I wonder how many of these we're going to see returned after the holiday? I've seen a lot on e-bay, some selling them in lots of 10. ??? I can't believe all of these would sell.

I am in ifetts neck of the woods, and it is strange. Some stores sold out instantly, others have an end cap that looks untouched since they came out. Snowspeeders too- One store here has DOZENS of them on clearance ($21.00), and I don't see any at the other 4-5 stores I tend to hit.

Clearance already!  :P

Overall, ehat does everyone think of the shuttle promotion? I personaly think it was great because it didn't seem hard to get and it seems like everyone who wanted one got one. It also seem to have sold well, so I would think that could lead to other such offerings.

Our local store was down to 2 Shuttles this weekend, and they were stocked in the "regular" Star Wars section now, with no special endcap display anymore.  Maybe there are more in back, and they will replenish on the shelf (since there is only room for two), but either way, there's just two out there right now.  They've been slowly selling after I originally saw 16 of them a couple weeks ago.  I wonder if they'll hit clearance, it seemed like a pretty good deal already for what you get - but with Targets quick clearancing, I'm sure some will find these for $30 or less if they're lucky.

My Target still had two last night and I talked to someone in toys and they said that they just got more in their truck yesterday...  I'm really hoping that these hit the clearance bin in the near future.

Gone!  Every Target in the county is now sold out of these.  Thankfully another forum member bought an extra one for me when they first came out, so I'll still be able to get this.  Doesn't look like I'll be saving money and getting this on clearance like I had hoped.  Oh well, at least I ended up with one.

Good luck to the rest of you holding out hope that these will hit the clearance rack.

Man, that stinks. I have NEVER seen one of these on the shelves. And I go to 2 different Targets on a regular basis (at least once a week)...

There were at least 4 at my Target that are now gone.  I have the FAO one, so no big loss to me.  Actually, I'm thrilled vehicles are selling so well this season.  What my store never had, though, were any Snowspeeders.

I'm putting an urgent call out to my fellow JD'ers.  My wife had been trying to find a Star Wars vehicle for me for Christmas, but had no luck.  Has anyone still seen any of the Shuttles on their local Target shelves?  I'll gladly cover the costs!  (I'll post a want ad in the Classifieds, so feel free to PM me).

I have not seen these things in weeks.  It looks like they sold well, especially at that price.

I'm really glad to see that the Shuttle sold so well.  I think it bodes well for any fan of the vehicle line and the large vehicles that we've been asking for on the various message boards.  And with Darryl DePriest mentioning on the Forcecast that the AT-TE is something that Hasbro has seriously looked at doing along with mention of the Clone Turbo Tank in the Q&A sessions, I think that vehicle fans can be genuinely optimistic about vehicles.

Good point Nicklab- it sends a good message to the big H. Particularly if they time it around the holidays.

These things were oddly distributed at my local stores. A few had a bunch for a while, then zing, they were all gone.

What did this thing do in the vintage days with its "new fangled" electronics.  Never owned one as a kid, though I do have a vintage one with non-working electronics.  I know there's no lights, so was it the wings that folded up and down??
