The one time I saw him there were two. 2 Snokes, 2 Leia'sI’m hoping there are just fewer Moloch figures than the others since he is in the latest wave, and hopefully there will be more stock once demand dies down. I haven’t seen him either, and online prices are outrageous!
Your post got me thinking...I decided to start running over to Target for exercise every couple of days. Running is pretty boring, but this gives me motivation. It’s about 5 miles total, and I’ve done it 3 times thus far. Still no moloch, but I at least feel healthier, ha!He's been in stock at Disney store online for a couple of days now. 7.95 plus shipping..which may match cost of gas driving around over and over.
Every time I see the name "Moloch" I want to say it like Indiana Jones when he laughs and says "Belloq!" when he's correcting Sallah for saying "they call him Bellosh". So, I usually kid around and say "they call him Molosh" and then I laugh and say "Moloch!"Despite the worst name in star wars ever, I couldn't pass on this heavy chunk of plastic named after a baby sacrifice idol. I learned my lesson with Hermie Odel long time ago when that was on the peg.
I got my Moloch 3.75" @ Target this past Summer, and I don't remember the figure being more money than the other figures in that wave, i.e. $8 (or thereabouts) - though I may be misremembering this. So, are retail stores charging more for this figure because it's bigger than a regular figure?! I remember collecting in the 200X's, and I don't recall Hasbro charging more for theHoly smokes, I finally saw this guy at retail today at Fred Meyer! My initial reaction was that of the old days when I'd found something after months of looking. But then I had to come to my senses since they were charging $10 for him, so I put him back and left. May regret it may not, but these just aren't worth $10 to me.
Good to know - that's what I thought. Kroger jacks up the prices on their SW figures; I would only pay $10 for one of these new 5 POA figures if I couldn't find it anywhere else. Though I do think Moloch is worth $10 (due to the bigger size), I was fortunate enough to find one @ Target over the summer for the regular $8 price.^ no...target charges same for all w/ same asst. So Moloch at tatg et was and is 7.99 regular price. Fred Meyer on the other hand may be charging 9.99 for saw fig because a sister company of thiers, krogers in my area, charges 9.99 for all we figs. So for them, 9.99 is normal.
Yeah the Solo line figures are really well done. I’m also a huge fan of the Rogue One 5poa line, and Hasbro did a great job with the TLJ figures as well. They really were at an all time high with their sculpts on the 5Poa figures, some even topping the TVC line. Shame we won’t see 5poa for TROS, and I’ll struggle finding any of the upcoming TVC figures at retail.Finally saw this figure at retail - looks great!
Haven’t picked him up yet - but defo on my list!
Overall - I reckon the Solo 3 3/4 inch line is one of the better I’ve seen in a long time - outside of Vintage Collection / Retro Collection lines.
Ha! I’m glad I wasn’t taking a drink of coffee when I read this! I was perusing this thread, saw this post, and realized I had seen/heard this line before. A tv episode about a rock star who was being threatened through back-masking messages or something like that. Don’t remember the show.Moloch is dead with his firey breath.

Really nice figure. My grandkids call him “the worm guy”.
