Enrico writes in with a new store find today revealing the app-enabled Smart R2-D2.

I came across these at a local Walmart in San Diego this morning. I tried to buy the 12″ Rebels Vader but wasn’t allowed to. The remote R2-D2 was a surprise item. I haven’t seen it in any advance catalog. Looking at the box, it’s controlled via an app on Android and iPhone. Sorry I didn’t get pictures of the box.

You can download the app now to control the Bluetooth Smart R2-D2 via iTunes app store.

UPDATE: Smart R2-D2 is exclusive to Walmart

TRU Exclusive 6″ Hovertank Pilot (with Sticker)

Since the  6″ Black Series Hovertank Pilot leaked yesterday, people questioned if it was really an exclusive to Toys”R”Us as the packaging was missing the silver foil sticker. Now, eBay auctions have sprouted up and the sticker is present on those. This is not too dissimilar with what happened with the Exclusive First Order Snowtrooper Officer last year.

Thanks to Corey from First Order Transmissions/The Cargo Hold for the heads-up.
