So, did you succeed in getting a refund?

Stores are showing these still at 17.86$ on the pegs, so I wonder if they'll honor the rollback price. They should IMHO, but just wondering if anyone tried it yet...

That's good to know. Thanx DarthWoo! I too purchased mine from TRU , online just to secure one. And I just bought one from Wally.ca. I like to lower my cost basis as much as I can without running the risk of not finding what I want. I will go to TRU tommorow for a price reduction, and still hold my Wally pack for 90 days justincase they do a blowout like $10 . The only problem doing it this way is that I can't open stuff until a few months go by. Time to open my BS 6" Scarif trooper....lol :P

I bought two 3.75" online yesterday at 9.99$ and now they are at 7$... Do you know if it is possible to ask them for a price adjustment ? How should I go about that ?
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: DarthDerek on May 04, 2017, 08:49:06 AM
My Walmart store tells me that you can just call walmarts customer service and make the price adjustment over the phone. I myself have just gone a store and done it, however the customer service person at the store a few weeks ago said to me that they would prefer if you just call Walmart.ca for you rebate. :u:
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Bespin-81 on May 04, 2017, 09:03:23 AM
From Walmart.ca

_________
If the price of a product drops after I buy it, can I get a refund for the difference?
-

Within 30 days (with receipt), if a customer has purchased an item from any Walmart store that is now offered at a lower Walmart price, the store will refund the difference of the price for the customer. Important: the refund excludes items that are on Clearance.
___________

So, it looks like an online price adjustment is probably going to be a no, but it might be worth a try anyway. 

If that doesn't work, it might be possible to return to a store then just re-buy it at the clearance price (assuming the store also has the lower price.)

When I checked a couple of figures for store prices, all the stores listed on the page had the figures marked as clearance, but no price was given.   

Maybe if someone here visits a Walmart today they can confirm whether the $7 clearance price is at the store level, too.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Bespin-81 on May 04, 2017, 01:06:13 PM
Dropped by a Walmart and the figures were $7.

Another report here had the figures for $7 in one location, but $9.92 in another.

So, ya, if Walmart.ca won't price adjust, it looks like a store visit should get you some cash back.

Just contact them online.  You got it yesterday so they'll just refund the difference to your credit card.  Their policy is 30 days.  That's the easiest way.

Post by: DarthSlaad on May 09, 2017, 08:35:24 PM
So, as Bespin-81 told us, Walmart.ca refused to give me a price adjustment, because the item is now on clearance. I understand that I could go directly at the store, but I would probably loose time and gas, to not probably gain 6$, so...

By the way, they never answered the email I sent through their website. I had to call a few minutes ago. The gentleman I talked to was very polite and cooperative but that was a no.

I have been in several Walmarts this week and several have the 5 POA figures at $7 but just as many are still $9.92.  Same with the exclusive black series - some on sale for $13.73, most still $17.
Somehow I doubt that they will be putting out the new wave four (Galen Erso) while the older figures are now $7.  That would be too confusing.

92$ (tax included) for this piece is a shame. This is way too expensive. Even with free delivery. I mean, that toy should be worth top 60$. Glad I already have 2 of this very same toy. Wished I had the Endor version as well but I mean, nothing justifies buying this at an outrageous price...

Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Hellboy on June 06, 2017, 11:54:51 PM
I hope they fixed the crappy joints on the hips. I have the Endor version and the flimsy plastic in the joints snapped on both sides of the hips. I think I only posed it once or twice before the first hip snapped.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on June 07, 2017, 04:13:23 PM
I have this, and although it feels tighter and it can stand.  However, I've come to realize why it's so hard to pose, the left and right sides actually don't ratchet exactly the same angle.  So if you have say the top part completely horizontal, one side is slightly lower than the other.  To make it stand, I had to basically have one side in the notch and the other side just out of it or else it'll keep leaning to one side.  Hope I make sense.

It's still standing now after a week, which was a week longer than my Endor one was able to stand. (and no, I did not get it from Walmart.ca)

Also, got my Death Squad Trooper today.  Came bubble wrapped in an envelope.  Creased right across the card above the bubble.  I'm an opener, so not an issue for me, but I know some would care.

Just FYI:
I just checked eBay.ca/.com , and they seem to be selling for $1350.00 - $1550.00 cdn$ . And these are the current open auction sales. The "buy it now" asking prices are around $1550 -$2250.

Have you guys seen the resent resellers on Walmart.ca?
I was doing the usual "Star Wars in toys" search, and noticed the number jumped from the other day to over 1000 items for sale.  It's worse then Amazon resellers.  Figures from the past is always fun for me to sift through, but at 10-25 times the going prices, I can't find the patience to scroll through walmarts site anymore. :sign0065:

Saw 2 Jyn Erso BS 3.75" at Walmart and they were $5 too.  I really wish they had other ones.  I was really tempted to get her but ultimately left her on the peg as I just don't know what I can do with an extra Jyn. Couldn't even think of any potential customs I could do.

All on Walmart.ca.

Was able to get all my TLJ figs, including C'AI pilot that I purchased in the past from Walmart reduced to $5 each , showing only my receipts to customer service.  Sure they started by saying "oh sir, you have only 30 days etc. etc." but I replied then what's stopping me from going to the toy isle and rebuy all the figs for $5 and returning them with my $10 each receipts? (Even though I new they only had Roses and Rey's). She said your right! Let me do this for you.
I was able to get the Vader and Luke Center pieces ($40ea.) for free by doing this.
I only tell you all this , to let you know it's possible . Give it a shot next time your at WallyWorld.  :P

 i was trying for ERG's four or so days ago and im refreshing the page hoping theyd come back in stock, my timing was great and it worked after 10 or so minutes!! i ordered 4 of them and then 24 hours later it says my order was cancelled. some ahole at the warehouse probably scooped them for himself or a friend or some b.s. whatever it was it seems dodgy to me for sure. ah well
 
 i did score some Death Troopers though so that was cool.

 Good luck! everything else seems to be ok but the ERG are a pita to get.

I ordered a few Cassians (thinking of customizing a couple Battlestar Galactica figures) and got a notice saying they are out of stock and they are trying to fulfill my order through their supplier. Really annoying that they let the order through despite running out of stock. Unless they actually come through, but I'm not holding my breath.

Missed out on the troopers.

