Another rumor of ours that was officially confirmed today was the Walmart Exclusive Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure for the Vintage Collection. As you can see in the above shot from @JustinaLaSalata, it looks excellent!

Hasbro’s making playsets great again with the Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set coming exclusively to Walmart. The playset also includes carded versions of that jerk Ree-Yees and the Han Solo with Carbonite Block.
Thanks to the social media accounts for Justin LaSalata, Galactic Hunter/Adam Pawlus, Star Wars Action News, JediNews, YodasNews, Victoria’s Cantina and Matt Guzy for their on-site coverage of the Hasbro panel and presentation at Toy Fair 2019.
There have been reports of Walmart stores receiving more shipments of the 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper recently, and this morning I saw the same thing.
If you’re looking to add to your ranks, it might worth your time to stop by your local Walmart to see if they have received new shipments (or are receiving for the first time). Happy hunting!
Finally, Walmart has corrected their inflated pricing for their exclusive TVC Mimban Stormtrooper to $12.99. Now if they could just restock them.
Update: Using the Walmart.com chat feature, I was able to confirm that when the product is in stock, price adjustments can be made to your orders for the lower price point until April 9, 2019.
After spending a few hours searching this morning, I managed to stumble across a new listing for an unannounced Vintage Collection figure: Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise). Perfect for the upcoming Barge and rumored Tatooine Skiff, right? No word yet if this is exclusive to Walmart, but based on its UPC, that is not out of the realm of possibility. Maybe we’ll learn more about this at Toy Fair next month. The pertinent info has been added to our Master List of UPCs and SKUs.
If you’ve been at your local Walmart lately, you may have noticed that the toy aisles are resetting, clearing out the old, and making room for the new.
Among the clearance items you will likely find are products from Solo: A Star Wars Story, and you might want to scan them because the marked clearance price may not reflect the full markdown.

While still “no longer available”, Walmart has updated the listing for the Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure to include a carded shot but also, comically, still shows the crochet thread as the primary image.
Thanks to Jason M. for the update.
UPDATE: back in stock
Walmart’s exclusive TVC Mimban Stormtrooper is finally seeing some distribution thanks to them being in stock online, though at a pretty high markup.
Personal Note: Mine arrived today, and damn what a fine figure it is! Hopefully Hasbro and Disney are taking notes that great army builders like this should be packed heavily in basic assortments as opposed to being an exclusive. And just imagine how much better the TVC retail landscape would look if Wave One of TVC had two of these packed into each case instead of repacks of Rey and Jyn?
