I haven't seen any in some of the toy stores here. I'm hoping to find a discount Tie Striker or AT-ACT.

that EE 4 pack up in the right corner on our page here is down to $46 at entertainment earth.


i got one for $54 shipped, that's cheaper than what it costs me for most trips to come home with one figure.

^ Saw two of these at a local STL Walmart for $9.00 each and bought them this morning. Really good deal for an awesome speeder, and an acceptable 5POA trooper.

I don't know. It kind of looks like a lazy repaint of that TFA speeder, but with a hideous projectile launcher pasted on top. I sure hope that thing is removable.

Yes, it is removable and is a really nice sculpt. It's the same sculpt as the Ezra speeder, just an Imperial paint scheme.

It's actually one of Hasbro's nicer attempts at a vehicle lately and is a good representation of what is in the cartoon:

As Target stores clear out the 5POA mess from TFA and Rogue One, be on the lookout for some gems that might show up...

As we come across these in the next month or so, please share!

The other day, Jeditemplearchives posted details on Target's plan on where to merchandise all the clearance Star Wars items here.

Today, while on a road trip, I swung by a Target store and saw this practice taking place:

Image

All this stuff was 50% off, save for the 6" Black Series which were $4.96~ish..

Try as I may, I was unable to convince myself to buy any of it. The Jakks Pacific Stormtrooper for $10 was tempting though.

Notice that nearly all of this is either gimmick stuff or limited articulation toys. It was inevitable that when Target set an entire aisle of Star Wars stuff, and the majority of it was low quality of just silly that this was going to happen.

Hopefully greener pastures are ahead for fans and retailers... because this can't be healthy for the brand... and the problem at Toys"R"us is probably worse.

No... It was pretty much these across each store:

Jynn (Eadu)
Cassian
Imperial ground crew
Rey Resistance gear
Goss Toowers
Hassk thug

...if these figures were customizer friendly, they'd sell better.
