Walmart 6" Clone Wars Micro Series
« on: July 21, 2021, 12:02 PM »
Jeff posted this info in the vintage section as well, but there are also three all new 6" figures coming as part of this.

- ARC Trooper
- Mace Windu
- General Grievous

Its interesting that they're making three all new sculpts here while the Vintage versions are just repacks.  While I'll always take new figures, I'd sure rather have something more current from Rogue One, Solo, TROS, etc.

If they keep this going I sure hope they make a Yoda, and ideally a deluxe figure of Yoda on Kybuck.

I'm genuinely curious to see how the Tartakovsky look for Grievous gets translated into this Black Series release.  Because his look in this incarnation of the Clone Wars was a significant departure from live action as well as the 2008 series.

I'd be happy if they just upscaled the 3.75" version they brought out years ago.

There's no way they DON'T do repacks/repaints. Grievous is totally going to be a repack of the D1 figure, just with a white paintjob and white cape (and probably a $40 MSRP)

And when will the 30 second window for preordering these figures begin? During tomorrow’s big “Walmart Collector Con”?

ARC Trooper is up for pre-order.

He was for about 30 seconds. Ripped out of my cart when trying to pay…total BS.

I got the other two but really wanted the full set and I’m sure he will never come back up again like the exclusive Rex I missed also.  ::)

And pre-sold out, but Grievous is now up.

They seem to be popping in and out of stock.  Maybe cart abandons?

I'm back at work at a real job, so the days of being able to log in throughout the morning to even attempt to get these are long gone for me.  Back to Ebay I guess...

Despite all the reasons I've read elsewhere that I should hate these, I really like how they look now that we've got actual product pics. More disappointed now I missed Mace.

Yeah, I hope these make it to the store or back online as I missed Mace as well.

I missed both Mace and the ARC Trooper during the pre-orders.  I added these to my list on the Walmart app, so I can periodically check the online listings.  So far I haven't seen these come back in stock since they were initially offered over the summer.

The execution on these looks better than I had expected.  I actually really like the way that Grievous came out, and thankfully that's the one figure I was able to preorder.
