Hasbro Reveals New LAST JEDI Black Series Action Figures For Force Friday II

Christmas comes twice a year for Star Wars fans, the first time is Force Friday and thanks to Hasbro we’re getting a good look at some of the new figures that will be hitting stores shelves between now and December when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters.

Force Friday II is the massive Star Wars merchandising extravaganza that launches starting at midnight Sept. 1. It gives the die-hard fans the chance to get their hands on some figures before everyone else. 

THR’s Heat Vision got an exclusive look at a line of Hasbro’s Force Friday figures, including the company’s prestigious Black Series six-inch figures.

The first figure standout looks to be the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner figure. This one will be exclusively available at Target and retail for $19.99. This trooper’s duty is to “dispense final justice to those who feign loyalty to the First Order.” Fans are already speculating that Finn (John Boyega) will have to face them for deserting the First Order in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Hasbro also has a First Order Stormtrooper with an entire aresenal, eight accessories, to be exact and comes in a unique style of packaging. This one is an Amazon exclusive and will sell for $34.99.

But wait, there’s more…Hasbro gave iO9 and exclusive look at even more Black Series figures coming this fall. The first is giving us our first head-to-toe look at what Supreme Leader Snoke will look like. This detailed figure that even comes with its own throne, will be available exclusively at Gamestop this Fall for $35.

Presumably standing by Snoke’s side in the up coming Last Jedi, will be a few of these guys. The 6″ Elite Praetorian Guard is exclusive to Amazon and will sell for about $20. This very red figure comes with both a sword and a long, heavy blade

And if one is not enough, and you’re a fan of history this next exclusive pack is for you. The “Guardians of Evil” set exclusive to Barnes & Noble, Gamestop, and Disney Stores. It’ll set you back about $80, but this pack of 6″ figures spans the history and evolution of the Royal Guard design in the Star Wars saga, from the blue-clad Senate Guards of the prequels, all the way up to another Last Jedi Praetorian.

Trying to get all these figures is surely going to kill your pocket book, but speaking of death, who could resist this last figure. Even Walgreens is getting its own exclusive, this very dead and very translucent version of Obi-Wan Kenobi will sell for about $20. It is based on his appearance in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Gold Pops, S&P Stops, And Bonds Have Best Month Since Brexit

One look at the last few days in stocks and all we can say is…

 

Gold and The Long Bond were the best performers in August with stocks and the dollar unchanged-ish

 

Trannies were best among the major indices in August followed by Nasdaq. Small Caps lagged. S&P just managed to close green for August.

 

Treasury yields tumbled in August… the biggest monthly drop for 10Y yields since Brexit (June 2016)

 

With the yield curve flattening dramatically… August saw 2s10s collapsed 15bps to below 80bps (the biggest flattening since Feb 2016) near its flattest level since Aug 2016

 

Debt Ceiling anxiety has exploded during August…

 

Despite the last two days panic-buying, The Dollar Index ended the month lower – the 6th monthly loss in a row… (NOTE the morning’s spike on ECB leaks failed to hold and keep the dollar green for the month)

 

And notably, of all the majors, Yuan was the strongest against the greenback and cable weakest on the month (this was GBP’s weakest month since Oct 2016)…

 

In virtual currency-land, Bitcoin surged 65% on the month to a new record high…

*  *  *

Back to this week’s action…

Today’s biggest headline-maker was the 14% explosion in September RBOB futures as they expired (amid zero liquidity), but Oct Futs also spiked as more refiners were shut down…

 

Rather oddly, given the huge cut in demand (from refinery shutdowns), WTI futures spike today magically, back above $47…

 

All that mattered in stock land today was gettingh the cash S&P above 2470.3 for a green month… Sheer panic right at the close saved the day (S&P now up 9 of last 10 months)

 

FANG Stocks ended the month unchanged despite a massive 5% rip in the last week…

 

This week’s meltup in stocks is entirely opposite to the strength in bonds and bullion…

 

10Y yields rolled back to a 2.11% handle today…

 

The Dollar Index spiked this morning as EUR tumbled on a Reuters story about ECB, but Mnuchin spoiled the party and the dollar started sinking…

 

Gold flash-crashed overnight (with spot breaking below $1300), but precious metals players just bought the dip and sent it back to the post-Korea-Missile highs…

 

Finally, we note that gas prices at the pump hit a 2-year high today… and The Fed’s about to get its transitory inflation if RBOB plays through…
