Review: BB Units [White/Purple] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

Hasbro went super-cheap on the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. It’s a disappointing development. We continue looking at these with the BB Units [White/Purple] set. (more….)

Review: BB Units [Blue/White] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

Hasbro went super-cheap on the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. What a huge disappointment. We begin looking at these with the BB Units [Blue/White] set. (more….)

There is a new line of Droid Factory action figures at TARGET via the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. How many waves will there be? Only time will tell. Let’s look at the Astromech Droid [Black/Orange – Rockets] figure. Why can’t Hasbro give these figures names? (more….)

Still Looking For The Carbonized Mandalorian?

If you’re still looking to get your hands on that beautiful looking Target Exclusive Black Series 6″ Mandalorian Carbonized, you might just be in luck. The past two mornings, Target.com had them in stock (about 9 a.m. EST Monday morning and around 7 a.m. this morning) so it might be a good idea to keep an eye out tomorrow. But that’s not all. It’s been showing up in Target stores on the West Coast the past couple of days as well, so if you’re out that way you should check your store’s inventory and if you’re on the East Coast, expect them to hopefully start showing up at any time. So it’s a good time to keep your eyes peeled! Good luck!Black Series Carbonized Mandalorian

Here’s the review! It’s a crying shame where The Vintage Collection is at today. The Special Action Figure Set (Cave Of Evil) isn’t the worst thing Hasbro’s done, but it’s like the manifestation of salt in the wound. See the sixteen-image reenactment of Luke’s Jedi training on Dagobah using the vintage Kenner Dagobah playset in our Photo Gallery! Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

So, Hasbro is into blind-boxed packaging now? Heaven help us. Is this the only way they can charge $40 for a 6″ figure now? We like the contents of this set, but not its price.

Instagrammer Toyfiend got the Target exclusive $40 Black Series Mystery Box early. And he was kind enough to post the unboxing video on YouTube and send us the link, so all the collectors can find out with him what’s actually inside the box. And I will spoil it right here. Inside are…

  • one beanie cap with a logo
  • one Marvel comic featuring Snowtroopers
  • one “First Order” metal pin
  • the Target exclusive First Order Elite Snowtrooper Black Series figure

Let’s say Toyfiend was less than thrilled when he found out which figure is inside the box… The First Order Elite Snowtrooper is probably one of the weakest new figures being released later this year, it’s basically the same old First Order Snowtrooper, but now with a cape. And you can get the First Order Snowtrooper for something like $5-$12 on ebay. Maybe Hasbro should have chosen another figure here.

You can watch the full 3 minute unboxing by clicking on the screenshot below! It’s hilarious. Let’s see how many of these unsold boxes will turn up at 5 Below, Ollie’s, Ross & co early next year… Thanks to Toyfiend for taking one for the team! 😉

We’ve received some slightly “unconfirmed” information that today TARGET gathered up the remaining The Vintage Collection and The Black Series [Phase III] exclusives to be sent to charity and/or discount chains. Many reported asking TARGET associated to go back to the stockroom to get the sale merchandise. There was a reason they were in the back as this was the plan. This is supposedly universal, so count yourselves fortunate if you found them on sale. Apparently, their stock status in-store has been changed to “Item Not Found.” TARGET, known for the decent handling of Hasbro Star Wars exclusive, totally let the ball drop on these items. Many explained that their stores NEVER had the Father’s Day displays while others never saw any products arrive at all. And now it’s like they never existed in TARGET now. Although, I am sure we can expect these exclusive to visit ROSS one day.
