Hasbro’s squishy-miniature line of figures continues this holiday season with a series of blind packaged tubes, entitled Micro Force WOW! In what is sure to be a hit for Wal*Mart shoppers looking for stocking stuffers, this line will cease being a Wal*Mart exclusive in the new year. This latest wave of Micro Force includes Star Wars stickers and the very first Star Wars: Resistance merchandise by Hasbro and just about any manufacturer.

Pictured on the side of the box is both the pirate captain Kragen Gorr and the Astromech R1-J5 aka “Bucket”.

One the same day of this press release, our friend and fellow podcaster from This Week in Star Wars and Galaxy of Toys Podcast, Matt Fox found them at his local Wal*Mart on the East Coast.
