Looks like the VTSC are in stock at KBToys.com now, 9.99 each if you can't find them in your neck of the woods.

I suppose the Heat-sealed are all from Target theory is debunked, but I'll add that the ones I found this morning at Walmart were heat-sealed.

I was wondering last night how the hell it could be that KB was selling a Saga 12" biker for FIFTY dollars, then I saw that. I actually think I saw that Brian's was selling through KB's site a long time ago, I just forgot about it.

I found these at Walmart yesterday... I noticed the clamshell packaging is different from Walmart than it is at Target.  Target has the vacuum sealed sides, but Walmart is still packaged with the tape like the VOTC figures... anyone else notice this?

Edit - I needed to read back a bit.  I see this is being found like this elsewhere too.

Saw the taped ones for the first time today at TRU. Weird that they would get them and the rest that Ive seen have been heat sealed.

I've seen heat sealed and taped at Wal-mart and for some reason the taped ones sold out  ??? Also keep a look out, I found a Greedo laying on a shelf with the bottom torn open, most likely the sticker was missing.

On a somewhat related note.  I just took the Cloak from the new SAGA Obi-Wan and used it on the VOTC Ben from last year.  This is how it should of been down.  It looks fantastic.  Goodbye poofy coat.  It also works fabulously on the ROTS Mace.

The VTSC I found at TRU were tape-sealed...haven't found any at my Target so I can't say if they're heat-sealed.

I didn't find the Biker Scout anywhere but did pick up the Endor Han. Easily the best Han fig to date, I just love it.

These showed up at our local Target on Friday, at $11.99 each.  I already found most of what I want (maybe another Scout or Tusken eventually) at WM/TRU (and cheaper) so I passed on them there for now.  Our local WM had a ton of these last week, and still have some leftover, although the Scouts are all long gone.  Luke/Han/Tusken have a few left, and there are a whole mess of Greedos sitting about there right now.

I got a chance to open one of each this weekend, and I really have to say this series seems to be pretty consistently good.  There were some complaints with the initial 12 figures that they were kind of inconsistent - some were great (Han, Stormie, Chewie), some weren't so great (3PO).  Even though Greedo wasn't maybe necessary in this line, after opening him up he is a pretty nice figure.  The cloth vest might not have been a must either, but the figure itself is well done.  The Scout and Han are amazing, and the Tusken and Luke are good too.  I thought across the five figures, this line was pretty good - they'd be better at the basic pricepoint - but the quality was good I thought.  What are your opinions on the VTSC?

Anyone else get ripped off on the POPs?  I opened my figs last week, but put the packaging aside for another date.  Tonight I opened up the little baggies and two of my silver stickers had been replaced by crudely cut out xeroxes!

Not a disaster, because I will buy another Biker and Tusken.  BTW, they were taped versions form TRU.

Figs are wonderful...

These have been hanging about a bit at WM and Target, but not before selling through the majority of what they have/had.  Target just had a case or so on the pegs to begin with, and probably have 5 figures or so left.  WM at one time had just tons of these on an endcap display, but now the leftovers are stuck on a peg - away from the rest of the SW merchandise - actually next to the Marvel figures.

It really seems like the Luke X-Wing is a pretty good seller, at least around here.  Maybe that is due to his figure having the "redemption form", or just because he's popular.  There have been a lot of Greedos, quite a few Endor Hans, and just a couple Lukes here and there.  The Scouts are long gone of course, and aside from one Tusken at Target this past weekend, those are gone as well.  Hopefully we'll see some more shipments of these, I wouldn't mind picking up 1-2 more Scouts or Tuskens, but we'll see I guess.
