None of the WalMarts in my area have any sign of these showing up.

WTF?

Not to add to paranoia, but I always worry about WM exclusives, they are so hit and miss around here.

I am with you, that's why I ordered them online. WM is too wishy washy, I am half tempted to buy the Vulture Droid to save the headache but since I am looking for their exclusive wave I figured I wait.

That's why I bought the Super Vulture Droid and the Dewback as soon as I saw them.  WalMart may be the largest retailer in America, but they're also the most inconsistent when it comes to Hasbro Star Wars exclusives.

I found two each of these Battle Packs today. Only one store of the three near me put them out, and it was the only DTF (giggedy) product they put out as well. Decided to pass on the Mos Espa set for now, although the new paintjobs really made the 12+ year old figures look good.

The Astromech set, I almost bought (despite repeatedly telling myself I wouldn't), until I went in closer to inspect the paintjobs. Total crap. Most of the sockets and compartments on the dome are just painted on, rather than sculpted on, as is the light near the flashlight/projector thing. The green astromech is actually missing this light, something that I find to be completely unacceptable. I know paint apps have been cut down over the last few years, but if they want me to pay top dollar for a bunch of repaints using some of the cheapest parts in existence, I'd like at least some attention to detail.

I found the Royal Starship Droids set this morning, along with the Anakin/Sebulba set.  It appears that these are starting to show up now.

I've gotten a couple reports out west from friends too, so these do appear to be surfacing at retail once againl.

How much is that TCW Deluxe set with Castas pictured there?

My Walmart has one too that they stubbornly insist on keeping at full price.  >:(

I saw a couple of the Astromech sets tonight out and about as well.

What is much harder to find is that Deleted Scene wave. Those do not seem to linger at all.
