For those that collect the Disney Exclusive Elite Series Die Cast Action figures, I was just surfing DisneyStore.com and noticed that the last wave of Elite Series Die Cast Figures that were released a few weeks back are now on sale for only $10 as of this post. This is the first time I have seen them drop below the MSRP of $26.95 each.
The last wave of figures were: • Squad Leader Stormtrooper • Finn with LIghtsaber • Riot Gear Stormtrooper
Also the older figures are on sale from $5.99 to $10 which includes Boba Fett, Vader, and etc. I can't confirm or not if these prices are reflected at local Disney Stores as well because its 3:30am in the morning, but I will try and find out tomorrow.
My inbox has been blowing up because it seems that some other sites participating in Hasbro's Vintage Collection 3.75” Fans’ Choice Vote have posted incorrect information for some reason and is causing some confusion among some of our readers, and has also caused Hasbro's PR to send out another email to the Press today.
So here are the facts as we posted yesterday:
• Your vote is being casted for a 3.75" figure that will be produced for The Vintage Collection Line.
• Your votes have nothing to do with 6" Figures or The Black Series Line.
Hasbro's PR has sent us some new Black Series 6" Exclusive and Basic figure Press Photos along with some info on how to obtain them. You can read the info below and check out the photos on our Facebook Page.

Looks like Steve Evans the Design Director for Star Wars toys at Hasbro has revealed The Black Series 6" Grand Admiral Thrawn via his Instagram Page. Hopefully Hasbro's PR will send out some info and images to us soon.
Hasbro's PR Firm has sent us info and photos for the new Star Wars Forces of Destiny Adventure Figures. The Press Release is below and the images can be found on our Facebook Page.
Press Release: We're beyond excited to share Disney and Lucasfilm have collaborated with Hasbro to create a robust line of toys and role play items inspired by the Star Wars Forces of Destiny animated content announced today, and the toy line will launch on August 1 at mass retailers around the world and HasbroToyShop.com.
The line includes new 11-inch "Adventure Figures" depicting characters including Rey, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, plus loveable sidekicks and epic villains like BB-8, Chewbacca and many more. These true to form Adventure Figures bridge the gap between traditional action figures and dolls, opening up a new play experience for Star Wars fans of all ages and genders. Each individually designed figure features dynamic action and multiple points of articulation to help recreate the characters' adventures and heroic moments with different poses.
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.
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.
Yahoo got a Exclusive Sneak Peek of Hasbro's The Black Series 6" Deluxe Luke Skywalker and Landspeeder Set. Price will be $59.99 with a release date of this Fall. For more photos and info click on through to Yahoo.
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!
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.
