I guess I'm not surprised to see fewer places picking these up now.  The first wave of figures ended up on mass clearance at Kmart, didn't move too well at TRU, and I never saw evidence of a Wal-Mart or Target carrying them in my area. 

These aren't bad toys though, I rather like them and so does my son.

I got some of these sets last week at Target.  The seeker droid is kind of cool, and the Vader was better than I thought.  I bought a coulpe of the Fett set too, which was mostly because my son convinced me to.

The clones looked pathetic though... easy pass.  My 6 year old son even said they looked "silly."

Just another example of Hasbro being all over the place.

We get a mix here of kid oriented and adult oriented toys.  Why not go one direction or the other?  If they are aiming at kids, why not pack in a more kid aimed Sidious and the new 5POA clone? 

And why in the hell would Vader be clutching a lightsaber when being operated on that table?

Hasbro makes no sense to me anymore.

I'm more concerned about the helmet...

All Hobbit stuff marked down to a super cheap $1.99 at my local Kmart... I bought the three Orcs on the dog beast things they had left.  Now my son and I have a great army... thought I did use a couple of the Orcs for customs.

There is speculation that the AT-RT with Clone is from the cancelled AMP'D line.

With this one cancelled item still in the database, it makes me question the validity (or at least the certainty) of all of these figures being released.

I hope that AMP'D remains cancelled.  But new 3.75 figures, I hope, are released.

I think we kind of got a realistic version (or close to it) with the Cad Bane that comes with TODO-360.  For me at least, it fits in fine with realistic figures.

As for others, I just think there's a lot of opportunities for more aliens to be brought into the mix.  I'm about cloned out though and totally burnt out on main characters like Anakin, Obi Wan, Mace, etc. 

Bring us NEW stuff that's eye popping, Hasbro.  Stuff like Xiro the Hutt would be all kinds of awesome.

I saw the new sets at TRU this weekend as well, but held off for the moment.  They always seem to be a bit higher there, so it would probably be better to wait it out.  I was tempted to get Elrond's council though, or even the wizard battle one.

My TRU also had those out - but both stores now pulled them off the shelves. 

Street date or something?

Did get my son the little Gandalf vs. Sauramon set though before they pulled them, and we put it together.  He really wanted it for Sauron's "eye."

I finally broke down and picked up the Mines of Moria set this week.  My daughter and I built the first "half" today, and it has been fun. 

Gave that set to my son on his birthday - May 23.  It's amazing!

Has ANYONE else seen these at a Ross?

I've been hitting them up every day and not seeing anything around here.  :(

The Ross stores in my area suck in terms of toys.

I have never seen a single Star Wars, Transformers, LEGO, Hobbit or GI JOE item at a Ross store.

I ran into an adult collector recently who was looking for these in Target.

Are you sure it wasn't Jayson?   :)

These look like fast food toys.  I think they all suck.

I might be selling my stuff too... but what the hell, I'm looking forward to seeing whatever you put up for sale.

There's a few things here and there that I might be interested in for customizing... do you have an Acklay you may part with? 

59
They're worth it, in my opinion.

I have 4 chairs - might order some more.

Thanks for the encouraging words guys.

I'm working on the dioramas/sets when I get time these days for the next chapter.  I've also finished some new customs for it too that I need to snap some pics of.
