I had that happen to me.  I called the day before, asked, and they said, "yep, we have a truck coming in today", so I come the next day, and they have sold two, and two are on hold.  Luckilly I learned from my mistakes, called another store, and held the one that was there.

How is the foam on the playset, is it intact? As you might know it breaks down pretty bad over time and when you touch it, it feels moist like the consistency of a Hostess Cupcake.




The foam is long gone, but that is easy to replace-  ;)

I just noticed that my X-Wing box has a TRU security sticker on the back near the UPC code.  Kinda like the ones that are included with some DVD's.  I suppose it'd be kinda difficult to walk out the door with this thing in your pocket though.

Thats pretty funny, the box is huge. If someone can walk out with it they deserve it.  :P

People will try to walk out the door with anything that is not nailed down.  They will try harder with stuff that is.  I know, I used to catch them. ;D
I've been looking for the X-wing here and have yet to spot one.

It barely fits in TRU's large bag.  The box is really cool, but I think it's just a LITTLE oversized.  Especially when you consider the size of the original Dagobah X-Wing box and the Red Leader X-Wing box.

My local TRU had a ton of these and TIE Fighters on the shelves and up high on the top.  These should be around quite a while I'm imagining, especially at the price...

Anyone interested in the X-Wing with the muck on it, but not the LUke or Dragonsnake?  I'd like the latter pieces but the ship's of no interest to me.

I feel the same way, but bit the bullet just to get the dragon snake. I am hoping I will somehow get Zev Zenesca without actually having to buy the Target Snow Speeder. No interest in that one. At least with this one, the swamp muck is kind of cool.  ;D

The box is definately bulky and has that funky shape. I wish these were less expensive, it looks so nice in the box I almost want a second to keep that way.

If I decide to open it, I'll sell the snake.

I'll keep that in mind Clone Hunter.  I think I've tracked one down actually from a local buddy, but I'll definitely keep your offer in mind.

Am I wrong in thinking there's a packaging variation on this thing?  The pictures I've seen online show the dragonsnake thing under the wing of the X-Wing, and I think I've seen one in person like that, but today I saw one in the store where the beastie is out in the open, sort of in front of Luke.  Change in packaging, or figment of my imagination?

Over all this was cool item  but I am currently selling the actual X-wing. I am keeping the muck, luke and snake. I like the paint job on the 2002 version much better. It looks really swampmy when you put the muck on that version. The new paint sceme is a bit skimpy. For $5 it delivers more value than the Gunship and Tie fighter.

I got this bad boy yesterday. Totally worth it. I missed out on the original exclusive dagobah X-wing (the only one I had was the POTF one) so this was a great find. It looks great with my Dagobah playset from back in the day. :)
