Found the last wave (TLJ figures) at Tuesday Morning. They are selling them for $4.99. I grabbed 2 Praetorian Guards, 2 FO Executioner, and 2 of old Jedi Luke.

Oh man, considering how hard a time I had finding the Scariff trooper this is a kick in the nuts! I wonder if the executioner stormtrooper/master luke/etc wave will show up there? And this is why walmart should not be allowed to have exclusives. They specifically requested to carry this line, and look how they handled it.
The TLJ wave of figures (that you mention) is at Tuesday Morning stores. I picked up those exact figures there a week ago. They are selling them for $4.99.

Ahsoka, General Lando & Ackbar former Wally exclusives found at a Burlington Coat Factory store for $2.99 each. Johnson City, NY.
I don't believe the Scarif Stormtrooper is in this assortment.

Drove from St Louis to Oklahoma City last week. Couldn't find the Sandtrooper wave at Ross to save my life. Did pick up 11 Jyn Ersos at a Walmart in Tulsa for $1 each. They were on clearance for $2.50 (after over a year at $4) and I talked a manager down to $1 if I cleared his stock for him. Will repurpose some, others will go to Toys for Tots this Christmas.

Keep 2 for the future. She was never carried forward and her low adhesion bubble issue was never fixed.
She'll be difficult to find in near-mint condition in 5 years.

Ended up with 6 ERG figures across 3 stores. 1 store didn't have any 3.75" figures. All I saw was ERG, Ashoka, Acbar, and Lando at both stores. There were about 3-4 of each.

It should also be mentioned that they had 6" BS figures. All 3 stores seemed to have the same assortment. 1 each of Krennic, TFA C-3P0 (red arm), Death Trooper, Shore Trooper, Jyn, and Cassian. Picked up 3 Shore Troopers as well. Not a bad haul.

So what's the story behind this? Walmart asked Hasbro for an exclusive line. Didn't this mess up or delay the relaunch of TVC? In either case, Walmart wanted this, then handled it soooooo incompetently that Ross, Tuesday Morning, online retailers, and BURLINGTON COAT FACTORY (?!?!?!!??) got the merchandise that Walmart should have sold? Good job Walmart, good job. Further proof that Walmart should not be given exclusives. Oh! And a friend of mine sent me an article where it talks about how Walmart wants to have a special collector's section in some stores where it's just all collectible stuff. Ha Ha! Good one Walmart!

Oh, they'll have a section, but it will be almost completely empty 90% of the year. :awesome:

BURLINGTON COAT FACTORY???
Never in my life would have thought to check there. I guess I have another stop to make next time I go out. Thanks.

Ross has been pretty dry... Except I found a lone Ponda Baba for $2.99. Now I have three of him, one for each of his arm options.

I'm planning to customize an HK-50 arm to fit into the dismembered arm socket, for a post-ANH Ponda.

IKR? Burlington! lol
Out of all the "unusual" places you might find action figures, this place wasn't even on the radar! That said, I'm not exactly needing any of those 3 years later anyways.

I agree though, it definitely makes you wonder why these never made it to Stores while they were actually an Exclusive. Though I guess it's a good thing for those still needing them, and at that price you cant go wrong. Especially as an investment? lol

I’m needlessly army building. I may try to get 2 more IRGs to make an even 10 (I have 1 TVC version and bought 2 when that wave first hit). I wouldn’t mind a few more Scariff troops, Death Troopers or Sandtroopers if those hit beyond Ross.

Not a ton of luck so far-- my Burlington had only a lone Ackbar.
Ross turned up a Tusken Raider. Always good to build the ranks.
There are no Tuesday Morning stores in my neck of the woods.
With my luck, I decided to go with Entertainment Earth's awesome Black Friday deal-- an entire wave of four-- TLJ Luke, Rose, Stormie Executioner, Praetorian Guard-- for $16 shipped.
I never saw any of these in the wild except for Rose-- and left her sitting-- so this works out nicely. Just gotta track down one more Praetorian.

Found 2 Death Troopers and 2 Jyn Erso figures at Ross this morning. They were $3 each. Picked up the Death Troopers, obviously, and left the 2 Jyn's.

Ross finds: 3 Death Troopers, 1 scarif squad leader, 1 general Lando, 1 Admiral Ackbar. Also saw Cassian and Jyn but didn't need them.

Oh sure, rub it in. :)

The Ross stores in my area have nothing but dust bunnies in the toy isle. The whole store looks like a tornado hit a yard sale.
We must be going to the same stores in Austin because there is NO BETTER description than ‘tornado hit a yard sale’ for the stores I have been in recently. I did find a Cassian at one. Instant custom fodder.

Even though I work in downtown Austin I do most of my hunting in the Round Rock area. Sounds like Ross is pretty much the same throughout the area.

The stores in my area look about the same. I'd say I find something worth my while 1 in 5 trips, usually with some serious digging involved. I'll be sure to rub it in some more next time i find something!:twisted:

Every time you guys find something at Ross you are rubbing it in haha

we have Marshall’s or Burlington Coat Factory. Best I’ve ever done was 5 royal guards at Burlington for 2.99 each.
