Walmart Exclusive Clone Wars 2-Packs
« on: May 31, 2011, 11:59 PM »
An image of Scythe from the end of the Geonosis story-arc turned up...


Clicky

Pretty interesting.  Seems a lot more tuned into a battlepack, to me.

Yeah, I saw that somewhere too...does not seem to be from any existing BP we know about on the horizon, but I agree it seems sort of lackluster as a single carded release. Probably from something we haven't seen yet.

That whole Geonosis arc has been a gold mine of figures, just wish we could get some of the vehicles.

It's great to see more clones with unique head sculpts/paints. I am still a little disappointed that Jesse did not come with a removable helmet to show off his head tattoo.

The Fives and Echo from the Defend Kamino BP I now have have a different head scuplt to the standard Clone head sculpt being released since CW started in 08.

I think Scythe is going to be in the rumored 2pks that surfaced a couple days ago. I found an eBay auction today that has a new 212th Clone as well (Gearshift probably) that has lights added to the helmet. My guess is that Scythe and "X" will be in one of the 2pks while Gearshift and a Zombie Geonosian will be in the other.

Hopefully they will toss in some more brain worms with both packs too...  that'd be a nice touch.

These are both In Stock now at Toy Palace.

So you could order these Walmart exclusives from an online retailer in a foreign country thousands of miles away and still have them before brick and mortar stores here in the States ever even think about putting them out on the shelves.

That's messed up.

These DVD packs should be saved for recards, not new figures.

They had been.   But WalMart is a pretty powerful retailer, and all too often they're calling the shots with their suppliers.  That might be the case here.  I've been avoiding the previous DVD 2-pack releases at WalMart because they've been pure reissues.  But perhaps WalMart saw that they lost most of the collector market because of that?

I was trolling through my "needs" spreadsheet this AM and came across these - I had forgotten about them...

Now I'm wondering if these were cancelled in the USA or are they still coming?  I thought they would have hit with the other Fall 2011 WM exclusives (BARC/AT-RT), but nothing around these parts.   Any of you guys with 2012 reset Walmarts seeing peg space labelled for these?

These things continue to haunt me...I can't imagine they would have been cancelled, with all the tooling costs incurred, DVD production, etc, but the extended delay is mystifying.

I think it's a very Q&A worthy question. Habsro could at least confirm whether the domestic versions of these things were actually produced or not. It's possible they made them and handed them off to Wally and have no clue beyond that.

I have not noticed peg space for these in the Walmarts that have reset near me, but I will be sure to check next time I go.

There is no real "new" tooling other than Gearshift's helmet so I think their investment would be minimal. I still say this will be out in some form in the US.
