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 strapped on my flak vest and hit one up at lunch because there was a posting over at RS about someone finding the Republic Dropship Class I set there, but of course there was nothing going on at the one near me.

I saw a couple of AT-ST's, but no shelf tag or anything portending any new arrivals otherwise.

I'm pretty sure October was their release date listed, IIRC...  And if there's no pictures on something like this, then I'm reluctant to believe a random FB post.  No slight on SSG from me personally, I just think they'd have gone with it on their front page and asked for pics if it was legitimate.

I saw both sets today - mixed in with the Spiderman stuff but on their own peg.  Picked up the ewoks.

Oakdale Kmart Jeff.

Thanks for the tip, kind sir.   ;D

I hustled it over there and luckily pretty much everything was left - picked up 3x Ewoks and 3x ATST Drivers and left the ATST Drivers that paired up with Mike's ewok buy.  Must be 4x each in a case...  $14.99 each.

Pictures forthcoming after I get my kids in bed.   [yellstokids]Bedtime!!![/yellstokids] :P


edit:  Box Shot -



I'll snap a few more pics after I crack them open... :)

If there's one thing I've learned, it's that the Empire hands out shaving kits and the Alliance doesn't.

I picked these up as well. I'm surprised about what I miss and/or forget sometimes. I saw the harnesses on the driver two-pack and got all excited. When I opened them and saw the old harnesses, I got disappointed and remembered that the ones pictured got changed.

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.

Just wanting to point out I called this a long time ago...  My friendly neighborhood spyder man let me know and he was spot-on...  kind of a bummer they didn't have the cool webbing in the pic. 

The funny thing is I think what they do have on in the movie is probably a seatbelt.  At least that's what it looks like to me.

I found these at Sears Grand tonight, by the way...  So don't rule Sears out as well.  They got the AT-ST and now these sets.  Same price.

Nice to see these are hitting, about the only thing to look for the rest of the year it seems - at least for the most part.  We don't have any K-Marts in town, so if anyone would be willing to help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Amazing what an ewok-heavy year it has been, but its cool.  I was just putting the TRU ewoks away in the display case today, and we've really built up a pretty nice ewok troop here now, particularly if you've got extras with hood swapping, etc.
