st Star Wars day? Not according to retail!

May 04, 2017, 06:43:07 PM by dj121
Troopers, another May the 4th has come and gone. Were you able to find any of the 40th Anniversary product in stores? Many of us walked into Walmarts, Targets and Toys R Us stores across the country, with delusions of grandeur expecting a big restock of toys. As we hustled down toy isles expecting to see piles of new stuff, many of us were greeted with the same peg warming garbage that has been hanging there for months. It seems as though Star Wars day is completely lost on retail. Below is an image from a typical Walmart, with nothing new to be found.

st Deep Discounts continue at Walmart

April 25, 2017, 08:04:27 PM by dj121
Fellow Troopers, keep checking your local Walmart stores. Discounts continue on Rogue One merchandise. The Walmart exclusive 3-pack has been found for an amazing $4.50. (Worth the price just for the K2-SO figure alone.) Keep in mind prices may vary by store, but all stores should at least have some sort of discount at this point. Other reports are coming in that both the U-Wing and the TIE Striker can be found for as low as $19.87