After you put the 999 in your cart you need to press checkout , then if that is a go, then there are 999 available.
I saw them available at 7:00am but I entered 10. I should have started with two and I would probably have them now. Haha

Time for a little serious note....
As someone who purchases star wars toys online from walmart.ca, I have never had a concern about returning anything to a Walmart store....until tonight.

I was returning a couple of black series figures...(and no they wern't Scarif Stormtroopers)...to a Walmart store in Oakville, ON....and they now have this stupid separate computer system for returning online purchases.  Basically, after the customer service rep processed my return, there is no longer a return receipt that is provided to the customer. She basically just wrote with her pen the return amount on my original email receipt that I printed off....so basically, I have no receipt or email of proof that the return was made.  I asked 'Where is my return receipt?' and the rep said 'There is no longer any paper return receipt provided to the customer.'  I thought this is completely unacceptable as what happens if the return doesn't end up going back on my credit card...'What am I supposed to do?... come back to the service counter and provide what as proof that I actually did a return?'  I ended up speaking to the Duty Manager at the Oakville store and explained my concern, but unfortunately, she too said there are no longer any return receipts provided to the customer....they just say ' ok...the return has been done, you should see the money in your account in a few business days'.

So I'm reaching out to fellow snowtroopers to see if anyone else has experienced the same type of return system lately as I have a concern that there is the potential of the return not being done properly...and I wouldn't want any fellow collector returning an item to suffer a potential similar fate.

I don't think you should sleep tonight.  You are completely screwed .  No return receipt, no paper work, when you don't get your money back - they will ask you for your return receipt . You will tell your story and they will say that makes no sense .    Classic Walmart scam .   :winking0071:

 Yep! i had this happen a couple weeks ago. the girl didnt give me a receipt either and i thought it was a mistake and i didnt ask (dont know why but i didnt) and just took back my printed off receipt i brought with me. i had no idea that the no return receipt is the new way of doing things :/ 

 i do know why they are typing in your order # though, i heard the manager talking to the employee and they said they are doing this now to make sure your online order matches your receipt cause theres a lot of fraud. i dont get the reason for not giving someone a returned receipt back as proof. its not like you can use a returned receipt for anything, you already returned your item! very weird!

 thanks for clearing that up about the receipt part and now u know why they do this too based on what i heard.

Thanks Bob for your reply....I appreciate it.  I found it very weird because I couldnt see the screen she was using to look up my online order...the computer she was using was not sitting on the front counter of the customer service desk...but on the counter behind it where they pile all the returned merchandise...it would be better to at least have the monitor at the front counter so they can show the customer their order on the monitor and explain the return process prior to completing the return transaction.  I guess I will know in a few business days if CJ is correct and I'm totally screwed.

Don't give up hope - deal with the credit card company - scan & email them a copy of whatever printout they wrote on at the store. They should accept your declaration that you returned the item physically anyhow!

I think the problem is: Walmart has a problem with fraud and someone in cubical looking totally from Walmart position has developed a process.  The process is flawed.  The reason you are not getting a receipt is because the return has not happened until someone else has verified the transaction.  So you are dependant on the data entry of the person of you being correct and the person verifying the transaction to do thing correct.  The problem is if they determine the transaction to be invalid - what recourse does the consumer have.  Bottom line you made a return - you should get a receipt indicating that you gave them product.  If they want to review the return fine but they need to hold the product in question in a secure location until they determine the transaction is valid and then return the goods to you if they determine it to be an invalid transaction.   You should definitely get something in writing and get the full name and time of the return, I would also suggest getting the manager on duty to sign off on the transaction.  The reason -be a pain in the ass - so the people on the floor will complain to upper management - who will see the problem and put a new process in place.

Yeah, it's weird how the At-Sts are not going on sale.  It's not like they are really selling well, at least, I can't imagine that they are, especially when you can get someone in the US and buy you one and ship it here and it would still be cheaper.

I dislike the new marketplace where things go on sale, sell out and there is a more expensive option from another seller but it shows as being from Walmart. Twice I almost bought something that was on sale, sold out and the price changed. It's quite frustrating.

All my stores still have leftovers from TLJ. One store alone had 12 Rose figures on the pegs.

Hopefully all the waves for Solo make it to stores this time around. With no new films until 2019 after this, there's no rush to put out another line of figures.

Why is it the US is getting all kinds of awesome sales and clearances and we get nothing? We fight over a few Black Series Scarifs and Death Troopers that are online for 3 seconds.

Picked up the Wampa today. This is a TVC quality fig, all the way! I'm sure this will be in vintage packaging at some point, I just couldn't wait for a sale on this one.
Another point of interest is that the Luke figures accessories are made with much stronger plastics. The blaster is firm and the lightsabre is stiff. ( enter jokes here :P)

Thanx to CC1138 for the location. :u:

Yes Patrick,
I'm turning mine right now.  The scarf doesn't flip back, if that makes scenes. The scarf must have a peg and fits into a hole in Luke's head, but I can't pull the scarf out.  The scarf rotates like a helicopter blade on Luke's head.
Mine doesn't have any glue at all.  Maybe wait until people have these and start making YouTube reviews on it to confirm, just so you don't break yours.  :character0005:

So, after hearing reports of you guys on the East coast finding the Scarif Stormtrooper at Walmart, I finally found him.  Think they just put out one case as there were 2 Scarif Troopers, 2 Deathtroopers, 3 Cassians and I think 3 Jyns.

All the other Walmarts in my area seemed to be getting the case assortment that had Ahsokha and Jyn with Lando and Ackbar.

Finally glad to be able to buy them for $5 as I'm never up early enough to get them from Walmart.ca.  I think my Rogue One army building needs are done now.

I'm with you on that! I found some at EB Games, unpriced, and had to ask. My jaw hit the floor when I heard they were $18.

How much were the Black Series 3 3/4 at Walmart? I didn't buy any. Were they that much?

I find it hard to drop $10 for the 5POA... $18 + tax is the end of the line for me.

Yeah, they retail for $17.99. The walmart BS were around that price too. I remember the Royal Guard wave was when the price went up and it was $20 after tax each.

While looking for new stuff at Walmart, got 2 more Deathtroopers on Friday for $5 each.  Still have not seen any of the new stuff including the new VC stuff at Walmart in Vancouver area yet. 

I guess to keep everyone occupied, here's some pics of my Deathtroopers.  I only wish they gave a way to attach the pistol.  I had to use my daughter's hairbands to make a loop (thankfully I had the foresight to buy her a pack of black ones...haha).  I removed the helmet thing on one of them.  Wish they made some without it as I think in the movie some had them and some didn't.  Don't even know how many should be specialists and how many regular.  Not sure if I would get anymore if I see more at Walmart, cause 5 seems like a good number.

