Yeah they're not lingering here.  TRU sells through them very fast, Target I've never seen them, Wal-Mart has sold through and restocked already, and K-Mart is the only place they seem to sit (at an inflated $32 and change pricetag).  I'd like a full set if I thought I could sell off some figures from them I think, but alas nobody wants Obi's and Qui-Gon's these days.

Picked up an empty box for storage (wave 2.) For those who are curious about such things, they ship 4 to a box.

Box also says that these are part of the Saga collection. ???

Saw about 22 or so of the WM exclusive Cantina set last night with probably 80 tins of various types on a center isle 'feature' display last night at WM.

Anyone else seen switching with these guys? Mine was with 3PO & Vader from ANH set. Strangely Vader looks like the better figure out of the ANH tin.

Boy I was tempted to get the ESB back set just for the snowy Chewbacca.  But lucky my wife was there to give me the shifty-you-want-to-spend-almost-$30-on-that-stare?

I know exactly how you feel.  All I wanted was the snowy Chewie and my wife was actually in favor.  I carried the set around for a few minutes too but eventually took it back.  I just  could not piss away $30 for a figure.  That is something I have not done in a long time, a long time.

I have the ANH and ROTJ tins so far, and I'll get the ESB when I get a chance.  I really like the Chewie sculpt, but the snow paint apps look more like stepped in a gallon of Sherman Williams than snow ;D

I want the Snow Chewie as well.  I don't know if $30 is worth it though.  The tin itself is kind of nice, the best of them I think.  The art is great.

I spent $30 for the Chewie. :P
The Snow trooper's head is good, buy ofcourse the body is crap. Until Hasbro spits out SA VOTC versions I'll be OK w/ Han & Luke.  Han's pose sucks ass.

The Ball jointed hed on the Endor Soldier from the POTJ head was a nice touch that I had overlooked in all my reading about the sets. Too bad getting more would be expensive.

Finnally got around to opening my ANH Tin set, just for the Sandtrooper. Is it me or did they not even try on the new torso? Pictures just don't do the craptacular job justice, it's just...bad. Leaving the paldrun on really helps, but forget about making him a regular stormie.

Strangely only 1 WM out our local 4 has the cantina set and it appears to be not selling well there. I looked the other day and realized they had more than I originally thought ..it looks like the one store still has 28 of the cantina(modal nodes) set left in the endcap. On the flipside the endcap had like 80 some odd other type tins last week and now there's less than 40 of those left.

At least for 1 of the other WM's here it shares it's whse with this one and I think they're supposed to split product 50/50 and it looks like that didn't happen here.
(so I was told by a manager anyway :-\)
