Steven Anne is the toy buyer for Walgreens, and on Twitter he confirms solid cases of 8 Concept Armor Boba Fetts are coming in November. The 6-inch Black Series action figure is in circulation now, potentially mixed with other Star Wars characters like Luke, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and a redeco Sandtrooper which should be in stores elsewhere real soon. He writes:
Toys R Us' new Hasbro exclusive Star Wars Rebels Mission Series The Ghost action figure set is making the rounds for $19.99 a pop if you can find it. (My closest store doesn't seem to have any yet.) In it, you get Kanan Jarrus and Ezra Bridger - which may be identical to the single-carded versions, we'll see - plus an exclusive holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi. It's quite nice. I have 3 short videos (one for each) after the break.
Toys R Us' new Star Wars resets are giving both sides of an aisle over to the space opera, providing close to Episode I-levels of real estate devoted to our favorite toy line during a period where, frankly, that's just confusing. But the advantage here is there's a lot of room to fill and the Star Wars Hot Wheels Death Star Battle Blast is in stores now. It's $14.99, has an X-Wing car, and... that's about it, really. See the image I took with a Nintendo 2DS, after the jump.
Because we're well past the point where making "Better than Ezra" jokes are funny, let's just say that Hasbro's Ezra Bridger turned out quite nicely. There's a lot of deco and fun details on a figure with only 5 points of articulation. There's also no gun, no lightsaber, not a single luxury. Like Robinson Crusoe, it's just a helmet. Read on!
It's time! Pre-order a Star Wars Saga Legends Action Figures Wave 4 Case right now and get the first 6 animated figures from Rebels as well as 3 of the Canada-only Saga Legends movie figures from this past summer. 3 returning favorites are on deck too, all in new packaging!
Pre-order yours today - Chopper, Ezra, Kallus, Kanan, the Stormtrooper, and the rest are all due soon.
Unless there are running changes we don't know about, there should be three versions of this Kanan Jarrus in circulation before Thanksgiving. One is in the Toys R Us exclusive 3-pack, another is packaged with the Phantom at Target, and the third is individually carded in the Saga Legends assortment. It's a nice figure - good sculpt, clean deco, and it stands nicely too. Read on!
For the first time in years, I'm actually really pleased with a holographic figure! Obi-Wan Kenobi is exclusive to Toys R Us and started showing up in my neck of the woods over the weekend. The set has 3 figures and is $19.99, and is arguably worth the asking price. He has one point of articulation - and I'm scratching my head to name another full-size 3 3/4-inch humanoid Star Wars figure with only one joint - with a really wonderful sculpt and pose. And he's hollow. Read on!
Let's talk new characters in this week's Q&A! Each new one is a big cause to celebrate. Let's also talk fresh faces - they bring new newness all over! We'll look at big giant new figures, too - how do they stack up against smaller pocket-sized counterparts?
As always, send in your questions for next time. Read on!
What I presume are Star Wars Rebels spoilers await you - as well as new themes like the return of classic Pirates, new Elves, Bionicle, and returning favorites can be found on this page on Imgur. New LEGO Microfighters, small vehicles, and absolutely nothing from the new movie awaits you. Click here - or better yet, don't, as some of the sets are unfinished designs.
Despite having just reset recently, Toys R Us stores are re-resetting with a new area filled with Marvel and Star Wars - Hasbro and LEGO mixed - near their usual spot in the stores. New toys are hitting right now, including the Mission Series: The Ghost set pictured here. The Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus figures are assumed similar (if not identical) to the regular releases, but you'll note that there's a blacked-out window there for a third figure.
New figures include Metallic Alien, Spacesuit Ripley , Kane with Chestburster, and Kane with Facehugger. These figures are due in November. These are all in the style of the awesome first batch of figures, which were based on actual 1979 Kenner concepts for unproduced figures in the style of the original Kenner Star Wars toys. See pictures after the break!
In a release on their own site, Global LEGO sales up 15 percent in first half of 2014. What this means is that their upward momentum - having passed Hasbro a little while back - was furthered by the hit LEGO Movie just enough to snag the top spot.
Here are the latest new arrivals and pre-orders from our sponsors at BigBadToyStore, including the latest The Black Series 2014 Wave 3 with Episode V Hoth Luke, Darth Malgus, Starkiller, and Episode III Darth Vader. Browse and shop the listing after the jump!

The white-hot ticket this week is Walgreens' Boba Fett (Concept Armor) 6-inch action figure. When you find it, it'll be $19.99 and near sick, sneezing, and otherwise happy people. The figure is a redecorated 2013 Boba Fett, which you may recall was an excellent toy for the price. This white Boba Fett has unique armor that is colored differently than his 3 3/4-inch counterpart, which you will see in a video after the jump.
