I figured out why none of you guys can find them: they're all in Canada.  Seriously, I was at three Walmarts today and found no less than 20 of these at each store.  $35 a pop plus another couple bucks rounds this up to nearly $40 CAD which is just under $40 USD.  I'm temporarily undecided but will probably break down and grab one later this week.

Oh yeah, with six stores in our city that means there should be about 120 of these things around here.  I'm not sure if all stores are getting them but there's usually no variability around here and all the stores got the AT-AT so this looks like a bargain in comparison.

HA!  Too funny   ;D  Well not really for those of you that don't have Jabba.  Guess that's WalMarts fine distribution system at work I guess.   ::)

I was blown away to find 16 of them at the Walmart in Vernon (a city about a hour from my place).  Weird that I can give a positive store find in Canada.  ;)

I opened my Jabba tonight and am really impressed with the entire set.  I'm not sure that I could find a drawback to anything about it.  It is definitely a nice upgrade to the Saga version.

I have just about given up hope on getting this set.  To bad as I would have bought it.

Just sitting around here.  Put out 18 at my local Wally and there were 17 there this morning, a week later.  I wonder if I can get this thing on clearance?  Nah, probably not until after Christmas.

I'm not a fan of the way Wal Mart stores handle (or fail to handle) exclusives, but site to store is a pretty slick system. Just picked up my Jabba in a minty box- thanks to everyone who keeps posting when these show up on the site!

Holy crap, I just realized this thing is cheaper up here (before taxes) than you guys are paying.  How'd that happen?
