The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: CW Republic Swamp Speeder

I read at one of the firewall sites (Yakface, Sandtroopers, whatever) that some schmoe found this at a TRU in Alabama.

Wowzers! New product is reaching critical mass!

Scored both of these last night using the DCPI scam at the Target customer service desk.

They're nice sets, well done.

And I do think the IG-86 has updated paint apps. Mine had a definite copper tint that I do not recall from the original.

The TCW BPs are all in healthy supply in my area. But I'm surprised that the "Holocron Heist" set seems to be moving more slowly, considering it has 3 core characters and 1 villain.

Yeah, that BP was already released previously in the red/white packaging (not around here but everywhere else in the country apparently) so it is old news by this point.

I'm curious why I am seeing more Mando BP's but none with the ARC Troopers. Outside of the one I bought a few weeks back at TRU, I have never seen another. Anywhere.

I was able to score both Target TCW 2-pack exclusives last night using the old DCPI Jedi Mind Trick. I'm sure I could have scored the collector packs as well but figure I can wait these out until I get paid Friday.

Love those Senate dudes, even without faces.

Thanks! I will pick some up tonight and give it a try. Appreciate the help...

Yeah, it was everything it was cracked up to be...B-O-R-I-N-G.

I also found it weird that they felt the need to introduce a whole new species. There are already so many existing ones in the canon they could have chosen from. Instead they just go all Stargate and whip something out of their arses. Seemed contrived and pointless.

I found myself  musing whether they would ever make a figure out of those Mando royal guards, they get a lot more screen time than those ridiculous cops.

I wonder if it is a source of contention between Hasbro and Filoni how much they feature Satine on the show. I feel like it must really grind Hasbro's nuts because her omission from the animated line becomes increasingly glaring with each passing episode. (IMHO)

Drove all over town, hit at least ten Walmarts - not a single one had ANY of these.

Sounds like there's plenty of them where people don't need or want them.

Jabba Part Two?

How much?

Sorry, I tried to indicate that there was no price associated with either of these items, so no idea.

I went to about 8 other Targets after that and none of them had these.

Saw this complete wave at a Target for the first time today. Previously I had only seen it before at Walmart, so for anyone still needing these, it's a good sign.

I found the vintage packaged Snowspeeder and TIE Fighter this morning as well, right here in the good ole US of A.

Target just had one of each out...verrry cool. Really love that packaging design. Neither had any sort of price close to them, so I can only assume they will ring up for the same as the other midsize starfighters. Or maybe I'm just being optimistic there.  ::)

Yeah, I left them. Not easily.

Found these all this morning at Target. Easy pass...too many humans, and I just got Shaak Ti a few months ago in the last TLC wave.

Good to see new stuff hitting though!

I was out, and decided to see if I could figure out how easy/hard it would be to get these sets.  I checked around to see how many were in stock, and since I didn't like what I was hearing I decided to act and get what I wanted now since I was out and about anyway. 

How exactly did you do this? Did you just hoof it, or did you call up on the phones to check stock via the DCPI's? Or use that IPhone App?

I haven't been able to find any of the new exclusives on their website yet, so I can't seem to check store availability that way, ala Walmart.

Will these be out 10/17 too?

I would think so, but that might make too much sense. They all pretty much hit at once in Canada, and I can't see why Target would want to stock their TVC exclusives but not their TCW ones.

I just read on JTA that both the Hoth BP's AND the Geonosis sets have now been spotted at Target in Philly. So it seems logical to assume we would start seeing the 4 TCW exclusives (2 2-packs and 2 BP's) any day now.

I'm already starting the Hunt for these today.

Based on what I read in the Yakface forums last night, this has also now been spotted in Arizona and Iowa.

I wondered why no one has posted here about seeing this yet and then I remembered we are down to like 20-30 regular posters now.

I would really appreciate it if someone could mention this if they happen to see it in their travels. Will do likewise, of course.


Out now up in Canada, courtesy of something called "Zeller's".

These are both out in Canada, Zeller's again.

Great week to be a Canuck!
