Brian, did you nab the Target sets yet?  Jesse, the Wal-Mart sets? 

Yes, I'm good to go, JediMoses grabbed them for me!  Thanks for asking.  8)

I actually got the Jabba set from my wife for Christmas, so that was a nice surprise (thanks for asking though DBK).  As far as the other sets, I have seen all of them at this point (just saw the WM ones last night), but just have to pass right now.  Money is tight and I can't shell out $20 for the 1-3 "new" figures in those last few sets.  The Jabba in the other set made it more than worth it to me, but I already have an X-Wing, and as much as I'd like some of those Cantina figs, I'm going to have to pass for now.

I'd love some help on the Jabba Palace version too.  If anyone sees them in their area can you drop me a PM?

To my surprise, my friends gave me 4 GH sets for my birthday today.  I got the 2 from Target and the 2 from TRU.  Matt, so much for quiting this line...

I got a Jabba's Palace Cinema Scene set today at Target using the DCPI trick.  I'd given up hope trying to track one of those down at retail.

That's odd.

I might try that.

No luck.  Funny how the WM sets are sitting and the Target sets never made it to the shelf...

Not quite - at least in my area.  The Target sets were both on the shelves for at least a full week at most stores before they dried up.  Only (1) of my WMs managed to stock their sets and they chewed through all of theirs within a few weeks.

I know some of you guys asked for help on the Target sets...I have not seen them locally but have and will keep my eyed peeled for them for you.

Sold the Prequel stuff as a lot on ebaY as well as some of the OT dups that were repainted or repacked in the Cinema Scenes to offset some of the costs for getting a few new figs in these cinema scenes.

According to Jeff's post on the front page, you can get a free poster when you buy any GH's from HasbroToyShop.com.  Pretty cool.

I received my poster today

Scott, how big is the poster?
