First launched in 2013, STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line quickly became a fan-favorite line, in the tradition of earlier Hasbro toy lines like the STAR WARS VINTAGE collection. As the new exclusive US home to the STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line, Walmart is proud to become the go-to destination for STAR WARS fans looking for the finest Hasbro toys available.

  1. Ugh, then I guess this line is all but dead to me, because Walmart around here never gets anything good (they still have TPM 3D figures on pegs) and never stocks anything in reasonable numbers despite this being the 2nd largest city in the country.

    The 2nd wave figures are of course not on the website as they claimed, standard operating procedure trying to get WM-exclusive Star Wars.
