picked one up at the Milford Kmart today - the box was banged up and the tape was missing on one side of the box - inspected the contents of the box at the register (got the all clear from an employee).. all was there.

So I can say - Not bad ! The dirt detail was not as bad as I have seen other reviews.. here are some shots to compare against the Target version.. just wish the pilots were available.

I hate to buy vehicles without figures but this one seemed to be a must have..

according to Hasbro slides - they are on the shelves now... maybe in a galaxy far far away - but in reality - October - November.

I seen the AT-ST at the Target in Rosemont, IL (near O'Hare) and wasn't too impressed with it, like Rick I'd rather see the other figure sets get bought first.

I was at other fellow Starwars sites that they are just starting seeing in Kmart the Ewok and Driver 2-pack now. I will have to look this week to see if my 2 Kmarts have them so I can buy buy buy.

I was cruising south of Midway Airport and it said a Kmart was a few miles down and I had a second so what the hell...  Ends up this was another closed location, and it's just too damn bad. It's the first time in years I've wanted EVERY Kmart exclusive.  >:(  Ain't this about a bitch!  :-\

Yeah they seem to close kmarts left and right anymore.  Back when I was a kid in the 80's, Kmart was the place to shop, before target and Walmart took their market share fair and square.  But when competition moved in they let their stores fall into disrepair and couldn't compete price wise.  They made the one in my closest town into a movie theatre, back in the 90's.  I think within the next 5-10 years they won't exist anymore.

It's my hope that maybe Sears will carry these items, I have heard that the AT-ST was seen at one. We still have a Sears in town. :)

Checked my 2 Kmarts yesterday and no luck on the 2 pack figures. We are always behind the others. The Scout Walkers are gone at 1 and the other K somebody hidden it behind another large toy. So I broke down and decided in buying it now before the figures, because I might not find it again before Christmas. Spice, I will try to hook you up when I find the figures. My parents checked a couple in the Indy area. They are gone already at those 2 stores, especially at 1, somebody bought 6 of the 2 packs that morning before they got there.  :'(  Probably on Ebay now.  :fumingmad:

I still haven't seen them at my Kmart. If anyone feels like helping out a fellow trooper...

I know Penter's looking for both sets. I only want the imps.

Found three two packs of the ATST pilots today at my local KMART, but unfortunately no ewoks and I really want the ewoks.  Now there are two two-packs left. ;)

I have an extra Ewok pack.

Opened the drivers, the pic on the front shows each driver has a holster. That is not the case. But awesome figs anyway!

the holster would have been great but the drivers would not have been able to sit in the vehicles.. so leaving them out was probably a good decision... I would love to see that though as some custom imperial infantry.

I saw only ONE AT-ST at the only location I've seen and and the box was beat.  Still no signs of the 2-packs at any of the locations that are still in my area.  :-\  It's been a month since Hasbro told us they were going to "get the distribution thing right" and I've seen NO CHANGE at all.  ::)

My local k-mart now has 2 AT-STs not bad on the packaging. no more 2-packs showing up in the area (scanned the UPC and no stores showed them in the region but that can change if they get more...). Has distribution been fixed??  I have to say no.
