Not a bad price!

I would rather spend $9 for the multiple articulation figures at Walmart.

I broke down and ordered a second skiff for myself and another Zorii Bliss. Thanks for the heads up.

6" Jedi Luke was on for $19 at WalMart near my place this afternoon. I managed to find one with paint apps I like that also didn't have a bent lightsaber so I wound up splurging. I really liked that original figure as a kid & this is a beautiful version.

I don't think I like him. I feel kinda rude saying it but there it is. :(

I’m not a big fan of this figure either.

I purchased him to go along with the spirit Obi-wan.

Never got Spirit Obi Wan so Spirit Yoda's an easy pass.

Did get another Jedi Luke today at $19.  Now I can have one for the Ewok village look and the Jabba's palace look.

Just so you guys know, I came across remnants of the TVC Mando wave (VC164 Cara Dune, VC 165 Remnant Stormtrooper, VC166 Mandalorian and VC045 AOTC Clone Trooper) at 2 Walmart stores in Quebec.

Guess what figures were left on the pegs? Yes, the AOTC Clone Troopers. What a surprise.  :shakehead:

Luckily, I have other means to get what I need...

For anyone desperately hunting any of these down, here's UPC numbers:

630509924332 - VC164 Cara Dune
630509924318 - VC165 Remnant Stormtrooper
630509924325 - VC166 The Mandalorian
630509924349 - VC45 Clone Trooper (AOTC)

Yakface keeps an up-to-date list of UPC numbers here: https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2019/...dpci-sku-list/
Good to keep in your bookmarks

And to check stock at your local stores, go to StockTrack.ca, select the Walmart tab, and enter the UPC. The results aren't foolproof but it'll give you an idea of what's around.

TRU and EB Games uses SKU numbers, which is useful for exclusives and standalone items, but not so helpful for regular waves.

EDIT: I've heard that for WalMart on StockTrack, if you search the UPC of a regular-wave figure, the quantities it shows are actually for all the figures in the wave. So not really helpful if you're looking for the Mandalorian specifically, but may give you an idea of which stores have gotten the wave in yet.

Had to go out for groceries today anyway, so I stopped in at my local Walmart.  I’ve been trying to limit going out (like many of us, I assume), since my parents are a bit more on the frail side (in their 70s) and rely on me for their groceries and such and I’m worried about passing something on to them.

Toy aisle gave my heart a jump when I actually saw a Vintage card in the aisle... but it was a lone clone trooper. I know it’s a small thing in the grand scheme of it all, but man... left feeling so down about missing out on the wave. I feel stupid about letting it bother me; I think it’s just the general bleakness of everything in the world right now and the hope for small joys.

In any event, I hope everyone is taking care of themselves and their loved ones. I don’t think I’ll be doing much toy hunting these days given the nature of things, but if I do find anything I’ll let you folks know.

Stay safe.

I wonder if later this year, when everything hopefully finally settles down and we get back to some semblance of normalcy, there will be a rash of toy waves that will end up at discount retailers. Either because of screwed up supply chains, decrease in ordering, cut backs on spending... or just "moving on" to the next wave. It's happened before, and that's without a pandemic happening. So maybe one day you'll be walking the aisles of Winners or Dollarama and see those Mandalorian TVC figures in droves for dirt cheap?

One can dream, can't we? Looking on the bright side as far as our insignificant hobby goes!

My bet is that these new waves of figures might never make it to Canada at all. Retail stores here will just skip these. It's a case of Force Majeure, I'm sure stores can invoke that to bail out on their supply contract with Hasbro.

For the Mando wave, if you want these figures, grab them now when you see them. They won't last long. I got my share, they are just hitting the pegs at WM, but with the actual crisis, it could take months before you see all there is of this wave. The next waves might be very difficult to find... :(

Popped into Walmart this morning to find one lonely clone trooper. I asked a worker if they had more since stock track showed 12. They scanned it and saw 12 in their store system. And they could not find any. They looked high and low and found nothing. So I bought nothing. 😕
