Walmart Black Series 6" Mimban Stormtrooper

6" Mimban Stormtrooper - Walmart exclusive

(So Walmart will be equally frustrating to both 3.75" and 6" army builder fans of the Mimban Stormtrooper!)

Yep, if this follows the trend of previous WM exclusives, one store will get about 50 of these while the rest of the stores get nothing. Luckily this doesn't scream "must own" to me

Seriously. I feel extremely lucky to get my hand on any WM Exclusive.

Same here. I rarely even see WM exclusives in the wild anymore, usually relying on help or eBay. Target, or even TRU usually, is no problem at all. Stinks when there are three I'd like to get from WM this year between this and the Vintage Collection.

Same here.  For me that feeling dates back to the POTJ days when WalMart had the Masters of the Dark Side 2-pack.  Almost every WalMart exclusive has felt like more of a chore than at any other retailer.

Yeah.  I saw Jayson share that IG photo of someone who found the Mimban Stormtrooper about 30 miles away from me.  But Brickseek isn't showing those in stock anywhere in North Jersey that I can find.

So forget Brickseek, because I just found a bunch of Mimban Stormtroopers at my local Walmart, despite Brickseek saying that they didnít have any in stock.

Nooooooooooooooo! :'( >:(

This is a growing problem. I'm hearing about all kinds of toys showing up at Walmart over on FB that you can't even search on because they don't even appear on their website. Ugh.

The same goes for Walmart.com.  Not listed for sale online and no stock status for local stores.

Was hoping EE would pick this up as well, but I suspect it would have been announced the same as Island Rey.

Noticed an inventory spike for 6" figures at Walmart so I took a chance and swung by late night. Found a whole case of these guys on a shopping cart waiting to be stocked! I helped myself to two of them and enjoyed a very happy ride home.  :)

I just cracked one of them open and it's a really nice figure. The dirt is awesome and the cape fits just right. Happy to have this one off the list!

Probably not.  It seems to be turning up at WalMart stores in some quantities now.

Walmart.com is scalping this thing. I'm not talking about the 3rd party sellers, Walmart proper is selling for $31 and change. Call Walmart, call Hasbro. Protest. I know for a fact that Walmart is contractually not allowed to do this per their exclusives arrangement with Hasbro.

I can't even find it on their site.  What's it listed under?  Mimban Stormtrooper only shows up as the Figuarts figure.
