Too bad Walmart doesn't actually stock their exclusives. Walmart exclusives are always extreemly rare around here. You never even see price stickers on the shelves.

Or if you are in Minneapolis, there's just 1-2 stores that actually stock it, but 10-20 people from here alone that want to get one.  Its really too bad this isn't a Target exclusive - I've never had trouble getting one of theirs and usually at a discounted price to boot.

While one could debate the victor when it comes to exclusives (I'd lean towards Target as winner for 2-packs, Walmart the winner for the big stuff), there is no debate that the clear loser is once again K-Mart.  :P

Their "Clone Trooper Squad" pack is yet another in a long line of suck.    ::)

Yeah, that card in there is a membership card stating that you belong to the "****** Exclusive Club".

Funny - I would have gone the other way.  I like the Droid Factory sets better than the Target 2-packs of late and Target's Rancor and UBPs surpass any WM big ticket items I can think of.  Definitely agree with you on the Kmart repackaged crap though.  You'd think not ever selling these would lead to a stop in suKexclusives, but they are determined to put out crud no one wants year over year.

I was simple stating that this exclusive is utter ****, and purchasers of it belong to a special club of lobotomized mouth breathers who deserve special recognition through the issuing of a "special" card noting as such.

Anyone else notice the Walmart BAD 2 packs are going to be $15.99 & the Target Genosis 2 packs will be $12.99?  Wonder if that's a misprint....

Thanks for posting that Jeff.  Man, that's a lot of stuff.  I'm glad I'm not trying to get all of it - it would almost be enough to just keep up with the exclusives, let alone the mainline stuff that is coming out.

I just realized that some other things revealed at SDCC are not on the list (K-Mart "box of clone suck", Target CW Plo/Mace Battle Packs, etc), so I'll have to do another update tonight...  ::)

That is my "Maybe" list.

I can see getting several of the IMP and Rebel pilot Evo sets. (and selling the clones)

Does that TIE Interceptor have an ejector seat?
