The Walmart exclusive TVC Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure has been found at a brick and mortar store in Virginia. I suppose it’s possible these could be returns from online, but it’s aesthetically pleasing to see them hanging from the shelves to cover up so much junk behind it. Special thanks to JTA reader Thomas N. for the image and news!

It Felt Like It Went So Smoothly Too; Walmart Is A Disaster

The Walmart Exclusive The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) process seemed like things had changed for the giant retailer, but now things are turning for the worse, and orders can’t be fulfilled (despite order statuses claiming it will arrive today). It was too good to be true we suppose. WARNING: salty language exists on this thread, but if you’re interested to see what a fellow collector experienced, check out this thread at Rebelscum Special thanks to JTA reader Rich K. for the alert. And if you have better luck, let us know!

Walmart Begins Markdowns for The Vintage Collection

While Brickseek isn’t always reliable when it comes to inventory quantities, it’s usually pretty good in letting you know the price of an item in store (if it’s there at all…). It looks like Walmart has begun marking down Vintage Collection figures. Most stores in my area are $9.87. Let us know if you find figures at a lower price point in the comments!

46 figures… and at least 10 are Snoke. Any bets on how long it will take to clear the pegs?

We’ve had tons of reports over the past few days of the previously MIA Stormtrooper (Mimban) The Vintage Collection figure showing up in large quantities at Walmarts. Viewers have reported from Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Kansas, and New York, to name a few. If you have been waiting for this to drop on shelves, now is the time to start hunting. Thanks for all the viewers who wrote in, and chime in in the comments to post your own finds to help others out.

Found! Galaxy Of Adventures Wave 2 Hits Walmart!

JTA reader and friend “Logan” found the Galaxy Of Adventures wave 2 at his local Walmart. Admittedly, these figures look pretty neat in the colorful packaging. Too bad they’re all repacked figures. Well, the Stormtrooper isn’t. It looks like the Solo Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure painted all white with the Rogue One helmet.

Walmart: Hasbro's "GREAT" Retail Partner!

Pop Quiz! The image below represents what approximate date? A. October 2018. B. November 2018. C. December 2018. D. It doesn’t matter. This is how the section always looks and I can’t remember the last time I could purchase something from it that remotely interested me. SPOILER: The answer is D. In all honesty, save for some unwanted TVC products like the Imperial TIE Fighter and the repacks, I don’t think this section has changed since the Solo: A Star Wars Story product launch.

Hasbro Is Struggling?

While we are still a few weeks away before Hasbro will release their numbers for the 4th quarter and full year there are already some early numbers and estimates that paint a rather grim picture for Hasbro, especially when it comes to action figures and here especially Star Wars. Click through for some very interesting numbers that may be reason for concern.

The Black Series Archive Figures Hitting Walmart

The new The Black Series Archive figures are starting to hit retail. JTA reader Walter found them at his local North Carolina Walmart…

I really enjoy your website. Tonight I was wrapping up some last minute shopping hoping to find the new Resistance figures or maybe even the latest Solo wave and came across this. The whole new archive black series wave was at my local Walmart in Greenville NC. Luke, Boba, IG-88, and this guy, who had to come home with me. They are out there!

Walmart's Stock Of TVC Figures Not All Gloom And Doom

JTA reader Andrew writes in to share his good fortune with his local Ohio Walmart and The Vintage Collection

Despite the gloom of boxes worth of wave 1 hitting Walmart in droves this month, All is not lost, guys! I just dropped into the Wadsworth, Oh Walmart Supercenter and found, to my amazement, a treasure trove of Waves 2 and 3. I counted 3 Dr. Aphras and 2 Hovertank pilots, and plenty of Young Han and Range Troopers! Granted, the stock workers got lazy and hid the bulk of the new figures on the shelf above the pegs, but I did my duty and pulled them all down, then squeezed them onto the pegs to be found better. I’m personally set with TVC so far, so I didn’t grab any (tho I did pick up a Black Series Bespin Han that’s been there for a week), but hopefully this means others will be able to plug holes for a decent retail price.

