That one was pretty good, whereas the version with the Clone Scout had the silly big wheel and zip cord.

Yeah, but it's fun to play with. :D

True true, but the trooper keeps falling off the more you play with it.
You are never alone when there's a clone.

WOOHOO!

I'm a bit puzzled as to why this is somehow a positive development and cause for celebration.

Oh, well, I'll see them for sure (MetalJedi I'd be happy to pick one up for you).  I've got 2 Walmarts and 1 of them is great for getting ****.  But I am never for exclusives.  I just don't see the point.  Collectors are rabid.  We all go everywhere to get figures anyhow.  I wonder if it really works in terms of getting people into the store, at least people that weren't gonna go anyhow in pursuit of the basic figures of the month.  But what the hell do I know.  I spent one year in retail and decided that I wanted to fix teeth for a living.

WalMart?  Great.  Just great.

The window of opportunity on these WalMart exclusives (excepting the Cantina band tin set) is usually so narrow that you're lucky to get an exclusive at WalMart.  This is really where having some good collector networking going on helps out.  But it also prompts silly late night trips to 24 hour WalMart stores to see if you can score the damn things while they're stocking the floor.  Drat!  And double drat!!!

I am not pleased about this at all.  I've been able to get all the Target exclusives since ROTS came out, but never saw the Separation of the Twins figures and only saw one Cantina Band tin recently.  I'm also fairly sure that I won't see the 5 exclusive figures from the final 22.  This has just got BAD written all over it.

Looks like I'm going to have to get on Dressel Rebel's and MetalJedi's distribution list once these come out!

WM, being the hit-or-miss store that it is, is not a good outlet for any exclusive to me...  Sometimes you have the Cantina set situation where they were abundant, and other times you have the TIE Bomber situation where you may or may not see them ever...  Or to make it more recent, the Twins sets (I saw them and even saw clearance, but I know I'm the exception, not the rule, when it came to those twins sets).

WM definitely isn't anything to go "WOO HOO!" over since having a WM around you doesn't mean you'll actually get the item(s) at your store, haha.

Believe me...  As a collector of a toy line that ONLY WM carries (besides etailers), I can definitely say I'm never happy to hear WM has an exclusive, much less one that is a movie clone set that people will be going nuts to get, and some will want many of.  :(

True.  But unlike a Target clone, non-movie though as it may be, it's not being held hostage for $13 plus tax for a single figure.

It's exclusive, but at least it's not a rip off.  It could be worse.

It might as well be a ripoff then maybe people could find it.

I sya "Woo-hoo!"too, my Target sucks at exclusives. I've never seen a DOGG figure & he's supposed to be a major warmer! MY good WM always gets good stuff, plus my friend works at WM so he'll hook me up with one.