Enjoy until we get more reports of new stuff I guess.

What is weird is that the Sacrif were not available for order on the listing page, but I shopped for other things, the advertising in the bottom of the page showed him "in stock".....So I ordered

What a weird internet site Walmart.ca !

I've been really intent on finding a Wampa/Luke pack but have had absolutely no luck.  :(

Walmart.COM *(Not dot C A)* has the AT-ST black series set exclusive down to $17.99. 
When or if do you guys think WALMART.CA will off load theirs? And at what price do you think it will fall to from $79.99?
I know there is a big debate now days about paying full price for things to keep the hobby going. But I already have two TVC. So me personally would only pull the trigger at bargain prices.
Or do you think Walmart will pass these to stores like "Winners/Marshalls" to sell?
Your feedback is appreciated  :u:

Simply knowing the fact that these are going for clearance makes me want to hold off till i find a good price.  I think 35 to 45 is a decent price.  Does walmart canada pawn off their inventory similar to the american counterpart? 
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on April 18, 2018, 09:52:06 PM
I don't think so. The At-At went from regular price to $100, then $75, and when it dropped to $50, I finally pulled the trigger. However, I'm not sure what they will do with At-St as I think it never hit the stores whereas the At-At was in store. When I got it for $50, some stores still had it at $75.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Eradicator on April 19, 2018, 04:58:27 PM
I am pretty sure they pawn these off to other stores at some point. I saw at the Walmart near me a few months ago them loading all the Rogue One/Force Awakens figures into those corrugated white boxes of theirs. I never saw any of those figures ever again at that store.

Ya, at $50 bucks I'm buying one guaranteed!  But if she ever gets as low $30-35 I'm picking up three. One to open , one to customize and you know, one for "JUST IN CASE"...lol  (SNL reference)

I doubt it, but the store I went to had them under an old clearance price tag of $10 for the force link 1.0 and no new tags. And when I went to pay , the cashier wasn't able to scan a price because it was brand new item to the store. So she called the customer rep from toys and he said $10.
It was like the IKEA commercial......."start the car!......START THE CAR!!!.....WOOO!".  Lol :P

I don't know, I just wasn't really excited about the Solo toys anyways so doesn't really matter to me.  I just want the 6" Enfys Nest.  The 5 POA one is way off scale.

I might want to get the Luke and Wampa set though as I want that Luke's head.  Don't care about the Wampa though but will see if I get it how it looks.

It would be nice to see wave 2 in stores. My local Walmart just got another case of wave 1 and I was told they had no more cases on order. Now Luke is the new pegwarmer. As for wave 4, I'm only after a few of the figures. I'm waiting to see photos before deciding if I want any of the others.

I wonder what Walmart is thinking of in putting these brand new figures out on line for half price?  They haven't even made an appearance in many of their stores yet.  Are they going to stop running the higher price items and stick to stuff under $20?
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on July 09, 2018, 04:07:21 PM
I took advantage of it, but I wonder what that bodes for the line.  It does say it's on Rollback.  Don't know if that means that's the new price, or someone just made a mistake.

Actually, I just checked, I think they made a mistake.  They're back to regular price.  Hope they don't change the price on me.

I hope they still honour the price I ordered them at when they go to process it.  The Solo figures were figures I wasn't willing to pay full price for as they don't really fit into my collection, but after seeing the movie, thought they were cool and decided I'd get them if they were on sale.

Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: IanToronto on July 09, 2018, 05:07:39 PM
There is no big mystery about the sudden price drop...Walmart is having a summer sale up to 50% off for a lot of their products....some of us were lucky to get them while they temporarily dropped the price.

There is a minion at amazon who's job is to search other website and adjust the price to meet the competition's. As soon as Walmart is sold out...amazon re-adjust the price back to 29.99...or more.

 they cant change the price on you without them mentioning it first. Even then though, thats dodgy business..Take the hit and take it out on the person that made the mistake,not your paying customers..Hopefully they just get sent though, jerks! ha

 Darthwoo, is your order going to your house or to a walmart store ? looks like they arent using Canada Post pick ups anymore. if its under 50 you have to select your closest walmart and i noticed the shipping time for that was longer. it says July 18th for my pickup. thats fine. as long as my orders go thru i dont mind waiting. you have to show them your receipt and a piece of ID to pick your order up too.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on July 12, 2018, 12:03:13 PM
Yeah, it's being shipped to a Walmart near me as it was under $50 and I didn't want to add anything else or pay for shipping.  My date is the 21st.

I almost think they throw it on their trucks with their regular shipments which is why it takes so long.

Hopefully it works out for me cause all my addresses I use is my work address but my ID has my home address.  Guess I'll just show them my business card as well with my work address.

 im sure your address thing will work out fine. i only repeated what it said in that first email i got. its kinda a pita how they do that now..and ya, i agree, i think they are shipping them in their delivery trucks to save cash instead of using canada post.

Hey Darth Cujo,
I picked up a second Tarkin last night from Walmart $29.99.  I will hold it with your name on it for a couple months just in case you don't find one, so you don't miss out.
I'm sure you will find one in the wild, but it's good to not worry if you don't.

As for 4lom , I'm still waiting for my preorder from NorthmenCollectables. I can't wait for this one.  :P

Post by: Darth Cujo on August 04, 2018, 06:10:01 PM
Thanks guys, much appreciated on the offers. Tarkin became available again so I ordered 2 (to get free shipping). Thanks for the heads up on today's availability on tarkin though. Once items come back in stock they sometimes fluctuate in and out for a few hours so I was watching closely.

If anyone else needs one let me know, particularly if in the Vaughan/Markham area. Otherwise I'll return the extra.

I have an order for 4-lom in with amazon.ca. One of those "order now and we'll ship when stock is available" things. I'm not holding my breath but am still hoping it will come through.

I ordered mine off a seller on Ebay that I deal with.  He gave me a great deal on the ones I wanted which were Val, Rio, and Leia.  Came out to cheaper than Walmart, but that was for me and I didn't want Dengar or Lando, so maybe that's why he was able to give it to me for the price I paid.  They were $30 CDN shipped so there's no point for me to buy it at Walmart.

Hope it's okay to post this on the Wal-Mart.ca thread, but has anyone else noticed that their local Wal-Mart has not restocked the Star Wars section at all for Christmas? Maybe it's just where I live, but it's been a long time since there was anything new.

