Just curious, for those of you who have found these, are they usually just in the regular Star Wars section, or "action figure" aisle(s)?  They haven't shown up at our local WM yet, but I didn't know if they might be stashed elsewhere.  I have tried my best to check around just in case, because back when the ROTS sneak preview figs were about to be released, I found them a week before the "official date" hanging in a far corner of the matchbox/hot wheels/car aisle.  Anyways, just curious where you were finding these.  Thanks for any info.

I found the only 2 they had a few pegs over from the ROTS figs. They were in the middle of a barren section of empty, unmarked pegs. ???

    I finally found the Twins and an extra Dooku to keep carded. Now I can concentrate on finding the corrected versions of Bly and Gree.

Some people are seeing these in the "PDQ"s, the stand up display trays like the Preview figures came in.

Ocean, the Twins case assortment hit Atlanta yesterday.

After picking up a set, I think the twins look much better in person than they do in pictures. It's a pleasant surprise.

I hate to admit it, but that is a sad image.

Nice picture and shot ruiner! It made me think of a song whose chorus had a line called

These hit here now too and I guess I'm getting a set for X-Mas.  Nice getting SW toys for X-Mas.  Got a royal guard too.  I may have to keep my eyes out for more because I only managed to get a couple of him but would certainly like a nice bulkier #.  8 or 10 would be sweet since Palpy had 8 with him on the DS2 I think.

I thought about getting another red guard to open, but I'm sort of saving my SW pennies for the figs I don't have.  I'm planning sort of a post X-Mas blitz, assuming clearances, which may be assuming a lot.  We'll see.

nice pic ruiner, ...

I believe that picture was actually posted by Ook on the prior page guys.  ;)

But yeah, cool shot there D.

Haven't found these sets out here yet, but it sounds like most of the locals have, so hopefully I'll stumble across 'em soon...

Found these today, very cool - and thank God they weren't Target exclusives, or they'd be $12.99 each and probably have either a lava reflection on the babies, or some sort of "stealth" paint application.

And good to see some Dookus and a couple Tarkins back on the pegs.  Couple red and blue guards too.

I picked these up today as well, but the other figures packed in the cases were long gone. I really like the baby "figures."

The best part was that I only had to pay $3.68 for the both of them - originally $10.33 with tax (take that, Target!), but I used a gift card from Christmas last year. :)

After not seeing these in stores and fearing that I'd missed out on my carded set, I walked into Walmart and found about two dozen on the pegs, and the accompanying ROTS pegs filled with the Guards and Tarkins from the case. Like others have said, it feels good to buy an exclusive at a fair price. Well done on Walmart's part.

It also feels good to be caught up.  :)
