Weird that I have completely ignored this thread. Yesterday, I went to TRU and found both of these sets for $29 each. I thought they were new since I've never seen either set at TRU until yesterday. They only had one of each.
A couple of days ago, Target had five of the ROTH-DEL MASONA VS. SUPER BATTLE DROID sets for $17.95 each (orig $12.99). They were actually in the computer system and in great shape. They must have found them in the back and put them out with the new reset. Of course, I didn't buy them.
Got the Stormtrooper/Technician pack from Kmart yesterday. They were pretty even in numbers with the other pack. They also had two ewok catapult packs. I think they will be sitting for the next six months.
I agree with Diddy on all points regarding the ship. I also got mine on Christmas eve and opened it Christmas day. It's a huge ship and a big improvement over the last one. I also wish the wings wound stay in flight mode when held vertically like the original vintage version did. A handle would have made this a lot more play friendly. Anyway, great ship and I'm glad I got it for $35.
Opened my 6" Slave girl Leia Christmas morning. This is an ok figure. Her eyes make her look like an Egyptian hieroglyphic. She definitely has child-bearing hips. Wow! Could they have made those a little smaller? She is kind of a let down.
