Jazwares Micro Galaxy Squadron vehicles
« on: August 30, 2022, 07:54:19 PM »

Saw some of the Jazwares Micro Galaxy Squadron items at a Walmart. There were 2 display cases of 12 Scout Class Mystery boxes - blind boxes with a speeder and a figure - 7.97. There are 3 chase speeders - one of which is "super-rare".

Also saw some Light Armor Class vehicles: the regular Tie Fighter, regular AT-ST and Ventress's (sic) Genivix SF - 16.97. I didn't see any chase vehicles nor any of the Walmart exclusive vehicles: Fett's Starship, Imperial Troop Transport (Rebels) and Razor Crest (Arvala-7).

Too many chase vehicles for my liking not even including the SDCC one.

Saw a few of these vehicles at Mississauga Walmart this morning.  Tie Fighter, AT-ST and Genivix Sail.

A real shame about all the chase variants, blind boxes and exclusives. If I was interested in the line, that would have killed it before I even started.

Saw some of the Jazwares vehicles at a TRU. They had the Assault Class Millenium Falcon (ANH) - 74.99.

Also out were some of the Launch Edition Light Armor Class vehicles: Genivix Starfighter and Tie Fighter. I didn't see any of the chase variants and of course TRU is charging more than Walmart - 19.99.

Saw 2 of the Starfighter class vehicles at a TRU: Luke Skywalker's X-wing and Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter - 26.99. I did not see Vader's Tie Advanced or the chase X-Wing.

GameStop is also selling some of the Galaxy Squadrons vehicles although they are not yet listed on the website.

In-store I saw the Razor Crest (regular) - 44.99/40.49, Vader's Tie Advanced - 24.99/22.49, and Tie Fighter/AT-ST/Genivix SF - 19.99/17.99.

Saw a Series 2 vehicle #0044 Jango Fett's Starship at a couple of TRUs - 49.99, currently on sale for 34.97. Also available on line.

I also found a chase vehicle at the local TRU - #0017 Outland Tie Fighter w/Moff Gideon. One of the annoying things about the chase vehicles other than the chase factor is that they've numbered them as if they're part of the regular line.

Party City has Series 1 blind boxes - 7.99 although the local Party City has them on sale for 4.49 but not advertised as such.

Chapters/Indigo are also carrying some of the vehicles. I saw the Millennium Falcon - 64.99 and Seriss 1 blind boxes at an Indigo. The MF is also on line.

I have seen the Walmart exclusive single vehicles (not in Canadian stores) and pictures of the 2 Walmart exclusive 3-packs and the Amazon US exclusive 4-pack Trench Run. None of the multi-packs contains an exclusive vehicle. All of these exclusives come in US English only packaging. Given this and Series 2 vehicles starting to show up I don't think we'll see the Walmart exclusives in Canada. At least not in Canadian packaging.

In Canada there have been 2 different packaging variations. The first which is most common is a bilingual front with a multilingual back/bottom. The second is an English only front and bottom with a bilingual sticker on the back or side. I've only seen this packaging at Gamestop and it's for all the vehicles including blind boxes except the MF which is in standard packaging.

The chase Outland Tie was in bilingual/multilingual packaging except the 1 of 15000 sticker which was in English only.

A correction to my previous post. According to the guide at Jazwares: https://jazwaresv2.s3.amazonaws.com/media/resources/SW-MGS_Collectors_Guide_Series_1.pdf I didn't actually find a "chase" vehicle but instead a rare vehicle.

Rare vehicles are 1 of 15000 and non-blind box vehicles have a silver "RARE 1 OF 15000) sticker. Series 1 Rare vehicles are:

0006 Cobb Vanth's Speeder
0007 Speeder Bike (Imperial Remnant) with IG-11
0012 AT-ST Raider
0017 Outland Tie Fighter.

Chase vehicles are 1 of 5000 and non-blind box vehicles have a gold "CHASE 1 OF 5000" sticker. Series 1 Chase vehicles are:

0008 Speeder Bike (Imperial Remnant) with Scout Trooper and Grogu
0013 Tie Fighter (White)
0018 Jedi Luke Skywalker's X-Wing.

Saw Series 1 blind boxes at another Party City and they were clearly marked as being on clearance for 4.49.

Hilarious. Chase, rare, blind boxes... sounds like they have all the exploitative terms in use. So happy I'm not collecting these.

I really do wonder how well these are doing. I don't get into walmart that often, but it seems the same 2 or 3 ships have been sitting at my local one for months.

Gamestops are getting in Series 2 vehicles:

AAT, Bo-Katan's Gauntlet Starfighter, AAT, Luke Skywalker's Snowspeeder - 24.99/22.49
Yoda's Jedi Starfighter, Tie Fighter (Battle Damaged) - 19.99/17.99
Blind boxes - 9.99/8.99.

My nephew found an interesting listing at Chapters-Indigo: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/toys/starwars-large-6-vehicle-figure/191726416272-item.html?ikwid=star+wars+jazwares&ikwsec=Home&ikwidx=4#algoliaQueryId=4ba27332da9291db1a740f7a6b279732.

The title, pictures and UPC correspond to the "Walmart exclusive" Troop Transport. The about description and dimensions however refer to the 3.75" TT. From the price I would assume it's the Jazware's version.

A further search shows a listing for the "Walmart exclusive" Boba Fett's Starship: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/toys/starwars-deluxe-vehicle-8-vehicle/191726428800-item.html?ikwidx=1&ikwsec=Home&ikwid=star%20wars%20jazwares#algoliaQueryId=4ba27332da9291db1a740f7a6b279732.

I did not find a listing for the other single vehicle Walmart exclusive - Razor Crest (Arvala-7).

There are also listings for 3 other large Series 2 vehicles: LAAT, Havoc Marauder and Jango Fett's Starship: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/home/search/?keywords=star%20wars%20jazwares#internal=1.

The list price for Jango's ship is higher than TRU's price which is a new high (low?). None of these vehicles are in stock or sold in stores so it remains to be seen if Chapters-Indigo will get any of them in.

Received an email from Chapters-Indigo indicating the "Walmart exclusive" Boba Fett Starship and Imperial Troop Transport were in stock and available for order. The 3 deluxe Series 2 vehicles are also in stock: LAAT, Jango Fett's Starship and Havoc Marauder.

All these vehicles are listed as online exclusives.

The same "Walmart Exclusive" vehicles that are at Chapters-Indigo are now online at walmart.ca:

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/starwars-large-6-vehicle-figure-imperial-troop-transport-wave-1-grey/PRD6U7QR02YVK9Z

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/starwars-deluxe-vehicle-8-vehicle-figure-boba-fetts-ship-wave-1-grey/PRD20OW7I285WBC

Again I did not see a listing for the Arvala-7 Razor Crest.

Like Chapters-Indigo there are also listings for the Series 2 large vehicles: LAAT, Jango's Starship and Havoc Marauder. All vehicles are listed as online only and the prices on the vehicles are practically the same as Chapters-Indigo .97 vs .99.

I ordered a Troop Transport from Chapters-Indigo and it came in US English only packaging.
