For tonight’s Visual Guide update we are adding another Target exclusive Galaxy’s Edge figure to the line-up. Click below to check out the Mountain Trooper. You can also read all about him in our full review.
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!
Wow! You’re going to love the Mountain Trooper (is he a future film character?) and Commander Pyre from this set. And you’ll likely adore the MSE Droid too! Find out why the boringly-named The First Order Galaxy’s Edge exclusive multipack might be for you in our Research Droids Reviews today!

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.
