Got my TVC Mando Maldo Kreis Deluxe set today. The snow highlights on Mando are pretty nice. The silver color on the Beskar is top and the rocker ankles are really nicely done.
The big spider actually has some articulation. Four of the legs are set, so it can always stand and the other four legs have a ball-joint at the "shoulder"-body joint, so you can pose those legs a bit. All in all a nice set. I'm not big on the spiders and all, but it's a cool deluxe set and looks good carded as well. I thought the card would look corny, but it's actually pretty cool.
So, where are these guys? It was too good to be true to have it shipped 1 day after the preorder.
the 1st one i ordered on launch day said to be shipped next day but since has been delayed. The 2nd one i ordered that friday afternoon said eta 1/17 and statis still has not been altered since i last checked a week or 2 ago. So i'm hoping the 1/17 date is the date for both, but of course, WM will ship separately from different warehouses.So, where are these guys?

Your guess is as good as anyone's. There hasn't been any info on this arriving at U.S. ports that I've seen, but that doesn't necessarily mean they haven't already arrived.Do we know if this is actually expected to ship Jan 24th? Or is that just another random Walmart date that will eventually delay?
In truth I could live without them because at some point we know that an unmasked Din would eventually show up somewhere, may not have got the Cantomo or Bars of Beskar but it's not like we've gotten every tiny accessory ever for the past 40 years with other characters. Same with Ahsoka for that matter, they simply included her cloak that should have been on the basic figure and tossing an owl and lantern. Which are cool BTW just not extremely needed in the face of potential other figures we need made.That's true, without WM, these wouldn't be released, but with that said, aren't most of the TVC exclusives that WM gets stinkers? Thinking back, their Kenner 96 releases were mostly duds, old sculpts being recycled at full price. Same with this set, previously released figures with new accessories basically. I don't know if it says more about WM or just Hasbro in general because of how cheap they are with exclusives - much less perceived product value with a higher pricepoint. I wonder if the line could survive without WM altogether?
