It looks like the Disney store has a few re-issues right now. Briefly yesterday The Mandalorian and Child were available. Jango and Toy Story RC Car are also showing up. So if you missed out on them earlier, like I did, then now’s your time.
The Mandalorian and Jango showing up makes me think that someone is reading my blog. If that’s the case…how about a Finn figure? Mace Windu? Some more POC? Maybe some Disney Princesses? You know, if you’re looking for some ideas.
It looks like they’ve reissued Darth Vader. He popped up on the online store today. A quick comparison of the older version shows very little differences. The only thing I noticed was the lights on his chest have a different light pattern. I find it amusing that in their promotional picture it looks like his lightsaber is bent.
With this reissue I’m really hoping that they’ll do the same with Jango and The Mandalorian. It’s probably much more likely to happen with Mando than Jango, but we’ll see. Stranger things have happened with these toys.
Since my last post a few of the other figures have gone on sale. It’s worth a look if you’re missing some that you want.
Just yesterday I posted that Simba and General Grievous had been spotted in stores. Now it looks like them as well as a new Stormtrooper are available. Simba didn’t end up being more expensive than the others. However, General Grievous is $14.99
If you’re looking to pick up any other characters Darth Maul appears to be the only one on sale right now. If you spend $75 or more you’ll get free shipping. So keep that in mind.
Sorry for the horrible photos. I haven’t seen these in person and had to screen shot what SuperSorrel has posted.
Anyway…holy cow I was not expecting a General Grievous figure!! That is so cool! I need some better pics to look at the details, but just the fact that he exists is exciting. I missed out on the Jango Fett and Mandalorian figures so as soon as I see Grievous online I’ll be placing an order.
It’s nice to see a new addition to the Disney line as well. Simba is an obvious choice. With the inclusion of Zazu I wonder if that means he’ll be on the higher price range.
As usual I’ll be updating my lists and I’ll post as soon as I see them online.
Listen, I wasn’t the hugest fan of The Mandalorian. I liked it, but there were definitely some rocky bits. However, it’s still Star Wars and it’s galaxies better than Episode Nine.
Anyway, The Mandalorian looks a lot like Boba and Jango Fett, of course. Which is a good thing in my book. They really nailed the Disney Toybox style with those characters. He’s got his nice armor, a gun, and did I mention The Child? Honestly, The Child is a bit eh. It doesn’t look like the crib closes and it’s basically a lump of plastic that hopefully has a flat enough bottom to sit.
Also, a bit of an annoyance, the figures are $2 more than a usual one. That’s normal for two characters, but still a bummer considering how little they did with The Child.
