Many of you are curious to learn more about the “clean variation” of the TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure that showed up on tunghori’s eBay store recently. We received our sample and added images of it to our gallery in the RDR including comparison shots. Simply put, this clean version of the Mimban Stormtrooper should give us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the upcoming TVC Rogue One Stormtrooper. It’s without any battle-damage markings at all and possesses a bone-white color which makes it unique to the other Imperial Stormtrooper action figures received to date, and we’re glad to have the figure in our collections now. The figure, to date, has not returned to this eBay seller’s store. Check out the update gallery HERE. You can still order this figure HERE at Walmart.com too.
JTA reader Terminal Voracity sends a cool store report for the Walmart Exclusive TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure. It’s now on Rollback at some retail locations. See images below for proof. By the way, you can still order the figure online HERE
JTA reader Jay found the Walmart exclusive The Black Series 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper at his Mount Pleasant, SC Walmart for $15. If you are looking to army build this figure (or just trying to find it for the first time), keep checking your Walmarts. Let us know in the comments if you find it at your local Walmart below retail. Thanks for the store report, Jay!
If you’re quick, the Walmart exclusive TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure is back in stock! Special thanks to JTA reader Justin V. for the alert!
The TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) has been showing up at retail across the U.S. in pretty high numbers lately, but if you haven’t been lucky enough to find it in the wild it’s back in stock at Walmart.com. Thanks to JTA reader Craig for the alert!
Update: Out of Stock!
We’ve had tons of reports over the past few days of the previously MIA Stormtrooper (Mimban) The Vintage Collection figure showing up in large quantities at Walmarts. Viewers have reported from Illinois, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Kansas, and New York, to name a few. If you have been waiting for this to drop on shelves, now is the time to start hunting. Thanks for all the viewers who wrote in, and chime in in the comments to post your own finds to help others out.
Imagine waiting for months for the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure to arrive in stores. And then it never does. Imagine it finally arriving on Walmart’s online store but missing it because it sold out each time you got the alert it was in stock? Imagine finally placing an order which feels miraculous in and of itself, but also ships and arrives at your house without the order getting canceled. Then imagine opening the box and finding this. How much longer are we going to deny that everything is “situation normal” with the Hasbro Star Wars brand? Special thanks to friend Josh M. for this report and image. He didn’t care about the condition of these figures because he wanted openers, but if you’re a carded collector, this would be enough to kill the joy of the hobby for them.
Goodness, gracious me! Bubblegate returns AGAIN! JTA Facebook reader Rob H. sends us a heartbreaking image of the Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure off of its card back while still in the bubble. I am not sure about you, but my figures arrived in terrible condition, and I have heard it’s been the consensus of many other collectors as well. Rob writes “Yes it was packed in a vinyl envelope but if this was torn off in shipping paper would have been removed from the card. It looks like it never had anything on it. I think this would come off with little effort.” Maybe your sample didn’t arrive after suffering abuse as his did, but this is a warning not to test fate and treat your own carded sample with extra tender loving care. How this figure wasn’t a general marketplace release is beyond my comprehension.
Hey! The TVC Mimban Stormtrooper is BACK IN STOCK! BY the way, it looks like the MSRP is set to $19.99 for this item. I don’t think it’s changing! It’s another reason why Walmart should never be allowed to sell Star Wars figures again!
Hey! All you naysayers out there thinking you were either going to get a roll of yarn or a 6″ Mimban Stormtrooper can finally rest easy! JTA reader Scott M. provides PROOF that Walmart is indeed shipping out The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure to homes as we speak! If you’ve been too anxious to order it, hop on it now! It’s incredible this figure actually made it to Walmart! (Also, we should say it IS The Vintage Collection Mimban Stormtrooper because the figure is still available online, albeit at a terribly high price.)
JTA reader Eric wrote in to let everyone know that his Burbank, California Walmart did a massive restock of the Stormtrooper (Mimban) 6-Inch figure. He counted at least 60 in-stock. Be on the look-out if you are still in the hunt for this figure at retail. Thanks for the update, Eric!
In what will go down as one of retail’s worst-handled exclusives of all time, more and more Walmarts are getting dumped with loads of the 6″ Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure. I have yet to see this figure in the wild, but we’re getting more reports that this is hitting once again just this week. Special thanks to JTA reader Ben H. for the image and story.
In Australia that is! Complete with Walmart stickers! Australia doesn’t even have Walmarts (yet)! How sad is it that the exclusive The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure for American Walmarts (that should have arrived months ago) is hitting in considerable numbers in Australia first? I mean, we’re happy for our fellow collectors in the land of “down under” but this is ridiculous. Special thanks to JTA reader General Solo for the image and report.
Wo! Here you go, folks! Pre-order the Star Wars [Solo] Imperial AT-DT Walker at Amazon right now. It’s currently out of stock, but you can still pre-order it. If you need to know more about this fun toy, see our review of it RIGHT HERE! Special thanks to JTA reader Alientek for the alert!

We provided one of the first store reports for this figure, but there are also a ton of new store reports for the Walmart exclusive Stormtrooper (Mimban) 6″ figure too. From Lehighton PA to Atlanta GA, they are hitting across the land. Post your reports in our comments! Thanks to JTA reader Chris G. for the image and report from PA.

Hey! Check it out. It looks like The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure really is coming to Walmart in a more widespread fashion. I believe there have only been one or two store reports to date, correct? Well, JTA reader Anonymous has found a full case at his local Walmart in Virginia. The receipt for proof is in the image below.
Check out our 112-image gallery of the STUNNING TARGET exclusive Stormtrooper (Squad Leader)/Mudtrooper/Imperial Patrol Trooper/Han Solo (Mimban)/Stormtrooper (Mimban)/TIE Fighter Pilot 6-pack which Hasbro based on Solo: A Star Wars Story. A set like this should serve as a template to how 5POA should be approached. The only thing disappointing is that all of these beautiful figures aren’t super-articulated, although some of you may not care about this detail. Hasbro loaded the set with newness and smart repacks. The set officially goes on sale today, so make sure you check out our thoughts before buying yours. It’s all in our Research Droids Reviews today! Be sure to leave your thoughts in our comments section, vote in the poll or even comment about it on our Facebook page.

We are happy to share an international store report from Switzerland. JTA reader Phil B. can confirm that some of Hasbro’s greatest exclusives are hitting his homeland, but not through standard retailers. These include The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Gamorrean Guard and The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figures! Awesome find!
eBay seller tunghori has listed Han Solo and also lowered the price of the TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure. Special thanks to all who wrote in to let us know! If you’re interested, we have reviewed all of these figures in our The Vintage Collection RDR database!
eBay seller tunghori has relisted some of the most highly sought-after TVC basic figures including Stormtrooper (Mimban), Rey (Island Journey) and Doctor Aphra! Hurry before they’re gone! Special thanks to JTA reader Mark and Gregory G. for the heads up!
And they ship for only $10 too! This has to be either (A) a scam or (B) bootleg figures, correct? Either way, for this price, it feels like a deal in some way, doesn’t it? This is an FYI, not a suggestion to purchase them. Check out the auction on eBay.