I've been to 4 different Walmarts in my area: Dorval, Pointe-Claire, Kirkland, and St.Laurent. None have significantly restocked in months. All that's been added have been a few Vandor-1 sets, and the Solo Tie Fighter. It's still either the leftovers from Solo wave 1 or 2 at all of them. Wave 3 never made it out it seems and Wave 4 is still nowhere to be seen. I'm even seeing the odd TFA figure popping up at each of the 4 locations.

For the most part I have not seen much of anything new in most Walmartís around western Ontario.  I was very lucky to find Wave 19 of the six inch black series (with Hoth Leia and Val, Rio, Etc) in one store, and also the latest Solo wave (with Tobias, L3-37, Mimban Han,Val and Rio) at my local store and a few remnants at another.  But thatís been it for any sign of new stuff for m.

Same here in east end of the GTA (Toronto). Walmarts dropped wave 1 solo around May/June , wave 2 barely in August, wave 3 has only been on Amazon.ca none at Walmart. Then the second set of two packs hit once or twice  in early October. Wave 4 hit once around the gta around Halloween and never again. Only Amazon has wave 4 lately. And they are still toggling in and out. (Mud Han and Quay Tolsite aswell)
TRU only got wave 2
EBgames has been the place for me for both TVC and 6".

Walmart stores in my area received all 4 waves of 5POA. Only the 4th wave appeared only at 2 stores around mid-October, and only once. No restock at all past October.

For the TVC wave 3 (Range Trooper wave), again at Walmart stores around October 23rd, but no restock since then.

Basically, November has been very dry regarding Star Wars stock at both WM and TRU. And I had a chance to take a peek at the backstore at one of the Walmart stores I usually go and I can tell you we're not close to see anything new appear on the pegs: their stock room is filled with boxes and boxes of toys. A lot of Hasbro boxes, but none are Star Wars, mostly Hungry Hippo board games and nerf stuff. No SW figures seen at all.

Hasbro has more than likely dropped the ball regarding Canadian retail. It's more than obvious to me that we will not see new stuff for XMas. Hasbro may be sitting with loads of stuff at the Canadian warehouse, my guess is that retail stores decided to pass on these and they will probably reallocate stuff to their USA banners. I doubt we will see the TVC Mimban trooper and WM Exclusive Tie Fighter, the later having been spotted abundantly in the USA for the past 3-4 weeks now.

Nothing in BC either. The last wave of BS was Beckett wave and only one case at a time. Lots of Han,  Lando and Qi'Ra though. Only saw VC wave two at EBGames. The only thing they seem to be updated is the 5 POA figures.

Really JediPatrick, you seen wave 3 of solo 5poa. I figured Walmart just skipped that one. Mostly repacks, but I wouldn't mind finding a few more Orange Pauldren FO Stormtroopers.
And sadly I think your right about us not getting the TVC tie fighter :(
I guess there's always ebay.

No, sorry, haven't seen 5POA Solo wave 3 (featuring Luke Jedi, Rey, Vader and the FO Stormtrooper Commander). I got it from Kaia Boutique, so I can tell you Hasbro Canada did get that wave in their warehouse. But retail stores maybe just pass on it. Or maybe they're just not accepting SW figures anymore.

I did find Solo 5POA Wave 4 (Beckett, Val, Rio Durant, Quay Tolsite, L3-37 and Han Mudtrooper), like said.

And TVC Wave 3 (Range Trooper, Luke TLJ, Cassian Andor, Dr Aphra, as well as repacks of Han Solo from his Solo movie, as well as the Tank Driver) was found as well.

Today, I've seen the new wave of Transformers Toys (Siege of Cybertron) in a center aisle display at 2 ddifferent Walmart locations. Optimus Prime, Megatron, Sideswipe, Hound, Flywheels and another bot I don't really know), as well as the 3 sets of Micromasters and the Targetmaster weapons.

I was expecting a similar display for new Star Wars stuff, but I begin to despair and believe retail stores are trying to stay away from the brand due to its lack of success. Maybe they don't understand that putting repacks on the pegs is not what's helping to get product moving. Putting new stuff would greatly help. But they fail to understand. My 2018 XMas will be without new SW stuff for me this year it seems... very disappointing... : :shakehead:

Maybe they don't understand that putting repacks on the pegs is not what's helping to get product moving. Putting new stuff would greatly help. But they fail to understand.

It's how they do business with Hasbro.  Walmart doesn't order "wave 3" specific boxes.  When they hit their limiter (the number that says they need to order more 5POA figs), they order more from Hasbro.  Hasbro sends them what they have.  If Hasbro keeps sending wave 2, that's what they get.  It's dumb really, - but I can't fault Walmart that much for getting wave after wave of the same stuff from Hasbro.  I guess they could hire someone for each and every toy line to make sure they are getting refreshed waves but I don't think that expectation is realistic in any way.

The problem is more complex.  Hasbro needs to make so much of any one figure to keep costs down, but can no longer sell that much SW stuff with lack of demand.   Raising the price so they can lower the production numbers (and therefore have less pag-warmers) also won't work, because it'll just cause less toys to be bought.

The only solution is there must be a price adjustment in their costs (downward) so they can adjust the production numbers downward and still make the same money.  That means either at the factory or, as many people hope, not paying Disney quite the same $$$ for the rights next time. 

Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Woo on December 20, 2018, 01:00:03 PM
To add to this, Hasbro sends to Walmart's warehouse what they have in stock.  They may send to Walmart Waves 1 all the way to 3, but then the Walmart distribution center would ship out however many cases to the Walmart stores that re-ordered.  That's why you get some stores constantly getting the same wave 2 or 3 times in a row really quickly, and then some other store finally gets a restock and it's the latest wave.

It's just random what the warehouse sends out.

For  TRU they do separate the SKN number for different waves in some cases, such that they have a different SKN number for the Rogue One wave with Cassian and Jyn than the ones used for the TLJ waves.

However, I don't know if they order based on that or do they just ask for a case of Star Wars Black Series 6" and they just get whatever the warehouse sends them or if they order by SKN.

It's so clear to see where the logjams occur, based on our collective understanding of the shipping/ordering/warehousing situation - but it never changes. It's like they don't have any realization that us, as consumers, want FRESH BLOODY STOCK. Why on earth do they continue to create log jams at the warehouse stage? Why don't the retailers know enough to force their hand and make the send the freshest stuff available?

