Big, or should I say expensive, month with this and the At-At.

Also, it figures since someone just scored the At-At for me. :P

I'm even less sure about this one as the AT-AT.  I picked up the Saga (blue box) version in a trade a while back.  Is this one that much better?

I hope my TRU gets some in. I saw the CW Gunship once, and never saw THFG battle pack, so I'm hoping a few of these at least come in.

Yep, found it at the Mesa Toys R Us last night. The item number is: 653569137870

The box is HUGE! It's as long as the red leader x-wing box but twice as wide.
The Dragonsnake looks pretty good despite the lack of color.

Sorry to butt in but I saw the post on the mainpage and thought I'd provide further detail.

yes, I believe so

Mmmm. . .  that's helpful.

Old Dagobah X-Wing:
--Excessive black-ass paint job
--Exclusive "dirty" R2-D2
--Camping supplies (later released with Saga2 Hoth R2-D2, albeit in a different color)

New X-Wing:
--More-normal paint job (I think)
--Exclusive retooled Dagobah Luke
--Exclusive swamp monster
--Exclusive swamp muck

If you don't have either, the new one looks like a better deal to me.  If you've already got the old one, that's a little bit harder a call.  Guess it really comes down to how much you want the Luke, the monster, and the muck.

Actually, the Item # is 430770 and this is the one you ask the employees to punch in the computer well, it's what I use anyway. It's also listed on TRU's site under the item.

I think the number D_H presented is the ISBN or UPC?

<I thought it WAS helpful so thanks Matthew>

I like the looks of this thing, and just grabbed an old dagobah playset off of ebay to set up with it. Now to just find it in the stores...

Well, even though I already have the 2002 Saga Dagobah X-Wing, I preordered this one.  I figure that someone, somewhere will want the 2002 version L/M/C for cheap at some point.  Plus, I already bought another VTSC Luke X-Wing Pilot and a Hoth R2-D2 with all the gear to put in the new one. :)

(And yes, film accuracy folks, I know that Luke didn't wear that particular outfit when he went to Dagobah, but all anyone will see of him is his head anyway).  ;D

Couple of questions though (and some of these can probably be addressed by the folks that bought the Endor AT-AT online):

1-Does this X-Wing still have the storage compartment behind the pilot seat like the 2002 version?

2-How long does it usually take TRU.com to ship out preordered exclusives?  I know that the Amazon days were a complete disaster in these cases (I was one of the ROTS wave 2 Unleashed victims), but I didn't know if now that the Endor AT-AT had started showing up in stores (and subsequently the Dagobah X-Wing) if TRU.com was shipping them out at the same time, or if there was a delay or what.

I'd wager it's still got the fold-down seat in the cockpit, Dr. P, only because a retooling of it would be very pointless on Hasbro's part...

Don't suppose anyone wants to unload the Luke and Dragonsnake? :)  I need those, but no ship...  I may get it for the junk and sell the ship then but I really wish this little stuff wasn't packed in with ships.  It's frustrating when that's all you want out of it.

For those of you who ordered it on the website, what is the status of your order. Mine says back order  ::)
