I'd rather see a film accurate Yoda sitting in the chair too, but I think this is still pretty cool.
The spring loaded wing launch does require a measure of pressure on the release to get them to open but I'd rather have that than wings that flip open on their own.
What's a GWP, Pete? Is that "Giveaway With Purchase"?
If so, that'd be my guess. I think that's what Jeff was already told on the Vader, at least, so I'd guess the TRU Yoda might be a similar deal. Interesting little battle of the exclusives, if that's the case.
Not like everybody's going to pass one store over in favor of the other now, obviously. I'm guessing most people are just going to go to both stores at some point that day/night, and just nab 'em both. Definitely a decent attempt to draw the buyers in for their more expensive figures at those places.
So we'll be buying as much as we can at the cheaper WM prices, and then spending an additional $20 on whatever at both TRU and Target to get their GWPs. Sounds like a plan...
The screwholes just seem so overdone... the big X-Wing didn't have any like that, did it?
I don't see why they would need to make it like this.
A Gungan, Wookie, Ewok pack would be interesting I think, since people draw parallels to those 3 in the films.
Galactic Hunter has some more hi-res figure shots up. You can check out Palpatine (#35) and General Grievous (#36) right HERE, and take a look at some clone-tastic pictures of the Clone Commander, Clone Pilot, and AT-RT with Pilot right HERE.
Ok, I got to thinking. Maybe just the one side of it has the screw holes. Make sense? If you look at the shots with the screws, from what I see it's always one side of the ship.
The pics that don't show any holes are always the other side of the ship.
There could be more pics out there that I haven't seen though. Who knows...
Can anyone shed some more light on this?
Yeah, that is sort of what I was thinking at first too. It just seems strange to me that the Hasbro reps would even bring those figures along, let alone set them up at first, only to take them down before any outlets photographed them. I would think they would be more organized than that, to show up and say "oops, we weren't supposed to bring these figures, better hide them". Then again, you never know .
Also, every figure we've seen previewed has April 02 listed as a release date.
Interesting. But I think we have to take that with a grain of salt because the Cargo Bay is notorious for having release dates out of wack. I remember looking through the Micromachines section a while ago and they were out to lunch on a few things.
But if they're right, it's going to be a hell of wild start on April 2!
