I was covering a high school football game in the middle of nowhere last night and stopped by their local WM on the way home. Ended up grabbing a Luke if anyone needs one. They had a TON of Roses but I passed on them all assuming it would be easiest for people to find.

There was a Executioner Stormie there but it had been swapped out with a 5POA First Order Stormie  ::)

Thanks for the help...I managed to swap the feet on my Luke.  I know a few of you were probably losing sleep wondering if I were able to get it done.   ;D

Amazing how well a figure can stand if his feet are in the correct legs!
This is the way.

I was curious haha.  Hate those factory f ups.  I've gotten backward crotches too.  Swapping the legs can be a little trickier because of the shape of the thigh joint post.

THEY HAD LUKE AT THE NEAREST WAL-MART TO ME

The ROTJ one from 2015.   :P

No sign they ever got in the new wave. But, hey, if I wanted to pay $12 for a FO stormtrooper...but you can get them for $6 loose from china...so...

That's the Luke from the Skiff pack!

lol that's a moldy oldy but yeah he did have a backwards crotch.  That was the norm for that guy. 

I bet a lot of people have figs with backward crotch pieces under skirts that cover it and they never notice.  I've seen it popping custom fodder here and there.

Found a couple Scarif Troopers today at Walmart in the St Louis metro.  These will likely be hitting hard now that it's time for the TLJ wave to be hitting hard.

Has there been any Announcements of newer figures than the wave with Luke, Rose, Executioner, and Praetorian?

Wish Id find a ton of these but alas still absent here.  My WM just put out the repack wave nobody but one guy was asking for pretty much.  ::)

No. That should be the last wave before the switch to TVC.

If that's the last wave then, I'm surprised there hasn't been any refresh shipments. At least in my area it seems to be a case of each store got their one case and then that's it. Now the only thing still hanging around is the Rose figure.

I would echo the same thing here around Minneapolis. I monitor the local inventories of 12-15 walmart stores and it seems most stores only received one TLJ case, if any.

I'll be so glad when I find my last figure from this set, the Praetorian guard, and be done with ever having to step into a Walmart. Our stores are so poorly managed here, at least the Toy Departments are, it's embarrassing.

I picked up Ponda Baba, the Tusken Raider and the Sandtrooper a few days ago.  Even though they scanned at full price ($11.97 each) in the store I was able to get the cashier to price match them all to the sale prices on Walmart.com.  And doing that I wound up getting two of them for $4.97 each and one for $6.97.  All you have to do is have your smartphone handy with the links to their listings on Walmart.com.
