Surprise Walmart Black Friday Exclusive - ROTJ Titan Hero Series Speederbike, $10

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 25, 2016

3208 Walmart stores are often a frustrating and exciting source of exclusives and bundles in November.  This year, the "we were told this was canceled" Rogue One Star Wars Titan Hero Series vehicle assortment arrived at Walmart in aisle dumps along with Poe/Speederbike, Stormtrooper/Assault Walker, and some Marvel Mask/Figure 2-packs.  At $10 a whack they're spectacular values for kids and something collectors in 20 years - when Titan Hero Series becomes the Mego of this generation of children - cost more than a trip to the movies for your family.  But hey, you can go get these now if you're lucky. 

The lines aren't necessarily terrible in all locations, and if you're one of the many toy vampires out there the after hours shopping trip will do you more good than refreshing your social media feeds and postponing sleep another hour or three.

New Planet-Themes Star Wars Hot Wheels Exclusives Land at Walmart

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, October 4, 2016

Hot Wheels! Walmart in the USA has a new exclusive assortment of cars for $0.97 a pop.  This batch is based on planets.   It’s the third “$1″ car batch, the previous two focused on episodes and factions.

These are quite nice - while Rogue One iconography is nowhere to be seen, you’ll see some retro graphics on the side with touristy vistas, Tusken Raiders, AT-ATs, lightsaber duels, Cloud City, and more.   You’ll even notice Rey on her speeder on the Jakku one.  If you ever bought the old Burger King glasses, the art style is similar to those.

So far Walmart’s have been the only Hot Wheels sets I’ve been all-in on, thanks to the lower price point and the creative designs.    As a bonus, they all have distinctive card art.   Get ‘em if you can find them!  Designs include Kamino, Mustafar, Tatooine, Hoth, Dagobah, Bespin, Endor, and Jakku - and are numbered sequentially in order of appearance in the saga.   At this time I know of no Rogue One tie-in assortment, but we've still got a few more months.

Press Release: Hasbro Reveals Many New Rogue One September 30 Exclusives

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 23, 2016

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.

Walmart Exclusive Black Series Star Wars 3 3/4-Inch In Stores Now, Maybe

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 27, 2015

2936 That first trio of The Black Series 3 3/4-inch action figures are hitting Walmarts now - that's the good news.  I spied two of them personally yesterday, neither of which seem to be significantly altered from previous releases.

Each figure is $12.93, and comes boxed.   Darth Vader is a repack of the classic 500th Darth Vader mold, and now we know the dome is not glued down - the sample I saw was floating around freely in the box, the figure loose and the helmet wedged down below.   Chewbacca appears to be a repack of the 2004 Original Trilogy Collection Vintage figure, which was $9.99 (and cheaper) and also repacked several times since then.  I was not able to confirm if Luke has any changes, as he was not available at the stores I examined.

Walmart Gets More Star Wars Waves of 3 3/4-Inch The Black Series

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, September 3, 2015

There's always hope!  Walmart has 3 figures up for grabs now and more are coming.  Tonight you can order Luke Skywalker (dirty boot redeco recolor of 2012 Vintage Blu-Ray Jedi Luke), Darth Vader (repack, possible redeco of the 500th Vader mold), and Chewbacca (possible redeco of 2004 Vintage Chewbacca.)  I'm in the middle of a series of large crises so I'll update this with facts (or your comments) as time permits.   As you wait, click below to see the figures at Walmart.com.

Upcoming releases include the unreleased Ceremonial Leia, Kylo Ren, and a First Order Stormtrooper.

Walmart Exclusive Sandtrooper and Dewback Star Wars Pop! Set Rolls Out

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, August 27, 2015

If you ain't seen it, the Walmart Exclusive Funko Pop! Vinyl Sandtrooper and Dewback may be at a store near you - and if it's like my local Walmart, it's literally the only Star Wars thing on the aisle.   The two-pack is $20.00 which means it's quite the decent deal.  Good hunting!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,775

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, April 3, 2012

The third time is the charm!  We got R2-B1 before in 2000 and 2007, but this is the one you'll want. This "newly" released hard-to-find Walmart exclusive started hitting big in the last week, so did you get yours? And should you?  Read on!

Image Bank: 01 Aurra Sing (Discover The Force)

By Mike — Sunday, March 4, 2012

We second our dose of pasty white, angry, former padawans turned gun for hire with the all new Aurra Sing from the Discover The Force Walmart exclusive wave of figures. Twelve years is a long time to upgrade from the almost pre-posed Power of the Jedi figure, but it's a worthy and even definitive effort.

GHR: $4 Vintage, ALL OF THEM, At Walmart

By Mike — Saturday, February 25, 2012

Walmart screwed up, and it's to your benefit, Hunters. They've marked down ALL their Vintage Collection basic figures to $4 (regularly $8.96). ALL means the latest The Phantom Menace and Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes waves (if you can find them).

Walmart Discover The Force 3D Gallery Has MTT

By Mike — Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Walmart.com has launched a Discover The Force 3D Gallery featuring various images that can be viewed with the special 3D glasses included with their DTF exclusives. Most images are featured on the DTF packaging and cardbacks but a few are rather new, including a cool dioramic preview of the upcoming MTT! Thanks to Jayson at Yakface.com for the keen eye!

The Force "Discovered": Walmart Exclusives Rolling Out

By Mike — Wednesday, February 8, 2012

The 1999 party continues and it's happening at Walmart. The Discover The Force exclusives are now being put out just in time for the release of The Phantom Menace 3D this weekend. Our initial concerns about single case assortments being found have been proven unwarranted by the wonderful revelation that Walmart stores (most of them anyway) will be placing a POS display with all 17 exclusive pieces including 12 figures, 2 Battle Packs, 2 Vehicles, and the Qui-Gon Jinn Electronic Lightsaber. Discover The Force indeed!

Discover The Force Figures Are Out

By Mike — Monday, February 6, 2012

The Walmart exclusive Discover The Force wave of action figures have finally hit the U.S. SWCollector reports finding the entire assortment at a store in Texas. The pricepoint is relative to the Movie Heroes line at $8.96 each and looks to be packed 1 per case. This may portend to tough hunting in the onset for the likes of Ric Olie and G8-R3, since these are a few of the figures in the wave which aren't planned to be re-issued in Vintage cards later in the year.

GHR: Target Markdowns, TRU Sale

By Mike — Sunday, February 5, 2012

After a lackluster January 30th that saw most merchandise released by Walmart weeks before and Discover The Force looking to be delayed until The Phantom Menace 3D hits theaters, it's time for some bargain hunting. Our Galactic Hunt Report advises you to stay on Target.
