Was at Toys R Us today and was flipping through the figures on the pegs and noticed something didn't look right on some of the Dak Ralter #25 figures. The cards with date stamp 41221 used a lighter bluish-gray paint on the chest box and hose and the red and green paint used on the chest box buttons was different as well.
Check out the comparison pic. The one on the right is the newer one I just found today. The store I visited had 3 of each, so its not a one off.
StarWars.com has posted a interesting and informative article on what Star Wars Rebels products we can expect to find from Hasbro, LEGO, JAKKS Pacific, and etc at your local retailers. Some of this stuff has already hit retail and I am sure we will see a flood of merchandise in the coming weeks.
Toys R Us is having a Buy one Get one 40% off sale on all Star Wars Action Figures, Playsets, Role Play, and Kids Furniture. This sale starts today and ends 9/27/14, per the sales Ad. Not a bad deal. Be sure to check your local stores as new toys have been showing up the past few weeks.
As you guys know I am a variation and error collector and I am constantly on the look out for them. Well today while at Walmart, I noticed a paint change on The Black Series #21 Luke Skywalker figure. Hasbro has changed the paint color on his Belt and Gun Holster. The first version (Date Stamp 40851) was painted a reddish brown color and the second version (Date Stamp 41601) is painted a dark brown. You can see the change by clicking on the image above for a side by side comparison photo, or visit the figure's page for some larger photos.
I believe we are the first to report this variation, so remember you heard it here first.
Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the 2014 Toys R Us Exclusive Star Wars Rebels Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Reveal set. The figures includes in this set is Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, and Holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi. The sculpts on these figures actually look pretty good in my opinion, but they do suffer from some sloppy paint applications. Kanan and Ezra both have 5 Points of Articulation, while the Holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi only has 1, which is his head. Enjoy the new HD Pics!
Just received a email from HasbroToyShop.com stating that they are having a "20% off most action figures" sale along with free shipping on orders over $50 (some exclusions apply). These offers are valid until 9/30/14. Not a bad deal.
Stopped by my local Toys R Us here in Texas and found the Star Wars Rebels - Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Reveal sets on the shelf. There is 6 sets per case with a retail price of $19.99 each. Happy Hunting!
The 2014 Star Wars Rebels: The Inquisitor's TIE Advance Prototype Vehicle has been added to our HD Photo Gallery this evening. Not really a fan of the reduced sized vehicles, but this one looks better then I expected. Enjoy the new Pics!
Today I have updated our HD Photo Gallery with the 2014 Rebels AT-DP (All Terrain Defense Pod) Vehicle. This includes boxed, loose, directions, and sticker sheet photos. Be sure to check out all the new pics!
A while back, Lucasfilm announced that the Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion DVD would be released at retail on 10/14/14, but according to Walmart they are releasing it on 10/03/14, which is the same day it will air on TV via the Disney XD channel.
I have personally seen the signage in stores and also Walmart.com states the release date of the DVD is on 10/3/14 as well. More then likely Walmart cut a deal with Lucasfilm to release this earlier then other retailers, or someone in Walmart's Marketing Department made a big mistake.
Was at the Mall today, so I stopped by the Disney Store and they had the Star Wars ''A New Hope'' and ''Return of the Jedi'' Figurine Playsets. The figures in these sets were about 3.5" to 4" tall but lacked any articulation. They looked ok, but nothing to get to excited about, but what do you expect for $12.95 each? These would make great cake toppers for any Star Wars Fan though. (kidding).
