Picked up a great bargain on a vintage battle damaged X-Wing...snagged a very minty version with great color and stickers for only $15. It's missing the canopy and 2 of the wing guns but those are easily procurable on the cheap. I really liked the overall condition of this item and the price seemed to good to pass up. It helped a lot that the seller failed to include the words "x-wing" or "battle-damaged" anywhere in the auction title.  ;)

I saw the new Deluxe sets at Walmart for the first time tonight and picked up the AT-RT and Desert Skiff for $15.97 so I could return the two I got jacked up for at TRU to the tune of $19.99 each.  ::)

I would have bought the BARC Speeder too and done the same thing but I didn't have the spare cash on me. Still, that's found money I can easily get back into my pocket. Screw TRU.

Rats, I am hunting high and low for this thing to no avail! Our TRU's have not gotten a whiff of them.

I can live with the $20, although it does seem pretty weak.

Anyone know if this has a unique product code/UPC I can check for over the phone?

Can anyone who got a close look at this please answer a burning question for me?

Is the Clone Trooper that comes with this going to be a unique sculpt/paintjob/etc? Or is it going to be a pure re-pack of a previously released figure?

I'm not a fan of the R/C stuff, but as a TCW completist I will have to buy this if the clone is something new or even remotely a variant at all.

Meh, this barely even merits a new post, but I picked up the Vintage A-Wing Pilot POTF coin for $3 on eBay. I figure this will help expand my options for picking up the actual figure since I don't have to worry about picking up one with the coin included. (Of course, that same logic got me stuck with 2 Ewok coins, but whatever)

Really hard to pick up any good deals right now because all the vintage prices have spiked since X-Mas seemingly. Hope that is just temporary.

I gotta say, I'm shocked so few are talking about this item...

I think that's because so many pre-production images had already been leaked well in advance of ToyFair. It just didn't have the buzz going that the AT-AT did.

Also, a lot of people (such as myself) have no recollection of this from the films and are still waiting for it to show up in the animated series. (other than as a minor background detail). There's just no "wow factor" in terms of anticipation.

I know I'm in a minority of 1 on this, but I think there could have been a lot more hype generated from unveiling a new "BIG" TCW vehicle. You know, like the Twilight.  ;D

Well, looking back I feel disappointed we didn't see anything larger than the standard vehicles for the TCW line. No gunship, no Y-Wing, no Turbo Tank or At-Te equivalent. I hope they plan to roll something more compelling out for SDCC.

Well apparently this is out now, Galactic Hunter has confirmed. I had heard of the TLC offering being found so I figured this must be out too.

Both our local TRU's restock tomorrow morning so guess who will be there when doors open at 10am. :)

Aurra does look sweet...I am psyched about this one!

Wonder why they decided to drop Cad Bane in Disguise from this wave?

I don't see him slotted in the Fall Wave 1 either, guess this was a total scratch in favor of his deluxe vehicle/figure pack?

I am SO getting this!

Though I have to wonder, how is this any less of a choking/blinding hazard now than it was 30 years ago?

I forgot to mention that I picked up the TRU exclusive bikerscout/speederbike set yesterday. Also picked up the Han/Spacetrooper BOGO pack.

Did you happen to notice if they had the TCW Exclusive pack with the Battle Droid and STAP too? Was thinking these would be released in tandem...

Awesome! Thanks for the pics...I'm not sure this is as compelling as the first 2 waves this year, but I'm on board for sure. Is that Toyfare on stands now?

Yes, all figures are now $6.99 at the brick and mortars, I confirmed with one of my TRU contacts earlier this week.

Both the local stores have tons of the BOGO packs, same assortments as Target and Walmart though, mostly TPM wave.

Yeah, I think you came out pretty well. Depending on the quality of the playsets, those would have been worth $25-$50 each on eBay, not sure about the total value of the misc swag but it works out pretty equitably IMO.
