Walmart Issues Press Release for upcoming Exclusives
« on: December 03, 2016, 09:53:18 PM »
It has been confirmed that several stores across the country are already stocking the Exclusive 6" Scarif Stormtrooper as well as the 3.75" wave with Jyn Erso and the Death Trooper Specialist. For those of you who have yet to find them, fear not. This press release, brought to us by our friends over at jeditemplearchives.com, Walmart has clarified release dates for various exclusive items. They also "Claim" that many of the items will be available for SAME DAY in store pick up. With the past history of Walmart and their exclusives, this will surely be a seeing is believing situation. Jake the jump below to read the full press release. Good luck, and May the Force be With YOU! Remember, troopers, United we find!

I have been looking for those Scarif Troopers for weeks & after reading press release & reading about it on fb & I went to Walmart.com
NOT ALL Walmarts will get them..& when I went to order them & pick up at store it told me which stores carry them & which stores do not..
I placed order for 4 & none of the Super Walmarts in Knoxville had any.. I had to drive out of city to smaller Walmart to pick my order up & out of like 10 Walmarts in my region only 3 had Scarif Troopers to fill order & pick them up at store & I have 3 Super Walmarts less than 5 miles from me & check them every early morning & never saw them there & went to Lenoir city Walmart to get my order & there are like 20 hanging on pegs?  If you want Scarif Trooper ? use Walmart.com o find out what stores can fill your order, if you order? they are there on pegs at store that can fill your order... not distributed properly to all Walmarts... I got what I wanted & more ... Happy Hunting...

I drive by a Walmart twice a day, Monday through Friday on my way to and from work. I used brickseek.com to check the SKU number, and it says that store has 18 of the Scarif Trooper. I have gone in almost daily, and as of today, they STILL do not have the figure out on the sales floor. I had someone check the number, and they did say there are 18 in the stock room. But no one can tell me when they will make it to the floor. I do know another store about 20 minutes from my house has them out, as that is where I got my first two. It's going to be easier for me to just make the drive to that store, and get the last two I am looking for.

This is just one reason why Walmart should never be able to acquire exclusive items. They are very poorly managed, and communication from corporate office to store lever concerning the exclusive items is almost non existent. Walmart employees generally look at you like you have three heads when you ask about an item. If they can't just point to it, then it must be "sold out". I even had one lady try to shove a Funko Pop figure in my hand and claim that was the figure I was looking for!

I can also confirm that not every store will get exclusives. Last year, when the Battlefront figure came out, only ONE of the three local stores got it in stock. There was one left the day I found it.
