Title: Solo Store Finds and Recent Purchases
Post by: Brian on April 13, 2018, 01:53 PM
Seems like finds have been a little spotty according to the reports I've seen so far. I went to two Targets this morning, about mid morning, and had decent luck but there were some things I didn't see at all.

First Target had an end cap display, and nothing new in the aisle except for a Black Series Han that has been there since last weekend. They had some of the basic figures (picked up Qi'Ra, Chewie, and Range Trooper), one set of TVC (grabbed Snoke, Hoth Trooper, and Rey), and some Funko (grabbed Lando and the Target exclusive Han). They had a couple LEGO sets (bad guy speeder and TIE), but that was it so far. No two packs, vehicles of any size, or beast/deluxe packs.

My second Target stop (which we call the "little" Target), had no end cap but the aisle was fully stocked. They had most everything: basic figs, starter pack w/Han, both sized Falcons, two packs, deluxe beast packs, Han's speeder, etc. They also had a lone Black Series Dewback. They also had a full set of TVC, black series (no Tarkin or Lando), and the misc. nerf and Hot Wheels stuff. Also some LEGO.

As far as what I didn't see at all:

Mimban Stormtrooper (basic line)
Maz Kanata (basic line)
Wampa with Luke Skywalker
Chewbacca (Black Series Target Exclusive)
Grand Moff Tarkin (Black Series)
Any Black Series past the initial wave
LEGO Kessel Run Falcon
LEGO  Han Speeder

All in all I'm happy with my finds. I was really hoping to find that Black Series Chewie, but maybe he isn't out yet. I do sort of want the new Falcon toy, just because I like all things Falcon, but looking at it I just didn't want to spend $100 on it. I also sort of wanted to get the LEGO Falcon, but that should be no problem to pick up later. Biggest disappointment I think is not finding the Wampa set, honestly 🙂.  Also, it has been mentioned before, but it really is weird there is no Han in the basic assortment. At the first Target I was at (with the end cap), they didn't carry the Falcon, speeder, or starter pack yet, so you literally couldn't but a Han Solo figure from the Solo movie.

I went back at lunch to one of the Targets I had come up empty at this morning and was surprised to see they had put a bunch of stuff out. I think I saw everything except maybe the Wampa and any 6" outside of Wave 1. They even had little Porgs. ($1 cheaper than Gamestop)That Swoop Bike looked pretty tempting, but I can hold out for the 6" version.  ;D

It was fun doing the toy run today, and I'm happy with what I picked up, but when I opened some stuff today with the kiddo, it really didn't look like much for what I spent you know? I think the biggest "Midnight Madness" haul I brought home at one time was for ROTS, and it just seemed like I had much more "bang for your buck" at that time. The toys aren't bad by any means, but just not like it used to be with $4.99 figures and better vehicles I guess.

Also, with this yearly movie schedule I'm almost hoping they just drop the whole release date thing. Half the stores even care anymore, and it just seems like more trouble than it is worth.

Well 13 years ago yeah things were def better with the line... 

I didnít buy much today because again I got to any store that put much of anything out, it was gone.  Target was about the only place that put toys out today.  Walmartís near me all **** the bed and put out either barely anything and probably on accident what they did put out, or they put out nothing at all.  Walmart truly does suck on every level haha.

Target put things out but people cleared the pegs of TVC except Jyn Rey and FO Trooper.  Han Speeder, the beast packs and that stuff was there.  I got a Wampa and that was my main goal but I wouldíve liked some basic figures maybe or the Hoth rebel and Wrinkly Ric Flair Snoke.  😕

Kinda disappointed today but Iím assuming Iíll find stuff eventually.  Iíd probably lol if I walked in Kmart and they were on the ball.  They werenít too bad with TLJ over Walmart as I recall.

I might hit up Kohl's tomorrow to see what they have (not expecting much but I'd like to find a few figures, even if just to see them in person).

Amazon has listings for some wave 1 figures, but the pricing is just not good right now.  Almost all of the wave 1 figures appear to be priced at $14.93, which just will not do for a 5POA figure, voice chip or not.  But it's good to have these links handy in a wishlist for when the prices drop to an acceptable level.

