Welcome to another one of our JTA Presents: Evolutions features! Let’s check out how close or far we are from having an ideal Hasbro 3.75″ Greedo action figure. Have we arrived at definitive status yet? Weigh in and let us know what conclusion you’ll come to by clicking through and adding your two cents in the comments!
How is Walmart going to be the new “Toys R Us” when they can’t even get out a single Star Wars exclusive from Hasbro? Well, maybe they won’t be able to achieve this business goal. Or maybe something will drastically change with their protocols so it can become a possibility. We have learned something shocking about one of Walmart’s exclusives and received an update on another. The answer for a third exclusive is still in limbo, however. (more….)
The Walmart Exclusive Funko Pop Movie Moment Darth Vader Vs Obi-Wan is now in stock at Walmart.com. They also have the X-Wing Pilot Set marked down to $19.99. We’ll keep you posted when the rest of the Movie Moments come in stock.
If you still need the Walmart Exclusive 40th Anniversary Funko Pop Bespin 3-pack and Ewok 3-pack in stock they’re on sale for $16.99. Two great sets, especially if you’re looking for all the 40th Anniversary sets at a good price.
As of this post, all of The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ super-articulated are back in stock. If you’re still missing them, now is the chance to grab Tusken Raider, Ponda Baba, Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) and Sandtrooper
For those of you keeping track, it looks like the last batch of the Ponda Baba/Proto Fett wave that just showed up in stock is already prepping to ship thanks to this image from JTA reader and friend Mark M. What is INTERESTING however is that for the first time ever (for Mark), these items are shipping out of a California (CA) warehouse (he lives in Texas). Now, maybe that in and of itself isn’t peculiar and it’s not that strange that these are shipping from another warehouse, but could it be that more have just arrived from China and the first fulfillment center is in CA which is why his order is being shipped form there? Thoughts? I ask because could be there be hope that these will have wider availability (at least online) since there hasn’t been one store report of these yet?
UPDATE : All back in stock as of 9:34 PM
Remember this “rumor” report? (Click HERE to see it.) This is what we were alluding to in that post. The previously exclusive Walmart The Black Series [Phase III] 3.75″ figures can now be ordered by mainstream retailers. Diamond Distribution is now soliciting orders for Admiral Ackbar, Ahsoka Tano, Emperor’s Royal Guard, Lando Calrissian and Imperial Death Trooper and Jyn Erso for an August 31st availability date. Not available to order: Scarif Stormtrooper (SMH). Also note nothing is listed from the Ponda Baba wave either. Walmart has lost exclusivity to this line and it’s now a mainstream item. “Rumor” also has it that there will be one more wave of boxed figures on or around Force Friday II, but you never know if Hasbro will save them for The Vintage Collection instead. We’ll have to wait and see! Most importantly, take note of the MSRP. It’s a pretty “good” indicator of what to expect next year for another very important collection.
As of the time of this post, the Emperor’s Royal Guard is IN STOCK for $10.83!
UPDATE: It’s history – keep checking throughout the day! These have been popping in and out of stock!
They sell out in moments when they go in stock at Walmart online. HURRY if you still need them or want them. eBayer tunghori lists the Walmart exclusives latest wave of super-articulated 3.75″ Star Wars figures again! Special thanks to JTA reader Craig P. for the alert!
