Wal-Mart Value Two Packs @ $9.98
« on: January 15, 2007, 04:43 PM »
So according to this site, some lucky collectors are finding new value packs for $10.  Has anyone else found any sets other than Luke Endor/3PO or the AT-AT Driver/Sandtrooper?

I never saw any two-packs at Wal-Mart of any kind recently.  :(

As I posted in the TSC Discounts/Price Hikes thread, this is a fantastic deal considering that ONE figure is $7. I hope I'm able to find some of these, and it looks like they've made some good choices for figures unlike those TRU 2-Packs from 2005.

Dammit, I bought an AT-AT Driver and Sandtrooper last week at WM for full price too.  >:(

That's pretty interesting. I wonder if it's an overstock thing like usual, or a special arrangement.

How crazy is it that we're excited about $5 figures?  Remember when Hasbro did the Clone Wars two packs for $4.96?

 ;D Found these this morning.  There are some weird combo's but more over there are better ones then the ROTS TRU ones i'd seen.  I'd say the funniest was the Rep Been and DSG.  But they had Emporer & Endor Luke/Sora Bulq & Sandie/the Comm Cody & Sandie was cool.  The 2 I got was a Sandie & AT-AT Driver along with an AT-AT Driver & DSG.  So look all over the 2 I found were on the top shelf and the Cody/Sandie was hiding over in the discount toy isle.

It's going to be weird for me to see the Armybuilder packs and pass them up (since I'm at my max for the Saga2 armybuilders.)

I'm hoping to see some army builder ones...  I'd love some of those.  :(

Today, I saw yet another version of these at one of our 4 WM's. There was 6 cases of 'Enboo' wave two-packs. Each match was figures paired from that wave only. I half expected some of these to have UGH figures in some pairings ::).

Thanks for the note on that too Jon, I'm curious about these.  I've seen no value packs out here yet...  And I'm a little disappointed and hoping they just need to make their way over here yet.  I really am looking forward to finally some "cheap" (and boy do I use that term loosely) army building this year.  It's really been pathetic in '06 for what you have to pay per figure.

Though I've seen/bought these, are they shipping to Wal-mart like this or is Wal-mart simply recieving the plastic packaging and somebody in the back throwing the figs in the plastic and then putting them out on the shelf.

I stopped by our local WM yesterday just to check if they had these, but there was no sign of them.  They had however re-stocked with all sorts of Naboo wave - which was already sitting there :).  Hopefully these will sell through or something, so we can see some of the newer stuff once it is released more fully.

Have yet to see these here in Iowa.  I would like to get that Sora Bulq / Sandie combo if nothing else, since I don't have either of those.
