At least that question wasn't a complete waste of time...  And considering the lameness of the set, let the peasants rejoice that they don't have to worry about WM's horrid distribution to find it (well, most people anyway...  To those who want it though, sorry).

I just noticed that HLJ has the Father's Day Fig. Darth Vader & Luke Skywalker up for preorder. $23.90 US if you preorder before May 10th.

Gotta give marks for originality on this one. I know my kids would want to get it for me.

When is this thing supposed to be available - tomorrow??  So Father's Day is 06/17 which means that I'll end up either not ever finding this thing at all or possibly finding it long after Father's Day..

Sorry, I just haven't complained about WM in awhile plus I thought this thread needed a bump.

I saw these yesterday quite lame in terms of figure choices but for $10 I guess it ok. I passed.

At least it isn't the "Who's your daddy?" pack with Anakin and Padme.  ;)

Shouldn't the "Who's your daddy?" set have Anakin & Shmi?  :)

I saw these the other night too. I think it was Tuesday night. I have one stashed, but for now I'm worried about finding Biggs to finish out Wave 3 and getting the Vintage figs.

Our Wal-Mart had (or probably still has) these, but they're tucked away in the back of a toy aisle.  I don't know why they didn't put them out in a more visible area, at least for the week of Father's Day.  I picked one up for my Dad, just because the first movie I saw in a theater (Return of the Jedi) I went to with him, and the last time I saw a SW movie in theaters (ROTS), I also went with him.  I grew up watching the movies with him, and he got a kick out of the two pack.

Never saw these around here either. In fact, my wife really wanted to get me one of these and had no such luck.

I knew I'd never see these, and I actually didn't care much for this exclusive.

Whoa...My mom took me to my first movie - Jedi and I took her to Sith.  Kinda completed the circle or what not.  It felt good to return the favor....yes it's very geeky.  :-[

There are two Wal-Marts in my area that had lots of them.

I passed.  If it gets down to $5, I'll pick one up.

Scored two of these sets.  I initially planned on opening one, mainly because of the kitbashed Luke.  But seeing just how good the VTAC Bespin Luke came out, I may not even open one of these.

We've got about 3 or 4 dozen of them on an endcap.  I think if it goes real cheap I'll get one just because, but otherwise I have a rough time justifying buying anything like it for the price it's at.  I'd think they should hit clearance before long.  They had all of like 3 weeks on the shelves before father's day too.  Dumb that they didn't get them out sooner, and for god's sake put them out on the main aisle at least, if not near the father's day stuff.  ours are in a back aisle endcap in the toy department along with a bunch of Vader Coin folders.  ::)
