Is everyone agreed that the Camo-At-Rt driver is going to be the shelf warmer this time around?

I don't know, the AT-RT Driver might be my favorite of the bunch. Definitely more badass looking than the ROTS figure. I cannot wait until these sets come out, as I plan to pick up a full set and make a nice squad of commando type troopers. Hasbro really hit the nail on the head with this round, while I believe last year's bunch really suckered in a lot of suckers (including myself, to be honest)

I don't know what my breakdown is going to be this time around. Last time I was able to go nuts on the army builders because of clearance. This time, I'm going to try to hold to one each regardless, but could pick up multiple At-Rt drivers or Barc troopers.

Here's what I'll get from this wave (albeit I'll be waiting for clearances):

1x Obi-Wan & ARC Trooper Commander
1x Anakin & ARC Trooper
5-6x Master Tsui Choi & Barc Trooper (all but 2 of the Master Tsui Choi's I'll have will be up for sale/trade when I get these. Cost will be half what I paid, plus exact shipping to you. A deal if you ask me, since he is a new figure.)
2-3x Palpatine & Commander Vill
2x Luminara Unduli & AT-RT Driver (The extra Luminara will be up for sale/trade. Cost will be half what I paid, plus exact shipping to you. A deal if you ask me, since he is a new figure.)
1x Master Sev & Yellow ARC Trooper

I may buy one of the Master Choi and one of the Palpatine sets at full price, so I have it in case it becomes HTF. The others (especially the ARCs) I don't have a strong desire to own. Not at full retail anyway.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I just need one of each and especially the ARCs.  I like those for some reason.

Someone at 'Scum claims they got someone at Target to pull them out case.

That's very possible - is he also on the West Coast?  Should be hitting your stores first, as usual.   :P

That's unusual.  Have any of you West Coasters been checking DPCIs?  I know a few of us in Minnesota have been checking regularly, but no sign of them in the stockrooms around here yet.

The O66 sets have a date they're to be put out, and I think they're just getting distributed from the warehouses now and will get put out then...  Not like basic crap without a set date, that flows West to East...

And yes, I can take the blame.  I'm a double knot spy working for Rebelscum now and reporting my finds to them.  Tis I who bought O66 in Pittsburgh...  I feel shame.

Actually, they're here but I've not tried getting them pulled.  Just checked like I usually do, and they are indeed here.  They're probably at your Target stores too, just not out.

My local store had these in the stockroom.  But the clerk that I came across in my quest was either dense or lazy.  You pick one.  I left that store empty handed.  But seeing how these got marked down last year, I'm willing to be patient with these.

Funny how I was at Target yesterday and I didn't check. I checked last week and there were none to be had.

Boy the quantities you guys are planning on buying of these things at makes me think there is a lot of disposable income on this board. There is either some really rich people around here or just really in debt.

Went to a target here in NJ and used the DCPI # trick. They brought me out a set, no problems.  ;D
