Depending on how the chases pan out, there may be several of us with extra boxes of 12 from the mega order for Series 9.  Series 10 ordering hasn't started yet.

I'd be looking to grab a box from a master case where the chase has not been checked for/found.  Or in other words, splitting the case with someone prior to them opening any of the boxes.

I saw the movie figures, i was looking for the Fin Fang Foom wave. People over at Fwoosh have found them so i figured i would take a shot.

Haven't seen them around Minnesota at all, but they might be in back waiting for a reset.  The Target action figure aisle is looking pretty sad these days.

I am sure a little research would answer this for me, but I'm just too damn lazy. How much does it cost to order a box of 12? I'm really considering Series 9 and 10... :-\

I might go for a box as well.  This wave is looking better all the time...

My wife just called to say the Order 66 sets were delivered today, thanks again!

Congrats on winning Keonobi and my condolences on apparently getting kicked out of your house.   :o

The poor little boy that muttered "Master Skywalker what are we going to do?" has got to be one of them they will make. 

Will be interesting to hear more about this.  As a father, I think one of the most disturbing parts of all six movies is that scene with the kid coming to Anakin for help and him igniting his lightsaber and closing the door.  They obviously had to kill off the younglings somehow, but they really didn't have to show it in my opinion.  Making a figure of a young child character who's only role is to show that Anakin killed off a bunch of little kids just doesn't sit right with me.

That being said, I certainly hope that its something like the Solo kids, though I'd much rather have versions of them in their teens.

Not sure what prices you listed, but if JJ thought they were ridiculous enough to close you down then you're a moron scalper anyway.  Good riddance.

Obviously Minnesota is the only place these have yet to show up at.

I don't think we'll have "real time" tracking like this in our lifetime or least not for a long time.  I doubt companies will make their shipping logs for distribution centers and stores public.  At best you might get a read on what's in stock as of 8am if a retailer chose to offer this, but who knows if a customer or employee bought it at 8:01?  Product can still sell between the time that you saw it online and the time you get to the store.

I think Target would be the most likely to offer something like this given their current aisle checking machines, but Target codes their toys under a DPCI, rolling several UPCs into one code.  At best, you would know that more TAC figures came in, but not which specific ones, unless they decided to totally revamp all of their item coding for some reason, and I just don't see a good rationale for that in the near future.

I think its far more likely that stores start selling more of their merchandise online.  Target has avoided smaller ticket items thus far, but I think they'll increase the menu over time.  Think about the advantages of ordering from one or more distribution centers versus the much smaller inventory available at a single store.  They could also adopt Wal-Mart's ship to store program, where you wouldn't even have to pay shipping. 

If anyone finds an extra battle rancor all cheap and can sell me just the rider for like $15 I'd love you forever.

And you'd have a nice inexpensive rancor to boot.

I might have picked one up for you, but you're showing too much affection for this stage of our relationship.

If anyone finds one and could pick it up and just sell me the rider, that'd rock.  $15 for the rider?  It'd leave you with a nice cheap rancor.


I don't really need a spare drooler, but if anyone wants just the rancor, we have enough of them around here that I could pick one up and split between yourself and Rob.

I think Hasbro might be going a little too far with the large items being sold on day 1 lol. As cool as this ship may end up I already have the other clone wars one and ultimatly have no more room for another.

Looks pretty cool and like JT, I'm not getting one.  Waaaayyy too much coming out at the same time and really don't need yet another version of the exact same thing.  This might work on the $20 stuff like starfighters, but I just don't see a lot of demand for this.

Marvelous News has carded and loose pics up of the first wave of 2 packs (Wolvie/Forge, Ult. Fury/Ult. Cap, Elektra/Ronin).

That wolvie head does look a little silly.  I'm just going to get Ronin for my 'vengers collection...not sure if I want Elektra at this point or not.  I'll have to see it in person I guess.

Wasn't sure where to post, but the Rancors, o66 sets, and TAC/Legends are starting to get clearanced out at our Targets here in MN.

Just to add prices to this - we're seeing Rancors as low as $19.98 and Order 66 as low as $4.98 right now.  I personally haven't seen the TAC or Legends on clearance yet - not that there are any figures left to get.
