Walmart BS Clone Wars Exclusives
« on: October 20, 2020, 07:56:03 PM »

It's because of a-h*les like this eBay seller why I cant find the BS Clone Wars Exclusives at retail in my area. He's selling 12 of the Mando Super Commandos which is exactly what most stores are receiving as stock.

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Star-Wars-Black-Series-Mandalorian-Super-Commando/184492118868?hash=item2af4965354:g:~WUAAOSwTmVfivUj

This is new product that just came out at retail, and it's not a product that we all have the equal opportunity of pre-ordering as Walmart's online pre-order window lasts only an hour or two.

Don't buy from these scalpers!!!...and he has crappy feeback also.

I agree.  Honestly, I only want the blue Mando. I just can't be bothered fighting the scalpers for these so I just won't even collect them. If I find the blue Mando, I will get it but if I don't, then so be it. I save some money.

It's extra frustrating because they can never lose on the deal. Even if they don't sell them, WM will take them back & worst case scenario all they're losing is the time it took to find the toys.

Guys like that don't make this hobby any easier.  They've been around as long as I can remember though, they're going to scalp and impulsive collectors are going to buy. The only ways to really deal with that problem are to be better than them at finding these guys and/or set your sights to be in it for the long haul - if you're willing to wait a year or two you are likely to find things at a more reasonable price.

The Walmart I went to might not have had any of these figures, but it did have seedless grapes in Mandalorian packaging. Not making that up.

My friend in Dallas found a set for himself.  He's keeping his pre-order though so when he gets that and I haven't found what I want here yet, then he's gonna sell me the pre-ordered ones at cost.  Too bad these cost more in the US than they do in Canada.

They were good! One of the things that has always fascinated me is how Star Wars can be found in licensed versions of so many things, not just toys. So I had to pick up a bag of Mando grapes when I saw them. May display the bag empty or with fake grapes in it, need to decide later on that.
