I picked up all 6 of these today.  Love all of them except for the Yoda/Kashyyyk trooper pack.  That one's going back.

One thing that I noticed that I didn't see posted before, was that some of the figures come with additional accessories packed on the bottom of the packaging:

Palpatine comes with an additional hand and Sith lightning.
Yoda comes with an additional hand and a cane.
Anakin comes with his ungloved mechanical hand.
Obi-Wan comes with an additional hand and his lightsaber hilt.  The AT-RT Driver comes with the battle damaged chest plate.

It still doesn't change the fact that these are not the best figures and that Hasbro could have given us better ones, but at least they added enough to these packs to make them ok.

Street date for these is April 8th?

I just had an odd conversation with a manager about these. Since I keep getting shot down on getting these, unlike some people (Crunchy Nug, I'm looking in your direction) I tried the civil approach. Since my local Target has these in the back room, I asked the manager how secure these are and if they'll make it to the shelves tomorrow. He was very nice, so I know the wasn't yanking my chain. He checked the DCPI, went in back, came out and said that they have lots, but the shelf day he has is 4/8. ??? So if these aren't out tomorrow, that could be why.

I had a really helpful guy help me out at Target this morning, but these were no shows.  No word of a date on them.  All the POTC and Spidey stuff went out on schedule (as did the 30AC).

Sorry DA, but he was yanking your chain.  Just becasue someone's nice to your face, doesn't mean they're telling the truth.  When I was checking for Target shuttles, I remember a very nice service desk lady who told me that the little red boxes on the aisles are rarely accurate and that there were no shuttles in back.  Went back the next day and they were on the shelf, with the red box checker now indicating there were none in back. 

Anyway, I went into Target today, checked their inventory machine ( I love those things ), and asked a red shirt if he could pull the O#66 items from the back because there were none on the shelf.  Most guys go verify a shelf location, but this guy skipped that part, which is lucky since there was no shelf location even though the aisle had reset.  He came back with the case, but before he would give it to me, he said he had to verify the street date and take the case out of inventory.  After checking, he specifically mentioned that there was no street date assigned to these figures and sent me on my merry way.

I saw three of the sets today, and decided just to get Vader/Bow. The obi pack bothers me because of the repack I already have 4 of (thanks to needing to get several UGHs to complete the silver holo set). The Anakin set was a letdown with that airborne- why can't the helmet fit better? I would rather it wasn't removeable and looked decent. I may still pick up the Mace/Marine and/or the emperor set, but I'll have to see them first.

I've dealt with a lot of jerk managers. This guy could have been mis-informed, but I know he wasn't yanking my chain because he bent over backwards to get me an answer and told me to call him directly after the store closed to find out if they would be on the shelves tomorrow. Gave me his personal extention.

Hey, wait a second... he wasn't hitting on me was he? :o

Picked up my Order 66, ran into a "tough" stock manager but once she realized that we were honest people she was relaly cool. She started to describe a really bad scalper (one that I have had many runins with) and I said, ya dont worry we dont like him either and after that..she was really cool..Its a new store so its best to keep good realtions with the natives.

I picked up Mace/Palpatie/Vader ..the Anakin one was "ok"  the other two...well they are going to  be self warmers I think.  I was really happy with the Mace/Galactic Marine..
