Title says it all.
Has anyone heard anything about these making it to our country?

I'd also like to know. I asked a while back in another thread and got no response. The only thing I've seen so far is the Hoth board game on amazon.ca.

Apparently no, the retro figures were not part of the WM Canada plans, but this store has been known to surprise... or not. We'll just have to wait and see, but if I were you I'd try to find other means to get them...

The Retro Hoth Gameboard with Luke Snowspeeder is supposed to come to Canada, yes. This is not supposed to be an exclusive...

If Walmart Canada is not carrying them then it should be open to someone else to carry in Canada.  Is hasbro Canada even bringing them in? Could we get them from a Canadian online retailer?

Or do we have to hope the Walmart US exclusive window closes and they become more widely available and perhaps we can order from a US online retailer?

Yep. Superstore & TRU, both in good numbers if I recall. Won't stop Fett from being sought after but I don't believe anything was short packed to create any real chase last time.

I never saw a single one at my TRU. It's possible they got 1 case at one point and sold out right away. I don't think they were super-widespread distributed. Some stores more than others, and probably not enough quantity in the country for a restock.

Wedge.  Here in Whitby, it seemed all the Superstores got 2 of each figure and TRU did get cases in but I don't there were much more than a couple cases sent.   Derek might know different, but that is how I recall them.   I thought we would see more later on at Christmas but I never saw any more.

I saw the first wave at Superstore as well.
Never saw them once at the only Toysrus in my town.

Tru received one case of 6 figures per store, And maybe one reorder (April/may 2019).  SuperStore seemed to get two boxes per store as CJ mentioned. (June/July I think).
I just hope these come to Canada in someway this year.

Ah, well, with just 1 TRU and 1 Superstore in my entire region, that would explain why I never saw any! Luckily I get my cases elsewhere, though not sure yet how I'll get the ESB ones.

Interesting read today regarding the ESB Retros in the States.  Looks like Covid is going to be responsible for a delay.

I can confirm that UPC 501099368721 is accurate for Walmart on Stocktrack.ca for these. Only 1 store in my area is showing these as In Stock, all others are Not Sold. The figures are being put out in a big cardboard island display, together with Ghostbusters Retro figures. So probably just a few stores for now getting these as promo items.

Last night my local store showed 42 in stock, so 7 cases. I was going to head out that night but it just didn't work out. This morning, the stock read 37. My heart sank - somehow I just knew - and sure enough when I got there at noon, my suspicions were confirmed. Not a single Fett left in the display! But all other were still there in full quantity. Some @#$% scalper beat me to them. So I picked out the other 5 for myself, and thought "But the stock only went down by 5 this morning, maybe there was another somewhere... I'll check the toy aisle". And haha! There was a lone Fett hanging on a random peg in the Star Wars section that he missed! So thankfully got a full set (painfully pricey at $17.97 each), but really sucks for others in my area who will be missing a Fett from their set now.