Qi'ra (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0721JXH1Y/?coliid=I29EIT34JINBAX&colid=XQXWWURIJPMS&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it)

Chewbacca (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072QWP8L3/?coliid=IVORYQXEN34BT&colid=XQXWWURIJPMS&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it)

Maz Kanata (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072QY9HWH/?coliid=I1M7J1BVZKASKX&colid=XQXWWURIJPMS&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it)

Range Trooper (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075LFT67P/?coliid=I3H1UN6CE7LCHM&colid=XQXWWURIJPMS&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it)

Stormtrooper (Mimban) (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071GKQQB4/?coliid=IH4EARDNGOHVZ&colid=XQXWWURIJPMS&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it)

K-2SO (https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Force-Kay-Tuesso-Figure/dp/B072KD9BSD/ref=sr_1_8?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1523711222&sr=1-8&keywords=star+wars+force+link+2.0)

Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) (https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Skywalker-Master-Figure/dp/B071GKQY8H/ref=sr_1_18?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1523711253&sr=1-18&keywords=star+wars+force+link+2.0)


At least the pricing is something close to normal on the Class A vehicle / creature offerings, at $19.99 each:

Enfys Nest's Swoop bike with Enfys Nest (https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Force-Enfys-Figure/dp/B071K5S23P/ref=sr_1_16?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1523711284&sr=1-16&keywords=star+wars+force+link+2.0)

Force Link 2.0 gauntlet with Han Solo (https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-including-Wearable-Technology/dp/B072K3FQW6/ref=sr_1_9?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1523711439&sr=1-9&keywords=star+wars+force+link+2.0) - $29.99

I saw a bunch of the 12" Solo figures already on clearance for $4.98 @ Target. They must have stickered them up as they were taking them out of the box, LOL.

I did end up seeing pretty much everything outside of Qi'ra and 4-LOM, but it took a lot of driving around.

Went out Friday morning with mixed results.

Started out the day at a very predictable and frustrating Walmart. This store consistently drops the ball. There was nothing out despite them having product in back. I called for a manager, they brought out a toy guy who insisted that the release date was Monday the 16th complete with orders from the main office. I pointed out the fact that that was wrong, that the box says the 13th. He begrudgingly went in the back and brought out a few boxes. I picked up all the 2-packs and a force link set, but he allowed me to buy only 2 basic figures. There were no Vintage, beast/speeder packs, vehicles or 6 inch.

I went over to Target across the street and bought all the basic figures.

My end of my area was pretty lackluster. My friend on the other end of the SF Valley got everything; basic figures, Vintage, 6 inch, including the Dewback, 2-packs and Beast/Vehicle sets.

Was out of town until late Saturday night - so for the first time in the modern era, I wasn't anywhere near a store on "launch day".

Needless to say, my results today have been piss-poor, not a lot left to be had. Even stores that hadn't put ANYTHING out yet, when you asked for stuff to be brought out, the result was cases of figures that had been cherry picked of the troopers that everyone seems to want.

I was able to score the two new 2-packs - the Lando set is pretty nice. Did grab two of the Enfys Nest's speeder bike, a Luke w/Wampa to keep MIB for now and the Force Link 2.0 Starter Kit - smart move on Hasbro's part to put the main Han in this set IMHO. The one WalMart that had the Force Link Start Sets had all of them damaged in some form or fashion, so I still need to track that down for my MIB collection.

Got so frustrated with the lack of 5POA figures out in the wild, I ended up just ordering a Wave 1 case from EE when I got home.

The only store that had the Han Speeder out had two that were both pretty mangled - so I did pick up an opener just cause I wanted to check the vehicle out. I could have done w/o the crash feature - it's basically like the crash feature of the AOTC speeders. Slightly annoyed that the back of Q'ira's skirt prevents her from sitting in the passenger seat - so I may pick up an extra of her solely for the purposes of removing that piece of plastic and having her on display in the speeder like in the scene from the trailer.

I'm probably going to eventually grab the Force Link 2.0 issues of the Rathtar, A-Wing w/Tallie & Rose w/BB-8 & BB-9E just to have those variations in my collection, but for now I've held off wanting to focus more on the new Solo stuff and the Vintage collection figures.

Managed to get what I wanted. Found the Lando set and one each of the Range and Mimban Troopers at an out of town Wally that is really on the ball when it comes to toys. I was able to order the Wampa from Amazon, so that should be here tomorrow.

Havenít seen any Vintage or the Black Series Porgs yet, but Iím not in a hurry on those.

Post by: Nicklab on April 15, 2018, 08:27 PM
I'm taking my time with this line.  This evening I picked up the 2-pack with Lando and the Kessel Guard, along with Enfys Nest & the Swoop bike.

