While we’ve seen the initial figures for The Force Awakens releasing today, Hasbro can now also reveal some items coming out in the FUTURE in the months leading up to the new film’s release. After all this time with no information, this feels like manna from Heaven.
One of the things toy collectors are always on the hunt for, are retail exclusives. Items that only come to one particular spot, and Star Wars is doing it in SPADES. There are a ton of retail exclusives coming this Fall. Check them out:
• AMAZON: Pre-order the STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES TROOPER EVOLUTION 4-PACK, featuring four 6-inch figures not available anywhere else, including the long-awaited PHASE II CLONE TROOPER and a FIRST ORDER STORMTROOPER with exclusive red pauldron!

• TOYS “R” US: Toys “R” Us is your exclusive destination to pre-order the STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-inch FIRST ORDER SNOWTROOPER OFFICER action figure – this character won’t be available anywhere else! Build up your troops with this officer, which comes with a blaster and an exclusive red pauldron. Available for pre-order by 9/6.
• WALGREENS: Fans can capture the climactic battle from STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI with this exclusive STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH DARTH VADER (EMPEROR’S WRATH) figure, featuring an exclusive translucent mask with a visible skull underneath it, as well as an exclusive removable hand.
• WALMART: This fall, Walmart is the home for STAR WARS collectors and the exclusive home of the fan-favorite STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3.75-inch action figure line. A limited number of the first wave of the new line will be available in Walmart stores, and the second wave, featuring brand-new figures from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and a brand-new PRINCESS LEIA figure, will be available for online pre-order!
Lots of STUFF! You better get your wallets prepared now, if they aren’t already. What’s interesting is that the 3.75 inch line of Black Series figures are going to be Wal-Mart exclusives. For a while, that’s been Hasbro’s primary line of figures and best sellers, so it’s strange to see that be limited now. If you’re keen on hunting all of these down, I wish you good luck, but if not, which of these are you most looking forward to getting?
