Nice find Michael.  I'm not asking for help, but I'm sure as rain that I'll never see any of these exclusives in my neck of the woods.

Someone over at RS found the Jabba sets in Maryland. Priced at $25.88 each.

Nice to know they're at least shipping.  I can pass on these, but I really want the comic 2-packs.

Nice to hear these are finally starting to show up somewhere.  I'm in the same boat as pretty much everyone else here.  I've had the most trouble finding WM exclusives out of the "Big 3", and to be honest at this point, I doubt I'd go in our local store if it wasn't for a SW exclusive or "emergency formula/diaper run" :).  I'm hoping to get the Rebo Band set (probably just the band one), since I missed the earlier release - so hopefully they won't be too tough to find.  I'd like to get the comic packs too, but I'm worried how difficult they might be to get.  On a side note, I stopped in at WM a week or so ago just to see if they had anything new, and they had a "middle of the aisle" display just jam packed full of Galactic Heroes 2 packs.  They were some older ones the way it looked, but were in special holiday display holders the way it looked.  I suppose they would be a great stocking stuffer for the kiddos though.

Found the Galactic Heroes cinema scenes today.  But I keep on thinking WHERE ARE THE COMIC 2-PACKS?!?!?

Saw the Jabba Band sets today. Big pass for me. Nice way for Hasbro to get the completists to blow $50 bucks.  ::)

It's also a nice way for them to put some stuff out for the kids and new collectors who weren't around back when most of these things were originally released, eight or nine years ago.   ::)

No, you're right.  It's a terrible thing for Hasbro to have done.  Forcing people to purchase these, even if they already own everything but the packaging. . .  Shame on you, Hasbro!  Shame on you!

I personally thank hasbro for this and the TRU set for causing me to want to break the completist habit.

Luckily I have never had the completist habit. I am an opener so that helps. These sets are cool for those that need them. For me it is an easy pass.
