Super cool, and kudos to them for keeping something under wraps til now.

Now then, new thread for the Droid Tri-fighter?  ;D

Will it keep creeping up?  I don't know.  Maybe it's at what it's at for good?  This is 100% WM though...  They set the prices.  Hasbro set the minimum and WM is apparantly raising it.  *shrugs*  I don't see where anyone could possibly question this, unless Hasbro came out and said, "oh by the way, we made WM pay more for it".

I honestly don't care either way as this is an item I have zero interest in purchasing, the thing that gets me is that I have seen displays for $38.88 and $34.97 at 2 different Walmarts less than 20 miles apart. I mean, they can't even be consistent with the pricing in the same zip code?

These have finally shown up - at $17.99 each. :o That's just plain absurd, especially for 2 repacks of considerably easy-to-get figures.

Let me guess - Arizona?


You can't cross the border without a frigging green card, but all the new toys seem to make it through just fine.

How 'bout some East Coast love, fellas?

Ordered, 1 set w/promocode COMIC2010 - total $21.49. Much cheaper than I would have paid on eBay.

had great luck with my last order from HTS...could be here as soon as Saturday. Monday for sure. Aw yeah!

Duh...of course! Thanks Jeff, I already bought this thing so it's completely off my radar.

So I hit up a Walmart earlier today looking for TCW Wave 2. (Utter failure - none are on the pegs here yet) One of the ones I hit was in the process of resetting. They had all new planograms up dated 8/9 showing the new SW section layout. No new figs, but there was a case of the new vehicles and the newest BP's out.

Weirdest thing though - they had a shelf tag for a SW vehicle listed for $59.97. I checked and the tag was dated 8/10, and the planogram confirmed there was some sort of designated space for a new vehicle, right next to the AT-AT.

I cannot fathom what they would stick there though - there is nothing on the horizon that I can think of at that price, unless they are planning to reship some ARC's or Y-Wings, but I've heard nothing about that.

Needless to say, I'll be checking back there this weekend out of sheer curiosity.

Hit another Walmart in the beginnings of a reset today, and they had a shelf tag (no product) for this item showing a $34.97 price point. WTF? You have to pay and extra $4 if you live across town?  ::)

Is it too early to be disappointed already?  ;D

I'll be curious to see more photos from today, but the initial galleries on Sandtroopers last night were totally underwhelming. All I saw was crap that has been leaked for months...the Carnie/Fixer comic pack, Vintage Wave 2, Slave 1, etc.

I know there will likely be more out than what has been pictured to this point, so I am cautiously optimistic, but bracing for a letdown.

Where's the HMP? Cato Parasitti? Undead Geonosian?

I guess the best hope is that the slideshow gets updated from SDCC and they actually show off some stuff from next year.

I noticed this morning the link I found is no longer active so pulled it. Maybe Hasbro does read these threads...

That is a low-down, rotten, dirty trick. Guess I won't be getting my email alerting me when this item comes in stock now.  ::)

I'm sorry, but anything they have for sale in a frigging store should be on the damn website too.

Is Hasbro going to hunt down all the people who already bought this and walked out with it? L-A-M-E

I already saw the photos of this in the display case at CV (courtesy Sandtroopers). This is the worst kept secret EVER.

Hit three different Walmarts today and finally saw the Jabba at the last location. $38.88 here looks like. They had a good number on the shelves. Oola is one butt-ugly sculpt IMO.

Great to see the local stores starting to catch up though...

This is up now on, albeit under the wrong description:

Yep, not a Transformer, guys. Price point and item # are hopefully accurate though.

Awesome, totally remember that now, very cool.

Good points re: The Sith too. I just think it's getting crowded.

That's the item on the web page. The box size and weight are correct. This sucker seems to be as heavy as the AT-AT.

Awesome, so for whoever's wondering, the Item # is 506739, and the UPC is 653569566557.

I'll be annoying our local TRU's about this for weeks, I can see it now.


(Why do they insist on calling it a vintage action figure vehicle though? It's 100% Clone Wars, baby.)

Are there any better pictures of this thing? I have no recollection of it from the Tartakovsky series.

I'm game for any new ships, but I really wish they would re-release the Solar Sailor and Geonosian fighter for the TCW line.

Ventress is a complete anachronism at this point. With Dooku, Palps, and Anakin in the on-deck circle, there is no room for any more Sith. Rule of 2 and all that. Hope they give her a fitting exit this season.

Found the new Slave I / Jedi Starfighter battle pack at TRU tonight for $99. It comes with five figures.


You magnificent bastard, I salute you!  ;D

Well done, that is completely awesome. Was this just some insane fluke, or did they actually have shelf space and a tag set up for it?

My buddy at TRU indicated there is a coming reset where the TCW stuff is due to be moved up to the front of the store, similar to last year at this time. Maybe they will actually be able to coordinate that with their hot new exclusive? (Yeah, I doubt it too)