Eh, it's a little like traffic light problems.  Yeah, you can get smarter traffic lights, and that might make things better during non-rush hours, but that doesn't mean there are less cars on the road at the time the traffic is heavy.

There just needs to be an adjustment on the Star Wars brand.  It obviously still popular, but not what it once was, and I suspect Hasbro is producing like it once was because Disney charged them for what it once was.

But the problem seems pretty widespread. TO be fair, Walmart has done a much better job than Toys R Us.  At least Wal-mart from timt to time is getting new waves in.

Speaking of which, I saw 5POA Val, L3-37 and Rio at a Wally in GTA yesterday.  I don't follow 5POA much - what wave is that?

It's been years though, literally since 1999-2002, when the epI glut sat there for 3 years on clearance & we couldn't get the sio bibble/swimming jar jar wave here. You would think that someone would care - and if not care at least notice - that the product wasn't selling through because it was OLD.

Only took them two years to finally put these on sale.

It looks like The Vintage Collection figures at Wal Mart are back to the regular price of $17.97.  This probably means that the newer waves will be shelved in the next few weeks.  My local Wal Mart's have no or very few TVC figures left.  On the other hand, it looks like TRU has restocked the first wave of TVC (good luck selling these) and I doubt we will ever see the new TVC waves in store at TRU.

Not sure if they made a crap ton, but considering those two waves had tonnes of repacks. If you are MOC collector, you're going to buy them. If you are an opener and don't care about the cardbacks, then only the 4 or 5 new ones would be of interest.

So most of the figures that you could get for $1 - 5 being $17 now is not going to motivate  people to buy

Interesting, not a third party seller so it's not an exclusive up here then. I think that's actually $5 less than I paid at EB before taxes.

Looks like walmart has webpages for 5 of the 6 retro ESB figures.

https://www.walmart.ca/search/star%20wars%20retro/N-110


Oddly, no Leia.

Maybe this means they'll have some online stock.

I also popped into walmart for a couple items and swung by the toy section. As expected no sign of retro figures in my local store. And the SW section had about 6 black series shelf warmers sitting on the shelf with no pegs allotted for them, one of those 5" figures and nothing else. No space for vintage or retro.

The WM here in Niagara Falls is showing 0 in stock for Black Series and marked down to $1 each. I assume they're either resetting or just clean gave up on them. All other stores in Niagara are showing single-digit stock at regular price.

I think the aisle-island shipping thing stopped them from hanging retro pegs. I don't know what will happen if any of the figures (retro or the retro ghostbusters that shipped alongside them) don't sell - maybe they'll go straight to the clearance aisle.

Hi fellow collectors....I traveled north this weekend to the cottage and passed by the Barrie North Walmart as they had 33 of the 42 Retro figures in stock and figured I could pick up a set for another fellow collector looking for them. When I got there, all 7 Boba Fetts were gone....so out of the 9 missing figures from the display, all 7 Boba Fetts gone. I picked up the other 5 which brought the total number down to 28 on stock tracker. So I'm here to call out the person who bought up all 7 Boba Fetts, you should be ashamed of yourself. If anyone sees Boba Fetts on ebay from the Barrie or Orillia area, ...or surrounding area, don't buy them. Sorry kids...but it pisses me off! So if you are reading this Mr/Ms Scalper...I wish you all the worst of luck in the near future.

In fact...anyone selling these on ebay within Canada at inflated prices, as they just came out recently in limited display quantities, should be ashamed. Don't buy them off eBay guys!

Everywhere I went in the Montreal area, all Boba Fetts were also gone, everywhere except at one location where I happened to go at first time in the morning after they had just set up the display (I looked at StockTrack for several days and saw stocks gradually appearing in stores in my area). I managed to get 2 Boba Fett for myself (1 to open, 1 MOC). But that's it. Each and every location I went to after that: nada. All the figures where in place EXCEPT the Boba Fetts.

Some guys are worthless s**t and idiots. We knew it would happen. It's disgusting. I'm foreseeing many sellers in the next few Toy Shows will try to sell these at inflated prices. I'm not gonna refrain myself to tell them what I think of these slimy A-H. No kidding: I've lost my father, my sister and my wife recently due to cancer. My tolerance for this kinda stuff is zero to none nowadays and I'm not afraid telling these creeps what they really think they are in front of everyone.

In case you needed another reason to hate Walmart:

https://financialpost.com/news/retail-marketing/suppliers-absolutely-furious-at-walmart-canada-plan-to-recoup-investment-through-new-fees

That's pretty much standard operating procedure for WM. How about they take that infrastructure cost out of their OWN profits? Like every other company has to do. Or at the very least, find a way to pass it along to customers.

If I didn't already not shop there, I'd say I'd boycott them.

They have so many horrible effects on the companies they choose to do business with already, it's impossible to be surprised. I think they realize this & don't care - but pretty soon everything sold at WalMart is going to be worse quality than what you're getting at Giant Tiger or even Dollarama because WM nickels & dimes their suppliers so fiercely, they have to cut quality to keep making money. Pretty soon your product is a shadow of what made it popular in the first place & no one wants it. Had a Cadbury Dairy Milk or Fruit n Nut bar lately?  :speechless-smiley-004:

I got mine from the US.  I traded a Rogue One figure I got at retail for it.  I was really wondering why he was willing to trade and offered that.  Apparently Fenn Rau was really hard to get in the US at the time and I think the At-St was on sale for like $10 so it was worth it for him to ship it all the way up here.

The Carbonized 3.75" Mandalorian figure that is exclusive to Walmart is coming and going back in stock on Walmart.com today.  You are limited to (2) of each of the exclusive figures.  These figures are $17.99 US, so I am guessing that they will not be coming to Canada.  We may get some of them, as we did get some of the Gold Exclusive Walmart figures here in Canada.  So hopefully they will make it here.  The new Mandalorian season comes out October 30th.

Yup. I've given up on most things. Not worth the time or energy, nevermind the money. Jumping through hoops to the point of insanity. I'm not really after these guys but the few things I am after are difficult enough.

Between this and GI Joe the exclusives are insane. Hasbro is making it much easier for people to quit these days.

I feel like this business model is a self fulfilling prophecy. Things are so limited that they sell out insanely fast and they see it as a success. Meanwhile they are losing potential money by short supplying the market but there's no way to measure that missed opportunity. I think getting stuck with mass quantities of Rogue1, solo and sequel trilogy product has led them to this point. This way nobody is sitting on inventory and their products appear to have scarcity and high demand.

