I am seeing these more frequently, usally about 4-6 at a time in Chicagoland.
they usally do not last too long. Keep your eyes peeled.

Amazon.com really screwed so many of us on this item. I got confirmation from them that I was one of the first 100 people to preorder on 1/24. I still never received it from them. Same goes for the Hunt pack, I was supposed to get it on 6/2. They still have not updated my account yet.
Luckily I have already found both on my own.

I do not hold out much hope with them for the AT-AT and Xwing...................
bastards! >:(

I went to my local TRU and saw 20 of these babies just sittin there.  I went back the next day and saw 5 or so.  It seems the price is not effecting buyers in my area just yet.

Yeah, Amazon really "dropping the ball" with majority of the public would be an understatement with the gunship and the "Hunt for Grievous" bp.  However, I was more fortunate on the gunships and actually received 2 from them and I preordered in the middle of April.  I can't say the same with the rest of my huge order.  I also managed to find "Hunt for Grievous" bp  so it is "cancel-city" for the morons at Amazon.  :P

These are starting to sit at my local TRU...I was in there looking for HFG and saw 2 on the shelves and 8 more up top...I was 5 bucks short of it, so I settled for some BBi Paratroopers and Marines.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

According to RS, some people have started receiving cancellations for their Gunship orders through Amazon.com.

No shock there for sure, but a bummer for people waiting.

Still...  I'd imagine most everyone has a TRU within an hour of them still, or close to it, and these things arne't going anywhere fast I've noticed.  Most TRU's I hit have at least 5 if not many more.  One nearby has them in bulk it seems even.

At the very least, what is/was cool about these is that you didn't have to show up in the morning to get one. There were so many that it took a few days for them to sell out.

I wonder how long it will be before TRU starts putting these on clearance.  I am thinking it might be a long time knowing them.

Although Amazon has had the Falcon at 24.98 for a while now by local TRUs still have both packages at 39.99.

For those people who had ordered it from Amazon (like I had), I received a notice that they and ToysRUs are no longer linked and that TRU now has its own site.

So, they cancelled my order. When I went to the TRU website (this was a couple of months ago) the Hunt for Grievous was sold out.

So, in case anyone was wondering, whatever partnership both had, is now defunct and most people will probably not be getting their orders.

LMK if anyone has heard the same about this OR if you DID get your order.

You are right.  A few months ago when Amazon and TRU parted ways we talked about this in several threads and it was front page news as well.  I do not know the exact date but they have been separated for a while now.
