The fact that their exclusives are impossible to search for is also infuriating. I somehow found this on my phone a few weeks ago. I just searched for it on my lap top for you JediJman, typing in the exact heading and it would not populate.  >:(

I called Walmart on this, talked to s supervisor. They were either ignorant of their own policies or blowing smoke up my butt. They have/had palettes of product sitting in warehouses, not selling to people who want it and make it nearly impossible for those people to purchase that product. I know they're only toys, but still. Someone is responsible and someone is causing Walmart to take a financial loss, no matter how insignificant.

That is some shady stuff right there.  Thanks for the link - one more reason to hate exclusives.

Picked this up at a small town Walmart over the weekend. They had 4 total and I just grabbed the one. First time I've seen it, as it doesn't appear to have hit the city yet (or scalpers got them all). Rang up at $17-something

Super important question. Oh ok, question for sake of my OCD. What's up with the packaging on this? I am trying to label it on my spreadsheet. Why is it not the same red and black box we've had for years?

I thought that was super cool! I just figured it is mud-colored to match the figure, similar to how the Spirit Obi-Wan was in a blue box to match his Force Spirit coloration.

The packaging choices do seem kind of random at times.  I *KIND OF* understood the color of the Walgreens exclusive Force Spirit Obi-Wan Kenobi (it was kind of like the figure).  But the all black packaging?  The inspiration is beyond me.

Ridiculous! JTA has an article on my local Walmart (Burbank, CA) getting 60 of these last night, with a picture. There's a ton in the picture. I got there at 10am today. ALL GONE!!! The workers said 2 or 3 people bought them all last night.

I did find one in a cart somewhere, but still. That's ridiculous.

I saw these quite often here but didnít think it was a big deal...  I still see it now and again but not like I did a month ago.

Wow.  At least least your store is getting them.  I haven't even seen a peg/tag for these at any midwest Walmarts
