:lol: :lol:



like the Revan wave that was supposed to hit in late december.


Lol, well, solid case packs are coming for Revan and the Chirrut/Baze wave should be hotting anytime now.

Solid case packs of 6" figures usually only go to online retailers like EE, DorksideToys BBTS and the like. I don't expect a brick and mortar store like Target or Walmart to get solid cases of Revan, Chirrut and the like.

Ah, that is very true, you're probably right...The distribution to brick and motor stores has been abysmal.

Likes: Vintage style cards, Earlybird "Homage"(only the second time they've used this), Original 12, display looks cool

Dislikes: Logo is offset, already 2 exclusives, 6" (would much rather have 3 3/4") .....waiting for a vinyl cape Jawa ultra limited exclusive

I will probably look to get these for the nostalgia factor. I'm a sucked when they throw vintage style anything out there...... yes, it's sad.... I know....

To be fair with this store, I don't think they get their stock for much cheaper than standard retail. They either have to mark it up, or don't carry it.

Shocked to see these have come up on the TRU UK website and they was £24.99, TBS are normally £22.99 but £14.99 at the mo. So 2 quid just for 40th! Thank goodness i get most of my figures in sales.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Seems a bit pricey for what they are, I do like the packaging, tru in Liverpool had tons of 14.99 figures, mostly the trooper figure though, I hope to see these on the pegs, see what happens

The more I think about what Hasbro is doing with this "celebration" of the brand, I just yawn.

40th Anniversary set of figs Wave 1 now showing up at Walmart in several locations in the W KY/W/ TN area.

I have a set pre-ordered from walmart.com at $15.97 each so I just picked up the Han and R2 that they were sold out of online and grabbed an extra Leia.
