2007 Exclusives - Which Are You Buying?
« on: November 19, 2007, 12:59 PM »
It looks like we're set for an avalanche of exclusives the last couple months of this year (not to mention more from the "basic" line).  This isn't an exhaustive list, but what I can remember off the top of my head, but which exclusives (if any) are you hoping/planning to pick up?

Target
TIE Bomber
ARC 170 (Clone Wars)
ARC 170 Battle Pack
AT-RT Battle Pack
Battle of Hoth Ultimate Battle Pack
Battle of Endor Ultimate Battle Pack
Jabba's Palace Galactic Heroes Pack
Death Star (X-Wing) Galactic Heroes Pack

Wal-Mart
Jabba's Band Battle Pack (Max Rebo Band)
Jabba's Band Battle Pack (Jabba's Dancers)
Comic Packs (Fett/DSD, Keller/Marine, Obi-Wan/Bail)
Cantina Galactic Heroes Pack 1
Cantina Galactic Heroes Pack 2

TRU
Battle of Hoth Galactic Heroes Pack
Battle of Naboo Galactic Heroes Pack
Y-Wing
TIE Interceptor (181st)
Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter w/Hyperspace Ring (2008?)

Online
EE 14 Figure Mandalorian/Elite Force Packs
7" Unleashed Trooper (Diamond)
Battlefront II Packs

I'm sure I'm missing a few, but how much of this stuff are you hoping to grab?  Here's my (tenative) list, depending on funds:

Target
TIE Bomber (missed earlier versions)
Battle of Hoth Ultimate Battle Pack
ARC 170 Battle Pack
Jabba's Palace Galactic Heroes Pack

Wal-Mart
Comic Pack (Fett/DSD and Keller/Marine)
Jabba's Palace (Max Rebo Band Set)

Maybes...

Battle of Endor Ultimate Battle Pack (if clearanced)
Jabba's Palace Battle Pack (Jabba's Dancers)
ARC 170 Fighter (Clone Wars)

I've already picked up the GH Hoth pack and Y-Wing from TRU, and the EE set should be on its way shortly as well.  Otherwise, its mostly Target stuff for me, and a couple things at WM.  Its going to be a crazy couple of months here for exclusives.

The only one I'm going to get is the TRU Y-Wing when they have another sale.  I'd like to get it for $30 or less (probably since it was $30 at one time  ;D)

Here's what I plan on getting:

Target
ARC 170 (Clone Wars)
ARC 170 Battle Pack X2
Battle of Hoth Ultimate Battle Pack (maybe-all I really want from this is the turret, so I may wait for a clearance. If I miss it, I'll live)

Wal-Mart
Comic Packs (Fett/DSD, Keller/Marine X5; I won't need 4 of the Keller's so they'll be up for trade/sale at cost)

TRU
TIE Interceptor (181st) eventually, not in a rush for this.
Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter w/Hyperspace Ring (2008?)

I don't do Galactic heroes and I have not picked up the Geonosis area set so far. I also plan on skipping the WM Jabba band sets.

Everything else looks like a go for me.

I'm tentatively interested in the following - but I'm done paying crap loads of money for the same stuff over and over again. 

I am with you there, the whole "repaint after repaint" is getting a tad expensive & tiresome. I am selling off all of my older AT-ST's & Speederbikes just to make room for the new ones from the Battle packs. Same goes for older figures when they get updated,I trade them off or sell them.

I am really on the fence with the ARC. I came across the AT-RT set today and in my opinion, it's the worst deco/toy/exclusive of any modern Hasbro Star Wars Toy I have ever seen. This was easier to pass than the Geo creature set at TRU.

ARC 170 (Clone Wars) don't have the first
AT-RT Battle Pack ditto
Battle of Hoth Ultimate Battle Pack

Wal-Mart
Comic Packs (Fett/DSD, Keller/Marine, Obi-Wan/Bail
