Locally, I've only seen this line in stores twice. Once on clearance at wal mart (after they didn't stock them for xmas) and a case at Target that sold very quickly. Right now about the only thing pegwarming is the black series line at Target.. Those pegs are completely full with Leia and Maz.Shame more stores don't price these at $6 or below - I think it would help increase impulse purchases. These seemed to do rather well when they were holiday stocking stuffers, but they might be gathering dust at some stores now. Oddly enough, the GOA cartoon shorts are getting better, so that could increase sales if the viewership is interested in toys. I'm most curious to see if the line switches to a 5 inch scale as rumored, because that could bring in new customers, but exclude a bunch of 3.75 loyalists. I doubt we'll get any reveals until the summer though, as they're rumored to be coming out in the fall...
That's crazy! Wish my Walmart would do something like that or the other stories i've seen where new things go straight to clearance! Nice!Yeah, it's kind of weird. This Walmart is the only Walmart like this. I keep expecting the other Walmart's to follow, but they haven't. This Walmart is also where they had a price glitch when the 6" Solo movie wave first hit last year (Wave 27 I think) and had them at $5. Picked up Tarkin, Range Troopers, Han, Lando, Death Star Trooper, and Jawa all for $5.
Are you kidding? It's two inches taller! And the features are distorted as if the source material is animation, except it's not.actually, the 5 inch Galaxy Adventures figure of Episode IX Finn looks great. Id buy it right now if it was in stores here in the U.S. Its in the same small scale size with the rest of the 3 inch figures anyway even though 5 inches is a little bigger but who frikkin cares.
So what? The biggest appeal of 3 3/4th scale is the ease of making vehicles, big creatures and playsets rougly in scale with the figures. Plus, the integration of all lines since 1978. Especially everything non-animated since 1998 blends in really well together, regardless of POA or source material. There's appeal in something being part of that massive catalogue.so what if its 2 inches taller than a regular 3 inch figure for cripes sake
Exactly, uniformity is the backbone of the 3.75 scale - 5 inch animated figures wont look remotely realistic next to a 3.75 collection, so most fans will likely leave them on the pegs.So what?

Right now the only Ep9 Finn is this semi-animated oversized figure. Which is basically worthless if you wanted the character in this attire to add to a 3 3/4th scale collection.
