Today at Walmart, I found TFA Han Solo and Hassk Thug figures. Missed Rey at this Walmart.

Where o where are the new action figures for both 3 3/4 and 6 inch. Two of my Walmart's and 1 Target have crap. Another Walmart and TRU have too many of the wave two's. Hate the first half of the year, because we can't find anything. Seems like they have plenty of Lego's, but never the right kind of Starwars action figures.  ???

Scored the latest wave of 6 inch black series figures at Target here in
California a couple days ago.  Got Luke, Ahsoka, and Kanan.  I really like the Ahsoka figure.

Well after looking all week (and weeks before) and buying the SW VII movie. Still haven't seen any of the new waves for 3 3/4" and 6" figures in the Elmira / Corning, NY area. Pretty sad my local stores can't keep up with new figures, especially when Episode VII DVD came out this week. They all seem to keep adding in the old waves on their shelves. Makes you want to quit collecting. Very sad they don't care about their Star Wars customers.  :'( >:(

Yeah for all the new figures coming out around DVD release hype. I only found 2 Rey's in the go find Luke gear. And that's it no other new stuff.  I still can't find Han 3.75.

Found 6 inch Han Solo and Kanan. Then 3 3/4 inch Rebel Captain Rex and Unkar Plutt. These are what I found in a few stores of TRU's, Targets, Walmarts, and Walgreens in Houston TX area last week. Pretty sad is this all I can find down there.  ??? Checked my local Walmart this morning and they had 1 new item in stock, Takodana Encounter set. Which I have now. Where are the new 3 3/4" wave 4 & 5 sets and 6" wave 5 & 6 sets? Very sporadic they are across the states.

Well so much for finding new StarWars items on May the 4th day.

Went to 3 Walmarts, 1 Target, 1 Kmart, 1 TRU and empty selves is all I found.  ???  :banghead:

This what happens when we live in the southern tier of NYS, which is just as bad as our taxes and leaderships.

Well once again I went for a toy run today and found crap for action figures.  ??? What the *&^(%# HASBLO, can't you do anything right yet?
Went to 2 Walmarts, Kmart, Kohls, Target, TRU.  Did find at TRU a Hot Wheel Car of Admiral Ackbar. Also last Friday went to a different Kmart than above and found the Wave 4 of FINN FN-2187, UNKAR PLUTT, REBEL CAPTAIN REX that are in my possession now.
9 more 3 3/4" figures to go and One 6" Ahsoka Tano too.
Also my local Walmart had 3 Millennium Falcon at $69 on Monday morning. Then at $35 that afternoon and sold out according to a worker when I talked to him on Tuesday afternoon.  :'(

Went to Walmart and found amongst a sea of poes, Finns, and endor Hans, a lone phasma black series 3.75. I was thrilled and put it in my cart and bought it. Only later did I discover that it was a non articulated phasma that I presume someone bought the s a version online and swapped a non articulated one its place   😡 Damn thieves!  I was pissed. I returned it and got my money back.  So other than attempted fraud, I've still not seen the final Walmart exclusive wave of 3.75 figures yet.

Here in Knoxville, the Walmart Ex Black Series with Old Han & Old Leia & Phasma just hit. & am still waiting on the last wave of 3 3/4 with Han, Rex, Rey & others to hit here.. last 3 3/4 figs I have seen were unmasked Kylo & Trooper. It is sad that I can get SS/HTS/GG & even SDCC exs & can not find Hasbro reg. releases..
I will wait until mid September & then I get them where ever I can so that on the September 30th I can be looking forward to new & not looking back for old..

Good luck to all on August 9th on getting SDCC exs. I got them all & am sure I overpaid.. but I do not have to try to camp & refresh cursing & complaining about how I missed the 30 second window before they are sold out... May the Force be with you all & hope everyone gets what they want..

The unmasked Kylo was in same wave with Nein Numb & 1st Order Squad Leader.  I opened that case & ONLY case I have seen in my area in 6 months..
I am glad I got 2 Squad Leaders now.. wish I had got 2 Kylos.. I think I have extra Nein Numb MOC..

I've never seen unmasked Kylo at the store

I've seen unmasked Kylo exactly ONCE. I happened to go into my local Walmart while on lunch break, and there was a fresh case just put on the pegs. Two Kylo, Two Nien Numb and two Squad Leaders. I picked up both Kylo's, one Nein and both Squad Leaders. The second Kylo went out to a good friend who has helped me a lot over the years.

Other than that, I have never seen the wave again.

Force Friday was a little slow early morning for my local Walmart at 4am, nothing new yet. Checked after 8am when they finally stock the Starwars section. Bought all of 1st wave of Rogue One 3 3/4" figures and hot wheel cars. Passed on 6" figures for now. Still no black series wave yet. Bought at Henrietta Walmart a Takodana Figure Set for $5. But did find Royal Guard and Ahsoka at a different Walmart farther away. Yesterday picked up 2 First Order Tie Fighters at local Walmart for $9 each, better than $40. Today went to another Walmart and picked up 2 each of Blue and Black Poe X-Wing Fighter for $13 a piece, better than $50. They still had 3 blue and 7 black x-wings yet. Nice finds so far, now see if I can get my hands on Rogue One Wave 2 Figures.

I found a case of 3 3/4" black series in mason oh.  I grabbed the erg, troopers, and two jyn.   I didn't see any other cases left on the pallet or six inch figs.   
Is it time to go home yet?

Used Walmart.com and the pickup at store option to snag 4x  6" black series Walmart exclusive Scarif troopers. They didn't have a single one on the shelf.  Also found 3.75 jyn and 3x 3.75 death troopers here about a week ago.  Still need black series 3.75 scarif trooper and 3.75 captain Diego what's his name.
