It seems to be shelfwarming here in Minnesota. I saw six today at one Target and 2 at another.

We must just be behind a bit here then, which wouldn't surprise me.  The Endor wave is still just trickling in too, so maybe more of these are still on the way.  Just curious if it was selling that well, or if it was just a regional thing.

I'm in a simmilar situation Brian where Endor isn't even trickling in (I haven't talked to anyone locally who has seen it recently I don't believe), and the Mace fighter is a trickle at best though someone did score one the other day...  It's high on my list.  I'm not a vehicle fan from Hasbro mostly but the JSF's are pretty flawless pieces in the line.

Just wondering if everyone else has the same issue with the boxes I have...My Mace box has in indention near the upper middle and my Vader's Tie box has a buldge in the same area...I've noticed the same issue with others I've seen at Taret as well.

It might just be the placement in the case- my box has a good corner ding, but the middle of the box seems untouched. Maybe the one next to Vader takes a crease from something bulging in his (there's something PG-13 about that sentence).

I've noticed more than a few items in the SW section at my local Target having heavily damaged boxes over the course of the last few weeks, and the Mace JSF and Vader TIE are just two of them.  The Vader TIE I got there's box was almost completely crushed in on the back (luckily the ship was okay), and their case of the UL Hoth Snowspeeder and Turret sets was almost completely trashed.

That said, excellent decision on Hasbro's part to reship the already saturated Anakin and Obi-Wan JSFs in the case with the Vader TIEs and the Mace JSF.  I'd bet someone a pickle that they reship those two JSFs again this fall with the AAT and Hailfire Droid because it would just be too logical not to do so.

Um yeah, I've seen the Vader TIE twice and Mace's JSF twice (once at Target and once, believe it or not, at Wal-Mart), and I bought one of each.  They're nowhere near shelfwarming here, but it's mainly because the Anakin and Obi-Wan JSFs are already doing so.  :P

Nor here, and I wanted the Mace fighter badly but I'm really concerned now due to the exact problem you mentioned Dr.P...  Whole lotta Obi/Ani...  Whole notta Mace/Vader.   :-\

What would've been great, and this is maybe just my opinion but I think it is true, is if they'd released the blue and green painted JSF's from TRU last year, but no figure/spiffy package.

I missed those and would LOVE to have them in my collection, and they still have some legs to move at retail...  The yellow/red paintjobs are dead in the water though and were in 2005 after their oversaturation at that point...  Was pointless to put them back in circulation to begin with really when they were still available in ROTS packaging at some stores.

Agreed - the green/white and blue/white starfighters were very cool looking.

That's a good idea - maybe add / remove some battle damage to make them a little different from their previous release.

I guess I am in a lucky area ship-wise because several of my local Targets have goobs of these ships.  I counted 5 Mace fighters and 3 Vader TIEs at one last night.  I have yet to buy either.  I have 2 POTF2 Vader ones so I am good but I may pick up Mace's, just to have my all inclusive rainbow jedi squad.

I've seen multiple occurances of both the Mace Starfighter and the Vader TIE.  I've resisted so far on both.

Like Jesse mentioned previously, this style of Starfighter is one of my favourite from the prequels, so I'm looking forward to grabbing Mace Windu's.  Assuming I find it, of course.

It is a good looking ship open too- The R2 is a little wanky, but I like that ship style and it is an eye catching deco. It really sits nice next to the CW gunship.

I've yet to see this, and am a little concerned...  It's been out a while for it not to have shown at all.  I haven't seen Vader's fighter either which shipped with it but should've (in theory) sold less rapidly...  I hope I find a Mace Fighter soon though, I don't want to miss out on it and have to resort to begging like usual.
