ESCAPE FROM DEATH STAR Escape from Death Star with Grand Moff Tarkin - The Retro Collection from Hasbro The Retro Collection Board Game

The first seven action figures released in The Retro Collection were revealed in Hasbro's showroom at the 2019 Toy Fair in New York City. The Escape From Death Star game featured on this page included the first new North American Kenner style action figure release since 1985. The board game itself is a pretty faithful recreation of the original game released in 1977, but its the Grand Moff Tarkin action figure included with the set that is a must-have. Even though this is not the first Tarkin action figure released by Hasbro (there were three other sculpts released previously), this is the only one done in the classic Kenner style, and to many, it marks a day that will be long remembered. Hasbro based the figure design on the 1980 classic Kenner Imperial Commander, but eagle-eyed collectors will note that like the other figures released in the first wave including Chewbacca, Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Stormtrooper, the Grand Moff Tarkin is a unique sculpt created exclusively for this release. All seven figures were released exclusively at Target stores on May 12, 2019, and saw wider distribution later in the year.

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practise of driving around all the nearby store stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
