What's the case packout like, Anton?  Is it all Vader TIEs and Mace's JSF, or did Hasbro do the inevitable and pack in Grievous' Wheel Bike again?

Also, even though this isn't the thread for it, is the new paint/plastic job on the Vader TIE worth upgrading from the POTF2 version?  The few photos I'd seen online made it look more grayish and "dirty" than the POTF2 solid blue, and I was debating on picking it up to replace the old one.

'Tis only a matter of time before it hits NoVA. Can't wait for this, but I hope we get a Mace that can pilot it in the '07 line.

Sorry guys, pics are problematic being I'm on dial-up while visiting my wifes folks. :P I'm you'll be seeing them in person soon enough though.

Case pack out looks like this though, 2 Mace fighters, 2 Vader Ties, one Anakin fighter and Obi Wan fighter.

Yes, I can tell you that you are right, Mr. Anton. I saw that exact case at a Raleigh, NC Target today. Didn't pick anything up, though. I'm really low on cash.  :'(

Well, since these naboo/endor pics are being released the SAME DAY as the Mace vehicle/BP pics, I think they will come out around the same time: August. And, the battle pack WILL NOT PEGWARM. Unlike past BP's, this one is loaded with awesome clones that everyone will buy.

The Skirmish set warmed & that had 2 Shocks & a pod. :P

I think the pod, as a selling point, didn't outweigh the negatives to blowing $20 for 2 shocktroopers unfortunately.

Found them in CA this evening. Nice that they bothered to change the sticker sheet to the correct color this time, unlike the TRU Obi ship.

Scored this last night.  Altogether pretty cool.  But the astromech decals didn't fit very well.

Vader's TIE that is shipping along with the Mace SF is really worth mentioning. For a repaint, I'm really happy with it. There's a nice weathered paint wash to the body along with silver metallic pain nicks on both the fuselage and wings. It's an improvement over the original ones by quite a lot.

I'm still coming up short when it comes to finding either Mace's JSF or Vader's TIE.  Target has removed the 19.99 price point vehicle label from the shelves completely, and TRU is so overrun with Anakin and Obi-Wan JSFs from ROTS that there isn't room for any new stuff on the shelves.  It sucks that Wal-Mart doesn't seem to be carrying any non-figure items for the 3.75 inch line these days, because whenever I've had to rely on Target as my sole retail option, it's always been a pain.   :(

Any chance of some detailed shots of the Vader TIE for the photo archives, Jared?   :)

So, is Mace's fighter a tough find so far?  I found one a few weeks ago at Target (and picked it up), and I don't think I've seen a single one at any store since then.  Our WM isn't carrying vehicles at all, but all I have seen at Target and TRU has been the Anakin/Obi-Wan fighters, Wheelbike, etc.  I've also seen Darth Vader's TIE at Target, but that has also gone.  Just curious if anyone else was seeing this being fairly tough to find at this point or not.
