The supposed “Fan Channel-only” exclusive wave of The Vintage Collection repacked and updated with Photo Real figures including Luke Skywalker (Bespin) and See-Threepio (C-3PO), which already showed up at TARGET and weren’t supposed to, are now showing up at Walmart. We assume they weren’t supposed to show up at Walmart either. Expect them to get marked down to $5.00 per figure in a couple of weeks. Special thanks to JTA reader Chad R. for the report and image.

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.

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.

With encouraging new store reports of the latest The Vintage Collection figure found, I have to say it’s a bit depressing to check out the Walmart stores where I live. They’ve completely given up on Star Wars.

If you missed him the first time around, The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Yavin) is once again available for pre-order on Walmart.com. Perhaps this release will have the updated name pill. Thanks to JTA reader Biggs for the tip!

You can still grab Jabba’s Palace online if it’s available near you. It shows that it is not available for delivery, but is available for pick-up. Results may be mixed on whether or not it is available to ‘Add to Cart’ based on your zip code, so make sure to try different zip codes to cover all the Walmart stores in your area!

Triple Force Friday Comes Early

Hasbro’s great retail partner Walmart seems to live in a different time zone here and there. The following story is not explicable any other way, but let me quote an email by Adam U. who contacted us earlier today verbatim:

I was at the Niagara Falls Walmart and the Star Wars display was out and all vintage and black series were gone. The girl working in toys told me they are just printing stickers for them so they scan. She even did for me on the gold sets, but I left it. This is absurd. The fun is just being sucked out of the hobby.

One can only hope that Walmart will also have the Triple Force Friday toys in the regular toy aisle, or else the little stock they have will be gone in minutes come October 4th.
Apart from the question why this particular Walmart would put out the TFF endcap more than a week before Triple Force Friday… how can they leave the endcap like that, looking like a total mess?

Update: we have received another report from Mike O. that one of the Walmarts in the Rochester area also has the TFF endcap out in the open, and as expected all the good stuff is already gone. The only things left are lightsabers and Galaxy of Adventure toys. And Tim M. tells us that his Walmart already has a few LEGO Triple Force Friday sets on shelves, among them the new Millennium Falcon and the Pasaana Speeder Chase set. Click through for some photographic evidence!

Check Out This Rise Of Skywalker Walmart Endcap!

Jeff M. was with his son at a Walmart in Camden, Delaware and look what he has found! A Rise of Skywalker Endcap. You can also see the brand new “Scream Saber” on display which not only has prerecorded lightsaber sounds, but lets you record your own sounds. Walmart wouldn’t sell the toys, they won’t even let Jeff or his son hold them. Why break the street date then and display these toys? Another questions is if this Endcap will be all there is for the movie at Walmart. Absent here are some of the Galaxy of Adventure toys, so you will probably also find Star Wars toys in the toy aisle. Also, it seems as if the Black Series First Edition boxes may be all you will get when you buy a figure on Triple Force Friday. Someone who prefers the standard box may have to wait a bit until they are available. Thanks to Jeff for sending us the photo!

Stop Being A Man-Baby! It's For Kids!

Walmart polled kids this year to get an idea of what some of their favorite toys and brands are and what Wlamart should have IN STOCK for America’s Best Toy Shop. As you know, Walmart has grand plans to take over the world as the #1 toy shop. See if you can find what intellectual property and Hasbro brand DID NOT make the list. It’s no wonder so many locations have no Star Wars section left. Click the image below for the winners of the poll (a pdf document), but you can also read more HERE.

Toy Run Tuesday #6 - Sno Cones

I’m going through the purchasing process for a new home, so I am trying to save every penny for that.

Toy Run Tuesday #1 - First Official TRT!

Last week I introduced a new weekly segment called Toy Run Tuesdays. We’ll call it TRT for short (if abbreviations are your thing). Today, the first TRT has arrived! Be sure to post photos in the comments. Check out the introductory article if you want to get a better picture of what we’re looking for, and the purpose behind TRT (hint: you can still participate if you didn’t go to a brick & mortar store). Hop on over to the comment section and show us what you’ve been up to collecting-wise!

My very first attempt to airbrush anything… I need some practice…

The End Result of Poor Distribution: Walmart Edition

Yesterday I went to a liquidation store because I knew they had star wars figures. I just didn’t realize how many figures they had… There were cases upon cases full of Cassian and Jyn, and the remaining third of the stack was split between Death Troopers, Scarif Troopers, Lando, and Ackbar. Click through for more…

Galaxy Of Adventures Found On Clearance At Walmart

JTA reader MiketheRatGuy sends us proof that his local Walmart has put the Galaxy Of Adventures figures on clearance for $3.00. We don’t know how widespread this is, but it could show the beginnings of a company-wide clearance. It’s impossible for this line to be a success. Collectors, the only people buying Star Wars figures in the greatest numbers, want super-articulated action figures.

Walmart The Vintage Collection TIE Fighter for $1!!

Wow, what a find…. Thanks to Chris from Arizona for sending this report. Some people have all the luck! As of now, most stores near me are still showing $19. Who knows if they’ll go down before they sell out at that price?
