I picture driving into MN and it's nothing but red dots along the freeway, one visible from the next's parking lot, haha.

We have trees in between those red dots so they're hard to make out sometimes.   :)

Looks like a war map.

Ours is significantly more sparse of dots. ;)

It IS a war map for some of us.  I think it's beautiful.

I checked in with a local K-mart that got these in, but sold out, and asked about further shipments. They checked and claimed nothing else is scheduled to come in, so I'm wondering if each store is only getting one case.

Took a short road trip to a previously unvisited K-Mart in Chester, VA. Zowie - nicest K-Mart I have ever stepped foot into...clean, well lit, nicely organized. Quite a shock.

Anyway, they were ahead of the curve compared to every other K-Mart around here. I finally picked up my Jodo Kast, along with the Commando Squad exclusive.

It's a pretty sweet figure. Glad to have this off my list.

I took a short trip over to Anaheim K-Mart. After about ten minutes of digging thru the toy section I found a Jodo Kast behind some GI Joe vehicles for $8.99. (same price as all their other figures including some left over Bail Organas). This place was barely a step above a thrift store. Stank like one too. If I ran the Hasbro I wouldn't give exclusives to any store with a Mart in its name.

For those of you keeping track of your collection via spreadsheets or what not - where are you filing this guy?  Just curious as I'm not quite sure where to place him.

If you hang around long enough you can probably find an employee to tell you that Star Wars has been discontinued.

I've been hearing it a few times a year since 1995.

After making such a big deal (or decent-amount deal) about this exclusive, I doubt Hasbro would only ship 1 case per store. But then again, maybe they're uncertain how an obscure/EU/minor character like this would perform at retail?

Or then again maybe they just gave up on K-Mart.

I didn't really see it as being a "big deal" made about the figure though either...  It's just an exclusive figure, and the ball's in KM's court as to which stores get it or don't, and how much.  Hasbro just fills the orders if they're requested.  By what I've seen locally, all stores I've visited seemed to get the same ammount and I've not seen replenishment on any of my ventures.
