SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY MERCHANDISE RELEASE WEEKEND

The weekend of April 13, 2018 marked the "official" release date for Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise.  It was the first Star Wars movie during the Disney Era of Star Wars that didn't include a big launch campaign and it proved to be hit or miss for most collectors depending on what part of the world they were from. Funko POP figures were plentiful on both sides of the border but Hasbro 3.75 figures were virtually missing up in Canada except for a small amount of overpriced Vintage Collection at EB Games.  6-Inch Black Series figures seemed to available in most US locations, but again, there were many stores that didn't have any Solo products on shelves.   We've got photos of the "launch" from Massachusetts in the US to Windsor, Ontario, Canada.  As you'll see in the photos, it was feast or famine.
