My local Texas GameStop Stores are receiving earlier waves of The Black Series 6" Force Awakens figures again. Not sure if this is what Hasbro is sending them now or if the warehouse that supplies my local stores stumbled across some older stock and shipped it to them. In the mix of these figures I found some hard to find variants on The Black Series 6" First Order Stormtrooper & Snowtrooper that I was never able to obtain.
• #04 First Order Stormtrooper - (DS 60681) - Right Hip Box on Abdomen Armor (Boxes above Belt) has black stripe painted on it.
• #12 First Order Snowtrooper (DS 52371) - Black Neck, Holding Gun, Blaster Rifle has white handle.
I visited 3 stores today and each had about 2-4 of each of these and they were clearanced out for $12.97. I will get some comparison photos up soon.
In this installment of The Star Wars Show, ILM legend (and Rogue One executive producer) John Knoll sits for an interview, Pablo Hidalgo talks with Dave Filoni on the Rogue One set, we show new Marvel Star Wars covers, and more!
Hasbro has changed the entire paint scheme on the Ezra figure and his lightsaber, that is included in the Ezra Bridger's Speeder set. Both versions can be found only in The Force Awakens Toy Line boxes.
• 1st - White flesh, Dark Orange Jumpsuit, Dark Gray Saber Hilt. • 2nd - Tan Flesh, Bright Orange Jumpsuit, Silver Saber Hilt.
I was able to find both versions this week at both Target and Toys R Us stores. Also this set was repacked under the Rogue One Toy Line, and includes the second version of this figure. Happy Hunting!!
Stopped by a couple different retail stores this morning and found the Captain Phasma Vs. Finn (Jakku) 2-Packs at a few of my local Houston Walmart Stores today. This set is being shipped in the Wave 3 cases which includes:
• 3x Captain Phasma Vs. Finn (Jakku) • 3x Baze Malbus Vs. Imperial Stormtrooper
StarWars.com has revealed the Official Name for Episode VIII which is "The Last Jedi".

In this installment of Rebels Recon, we take a look at the Star Wars Rebels episode "Trials of the Darksaber," in which Sabine trains to use the ancient weapon -- but must also confront her past. Host Andi Gutierrez sits down to discuss the episode with the show's creators and stars, including Dave Filoni, Pablo Hidalgo, Tiya Sircar, Henry Gilroy, and more.
My local Walmarts have finally implemented their January 2017 Star Wars Planogram in the action figure isle, so I took a few photos to share if you have not seen this yet at your local stores. They actually reduced the amount of pegs for both 3.75" & 6" action figures down the main toy isle which is kind of a bummer.
Also they did add a end cap display in the action figure isle for their exclusive Black Series 3.75" figures as well.
In this special interview with Leland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo, and Matt Martin of the Lucasfilm Story Group, The Star Wars Show delves into the secrets of Rogue One, including Star Wars Rebels Easter eggs, production details, and much more.
Walmart's Exclusive TBS 3.75-Inch Imperial AT-ST Walker & Driver now have a active page at Walmart.com. They are offering local store pickup if its available in your area for $59.99. To check just enter your zip code.
Just a note, from the reports sent in to us late last night, this was also available to purchase and have shipped from Walmart.com, but now seems to be sold out. Its possible walmart.com will get more, so just keep a eye on their page if your in need of one.
For those that like to collect variants, there is a slight paint change to The Black Series 6" Captain Cassian Andor (EADU) #23 figure. My early versions of this figure has a Tan colored Gun Holster Strap around his thigh and a Reddish Brown Pouch on Belt. The later versions I am now finding have a Dark Brown Gun Holster Strap around his thigh and a lighter Brown Pouch on his Belt
• 1st (DS 61581) - Tan Gun Holster Strap & Reddish Brown Pouch on Belt.
• 2nd (DS 62301) - Dark Brown Gun Holster Strap & Lighter Brown Pouch on Belt.
Both versions are pretty easy to find still, since this figure is clogging the pegs at some retail stores. In the comparison photo, the earlier version is on the left and the later on the right.
"In this clip from the Star Wars Rebels episode ""Trials of the Darksaber,"" Kanan trains Sabine, new custodian of the legendary Darksaber, in the art of combat. But she has much to learn... Watch Star Wars Rebels every Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
