Walmart Exclusive 6" Mimban Stormtrooper Hitting Again!

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.

TBS6 [P3] Stormtrooper Mimban Found In Virginia Walmart!

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.

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.

TBS6 [P3] Stormtrooper (Mimban) - Baby Steps, Walmart

The Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure is listed on Walmart.com with an update that says available in stores only. We expect this to change shortly.

Well, take this as anecdotal evidence, or with a grain of salt as you wish, but Rey (Island Journey) is NEVER reaching Walmart stores until one major thing transpires…. like getting her UPC into their computers. This leaves even less hope for the TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure too. A JTA reader who asked to remain anonymous performed an investigation and found out some disturbing news. I can reveal this. I showed him the post from Steve at Hasbro saying the Rey figures shipped months ago. I then showed him screenshots I took of the figure on eBay. Most importantly, a picture of the UPC. He looked it up and said it was not even in their system. I asked him to elaborate, and he basically said without a number they recognize, it will never be moved to the stores. Is anyone else over this complete cluster of a mess? This is retailing basics, and Hasbro’s most significant retail partner is squandering the line right before our eyes. It’s maddening at this point. Hasbro, please read this. Is there anything you can do to help?

TVC Stormtrooper (Mimban) eBay Orders Arriving

JTA reader Nathaniel wrote in to let us know he received his, and in perfect condition. If you want to pay a little more to secure this instead of relying on Walmart to actually make their stock available, there are plenty of auctions to choose from now… at a premium.

TBS6 [P3] Stormtrooper (Mimban) Hits Canadian TRU Stores

Facebook page Star Wars Black Series 6″ figures is reporting that the USA Walmart exclusive Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure is arriving at Toys R Us in Canada. Maybe it will reach USA Walmarts before Christmas. And by Christmas, I mean Christmas 2019. Once again, I have been collecting modern Star Wars for 23 years, and I have never seen distribution worse than it is right now. Poor distribution is never proven by anecdotal evidence like this of course, but as we all know this is just the tip of the iceberg. I hope there is a positive turnaround coming. If you’re interested, we reviewed this awesome figure in May and you can check it out RIGHT HERE.

We have an exciting first look sneak peek at The Vintage Collection’s Stormtrooper (Mimban) (VC123) figure. We have one word for Hasbro: BRAVA! It’s beautiful. The Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure comes with an incredible 30 points of articulation. Hasbro tooled the armor in a way that optimizes the figure’s movement. Articulation enthusiasts are going to be thrilled once they realize the poses they’ll be able to achieve thanks to how Hasbro worked in this figure’s articulation. The paint operations are excellent, and he is relatively dirty but nowhere near as dirty as the troopers in the film. Once Hasbro announced this figure, collectors began clamoring for an all-new Stormtrooper sculpt utilizing most of this figure’s parts. Well, if Hasbro does use most of this figure, we have our definitive figure. The packaging is alright. The subtitle of “Mimban” in parentheses should be BENEATH the word “Stormtrooper” and not to the right of it. Come on, Hasbro. Your graphics department should have this locked down by now. The review is coming soon, but you can check most everything else right now. Enjoy!

The point of this article is two-fold. Firstly, after multiple conversations with collecting friends (thank you Josh and Chris), we all think that a new super-articulated Stormtrooper could be in the works. Hasbro would need to tweak a couple of things on the Walmart exclusive Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure, but they could easily give us our definitive Imperial Stormtrooper finally. (WITH NO REMOVABLE HELMET!) Secondly, how do you feel about Hasbro’s new approach to articulation in the super-articulated 3.75″ scale? I personally am thrilled to see the inclusion of ball-jointed wrists and swivel thighs now. But what I sorely miss are “rocker” ankles. Would you prefer that Hasbro eliminate something in order to bring the “rocker” ankles back? Or are you fine with the way things are? Let us (and Hasbro) know in the comments!

Cool! Check it out. We have a first look image of the previously rveealed by Hasbro Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Stormtrooper (Mimban) figure card back art to share with you. It is for a promotion in Japan that features the Mimban Stormtrooper. Apprarently per Google Translate the promo is about a prize draw for people who send in barcodes of various Star Wars toys. Special thanks to JTA reader Bence B. for letting us know!
