So far, I've bought the following from the 2018 TVC line:

Stormtrooper x 3
Hoth Rebel X 2
Snoke x 3
Kylo Ren x 1

I'm starting to see a few more Stormtroopers in the wild with good paint apps, so I have been getting them. Great figure.

I'll probably end up getting one of each figure in the 2018 series to keep carded, at least for now.

TVC???
how much where those going for?

i have a 2nd hand/video game/comic store in my area that has a lot of TVC ranging from $20-$30 HOWEVER they have applied their stickers directly to the cards which sort of cancels the price they think they can get for them.

still might take some old game systems up there for trade in and be like "listen you guys have ruined these cards buy putting these large stickers on the front, how bout you trade me all 10 for this Ps3 and wii u" lol

I think he had $24.99 sticker price, but I was able to get them for a lower price... I bought a lot of other stuff that day for my kids too - I think I paid $15 per figure. His stickers are on the side bubble - which are hard to get off, but I am an opener anyway....

I've picked up 3 more Stormtroopers over the past week with excellent paint apps thanks to the Target displays.

Grabbed another Stormtrooper. I figure 10 years from now I might be really glad I have gotten quite a few of these.

Well, I had heard the stories from others but had yet to see it myself until yesterday evening! Straight out of the box and to the clearance pegs! Not as drastic of a "clearance" as some reports I have heard, but the entire wave was there! I bought the Jyn to keep carded and left everything else (I have a number of Hoth troopers already and decided to leave it for someone else). It is just amazing how badly Wal-mart is handling the SW brand in general! A number of the WM stores around here have yet to put out/carry any Solo product and the ones that have don't even have the basic figures or the VC, they literally have just have the 2 packs, the mini falcon, FL 2.0, and the 6" stuff. It is just unbelievable that they are still getting exclusive figures with how badly they have handled things the last few years!

There is really no reason to stop at Walmart for Star Wars in my area either these days. It's a total joke. Few stores received any TVC to speak of, and really the Solo stuff ain't moving, so they don't see any need to order more...

For TVC, I heard they officially removed it from the planograms until Wave 2.... maybe because they viewed Wave 1 as repacks of the 3.75" TBS that some stores still have in stock?

Star Wars is dead at Walmart right now... No TRU... it's basically turned into Target or online shopping. I blame most of this on Disney/Hasbro and the terrible decision to mainline 5poa... these people have driven their cash cow into the ground and are now they better be scrambling to unbury it.

The scary thing is that Walmart continues to get exclusives. There’s two TVC figures and a TBS (am I forgetting anything?). I’m sure those will be easy to find.

But, yeah, I find there’s no point shopping at Walmart.

Yeah... I guess with TRU leaving, and Kmart pretty much dead, the exclusives are going to go to Walmart more.

Walmart has NEVER been good at managing exclusives - and Hasbro really has never cared. As long as the buyer (being Walmart) orders it, Hasbro is happy.

Hopefully the return of KB Toys this fall works out well, and in a couple years they will be a viable partner for this sort of thing, but who knows really.

Gamestop might be another option for Hasbro...?

Game stop might not be a bad idea, they are usually pretty good at putting product out and/or ordering it for you! Aside from the VC Snoke and HRT I purchased from Wal-Mart in April, pretty much every new SW purchase I have made has come from Target and a couple from GS.

Also, I came across this, this morning and it just felt appropriate lol!

I just wish they'd forego store exclusives altogether. :roll: Make them available everywhere.
