I received a shipping notice for one Leia I ordered and one Scout Walker driver.  Should be here by Saturday!
This is the way.

I got the July 3rd delivery date, too.  We'll see.  Walmart's order fulfillment seems to be all over the place.

Mine is expected eod 6/29, decent time from Georgia to Nor Cal. My last 2-3 WM figure orders arrived from Southern California (on-Trac) in under 40 hours.

It said July 3, but just got an email saying they've been delivered, but there's no package out front.

EDIT:  We moved last month and I think they got delivered to my old address... got to go over there to pick them up.

I just chatted with walmart to change my other TVC preorder with the Tusken Raider and what not, and they said they aren't able to update shipping addresses on orders.  When I moved, I updated pre-orders with Hasbro, Super 7, Target, Entertainment Earth, Amazon... no problems.

But Walmart's only option was to cancel my order.   ::)

What shipper does Walmart use?  Because I think you can get UPS or FedEx to update your delivery address.  After I registered with both of those carriers I was getting shipping updates from them when they received tracking information about my orders. 

With FedEx you can probably do a Hold at location.  For UPS, they might have different options.

For this order, it looks like Fed Ex, but they've used different shipping companies in the past.

Yeah, it's FedEx.  I can call and try to re-route it, but it's also only a 15 minute walk to the old place, so I'll probably just leave it alone and walk over when they say it's delivered.

it's just insanely dumb that Walmart can't change an address.

That's probably because each figure is coming in its own envelope.

I only got 1 shipping notice, but 3 packages.  Each package was different:  1 came in a padded mailer, another came in a box in which the figure snugly fit into , and the last was a bigger box.  They aren't perfect, card-wise, but livable for me.

I had to do some digging to find shipping info, but something is in fact on the way.  No shipping notification emails here.  And what's in that shipment, or what condition it arrives in is anybody's guess!

I received my two AT-ST drivers (was only expecting one compared to their website), and I still have tracking for one of the Endor Leia's expected to be here tomorrow.

So weird.

Mine said July 3rd as well, but got them within the next two days of my shipping notice. I ordered 2 each of Leia, Paploo and AtSt driver. For some reason they shipped Paploo separate. Leia and AtST driver arrived in a box and in surprisingly good condition. I didn't even get a padded envelope for the Paploo's and the delivery guy tosses the non-padded envelope against me door. Needless to say, Paploo did not survive.  :'(
