The Walmart Exclusive Kessel Mine Escape Playset Is Torturous

Sigh. After an inexplicable delay, the Walmart exclusive Kessel Mine Escape playset is now available to those that want it at To date, it hasn’t arrived at any brick and mortar stores yet. It’s much more compact than the Vandor-1 Heist playset. (Vandor-1 Heist is much more enjoyable as a playset item, FYI.) Hasbro approached the Kessel Mine Escape playset all wrong. Torturing us with “painted on” droids and no-name Wookiees, it looks like the only option we have to get these fantastic characters is two-dimensionally as painted-on characters. And we get another unwanted Han Solo figure as our pack-in here. Of particular note, droid DD-BD is shown on the products’ packaging but is nowhere to be found on the actual playset. Is that a future figure coming down the pike, or did the artwork on this set change before release? Anyhow, we hope that Hasbro gets all of the characters featured on this playset released some day. They’re all beautiful characters that deserve to populate the Star Wars [Solo] line. Our review is coming soon, but you can check out a very rough gallery right now by visiting our Research Droids Review on it now. You can order this set at right now if you wish too.
