Here we go! Our Research Droids Review on Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) (VC144) is completely finished and ready for you to check out. Despite the circus surrounding Walmart’s stock availability and alerts, shipping statuses, multiple authorizations, and changing arrival dates, I am so happy the figure is finally released for all of us to enjoy. One of my most favorite characters in the Original Trilogy, I am thrilled that Hasbro perfected this iteration of him for The Vintage Collection’s return. Aside from the missing skiff guard blaster, I am unable to find a single complaint with the figure itself. But the figure’s packaging is a whole other bowl of wax for criticism. This review’s official launch is tomorrow, but you can get an early look at right now! Don’t forget to leave your thoughts about this long-awaited updated figure in our comments! There are a ton of comparison shots with Jabba’s palace aliens, earlier versions of this character, and diorama scenes.

Well, Walmart.com has lost its mind. After canceling some people’s orders, and holding other’s orders in limbo, the exclusive TVC Lando Calrissian is now listed as back in-stock. You can go order it now, and hope you get one! Personally, my order is listed as ‘shipped’, but I will believe it when it arrives since it doesn’t actually have a tracking number. Thanks to JTA viewer Mark for the in-stock alert!

The Walmart Exclusive The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) process seemed like things had changed for the giant retailer, but now things are turning for the worse, and orders can’t be fulfilled (despite order statuses claiming it will arrive today). It was too good to be true we suppose.

The Walmart Exclusive The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) is now available to order!
If you pre-ordered the Walmart exclusive TVC Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure, your credit card is probably going through quite a workout, probably while you’re reading this post. JTA reader and friend Josh M. alerts us to the horror that your orders from Walmart online are getting authorized every single day for the figures on your orders. I checked my credit card, and the same thing happened to me. Walmart customer service doesn’t understand what’s happening fully as my customer service experience was different and they actually tried to defend the multiple holds. When will this stop? When your card has no more credit for the authorizations?? Read Josh’s online chat below as he had better success than I did.
UPDATE: I got ahold of the Walmart Resolution Team (800-966-6546) and they were able to work with their Billing Department and get the extra authorizations removed from my credit card.
