I hope this is the case for the US.Seems in the past year most of the store exclusives that have sold out in 45 seconds on pre-sales have ended up being fairly easy to track down either by catching canceled items come back up as available or once they hit their release date more become available online and/or in stores.
Well, WE as collectors know this. I'm sure the fan channel partners like EE, BBTS and Dorkside know this. The problem is that PATRICK doesn't seem to understand that fact! They could have kept the other five figures Walmart exclusives. But this trooper should have been made available to everyone. I'm sure it would have done very well, and we have all wanted the Stormtrooper on an ANH card since they released the 2004 VOTC figure.I still can't believe this is a Walmart exclusive. Do they not realize people would buy this figure by the case?
Who knows, that stormtrooper could end up in a future repack wave. That in long run may be better in that EE, dst, Amazon etc could order more solid cases whereas wm or even target, nay be limited to how many they can order, especially in a mix ratio wave case.. One thing hasbro could do, is produce more solid cases and offer on pulse through though retail partner excl page. It's be a 1st for SW.
Also, we could c it recarded for Andor as well
