According to this info from WM at RS, the 501st Legion Trooper will be available on August 17th.

Um....What's so special about the 17th  ???

I got mine earlier today.  They had a ton of 'em, so I grabbed two because apparently I can't help myself when the 501st is involved.

I'll be posting more on it later Monday on GH.  Until then, enjoy or be bored by the pics.

Sorry if everyone else in the world noticed this except me.  I think it is kind of cool he has the same back as the OT stormtroopers.  I am going to be ticked if they release an Anakin with four 501st troopers like the Kenobi and Yoda sets.  However, I understand Wal-Mart and Target need their exclusives to compete against each other.  I just do not know why they must charge $12.99 for them?  You would think they would sell more at the regular price instead of sticking it to collectors.  My opinion of course.

I picked up one of these on Saturday at our local Wal-Mart.  It was just on the pegs mixed in with the regular figures, for the regular figure price.  That was a nice change, not having to pay double for an "exclusive" action figure.  They didn't seem to have a ton there, but I don't know how long they had been out.

Snuck out of work and hit up a walmart and found 1 of these hidden behind a bunch of vehicles.

Stopped by Wal Mart today and found a ton of these, but in the end, I passed.

I got mine last night and it is easily the best of the bunch.  Comes with a bunch of weapons and a cool card insert and its practically half the price of the Security Clone and Fox that I got from SWShop and Target.  Kudos to WM on keeping the price down instead of trying to gouge collectors like some other retailers.

I went to WM today to pick up a 501st and they didn't have any. They had a lot of the other figures but no exclusives. Maybe they will get some more later, but I won't hold by breath.

I finally found a 501st today at WM. It was the last one. I like buying an exclusive for regular price.

It probably "fell off the truck". That what happens at most of my Walmarts.
