It’s almost as if Hasbro doesn’t realize that there is a hit series on Disney+ called The Mandalorian. It’s also almost as if Hasbro doesn’t want their products front and center at Big Box retail. And if we’re honest, it’s almost as if there isn’t a Star Wars toy line at all anymore when it comes to visiting the toy aisle physical retail shops. So why does Hasbro need brick-and-mortar again?

The Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Din Djarin & The Child has hit Walmart stores ON CLEARANCE. JTA reader Nathan B. found them for $10 each in the clearance aisle. He writes “I’m in Columbia Missouri. Longtime reader/lurker. They have 50 Din and Child The Vintage Collection for $10. Was so unbelievable to see a shelf like this I thought I would share.” Once again, can The Vintage Collection get a fair shake on anything?
You can go to any Walmart or Target store in your area and find almost every single Hasbro Star Wars product except for The Vintage Collection and The Black Series 6″ lines, save for a few 6″ remnants like Jyn Erso and Janna. And it’s been this way for much too long. What is going on here? How can Hasbro get all of the future and current peg-warming products out to retail with little effort? (more…)
The worst wave of The Vintage Collection repacks of all time is now hitting your local Walmart store. JTA reader and friend Russ T. found the wave at his local Walmart in NJ. Let us know of your store finds too in the comments!
JTA reader Mark G. found the TARGET exclusive The Black Series [Phase IV] Remnant Stormtrooper figure on clearance for $13.99! I haven’t even seen this once yet!
Yay! Aside from a few lucky exceptions, Walmart hasn’t had much when it comes to Star Wars. I just received a string of emails last night cancelling almost all of my pre-orders, from The Black Series 6″ figure, to The Vintage Collection figures. And ALL of my local Walmarts don’t have a blessed thing in years, including their Fall and Winter exclusives. I am tired of asking what’s going on with distribution anymore. But despite it all, the stuff that no one wants enters the stores with relative ease. Oh, and Walmart sure has plenty of stuff like this! Special thanks to friend Russ T. for the image.
I have been searching high and low for the latest wave of The Vintage Collection figures in my area. As expected, there is a blessed sign of them anywhere. At my local Walmart, I couldn’t help but notice multiple cases of the first wave of The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary] wave when I arrived to the toy aisle. (more….)
No matter what scale you collect, all collectors agree that Walmart is often problematic for collecting, especially when it comes to exclusives. This latest is example is a bit of a doozy. Take a look at what this collector got instead of his carbonized exclusive. Thanks to Cody S. and others who informed us of this story.
The latest TVC wave is hitting Walmarts everywhere. This score was found at my local Lexington, KY Walmart by fellow KSWCC member Jerry. Let us know in the comments where you are finding them!

JTA reader alientek found the Walmart exclusive TBS Ahsoka Tano, 332nd Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper, and Mandalorian Super Commando, as well as the TVC Carbonized figures at his local Texas Walmart. Click below for the proof! Are these showing up in your area? Let us know in the comments!
JTA Facebook reader Tanner M. sends us proof that he found the latest wave of The Black Series 6″ figures at his local Walmart. This wave includes Cad Bane and The Armorer.
It’s feast or famine, y’all! Instagram user blueharvestcollector found the latest wave of The Vintage Collection figures at his local TARGET in Boston Massachusetts. This wave includes the new Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) and Chirrut Imwe.
If you live in Canada, Walmart is getting the exclusive 332nd Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper (501st)! This report comes from kylocollector on Instagram.
Something from 2015 is rearing its ugly head five years later. During the Rebels line, Hasbro released commemorative four-packs based on the Star Wars films. Today I found The Empire Strikes Back sent at my local TARGET, and a few days ago, JTA reader Jon M. found the same. Nothing is arriving to stores, so maybe TARGET is clearing out its warehouse to have some Hasbro Star Wars stock?
The Black Series [Phase IV] Clone Trooper Lieutenant may have gone up for order today, but collectors across the country are finding it on the shelves too! JTA reader Justin C. found this a ta Seattle Walgreens!
This is why Hasbro was super-smart to make this item an online exclusive. JTA reader Jon M. found The Vintage Collection Millennium Falcon (Smuggler’s Run) on clearance for $279.99. We have no idea why TARGET would place a brand new item on clearance. All of the other Galaxy’s Edge stuff is full price. There is obviously a breakdown in communication somewhere. Either way, don’t expect to see too many of these instances at your local brick and mortar location! Click through for more!
JTA reader and friend Scot G. found the latest The Vintage Collection repacks wave including Wicket, Obi-Wan Kenobi (TCW), Anakin Skywalker (TCW), and Darth Maul at his kocal TARGET in Texas. You can see all of our updated and expanded galleries on all four figures HERE, as well as the new figures in the wave. If you’re looking to purchase these figures, use DPCI 087-16-6045.
Holy cow! The latest wave of The Vintage Collection figures was found at a local toy shop in St Louis. See vivisectstudios on Instagram for loose images! Special thanks to JTA reader Jack B. for the alert!
File this under “you’ll never know what you’ll find on store shelves.” JTA reader Peter M. found a TVC Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) (the VC150 version) and The Black Series Archive Yoda at his local TARGET in NJ. They were in nearly mint condition. The TVC figure was full price, but the Archives figure was $5.
We knew this was imminent, but JTA reader Thomas P. sends us photographic evidence of the TVC Millennium Falcon (Smuggler’s Run) vehicle has arrived at select brick and mortar stores. I am pretty sure Hasbro said these were TARGET online exclusives, but I suppose the exception is the stores with Galaxy’s Edge boutiques in them. If you missed our review, be sure to check it out HERE!
You can’t find them anywhere in any of planet earth’s brick and mortar chains for $12.99 each, but you can find them for $3.99 at Ollie’s! The reports are coming in! Today is the day for The Vintage Collection to hit Ollie’s! JTA reader Jeremy W. sends us an image that feels like a punch to the gut! There is something very perverse about any Stormtrooper figure arriving at a discount outlet. I also know Darth Vader is part of these case assortments and goes for at least double its MSRP, and that should never be a discount chain item either!
How did you make out at TARGET with the Galaxy’s Edge exclusives? Some have commented already that the Droid Depot 3.75″ figures were the hardest to find. Let us know and show your pictures in the comments!
There hasn’t been anything at my local Walmart stores in almost a year, but today I found the new The Mandalorian Mandalorian Darksaber. This is the first new anything Hasbro Star Wars since Triple Force Friday at this location.
JTA reader Jason R. found the latest Galaxy’s Edge The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures at his local TARGET, but they are register locked until August 30th. See the image below! The DPCI for Hondo is 087-16-6969. If anyone knows the DPCI for the Mountain Trooper, let us know!