Within A 5 mile radius of my house there are 3 Targets, 2 Walmarts, and a Meijer (and a TRU if it matters at this point). Only one store was stocked this weekend for Solo - a Target. Another store (Walmart) had the 3 packs, that's all that is out there in my area of Chicagoland. In fact, the stores that were not fully stocked did not even have price tags on the pegs or shelves for new items, as if no new product was due in. Thankfully, I found the 6" I wanted last weekend as it has been the weiredst launch ever in these parts...

This is the weirdest stealth release of movie toys I've seen. No artwork for rhe movie. Saw wave one except the stormtrooper. Walmart had one kessel run falcon and force link 2 set. Target just had figures and one lone 6" Jawa. Pretty pathetic.

Post by: GrandMoffNick on April 16, 2018, 05:53 PM
I may be wrong but I put this on Disney/Hasbro. Don't change the release date. Especially on somewhere like Target that is pretty anal about their planogram dates, etc.
Title: Re: Solo Store Finds and Recent Purchases
Post by: Nicklab on April 16, 2018, 06:35 PM
I think that Hasbro and/or Disney are rolling back the hype machine deliberately.  There was SO MUCH hype from the launch of the product line for THE LAST JEDI, but it happened 3 months before there was a movie to see.  Hasbro's CEO expressed that he thought it was too big of a gap between Force Friday and the theatrical release of the movie, and that the merchandising probably suffered.

In this case?  The movie itself was beset by bad press as a result of Lucasfilm firing the original directors of the film.  And it seems like the movie was reshaped significantly by Ron Howard.  To his credit, Howard did a lot to build up fan interest with his social media content.  The slow rollout on the product line might be an effort to keep expectations for both the movie and the merchandising in line.  It's better for Disney and Lucasfilm if this movie exceeds expectations, rather than having people's fears about the movie confirmed.


But back on topic?  I found Chewie today, and it was a pretty cool feeling.  He's always been a favorite character of mine, and with the movie seeming to build upon his story, I actually feel a bit excited to see an exploration of Chewbacca's partnership with Han Solo.

People bitch about TRU and say good riddance but not me.  Itís one less place to look. 

Iím not impatient and stuff but I am looking forward to some of these toys. Be nice to have them.

Ended up grading the Swoop bike and Luke/Wampa. Gotta admit that I like the look of the Swoop bike set. It's looking like an opener for me.

I got the Wampa from Amazon yesterday, and found the Mimban trooper at Target so I think I'm caught up aside from the Black Series Tarkin.

I dunno what's going on with WM, but two of them in my area have shrunk the SW section leaving no space allocation to either Black series or Vintage.

I wandered over to the downtown Chicago Target at lunch today and found a lone Qi'Ra...  they also had a Millennium Falcon vehicle that was $30?  What the hell is that thing?!  It looked just like the $99 one but was small as hell.  I think a lot of parents are going to be confused.

Pretty much everyone has reset for Solo around here. Vintage is spotty. Rey and Hoth Soldier are MIA. Mimban Stormtrooper. 6 inch Tarkin. And the Wampa, though I lucked out and found him at Target tonight. Enjoy this little line a lot so far.

The past hero series vehicles are really excellent if you give them the chance.  The X-Wing from RO had a ton of detail and the scaling is pretty nice.  They arenít for interacting with the figures, but these are nice for kids that love vehicles.

I've still yet to see any Solo 5POA figures in stores. I've seen the Lando 2 pack and the Maul/Qui Gon 2 pack but nothing else in the yellow packaging. I assume Target sold out and just hasn't restocked, but Walmart just hasn't stocked anything period. Only thing you can buy at my local WMs are lightsabers

Post by: Jesse James on May 2, 2018, 09:46 PM
The basics here have mostly come and gone with little to no restock.  That said, the weirdest thing I have seen, is that Qui Ra has pretty well disappeared fastest of wave 1 aside from the Mimban Trooper.  I see Range Troopers but never her anywhere.  People bitched about her look but she's selling so hey, whatever.

I'm shocked i see Range Troopers or Chewie.

I have yet to see a Range Trooper or a Mimban trooper.

At one WalMart I was at this morning, I bumped into a Hasbro rep and said "why has this WalMart not yet gotten the Solo figures?" and she asked the WalMart employee helping her and she said "do you have any in the back?" and he was like, "oh, we have them over here" and he took us to the clearance aisle and all that was left was Luke and K2SO. And I looked at her and said "why is that?" and she asked him if he could order more and apparently the system would not let him order more of that item.