Happy holiday hunting, guys! There hope yet for Star Wars collector’s this Christmas!

Walmart Restocks TVC, Force Link 2.0, Galaxy of Adventures

I went to Walmart late at night for some groceries, and of course meandered (first thing) over to the toy section. Christmastime is always fun because there are a good 5-10 pallets of new inventory waiting to be stocked. After searching through the pallets to see what there was, I found several boxes of goodies… and baddies! Click through to find out more.

Mimban Stormtrooper (VC123) Sales

Crazy that back in July the Mimban Stormtrooper TVC figure hit eBay, and since then, there has been only one store report from Australia that this figure has even touched retail pegs (and they don’t even have Walmarts). Yet, on the eBays, there are plenty available if you want to pay the price. If you’re wondering where on earth this figure is… It’s still in China since that’s where 135 of them has been sold from! Again: Hasbro, you are already killing us with the repacks, at least distribute the few good figures you choose to make!

Walmart Believes They Are America's Best Toy Shop

Walmart had dropped hints months earlier that they would try to fill the retail toy footprint abandoned by Toys R Us’ demise. But now Walmart appears to be a little too cocky for their own good. Billing themselves as “America’s Best Toy Shop,” it looks like they have bigger plans they can handle in mind. Or maybe it’s all a facade. Only time will tell. Click the image below to see their latest ad. Special thanks to JTA reader RB for sending it our way.

How Retail Works (Probably Not As You Think)

Among Star Wars collectors a very common misconception seems to be widespread: that of the vendor or manufacturer that dumps some pegwarmers on unsuspecting retailers who then have to see how on earth they can get rid of all that junk they just bought. The vendor or manufacturer meanwhile leans back in their seat, counts the dollar bills, lights a Cuban cigar with a $100 bill and cackles maniacally while lightning and thunder fill the sky in the background. Ok, I may exaggerate a tiny little bit here, since the vendor is of course on a tropical island without any thunder and lightning. But one idea that is often found in comments is that of Hasbro simply dumping product on the doorstep of retailers who then scratch their heads and wonder how to sell the stuff and who then have to resort to deep discounts to clear shelf space to finally get rid of unwanted junk. Losing money in the process. The actual truth is very, very different. So click through to find out more about the complicated world of the retailer – vendor relationship.

Is Retail Actually Improving For Star Wars?

JTA reader and friend Danny R. sends in an image to us reflecting the new life breathed into Walmart stores as of late. While I cannot say my store looks anywhere as stocked as his store does, I can say that I have witnessed signs of life that are both comforting and therapeutic. Philly was “Hasbrotopia” during the Golden Age of Collecting. For the last five years, it has become a barren wasteland. But I was one of the fortunate ones who found wave 3 of The Vintage Collection arrive (before I received my supply from my Asian sources) and General Veers has just begun to hit my local Walgreens. Before this, I didn’t find ONE Walgreens Star Wars exclusive, and there is a store on every corner out here. Plus, I expect to see the 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper hit shortly as well. Oh, and in typical fashion, TARGET has pretty much held it together well without issue, although their mainline stock is mostly dreadful. In short, I do see improvements. Do you?

Wow. This Walmart thinks The Vintage Collection is on clearance. Do they know something we don’t know? That’s doubtful, because they have three exclusives from The Black Series [Phase III] and The Vintage Collection lines that for intents and purposes have yet to arrive. I suppose our string of goodf luck could only last so long with Walmart. We all got a lift in our step when we dound wave 2 and wave 3 pretty much across the country. And we got more excited when the Imperial TIE Fighter started showing up too. Now we’re getting reports of the latest TVC figures getting out on clearance for almst 50% off. Does the Star Wars line truly have a chance at Walmart? Special thanks to JTA reader Reuben G. for the report and images.
