Hmm, we're rumoured to get those up here as well, I wonder if they'll be priced at the same price as the last gunship or if they'll catch on and jack the price up as well.  They were only $39.99 last time around in CAD.

This has got to be one of the coolest looking ships Hasbro was finally smart enough to make.  (you like how I compliment and insult Hasbro in the same sentence?  ;))

Well no luck at my local TRU tonight, I even checked their computer (myself) - none in the backroom.

I'd like to find one on the shelves so I can cancel my order from Amazon that will never ship!

(plus I can avoid the heavy shipping $$)

I cannot wait until these things come into my town, which will probably in two years. :-[

None of the TRUS in my area (which are few and far between now) have these in stock, but the warehouse has 780 ready to ship out.

I'm looking forward to this repaint more than any other vehicle in a long, long time.

It is way cool, and hats off to Genndy Tartakovsky for putting together such an imaginative and visually stunning side plot that even Hasbro had to buckle and make toys to go with it.  I was just looking at the pile of figures and ships we have for these animated chapters, and was stunned. There is room for (and product for) some cool dioramas.

At the risk of sounding too anti PT, I almost wish they had gone back and told the story of Vader in this style, rather than CG layers over mediocre acting and a pre-determined plot. AOTC and ROTS had some cool moments, and the clones and Palpatine rock, well, I guess I'll stop there. At least they didn't try to make Ewok senators.

For those buying this in stores beware.  Make sure the tape is in place correctly on the box sides and has not been cut and the old switcheroo has taken place.

I haven't seen or heard of any instances yet, but this kind of thing will happen here and there as it always does.  By and large, it's not a huge problem or issue.  No more than shoplifting is.

Mine is fine.  No swap aroo here! We are going to open it up this evening and put it together. I'll post some more pictures here when I do if people want. Let me know if you have questions about the ship.

By the way Jim said it I thought he had bought one and it had an older gunship in it or something.
