Target stores across the United States will have an aisle display which features Hasbro's role play lightsabers, Hasbro's 12" Star Wars figures and the Jedah Revolt 4-pack. The Jedha Revolt 4-pack includes new 3.75" Star Wars figures of Saw Gerrera, Edrio Two-Tubes and the Hovertank Pilot. The set also includes a re-release of Jyn Erso, the main protagonist from Rogue One!
The aisle display was found by Anthony who lives in Northern NJ. Thanks for the pictures Anthony!
Good luck on your Toy Runs!
The Star Wars Space Club is happy to announce our official Star Wars Celebration Orlando giveaway collectible button set. Each unique button is licensed by Lucasfilm and includes the signature of one of the Space Club Commanders. These buttons will be available exclusively at the Star Wars Space Club’s booth (#2653) at various times throughout each day of the convention. Each button is limited to 200 pieces with a total of only 50 sets being dispersed each day. For the collector who is determined enough to complete the set, they will have their name entered into a chance to receive a Star Wars Space Club gift pack which will include not only Star Wars action figure vehicles, 6" Black Series action figures and few vintage collectibles, but also a complete set of every button offered by the club and their commanders.
Hope to see you there!
Fans and collectors of Hasbro's 3.75" action figure line wish Hasbro would return to the times between 2005 and 2012 when almost every 3.75" Star Wars action figure released was well articulated. Not only were those Star Wars figures nicely detailed, but Hasbro also released a lot of background droids and obscure alien characters (and even included diorama pieces with some figures!) which helped SW figure collectors to round out displays and dioramas.
With Hasbro's focus on a new Star Wars movie every year, and the focus of the main 3.75" action figure line on kids, there is little room to satisfy the demand of long-time and older Star Wars action figure collectors. Currently the only retailer to offer super articulated 3.75" Star Wars figures by Hasbro is Walmart, which has about 16 different figures per year with roughly half of them being re-releases of older figures.
On this week’s episode, Jake and Criz Bee discuss the release of Rogue One on home video, the conclusion of last week’s Star Wars Rebels episode and some of the great deals that can be found currently at retail. The hosts then address listener feedback on what the future of Hasbro figure line might look like and they discuss the possibility of a Hasbro Star Wars action figure subscription service. Toss in the toy rundown of the news and the collector calendar for the latest action figure-filled episode of TOY RUN!

Hasbro's Studio FX app, which in the past could be used to steer the AT-ACT vehicle, might be broken. Even though the app starts and is able to detect the AT-ACT vehicle, it is unable to connect to it so that users could steer the AT-ACT vehicle with it.
Do you own the AT-ACT? Have you experienced any trouble with the app? Let us know in the comments please!