Anyway, it is definitely frustrating. I am reevaluating what I collect and it will likely be even more scoped down than it already is going forward.

I've got bookmarks on my browser and I'll check them randomly a few times a day when I have a minute.  Check randomly enough times and the law of averages sometimes goes in my favor. I rationalize the effort on the fact its easier than driving all over town like the old days.

I'm not sure if it's necessarily Hasbro's initial intention to package so many of these as exclusives. There is likely a significant drop in interest in the Star Wars action figure lines in general from retailers over the past few years. It's getting harder for Hasbro to push these onto retailers, so they have to hold up more and more exclusive "carrots" in order to get buy in. Retailers tend to prefer exclusives as it's a guaranteed way to drive traffic to your store. But to me, this is how toy lines die. When the manufacturer has to rely more and more on the gimmick of store exclusives, it's a sign that interest is waning, which just gets worse due to so many exclusives. Some examples that come to mind - 90s Playmates Star Trek, the original run of Marvel Legends until 2009...

100% agree. I've said it many times lately, Star Wars is dead at retail. At least here in Canada it is. The customers interest is not there, and hasn't been, or years. And the retailers are certainly seeing this. :(

Now is this due to a lack of offer from Hasbro and other toy manufacturers? Or solely due to the customer base fading away, with young kids really not interested in the toy franchise? I'd say the answer may involve both. But the thing is -- and we'd have to be blind not to deploy the garrison... er... not to see it -- it doesn't really matter who's fault it is. Because it's clear that we've entered a "novel" era of consuming products which doesn't involve seeing products on actual store shelves like we used to see for the past few decades. Now, online purchase is the way to go. And Hasbro and the retailers have seen this.

Moreover, exclusives are the only way for Hasbro to "push" the products of a fading franchise to the reluctant retailers. For a retailer, exclusives are the only profitable way to sell these products: it forces the customers thru a funnel, their decision-making process altered by a compulsory desire to get the products while they last. It creates false impression of extreme rarity (while most products out there have been produced at normal levels) and induce in the customers -- which are mainly adult collectors -- an urge to acquire these, sometimes in vast quantities. And it often makes sure the products are not warming the shelves and pegs.

Often, but sadly not always. Because sometimes (most of the times lately), the choice of exclusives (Tie Fighters for Walmart or most BS 6'' figures for Toys'R'Us), coupled with a poor product distribution (all across North America, with huge quantities pilling up in some selected stores and nothing for most), things gets screwed up. And at these times, online retail is the only way to go to ensure proper product placement all over. Because you don't need distribution, really. You don't need stores. You go directly from the retailer's warehouse to the customers...

Well I guess we know why Walmart is not going to match prices any more now.  The new strategy is to price gouge customers.  The new Vintage price on Star Wars figures that they think could be highly desirable is $24.97.  It could be a new strategy to try and stop resellers from buying up all their online stock and reselling it.

  A stratedy ? bahaha. not really making fun of you but this company can take a hike. 25 bucks for a figure. On thin card and bubble stock as well. The sheen on it isnt even that good anymore. you'd think 18 bucks was the limit for high prices. Im not really a big collector but i manged to get a decent amount the last 7 years or so.

Walmart US is charging $17.68 US for their exclusive carbonized 3.75" figures.  Which are  the previous wave of figures, carbonized.  Add 40% and you get the new CDN figure price.    And of course the higher charge is warranted because of the white glove service they offer on all Star Wars Vintage figures.  It takes time and money to figure out how to stuff a 6x9 carded figure into a 4x8 bubble envelop .  You have to get some one highly skilled at mashing and has no concience for the customer.  So it all makes sense to me this new strategy .   :r2d2line:

It's very likely a mistake. If you look in their Holiday Toybook flyer it clearly has VC figures advertised at the usual 17.98 pricepoint. Why would they put out the toybook with that price and immediately raise it?" It makes no sense. It'll likely come back down eventually. I'm willing to bet the 24 price will be the price of the deluxe Mando with Child VC figure and there was some sort of system mix up.

It's not just here in Canada. Adam Pawlus's weekly Q&A addresses some inconsistencies in pricing in the US as well. Things are all over the place it seems. Both Hasbro and some retailers trying to see what people will pay. "Deluxe" 6 inch Boba Fetts and $33 6" Joe's, Retro figures being overcharged. Sometimes it may be mistakes and sometimes it's probably by design. As Adam mentions sometimes it's a "collector tax".

http://www.galactichunter.com/gh/story/qa-star-wars-consumer-media-rpg-toys-and-price-increases

I feel like the retro ESB figures were a mistake but they came to Canada in such ridiculously small quantities, people snapped them up just in case and then they disappeared. Walmart never even had to react to the erroneous pricing. That's my theory on those. If I was a walmart buyer who cared nothing about star wars they would all look the same to me. Why not charge 17.99 like the other ones? Especially if they sell like hotcakes!

It is probably going to be the "wild west" this Christmas in terms of pricing.  Throw out everything you thought and realize that because of COVID the mass majority of people are buying on line.   Call it the "Collector Tax", "COVID TAX", "We got and it and you can click and stay in your safe home tax" or " it is made in China and China shut down tax" , this is as we have been saying for months "The new normal" .   Bricks and Mortar stores are on the ropes and online can smell the blood.  I have been saying for awhile if you support Amazon and not a store like Toysrus, eventually Toysrus will go out of business and you will never see a sale price again, you will see "market pricing".  Walmart and Amazon and both have their online market places - meet your new scalpers.  On October 15 - Walmart announced that they will no longer be price matching in Canada.  Now you see the real reason why :" Online Market Pricing" or as 66jedikiller66 found out "We Reserve the Right To Change Pricing Any Time We Want" .   :r2d2line:

If you have kids, I can vouch that this is a suitable stand in for a death star playset! With lights, sounds, 2 figures and a bunch of fun action features if you have kids that like playing star wars then they will like this and this is the lowest I've ever seen it.  I believe it was originally priced at $200 and it was a good deal when it originally went down to $87 on Amazon.ca.

I have the Black Series child in front of me here, and I put it next to my 4-inch 5POA Boba Fett figure, then compared it to the TVC photo. I'd say that the child in the Walmart pack is slightly smaller than the Black series one.

