Memorial Day weekend was full of bounty at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California as new swag has shipped and arrived in their Star Traders store. Of particular interest to collectors would be the new Star Tours sets and Mickey’s Jedi Starfighter. But these aren’t the only pieces that caught our eye.
It's gimmicky, kiddy, and fun, yet it will likely earn some guffaws from legacy collectors looking for a more 3.75 inch fix. Hasbro announces a second exclusive for this year's San Diego Comic-Con International: An Angry Birds Vintage 12 Pack Action Figure Set!
The new Black Series premieres in fantastic fashion with two of the more iconic characters of the Original Trilogy (who will also reportedly star in their own stand alone spinoff films in 2016 and 2018). Presenting Hasbro loose and packaged photos of the hotly anticipated Comic-Con 2013 exclusive Black Series Boba Fett with Han Solo Carbonite.
The ToysRUs exclusive Vintage Collection Endor AT-AT is now available online for $129.99. TRU.com is currently offering FREE shipping with purchases of $79 or more along with a FREE Star Wars Fighter Pods pack.
An awesome surprise pops up this morning as USA Today unveils the upcoming Comic-Con exclusive Black Series Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite!
Hasbro joins in on this Saturday's International Star Wars Day celebration by offering a 20% off promo code at HasbroToyShop for any Star Wars toy, including their wildly popular Angry Birds assortment. Check out the press release after the jump!
Yakface.com has the scoop - the missing Return of the Jedi edition The Vintage Collection AT-AT is hitting Toys R Us! The vehicle has slightly different deco with Endor mud and a unique AT-AT Driver action figure which is the only one ever made to feature black gloves.
The Jedi Temple Archives are reporting that Gordmans received the hard-to-find 2012 Naboo Starfighter vehcle wave. Never heard of Gordmans? You aren't alone, as they are in only 18 states and not necessarily the most densely populated ones. All 3 vehicles from the wave showed up for $19.99 each.
Yakface.com reports that Hasbro has assigned a date of June 1st for the release of the ToysRUs exclusive Vintage Collection Endor AT-AT. Of course, given Hasbro's recent history with dates and releases, a caveat emptor applies.
So it's come to this! Let's wrap things up by looking at BoShek, which may well have been one of the first figures more or less born out of a gag on the internet. Mutton chops and angry column writers came together over 10 years ago to bring you this, one of the last figures in what was basically Kenner's house style of the 1990s. The construction is pretty good, but while a lot of people really did want Wuher, well, yeah. Sometimes you get what you ask for.

It's Willrow Hood, or the Ice Cream Maker Guy. Thanks to years of fan petitions serious and sarcastic, this extra from The Empire Strikes Back received his day in plastic courtesy of the awareness fans can generate when they work as a large, vocal group. Do you want to know more about this one?

Today, let's look at last year's Yellow R7-Series Astromech Droid. It's actually pretty swell! I like the nacho orangeness of it. The bad news is that it's yet another figure that will be (potentially) prohibitively difficult for you to find. Is it worth the effort?
