I canceled my preorder... I think this one has $29.99 written all over it.

And that's the crossroads of collecting... It's either worth it or it isn't ultimately.
I think Walmart was always far more interested in getting that collector foot traffic into the stores, rather than making this exclusive subline easy to acquire online. I know that I made plenty of trips to Walmart without being successful getting any Black Series 3.75" figures of the 6" Battlefront Shocktrooper. Those trips numbered at least 10 to 1 in terms of number of trips to the number of times that I was able to get the figures. WalMart is playing those odds that in those trips where you don't find the exclusive you may buy something else. And it does happen.
I hear people on wanting to order these online, but that's not why Walmart signed up for an exclusive. They want you go into the store to buy these and hopefully buy something else. That's one of the big draws of having an exclusive.
I think we're also not going to get a lot in the way of vehicles. There are really only a few other vehicles in the mix that are feasible, and most are fairly big.
-Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle
-First Order Stormtrooper Transport
-First Order Standard TIE Fighter
Sounds like new figures are hitting now?!?
SWAN Facebook page is reporting on a new figure found at Walmart - Resistance Rey!
Not posting the pic because the figure has potential SPOILERS, so click link at your own risk!!!
I'm sure they are following the Marvel formula. Kathleen Kennedy and the executive producers have an idea on where the story will ultimately go, and they give direction to the writers and directors on how to get there.
