I have been looking everywhere online and offline trying to buy one for retail pricing and have no idea how to find one without taking a day off work and standing around a store.

Any suggestions?

Use and UPC 045496590758  or DPCI 207-29-7001 to check Walmart and Target stock

What an extremely impressive army and video. Kudos to you Anton and thanks for sharing the video!

As the front page is reporting, the Landspeeder and Rey's Speeder are getting marked down considerably at Walmart. In my area of Chicagoland, Brickseek shows all stores with these in stock have them down to $45 with one exception where it was $30. Can you guess where I went today?  ;D That store also had the Centerpiece sets for $20 but I have no interest in them and left them behind. Love it when Wal-Mart gets clearance crazy! Hell I found Vader Legacy pack for $7 the other day, can't beat that!

Has anyone tried to see if the head from the Rey/Guard two pack fits on the Walmart 3.75" SA body?

I have heard you can swap them pretty easy, but I don't have the SA version yet to verify that... :-\

I did a head swap this evening. The 5poa head is a little loose in the SA body so you will need to fill the head a bit for a tight fit. As such the SA head will need a little work to open it up to fit on the 5poa head if you are so inclined

I'm trying to say this in the way I'm thinking of it for myself and not coming off as questioning other's collecting decisions (I hate when people do that).

I can't ever imagine being at a point where I'd rather have random droids over brand new characters from the movies. Even if they are 5 POA.

To each their own.

Same here, some of the 5POAs are rather good, especially those in the Rebels line and the RO 2 packs. Plus K2SO is sweet. More articulation would be great, but until Hasbro does many of these 5POAs will do the trick. Also the Droid Factory line from Disney is fantastic, can't say anything bad about it

You know what Nick? That's exactly what's keeping me "in the game" - the idea that, "hey that character was entertaining or has a cool design, if they never do them again, I will have totally missed out" - like Saw Gerrera from Rogue One - that 5POA figure as far as something that stands on a shelf, looks AMAZING - would I have preferred to get a SA Saw in the WM TBS 3.75" line of course! I'll settle for the 5POA one though.

What happened?

What he said. What drama did the blowhards at JTA stir up this time?

Currently, has this listed as $29.99 and available on October 1. You cannot pre order it, but hopefully that price and date will stick

There are all 3 per, I can confirm this myself.

Really? Thanks for the intel, crisis averted and makes me feel a lot better. I guess he didn't see everything as I doubt there would be two different cases available - 8 figures vs 12

A buddy got this wave and the case breakdown he found is very disturbing...

Rose x3
Guards x2
Stormtrooper x2
Luke x1!!!!

Seriously a messed up breakdown, Rose will be collecting dust until Episode 9 and one of the most desired figures in recent history is relegated to 1 per case. What a mess!

Target's old 2-packs VANISHED, IIRC. They had 20+ still at full price a week ago.  Strange.

Check the clearance sections/endcaps. All the stores in my area moved their Rogue One 2 packs but left them at full price. I was so sure with the sets not being clearanced they were gonna re-use the DPCI for the TLJ sets. Who knows what they're doing...

I sit corrected, thanks for the comparison pic Jeff. Indeed, the sculpts are different but I think as JJ pointed out the poses are almost identical. So without having the TFA Han in hand, it was easy for me to think the Bespin Han was just a simple repaint. In the end, it's still a pretty crappy looking figure - seems to be the case with many of the OT 5 POA figures.

the Bespin Han - it's a repaint of the TFA Han which doesn't look good at all.

He may look wonky thanks to the paint aps, but this Han is not a TFA repaint.  He looks all-new; even different from the 2014 Bespin Han sculpt.

I did not have a TFA Han with me to compare, but from what I saw close-up the Bespin Han looked very much like a repaint. Especially in the head and arms. I did look up photos and I don't recall if the coat was the same, that may have changed. So perhaps it is a mix of new and old parts, maybe come Friday someone can post a comparison photo after they buy the 2 pack and we can see how it comes es out

Does anyone have any suggestions for a case for one of these?

Hard case or clamshell?

Anything that'll hold it in place and protect it

Check out GW Acrylic, they make great cases and just released a 40AC case...

Saw a lot of the TLJ line at Wizard World Chicago today including the 2 packs. The Rey/Guard set looks really nice and the sculpt on the Fett is solid. What struck me as kinda crappy was the Bespin Han - it's a repaint of the TFA Han which doesn't look good at all.

Thanks Jeff. Disappointing to hear that we're not likely to see any other brick and mortars get the TBS TLJ figures. My concern for my part of Chicagoland that with the TFA Han wave still filling up pegs, the Rogue One waves barely showing up, and the Proto Fett wave never appearing there is such a bottleneck at the distribution centers we won't see the TLJ figures next month. From what I've seen around the net, it appears this could be the case around much of the US, such a shame...
