I don't know if it is just our area, or just the timing right now, but it seems like ever since the "holiday shopping" season began a week or two ago (or sooner), the battle packs have been pretty scarce around here. I know that our local Target has had several of the Tantive BPs on the shelf for a long time now, along with a couple others, and the only one that is left there now is the same Dagobah one where all the figures are laying at the bottom of the box (I kind of hope they put that one on clearance, as I'd like another OTC Yoda and Spirit Obi
). Anyways, it does seem like parents/grandparents might be scooping these up as gifts for the kiddos this season. I have to admit, most of them are a pretty decent deal. You have to imagine they are looking at it like "well, here I get five figures for basically $4 each, and if I buy figures individually they are close to $7". Star Wars in general does seem to be selling decently though, vehicles have been more picked over as well. I know we want to get our nephews each a Jedi starfighter (probably Mace and Anakin), and after waiting for months, they're all disappearing now.
