In what should not be a surprise to many, Walmart stores are starting to clearance the Forces of Destiny line as part of their “post-Christmas” clearance binge. Check your local store if you were looking to acquire these.
Personal Note: I thought this line was doomed as soon as it was announced. And I rarely see anyone pay attention to them in the stores (I do casually observe other customers). This felt like a “forced niche” item that Disney pushed, and I would feel this line has fallen short of retailer expectations to this point. For those that do like it, or have children that enjoy these, I hope the line continues for years to come. But I personally can’t see it having legs for an extended time; unless it’s marketed better and perhaps the product moved to the store section the audience these are targeted at frequent most.
