It doesn't matter where or how many of these showed up for me; I haven't seen a SAGA figure hanging on a peg hook in 2 weeks and rest assured I won't be seeing VOTC for a month at least.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true.  Thank you.

The Tusken looks ridiculous. Dang softgoods. >:( I'm guessing it's removable, so I would think he'll look OK without it. :-\

Yeah it's just so bulky. I wish I had been the one to find those figures at that Walmart... if so, I'd open them, and take as many detailed pics as possible to answer these questions, I really want to see what the Tusken looks like without that cloak on.

I don't mind the outer robe... I'll chalk up the extra bulky look to the Hasbro reps. not being able to display the figure very well... comparable to trying to dress a corpse - it just doesn't look right.

Wow, talk about some awesome finds.  I can't wait until these start showing up more.  I wasn't overly excited about them at first, but now that they have been sighted, I can't wait to get them.

I think it's safe to say that someone, who's maybe not a member of a SW forum, scoffed up the rest of that wave and left a pair of Greedo's from that 1 case that was put out behind.

According to the thread at www.coreplanets.com others were found too, that was just the only one left when that person got to them.

I'm glad that people are finally startnig to believe it.  What would even be the point in trying to fake something like this?

Attention is usually the root cause of fakes.  Some people crave attention and notoriety.  15 minutes of fame and all that.

I've found new figures at Walmart before on the pegs that weren't even in their computer yet.

Happens all the time.  A serious pain in the ass as they try and figure out what to do ::)  Just charge me regular retail from some previous star wars figure that IS in the system folks, it's highly doubtful you just raised the price.  The joy of computers telling us everything at retail.

Yeah, most recently when the "Final 12" wave came out in ROTS, when I found them they weren't ringing up.  Fortunately I had a Royal Guard and the lady just rang that figure up a few times.  But I saw a few reports around that some people's Walmarts wouldn't sell them.  Man that would really fuel my fire.   ;)

Can someone refresh my memory... is there an expected time-frame when these should start showing up?  It'd be nice if it was after tax time...

May 1st was the supposed release date.
