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.
Entertainment Earth has added a few (former) Black Series and Walmart Vintage and Force Link Exclusives to their site. Head on over to pick up 6″ Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton), Zuckuss, TVC TIE Fighter and/or Kessel Mine Escape Playset.
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?
Walmart has started to receive wave 1 of the new Star Wars: Resistance figures from Hasbro. The case includes 2 of each figure (Kaz, Torra Doza, Commander Pyre, Major Vonreg, Synara San, and First Order Stormtrooper). Brandon W. on Facebook reports them being found in Kentucky.
Walmart is currently offering their exclusive Kessel Mine playset on Rollback for $19.99.
Rey’s journey stateside has taken a southernly jaunt and can be found at Walmart in Mexico. Thanks to Mijail for the images and tag on Twitter
Hot on the official announcement of the Galaxy of Adventures series of shorts, Walmart has begun setting the first wave of Hasbro figures here in Minnesota. Click on through to check out Darth Vader, Jedi Luke, Chewbacca, and R2-D2. And if you’re looking to pick these up you can get the assortment SKU from our master list of UPCs and the DPCIs. Stores are receiving them via aisle shippers in an assortment of 32 (8 of each figure ).
Thanks to Philip G. for the images.
