Apparently Hasbro just announced these are not shipping until 2010.   :(

These or the non-exclusives?

From Galactic Hunter:

"Walmart Comic Packs: 2010
12/8/2009 9:04:58 PM | Reported by Adam
The new Hasbro Wal-Mart Exclusive Comic Packs are not going to ship in 2009 according to our friends at Hasbro's PR firm. Expect them some time in the new year, most likely Spring."

So I guess it is just the exclusives that have been pushed back...

In the last Q&A, Hasbro said the basic Comic Packs were pushed back to 2010 as well...

** They are farther away than we'd like. We have really been struggling with the Comic Packs, but there is some good news - the remaining Fall packs should be out around March time frame. We're still hopeful that we can get to the Spring 2010 ones shown at Comic Con eventually as well, but right now we're focused on the Fall ones

Hopefully these will ship with the last batch of the regular CPs (Tholme, Exar etc) when they ship in Spring 2010. I can easily wait for these sets. I am more hoping the EU Legacy wave still ships this month.

It's funny, I just recognized the scout troopers from an old comic I had for the longest time just lying around.

Didn't they say that the EU TLC wave won't be shipping until February?

I'm pretty sure that was in a recent Q&A answer.

Many retailers show the end of this month beginning of January. They may get pushed back but BBTS still shows this month. If anything I expect these early/mid January Feb for box stores.

I'm hopeful that, since we saw the samples of the WM exclusives recently, they're going to happen within a month or two.  That'd be fine to me.

Thanks for the clarification. I'm not a GH reader.

Finally, finally, FINALLY (!) found a CP in the new red/white packaging (it was Wedge and Bothan, unfortunately ::))! For months my local Targets have had only an endless slew of Leia/Xizor CPs, but for the first time ever they're getting the new packs! ;D

Unfortunately, there was another 2-3 Leia/Xizor sets sitting stagnant behind the new red/white set...

Another new image...

This time a nice crisp loose shot of Exar Kun Ulic Qel-Droma from the upcoming Exar Kun/Ulic Quel Droma 2-pack.


Clicky to check him out!

This set's pretty well anticipated, and with the line's short life left I'm sure these upcoming packs are going to be popular.  Hopefully we'll see more soon.

I'm still searching for a couple extra Katarn/Vong packs (did find one recently though) and so I hope we don't get deluged with new ones too soon since that last wave is still a pain to find.

A new image of Jedi T'ra Saa surfaced... 


Clicky to check her out!

Figures like T'ra are why I hate seeing the Comic line in such a dismal place.  She's got nice articulation it seems, a fantastic sculpt, lots of detail, looks to be a decent paintjob...  I just hate knowing that line's on its last legs I guess.  She's the kind of figure I'll buy in a heartbeat.
