I opened both of these sets last night and I loved them both!  So much win!  Kudos Hasbro!

The Drivers with their helmets on, to me, look like a perfect translation from the original vintage figure to its modern counterpart.

Is anyone finding these guys still?

I haven't seen them once, and I've been checking every K-Mart I can think of.

Ok great. I haven't found them yet either, but it seemed like they came and went. Glad to hear they probably just haven't really hit yet.

A lot of stores aren't putting them out on the floor because there's not a spot for them...  Others are just squeezing them in where they can.  Some have put out one case and held back another...  I have it on good authority though that these were to go out when they had peg space though, not before.

I'm hoping to nab a couple AT-ST Driver sets so I keep checking but it's on my way anyway.

Ugh...I wish they'd just put them up on the website. I just want to nab two AT-ST driver packs and one Ewok pack.

IIRC they took a while to put the AT-ST up on the website.  A while after they'd already been out and shelfwarming.

These have been found in Mn yesterday... so maybe it's time for another look?

I managed to find them at the one K-Mart in my area last weekend.  Nice sets, I wish they had the holsters though.

I loved the harnesses...  Was surprised to learn what they were originally intended for.  I knew back before August they were going with the old ones though so I was prepped for it I guess.

They were a cool idea though and a bummer they're gone.

Nothing online.

And none at our local 8th St. store.

Got wind these were found at another local Pitt K-Mart I don't frequent.

There's a big reason these aren't easy to find right now though...  Like Target, K-Mart often won't put items out if there isn't a spot on the pegs for them, and they're equally reluctant to pull from the back if there's no space on the floor for them as well...  dependant on the store of course, but I've been told that's a big reason they're not readily available.

The stores that put them out probably shouldn't have done so, yet.
