st Sandtrooper Todd Reports:

November 21, 2016, 11:16:57 AM by Darth Spice
"Since September 30th there has not been much to report in Central Wisconsin but today I found wave 2 of the black series at the Stevens Point, WI Target. Better yet they had a one 30% off mobile coupon on all toys and so I ended up paying about a little less than $14 for these figures since they were already on sale for $18.84.  Hopefully there is still time to get to your target store and take advantage of this great deal."

st United We Find - The Mission Continues

November 13, 2016, 10:22:38 AM by Darth Spice
It's been very quiet around here of late and at this time I would like to apologize for the mistake of changing our slogan last summer.  What truly was meant as a joke was taken much too seriously by the world we live in today.  We will not "Make Collecting Great Again" by taking on a tagline from a person who makes so many of our Troopers feel anger and hate.  While I honestly felt it was time to move forward, we will continue to look for fresh faces and get things on a positive direction in 2017.  United We Find and May the Force be With you all!

st Black Series 6" A New Hope C-3PO confirmed! As Walgreen exclusive??

October 24, 2016, 07:57:14 PM by dj121
Hasbro has confirmed that we will be getting not only the Red arm version of C-3PO, but the classic A New Hope version as well! The drawback? A New Hope C-3PO will be exclusive to Walgreens! For reasons unknown, One of the most iconic characters, from one of the most iconic movies of all time, has been reduced to nothing more than a single store exclusive. Also note that we are NOT getting the once promised shiny vac metal finish for the figure. Instead, they are taking the same approach to the 6" figure as they did with the most recent 3.75" version.

st NYCC Hasbro Panel reveals

October 07, 2016, 09:13:57 PM by dj121
Thank you to our friends over at for covering the Hasbro panel at NYCC. We present a link to their site, where you can click through the album of images shown as the panel. One of the big highlights was the presentation of an all new 6" Black Series Darth Vader. This is a much needed improvement over the last release. It looks like Hasbro listened to feedback about the previous figure and answered with a great looking representation of Vader from "A New Hope".  While we were not able to attend the convention, much appreciation is given to them for providing the coverage.

October 06, 2016, 10:40:34 PM by dj121
Hello fellow troopers! Make sure to check out your local Walmart stores. They have been dropping prices on The Force Awakens toys every few days. My local store here in southern Maine had RIDICULOUS prices on TFA X-Wings and TIE Fighters. As you all know, original retail for these were $49.97 and $39.97, respectively. My store had the X-Wing marked down to $13.00 and the TIE Fighter for only $9.00! If you've been holding off on buying these, now is the time!

st Rumors of new Entertainment Earth exclusive Black Series 6" 4-pack CONFIRMED!

September 25, 2016, 09:28:22 PM by dj121
Recent reports coming in show what appears to be a new 2016 Entertainment Earth exclusive 4-pack. The exact line up has not been revealed, but these rumors are pointing to a "Rainbow" pack of Phase 2 Clones including a 212th, 442nd, 501st and a Shocktrooper.

This could be a great troop builder set for those of you who have been waiting for multiple clones. There is a release date, an item number and a price all listed in the photo, however when searching the site, nothing came up. This has not been officially confirmed, so as of now, this stays in the "rumor" category. We will update this post if more information becomes available.

UPDATE! The official announcement from Entertainment Earth had been made, and the 4-pack is now up for preorder! Click the link above and get all the details.

st Hasbro offers Rogue One "Value" vehicles Updated!

September 17, 2016, 07:46:47 AM by dj121
Thanks to a report from our friends over at, we learned that Hasbro will be releasing smaller "Value" vehicles. The first appears to be a scaled down version of the TIE Striker. The ship is smaller overall, lacks figure compatibility and the dreaded Nerf feature has been removed. The price point should be lower, but with little to no additional play value, will this new line be a success? Having the same vehicles available at two prices at the same time just seems like an unusual approach. And a great way to confuse the average consumer!

UPDATE! X-Wing also revealed in this line.
