Picked up Ackbar at Walmart. Left Lando. No Royal guards.

I've seen a total of 3 ERGs...and those were on Force Friday around midnight.  One guy took two and I got the remaining one.  Since then it's been nothing but Landos (I took one of those as well) and Ackbars.  Great figures, but probably should have been packed a bit lighter in the case.

I'm also seeing a few FO Stormtroopers here and there...kind of nice for the army builders.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Found two Royal Guards (probably same two I tried to buy two weeks ago), aisle scranner said "see associate", but they rang up fine at the register

As I guessed, none of my Walmarts had these on the shelves when they were supposed to. They were all sold beforehand despite their being barred from sale before 9/30 or 10/2 depending on whom you believe.

How do you know they were sold?  I don't think a few of the WM's near me have gotten theirs yet.

My bad. Sold or stashed. I held some in my hands, local friends texted pictures during the week prior representing all four of the Walmart's near me in the San Fernando Valley, so we know they had 'em. None of us were able to purchase them. None of those stores had them on the selves since. I know some were stashed and picked up later and one of the hot wheel guys bragged about using Finn to purchase a full case.

I ordered two cases of the online only wave, the second case solely to get a second Royal Guard. I ended up selling the extra Ahsoka to McMetal, popped it in a bubble mailer and it apparently got crushed in transit to him. Always felt bad about that one so I'm glad he has a chance to get a MOC one (or for me to make that one up to him).

Wow, I had almost forgot about that! No worries, I got another one today.  ;D

Fantastic!  :D

How have the paint jobs been on these? I found ERG, Lando and Ackbar over the weekend and grabbed the two ERGs the store had. One was perfect but the other had the visor kind of off. Not as bad as any of the FO Stormtroopers though. Didn't look at Lando or Ackbar since I have the TVC versions.

Has brickseek changed its code for stock checking?
