Welcome to the latest edition of BC Toy Spotting! We are in and out of stores pretty much every day, and we figure (ha!) why not show all of our fellow collectors what we are coming across on pegs and shelves. As collectors, we know that staying on top of what is in stores can be almost a full time job, so we are here to help you with your toy hunts and outings. This week we found plenty of NECA figures, Funko, Star Wars stuff, and more! Let’s take a look!
Star Wars Galore at Target!
Starting with Star Wars, Targets have been restocking the Retro Series figures modeled after the Kenner toys of old recently for those that missed the initial push. Both the single carded figures and Escape From Death Star game with the new Tarkin Retro figure are in stores again. They are also restocking their Luke Stormtrooper Black Series figure.
Gamestop Comes Through Big Time
New waves of Mattel WWE Basics and Elite figures hit in droves at Gamestop this week, not to mention the new Mattel DC Multiverse figures featuring Joker from The Dark Knight and The Penguin form Batman Returns. Also showing up there is the former convention exclusive Storm Collectibles Mortal Kombat Smoke figure.
Target Doesn’t Just Have Star Wars, as NECA Invades
NECA had a robust week of deliveries to Target stores, with new figures and restocks of Alien, Predator, horror stuff, and the Golden Girls figures finally hitting shelves. I have to get me that 2009 Friday the 13th Jason figures soon.
Funko Releases For This Week!
As always, tons of new Funko is in stores. Wheel of Fortune, Star Wars exclusives, Batman Pop Rides, Pretty Woman, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Fairy Tail, Ghostbusters, NSYNC, Gears of War, and an awesome Cruella de Vil Hot Topic exclusive all hit stores this week.
And For You Stranger Things Fans…
The new Stranger Things Season 3 merch is hitting in full-force right now. The Baskin Robbins exclusive Steve Pop is in stores, presenting tons of problems, while Gamestop has a cool Stranger Things branded Polaroid camera available.
