Nice find Brad!  Was it the regular price, or did they have it discounted?

Great find Brad!  8)
Not something you would see everyday looking for Star Wars stuff! I would expect to find that in a specialty store.

I've heard a rumor that you can still return toys to Wal Mart (if they ever sold it).

I believe someone from RS did that a long time ago, and it caused an influx of POTJ figures in his area during the Saga timeframe.

Maybe a fellow collector liquidated? Or maybe they were just cleaning out the back room.   :)

 ::) ...or maybe a collector was moving, decided he'd rather have the in-store credit, and returned it by taping a Saga TIE Bomber UPC to the back.

I actually found a luke skywalker in X wing gear at a walmart.The crazy thing was he was holding his helmet! As I examined the package I realized someone had carefully cut open that package removed the figure and swapped heads with a different Luke.The person then cut the helmet off of the head and put it in the figures arms,put everything back in the package and place it back on the shelfs! I swear this is true.Someone must be pretty bored.Needless to say I bought the figure.It was here in Las Vegas.

Nice find! Yeah, every now and then I'll find an older figure pop up at Walmart or TRU. The ultimate find will be when someone finds an orginal POTF figure!  :P

The last time I saw a POTF2 figure at a retail store was the CommTech Greedo and Han Solo that I saw at WM sometime around Christmas of 2003. Now that I think about it, I probably should have bought em  :(.

The only Walmarts here n my neck of the woods were built in 2003 and 2005 so they don't have any old POTF2 stuff in their stockrooms, but there is a Rite Aid in Ridgefield Park that still has 4 POTF2 Ugnauts 2pks and 3 8-D8s hanging on the pegs priced at $8.99 each (if they were a buck or 2 I'd snag them myself :( ).
