Hasbro's PR team kindly sent along a press release with many new and some neewish exclusives! More are coming this fall, but for now, here's a look at what you can expect on (or around) Friday, September 30. None of the 3 3/4-inch figure exclusives are listed here, but 6-inch, prop replicas, Nerf guns, and more await you after the jump.
If you love droids - and let's be honest, if you don't, we can't be friends - you'll be excited and/or irritated to know that another in an ongoing series of cute Disney exclusive carded droids is up for grabs. Only the second new one this year, R2-B00 is up for grabs at or near Disneyland now - check the stores in that general area and this green, purple, orange, and black droid can be yours for about $12.95. For those keeping track - so far - as of right now - no new parts in the make-your-own-droid bins have surfaced, saving you all from mild heart attacks for a litle longer.
The only new Leia from the new movie, Princess Leia Organa was a Walmart exclusive that, despite very strange eyebrows, is otherwise not bad. Cloth bits, a decent sculpt, and better articulation than her outfit can make use of, if/when you find her she's the only game in town. Hopefully we'll see a General Resistance/Vest version next. Read on!
The First Order Stormtrooper was a pain to find last year when this 3 3/4-inch boxed figure debuted as a Walmart exclusive. It still is, but it was back then, too. He's got more joints and less gear than the other 3 3/4-inch releases, so is he worth it? Read on!
You might be seeing Rey from Walmart's exclusive The Black Series assortment as enough of the 3 3/4-inch figures shipped that she sat around in some areas. Of course now that people are looking again, she'll probably go away pretty fast. Should you go hunting? Read on!
We're back! Planes, and all. Today it's Finn (The Black Series 3 3/4-Inch), which is an awesome figure that looks a lot like the regular version you probably saw a bunch of already. Is it worth the upgrade? Yeeeeeahhhhhhh. Shell out, dudes. Read on!
In what may be - but we hope isn't - his final appearance, we saw a new outfit for Admiral Ackbar which in turn inspired this new figure with an opening mouth! He also has a new blaster, his trademark toy baton being sadly absent. Want to see more? Read on!
Friends, foes, and frenemies are back from pretty much everybody this month as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story gives you a reason to go to the toy store over lunch once again. Because I am nothing if not tired and lazy, I am going to copy and paste Hasbro's press release below with new toy images of MicroMachines, 3 3/4-inch action figures, new NERF blasters, and some other stuff. Our sponsors are taking advance orders on 3 items, so here's a look at what you can expect later - with a few prices - after the jump.
Hey, it's old man Captain Rex! He's got a beard, less hair, and a little more mass than when he was fighting in the Clone Wars. Oh, and he's got twin pistols, a helmet, and for some reason a rocket-launching spear. Read on!
New Black Series - repacks! According to many sources, and Robot Kingdom (a very popular exporter of Transformers overseas) there are 4 more The Black Series 3 3/4-inch action figures coming out as future Walmart exclusives. You may already own them, but they’re good ones if you missed them. While Hasbro has not confirmed this, it’s a slow news week so we’re going to assume this is all fact and tell you about these previous releases. Read on for more pictures, links to reviews of the original figures, and a list of who you can expect to find in stores in the next couple of months.
At this time, there are no Rogue One or The Force Awakens figures in these waves known to be coming. This continues the previous The Black Series line's proud tradition of minimizing freshness in the 3 3/4-inch range.
