Toy Run Tuesday #102 - A Walmart Miracle

This week Walmart came through and delivered a MINT Paploo. I mean this thing was packaged in a normal sized box with extra padding lying flat on the bottom of the package. I was shocked at how good the condition was for a Walmart exclusive. More…

Walmart at it Again in a Fiery Figure Debacle

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.

While Hasbro didn’t talk about any of that at Toy Fair (why would they, these are only new figures 😉 ), more and more never announced Black Series action figures are revealed. And it seems the “Gaming Greats” series which is exclusive to Gamestop is becoming a real thing this year. UK toy website “Toysarama” posted a photo of an upcoming Gamestop exclusive The Force Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper on their page (the product page still has the text for light side Revan)! The Shadow Stormtrooper follows on the heels of the Stormtrooper Commander. Could a Starkiller figure be next? But so far all the exclusives are merely repaints. Will you try to chase this figure? No word about availability yet, I would advise you to check the Gamestop website every day. Of course Hasbro could just tell us when these figures get released, but that would probably be too easy. 😉
There’s certainly something about Stormtroopers with black armor. This version here looks even cooler than the previous “Shadow Squadron” Stormtrooper we got several years ago. This will certainly by a very sought after figure! Good luck hunting! Thanks for the various alerts!

A quick search for “Star Wars Black Series Galaxy’s Edge” on eBay will show you several sellers already offering either single sets or all three sets of the Black Series Galaxy’s Edge exclusive figures. It may well be that eBay will be the only source for international collectors (and those who will not or cannot go to Disneyland) to get a hold of the all new Hondo, DJ-R3X, Commander Pyre, Mountain Trooper, a Mouse Droid and two all new Porgs. On top of that you will also get C-3PO with the new 4-LOM style elbow joints and a photo real The Last Jedi Rey, and she does look quite nice, the sculpt really comes alive with photoreal.

Price for a single set begins at $90, there are offers for all three sets beginning at $160, but another seller wants $370 for three sets in “near mint” condition.

Will you resort to eBay to get these figures? Or will you wait and hope Hasbro might eventually release the new figures in the mainline? Another question is if photo real The Last Jedi Rey will see an Archive release or if she will only be available in the exclusive Smuggler’s Run set. In my opinion it would be a wise choice by Hasbro to make only the packaging exclusive, but to offer the all new (and repainted) figures to all collectors worldwide eventually. But there is no official word yet.

And here some news that will certainly go over well… apparently the announcement even received loud boos at the presentation: there will be three exclusive Black Series sets for Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge theme park. Click through for the pictures!

Yes, Hondo will come to the Black Series, no, you will not be able to buy him anywhere

This Is Why International Collectors Hate Exclusives

Dear Hasbro, a simple question for you: when will you see to it that the myriad of exclusives released for the Black Series or TVC will see proper distribution at regular MSRP in Europe and other territories, so that etailers don’t resort to importing from Asia themselves?
Why must international collectors pay a dummy tax for these exclusives again and again? Do you think a Black Series figure is worth $47? The sad thing is, this figure will most likely still sell out. General Veers who was $59 also sold out.
Dear readers, is the figure up for pre-order in your country too? What do you have to pay for Bespin Leia? Let us know in the comments!

Black Series Bespin Leia

In other news: Bespin Leia is up for pre-order, yeah!
