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

It’s been a while since we’ve reported one of these but with all of the reports of the Walmart Exclusive 6″ Black Series Mimban Stormtroopers FINALLY hitting stores en masse, I’ve noticed a variant. The version from Canada (Toys”R”US) looks to have silver accents painted on it while the Walmart versions in the U.S. feature a plain, unpainted blaster.
