Our local TRU had a sale going on the AT-AT today...$10 off, so $89.99 total. Cheapest I have seen it yet.

I'm almost certain the reason Hasbro balked at the Twilight was because of the association with the super-popular vampire movies. Perhaps in a few years when the movies are all done and gone we'll get that vehicle.
Has there been numerous reports of this wave hitting yet? I'm always wary to spend any time hunting when just one or two third person reports are posted.
TODO 360 is back!!
Funny that most people on here have at least some Vintage already, but a few Target stores are holding out until the 6th.
Does anyone have a good explanation for the street dates on toys? I get doing this with media where you have big events around the launch and potential for leaking tracks/copying etc. But I would seriously like to hear a sound arguement on Hasbro's behalf of using street dates on their figures. Seems to just cause confusion and make people mad in my opinion.
The only rational idea I've been able to think of is if they somehow "sold" an earlier release date to Toys R Us. Maybe it was part of the package deal with the exclusives, but if they use it as a bargaining chip with a lone retailer, then I can see where it would make sense. If other retailers don't honor that date, then the benefit to TRU would go away. Outside of that, is there any real reason to do this other than trying to control that which you don't need to control?
