugly head and be found for pennies on the dollar on clearance. It’s now listed on Walmart.com for a low $74. Check it out if you’re interested.. Special thanks to JTA reader Mark M. for the alert!
While this report is anecdotal at best for the moment, check out what Facebook friend Derek T. discovered at his local Walmart with regards to the status of ALL current Hasbro Star Wars figures. Besides, we can’t imagine this not happening nationally soon anyhow. (more….)
We are talking “pre-return of TVC” here. We all knew that giving Walmart the exclusive TBS [P3] 3.75″ super-articulated basic figure line was probably the debacle of the ages. In fact, it may have been the worst decision for the health of the SA 3.75″ Star Wars line even beyond The Phantom Menace 3D decisions made in 2012. (more….)
The Black Series [Star Wars 40] Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) just popped in stock at Walmart.com. But there is only one problem: it’s $49.95. This has happened before, but they’re scalping their own stock again. Can anything else go wrong with this line? Thanks to friend Steve U. for the alert!
If you’re still looking to grab the Jedha Revolt 4-pack, Amazon has them listed at $17.99. Or if you prefer, Walmart has it for $18.75. I will say, it is a nice little 4-pack especially with the inclusion of Saw. So if you’ve been waiting, it may be time to pull the trigger. Special thanks to JTA reader Logan for bringing this to our attention!
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.
Friend Steve U. has been spending his Saturday hacking Walmart.com and has discovered some upcoming products. Some has been “teased” here while others haven’t There are some new Titanium Series products as well as Roleplay items. Check them out below by clicking the thumbnails below.
JTA regular Mark directs our attention to an interesting turn of events on a much wanted action figure. The elusive Rogue One (Star Wars: Rebels) Fenn Rau that once showed as “This item is no longer available” has just changed its status online at Walmart to “Coming Soon”. As you know, we CANNOT get a straight answer on this figure from official sources. Can this product page update serve as any glimmer of hope, a sign or guarantee that it’s still coming? Probably not, but we still believe that this currently hard-to-find figure will see future better availability – we just don’t know when exactly.
UPDATE: It DID say “Coming Soon” earlier (see attached screen shot as evidence), but it’s now showing as “No Longer Available”. I guess our hope is shot down now.
Wow, this one almost bypassed us! We don’t hang out on social media so we don’t know how many people out there are finding this, but it appears that the Darth Revan wave is making its way to Walmart. JTA reader and friend CS E. saw a bump in his local Walmart inventory of The Black Series [Phase III] figures so he went to check out what the store got. What he found was the Darth Revan wave. (The Darth Revan included was the new one though (cape tuck)). The AT-AT Driver was also the Driver and not Pilot. So this is clearly a new-old case. And they were 9.84… not bad. It looks like this wave might fall under “too much too late”. Sad. Be sure to let us know if you’re finally finding this wave at your local Walmart. This may be one of the few store reports that this wave is hitting there. I haven’t heard otherwise.
Forget about maintaining exclusive rights to any part of the Hasbro Star Wars line, Walmart, this great retail partner of Hasbro’s, shouldn’t even be allowed to carry Star Wars figures. Special thanks to an anonymous reader who asked us to share this image.
