Walmart stores are often a frustrating and exciting source of exclusives and bundles in November. This year, the "we were told this was canceled" Rogue One Star Wars Titan Hero Series vehicle assortment arrived at Walmart in aisle dumps along with Poe/Speederbike, Stormtrooper/Assault Walker, and some Marvel Mask/Figure 2-packs. At $10 a whack they're spectacular values for kids and something collectors in 20 years - when Titan Hero Series becomes the Mego of this generation of children - cost more than a trip to the movies for your family. But hey, you can go get these now if you're lucky.
The lines aren't necessarily terrible in all locations, and if you're one of the many toy vampires out there the after hours shopping trip will do you more good than refreshing your social media feeds and postponing sleep another hour or three.

This is the first Snowtrooper Officer to be made in Vietnam - and at first glance, it's just a deco variant. But it's not.

The height is a little different, and you'll notice some pretty significant changes on the bottom of the backpack. Check it out - read on!
It's the Death Trooper! Which is kind of a silly name for a government to employ for its military, but then again we also have a Death Star and such. It's a decent figure with a ridiculous backpack - and it comes in a two-pack with a cool alien. I assume you've bought yours by now. If not, read on!
