So today is the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, so since I was out running errands here in Houston I did a toy run to Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, and GameStop, hoping to find some of the New 40th Anniversary Products stocked on the shelves and pegs, but there was nothing to be found except for a massive amount of 40th Anniversary TBS 6" Princess Leia Organa figures at GameStop and Target, due to them getting full cases of Leia as we reported a few weeks ago.
My local Walmart and Toys R Us stores had nothing except for a few Black Series Titanium Series 3.75" figures.
I sure hope that we see large amounts of the second wave of The 40th Anniversary TBS 6" figures hit retailers soon and they don't continue to get flooded with solid case packs of Leia and possibly Luke and Obi-Wan.Add a comment
StarWars.com has posted a interesting article on how they designed The New Black Series 6" Darth Vader, definitely worth checking out.
"When it came to making a certain Sith Lord’s 6-inch action figure for Star Wars‘ 40th anniversary, design director Steve Evans and Hasbro had a simple, if powerful, idea."
"We took the principle of, ‘Let’s do a Vader without any gimmicks,'” Evans says. “Let’s just do Vader."Add a comment
Today marks the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars and we would like to thank George Lucas for creating the Star Wars Universe and unleashing it on the public 40 years ago.
Also would like to thank all those in the Star Wars Community (Past, Present, and Future) that continue to make the Star Wars Universe the awesome thing it is.Add a comment

If you were one of the lucky ones to place a order for Walmart's Exclusive Black Series 3.75" Wave 8 figures on Walmart.com the other day when we first reported it, be sure to check your doorsteps today as orders are arriving already thanks to their new 2 day shipping (if you spent $35).
Just a FYI, you may notice Unit Labels on these, but they do peel off fairly easy without damaging the product box.Add a comment

Was at the Mall today celebrating Mother's Day with the wife and while there I stopped by GameStop and was shocked to see a 40th Anniversary Display filled with Princess Leia Organa figures.
There was a total of 16 figures, so I assumed they got full cases of just Leia, so I asked the manager and he confirmed that they did received 2 cases of these. Not sure if my other local stores received single figure cases as well, but its a possibility since they receive shipments from the same warehouse.
I sure hope this was a fluke though. I am all for single figure cases for hard to get figures, but if Hasbro ships out full cases of Luke, Leia, and Obi-Wan there will be figures warming the pegs for a very long time.Add a comment

For the variation hunters out there, I just noticed that Hasbro has made some changes to the card of GameStop's Exclusive The Black Series 40th Anniversary 6" R5-D4 figure. At a quick glance some noticeable changes are the card numbers on the back of the card and the Text on the front of the card has been changed from "Age • Edad • Idade 4+" to "AGE • EDAD • IDADE 4+". I just took a quick look, so there maybe more changes and if you spot them in our quick photos feel free to post in the comments.
• 1st version Card# 00007981. Upper and lower case Age text
• 2nd version Card# 00015201. Only upper case Age text.
I just found this updated card today at GameStop. You can view the popup picture above or view some larger photos on our Facebook Page.Add a comment

Hasbro and Litzky PR was kind enough to send us a Jedi Knight Lightsaber Bladebuilders kit today to celebrate Star Wars Day. We would like to thank them for sending this to us.Add a comment
Stopped by my local Texas Disney Store to check out their Star Wars Day Merchandise Display. They were only offering 4 new items which was The Elite Series Droid Gift pack, Stormtrooper Hemet with R2 Deco, T-Shirts, and a BB-8 Pin.
The Elite Series Droid Gift Pack is a straight up repack which was kind of a bummer, but don't worry you will like the Elite Series 2-Pack that is coming for the 40th Anniversary (Sorry Disney asked us not to release photos or character specifics yet).Add a comment
