Disney and Lucasfilm Celebrate Iconic Heroes from a Galaxy Far, Far Away…with Star Wars Forces of Destiny
Glendale, Calif. (April 12, 2017 – 9:00PM PST) – Disney and Lucasfilm today announced Star Wars Forces of Destiny, a new initiative celebrating the inspiring stories of iconic heroes from across the Star Wars universe. An original series of animated shorts (each 2-3 minutes in length) will explore exciting, all new adventures of key characters including Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Ahsoka Tano and others, ahead of books and a TV special later in the year. The stories will also be supported by a line of toys from Hasbro, including new 'Adventure Figures' – a fusion between traditional dolls and action figures, creating a whole new way to play Star Wars.Add a comment
Got a call from my local Texas GameStop today, letting me know that The Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary R5-D4 figures I preordered arrived today and is ready to pick up. While picking them up I asked if they received a lot of these figures to sell and he said no, they only received 2 figures which were shipped in a 5 foot tall 40th Anniversary Cardboard Display which also included TBS 3.75" Die-Cast Figures & Vader 6" Legacy Pack as well. (Display was still in the back room, so couldn't take a photo of it)
Out of curiosity, I asked him if he could check stock at some other store locations, so he did and he stated that it looks like all the stores in this Region only received 2 figures for this first shipment. Now I am not sure if this is Nationwide or not, but it looks like if you were not the first or second person to preorder these in store, you may have to wait for a future shipment.
Also GameStop.com has taken down preorders for this figure at the moment, but the "Pick up in store" option is now live, so you can try and track one down by putting in your zip code.Add a comment

Added to our HD Photo Gallery tonight is The Black Series 6" Imperial AT-ACT Driver which is a Target Exclusive. This figure is pretty much just another repaint, but still looks great and has plenty of articulation and includes a Blaster Rifle. If your in need of this figure be sure to check your local Target stores as he has been hitting the pegs for the past few weeks now with a retail price of $19.99 each.
Please remember our HD Photos are not your typical archive photos, as they are very Large, Clear, and Sharp. We definitely go for quality over quantity. Be sure to check them out!Add a comment
Just noticed that Amazon has the Star Wars Rogue One Rapid Fire Imperial AT-ACT on sale for $159.98 (MSRP $299.99) which is almost 50% off.
While not the $89 - $150 prices we seen around Christmas, its still not a bad deal if your looking for one. This is shipped and sold by Amazon.Add a comment
We have been receiving lots of reports this week on people finding The Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary Legacy Packs at their local Target stores from Coast to Coast.
If you don't see this set in the Toy Department be sure to check the Electronics Department or look for the small Star Wars Cardboard Display as people have found them in all 3 areas. Another option if you don't see them on the floor is to ask a employee to check back stock on DPCI# 087-06-7986.Add a comment
In this installment of The Star Wars Show, we talk to Lucasfilm's Doug Chiang about designing Darth Vader's castle in Rogue One, speak with Kansas City Chiefs WR Chris Conley about his love of Star Wars, and more!Add a comment
For the variation hunters out there, Hasbro has changed Chirrut Imwe's Lightbow from a bronze color to a dark charcoal in efforts to make it look more screen accurate I guess.
• 1st release (DS 63131) Lightbow is a bronze color.
• 2nd release (DS 63481) Lightbow is a dark charcoal color.
I found the second version at Target the other day. Be sure to check out the HD Photos of the change on the figure's page.Add a comment
Get a sneak peek at what's to come in the second season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures!
At the end of the first season, the Freemaker family found a new home with the rebel fleet. Their new circumstances bring them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC, a terrifying hunter droid who continually modifies himself to fit any occasion. In response to these threats, Rowan’s powers grow and strengthen until he has a vision of a sleek, invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire in its tracks - the Arrowhead. The catch is, the Arrowhead is a ship only Rowan can build. Once again, it’s up to the youngest Freemaker to save the galaxy.
LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures' new season will premiere this summer on Disney XD!Add a comment
Over the weekend I found a variation on The Black Series - 6" - 37: Baze Malbus figure. Hasbro has decided to start painting the flesh tone on his face and hands giving him a darker color, which looks much better in my opinion.
• 1st release (DS 63131) Fleshtone color mixed in plastic on face and hands.
• 2nd release (DS 63481) Fleshtone color is now painted on face and hands.
I have added the variations to the figure's page for your viewing pleasure. Remember you heard it here first.Add a comment
My local Texas Target Store has received The Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary Legacy Packs (DPCI# 087-06-7986) & Single Carded Figures (DPCI# 087-06-7985) on their truck today. They had to pull them from the stockroom because per the employee there is no set date for them on the floor as of yet.
The sell date on the Legacy Packs is 4/1/17 and on the single figures 3/1/17. I picked up 2 Legacy Packs ($39.99 each) and 1 set of single figures ($19.99 each). Above is a picture of the cases they are shipping in, which I snagged for storage.Add a comment
Target.com now has their Exclusive Black Series 6" Imperial AT-ACT Driver in stock and ready to ship at $19.99 each.
Just a note, Target mislabeled this figure on their website, they are calling him a "AT-AT Driver", but if you check the Item description it has the correct DPCI# 087-06-1115 which is for the Imperial AT-ACT Driver. Get them while you can!Add a comment
DisneyStore.com has listed 3 new Exclusive Elite Series Die Cast Action Figures which are:
These figures are pretty much slight repaints of existing figures packaged with different accessories. Also the boxes have a new look to them as well.. Price is $26.95 each. I also believe these should be available at your local Disney Stores as we speak, but you may want to call your local stores to confirm.Add a comment
My local Texas Targets wheeled out a new display this morning in the Electronics Department that contained The Black Series 6" Chirrut and Baze figures along with all the Black Series 6" Rogue One Wave 1 figures (Newer variants we reported about a month ago). This 3-sided display also contained Role Play items, 3.75" Basic figures, and the Jedha Revolt 4-pack.Add a comment
Just a FYI, if you don't want to order the GameStop Exclusive Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary R5-D4 online and pay shipping, you can go down to your local GameStop Store and place a preorder to pick it up in store on 4/15/17. All that is required is a $5 deposit.Add a comment
Target has finally begun to clearance out The Black Series 6" figures that fell under their DPCI# 087-06-8009 which is mainly Rogue One Wave 1 figures. These figures have been clogging the pegs for months now, so hopefully stores will clear out their stockrooms and remove these figures from the pegs and make room for the newer releases.
Newer waves of Figures (like Darth Revan) that use DPCI 087-06-3953 are still the normal price of $19.99.Add a comment
Was just surfing BestBuy.com and found a listing for the Star Wars 40th Anniversary 6" Black Series Darth Vader Legacy Pack. They are not in stock online, but you can check your local stores for stock by typing in your zip code. Price is $39.99.
Have a feeling they will receive the single carded 40th Anniversary 6" Black Series figures in stores as well, since they just started to carry The Black Series 6" figures as we reported earlier in the week. Happy Hunting!Add a comment
