Thanks for the heads up. Dengar is already sold out and Lando "limited stock". I managed to get an order in for the two.

I created a shopping list with Dengar & Leia on it - hopefully the notices work & I'll get my order placed the next time they're briefly in stock.  :luke: :luke: :luke:

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 Walmart’s 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 that’s 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:
