I looked into this for you and are you sure you are using the correct number?
The one i used is this 501099368721
just used random postal code for your area.
one store has 14 on hand.
Yeah the store that shows 14 in stock when I search is in Scarborough.  Not near me. All others are in Toronto, mississauga, Oakville and Milton.  Barrie showed up earlier. But literally nothing in York region. I live within about 10 km from 4 walmarts and none of them showed stock.

Out of curiosity I changed amount of stores to 1000. Looks like east coast has received displayers. No figs in Alberta yet.

Well I've found them in Winnipeg, there was only 1 fett left so I was still able to make my set of 6. Sucks for other people trying to make complete sets though.

Nothing in Saskatchewan yet, at least at the stores I've been to. Keep hoping to see the aisle island chock full of goodness, but all I get is disappointment.  :'(

The Aisle Island came out in North Walmart in Regina. Someone posted it and an hour later, all of the Yodas and Bobas were gone. An hour later, it was empty. But they did still have the Real Ghostbusters.

Totally missed the post. Not looking for them for me anyhow, but I always hope to see the stuff in person. Maybe Harbour Landing got theirs too & I just missed it.

I got mine last week. Haven't played it yet but cracked it open. I do love the look of the game. The cover has that great vintage photo design and the board has some stylin art.

My Luke had some slight wrinkling below the peg hole. So the card isn't mint but good enough. I will likely try and get another if it goes on sale somewhere to open one. The Luke looks great and I love he came with an ascension gun.

My Luke (Snowspeeder) has creasing from the peg hole down the centre of the card as well. This happened with my Tarkin from Escape From Death Star Game. The creasing seems to be a factory defect for both games.

Yup, same here. Must be from the machine that inserts them into the packaging.
Doing a quick search of them on ebay - there's several honest sellers that highlighted a photo of the problem.
Everyone else used stock photos or did not highlight it (some I'm convinced look photo-shopped as well).
Not sure I would bother trying to get a mint one Darth Cujo, they're probably all like that.

Thanks for the input guys. Im not surprised that it seems to be a consistent thing. Unfortunate. It's still not that terrible so I will likely jump on a second to keep one on card if I can get one on sale. I'm hoping these will show up in relatively decent numbers like the first one did. And go on sale like the first one did.

Looking forward to playing the game with my daughter. She's not really into star wars but she likes board games. And lord knows we are looking for new ways to be entertained these days.

I came close to getting one too, but just went to my game shelf and opened up the one I still have from 80's. My daughters saw me open it up and asked if we could play. Sigh. I was so happy I forgot all about retro figure.
