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 just got a shipping delayed email on my supposedly in stock re-order of the DSD. It's still showing as in stock on the walmart site too.

Gotta love walmart.

I have been charged for my reorder but they haven't been shipped yet. aren't they supposed to only charge once the item ships?

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.

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 just placed an order today for the Luke, Tuskan, Ewok, and DSD. It says they are to be shipped on November 19. Time will tell.

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.
