I've got 5 sets now - 4 from Walmart, 1 that my wife picked up for me yesterday at Target.

As of right now, they are being packed 2 a case along with the Dag and the BOG battle packs..I find it very odd the way Hasbro produces some of these Battle Packs..Too much of one, not enough of others ( Hunt for Greivous) I know the ones the have clones fly off the shelves even before they hit them..but...a good question for Hasbro?

Picked a set up at Target. I wasn't sure about it, but considering I got two Stormtroopers and two Rebels plus a Vader for $20, I thought it was good. Plus the Stormtroopers looked pretty neat.

Same here.  Luckily Ackbar is saving me one!  ;)

I'd love to pick one up, but I'm not too worried about it yet.


Maybe this is just my payback for finding VOTC Stormtroopers in almost every store I walked into for 5 months.

Look at it this way, what other BP's are on the way? Unless the BP line is going away, they're have to put something on the shelves so one would think they'll get stocked eventually.

Exactly.  They are also shipping 2 per case with 1 each of the repack figs, so they'll probably be pegwarming before long.  I was going to pick up a bunch of these bcause I love this part of the movie, but I already have a bunch of RFT's and vaders, so $20 for two stormies is a bit rich for my blood.   :-\

Picked up two more sets today at Target (which I shouldn't have done, I really can't affort these), then saw a returned one at Walmart with the damn "switcharoo" with older figures put back in.

Still no sign of these around here, although I think our Target had them at one point since I saw one each of the Dagobah/Geonosis sets.  Our local WM and TRU don't have any Battle Packs at all, and Target just has the Ilum ones at this point.  Hopefully these will ship heavier, or at least continue shipping for awhile.  I wouldn't mind picking up at least one set, just for a couple more nice Stormies.

These are at every target I've been to in the last week.  Time to get to Target if anyone's still looking for them.  ;D

TRU and Target have both been loaded with these in my neck of the woods.  After seeing what the removable helmet stormie looks like, I changed my tune on these and have picked up 7 so far.

I don't love the Tantive IV trooper, but the way I see it I'm paying $7.50 each for 2 nice stormies then splitting the last $5 between the 2 RFT's I don't want all that much. 

That wretched looking stormie that I was going to load up on in wave 3 really made me do a 180 on this battle pack.

I just wish I could find a pack where the stormtroopers that weren't pillaged out of the package. Someone in my neck of the woods is pulling figures out of BPs and returning them with missing figures. Our target store employees are too stupid to know they are receiving an incomplete item.
