An interesting discussion about wanting to get foot traffic in the store, but the exclusives just don't work well out my way in SoCal. Here are two examples:

1) We never got wave 2 and the only reason I got wave 3 was because the Hasbro rep at my closest store found two cases sitting on a shelf in back that was not designated for stocking.

2) Monday took my out of my usual area and I stopped in a Walmart in Redondo Beach to check it out. The SW section was gone! They reset with one peg for SW. It was labeled Rebel Assist, had the two newer rebel figures on the peg (TFA packaging,) AND it was in the middle of the die cast section.  ??? I asked the toy person with the scanner in the action figure isle where the SW section was and she said, predictably, that they weren't carrying SW anymore. Now, you and I have heard this every year from WM since 1996. It's never true. This does't happen ever at Target.

WM is such a bad choice for exclusives for SW. At least where I live.

Busted mine out. Have no idea where to put it.  :P

Pretty awesome though.

I'd love it if they could find a way to send this line somewhere other than Wal-Mart... hell, give it to Entertainment Earth, or make them HTS exclusives.

Something I can order online is all I ask for...

Can't disagree with a word of this statement.

I cracked these open and I have to say that it's so hard to believe that the main line is now 5 POA. These are just so nicely done that it makes me strongly consider dumping the 5 POA line and focus on the Black series.

Found these on the pegs myself as I was picking up my on-line order ironically.

I found the new TIE pilot and Resistance Trooper this morning.

This wave completely skipped SoCal as far as I can tell. Wave 3 has been found. But in general, the WM's out here just aren't getting any stock. Maybe 2 stores out of 15. Not even finding remnants.

Went up on WM.com again. Managed to score one before they sold out in no time flat.

I lucked out and scored wave 3 with the help of a friend. Wave 2 totally skipped out here. If I get lucky again, I may have to pick up another set to trade.  ::)

No sign at all in SoCal. They showed up the other day on line for about three minutes before selling out. Had one in my cart, but couldn't complete the purchase because they went so fast.

No sign of these in SoCal, and my buddies and I are looking pretty dutifully.

In all my years of collecting, I have yet to observe a Black Friday that specifically debuted new SW product. Not even going to contemplate going out in that racket.

My guess that the Disney purchase is the main factor in our getting less for more situation. If you think about it, everything changed when Disney bought the property. Prices went up and the quality diminished. That's just the way Disney operates.

As far as I know, Disneyland has never had the D23 droid or the Holographic one.

I bought my Holographic one at Disneyland in June.

Well, I was lucky enough to get to order one the other day on Kmart.com since it was shown in stock, but was unlucky to have my order canceled today.  >:(
