Our Walmarts have nothing but the same old crap! All the Star Wars figures they have are from last year & they drop the prices on them & still they cannot get rid of them. Very sad. By the end of the year, they will put them out again in the bargin section with all those Hulk toys.  ;D

WalMart has just totally collapsed for me as a source for SW figures.  It's not even a factor anymore.

Ick. All the local (and even some far-away ones) all have that accursed Lott Dodd/Watto case with a few Anakin HD and 1st Dooku here and there. I don't even want to think how hard it'll be to get the Deluxe Obi-Wan and Jango, because retailers here by and large have given up on stocking them. I have the Spider Droid and Super Droid builder already.

Funny how everyone is having problem with Walmarts in their area. If not for Walmarts around here stocking the occasional new figure, I would have seen exactly 1 new fig in a store (Target). But due to Walmart, I've managed to pick up about another half dozen of the 2003 figs. I haven't seen anything new in a few weeks there though.  :(

I think those Obi/Jango Deluxe figs are doomed at retail.  No one's stocking them, and Target skipped them altogether.  Now we have the CW 3 packs replacing them shortly.  I'm glad I ordered from Newforce.

I found a blonde Imperial Officer at Target today, so maybe that's the place to be. I didn't find any Younglings or Yoda, or Red Battle Droid for that matter. Hopefully BBTS will stock them soon, cause I don't like buying cases.

Yeah, I think Target is primed to be getting in a lot of SW stuff soon.  None in my area have barely anything at all right now (actually that goes for nearly the entire toy department!).

None of the Wal-Marts in Knoxville have had any new figures in about 9 months.  Knoxville's dry.

The one's outside the city aren't that great.  So, no need to sing the blues, Lando.

the one in Monroe is pretty good, i forget what road its on though.
i want to say 287, but i am unsure.

but hey all wal-marts are about 40-50 minutes away from me... so i know wht its like not having them around.
but as little as i go to them, i'd be pissed if they had no SW items as thats what i'd be going for.

Dimetrodon, I only talk about stuff like that over at the NJSWCC.  You should post there some more.