I noticed in the season finale of today's Mando episode that there are moments when the Child's scale seems to fluctuate from scene-to-scene (he looks smaller when compared to the feet around him, but then larger when he is picked up and held in Mando's hands, and so on)

I use the Black Series child for both my 4-inch and 6-inch figures since the size of that toy seems almost like midway through both scales.

5 of the 6 retro ESB figures are in stock at Walmart.ca. I'll give you 6 guesses as to which of the 6 doesn't even show up in a search.

I might cave and order the 5 at these ridiculously inflated $18 prices. At this point there's still no word of these showing up at online retailers post a walmart exclusive window. I wish they would since it would actually be cheaper to order from a US retailer with shipping and customs at regular US prices.

Boba shows up in a search but I filter out sellers that aren't walmart. He's available for $250+ if anyone wants one.

As for the pricing I really do believe it was a pricing error by confusing the retro figures with the vintage collection. They're probably all the same to walmart. But since they sell out so quick there's no need to correct it if someone points it out. Either that or Hasbro Canada is being cheeky.

You didn't pick he Tusken Raider? Granted he was already made on a Vintage cardback more than 15 years ago, but not numbered in the VC line. And... it's the one of he 3 hat was the most retooled: new ball-jointed elbows, new head, ne clothe robes. Luke is a kitbashed figure with a new head (with non-removable helmet, a tribute to its vintage counterpart) and the DSD is just a simple repaint (albeit very nicely done) of the BAD DSD we got several times in the past.

These POTF2 Bantha are the best Beasts/creatures produced by HasbroIMHO. The real fur makes them quite lovable for kids and improves the likeliness for adult collectors. They are must haves. I have 2 as well and would love to get a few more, especially if sold in a Vintage Collection Box.

As for "Levy"... I hope she treated him well... combing his hair, feeding him, patting him, telling her stories for bedtime. That's what my daughters would have done... :P  ;D

Same story here. In a too small box. One got bend marks, so that will be my opener. The other can be uncurled. No notice of shipping here either.

Does anyone think the cardbacks seem a bit thin on these?

my card was but the bubble is crushed. argh, why they put them in envelope. tried to ask about replacing it but they have no record it shipped

Received 1 single Paploo in a bubble envelope as well. The cardback is intact, the bubble as well. Was quie surprised to say the least. For two reasons:

1) I expected the cardback to be folded and bubble crushed, like everything I received in such a way in the past. That Fedex managed not to destroy it is a miracle;

2) Last week, I cancelled my order I've placed for one of all three figures. I cancel it after finding what I needed in store in the clearance/junk aisles (because they didn't know where to put them, they just throwed them on a shelf with random toys).

So... the credit card was never charged and my Walmart account shows the order was cancelled with quantity of 0. LOL So maybe I'm ending up getting an extra figure for free...  :tongue0024:

Walmart is getting dumber and dumber... they really can't handle exclusives, in the US and Canada alike...  :speechless-smiley-004:

Post by: Darth Cujo on May 28, 2021, 08:06:50 AM
My paploo also arrived in a too small box with a curled card. Thankfully curled and not creased. Slight dent to a corner too. It will be good enough and display nicely once the card is flattened out.

This is probably the second most annoying thing about exclusives with big retailers. #1 is lack of availability, but the retailer not knowing how to package these things is frustrating.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Wedge1021 on June 07, 2021, 01:03:53 PM
So remember how these Paploo's all showed up at our doors without any shipping notice or anything? Well today I got a shipping notice from WM that my order of 2 Paploo is on the way, due to arrive tomorrow. So what the heck is going on? Did they ship them all out before to everyone with processing the orders? Did we even get charged? Or are we being charged twice for double the number? Maybe now I'll at least get one without a bent up cardback. But I'll likely be returning the extras they ship. Strange. And still no sign of Leia or AT-ST Driver.

Edit: Package arrived today. One Paploo was completely crushed in the bottom of the same too-small box as before. The other was curled but no creases this time. So out of the 4 they sent me, at least I got 1 mint. I'll keep the crushed one to open. Now to check my cc bill to see if they charged for the double shipment. Either way, the extras can go back.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: Darth Cujo on June 07, 2021, 04:24:25 PM
Yeah this is confusing I got shipping notice way after the fact as well. I will also be checking my credit card bill.
Haven't received a duplicate package yet though.
And no sign of the other 2 of this wave.

Sure enough the duplicate paploo arrived on my doorstep this afternoon or evening. In an envelope. Surprisingly not too bad. A bit of wrinkling on the card.

Will have to see if they charged me twice...

Paploo arrived for pickup at the local store in a tidy little box.... that was about 50 percent of the right size. Cart bent nearly in half, so there is a lovely crease across the whole thing right above the figure bubble. I would have passed if it had been the only one in the store. Ah well.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: tarkin on June 13, 2021, 11:13:51 PM
I got two Paploo's (so far only paid for one) in two different deliveries. Both were in too small of a box, curved the card but otherwise in good shape.

Post by: jjreason on June 20, 2021, 05:17:23 AM
Leia & ATST Driver picked up, both curved but not creased. Placed pre-orders for the Tusken Raider (after reading JediPatrick's comments & actually looking at the figure - it will be a nice addition to the collection) and Offworld Jawa.

Leia Endor and the AT-ST Driver have been spotted on the pegs at almost every Walmart store of the Great Montreal Area I've been visiting in the past 2 weeks. At one spotI've seen several still hanging on the pegs in the past few days. If you need them and want to make sure you have a decent and mint cardback rather than wishing Walmart does care about this, the best would be to hit the road and visit nearby stores to be able to select the best ones...

Nope, haven't seen them - and I've been looking.  Then again, it could be one of those - 'came online for order at 3:04 AM and sold out at 3:06 AM' situations, so who knows.

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/lego-star-wars-skywalker-adventures-pack-66674-multicolor/6000203728850

It's just the 3 sets available elsewhere (inside this box are the 3 regular retail boxes) but the price ($100) is same as or cheaper than the sets on their own (depends where you buy it) and the mustafar set is already retired so not a bad deal. Exclusive to Walmart USA & Canada.

Thanks for the heads up. This is interesting, it's not listed as a preorder. So they are apparently taking orders and shipping out despite still not fulfilling pre-orders from May? I placed an order for the DS trooper to see if it ships before my preorder. If it does I won't be impressed. Another example of why hasbro shouldn't be giving these big box stores exclusives.

