Okay so we try and stay away from sneak peaks but this one is an exception. Oh how I cannot wait to see this piece this weekend (I hope). Look for the full reveal soon either via Kotobukiya or from NYCC!

Gentle Giant has one heck of a deal going on. If you pre order the Kenner inspired Wamapa they will add in the Kenner inspired Luke Hoth for free! There is a catch though, you must pre-order before October 14th 2013 at 11:59 PM. The Wampa clocks in at 22″ tall and that makes him the
Now this is one heck of a deal. Amazon dropped the price on their exclusive Star Wars Legacy Droid Factory set. The new price is 49.99 AND you can get free shipping. If you do the math you will see that this is one heck of a deal. By far the cheapest we have seen for carded Star Wars figures in quite some time.

Our friends at Yakface.com are reporting that the Republic Gunship has hit a Toys R Us! The vehicle retails for $119.99 and comes with two bubble-turrets and three TVC style action figures: Yoda, Clone Pilot and Clone Trooper. I know some might feel a tad sticker shock but the value is there. Be on the lookout as these will start hitting stores across the country any day now.
While visiting some friends in Kentucky this past weekend I made a unique find at a local Wal- Mart. It seems all the Black Series Star Wars figures had been taped at the top of the bubble. Now I am not sure if this was done at the store level or if they came from the manufacture this way. All I know is it fixed this stores issue with the detached cardback debacle. As you see in the picture this was done nicely as it did not take away from the figure. I know this issue is frustrating and I really hope this is addressed before the next wave hits. With all of that said, what have you been finding at retail? This was the only Wal-Mart to actually have these figs so I do not know if it's store level or higher. Let us know what you see.

So you purchased the inaugural wave of the Star Wars Black 6" series AND you scored the SDCC Boba Fett, what now? As far as retail goes I am seeing very little left for the 6" series.

Coming this November we will get: Slave Leia Han Solo Greedo Boba Fett
Okay, I expected the Hoth Trooper to go up soon but I had no idea GG was producing a life size Stormtrooper! How cool is that! Up for pre-order are the Jumbo Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle Gear) and the life-size Monument Scale Stormtrooper.
HasbroToyShop.com placed a product page for The Evolution Of Dath Vader multipack. Look for this item soon and the retail clocks in at $39.99. I like this pack but to me the figures could come off boring to the average collector. If you want this piece save the bookmark!
StarWarsFiguren.com has revealed new carded and loose images of Mission Series wavve 2. I am not sure about you but these are growing on me. I swear it's the "vintage style" bug that's getting me.
