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
Now that The Black Series 6" Wave 13 figures have been hitting my local Texas stores in large numbers, I noticed that the 53: Captain Poe Dameron figure has had some paint changes on his head. The most noticeable is the heavier beard and the slight hair color change on top of his head. At first just thought it was sloppy paint apps, but just to make sure I went through 30+ of these figures and the trend was that early date stamp figures look like the Hasbro prototype photos with the light beard and darker hair on his head, while the later date stamps have heavy beards and lighter brown hair on his head.
• 1st version (date stamp 71921) - Light beard and dark hair.
• 2nd version (date stamp 72441) - Heavy beard and lighter hair.
Just a reminder for those that collect the Disney's Elite Series Die Cast figures that Captain Phasma will hit your local stores tomorrow (11/28) and is now available at ShopDisney.com. Price is $26.95 each.
It looks like this figure maybe a direct repack of The Force Awakens Phasma, just in new packaging, but will have to confirm when I pick her up this week.Add a comment
While shopping at Walmart today I noticed a advertisement for their Exclusive Funko POP Star Wars Movie Moments sets. I typically don't cover or collect Funko POPs, but there are a couple new sets that peaked my interests. Unfortunately none of my local Stores have them in stock, but they are expecting them to arrive next week. Prices on these sets are $24.82 each.
These sets are also listed on Walmart.com, but the only set in stock as of this post is the Han Solo and Greedo Cantina Set.Add a comment
Target's Exclusive Star Wars: Return of The Jedi Battle 3-Pack has been making it to local stores this week. Found about 24 of these sets at my local Texas Stores today. Also readers have been sending in reports of finding them from the East to the West Coast.
These are also still available at Target.com as well if you in need of one.Add a comment
Back on 9/2/17 we reported on finding The Black Series 6" 30: Princess Leia Organa updated Head Variant at Toys R Us and since then I have never found another at retail. After posting the find back in September, people have been emailing me till this day asking where to find this variant.
Well a few days ago Amazon listed that they once again had this figure in stock at a price of $11.14 (now $16.50), so I took a chance and bought a couple to see what version would show up and it was the newer head variant. I am assuming the new stock they received are all the newer head variant (buy at your own risk).
So if you wanted one of these and want to take a chance, purchase one shipped and sold by Amazon. You will have to click on the "other sellers" list to find "Amazon" as the seller with a current price of $16.50.
Another new Teaser released today. Can't wait to see the entire film!Add a comment
We would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Please be safe and have a great time with your family and friends.Add a comment

If your having trouble tracking down the Toys R Us Exclusive Black Series 6" Rey (Jedi Training) on Crait figure at your local stores, ToyRus.com is once again taking preorders. Price is $34.99 but if you order now its 15% off bringing it down to $29.74 with a ship date of 11/22.
We have received lots of reports (also I have visually confirmed at my local stores) that its challenging to find these mint in box at local stores due to employees slashing the tops of the boxes with box cutters when opening the cases, so ordering them online might increase your chances on getting one mint, just a suggestion.Add a comment
