Reports are coming in that some retailers, such as Target are receiving solid cases of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure, such as the image above provided by forum member dubsack. This also appears to be happening at some Toys”R”us stores.
Now, we’re not opposed to this great figure of our favorite princess being in good supply, but solid cases of anything in this scale at mass retail seems like it could cause problems, unless we’re talking Stormtroopers or Royal Guards (even that would be risky).

You’re probably well aware that Hasbro’s last wave of Rogue One figures is available online through various e-tailers, but you may not have seen the price fluctuations on Admiral Raddus, Galen Erso and Lieutenant Sefla on Amazon.
Pricing has dropped down to $11-$12 at times, then back up to $18-$20 per figure. If you’re in the market for these figures, it may be worth keeping an eye on these prices and grab whatever you are needing when the price feels reasonable to you… and remember, down the road, $20 or so could be considered very reasonable for these figures on the after-market, so don’t wait too long to secure your figures there or through one of our sponsors.
