So far, I only got Luke, though the others are supposed to be here today as well.

I originally thought I would receive my order with Luke, the Death Star Droid and Tusken Raiders today.  But it looks like a lot of shipments got put on hold due to the remnants of Ida making their way through PA and NJ over the past 24 hours.

I just got 3/4ths of the order… just waiting on my second Tusken Raider.

I really like the Luke. I'm only gonna display with helmet on so don't really care about that.

DS Droid and Luke yesterday and Tuskens on Wed. Walmart is as Walmart does with the quality of packing and separate shipments. Happy to have them, though.

Might need to grab another Luke. Face deco on mine makes him look like a mannequin.

None of my figures came mint but I open anyway so whatever. 

Tusken with updates elbows is nice enough, but not really that special if the previous figure didn’t bother you.  The weapons are abysmal though.  Insanely soft plastic, and wilt over time.  They’ll be swapped out with other figure’s accessories.  Really disappointing plastic choice.

The Luke figure is a really nice portrait of MH and the removable helmet isn’t a real issue since there are like a thousand Jedi Lukes out there.  The head would swap easily with the last DS Luke we got and most have an extra.  It would’ve been nice had they included an extra helmetless head but not really expected either.  If anything, given Ahsoka and Maul, it makes me long for ground up resculpts of Jedi figures haha.  The poncho is a nice update too, and the accessories are nice.  The blaster isn’t even necessary really, but I’ll take it. 

The Death Star droid is the odd surprise.  The added weathering detail goes a long way to make this figure unique to his BAD counterpart.  Very welcome update.  Makes it kind of like two different figures to me.  He’ll display much nicer with Jawas with the weathering.

I’m curious to see how they get to the rest of these rerelease-esque figures as we go forward.

My order arrived in 4 mailer envelopes and 3 boxes, all originating from the same fulfillment center. You really can’t make this **** up.

All told I got 4 figures that I would consider mint, 1 was borderline, and the other 5 are openers.  As annoying as this experience was, it’s still preferable to the craziness of trying to find Walmart exclusive figures in the store.

I got my last one today.

I'm starting to wish I'd ordered a few more Tusken Raiders to put with the Mandalorian stuff...

Yeah two more packages showed at my house...  no clue what they are as I’ve lost track of stuff but I think at least one more Tusken and another Luke. 

Glad it’s out of the way now.

My order of three Tusken Raiders and one Death Star Droid showed up last night.

This is the way.

The Tusken Raider is back in stock if any of you are like me and we’re hoping to pick up a few more…

Did the same, though at the time it said 5 left... I was worried I'd get 0, but they're already shipped!

It’s tempting to pick up more Tusken Raiders.  But the frozen joints are a real deterrent.

Nice.  I ordered two the first time and decided I wanted more for the Mando section… picked up four more to make it an even dozen.
