Another variant found on Walmart's Pallet Display, this time its on The Black Series 6" 53: Captain Poe Dameron figure. His legs went from a glossy brown to a flat brown. The flat brown legs kind of looks like the color has changed slightly as well. I found multiple of the Poe figures with flat brown legs, all with date stamp 72301 at my local Walmart stores.
Not sure if all these variants are being found at other retailers or not, because my other local stores (Target and Toys R Us) have not restocked this wave for a month or so and just have the typical peg warmers.Add a comment
While looking at The Black Series 6" 45: Kylo Ren figures that arrived on Walmart's Pallet displays I noticed that the color of his legs was changed from a shiny black to a flat black. My local stores had 10 of these with the Flat Black legs. The Date Stamps were all 72281. Not sure if this is a permanent change or just a goof, since I cant find any Kylo figures around here with a newer date stamp over 72281.Add a comment
With the recent arrival of Walmart's Exclusive 3.75-Inch Black Series Pallet displays that were mainly filled with pegs warmers which have plagued their Action Figure Isles for over a year now, people have been sending in emails asking where is The Last Jedi Wave?
Walmart's current Holiday Kids Catalog does show this wave advertised, but the small print does say "Select 3.75", so no guarantee it will be The Last Jedi Wave found.
The officially release date of this wave (Printed on the case) was November 1st, but some stores received this wave early back in September. I personally have only seen this wave once at my local stores and that was a week or so after Force Friday II.
So why did Walmart just receive a bunch of older figures instead of The Last Jedi Wave? I am assuming they see the Holiday Season as a great opportunity to move old stock thats been sitting in their warehouse. Also remember this The Last Jedi wave is the tail-ender of this line, so its not known how many Hasbro will / have produced.
I am assuming another round of this wave will make it to local stores at some point. Also you can keep a eye on the product listings at Walmart.com, but they are currently out of stock. Keep checking the product pages and also check your local stores by clicking "see more stores" next to Pickup option.Add a comment

Today I have added The Last Jedi 3.75-Inch General Leia Organa figure to our HD Photo Gallery. Figure includes a Blaster Pistol and Removable Cloak.
Enjoy our large, clear, sharp HD Images that you wont find in other Archives.Add a comment
For those that like to collect paint errors, I just found one on The Black Series 6" 50: Elite Praetorian Guard figure. Instead of his shoulder armor being painted dark red to match the rest of his armor, it was painted a pinkish color instead.
At first I thought the one I found might just be a one off, but I was able to find a dozen or so at my local Walmarts with this paint error, most of them being found on their Star Wars Pallet display. I also found a transition figure with 1 red and 1 pink painted shoulder armor as well, which was a bit harder to find (only found 3).
• 1 Pink Shoulder Armor and 1 red (Date Stamp 72301)
• 2 Pink Shoulder Armor (Date Stamp 72441)
You can see the paint error above. The Photo was taken with my iPhone, which is a bit bright. The paint error is really noticable in hand, so you will know if you found one.Add a comment
As you noticed for the past year and a half I have pretty much taken a break from photography and have not updated our HD Photo Gallery as frequently as I have in our past years. Reason being we had 2 new additions to the family and between everyday life and the new additions my time was spread pretty thin, so had to take a break until things normalized again. In my down time though I did manage to create new photo filters and custom digital tools to improve our already impressive HD Photos which I have used for the first time with The Last Jedi 3.75-Inch DJ (Canto Bight) figure. Our new HD Photos will concentrate on quality over quantity. Most photos will be at least 2500 pixels in height, so make sure you take advantage of that by making sure your browser is displaying the full sized image.
Anyways added to our HD Photo Gallery today is The Last Jedi 3.75-Inch DJ (Canto Bight) figure. He includes a Removable Jacket and Blaster. Enjoy!Add a comment
Hasbro has updated The Black Series 6" 44: Rey (Jedi Training) figure with a bloody scratch / wound on her right arm. The updated figure is shipping with the Snoke Wave, which is now slowly arriving at Target Stores. The Date Stamp on the one I found was 72441.Add a comment

