Picked up 2 Landstrider sets at TRU today during my lunch break. I almost overlooked them because the box was WAY smaller than I had pictured in my head.

Looks like a really well done toy, excited for the rest now!

A commercial for a commercial during the Olympics.

I was going to post about that earlier, I saw it last night luckily enough. The scene with the shuttle blowing up on the landing pad was cool as hell...looking forward to the real deal tonight.

Yeah, I saw a bunch of those sets for $13 at Walmart over lunch today.

A couple around me are just hitting the 50% markdown, which means $9.98 figures and $84.98 TIES. Still not low enough to tempt me on a second TIE, but getting closer. That's a great price for figures though.

LOL, the first thing I thought of was Zuvio...Jeff beat me to it.

One can hope, poor schmoe is going down in toy infamy otherwise.

I saw a few of these guys for $4.97 at GameStop today. Mosep, Dutch, Hoth Luke...not too shabby.

And if anyone here at JTA has an extra Jyn or Obi-Wan I am interested.  ;D

JTA?!   ???

Blecchhh, worst brainfart typo EVER. I was obviously so frustrated I couldn't even think straight! Blanket apologies to all... :-[

Had a Ben in my cart, processing checkout at 10:20AM CST... got an error message and of course it had sold out while trying to process the order. ::)

Same here. And I also had no "Add to Cart" button on my individual pages so I had no idea wtf to do. I had to run to a whole different computer.

It's a stupid thing to get angry about but I can't help it. Make more of these goddam things, Hasbro! You could have sold a hell of a lot more of these today.

And if anyone here at JD has an extra Jyn or Obi-Wan I am interested.  ;D

No sign of this in stock as of 8:40 CST this morning.  That said, I noticed one of the other products could be added to my cart, so I hope they haven't come and gone already.  Also noticed that the description says "Limit of 2 per household" instead of the usual 1 per person limit.  If anyone ends up with a spare, I'd love to get one of these.

No, they haven't gone available yet, I have been watching like a hawk all morning.

Which one were you able to get into your cart and how?  :D

Stopped by a Target that was in the middle of a toy reset. They have finally thrown in the towel and put the big TIE on clearance. Only $118.88 right now, but if they hold true to form this will eventually get to 75% off which would be about $42.50, which is the right price for me to start fleet building.  >:D

Other odd thing I noticed was this location had started clearancing their 6" SWB figures for $13.98. It's probably a good thing to help clear the pegs of all those Snow and Flame Troopers, but I thought for sure they would be carrying the same DPCI over for these. If they do, this will create some interesting issues I predict. (FF figures ringing up at the clearance price, or not at all even)

Also, a bunch of the stores in my area just started getting in more of the Ahsoka wave. Odd timing.

Jerry Doyle aka Michael Girabaldi, B5  :'(

Nooooo!!! I loved him on that show. Except near the end when he turned on them all.

Seemed young, sad.  :(

Thanks Jeff! That makes sense now.

Got mine yesterday...very nice set.

Can't help wondering why there are 3 ports on top of the domes and only two accessories. What the heck is that third one for? It's too big to fit either of the attachments.

I can't recall but maybe there was originally an extra one that came with R2?

I appreciate that insight as well. I am thankful for the opportunity to add more Clone Wars characters to my collection, even if they don't match the previous Astromech iterations.

I do wish there was some way we could get the rest of D-squad made though, having just one of them (ok, 2 if you count R2) makes me pine for the rest.  ;)

The Worst figures look amusing. They maybe not be ReAction, just Super 7.

I saw those too, and was slightly intrigued, but after nearly an hour for fruitless searching online for some kind of backstory on these, I finally gave up. I have no idea if that is just something they dreamed up or if it is actually based on something.
