    Well I went to 2 of my walmarts and as usual, nothing. You would think they weren’t doing some big weekend thing. What the heck is going on?

  • PeakOB1

    I passed by the electronics isle and the kid that was hosting the event looked so sad and clueless and not a soul was playing the game, they could have used an exclusive reason for star wars toy collectors to drop by today!

  • Indysolo007

    Epic fail weekend so far. No sign of anything so far

  • Dreadnox

    Assuming this was bs since I have seen no advertising for it.

    • josh pence

      if you look on walmart website it shows the schedule to play the game before it comes out but nothing on the items
