Hmm, let's see:

No TVC Rey(Island Journey)
No TVC Mimban Stormtrooper
No TVC Tie Fighter with Pilot
No BS 6" Kylo Ren Throne Room
No BS 6" Shocktrooper
No BS 3.75" Prototype Boba Fett/Sandtrooper/Pondo Baba/Tuskan Raider

But, yeah, let's just keep giving Walmart exclusives...

I'm so excited that the Walmart exclusive is something I have 0 desire to get!

Now those target exclusives, they look sweet.

So true Neo!
Walmart Canada never brings in the Star Wars exclusives.
But if I have to purchase this on EBay from the states, so be it.
This is a must have for me.  :star-wars-smiley-008:

I wouldn't count on it. neospike stated it quite painly, all exclusives for the past few years have not showed here at Walmart Canada except the TFA X-Wing Fighter and the TLJ Exclusive Tie Fighter. Both were put on clearance at 7$ in the end. To top that list, we never got the WM Exclusive Solo Kessel Mine Cardboard Playset either.

Before that, there was a Jabba's Throne Set (http://www.rebelscum.com/TVCexJabbasThrone.asp), also a Walmart Exclusive, that we never got here.

So my guess: we will NEVER see this set in Canada.

Let's hope Walmart proves me wrong. I really wish for that. I'd be the first truly happy. But until it happens, I'll make sure to have my ground covered by any means possible...

We did actually get that set here in Canada, I remember the day I bought it. But maybe you guys did not get it in Quebec - I know lots of exclusives never showed up there around that time. I know I helped DarthMink a lot with getting those.

Wal-mart Canada was actually pretty good about getting the exclusives back then. I believe the beginning of the end was The Phantom Menace 3D sub-line. That did not show up at all here if memory serves, and after that WM skipped a lot of exclusives (not just Star Wars ones either).

And from reading the US sites, it's not that much better down there!

I was able to pre-order 2 palace sets from walmart.com 4 weeks ago, but my order's status is now "delayed"... anyone else in same situation? Any retailers you know of who offer it in Canada?

Since walmart.com won't ship to Canada, I'd also like to know how I can get one of these. I haven't seen it online anywhere else.

Can I just suggest that anyone who would like to see the TVC Jabba's Palace playset and TVC Skiff Lando come up to Canada, fill out your ToysRUs surveys! 

You get the chance to fill out a survey every time you make a purchase at TRU, include the transaction number when filling it out (to get a chance at winning $500).  I've been using this to inform TRU HQ that I'd like them to bring up these two Walmart USA exclusives to Canada.  I'd suggest that we all do this in order to prove to TRU that there's a market for these items up here. 

Hopefully both the Target exclusive DS Luke and TVC Stormtrooper Han will sell well for TRU so that they can snag the Walmart exclusives too.

I'm the the same boat with my order of 1 - still says "Preparing Order" after 24 days. I've seen others report that their order was similarly stuck, and that customer service told them it was stuck and would be cancelled. What an awesome system! So I'm expecting mine to cancel as well, probably at the 30 day mark. Luckily a buddy's order went through and he had it shipped to my US mailbox. He'd ordered an extra for me so I'm covered at least now. However, I know there's lots of other collectors here in Canada (and even the US) who I believe are S.O.L. at this point. They're out of stock and I'm sure will remain so forever now. Unless Hasbro decides to do another production run. The only place to get these anymore will be from re-sellers, the used market, or scalpers.

I read online there is still to be stock in stores in the fall. So there may still be hope. I can't imagine supply would dry up this quickly. Hoping that patience will be rewarded.

I don't believe these will be available from Walmart in Canada or from online dealers in Canada. As DarthCujo said, Hasbro USA indicated they will be available in store later this year, they said they underestimated the popularity of the set and were surprised by the rapid preorders they received.
If you missed the preorder or they messed up your preorder, probably best to wait and not accept scalpers' prices.

I just re-read my post here and I must not have noticed the figures were carded at the time.  Of course I want them.  But I think patience will work out here.

I'm hoping to get a TIE Fighter for $19 USD - from the sounds of it that shouldn't be too hard.  Hopefully (Eventually) we'll get the same with this playset.

I HATE exclusives.
