Not needing to go into any more Walmarts for the foreseeable future is reason enough to be that excited.

Just got one at a WM in Plaistow, NH. Only my second attempt. I can't stand WM - very glad I don't have to set foot there again anytime soon.

Great toy - some wonky things, but the best version since the Vintage one by far (not that that's saying much).

Saw this tonight again, for the first time in a few weeks. Only one on the shelf and the box was slightly crushed in so I passed.

Checked two Walmarts in New England this weekend...nuthin'. They even claim it's not available in stores and said they couldn't find anything within a 30 mile radius. **** Walmart.

Has there been any info from Hasbro about what the hell is up with the Walmart Jabba? Stores are telling me that it's not available in stores, and walmart.com is telling me it's not available online.

Hasbro's line is that it is Walmart's exclusive and they do what they want with it.

The long and short of it is that Walmart does not make an effort to make exclusives available at all stores.  Some stores will carry certain exclusives, others will not.  The website says it best -



It's sort of a crap shoot.  If you go to Walmart.com and search your zip code, it will give you a list of the stores near you that were scheduled to get Jabba -

"We found X stores within 50 miles of [zip code]. Only stores that carry this product are shown below. (In-stock status is approximate and was last updated on DATE at TIME, E.T.) "

The only bad part is there is no way to tell what's happening at those stores.  Only thing you can do is contact one of those "carry this product" stores and hope to god that you find the one employee who knows what they are doing (long odds, I know).

Yeah, I went to two of them this weekend, as I was in New England. There's no Walmarts around NYC, so I was trying to find Jabba while I had a car rented. Both places were on that list, but neither had it. And according to the workers there, it's not available anywhere that they could see. This Walmart exclusive bull**** is really pissing me off.

I still keep hoping more of these are on the way for some reason...  It's not quite October and they weren't to be out at all till then for some odd reason.  It's very odd though, how this was handled.  I saw them at two stores and wish I'd bought two more now, just to help out.  One store I know got cleared out by a local scalper because he gloated to me about it.   :-\

Atually, there is one Wal-Mart close to NYC (Whit Plains) but it has been dry.  No Jabba, not even Vinatge figures.  The store is a wreck...

The finally added price tags for Jabba around here, but still no sign other than the one I found.
