One of our Targets fully stocked yesterday for the reset too, I almost fainted from sheer excitement. They had the AT-AT, plus the new Hoth BP's, and two rows of pegs full of TVC figures. I FINALLY got my MOC Boba Fett.  ;D

Also, at TRU, in case anyone cares, they appeared to have a newer wave of Legends out. The Han in Snow Gear was the giveaway.

I picked up both of these last night and think they are really great. Love the Retail Droid, and the Squad clones are sharp too. I much prefer these to the repack sets we were seeing a few months back.

BIG scores last of the local Targets had gone ahead and fully stocked for the reset. They had TVC figures, TCW figures, Legends, all the new vehicles, deluxe sets (Wave 1 only), PLUS the 4 new Battlepacks AND the new AT-AT!!!  ;D

I drooled over the AT-AT for a few minutes, but I had already made the decision to hold out for the Vintage packaged version. Hard to walk away from that bad boy though.

I did go ahead and pick up the Droids & Clones BP as well as the Anti-Hailfire Squad - they are both marvelous. I also picked up a very minty Boba Fett from the TVC line to replace the 2 slightly dinged ones I had already procured from TRU.

They also had the Rex and Ani Force Battlers or whatever. Still can't decide if I want these or not. They look pretty cool though, and are definitely in the animated style, so it's a maybe.

I have a feeling the proverbial flood gates are about to open. Yee-haw!

None of the TRU's within 100 miles of here have gotten any of these yet.  ???

And the local stores are down to getting only 1 truck a week now on Tuesdays.

I want at least 2 of these MoFo's...BADLY.

I made a few Target runs last night with varying levels of success.

About half of them had started the section reset - 2 rows of pegs for TVC, 1 each for Legends and TCW. (Sorry, this is just not enough space for TCW, it is hard enough to find those waves as it is)

One location had the new vehicles on the shelves - Cloud Car, Interceptor Tank, etc. All were badly beat up boxes.

Another location had the new GH 2-packs, I sort of hate these things but I had to buy the Aurra Sing one for my focus.

None of them had new figures at all.

One of the local Targets had their last remaining Legacy figures on clearance. There were 3 Willrows left. $1.51 each.

I almost felt compelled to buy them all at that price. $1.51!!!

Oddly enough, I scored the new Obi-Wan w/Barc Speeder and SideCar Deluxe set tonight at TRU. I had not heard of the Wave 1 Revision 2 hitting yet, so this was a cool surprise.

What sucks is it also means I missed the Mando with Speeder set that I am really stoked for...durnit.  >:(

Kinda frustrating that we have THREE K-Marts here and none of them have gotten even a whiff of these yet. Plenty of room on the pegs too.

In all the hubbub surrounding SDCC last week, I negelected to mention my latest Vintage score - the Imperial Sniper.  :D

This completes my collection of mini-rigs, and a fine addition it is too.

One step closer!

I agree, but that is why they should be much more in control of their own images.  They should get a blog, and post pictures as soon as they are done...and beat all the fan sites.

Is it just me, or were there no TCW carded figures in the presentation?

They showed a carded Cad Bane just as an example of the new packaging style, but no actual "new" figures. I was really hoping for something from Waves 5 or 6.

It was cool to get a look of the upcoming Clone Trooper's flamethrower weapon. That must be a pretty big bubble to squeeze that droid in too. I thought the R2 from that wave was supposed to be new too though?  ???

Didn't see a separate thread for this, but has the new Clone Troopers and Droids BP in stock and up for sale now - $23.99. I am considering the site to store option now, except I dread getting a dinged box somehow.

They have a boatload of other swag up now too, including the RC Hailfire Droid.

Thanks for the alert on the front page guys - great scoop!

What a complete an utter suckfest!!!

Biggest waste of time EVER! Thank God I'm only sitting at work.  ;)

I missed the first few minutes, but from what I saw there was absolutely nothing new shown at all. About the only thing I noted of passing interest was the slide confirming the Xanadu Blood for the TCW line.

Last year's slide had a LOT more sneak peeks. I realize this year is different with CV coming up, but that excuse only goes so far. There has to be SOMETHING "new" out there they could share.

Saw Smash and Jayson schooling the chat forum...nice work representin' fellas.

I believe the Hasbro slideshow presentation is slated for this evening, but not sure about the exact time. Anyone else have a clue?

Picked these up last night at K-Mart and I really like the Plo Koon & Speeder Bike set even more than I expected. I think they really upgraded him nicely, and the bike redeco is kinda cool. The Cad Bane set is right there though, love those retractable guns. The Skiff seems a bit ho-hum to me somehow. Kinda "retro sci-fi" almost.

Yep, the K-Mart buzz got me motivated too...I drove across town last night and scored all the new Deluxe sets for around $53. (Ouch, BTW) Great to have these, all in very good condition packaging-wise too.

No sign of Jodo Kast yet, but apparently he has been spotted already out of state, so the Hunt continues.

Nothing new whatsoever at TRU. Kinda weird they are not trying to capitalize on their corner of the market by restocking the TVC stuff around here, they kidn of shat their wad and that was it.  :-\

and no sign of Kul Teska or the AT-AT either.
