Has anyone seen the Walmart 3 3/4" Black Series Boba Fett, Sandtrooper, Ponda Baba, Tusken Raider figures in Canada yet? Any confirmation whether we'll see these up here?

 nope! with the han,leia and other figures in that one line, clogging pegs i didnt expect to see anything new from the SA 3 3/4'' line till Christmas (if were lucky!)

 nothing online either. they are just trying to sell off the back up of crap no one wanted in the first place. well, i did get the Leia. i dont think that figure is so bad. other then that i passed on most of those.

 anyway, good luck! i would hope by christmas they will hit the warehouse and put out some newer stuff.

It would be even nicer if they came out while they are still $7.97 each.

 i was thinking that too! haha :) but they are pretty on top of that but sometimes their is over lap. ive seen it..its harder to get but if we luck out maybe we can. 20 bucks for a SA figure after taxes is not right. that isnt just inflation. i saw a lot of TVC figs near the end of 2012 being sold on sale for 7 and change! i was just starting to get into collecting and i passed on about 9 or 10 vintage figures i saw..i look back now and think WTF was i thinking..haha but these things happen. ah well

Nope. An honestly I have lost all hopes in seeing The Last Jedi wave (Rose, Luke, Praetorian Guard and FO Executioner) in Canada.

It's November 10th. The street date was Nov. 1st. Pegs are clogging with old crap they're trying to sell. If WM Canada even ordered some stock (which I think is doubtful seeing how much of the old crap is clogging the pegs), I think it's safe to say they've been transferred to the USA.

So I decided to move on and resort to other means. Ordered them tru friends on Instagram. Cannot wait until there's nothing left on the pegs in the US.

To be quite frank I'm really pissed up. At Walmart and Hasbro Canada. The only new stuff we're getting in stores right now when I go visit and see boxes on pallets ready to be unpacked in the toys aisles at my Walmart stores are Rogue One Nerf Blasters from last year, Galactic Heroes BB-8 playset from last year and SW Monopoly from 2 years ago. It's a REAL SHAME to be a SW collector in Canada. We're getting screwed with huge prices and we don't see any new stuff. Very depressing and frustrated... especially knowing these damn cardbacks and boxes were transleted in French for the Quebec market!  >:( >:(

Yeah, I got my BS 3.75 Walmart figures from the US.  Really disappointing it didn't show up here.  However, at the regular price, I'm not too sure I would have jumped on them either cause it's $20 after tax for 1 3.75" figure.  When I got it in the US, I ended up paying a lot less than that.

I have a friend who lives in the US and buys stuff for me.  He waits till he's got a bunch of stuff first so the shipping costs does not figure too much in the price per item.

Did you get them recently, or was it earlier in the year?

It was back near Force Friday.  My friend said stock has dried up in his area since.  Even the Praetorian, he was only able to find one so I don't have him, but I never really wanted any Praetorian guards anyways.

I know they were from an earlier Black Series wave but my local Walmart must have recently restocked as they weren’t there the other day.  Amongst the usual pegwarmers were multiples of the Emperors Red Royal Guard (with Cloth cape), Imperial Death Trooper and Ashoka Tano - all at $7.97 clearance price.

The old end of the year Hasbro warehouse clearout must be in full swing. Hopefully a few new figures make their way as well.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Hey Darth,
I went back to Walmart to pick up a BS Deathtrooper for you but, unfortunately, they were all gone today.
