The fun begins on May 16 with a trip back to the original trilogy before jumping into new content for June inspired by the forthcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story™ film – but more on that later. First, let’s talk about what you’ll be able to play this month.
Revisit Jabba’s Palace:
What happens when you don’t pay a Hutt on time? You end up as an accent piece in his throne room… a lesson Han Solo learned the hard way. This month, fans of Star Wars Battlefront can revisit Jabba’s Palace in Star Wars Battlefront II as part of The Han Solo Season. Available in Blast, Hero Showdown, or Heroes vs. Villains, players will be able to iron out their differences in the twists and turns of Jabba’s abode.
Whats better then finding the new Black Series 6-Inch Tarkin Wave at your local Walmart? How about only paying .03 cents for each! Not sure if this is Nationwide or just select stores, but receiving reports today of people finding The Black Series 6-Inch figures (on the Solo Merchandise Pallet Display and on the shelves) and they are only ringing up at .03 cents per figure at the register.
If your in need of this wave you may want to check your local stores asap and see if they are .03 cents also.
Happy Hunting!!Add a comment
My local Texas Walmart stores have begun to receive Pallet Displays of Solo: A Star Wars Story Merchandise. Per the Toy Manager at the one store I visited on the way home today they had broken down the Pallet Display to fill the empty pegs in the Star Wars Toys Section and also created a end cap display with the product.
Products on the Display were:
• 2 cases of TBS 6-Inch Takin Wave
• 3 cases of 3.75-inch basic figures.
• 2 cases of 3.75-inch 2-packs.
• TBS Vader Electronic Helmet
• Nerf Solo Blasters
• Force Link 2.0 Millennium Falcon
A overseas Etailer has revealed and started to take preorders on a yet to be announced Black Series 6-Inch Stomrtrooper with Blast Accessories. The Stormtrooper has Battle Damage and includes a figure stand and blast effects which can be seen in the pop up photo above. You can also view a loose photo on the sellers site as well.
Hopefully we will hear from Hasbro soon to find out if this will be a Store Exclusive or not here in the states.Add a comment
For those that like to collect variants there is a paint variant on The Black Series 6-inch 65: Lando Calrissian figure. I actually found this variant back in April, but wanted to chase down a few more to make sure it was a variation and not a error.
• 1st version (Date Stamp 73541) - Lighter matte brownish-orange skin tone.
• 2nd version (Date Stamp 80161) - Darker brown skin tone.

Per request of some of our readers, we reached out to Disney to ask if ShopDisney.com or if your local Disney Stores would receive anymore of their Star Wars May the 4th Exclusives and as expected the current answer was no.
The most popular items this year were the Star Wars Return of the Jedi 35th Anniversary Edition Darth Vader Elite Series Die Cast Action Figure and the R2-D2 May the 4th Be With You Pin, which sold out within hours at shopDisney.com and at most local stores.
The prices are already pretty high on eBay for these. Asking / starting prices on the "R2-D2 May the 4th Be with You Pins" are between $40 - $100 and for the Elite Series Vader $40 - $125 currently.
Disney does not release production numbers, so not sure how many of these actually got made. Disney is all about making money, so you never know if we will see these again in different packaging in the future or not.Add a comment

Lots of people emailing me stating they missed out on some of Disney's May the 4th Exclusives yesterday and are asking if they will received any more of the Elite Series 35th Anniversary Die Cast Darth Vader figures and May the 4th R2-D2 Pins or is that it?
To be honest I am not to sure, but I did send out a email to Disney asking, but with it being a weekend, probably wont hear back till next week.
I also had a ruff time getting the Exclusives as well, just check out the story board picture (above) of what I had to go through to get the Disney Exclusives yesterday. Kidding we had a 501st and Rebel Legion Troop yesterday at our local Disney Store for Star Wars Day and thats me as Vader. No employees were intimidated or hurt lol.Add a comment
If you recall we posted a story a few days ago about Target's Exclusive Black Series's 6-Inch Chewbacca's Gun "Removable Tool" debacle. Well today Hasbro and their PR has gotten back to us stating that this is Not a Removable Tool and just a Handle that is suppose to be secured in place.
"Confirmed that it is not removable. Let me know if you have any questions"
So basically if you were able to remove the handle (without breaking if off) it was not meant to be. This article is not intended to prove anyone wrong, just putting the info out there since some people were damaging their toys thinking it could be removed.
Be sure to check out our HD Photos for this figure.Add a comment

Each Thursday this month your local Disney Stores will have "Fan Thursdays" starting at 7pm. At the May 24th "Fan Thursday" your local Stores will be handing out a Solo Movie Coin - 2018 Series Coin 1 (while supplies last). I was told you must attend the "Fan Thursday" activities to receive a coin. Don't expect to walk in and grab a coin and leave at 7pm, as they will hand them out at the end of the activities.
"Enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at Star Wars product, and a digital tour of the Millennium Falcon"
The coins are solid metal and are about 1.5 inches around and free to those that attend.Add a comment
There has been some confusion on when "Wookie Weekend" is? Some people assumed it was the weekend of April 13th for the Product launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Well this week our friends at Yakface.com pointed out that Toys R Us in Australia has advertised "Wookie Weekend" starting May 5th. To confirm the actual date of "Wookie Weekend" I contacted Disney as well and they stated May 5th. Disney Store's May advertisment also shows "Wookie Weekend" on May 5th.
Anyways thought I would point it out.Add a comment
Just received some info and a screenshot from my GameStop contact about their Exclusive (also Thinkgeek / Barnes'n'Noble / Disney) Black Series 6-Inch Clone Commander Wolffe figure that has just been entered into their system here in the USA.
First off not to sure about the release date which is 7/1/18. These have already hit stores in Canada and I have a feeling this date could have just been a estimated / Place Holder date and more then likely we will see him sooner.
Here is the SKU#168500. Price is $24.99 each. As of this post, Stores are not taking preorders.
