I went to one at lunch and their restock was a crapload of Elite Speeder Bikes and Walkers.  Too bad still $24.99.  I'd get the Walker if it were on sale.  To date, the only 5POA TFA thing I've paid full price for was the Elite Speeder Bike.

I got a PM from another member and thought I would clarify my posting.   The Walmart I visited had brought in a lot of Star Wars merchandise enough to completely fill a 20' section of the store .   This was not "new" product just more of what we have been seeing.   The only new stuff I saw, was some more Mattel Star Wars Ships and Cars that I had not seen before. i.e. Kylo Ren Shuttle and the Republic Gunship  etc.   So unless you are into the Mattel toys no need for you to run to your local Walmart.

I went out today looking to see if anything new might have been stocked now that the movie's been released, but I found nothing in Ottawa. In fact, I found very little at all. I though to myself, "I hope no kids want a Rey or Kylo Ren action figure for Christmas" ... I pity the parents trying to scramble to find something now.

If any stores were holding "dated release" merchandise in their stockrooms, they are certainly not putting it out yet.
I spoke to one TRU employee who was unpacking a few Star Wars things but she said there was nothing more to come out - stock was sparse - and certainly nothing NEW.

Went to both TRU & Wal-Mart and all I found was Vintage Collection!  :~/~:

Don't get me wrong I love the VC but I didn't want to see that ! I was expecting new stuff! Hasbro delivered wrong stuff or getting rid of peg warmers?  :sign0065:

I've seen that in a couple of Walmarts also.  My guess is stock in a warehouse somewhere being discovered behind other stuff, or at the bottom of the back of a shelf...

Walmart Employee #1: "Say, we got any more Star Wars toys in the back? We've sold everything we've got."
Walmart Employee #2: "Quick, Now's our chance! Grab that dusty old box of crap Phantom Menace toys and stick it on the shelves!"
Walmart Employee #1: "Yeah! You're on to something..."
Walmart Employee #2: "Those grandparents shopping for Christmas gifts won't know the difference."

These old cards have been trickling out for a long time now.  In fact I bought a couple to open , at least a year ago.  Who knows where they have been sitting.

I am still not seeing any new figures yet.

So much for the Hasbro CEO saying there would be plenty of SW toys on the shelves before Xmas. Maybe he was talking about all the stores putting out their unsold Phantom Menace figures.

You know I found some Clone wars stuff (2010 ish BARC trooper) newly on the shelf at a Walmart yesterday...instead of anything new, except for the Walmart exclusive Han Solo (Endor).

Its ridiculous that on a giant opening weekend, these stores are pathetically bare. Thinking back to ROTS or even TPM launch, there were tons on the shelf, all 3 3/4 inch line of course. Now there are a bunch of things no one wants, those mashups and repacks of figures we already have had a dozen times.

I don't know... its disappointing. I went to the Disney Store on Saturday and they had dozens of the new unmasked Kylo Ren and Poe Dameron Elite series, the Command Shuttle, and tons more of every other character in the elite series. Something you would expect these big box stores could get right.
