Thanks Jack, I was just able to find this on the TRU website as well, apparently a new listing, no photo yet:

Item # 492296
SKU: 1284FA63
UPC: 653569513674

It's listed as "Star Wars Ultimate Battle Pack Vehicles"...$109.99, yikes!

I found this in the Chicago burbs thanks to a tip from a friend, so it's starting to trickle out from the West Coast. They only had one on the very top shelf.

Here is the kicker: luckily the last one that they had had a price tag on it for $99.99. TRU rarely has price tags on their merchandise, so when I went to pay it rang up for $109.99! I showed them the price tag and they adjusted it to $99.99. So do not be surprised if you find this at that price, hopefully yours will have the tag mine did. The box is slightly smaller than the AT-AT but it feels light. I literally just got home and will open later, I will shoot some pics. This time I have the right number so you guys can find this too.

Congrats dude, that's awesome. Can you also post the Item # and/or UPC when you get a chance? Thanks!

I have a jpeg of the order form but can't figure out how to post it here. Will try later when I have more time.

I sent away for this yesterday...had to buy an extra Camo ARF Trooper just to get the fifth UPC. Kind of a waste, but oh well.

Don't really care for piss poor animation and crude subject manner I guess.  I've just been sticking to the Fox stuff.

Not trying to tease you, but that just reads like such a hilarious contradiction. Fox has built an empire on poor animation and crude subject matter, IMO. King of the Hill makes my eyes bleed it is so poorly drawn. And nothing stoops as low as Family Guy, God bless 'em.  ;D

Adult Swim started when I was in college and will always be special. There have been some great shows on there, and more than a few pilots that should have become shows. (AHEM - Korgoth, BEST THING EVER)

I can get with about 85% of the programming now. No interest in the schlocky anime they run, or the endless reruns of Family Guy or American dad, but most everything else is gold.

Best things right now:

ATHF (Probably done though)
SQUIDBILLIES (Freaking unstoppably hilarious)
VENTURE BROS (I really think they need to cut it back to 12 minutes like everything else though)
SUPERJAIL (Words cannot even describe the brilliance, perverse and mondo-violent)
METALOCALYPSE (Seriously - animation + death metal? It's like they ripped the show right out of my brain!)

And last but certainly the opposite of least: CHECK IT OUT with Dr. Steve Brule!!!!!!!

You either love this show or hate it - there is no in-between. I think it's the most screamingly funny epic thing on TV ever, but then I actually watch low budget cable access shows, so there you go.

I'm an AS guy for life, boyee.

Well, I finally broke down and ordered this thing today off Toy Palace. It's been at the top of my list for nearly a year, and after months of diligent searching I feel confident I will never see this on eBay. That alone is practically unbelievable.

I got a small discount as a new customer, but it's still brutal financially. The shipping alone is half as much as the item itself. Still, as a diehard completist this was a mandatory pick-up.

Will bump the thread when it arrives, but it will likely be awhile.

Nice find. Once I saw the posting over at Yakface I went to Could this be the listing on

I can now confirm that the above listing is actually for the AT-AT, not the Rise of Boba Fett UBP.  :'(

I don't see any kind of listing for the UBP yet. Damn!

They still have the wrong item description up for the Nikto Pirate too.

GH is reporting that the TRU Exclusive AT-AT in vintage packaging has been found in the Center of the Toy Universe, AKA Arizona. Looks like the price will be $109.99.

Was going to cave and buy this when it finally arrives on the East Coast in a few months, but I think I will have to pass because space is fast becoming an issue with my collection. Bummer.  :(

Good points, I was thinking about it last night and there will always be that goofy name precedent from the movies, although it seemed to get worse in the Prequels, so I get that. I just think they've kind of taken it to a rather ridiculous extreme. I like cool, alien sounding names like K'Kruhk though...wish they went more that route.

And yeah, I do love the Zabraks too, and this could be a potentially cool character, and certainly a worthy figure. Just wish he had a better name.

If they are introducing new characters with an ultimate endgame in mind for them, that's great. I just hate to see continual cluttering of the cast with no occasional deletions. It gets unwieldy after awhile. Less screen time for the "regulars" and all that.

Well, if this is going to be TRU's Deluxe exclusive this Fall, the other one should follow form and be a TCW offering, like last year. Something for everyone.

Kudos for the exclusive first look at Vos. You guys rule!

I agree with Jeff, he must be in Season 3 because it seems ridiculous to have held him out of CV otherwise. Then again, it would have been smarter to just go ahead and show it rather than letting the photos leak the next week too.  ::)

I'm calling this schmoe "Tarzan-Jedi"...or maybe "Master Perry Farrel".

Stupid, but I'll buy him.

Great pics...does anyone know if the R2 is a straight repack or not? I have heard varying theories on the Interwebz. He has been re-issued so many times I can't even tell anymore.

Beautiful...still wondering which Mando will come carded though. Is it the version from the Deluxe set, the version from the upcoming BP, or something different?

Fair enough, it does not look like the one I bought last year, but maybe so. At least it's different from an aesthetic standpoint.

My set arrived via Fed Ex today, an excellent addition to my collection. I love that they used an older Zuckuss sculpt rather than the one that was just issued recently. Much closer to the vintage original.
