That would be fantastic! Hopefully the big pharma robots monitoring the internet will catch note of this and make it happen.

I've been wondering where Walgreens stands lately.  Granted, they did have the Force spirit Obi-Wan Kenobi last year, but it's been kind of quiet at Walgreens since then.

As for Zuckuss?  There were hints about a specialty store picking that up in light of TRU's demise.  Could it be that KB Toys will pick it up instead?  They seem poised to launch hundreds of stores in time for the holidays.  But I haven't seen so much as a legit press release from them, aside from that announcement on Linkedin that KB is coming back and an informal presentation at a toy industry forum.

Nice to see this Yakface rumor report about an Imperial Mudtrooper.  The design of these guys is pretty cool.

So based on the sneaky italicization this could be Han in Mudtrooper Uniform?  ;)

Means I'll need at least three, one unmasked and two Imperial dudes.

Glad to see this is coming!

Thanks Jayson!

What's the deal with unannounced stuff showing up at Tru in Canada? 6" Phasma with TLJ battle damage and Rey Centerpiece set. Kinda odd

I’d add: what’s up with all of these exclusives?  There’s enough for their own wave!

There's also the SDCC exclusive 6" Black Series Centerpiece Starkiller Base set.  The Rey in that release is essentially the same as the new 6" TBS Centerpiece Rey, but the base and Kylo Ren are new.  From what I can see, the battle damaged Kylo Ren looks like it has articulation.

Very interesting rumor report over at Yakface!  Some of these have been rumored for a while (Grievous, for one).  But others are a little bit of a surprise, like the possibility of a Dr. Aphra 3-pack with her two droids - this one just screams "EXCLUSIVE" to me.

The Aphra figures are “rumored” to be individual releases, not a 3 pk.

Seriously?  I personally think those droids are awesome, but I think they would work much better as an exclusive 3-pack, just like the SDCC exclusive TVC set.

There is some great stuff in that rumor report. Ezra AND Chopper? HELLS YES! (But what about Zeb?)

Happy to see Dryden Vos and the Battle Droid on the way too.

The Aphra stuff to me is just redundant and asinine IMHO and I really wish they would stop making non-movie or TV characters in this line when there are so many more important characters still left to do. (DOOKU!)

I'm kind of shocked to see that they've held back on PT characters like Mace, Padme and Grievous until now.  But I also get the sense that the way the 6" TBS line has been released, Hasbro is close to exhausting their options on OT core characters.  Be that as it may, Padawan Obi-Wan is a good addition to the line since they had already done Darth Maul and Qui-Gon Jinn.  Hasbro needed to complete that set.

I'm thinking that Ezra and Chopper might be some sort of a deluxe set.  Although you're left with the question of how do you approach Ezra?  Because he grew up over the course of the series, and his appearance changed substantially from season 1 to season 4.  As for Zeb?  I like the idea of completing the Ghost crew, but I'm curious about how Zeb would translate from the animated design to a more photo realistic look.

The rumor about reissues is good to hear.  The line is what, 5 years old now?  Some of those early pieces are scarce, and there's been a burgeoning bootleg industry.  It seems like Hasbro is almost leaving money on the table by not doing some kind of a "greatest hits" release for some 6" TBS figures.
