Is there additional stock of the Retro Collection The Empire Strikes Back figures on the way? We’re hearing from our sources the answer is “yes.” What we don’t know is if this new production run of figures is for the US market, or internationally. If history repeats itself, it’s possible the Fan Channel will pick up this exclusive line. Wouldn’t that be nice? Stay tuned for more information.

We’re not sure if this is a single store markdown or not. And we have NO IDEA how widespread this is. But we have evidence that the Retro Collection is on clearance at this Walmart location for 50% off. Many (most?) of us haven’t even seen this collection of figures enter their brick and mortar locations, let alone on sale. It’s not even the end of May, and this latest find makes us believe that Walmart is over the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back already. Thanks to JTA reader Thomas H. for the report and image.

JTA reader Dan D. waited on pins and needles for his Retro Collection Luke Skywalker (Bespin) figure to arrive unharmed from Walmart. With all of the terrible shipping reports, he had good reason to worry. Click the image below to see what he received. (more….)

This is the funniest thing you’ll see on the internet today. Guaranteed. Thank you From 4-LOM To Zuckuss for the laugh, but we’re not laughing at your pain.

Some of those who pre-ordered the Retro Collection The Empire Strikes Back figures at Walmart online are getting shipping notices as we speak, although a few of the shipping details explain the package is delayed. Who knows what’s happening at this point, but let us know how your orders go

As we exclusively reported several weeks ago, those who pre-ordered the Retro Collection The Empire Strikes Back figures at Walmart online will indeed receive delayed shipments. Originally believed to ship with a new release date of May 20th (instead of May 4th), some are now receiving notices pushing out the shipping dates to June 19th. (And it may be later for others too.)

UPDATE: Some are receiving cancellation notices too!

Retro Collection Lando Calrissian Weapon Update!

In our review of the Retro Collection Lando Calrissian figure today, we mentioned that Hasbro cast the Bespin blaster in “black” plastic for the first time for this modern release. But thanks to the Imperial Gunnery Forum, we’ve just learned that a rare Lily Ledy version of Han Solo (In Trench Coat) comes with a “black” Bespin blaster. The more you know…. (Please leave any comments about this or the figure on our review page. Thank you!)

Those of you who ordered the Retro Collection online through Walmart’s website will have to wait “an unknown amount of time” before you see your orders fulfilled. JTA has learned that stock has been delayed because of the pandemic, and it will take some time before Walmart online can fill them. Please note, Retro Collection figures arriving in filled displays at some Walmart stores are part of a separate inventory and not part of the online stock units. It’s suggested to leave your orders in their current pre-ordered status as the expectation remains that they will eventually be filled and shipped out to collectors. Currently, there is no impact on The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary 6″ figures. And the effect on new The Vintage Collection figures remains unknown. We will continue to follow this developing story, and provide updates as they become available. In the meantime, check out the complete wave of The Empire Strikes Back figures RIGHT HERE.