My local Texas Walmart received another Star Wars Pallet Display today, but this time it included Black Series 3.75" figures, 6" figures, and The Last Jedi 3.75" Deluxe sets. But before you get to excited The Black Series 3.75" figures were mainly previous peg warmers that can still be found down the action figure isle at some Walmarts. The Black Series 3.75" figures on the display were Ahsoka, Ackbar, Imperial Guard, Imperial Death Trooper, Jyn, and Lando. There were no sign of The Last Jedi figures Rose, Luke, First Order Stormtrooper Executioner, or Elite Praetorian Guard. As for The Black Series 6" figures, it was the Maz wave.
Kind of disappointing that Walmart is not receiving the newer waves of 3.75" and 6" Black Series figures.Add a comment
Walmart.com has updated their product page for their Exclusive Black Series 6" Kylo Ren Throne Room. It now states "This item is only sold at a walmart store", so not sure if it will make it online or not. Their tool to find these in stores is now live as well, just look for Pickup and click "see more stores" and enter your zip-code.
I contacted Walmart's PR and they said these should hit retail stores mid December, so hopefully that happens and we will see them next week some time.

Things kick into high gear on December 13. Your favorite stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn joins the fight for the Resistance and Captain Phasma steps on to the Battlefront for the First Order. They can be purchased with in-game Credits from that week. Whichever faction is victorious in completing the most challenges that week will net a reward as well: a special Crate of high-power upgrades for Finn or Captain Phasma.
New locations and vehicles will also arrive. On December 13, the cinematic content from Star Wars™: The Last Jedi continues with a new planetary map: Crait. The Starfighter Assault map of D'Qar will join as well, plus a new hero ship – Tallie Lintra's RZ-2 A-wing. Poe Dameron’s T-70 X-wing is also upgraded with a new ability inspired by Star Wars™: The Last Jedi .
Iden Versio returns. In Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II Resurrection, you’ll join Commander Iden Versio during the days of the First Order’s rise to power. These new chapters of Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II’s single-player story mode will be available December 13.
Your choice of faction will continue to matter. Throughout December, you'll see your chosen faction's progress reflected in-game, as you fight alongside allies from around the world to swing the tide of battle.Add a comment
ToysRus.com has started to charge (my card was charged yesterday) and send out emails to those that preorder the Forces of Destiny Platinum Edition Princess Leia figure set that we first reported about back on 10/24/17.
"We have received your order # 00000000-0 and our team is busy preparing it for delivery."
If you did place a preorder and your payment method has not been charged yet, you may want to check your order status and make sure there was no issues with your payment method. Some people that used PayPal have stated that their orders got cancelled.Add a comment

Stopped by my local Texas Target store today and found 8 of their Exclusive Black Series 6" Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) on Ahch-To Island figures on the shelf. Also readers have been sending in reports of finding these at their local stores as well from Coast to Coast.
This item keeps bouncing in and out of stock at Target.com as well. Also on the product page you can use the "find in store" tool to see if your locals stores have them in stock.
Happy Hunting!Add a comment
Target's Exclusive Black Series TBS 6" Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) on Ahch-To Island has begun to arrive at doorsteps from Target.com. I ordered mine when we first posted it being available in the early AM on December 1st and choose free shipping and received mine today. I ordered 2 and they arrived in a over-sized shipping box and were mint.
These look to be out of stock at the moment at Target.com, but they have already started to hit some local stores across the Nation. Still waiting on them at my local stores, but should hit the shelves this week.Add a comment
Barnes and Noble is currently having a 30% Off Black Series Products. The sale is good in stores and also online. I did some spot checking on their website and it looks like the discount applies to figures, Vehicles, Lightsabers and etc. Thanks to reader "Darth Rico" for the alert and photos!Add a comment
Yesterday we posted about Walmart receiving new Star Wars Product Pallet Displays for the Holiday Shopping Season, but my local store had broke down the display and stocked the shelves with the product, so couldn't get a picture of the Display. Well stopped at another local store this morning and they received 2 of these Displays (same products on both) so I snapped a picture for those interested in what it looks like.Add a comment
