I hit K-Mart today and found 4 of each. Got the AT-ST driver/gunner.

These have sold through here too, but I have hope more will come in.

BTW this is why they were held back...  The sale.

I was talking to a friend and she told me they didn't know at the time there was a sale coming but the boxes didn't have shelf space allotted till right before the sale, and so stores technically were NOT to put them out.  Now they're gone and the sale's here...  Oh well.

I hope for more to show up...  Especially the AT-ST Pilots.  I'd definitely buy more of them.

Opened mine. I missed the first release of the AT-ST driver. (In fact haven't bought an AT-ST driver since POTF2)

 Shouldn't they have imperial emblems on both shoulders? At least one of them in the movie did.

A bit tall, IIRC I knew that already, which is a bit irritating, mainly because they make Stormtroopers look smaller.

And in a perfect world, they'd have come with two helmets each, goggles down and goggles up, like vintage carded Naboo pilot.  And easily removable harnesses.

Yes, yes, and yes.

I like him but the height bugs me.  Not as much as a droid would, but annoying.  The Scanner Tech was a perfect base...  why the resculpt?  I'll never know.

Well now there's a flooded subway tunnel in between me and the only two Kmarts in my area (though I'm thankful that this is the only problem I'm facing from the hurricane). I really hope these become available online.

You can risk it. Brave those cold subterranean flood waters to save $2!

Or not.  ;)

If it weren't for the C.H.U.D. I might consider it.

I thought that was all part of living in New York.

More of these have showed up in my area.  A full case at one store I knew was cleaned out of both cases they'd gotten in initially, so I know more are coming now.

Stop at K-Mart.

I'd post on our front page, but we're still ironing that out.  :-*  Soon!

Finally found these Sunday. And they were still on sale, which was an even better deal.
