If you’re not planning on going to Disney World anytime soon for obvious reasons, your local Target store might become the next best place to get your fix of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
Starting August 30, Target will start carrying a new line of toys dedicated to Batuu and its sites, sounds, and characters. They’re calling it Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Trading Post.
First and foremost, at least for me as a Funko addict, there will be a new Funko Pop! figure of the red R5 droid seen outside of the Droid Depot. It looks super cool. Pre-orders are currently sold out, but check the link HERE as it could get re-upped before the August 30 release date.
There will also be a Lego set of the Resistance I-TS Transport vehicle, aka the initial vehicle you board during Rise of the Resistance. It includes figures of Vi Moradi, Lieutenant Bek, an Astromech Droid, and a GNK Power Droid. Pre-order it HERE for $99.99.
Next up are action figures of the one and only DJ R-3X as well as First Order captain, Captain Cardinal. I had to look this character up but he is apparently part of the deeper backstory of Batuu. I should really read the Galaxy’s Edge books. The pre-orders of these two are currently sold out, but again, check back if you’re looking to pre-order one. They’re $24.99 each. R-3X is HERE and Captain Cardinal is HERE.
If you need to get your Droid Depot fix without the building, they’ll be selling a RC-controlled white and red Hyperdrive BB unit. It’ll set you back $99.99 and is available to pre-order HERE.
And the big ticket item in this line is a Millennium Falcon Smuggler’s Run vintage collection playset. It’s a detailed “toy” that includes the Falcon, an escape pod, 3.75-inch Chewbacca and Hondo Ohnaka figures, and six little porgs. Again, the $399.99 pre-order (ouch) is sold out, but check HERE for restocks.
Will you be picking up any of these items from Target? I’m certainly going to try and get one of those R5 Pops and dream about a day when I can once again see that red dude in person.
