Hot Off the Truck – Star Wars: The Force Awakens Toys

I visit big box stores daily for various reasons and always walk down the toy aisle.  This past week I have noticed a new wave of action figures and vehicles for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  We are a less than two weeks away from release, so you can expect to see a lot of new things hitting the shelves.  Walmart has an exclusive blue and white Resistance X-Wing that runs around $50.  It appears that they are not available online but there was two on the shelf my last visit.  If your Walmart is sold out they are going for quite a bit on ebay, around $70-$80.

While doing some Christmas shopping at Toys R Us I noticed their exclusive TIE Fighter.  The exclusive is from the desert battle on Jakku and features some tan air brushing on the body and wings.  It retails for around $40, and there were plenty on the shelves so no need to pay eBay prices on this one.

These vehicles are for 3 3/4-inch figures and Walmart had plenty of wave 2 on the shelves.  This is wave 2 of the Jungle and Space series.  I noticed the Snow and Desert wave 2 out about a week prior.  These are bound to go quick with the movie and Christmas right around the corner.

Target had plenty of their Black Series exclusives on the shelves as well.  Entertainment Earth’s exclusive is also in stock just in time for Christmas and the movie.  I also saw wave 2 of the Black Series on the pegs.  Of course, no Captain Phasma to be found.  She continues to be the hot ticket but is slowly coming down in price.  There was also a revision to the Black Series wave 2.  It drops Finn and the Stormtrooper and gives your two Kylo Rens.  We also got images and breakdowns of Waves 3 and 4.
