I was reading a Wal-Mart Flyer this morning and they had these in it. Said right beside the add that they were exclusive to Wal-Mart. Now, this is a Canadian W-Mart so, has anyone down south seen these in their outlets?

I just noticed the 30 in the upper rh corner so maybe I should have posted this on the 30th anniversary page. Oh Well, questions can be answered on any page, right??

That's a nice looking tin set, S-Trooper. Good find.

I'm not sure if they've been spotted down here yet but I'm quite sure it's not a Canadian exclusive. I've heard of these but didn't know of a certain release date on 'em.

It definitely looks good though.

Release date for the set is supposed ot be December. They should be hitting soon, wouldnt be suprised if it is on Black Friday.

The Target shuttle was also slated for Dec and has been found in Los Angeles, so take it for what its worth about release dates.

Probably not Canadian only Release. But, the flyer did say WalMart Exclusive and it is very unusual for us Canucks to get anything on the shelves before it hits south of the border. Regardless, it is a nice set for the old collection. Also, I have seen some different sets on Ebay, listed out of the UK and they say TRU Exclusive on the listing. Maybe 2007 is going to be a good year for us SW collectors eh?

still have yet to find these at retail. the only place I have seen them is in comic shops that want $75 for the set and on Ebay. one guy was selling a display base with eight sets of the tin included for $295.
