Non-Retail Exclusive TVC Basic Figures
« on: February 17, 2018, 06:53 PM »
From Toy Fair Reports, Walmart will have some exclusive TVC figures...

Spring 2018 - TLJ Rey (Island Journey)

Fall 2018 - SOLO Mimban Stormtrooper

Apparently, these will be numbered in sequence with the basic figure line, so I am already anticipating everyone's "fun" trying to find them.   :-X

I hope there was a collective groan when these were announced for Walmart.

Hasbro rep:  Fear not!  These will be readily available in good time and in abundant numbers at your favorite local Walmart just like the Kylo Ren throne room and the TLJ Black Series wave.

Big GROAN for exclusives, but looking forward to the figs. Rey seems to have a great head sculpt and the Mimban Trooper seems to be built on a new mold, so all for it.

Fixed the Hasbro rep quote for your there P-Siddy

HUGE groan from me on this news - why is WalMart even being allowed to sit at the table after how badly they handled the 3.75" TBS exclusive line?!?!?

Cuz WM has the largest retail footprint in the US and shitloads of $ haha. 

That said yeah this was the worst news I can think of out of the show, that WM has any exclusives much less some of the TVC figures I'd really like to own. 

The Mimban Stormie, at least, is just a repaint with a cloth cape and new guns.  But Rey I REALLY want a couple of her.  Ugh.  She should be the basic figure and the repack should be the exclusive TVC carded one.

Exactly - oh you want some TVC exclusives WalMart? Here - choke on the TVC carded versions of Kylo Ren and Rey from TFA!

WalMart exclusives? Ugh indeed. Still haven't seen the last Black Series wave at our local store. At least it is only a couple to track down though.

I am thinking the helmet looks like a new sculpt... maybe ball jointed hands too?  The black body suit under the armor looks more textured than any past figure to me, but I am not certain.

I also really am liking the Rey.  I didn't think that version of her was coming in TVC so soon.  It sucks that it's going to be exclusive.  I had a hard enough time getting any other Walmart exclusives that I wanted.

Did they indicate whether or not WalMart would be getting solid cases of their two exclusive figures or are these figures just going to be mixed in with whatever assortment is shipping at the time?

Fingers crossed that it's solid cases cause then they should (hopefully) be pretty straightforward to find.

I'm good on Cassians CHEWIE, I have some and help from people getting some cheap ones, but I won't mind getting the TVC one.  More concerned on getting Scarriff Troopers to be honest.

As the Mimban Trooper goes I meant along the lines of it's just a Stromtrooper, only dirtier, than something totally different like the Range Trooper.

Ok cool.  I want more scarif troops too.  Guessing they'll put him on TVC card later?

Do you think that's an all new helmet or did they reuse the Rogue One 5poa Stormtrooper helmet?

EDIT - I don't think it's the Rogue One helmet but it is close to it.  It has some sort of new circular things going on on the sides of the temple area.

LOL yeah I guess these will finally hit stores widespread in 2021 or so. Until then, I can only hope these hit during football season when I'm traveling and able to hit small town Walmarts

Can I get a late groan in too?

At least it's not ALL of them this time.
