Now that wal mart has ushered out the new trash compactor statue sets, does anyone know when the real wal mart figure sets will be released. I'm talking about the Cantina sets. We were supposed to see Wuhur, Evezan and Ktik. Anyone have the info or insight on this, and maybe beyond. Would mind seeing Derrik Janniko with a curved part of the bar. I can wish right?

I picked up a pre-released Kitik on eBay about a month ago. Haven't seen any of the 2nd wave in shops here in the UK, although I dare say the US will see them first.

Have you received the figure kdp? No mention of wave 2 being found anywhere yet, that I've seen. How is it?

The lack of finding figures anymore is starting to drive me from collecting....I just hope these are going to be easier to find than the Holiday set or Ephant Mon/Yoda/Destroyer Droid.

hey sentinal, I'm sure these will be easy to find, and take heart Yoda/Destroyer and Ephant should get easier to find after the holidays. The holiday set is a different story though.

All i ever see anymore are the Yoda/Destroyer Droid. GO check out a KB Toys, i see them everywhere. Ephant is a different story.

I see Yoda/Destroyer Droid frequently as well at KB. They are usually next to the Padme Pilot and other pegwarmers.

My Kay Bee is still at the Lott Dodd wave, although at least they're not at the Royal Guard, Taun We wave the local Wal-Mart is at.
Horrible... I can't wait to get the new Cantina sets just so I don't have to look their for a long while.

Don't forget about the Wal-Mart exclusive TIE Bomber if you missed it the first time. They should be getting the SAGA version in February.

LOL;)

I'm fortunate enough to have that one, although that has to do to travelling to many Wal-mart's searching it out.

The first three Cantina Packs are down to $7 at my local Wal Mart a month or so after getting them in (which was still very late!). I will buy them at $5.

How much are they in your local store?

$10.99 and they never were on sale. Either some of you guys are full of it, or all WM's other than the ones in Southern CA are outlets. All I hear is oh my WM has SW figures on sale, oh my WM has the 12" Luke and Yoda 2 pack from 1 year ago. I'm sick of it!! I hate WM!!!! Ok I'm done.

I guess I'll make a trip to KB to see if I can find them.

Sorry to be late in replying, but yes, my Kitik arrived a couple of months ago - here's the thread -

HOWEVER....

I've just heard a rather alarming rumour from my local supplier (who's usually very accurate about these matters) that Wal-Mart have CANCELLED the second wave of these Cantina sets, so Kitik, Evazan & Wuher are unlikely to be available for the forseeable future!!!
I really hope this isn't true, for the sake of everyone who's not been able to get their hands on these yet.

It would surprise me if WM DIDN'T cancel Wave 2 of the cantina sets, with all the Wave 1 sets pegwarming at present. I just don't think they sold all that well.

Maybe that's it.
The first wave hardly reached even the specialist shops over here in the UK in large numbers, though.

They are coming, tenative date is Febuary from everything I've seen. The reason there has been a delay on them, is actually more due to the fact that Wal-Mart is in the middle of a reset for their Toy Department. That's also why many areas don't have the Trash Compactor sets out yet. And while the 1st Asst. is pegwarming in some areas, in others they are sold out. :)

Are Wuher and Dr. Evazan different sculpts in the sets coming out than in the priginal releases?

Beast

Wuher's the same sculpt, other then his hand being modified to remove the glass. The paintjob on the new Wuher is superior though. He's more grungy and dirty then the original butterscotch Wuher. :)

Dr. Evazan has new legs and arms, but what appears to be the same body and head. The head seems to have been changed a bit, and he does look a bit better then the Cinema Scene one. :)

I'm glad they removed the glass from Wuher's hand so we can put a glass in his hand instead.:confused: :crazed: .

Hehehehe....maybe he should come with "angry gesturing battle action" to get those unwanted droids the heck out of the bar!

They should put the sets out as a regular addition to the line if Wal-Mart cancelled. The first wave weren't good choices to begin with. The second wave is a better selection, one new figure altogether and two central characters to the story of the cantina, can't have a bar without the bartender and the Dr. is the baddie who stood up to old Ben and paid for it. I think it's more likely that hasbro pulled the sets back. Everything else is behind schedule so it's highly likely that the cantina sets will show up but just later. We're only just starting to see stuff showing up now that was due out in December. That's basic figures, The Shuttle was delayed, the star tours wave three is delayed or cancelled, The sandcrawler is delayed or cancelled, the green A-wing was pushed right back, the imperial forces 4-pack was pushed back or cancelled, we-re halfway through january and still no real sign of the basic assortments showing up in any number that were due out this month. Hasbro are holding back for toyfair in february but they said they were cutting their presence there down and so that means they aren't showing much. It's all gone pear shaped suddenly. Something doesn't feel right about all this. Seems like something hit the fan and then suddenly everything got halted. There's just dribs and drabs coming out in a trickle where there should be a flood of stuff according to what's going to be on offer.
I think there's going to be a lot more cancelled for this year or pushed right back to the end of the year than some people would like.

Hasbro is just baiting us. Everything that is exciting is being pushed back to make us anxious. It keeps us hooked while the rest of the garbage is released.
