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
Just a reminder that Columbia Sportswear's Echo Base Jacket Collection goes on sale tonight (12/8/17) at 12:01am EST at Columbia.com and at Columbia branded retail locations

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
Just a reminder for those that collect the Disney's Elite Series Die Cast figures that Supreme Leader Snoke will hit your local stores today (12/5) and is now available at shopDisney.com. Price is $26.95 each.
This is the last of the announced Elite Series Die-Cast figures for this year.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

As we stated last week, Walmart stores are suppose to start to receive their new Exclusive Funko POP Star Wars Move Moments this week and sure enough my local Texas store just received them today.
There are a total of 4 new sets which are:
• Cantina Faceoff
• Death Star Duel
• Escape Pod Landing
• Trash Compactor Escape
My local store had a full end cap of them located in the main isle by the Home Department. I don't typically buy these myself, but I really wanted the Death Star Duel.

Walmart has been receiving a new Star Wars Shipper just in time for the Holiday Shopping Season this week. On the shipper is 12" figures, The Black Series 6" Maz Wave, 3.75" figures Orange Wave 1, 3.75" figures Teal Wave 2 and 3.75" Deluxe.
The Toy Manager at my local store stated they didn't have the room for the shipper, so they just broke it down this morning and used the product to fill the empty pegs and shelves.
Really wish the shipper included newer product like The Black Series 6" Snoke wave.Add a comment
Just received the Disney's Exclusive Elite Series Captain Phasma Die-cast figure today and I am happy to say Disney has made some changes to it for the better. I have not opened this figure up yet, but it seems that Disney retooled parts of her short stubby legs, which now look thinner and longer and the armor paint application now actually looks like chrome instead of just flat silver paint.
I took a quick side-by-side picture which you can view above.Add a comment
Amazon recently restocked The Black Series 6" 32: Obi-Wan Kenobi figure, so out of curiosity I bought one to see if there was any changes to this figure since I originally bought one a while back. Right off the bat I noticed that the cloaks were different colors and the paint app on his inner shirt changed a bit also. If I recall I also do believe the second version is what ended getting packed on The 40th Anniversary cards as well, but will have to dig one up and double check.
• 1st version (Date Stamp 62701) Flat brown painted shirt and brown cloth Cloak
• 2nd version (Date Stamp 62851) Gloss brown painted shirt and reddish-brown cloth Cloak.
You can click on the side by side pop-up comparison picture above (or open the picture in a new window to view the full size picture).
If you want to try for the second version (not guaranteed), Amazon still has them in stock for $17.01, but make sure you buy the one shipped and sold by Amazon and not a 3rd party seller. You will have to click on the link that shows all sellers and scroll down to Amazon to purchase.Add a comment
