UPDATE 7/23/2020 –
Great News! It appears that the frustration seen across the internet from fans, sites and collectors about the issues with Target’s Galaxy’s Edge (and GI Joe Classified) pre-orders, Hasbro and Target have agreed to open the Smuggler’s Run Falcon back up for orders this Friday! We received the update from Hasbro this morning:
The Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Galaxy’s Edge Millennium Falcon Smuggler’s Run Vehicle will be available again for pre-order starting tomorrow, 7/24, at 10AM EST in limited quantities at Target.
Following the pre-sale or shall we say pre-sale-outs of the Target exclusive Galaxy’s Edge merchandise, we were provided with the official press images and information by Hasbro. These images give us a better look at what is new and not new about the Sequel-era Falcon.
Falcon Upgrades from Original Release
- Paint deco updates
- Rectangle radar dish
- Hondo Ohnaka
- Smuggler’s Run sounds
- Chewbacca (reissued from TVC)
- Porgs x6 (reissued from TLJ Chewbacca figure)
Note – despite being featured on the front packaging the three Coaxium containers from the TVC Imperial Combat Assault Tank are not included with this set even though they are the main focus of the Disney park ride. Thanks to Jayson for the heads-up!
While it has been rumored that Hondo will be released on his own card in The Vintage Collection, we are very excited to be receiving this figure and as someone who spent a week in Galaxy’s Edge last year, we are excited to hear the new audio from the ride itself!
Fingers-crossed those looking for this set will have better luck finding it in stores on August 30th!
