I grew up reading my brother's old Marvel Star Wars comics, Jaxxon is bought on sight. Wish he was greener though.

I love the existence of Jaxxon and want to buy him just to support that but I also kinda hate the head sculpt. I'm fine with making him more realistic, but make him realistic and young, happy, adventurous looking. Look at the package art. They made him realistic with a head that looks like a tired, overweight old man of his species.
- ZacWilliam, this looks like Force Awakens Jaxxon instead of Empire Strikes Back.
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

A little belated, but a couple weeks ago, I did see the Target exclusive Mission Fleet IG-11 with child set (features IG-11, a child in harness and Imperial Speederbike). Surprisingly, I also saw the newest wave of Starfighters, with the TIE Whisper and Obiwan Jedi fighter.
For all the complaints about "nothing out there" from fans...I've had little issue finding a LOT of the newest Mission Fleet stuff. The biggest issue is still inventory, but it's a LOT easier to find Mission Fleet than the collector stuff at this stage. And the fact its new stuff says to me it's selling.
Next wave of the basic Fleet Gear also revealed via retailer listings. You can look forward to a carryover of Darth Maul, some form of Battle Droid (a standard droid with a mini STAP?), and a Death Watch Mandalorian of some flavor.

The Child in Harness works great with 1:18 scaled figures. I currently have mine sitting behind Heavy Duty firing a gatling gun out of an APC (RHINO).
So many murderous adventures to be had now.
I've been mulling over picking up the Blurgg set. Trying not to buy figures of "Oh hey there was this character on that one episode that one time" to keep the collection smaller. And yes, I know Nick Nolte was a major character in S1, but these are the mental gymnastics that I do to try to keep myself from going down the Mandalorian Rabbit Hole.
...hell, I already have the 6" Black Series Flame Trooper because it was on sale...

In the realm of "toys you'll probably be able to actually find":
Adam Pawlus reported seeing figures of The Mandalorian and Child (with Pram) available at retailers in their "Value" line. The 6" 4 POA line that typically shows up at Dollar General, Family Dollar and seasonally at places like Walgreens.
Probably have better luck with that than the Target exclusives (which I'd put even money on being reran at some point, be it a new run or Archive series).

Remember Galaxy of Adventures? The really novel 5” kids line that was WAY better than anyone would give it credit for? The one that got completely bogged down on Rise of Skywalker stuff nobody seemed to want to the point it languished for over a year?
Last fall we got a few tail Enders from online guys, but I guess Hasbro had a couple more tooled that didn’t make it out. Amazon picked them up as an exclusive.
GoA Stormtrooper and Mandalorian
Can’t help but wonder how the line might have gone if Hasbro had guys like the above two out at the line’s launch in 2019.
