The same "Walmart Exclusive" vehicles that are at Chapters-Indigo are now online at walmart.ca:

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/starwars-large-6-vehicle-figure-imperial-troop-transport-wave-1-grey/PRD6U7QR02YVK9Z

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/starwars-deluxe-vehicle-8-vehicle-figure-boba-fetts-ship-wave-1-grey/PRD20OW7I285WBC

Again I did not see a listing for the Arvala-7 Razor Crest.

Like Chapters-Indigo there are also listings for the Series 2 large vehicles: LAAT, Jango's Starship and Havoc Marauder. All vehicles are listed as online only and the prices on the vehicles are practically the same as Chapters-Indigo .97 vs .99.

I ordered a Troop Transport from Chapters-Indigo and it came in US English only packaging.

Received an email last night indicating that TVC ARC Commander Havoc had arrived at the local Walmart and I picked it up this morning.

Received an email from Chapters-Indigo indicating the "Walmart exclusive" Boba Fett Starship and Imperial Troop Transport were in stock and available for order. The 3 deluxe Series 2 vehicles are also in stock: LAAT, Jango Fett's Starship and Havoc Marauder.

All these vehicles are listed as online exclusives.

Found Imperial Gunner VC232 & Bespin security guard Elder Spinoza VC233 at my local Walmart. @ 22,47$/each.
...
My walmart is full of stormtroopers

The local Walmart had 2 cases of VC231 Stormtrooper and VC234 R2-D2 out. There was also a case of BS Imperial Officer (Dark Times) out which on the price scanner was coming up as BS CC Boba Fett - 42.97. Also had the deluxe TVC Incinerator Trooper w/Grogu.

walmart.ca has an entry for the Imperial Officer which is a pre-order shipping by July 1 at the 42.97 price: https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/star-wars-the-black-series-imperial-officer-dark-times-toy-6-inch-scale-star-wars-andor-collectible-figure-kids-ages-4-and-up-multi/PRD12B2CDM9AWHA.

Edit: add walmart.ca info

Blind boxes - 9.99/8.99.

My nephew found an interesting listing at Chapters-Indigo: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/toys/starwars-large-6-vehicle-figure/191726416272-item.html?ikwid=star+wars+jazwares&ikwsec=Home&ikwidx=4#algoliaQueryId=4ba27332da9291db1a740f7a6b279732.

The title, pictures and UPC correspond to the "Walmart exclusive" Troop Transport. The about description and dimensions however refer to the 3.75" TT. From the price I would assume it's the Jazware's version.

A further search shows a listing for the "Walmart exclusive" Boba Fett's Starship: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/toys/starwars-deluxe-vehicle-8-vehicle/191726428800-item.html?ikwidx=1&ikwsec=Home&ikwid=star%20wars%20jazwares#algoliaQueryId=4ba27332da9291db1a740f7a6b279732.

I did not find a listing for the other single vehicle Walmart exclusive - Razor Crest (Arvala-7).

There are also listings for 3 other large Series 2 vehicles: LAAT, Havoc Marauder and Jango Fett's Starship: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/home/search/?keywords=star%20wars%20jazwares#internal=1.

The list price for Jango's ship is higher than TRU's price which is a new high (low?). None of these vehicles are in stock or sold in stores so it remains to be seen if Chapters-Indigo will get any of them in.

A correction to my previous post. According to the guide at Jazwares: https://jazwaresv2.s3.amazonaws.com/media/resources/SW-MGS_Collectors_Guide_Series_1.pdf I didn't actually find a "chase" vehicle but instead a rare vehicle.

Rare vehicles are 1 of 15000 and non-blind box vehicles have a silver "RARE 1 OF 15000) sticker. Series 1 Rare vehicles are:

0006 Cobb Vanth's Speeder
0007 Speeder Bike (Imperial Remnant) with IG-11
0012 AT-ST Raider
0017 Outland Tie Fighter.

Chase vehicles are 1 of 5000 and non-blind box vehicles have a gold "CHASE 1 OF 5000" sticker. Series 1 Chase vehicles are:

0008 Speeder Bike (Imperial Remnant) with Scout Trooper and Grogu
0013 Tie Fighter (White)
0018 Jedi Luke Skywalker's X-Wing.

Saw Series 1 blind boxes at another Party City and they were clearly marked as being on clearance for 4.49.

Saw a Series 2 vehicle #0044 Jango Fett's Starship at a couple of TRUs - 49.99, currently on sale for 34.97. Also available on line.

I also found a chase vehicle at the local TRU - #0017 Outland Tie Fighter w/Moff Gideon. One of the annoying things about the chase vehicles other than the chase factor is that they've numbered them as if they're part of the regular line.

Party City has Series 1 blind boxes - 7.99 although the local Party City has them on sale for 4.49 but not advertised as such.

Chapters/Indigo are also carrying some of the vehicles. I saw the Millennium Falcon - 64.99 and Seriss 1 blind boxes at an Indigo. The MF is also on line.

I have seen the Walmart exclusive single vehicles (not in Canadian stores) and pictures of the 2 Walmart exclusive 3-packs and the Amazon US exclusive 4-pack Trench Run. None of the multi-packs contains an exclusive vehicle. All of these exclusives come in US English only packaging. Given this and Series 2 vehicles starting to show up I don't think we'll see the Walmart exclusives in Canada. At least not in Canadian packaging.

In Canada there have been 2 different packaging variations. The first which is most common is a bilingual front with a multilingual back/bottom. The second is an English only front and bottom with a bilingual sticker on the back or side. I've only seen this packaging at Gamestop and it's for all the vehicles including blind boxes except the MF which is in standard packaging.

The chase Outland Tie was in bilingual/multilingual packaging except the 1 of 15000 sticker which was in English only.

Epic Game Store gives away a free PC game every week and currently for Xmas they're giving away one a day.

https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/

I forgot to post about this when they were giving away Star Wars: Squadrons for free.

There is a Mac version of the Epic Games Store but I don't know if they're giving away free Mac games.

Lego / Re: amazon.ca LEGO sale

Just a note to be aware some of the sale prices are for frustration free packaging which means AFAIK that amazon just slaps a shipping label on the box and ships it out so the odds the box will come damaged are rather high.

The Justifier is on sale for 30% off in frustration free packaging - 146.99 https://www.amazon.ca/LEGO-Justifier-Building-Buildable-Featuring/dp/B09XT7316Z/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2KF5ZR838OWLR&keywords=lego%2Bjustifier&qid=1671293419&s=toys&sprefix=lego%2Bjustifier%2Ctoys%2C137&sr=1-4&th=1.

Edit: That Justifier sale didn't last too long. Now only 10% off.
