Walmart 3.75" Skywalker Saga 2-Packs
« on: September 27, 2019, 12:18 AM »
I know some have seen these on Twitter, but now that the gag order is lifted I can start a thread.  Click on the thumbnails below to check out these commemorative 2-packs of gold-painted versions of existing 5POA sculpts that no one wanted!  Looks for future sets from the PT and the ST (TROS = C3PO, R2D2, BB8).

STAR WARS SKYWALKER SAGA 3.75-INCH Figure 2-Packs
(HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: Starting at $14.99/Available: Fall 2019)

Kids and collectors alike can imagine the biggest battles and missions in the STAR WARS Galaxy with figures from the STAR WARS SKYWALKER SAGA collection!

Nobody:
Hasbro: Stuff that didnít sell the first time, now in gold!

Seriously, I would have loved to be at the meeting where Hasbro sold these to Wally. Whomever made the pitch could sell ice to Eskimos.

Isn't there also a C3PO/R2D2/BB8 3-pack? I thought IGN had pics in their unboxing coverage but I can't seem to find it now.

I might buy that one just for R2.

Yes, they showed the 3PO/R2/BB8 set in the live stream. Maybe that is where you saw it.

Here is the rumor list for the other sets -

TPM - Qui-Gon & Maul
AOTC - Yoda & Mace Windu
ROTS - Anakin & Obi-Wan

TFA - Finn & Poe
TLJ - Rey & Kylo
TROS - C3PO, R2D2, & BB8

Waves 2 and 3 were officially announced by Hasbro at their NYCC panel.  Rumor mill was close, but not quite right.  Maul is with Yoda, not Qui-Gon.  Mace is with Jango, not Yoda.  Should be going up for pre-order tomorrow, Monday 10/7.

Just got preorders in the the first three.  Fingers crossed again that they fulfill them.  I think if you get in early enough they generally do.

Donít worry when walmart orders tons more of this and not a single extra TVC case, you will see these collecting dust in clearance aisles

I got my first one of these today and realized I'd never ordered the rest.  TFA is sold out for some reason, but I was able to pre-order the other 5.

EDIT:  Refreshed the page and it let me order the TFA one... weird.

Snagged the PT sets today when I was out looking for the Jedi Luke and Spirit Yoda 6" figures.

Went online and ordered 2x each of the ST sets just to not have to go crazy for those in a month. Wouldn't mind scoring a couple extra of the droid set for the Build-a-Droid R2 in all gold, just to add to my B.A.D. collection.
