Walmart Clearances Underway for Stock Refresh

Various Walmart stores in my area, and around the country, have started slashing prices on Black Series figures (6″ – $9.84, 3.75″ $5.84) and vehicles like the U-Wing down to $19.97. Hopefully this means new product that has been backlogged for sometime will make its way to shelves for the home release of Rogue One in a couple weeks. Click on though for a few quick pics.

    3.75″ SA Jyn? That’s nuts. RO figures from that line are impossible to get in my area. I’d actually like to get the U-wing and TIE Striker for a decent price. Now I wish I didn’t get the TRU two-pack with the Cassian that comes with the U-wing. I just assumed I’d never get that ship. I usually have bad luck finding ships on clearance. I wanted a TFA Falcon last year but there was no way I was going to pay $140 for it. I think it’s a neat toy, but it should’ve cost $50 at most. I finally found one at Walmart for a very reasonable $35 last month. Now I just need to get an opener, which will probably never happen this late in the game. In 2017 a toy that’s a year and a half old is ancient.

      How bad do you want them ? I got a ton of them here ( Jyn’s ). I went to 2 this morning, and got a couple of figs I was eyeing when they dropped to $10, and they have both of those veh’s for $20, and a bunch of them.

    I swear this and the reports of supposed $89 close-outs on the AT-ACTs have been a coordinated cruel prank on the fan community.

  • GIBBS v2

    I’m done buying everything on week one. It might actually be more fun being a little patient and hunting deals.

    • CT-7567

      Agreed. I feel like I got burned on a lot of things. On the first FF I got the vehicles. After seeing the clearance prices I decided not to get them for Rogue Friday. So far I’ve found one Hera’s A-wing for $7, so I’m glad I waited. I also found the TFA Falcon for $35(a cool TOY for that price) and the FO SF Speeder Bike for $5. These new vehicles are cheap and not close to being worth the MSRP. Normally it’s not healthy for a line to wait for clearance, but with these cheap, overpriced vehicles it’s the only way to go.

      • GIBBS v2

        Totally agree and I am that guy who is there when the doors open anxious to drop hundreds of dollars. Another thing that happens, Hasbro drops literally everything in the line on day one. I basically buy everything I want and what they even intend to sell me on day one. Other than a couple waves of figures there is nothing else to look forward too for the rest of the year.

        Searching for discounted vehicles can replace the “hunt”.

  • In what universe does a store have not one, but TWO Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leaders on the pegs? Much less, two Squad Leaders on CLEARANCE? I ain’t even seen one in the wild.

    • Logan

      I was lucky enough to have seen 2. The other 6 I saw were in someone else’s hands, lol. I’m perplexed just as you are. What area is this? Sure not LA or San Diego.

      • No it isn’t. In San Diego I’ve only seen Krennic from this wave. Not even 3PO.

        • Logan

          The Krennic wave wasn’t easy to get. The Scariff Squad Leader was the one to go first. I wish I could walk into a Walmart and find these insane prices. The U-wing is still at $39.97 and I see reports here of finds at $11. These prices are not in LA Walmarts yet.

      The alternate reality in which Rogue One bombed at the box office!

      • Brian Beck

        they have to make room for all the La La Land action figures 😉

    • CT-7567

      Ikr? Took me months to find two. Great figure, but I’m starting to regret getting into 6″ because they are so HTF it takes all the fun out of it. The RO 5poa were all difficult to get at first, but they eventually show up. Even with the Thrawn wave, I was able to find two of each with some time and patience. 6″ TBS I can’t find anything past the wave the Scarif Squad Leader is in. I saw one Leia but passed because of the horrible head sculpt. The sad thing is that the 6″ figures have been getting better. K2, Deathtrooper and even the pegwarming Jyn and Cassian are fine figures. I really like the Krennic wave. The Revan wave looks great, but it’s impossible to get at retail and I prefer not ordering online. The four new 40th figures look good too, as well as Leia with the improved head. I wonder if those will show up in stores. I watched your review of Leia and she looks great. I wish they could scale that figure down to 3.75″.

    Hopefully this helps because ain’t finding jack crap in my area.

    • SID

      Same.

    • Barney Dunn

      not sure where all this merchandise is. The only thing ever on the pegs at my Walmart and Target are a good half dozen 6-inch Finns, General Hux, and even a few young Obi Wan from 2014, always tons of Titanium Helmets.

    • CT-7567

      Have you found the Thrawn wave yet? I still haven’t seen the Jedha pack. I just need that and the he last four figures and I’m good on RO 5poa. I still need the Walmart Scarif Trooper and another Cassian. What do you think of the Cassian that comes with the U-wing?I got him in the TRU two-pack and, despite the SA version being way better, I think it’s a cool 5poa figure. Took me a few minutes to figure out how to get the gun to fit in the holster snugly. I was expecting a hole in the bottom of the holster like the other Cassian. The JTA review of the figure says it’s a loose fit, which I hate because it can lead to a loss of the gun. After a while I realized the gun has to be placed in at an angle because there’s a hole in the figure’s leg to accommodate it.

    And here we go again…. It seems ever since TFA (aka Disney) that clearances are happening all the time. One after another… After another… From retail chain to retail chain.

    Funny I just found a single 6″ exclusive scariff trooper for “full price”.

  • Matthew Ruch

    U Wing is down to $11 in my area

  • Rykrof_Enloe

    That newer stuff did surface in my area a bit, but easily sold out at full price.

    Anyways, I hit two Walmarts on the way home… One had the rollback prices, the other did not (checked with scanners).

  • Mike Leathers

    Same here, in Arizona, we didn’t get any of that and no clearances of anything that I can find.

    • Howlrunner

      What part of Arizona do you search? I live in tempe.

      • Mike Leathers

        Mostly in Gilbert and Chandler and a few in Phoenix, but I have not tried in Tempe. Which one do you go to? I only know of the Rural and Southern(?) store. I’ll have to check it out

        • Howlrunner

          The tempe and southern one has acruelly been the only one I’ve found a Jyn in disguise from the new wave. I look all over phoenix. The walmarts in Scottsdale were the ones that use to get the new waves. Haven’t had any luck recently

  • Dave Harding

    wow some of those never even made it to the shelves in my area
