It's remarkable that K-Mart is taking on some exclusives now.  And in this case they've taken on three that are based around the common theme of the AT-ST hijacking.  Personally, I would have liked to see a ROTJ Chewbacca sculpt packaged with the Ewoks.  That would have made it a comprehensive approach, but that's just splitting hairs.  I think that both the AT-ST Drivers and Ewoks look pretty awesome.

From the SDCC images it looks like these are still a few months off.  The cards in front of the figures said they'll be available in October.  But interestingly there was no price on those tags.

I would love for them to continue the theme of the battle on Endor...

iirc, I thought there weren't any price tags on any of the exclusives

I thought I saw somewhere that the 2-packs and the AT-ST were coming in August, was that the slides?

The slide show presentation didn't specify.

Agreed, but even more remarkable that Hasbro would even give K-mart an exclusive at this point since there's so few of their stores around anymore.  I'm not sure if I should be pissed at the prospect of having a horrible time/drive finding these things, or if I should just be thankful that such a cool themed "wave" of exclusives found an outlet to make it to retail in the first place.  Hopefully they'll be as easy/affordable to find as K-mart's recent B-wing was, though I doubt that'll be the case with the two army-building figure sets, which I'm assuming will be far more popular to most people than a rehash of a larger sized vehicle was last year.  With all these freakin' Ewoks coming out, I really wish Hasbro would put some kind of Ewok Village out to display them in, though I know that'll never happen.  I guess the ol' vintage version is just going to have to get a little fuller this year.
Softgoods suck.  Almost as much as the Prequels.

I've been told that the AT-ST Drivers may NOT have the same web gear seen at the SDCC preview...  This would coincide with an early pic we saw of one of the new drivers.

Not sure yet, but these may not have holsters, and instead will have just the original web harnesses seen on the Attack On Hoth set figure.

2-Pack price info

$14.99 each. Not bad for current prices.

No - not bad at all. I was worried they were going to be $19.99 each.

$14.99 is a steal for the AT-ST drivers.  For the Ewoks, it sounds about right... it's awesome that Kmart apparently hasn't jacked up the prices on these.  It's a pleasant surprise.

I like the price as well. Very reasonable.

Neither the theidl, nor the field. :P

All joking aside though, yeah these are nowhere to be found...  yet.  ;)  I thought I'd read late Sept./Octoberish.

I just read at Sir Steves Guide on Facebook that these have been found out at K-Mart stores now.  Anyone here dare step foot in a K-Mart and find one yet?

I saw that too.  I looked through their store reports from the past week  and saw no mentions of the AT-ST Driver or Ewok hijackers 2-packs.  I think the FB post might have been a misunderstanding, wishful thinking or an attempt to drive up traffic on their site.

Plus, I only found 2 in-hand eBay auctions of either 2-pack.  I'm thinking that these might not be due in stores until next month.
