Went to Walmart based on reports tonight. I found the CW figs, and the Vehicles. took them to the price checker and....please see an associate for assistance on this item came up. Arrrgghhhh!
This kills me because they had the malevolence 2 packs out with a tag for them on the shelf. When I saw the 2 packs last week at  another Walmart they also had the august 6 crap on the boxes and that store didn't put them out.
I don't care at all about the 2 packs, but I just think the situation sucks.

at-at 44.95. didn't see the cloud car or snowspeeder.....tank and star ships were there.
on the cardback for GH...a superbattle droid/clone bomber figure listed....wonder what else is coming out that they haven't mentioned yet.
not sure if it was a cost saving measure...but GH figures seem to be made of softer plastic...and some joints are quite loose and pop off.
still happy with the hall....stuff out at one of the wally worlds in london...but not all of them.

Have they updated the snowspeeder or is it the same as the last version? Can't wait to get my hands on the Vintage C3P0 - it is amazing. :P

I saw on in the wild last night and to be honest, though I want to be excited about it, it looks short and a bit cartoony. I wish they'd done one that looked more like the TAC one but perhaps with a bit more deco or something. I guess at least it's different though!

Of course they did! That version is not only completely remolded, it's also to scale with the figures, so a little smaller than the vintage mold (thus then all other versions released so far).

Look at the detailed pictures from JediTempleArchives if you're not convinced to buy one (I certainly will!): http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=JReviews&file=print&id=416

LOL, I know. I really want to find some vintage figures, but I seem to be swimming in CW stuff. Which isn't bad, it's just not great.  :indifferent0020:

Finally, walked into a BC Walmart this morning at 7:30 AM and found at least 10 cases of Vintage hanging on the shelves.  I was able to get the ones I wanted, but no Boba Stickers.  No ships or clone wars figures as of yet.  They did have all the Malevolence 2 packs which I am not really interested in.  Start hunting BC Troopers!!!

Calgary Wal Mart has started to put these out as well. Northland had at least 5 cases on the shelf. No new vehicles though. I'm guessing we won't see these until first week of August.

I understand that the Boba Fett stickers will be on the next wave of Canadian Vintage packaging to come out, so we shouldn't miss tahe offer.

While this is good news, and what I expected, I wasn't planning on buying any openers from the next wave. I'll have to either wait til wave 3, open one I wouldn't have otherwise, or I'll have to rely on fellow snowtroopers that have extra forms. ;) I was hoping forms would show up in later cases of wave 1. Oh well.