Unfortunately mine has "being processed" for months, they just update it daily.   Still nothing shipped.  Wondering if I should cancel the preorders and reorder?   :sign0065:


I just called Walmart about my order for the 3 exclusives figures (DSD, Luke and Tusken). The girl told me to cancel my order from may and reorder. She hadn't no explanation why my order isn't shipped yet. Luke is not in stock, she don't know when or if it will be in stock. When Hasbro will change his partner for the exclusives figures ? :sign0065:

 :snowtroopers:

This is why I reordered the DS droid, just in case. The tusken I'm not worried about as I have one on a vintage card. Luke I am worried about. Will submit another order for him if he comes in stock. It's terrible. I never did get the at-st driver sent to me. Thankfully I found him in store a couple weeks ago. Meanwhile they fulfilled my ewok order twice.  :sign0065: so I did get a free ewok, but that likely won't make up for what I'd have to pay to get endor luke from a third party seller. All I can do is shake my head.  :confused0024:

I've been checking a lot of stores lately, hoping to find them in stock so that I could just purchase them & cancel my preorders. Nothing yet. I would guess we'll see these figures in store before Christmas & hopefully just be able to cancel our orders.

It kind of says something when a company gets so big that they don't mind losing sales like this. If it's happening on these 3 items it's happening elsewhere. Guaranteed a small locally owned shop would be all over shipping out preorders asap, but that's not what these exclusives are about.

I re-ordered the Luke, DSD, and Tusken Raider a few days ago, and some carbonized shoretroopers yesterday...and my carbonized shoretroopers just shipped...first.

Then I got an email shortly after that my re-order of luke DSD and tusken raider will be delayed in having my order processed.

I won't go over the details of the messed up situation I was involved in with Walmart Customer Service with regards to my pre-orer. Let'sjust say Walmart Canada is the worst online retailer I've seen so far. Pre-orders do not exist for Walmart. They don't understand this concept and their system is not meant to fulfill them. At all. They will have the product in stock, allow new orders to be fullfilled BEFORE they will fullfill the preorders. For them, the pre-order showing the product as "out of stock" means they need to cancel the order and ask you to re-order the product once it is in stock. That's in their answering protocol and they won't deviate from this. I had all my preorders cancelled since last year, always the same pattern: if you dare calling their C.S., you always end up with a cancelled order.

Anyway, if you look at Stocktrack with the products UPC, you will find out that they have about 1200-1500 units for each TVC figure.

- 1556 x Luke Endor (UPC: 501099389518)
- 1459 x Death Star Droid (UPC: 501099389515)
- 1384 x Tusken Raider (UPC: 501099389520)

This is really not a lot for Canada. :-(

And they have absolutely none in stock in any store. In fact, if you carefully read the product info, just below the price: "This item is sold online only"

This means we might never find them in stores...

Also, the figures are said to arrive (Official release date? Delivered to customers?) on Tuesday Nov. 16th. Last Thusrday they said Monday Nov. 15th. They push the date. Which is not a good sign...

I've come to learn this means nothing either. I have seen multiple products "sold online only" in store.

At this point I only hope and expect nothing.

I haven't received any emails about my DSD/Luke/Tusken orders (I did 2 pre-orders, with 1 of each figure in each order, in the off chance that might help at least one set to not get crushed). Just checked their status online now, and both orders had been upgraded to "processing" within the last hour. So maybe they'll actually show up.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart.ca Updates
Post by: jjreason on November 14, 2021, 01:13:03 PM
I created a new order for Luke, DSD & Tusken which says processing. I have not yet canceled my preorders. No idea what's going to happen this week but hopefully one set or the other will make it's way into my hands.

So I had a similar situation happen to me.  When I read Jedipatrick statement I was 100% in agreement.  And then I get an email from Walmart stating that my goods are on the way.  But not for the Luke, DSD & Tusken, I was expecting but for (2) Captain Rex I ordered on November 8, 2020.    So go figure.

I doubt that it will show up on that date.  My re-order said that I'd receive my DSD, Tusken and Luke on Nov 16th (tomorrow).  I just got a "your shipment will be delayed" email a few minutes ago.

This stuff will show up in 2022, mark my words.

I got the email for Luke as well.

Stouffville walmart yesterday had the carbonized shoretrooper and a few vintage mauls. The shoretrooper is nice and it would be a nice Mando cardback but the foil cardback is so dark and reflective it just looks plain awful. And at the ridiculous price point any temptation quickly evaporated!

There was a bad batch black series guy on a bottom shelf... maybe lando... if it's not something I need/want my memory gets fuzzy.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Totally non star wars... saw a retro TV batman and the batmobile. Kinda cool but the batmobile looked and felt cheap. Cool for a toy, but didn't seem great for collectors. I'm happy with my wee little hot wheels one.  :)

One Walmart restocked the Walmart Exclusive Ewok and At-St Driver

One had all 4 Carbonized figures.  Seems like they had solid case of Shoretroopers and Gideon and a mixed case that had all 4 based on the qtys avialable.

Stocktrack showed that store had Rex, but all they had was Rampart.

The target delivery date keeps changing on the website: now they are said to arrive in stock on December 15th. Yesterday was on Dec. 14th, on Wednesday it was Dec.13th. You get the picture...

But on Stocktrack.ca, prices now appear, which didn't a few weeks before, so it's a good sign that they will probably show up in stores sooner than later?

For what it's worth, my most recent order shows an expected arrival date of January 13th, 2022. We shall see.

I cancelled my DSD when I found one in store. I still have an order for Luke & Tusken that advises the delivery date is Jan 13th. I have no hope - none- that they will make it, but I'm leaving the order out there just in case. If I am able to find the other 2 figures through another means I'll cancel it.

CMD store was sold out of the Tusken yesterday when I checked. To ship Luke alone to my house raised the cost of the figure up over $40 which even I can't justify. I'm going to keep looking & see if there is something else I can add to the order without making it over the top (Hot Toys.... do NOT do it Jim... do NOT...).

Huh, I'm surprised that the tusken is so popular. From the review I read it's a slightly improved retool. It was the least exciting of the three for me. I will likely skip the tusken as I have the vintage carded saga collection one. Happily I found a DSD on the weekend. Now I need the Luke. I may order it with a couple other items from toysnowman. They have luke and the dsd in stock.

So tired of incompetent retailers.

I sorted by price & chose 5 figures (Greef, Armorer, R1 Vader, Gideon & an extra Arvala Jawa). The total for the deal was less than $16 each including taxes seemed like it was too good to pass up. Let's see if they arrive mangled.... or even arrive at all.
