Is this figure actually coming out this month like a rumor list indicated or is this a post-August 1st release?

My bets are on July, not June...  Given when we first saw carded images, and now seeing only the first loose image...  July at best is my guess.

I hope that Hasbro keeps up with making these "surprise" EU-type figures. It was quite surprising to hear that an all-new Jodo Kast was coming up again. Although I have thought about how some stores are getting their own exclusive characters:

K-Mart: Jodo Kast
Toys R Us: Kul Teska
Wal-Mart: Jabba the Hutt

Any chances Target gets its own exclusive figure? The last Target exclusive that I can remember is the Geonosis Arena sub-line.

I have no clue how K-Mart is still standing after all these years, but at least this isn't a sucky exclusive like they usually get.

I guess hasbro thought thaT last one sucked as much as the collectors seemed To, haha. 

km is actually still fairly common in some areas.  especIaLly where target and wm haven't built a store every 5 miles.  not many of ours closed at all when they purged.

September 2008.  Since this likely will not hit until late July/early August, that's almost 2 years.  So it's close in a cosmic sense but 18 months is forever in this business.

So...very interesting to see Mr Kast displayed prominently with all the TCW exclusives. I know he's not technically part of the line but the packaging and proximity of the display to the other TCW stuff is all the convincing I need. I'm in.  ;D

WOOO HOOO.  Found Jodo Kast at my local K-Mart last night.  There were about 9 or so of them.  He was $8.99, which isn't bad because figures at regularly $8.49 or so at that store. 

I didn't open him yet, I had to wrap birthday presents last night...

Interesting that there's nothing packed inside the bubble, as in no advertisements for other figures etc.  He comes with his helmet, jetpack, etc.

Happy hunting!

Nice score!  Can you post the UPC when you have a chance or PM me with it?  My Kmart will probably let it sit in the stock room for a year.

Yeah, nice score.  :)  Time to stop at KM a bit.

I'll try and pick up a couple extra for people who don't have KM's near them anymore.

I hit Kmart this evening and found the exclusive Jod Kast along with the 4-pack of repack clones.  Passed on the repack, but I scooped up the 4 Jod Kasts they had left.  $8.99 isn't too awful, though its been a long time since I paid that for a basic figure with all the TRU sales.

Not sure which digits is technically the UPC (hides face in shame), so here's what the bottom of the figure says:

6   (lines extend down from barcode)  53569  (more lines) 50374  (lines) 3


Does that mean its 6 53569 50374 3  ? :-[

Found these tonight...  Nice figure all around.  Good paintjob, good sculpt...  Another sorta sissy-looking Mandalorian, but I'm used to it.  I guess they're all kind of not tough looking except maybe Boba and Jango.

Good figure though, and an exclusive under $10's a surprise.
