We found the 40th Anniversary - The Black Series 6-inch, legacy pack, and die-cast figures at Walmart in Northern Virginia. As expected, Han and R2-D2 were nowhere to be found. Also the items were oddly arranged with other characters and not in their own section. Start checking your local stores to see if you can get your hands on any of these.

UPDATE: It turns out that certified store shoppers will actually get a choice of the brick-built 30611 R2-D2 or the mini 30496 U-Wing Fighter polybags if they spend over SG$80 on LEGO Star Wars sets.

Celebration Orlando artist Brian DeGuire let us know that he has posted his leftover prints for sale on his etsy store. Now is a great time to get one of his Cantina or Jabba's palace prints before they're gone for good!

As you leave the polling station the survey droids at Rebelscum want to know which of the six winners interests you the most, so if you have the time why not cast one extra ballot in our latest Probe Droid Poll and see where it goes? There's nothing official in this - it's just for shizzles and gizzles.
