Despite the fact that I'm a completest, I don't think I'll loose any sleep over not getting one.

I feel the same way, which is extremely odd for me because I usually tend to bend over backwards hunting for WM exclusives.  I think this is the very first exclusive in over 7 years of collecting that I don't care for.

Me too.  I no longer have the heart/energy/desire to dig through Wal-Mart looking for yet another "great idea, poor execution" exclusive.   :-\

Just listening to reports from the locals and it seems like maybe only 3 WM's in the entire area got this set in while others have no sign of them at all.  Very odd item this one was.

Would it really surprise anyone if Wal-Mart put these out, en masse, in about a week or so?  Wal-Mart hasn't really done so well at stocking stuff on a consistent basis (at least in my experience) and I wouldn't be shocked if a lot of these were still in the pipeline. 

Even though I have no interest in this item whatsoever, I still find its lack of appearance in most areas to be a little strange.  One thing's for sure though: if Wal-Mart does put them out in the coming weeks, they more than likely won't hit clearance before next Father's Day. :)

Maybe my WM will keep pace like it's been with it's other exlusives. After all, six plus months later, mine finally got in the Cantina tin set. So, I expect to see this on the shelf around Christmas time.

One of my Walmarts put these out for the first time today.

What makes even less sense though, is why vastly inferior sculpts of Vader and Luke were used when there were much better choices.

So stupid.

Pass.

Yeah the sculpts are really bad, i kind of like the gimmick factor of it though. For a sale price and not finding anything else on my journey today i opted for it.
