The first VTSC figures I saw in person were at a Wal Mart...and they were all heat sealed...I have yet to see the taped version, but I'm still looking...

The Walmart ones I found this weekend were all heat sealed as well. The only place I've spotted taped ones are TRU. I have managed to put together a complete tape-sealed set, so I can get my second Lucas figure without eating the cost of a third set. That pleases me to no end.

Thanks for the responses guys. 

Looks like I can ignore those Target conspiracy folks when they e-mail me from now on...  ;)

WM is getting them in around here too with taped bubbles Slothus, so you can add them...

Target's the only place I heard of heatsealed.  Which is really odd...  I wonder if it was an early production idea they decided to change, since Target started to get stuff first it seemed, or if it was something Target explicitly asked for...  Or if they even have the ability to make such a request.

Either way I prefer taped, though theft is so easily done,a s we've seen/heard of late.

Wal-Marts in South Carolina, from what I've seen, are heat-sealed.

Finally scored my first VTSC.  happily/luckily it was a scout and the only one left.  i have yet to see these at any store, i was able to score mine at disneyland.  greedo/han/tusken warmed the pegs while i saw 1 kid with the only luke and i scored the last scout.  these were tape sealed by the way.

Gotta ask...how much is the House of Mouse getting for these?

Here is the Run-Down on the ones I've bought and or Opened:

Tusken from Ebay- Not heat sealed but Not even Taped (but it was one of those "Accidental" ones from Wal-Mart

Biker/Luke/Han  from Ebay Red5Sixx (about a month before they hit)- Taped

Cases from Target-Heat Sealed

Tusken/Han/Luke at Wal Mart-Taped

Have you been finding these down your way at retail much Paul?

Up here, I've yet to see a vinty out, but I heard tell Target and WM has both put out some of them.  nothing from TRU I'm aware of though.

Aside from one time at Target (Where I got my VTSC Scout), I haven't seen the rest at retail after that.

I was fortunate enough to find a whole bunch of VTSC at Wal-Mart yesterday afternoon.  They might have been there the day before, and I missed them, because they were set up in those cardboard displays on one of the "middle of the aisle" island things (on one side, with some lightsabers).  I picked up a few Scouts, another Han-Endor, and a Tusken.  I was tempted to get a few more extras, but I thought that $50 was enough for one day.  Also of note, all of the figures at WM were the heat sealed ones.  The three I found at TRU last week were taped.

I went to Walmart this morning and found multiples of the endor han and greedo. All of the them were heat sealed but every one of them did not have their order forms and sticker. Most were damaged near the bottom corner of the calm shell and you can see the tape riped partially from the pack of the saga card. I think it will be easy to find the these votc figures but very difficult to find ones that have their order forms. I'm glad I have an case of these ordered from Andrewstoys.

The only good thing I see from the whole POP thing is the market will be flooded with GL Stormies.

I will be the first to say that I was a huge pessimist when it came to the Tusken figure. But once opened, you really can play around with the cloth to get really good poses.  This to me was the biggest improvement for a figure and passes the SA Scout in this wave IMO.  My only gripe is I wish the gaffi stick was a little longer.
