Am I the only one pissed that this isn't for sale?

Well, I feel somewhat placated at least...this was a lot more of what I was expecting out of SDCC. Got sneak peeks at Cato, Undead Geonosian, and the HMP, plus a few new surprises like the Jedi Turbo Speeder and that Droid Tri-Ship. (Why is no one talking about thing? It is monstrously I to assume this was already released years ago with some kind of different paint job? It looks all new to my eyes)

I wonder how long it will actually take the Slave 1 to hit here on the East Coast, we seem to be several weeks behind the rest of the country.

F'ing amazing, maybe even topping the Embo wave. Cato is MARVELOUS.

Great, great stuff...the Zombie Geonosian even comes with detachable limbs!

I also think it's funny that they went out of their way to NOT show Quinlan Vos. Yes, Virginia, there IS a CW37 figure...

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.
