Yeah, at the rate we're going, I wonder if they'll have anything noteworthy left to "reveal" by then...LOL.

Just picked up a C3PO and the twin pod cloud car at a TRU in Denver. Jun 30Th so a month early, Awesome!!!
I'm sure they had the rest earlier today but I didn't get there till noon. I passed on the Vader, Boba and 4-LOM
I even got the C3PO for 4.99 because i purchased 2 items

Lucky Day! check your TRU's people!  ;D

Was it the one off Havana? I was just there last month!

Why do all the stickler, by-the-book TRU employees work here in VA? (rhetorical question only)

Could anything happen to them legally if they sold them early? Store sanctions, etc?

Some jackhole on another forum was trying to give me crap for buying figures online at TRU at "inflated prices" and I had to explain that the figures actually cost $7.49 on the pegs now at any TRU, not just online.  ::)

That's funny, he would appear to be a Separatist, but Hasbro clearly alluded to a Clone pack-in with this offer in the most recent round of Q&A.

Looks like he will make a bad-ass figure to me, either way.

Odd that RS didn't see fit to hype this on their own front page.

Another TRU just south of here confirmed they had the vintage figures in stock in the backroom but refused to sell them to me ahead of the 8/6 date. I explained that a number of TRU's around the country were already putting these out this week, but they wouldn't budge.

Kind of frustrating the seemingly flexible adherance to this policy, but hardly surprising.

I foresee a repeat of the EU Wave issues with that 8/6 date. It's going to be ugly in some places I predict.

I scored one of these today - oh mamma.

Online or from a brick and mortar?

3667 order should arrive today, but there was still some stuff I couldn't get that I will need to start hunting for. I guess I should have figured that enforcement of the street date would vary from store to store.

Could be a road trip weekend for me :)

The Vintage Collection / The Street Date Debate

I was talking to a friend of mine who works at TRU at lunchtime and he said they actually got cases of the new vintage stuff on the truck today. He checked it out but they could not put them out until August 6th like the box indicates. Looks like they mean business with this street date stuff.

Still, at least it's shipping to the brick and mortars...I wonder when Target and K-Mart are due for theirs?

 ;D ;D ;D

I loves me some Robonino! He came out so great! They definitely did not skimp on accessories.

Here's hoping we see this before Christmas, I need at least 3 for my Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil montage.

This is good to know, because I actually was considering sending away for a 3rd before the deadline tomorrow, but I guess there's no point now.

I'm hoping the Fall Mailaway is equally appealing...I have a feeling it is going to be that Sergeant Bric we've been hearing about.

I always thought this was as simple as the shipping route from Asia. 

Thanks, that one actually makes the most sense out of what I've heard so far.

I was just trying to ask a question more than voice a complaint. I'm sincerely curious.

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition

Tough going trying to close out my vintage collection...I'm losing more auctions than I'm winning lately. I did persevere earlier tonight and come out on top in an auction for the vintage Sand Skimmer. VERY psyched about this one. They seem to be becoming somewhat elusive the past few months, fewer and fewer non-carded in circulation it seems. Pretty minty loose version I snagged, for a decent price as well. This just leaves the Imperial Sniper as the lone mini-rig on my list of remaining items to score.  :D

Count me in the crowd that thinks this looks amazing! Really good value too, 2 new ships, plus 3 new figures. In the pics it really dwarfs the Christophsis set...impressive.

I can't help but wonder about the price point - under $100 hopefully?

After realizing I could get free shipping with any order over $49, I went back and canceled my original order and re-submitted it with the new Clone Interceptor Tank thrown in to put me over the threshold. $60.83 total for 4 new TCW figures, plus the Vehicle. I figure that's probably not much more than I'd be likely to pay in the store anyway. Plus no brutal six week wait.  ;D

Super psyched about this, hope some of the rest of you guys get in on the action too!

Great news! has this whole wave in stock NOW and available for immediate shipping! ($9.99 a pop)

They also have the Snowspeeder and Bespin Cloud Car, also in stock as of this writing.

I just placed an order myself, I just couldn't hold out any longer.  ;D
