Since this is produced on the official timetable, you won't see some known-but-not-listed items like Wave 2 3 3/4-inch action figures, 2-packs, 6-inch figures, and so on. But what is on here may amaze you - a bunch of exclusives we've not yet seen! Read on to find out what you'll find in stores as the year goes on.
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.
Toys R Us will have an exclusive Black Series 6-inch set of Star Wars Droids during San Diego Comic-Con, but will not be at Comic-Con. As I work for Entertainment Earth and will be working on the booth for the show, I reached out to me for confirmation - and I can confirm this item will be sold online. (I also assume at stores later.) The droids are identified as R2-A3, R5-K6, and R2-F2 on the packaging.
Entertainment Earth Booth #2343 will be selling a number of other items for Toys R Us as well as their own exclusives, including some other Star Wars and Hasbro items. Click here to see the droid item at Toys R Us' web site.
It's back! The Toys R Us exclusive 6-inch Snowtrooper Officer action figure had a new production run and is showing up in stores all over Phoenix, AZ - and perhaps in your town, too! No obvious changes were spotted, but if you missed it here's your chance to snag one at a reasonable price. I saw them at two different stores so far this week, and it's only Tuesday. Happy hunting!
Toys R Us is offering a deal from now through November 21! "20% off ALL Star Wars 3.75" figures & vehicles." What they don't tell you is that some other items are on sale, and the asterisk is that Black Series doesn't count. My advice to you - scan every item you see, just in case what you want is on aisle.
It's here! Very few new exclusives have actually hit, but Toys R Us' exclusive First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter is out now. You get a little more paint for $42.99, a $3 markup over the regular version at $39.99.
The pilot is very similar to the regular version, but with added red stripes on his helmet. If you've seen the 181st Pilots or some of the specially marked ones from the original trilogy, you know what to expect. The TIE itself has some light brown dusting, but not any scorch marks on the wings. Just dust. The good news is that both the figure and vehicle are both visually quite interesting. The bad news is that it lowers the bar for vehicle deco variants - snow on the boots were a thing we've seen on figures for a few years, but sand damaged vehicles is, of course, a completely new thing.
My pal who I will call Juan Nonymous sent along sample shots of the Jabba's Rancor Pit gift set Jabba the Hutt in comparison with the 2010 model from Walmart. This new-for-2015 version is a 100% new mold with new deco, meaning it is... say it with me...
"Just different enough to make you mad." Well, not Jabba, Jabba's new and interesting. The rest of the set is as interesting as your collection isn't - it's great stuff if you don't got it yet. This set will be sold at the Entertainment Earth Booth at Comic-Con next week, on Toys R Us.com, and probably retail stores too. Want to see more images? Check after the jump.
I can tell you're excited - we're going to round out Toys R Us' latest exclusives (and take a break) with Clone Captain Deviss, a redeco of a figure that was a redeco of another figure. He has a name now! How about that? Should you care? Read on!
Available at a Toys R Us near you right now, Selig Kenjenn (not Zelig, I don't think) is shown being at the Battle of Geonosis. Except he wasn't there - the character is based on a piece of art depicting Holocron-keeper Leland Chee as a Jedi, which had TIE Fighters in the background. As such, it's less an essential movie collectible than it is a bizarrely neat trivia question for people like you and me who live and breathe this stuff. Read on!
While she looks a little more like Han & Leia's kid than the actress in the movie, Khaat Qiyn is largely pretty neat. Sure, she has a giant mitt, but Que-Mars' other hand had to go somewhere. Want to know more? Read on!
If you haven't seen it, it's out! A 501st Legion Clone Trooper Action Figure which stands a whopping 31-inches tall may be at a Toys R Us near you for under 40 bones, or clams, or what have you right now. Toys R Us stores are open slightly later now, so if you've got nothing better to do feel free to waddle on down and see what all is in their freshly-restocked action figure sector.
While it's not uncommon for a figure to have a minor error or two, Que-Mars Redath received two of them - and they're pretty interesting ones, at that. This isn't the first Weequay Jedi, nor do we anticipate it to be the last. It is, however, the first figure in the last set we're going to be looking at this week so go ahead and read on!
Super-site BFads.net posted the Toys R Us ad for Black Friday, and page #23 has a great deal - the 2012 MTT is returning for $89.99 (not a great deal) and the 2013 The Vintage Collection Republic Gunship is $89.99 (slight improvement). These all start at 5:00 PM on Thanksgiving. If you have a 20% off coupon, you could just buy it now and pay the extra six bucks. Click here to page through the beastly ad!
If you're collecting, you no doubt know that the Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Toys R Us Exclusive Republic Gunship is in stores now for $119.99. Hasbro has shown multiple iterations of which figures will be included - and now the Jedi Temple Archives posted a few shots.
The Toys R Us Exclusive Star Wars The Vintage Collection Republic Gunship is out now - it includes Yoda, a Clone Trooper, a Clone Pilot, 2 gunner pods, and a ship. That's the good news, as our pal @MattGuzy confirmed he found on in Arizona on the Twitter. The bad news? It's $119.99.
