Star Wars Celebration Orlando was this past weekend…and while I didn’t get to go, I did get to see some of the panels via StarWars.com’s livestream. I also got to chase after some of the shared exclusive convention merchandise.
I mentioned last week that my “Rogue Friday” experience on September 30th was kinda hit and miss…Target and Toys ‘R’ Us had new merchandise from Rogue One, A Star Wars Story; Walmart did not.
Well, at some point between Friday morning and Monday afternoon, Walmart finally put out their new display and merchandise. Now at this stage, I was only looking for an exclusive that could only be found at Walmart: Funko’s Pop! vinyl figure of rebel reactionary Saw Gererra.
A year or two after Revenge of the Sith came out, I more or less stopped collecting Star Wars action figures… I had more than I could possibly display at one time, and how excited can you get about buying different versions of the same character over and over again?
So I managed to miss the first Ahsoka Tano figure that was released shortly after the Clone Wars series debuted in 2008. Fortunately, she’s not that expensive or difficult to find seven years later. I was able to purchase a loose version with the money I got for selling off my extra Black Series Yoda.
