Well, I guess I can be the first person to report finding the GH Cantina packs (at least in this particular forum).  The local Wal-Mart (in VA) had two of each set on the shelf this morning under a slightly modified SW action figure section.  I came very close to picking up the one with the Modal Nodes (just for the music), but I passed on them.  No sign of the exclusive comic packs, although WM stocked the pegs full of the "new" Han ST/Chewie, GMT/Stormie, Luke ST/R2-D2 wave without the blue markings. 

So, for whatever it's worth given how horrible Wal-Mart's exclusive distribution is, the GH sets are out there.

Which VA Wal-Mart had them?

Like the sucker that I am, I will be getting two each of the Jabba's Band Sets (if I can find them). I'm kinda digging the cardboard playset value of the packaging - it might go well with the pop-up Jabba's palace diorama.

I saw a mountain of the Jabba's Band sets at a local WM today, $25 each. It was almost as big as the pyramid of 500th Vaders from a few years back.

 broke down and bought the dancers from Jabba's palace.  I already had the band members from the original ROTJ line from the 80's!

Hey all
         I came across something strange today on my morning toy run.  I stopped by Walmart and looks like the did a plan-o-gram reset for the toys.  The comic packs got their price increase to 10.88.  But here is the strange part I hit the Clearence Asles and found the Exclusive packs there.  Five Kellers and two Fetts.  I scanned one set and they scanned for 9.88 still.   and they also finally lowered the Vintage down a buck(wow).   I hiked back over the the toy section to scan another comic pack and they indeed scan at 10.88.   humm   They also had the new 2" (Force unleased) unleased battlepacks out and Sabers.  I passed on them but I guess this means The Big H is going foward with releasing The FU stuff.
Stimpy, sometimes your wealth of ignorance astounds me.

I saw Jabba's Band battle packs on clearance for $15 each on Saturday. In the clearance aisles with other toys. I might pick them up now.

I've only seen them at one of my three WMs.
