Found a lone Baroness retro figure at one of my local Walmarts yesterday. It was marked down to $16 because the card and bubble were dinged.
I've seen Baroness and Lady Jaye marked down to that price as well, though I'm not sure if they were returns from online? I picked up the Jaye for $12 for the improved face paint.
I spotted a smashed up Gung Ho that was also discounted to about 17 and change.

Finally saw retro on the pegs. Poor LJ. Will she always be doomed to peg warmer status?
Also, I didn't realize these figures are still at the $20 price. That was a nice surprise.

Nothing original, but I was alerted that a local Walmart in Columbus had a case of Baroness out so I rushed out to grab one and immediately got to work when I got home on fixing her up like some of you guys have.

Shriek arms, Widow hands, knife holster and belt from the original release with a different knife donated from Scarlett. Didn’t keep the shoulder decorations. Made her a bit busy.

Might have to dig around the fodder and see if there’s some better hair too.

Obviously I like the mobility of double jointed elbows, but not at the cost of sculpt that matches the rest of the figure. I doubt I'd do a swap like that because the smooth arms would not blend with the textured torso.

I pointed to the empty retro pegs and asked Anna the Wal-Mart lady if she had any figures. With exasperation, she said, "I set those up 20 minutes ago. Give me a break!" She went on to say they are probably in external storage if they have them. I wouldn't mind getting a decent Baroness card if possible, all the stores in the area have her and Jaye available for pickup.

Btw, I'm never going to see the end of the Snake-Eyes wave at my store. Back in January they were moved to the top shelf, then the most recent reset moved them to the bottom shelf. Now they are hanging on the pegs.

Is there really a difference between the standard Crimson Guard release and the retro card release?

There are different paint decos for this Crimson Guard than standard release. The general skuttlebutt is Walmart’s having more silver on the helmet and uniform will make this fellow an officer in this faction of troopers. I think it has the red back back too while general release is black. You’ll see the difference when looking at the helmets.

One is enough for me to command my squad of Guardsmen.

I assume the reds are the same. I could be wrong. I think they addressed it when they traded in a previous livestream.

Thwipp!

Before I was even aware that they dropped.

Kind of surprised the quantities are so low for a next summer release.

Managed to get Snake Eyes on Pulse, but Guard sold out before I could finish processing my order. It's fine, if it's like the other figures so far it shouldn't be too difficult to come by.

It's a walmart exclusive, HP always sells a tiny amount.
