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?

The Walmart exclusive TVC Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure has been found at a brick and mortar store in Virginia. I suppose it’s possible these could be returns from online, but it’s aesthetically pleasing to see them hanging from the shelves to cover up so much junk behind it. Special thanks to JTA reader Thomas N. for the image and news!

Walmart online has also added new figures to its pages, including the two featured below.

It Felt Like It Went So Smoothly Too; Walmart Is A Disaster

The Walmart Exclusive The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) process seemed like things had changed for the giant retailer, but now things are turning for the worse, and orders can’t be fulfilled (despite order statuses claiming it will arrive today). It was too good to be true we suppose. WARNING: salty language exists on this thread, but if you’re interested to see what a fellow collector experienced, check out this thread at Rebelscum Special thanks to JTA reader Rich K. for the alert. And if you have better luck, let us know!

Walmart Begins Markdowns for The Vintage Collection

While Brickseek isn’t always reliable when it comes to inventory quantities, it’s usually pretty good in letting you know the price of an item in store (if it’s there at all…). It looks like Walmart has begun marking down Vintage Collection figures. Most stores in my area are $9.87. Let us know if you find figures at a lower price point in the comments!

46 figures… and at least 10 are Snoke. Any bets on how long it will take to clear the pegs?

We’ve had tons of reports over the past few days of the previously MIA Stormtrooper (Mimban) The Vintage Collection figure showing up in large quantities at Walmarts. Viewers have reported from Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Kansas, and New York, to name a few. If you have been waiting for this to drop on shelves, now is the time to start hunting. Thanks for all the viewers who wrote in, and chime in in the comments to post your own finds to help others out.

Found! Galaxy Of Adventures Wave 2 Hits Walmart!

JTA reader and friend “Logan” found the Galaxy Of Adventures wave 2 at his local Walmart. Admittedly, these figures look pretty neat in the colorful packaging. Too bad they’re all repacked figures. Well, the Stormtrooper isn’t. It looks like the Solo Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure painted all white with the Rogue One helmet.

Walmart: Hasbro's "GREAT" Retail Partner!

Pop Quiz! The image below represents what approximate date? A. October 2018. B. November 2018. C. December 2018. D. It doesn’t matter. This is how the section always looks and I can’t remember the last time I could purchase something from it that remotely interested me. SPOILER: The answer is D. In all honesty, save for some unwanted TVC products like the Imperial TIE Fighter and the repacks, I don’t think this section has changed since the Solo: A Star Wars Story product launch.
