I chose to go to WM instead of Target for two reasons (1) I already have all of the Target winter exclusives and (2) just in case they put these out OR the WM Comic 2-packs out.

Unfortunately, they didn't even put out any new Star Wars product at all - not even older releases. The way the SW looked when I checked it Wednesday night was the same way it looked this morning.  ???

I agree with Darth Anton - last year the "repaint" waves were quite plentiful - especially at WalMart (at least in my area) and they shipped many times over.

I think that waves 7, 7.5 and 8 will be just as plentiful as the previous waves in the TAC.

p.s. Got the Mandalorian Battlepacks/Figure Sets from EE this morning. Makes up for coming up empty on my Black Friday toy run.

Went to WalMart this morning. Unfortunately there wasn't anything new - I was hoping they would get in a case of wave 7, 7.5 or 8.

Oh well...

I've been able to score all of the Target exclusives now...

AT-RT Battlepack - via almost a month ago...

Ultimate Battlepacks, Clone Wars ARC-170, TIE Bomber - Monday of this week

ARC-170 Elite Corps Battlepack - today

My biggest gripe about Target's "street dates" is that they are completely fictitious and are almost NEVER adhered to, so I never just sit back and go "well, I guess I have to wait until X date".

I've noticed that too and I've even cancelled orders for stuff that I found in stores months before their own expected shipping date - I think I did that with Wave 6 as a matter of fact.

It used to be that they would get stuff at the same time as say WM or Target, now they seem to be at least a month behind.

I wonder what changed in the marketplace to cause this.

Picked up the Target Exclusive ARC-170 Elite Corps BP, Droid Factory Encounter BP, Hunt for Grievous BP and Clone Attack on Coruscant BP today. Grabbed the two clone sets just for the packaging variant.

I haven't heard anything about these lately either. Which seems odd.

If they were a Black Friday item, then we SHOULD have heard something by now.


Called up target today, they said they had them but said they would refuse the sale becuase they have a street date for black friday.  ::) :-\

I saw a pallette of 10 cases of Ultimate Battle packs and there was a pink sticker on the side of the box that read:

"Wow or Never
Street Date:
9:00PM on Saturday
November 24th"

So I know they told you Black Friday, but I don't think they are supposed to put them out until Saturday night.

Doesn't matter, I bought two of each from this very same store yesterday. So your best bet is to try and hit your local Target as many times as you can.

I suckered myself into picking these up today.

It was really a no-brainer actually, the store I checked had priced them out at $23 each instead of $35 each.

They rang up the correct price at the register, but the gal made the price correction for me because of the price sticker.

So I got all three for $70 - still a rip off of course.

I guess I sorta fall into the evil "uber-completist" category - I really didn't care about them when they were European exclusives, but since they were released here, I felt compelled to pick up at least one set to keep MIB. If Hasbro had never released them here in the US, I would have never even cared about them. (so I hope that means I'm not all that bad)  ;D

I got an e-mail from EE too and according to the tracking info, I'll have them on Friday.

Here's what I've already bought:

TIE Bomber
ARC 170 (Clone Wars)
AT-RT Battle Pack
Battle of Hoth Ultimate Battle Pack
Battle of Endor Ultimate Battle Pack

Mandalorian/Elite Force Packs
7" Unleashed Trooper
Battlefront II Packs

TIE Interceptor (181st)
Geonosis Arena Battle Pack

Exclusive Tins from EP2, EP3 & EP6

And here's what I'm going to buy when I find them...

ARC 170 Battle Pack

Jabba's Band Battle Pack (Max Rebo Band)
Jabba's Band Battle Pack (Jabba's Dancers)
Comic Packs (Fett/DSD, Keller/Marine, Obi-Wan/Bail)

Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter w/Hyperspace Ring (2008?)

Picked up two TRU Clone Wars Republic Gunships this morning. Got my case of Titanium Figures Wave 2.5 from EntertainmentEarth today as well. This is the case that has one of each type (both figures painted and patina finish).

Also got some items from an auction I bid on to finish up what I needed in UGH figures. Unfortunately the items came crushed and the silver foil on one figure was torn, so I'm not exactly pleased.
