Saturday I got an order from HTS.com that had a 10pk of cases in it. I had no problem putting one of these 501st figures into it. It sealed up nicely. It doesnt fit in like a regular carded figure does, but it puts no stress on the Wal-Mart 501st card.

These things are so "exclusive" they are clogging up the pegs at the WalMarts here. Razz

I picked up a couple of these last night and tried to fit them in Star Case 4's.... they don't fit right. The card that sticks out the side makes it too tight of a fit and prevents the case from sealing properly. It seems the Hasbro Cases are the best fit for this guy, and even they are too tight and a questionable fit.

Well, that sucks, especially since HTS doesn't sell individual cases. Buying a ten-pack for one figure seems stupid, but I may have to do that.

Further proof that I'm an idiot and have no idea what I'm doing....

I tried to fit this figure in a Star Case 4 again today and was actually happy with the results. Yes, it's tight and the case doesn't really seal all the way (unless forced and possibly damaging the card), but it does fit better than my first attempt a few days ago. Maybe it was because I placed the figure on the back then applied the front of the case this time?

So at this point I have no idea which case works best! Anyone else have an opinion on this?

Yeah, if anyone else has both cases, I'd like to figure out which one I should buy.

I'd just like to actually see this figure in the store. I have two Walmarts here and I have yet to see this figure.

I have four Wal-Marts in my near vicinity (Marietta, GA), and none of them have any of these figures yet. I even went to the WM in Douglasville (which is 45 minutes away) and they didn't have any either.

Once again the figures from the new waves are surpising me. One of the WalMart's near me sold all of the exclusive clones they had. I was sure they were going to sit around for a while but they didn't.

As yet, no one in Canada has reported seeing this guy... kinda makes us wonder if this is a US Wal-mart exclusive....

Has anyone checked with Hasbro to see what they say about this one?
