I've been checking the link on and off today and finally hit one of the magic time slots where a pre-order was open. 

My order says it'll ship on 5/16 - if that's true, I don't mind waiting a couple weeks to get this one knocked off my list without having to hit Walmart endlessly this summer looking for this set. :P

Well, if the JTA post about this item from May 11th is to be believed, it looks like I may have missed this item and my only shot may be scoring it at retail in the fall. Which considering the state of all my local WalMarts, means no chance whatsoever.  :'(

I guess my plans for getting three of these (one to keep MIB, one to open everything, one to open and keep the figures MOC to put with my MOC TVC collection) will not come to pass, I'll be lucky if I get one to add to my collection.

Are we really expecting this to be that tough to find?

It's Walmart. Only God knows if it'll ever show up in a store

It seems to me itís in certain siteís best interest to keep claiming things are going to be super rare, super hard to get, or limited in availability in some way, without ever saying why they think this.  They just do because I guess thatís more interesting to readers.  Itís a tad early for the sky to be falling though.

Ditto.  Was pleasantly surprised to see the charge pop up on my card tonight.

You're right and guess what happened? This morning it was up and available for order again.

I was alerted by a friend and I jumped on the WalMart app, which I had set up with the item on my "list" and quickly added it to my cart and purchased.

So much for reporting "facts". The post about stock being "depleted" was nothing more than fear-mongering.

I got charged, and it says it will be ready for store pick-up today after 6PM, but I'm still in "preparing order" limbo... :-[

Iím supposed to get mine today, but have yet to receive a shipping notice.  Mailman has already been by, so Iím sure Iím not getting it today.  As long as I get it, Iím fine.

Has this ever, ever happened before with Wal-Mart??? 

I got mine today too and I think you're right Nick.  I don't recall any time, ever, that you could pre-order something from Wal-Mart and have it delivered to your home.  Heck, you generally can't even order a mainstream Star Wars collectible from their web site and have it delivered with any reliability.

Let's hope this starts a trend.
