The AT-ST was available for a while on kmart.com, but I'm sure it'll be back. As for those 2-packs, I can't wait to get a couple more drivers and be done with this madness!

Got my Pilots and Ewoks (along with the AT_ST)... man, did they **** that packaging up.  Get a box that fits the Walker, but not long enough that the 2 packs fit comfortably in.  Just angle them and bend the hook part.  I'm an opener, but I want to my stuff to look nice when I buy it.

I'm now seeing shelftags for these at K-mart, and also seeing them get stocked.  I was in touch with a friend who told me to start checking this week and it seems to be spreading as several K-Marts I hit had tags out and had put out at least a case worth.  Even stores I'd already found them at in the wrong location had put out fresh cases.

I need one of each, if anyone happens to buy any extras. :)

Keep eyes out for both sets Diddly.

I'm betting these hit online, soon...  When they do, look up a coupon code because K-Mart often has coupons for general merchandise purchases too, especially online.

Welp, stopped by a local Sears Grand this morning after work (which is usually good for nothing toy-related except getting exercise) and they actually had these. Snagged one of each set, good to have these off the list since there are no K-Marts here. So check your Sears Grands if you have them in your area.

Sears Grand was the first place I found these, actually, as I had to ask for them at K-Mart.  Sears Grand was the first place I saw them on a shelf though,a nd they had a shelf tag immediately.

Didn't seem like anyone took my advice to look for them there though. :)  I promoted it on the front page but I never heard another report till now that Sears Grand had them in.

Still not sure on a regular Sears, as I tend to not go into those since none are nearby.

Yeah I went in there a few years ago to look for some sort of kitchen appliance, and it's really cavernous... they never have any toys so I write them off even though they're next to a TRU and a Target. Decided to stop in on a whim today and there they were. Also got signed up with their rewards program somehow so I guess I'll have to go in there more often. They did have a decent looking clothes section though.

Sears Grands are actually awesome in a way.  They're not as good on toys as other stores, but for clothes they're about as nice as Target if not a little nicer...  Tools, besides Snap-On you really can't beat Craftsman, so there's that.  They generally get what K-Mart does though, so I like them for that but they've had a bit less in terms of selection than my K-Mart stores have had the last couple years.

They were oddly the only store that had their 2-packs out fast though.  K-Mart sat on them for no real good reason I can see.

Kmart is probably trying to release these as close to the holiday shopping season as possible.

I saw a full case of these (4 of each set) with price tags on the shelf at a local K-Mart. This store didn't stock them last month when they first came out, so I am inclined to think that they are beginning to hit hard now. I also noticed that the AT-STs have begun piling up, but that might be for a different thread...

Saw four sets of drivers and only one ewok set. I grabbed the ewok set. ATST looks interesting but it will sit.

Wow that's weird Paul.  Saw the exact opposite here where the AT-ST Pilots are usually gone and Ewoks were around.  Now I don't see the Ewoks I left either...  all stores I visit are sold out.  :-\

I went to a couple Kmarts and didn't see a trace of these. Bummer!
