Target's Solo: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 Vandor-1 Heist Target Exclusive Playset Out Now

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 5, 2018

While they showed up last week, fans who found it were denied at check-out.  The embargo on the Solo: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 Vandor-1 Heist was lifted early on Sunday, so now if you want one you can get it for $44.99.   For your handy-dandy toy locating, mark down DPCI 087-16-0136 when hunting to verify if one is near you.

SDCC Solo: A Star Wars Playset from Hasbro

3624 That's not a typo.  It's really happening.

For years, fans have been clamoring for playsets from Hasbro - ever since we got the Cantina and Jabba's Palace dioramas around 1997 and 1998, I've been a pest about more flat, simple environments.   Weirdly, we're getting one from Solo: A Star Wars Story of Vandor-1.   It's about $40, has a few plastic elements, and includes another flavor of Chewbacca. 

While you may disagree - and you would be wrong - this is one of the most significant announcements in quite some time.  Hasbro hasn't made an item that's just an environment - not an environment tucked in a vehicle - in about a decade when it comes to the 3 3/4-inch scale.   It looks weirdly retro with plastic doors and other bits, so I can't wait to get my hands on one when it comes out.  Hopefully in September, to coincide with the home video releases.

Because I've never seen a link on another site that wasn't too good to repost, check out Boutros77's Cantina Diorama Gallery on Flickr.  Dozens of 3 3/4-inch scale shots of various figures in a diorama setting that's, frankly, too good for someone not to mass produce.  Be sure to check this one out.