I looked at her and said "so why is Hasbro giving WalMart exclusive Vintage Figures? this store probably had the case they received of those in the clearance aisle too. What about those 6" figures for $0.03? Why do you keep offering them exclusives?!?!" She shook her head and couldn't say anything. I know it won't amount to anything, but it felt good to vent a bit at a Hasbro employee.

+1

There's a Hasbro rep that I see at a variety of stores.  He's a nice enough guy.  But Jesse is right, these reps really don't have much if any pull at all.  The gig is more about merchandising:  making sure that the displays are organized and the product looks good in a given store.  Especially if there's any kind of promotional displays.
Title: Re: Solo Store Finds and Recent Purchases
Post by: Pete_Fett on May 3, 2018, 07:19 AM
Agreed - but if your job is merchandising and that the product looks good and is properly shelved at the store AND the brand new merchandise is in the clearance aisle, guess what? You have failed your job.

That is completely why the Hasbro rep got visibly frustrated when it was revealed that the new Solo figures, Solo Class A Vehicle/Creature items and the Vintage Figures all had ended up in the clearance aisle at this WalMart and honestly, she should be embarrassed that a customer had to call her attention to the fact that none of the newly launched product has yet to show up in the main action figure aisle at this one store.
Title: Re: Solo Store Finds and Recent Purchases
Post by: Nicklab on May 3, 2018, 08:12 AM
The responsibility of the rep is the shelving that's been assigned to their products.  When it comes to the clearance aisle?  That's the store's f*** up.  It definitely makes the rep look bad, but that isn't shelf space that a Hasbro product rep would have any kind of responsibility dealing with.  And I think we all know that there are plenty of WalMart employees who just DO NOT CARE.

Agreed - but she should have been asking herself "where are the new Star Wars products?". So it's a mix of both parties responsibility for the f-up.

Like I said - she was pretty upset that the new Force Link 2.0 and Vintage stuff was in the clearance aisle - and if she's responsible for other WalMarts located stones throws from the Garden State Parkway, then she's been doing a pretty lousy job of making sure new Star Wars is in the right spot based on the planograms.

Back in the day I was a Target toy team lead. The Hasbro rep would have no power to tell Target what to do unless they had a paid for space. Or inventory control to that store. They however certainly should know what and where things should be per Target's planograms. They take pics to prove it and ask about it if it's not right. That being said you're talking Walmart. So who knows. Not having product may be the expectation.

And I think trying to tell the rep where Hasbro should give it's exclusives is like telling the cashier at McDonald's what burgers they should start selling

Title: Re: Solo Store Finds and Recent Purchases
Post by: Jesse James on May 30, 2018, 02:19 AM
6Ē scale but still cool.  Jayson at Yak posted some pics on twitter of his with 6Ē Chewbacca and Han.  Def too big for 4Ē though their package lists them as 3.75Ē tall.  That can make things a little confusing but I imagine a 6Ē scale droid is 4Ē tall roughly.

Grabbed myself Enfys Nest today for $5 at Kmart using a $15 free points on $15 purchase.  The set was already on sale for $18.99 so it was roughly $5 for a cool little Speeder and figure.  Wish it had a stand for the bike but such is life.

I got the Han speeder for fairly cheap a week ago or so because it was on sale too and I used some of my accumulated expiring points.  So I have the shipís.  I also got some Hoth renels betwern two stores for free paying with just points so thereís that too.

I have a $7 on $7 points coupon Iím gonna use on a Paige figure Friday before the sale expires and the coupon starts.  I wanted an extra of her but she disappeared locally fast.

Should have posted my other post here...

I found the two new 2-packs in a Walmart in VA while passing through on Friday - Rebolt & Hound and Han & Chewie.

On a side note, please move/remove if this is not appropriate; doing a little promotion for a indigogo project I think is cool...
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/diorama-parts-and-accessories-for-4-inch-figures/x/115428#/

If you're not familiar, this guy makes accessories/set pieces for 3.75 inch figures, mostly. Some 6 inch. Up until now, everything has been cast in resin, he's trying to move to plastic, thus the campaign. I've bought his Rebel sled and Imperial Computer consoles and I love them. Will be buying the Tantive IV and Imperial Walls at some point. For this, he's starting doing boxes, crates and landing bay lights.

Over the past couple of weeks I picked up the wave 2 2-packs (Mimban Han & Chewbacca, Rebolt with Corellian hound), as well as the new Vader and the FO Stormtrooper Officer. 

I noticed that the plastic on these new figures seems pretty soft.  It was especially noticeable on Chewbacca.  Oh, and the cage for the Corellian hound?  Wow, that was a PITA to assemble!
