"As of May 22, Star Wars: Force for Change and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF are offering a new UNICEF Kid Power Band in a special Star Wars: Force for Change green color. These are in addition to the classic blue and orange UNICEF Kid Power bands and the Star Wars: Force for Change black band; all are available at Target.com and in every Target store from coast to coast."
For those into packaging variations and errors there is one on the Disney's Exclusive Elite Series C-3PO.
The figure I picked up at my local Disney Store has a sticker on the back of the box with the text "C-3PO" on it. The figure I just received from disneystore.com didn't have a sticker and the text reads "3-CPO".
I am assuming that "3-CPO" is a typo and Disney corrected it by placing a sticker over it with the correct text "C-3PO". Its possible that Disney may correct the text on the box as well and get rid of the sticker, since this item is not limited and is a normal stocking item. Guess we will have to wait and see.
A eBay seller from Portugal has posted a auction for a Black Series 6" Astromech Droids 3-Pack, that he found while visiting a Toys R Us in Hong Kong.
This seller mentioned that the information printed on the Price Tag stated "STAR WARS SDCC DROIDS PACK" Hasbro has yet to mention any information about this set, but it is possible that it could be this years SDCC / Toys R Us Exclusive.
Guess we will have to wait and see. Thanks to all our readers that sent in the information on this. To check out more photos of this set follow this link to eBay.

Added The Black Series 6" Jango Fett #15 paint variant to our HD Photo Gallery today. Earlier versions of this figure had a weathered paint application applied to his helmet and armor. Now it seems that Hasbro has decided to remove the weathered paint application from the newer figures being produced.
• 1st version. Date stamp 52441. Armor and helmet has weathered paint application.
• 2nd version. Date stamp 60051. Armor and helmet does not have weathered paint application.
Went and picked up a set of the Disney Exclusive Star Wars Elite Series C-3PO & R2-D2 figures at my local Texas Disney Store this morning. They received 16 of each figure today and have more on order.
Lots of people have asked if these 2 Droids are in scale to each other and to the other Elite Series figures and here is my opinion.
R2-D2 is just to large in scale when compared to the other Elite figures. He is a bit to tall and to big around. One neat feature of this figure though is that his 3rd leg will retract.
C-3PO is taller then I expected and is pretty close to scale with the other Elite figures except for R2-D2. I think the reason everyone thinks he is short is because we always see him next to the oversized Elite R2 figure, which makes C-3PO look to small.
I actually opened these up and did a quick side by side photo so you can see R2 and C-3PO together. Just click the image above.
The Disney's Exclusive Star Wars Elite Series R2-D2 & C-3PO Figures are now in stock at DisneyStore.com. Price is $24.95 each with a limit of 1 of each per order. These will also be available at your local Disney Stores today as well.
Talked to my local Disney Store Manager and confirmed that their Star Wars Elite Series R2-D2 & C-3PO will be in retail stores this Monday (5/16/16) and also at DisneyStore.com in the early am.
She stated that these 2 figures are not limited and will be a continuous stocking item just like Rey, Phasma, and etc. So if your local store sells out on the first day, more will be on the way. They will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
Some of these figures leaked out early on May the 4th and hit eBay at extremely ridiculous prices and I hope no one was silly enough to pay hundreds of dollars for them.
