Where Are The Solo Figures?!!!

Postby Cazza » Thu May 31, 2018 9:14 am

Looked in Smyths, Asda, Tesco and Morrison's yesterday and absolutely zip. Loads of full price TLJ peg warmers and a few R1 Figures. Surely they are on general release now?

Only FP and independent stores at moment. I have wave one but no signs of wave 2 yet.

I’m not collecting them but always like looking at them in the shops. Not seen any out and about. Plenty of full price TLJ though. The packaging isn’t very inspiring, I much prefer a black card back. Ultimately Star Wars Toys mustn’t be selling and the shops don’t want to be lumbered with the stock. Such a shame.

All I have seen are the Solo, Lando and Range Trooper Black series on Ebay.......No Chewie which is bizarre

I still haven’t seen a Porg which my daughter really wants, ridiculous really. Thought they would be everywhere after watching TLJ.

Ive got the lights and sound falcon. Theres a bit of cunfusion as theres a £30 version and a £100 version as theyre both small. I would say do not buy either as the more expensive one is never worth a hundred notes and will be reduced im sure, thats when it hits the shelves of course. I got mine inline from darkside toys, service was fantastic, item is absolutly pathetic, worse and smaller than the last nerf version, well dissapointed.

What kind of porgs are you after? I’ve seen a Funko large porg that’s exclusive to target over here and around last month I picked up some of the black series 2 pack porgs. Also rember seeing a stuffed one but I’d have to go back to the store. The Funko is 10”

I went looking for the figures today tried Smyths, Argos, Tesco Express, Asda and Disney store, no luck. Tried a shop called Fenwick and found the 4 figures. they had Luke, K2 and that orange thing but decided not to bother.

Thanks, yeah something like that I would snap up over here. Not seen anything like it over here. Think my daughter would like a cuddly one.

I’ve seen some about the other day in a couple of toy shops. I’ve got no interest in them whatsoever, they look shite, as do TLJ ones. Small little generic white cards. Rubbish. TFA and Rogue 1 one’s look much better. I did see a few 3.75 inch Black series ones though, in boxes. Tusken and Walrus Man looked quite cool.

Agree, I was gutted when I first saw the TLJ cards, I was hoping for a natural follow-up to the TFA cards for consistency. I get that fashions change, but I showed my 5-year-old a new Vintage Rey cardback and she loved it so much more than the TLJ small white cardback version. Lazy, unimaginative cost-cutting I think, but self-defeating from Hasbro as kids won't buy them. Same for Solo line
