Looking at the pics of these on www.walmart.com -

I'm definitely getting two of each... they are really starting to grow on me.

Did you order these?  I'm only seeing the Han set online.

No - the others aren't available for order... not sure why the Han is.  All off them are shown at www.rebelscum.com right now...

Aren't these just the same pictures that were posted by Hasbro a few weeks ago? ???

Jeff - I was answering a question from JediJman.  If you click on the individual pics at RS, it takes you to the actual web page on Walmart for each one.  Sorry for not being more clear.

Example - click on the Plo Koon thumbnail, and it takes you to this.

I wonder why they're reporting that the others wont be sold on-line? They don't sight any source other than an observation.  ???

I think the pages at Wal-Mart are just place holders at this point as they say Not Sold Online and Not Sold In Stores. That'd make them tough to buy then wouldn't it?

Agree on the placeholder theory, I am sure that will change, once they are actually in stock. I took a shot and ordered two of the Han sets for local store pick up. I highly doubt they will come in but you never know. I actually want the smiley head victory Luke, I did not think it look that bad. The narrow VOTC head is not that great either so I am puzzled why some are rejoicing that it may be the old head on there.

A bit off topic, and I know its been discussed somewhere here before (but I can't remember where), but has anyone tried the "site to store" before?  If so, how does it work for you.  I usually try to avoid our local WM if at all possible (its usually a disaster area), but if it saves on shipping I might have to try this out.  How does it all work, you just pick it up at customer service?

From Walmart:

1.  Wait for an email telling you your order is ready for pickup (7-10 business days).
2.  Print the email. You will need it at the store. (Only one copy is needed per order.)
3.  Go to the Site to Store area at your store (usually located at the back of the store) and present your printed email and a valid photo ID.
4.  Your items will be held at the store for 21 days. If not picked up within 21 days, the items will be returned to the distributor.

Ya, well I've actually used it before on an exclusive they decided to put up on their site and I have to say that it's pretty seemless.  You can even pick which store you want it delivered to.

I still hate them though.   >:(

I used it to get a MP Starscream and it worked okay.  Tokk FOREVER for them to get the package in, but I jsut had to bring my code to Jewelry (not sure why there instead of CS desk, but whatever) and they brought out the box.  Nice way to save some cash on shipping.

I received the Han/R-3PO Droid Factory set from WM.com today, so it did indeed ship for anyone who ordered them.  I didn't use the "site to store" since I wasn't familiar with it previously, but if the rest show up online, I'll have to give it a try.  Also, for anyone interested, I see the Han pack is once again in stock at WM.com - strange how just one pack is available right now.

I just placed an order using the site to store option. Perhaps this will inspire my hell of a walmart to stock the rest of them in the store.
