Not a purchase, but an observation - one of my Targets put out the peg hanging clone wars light sabers yesterday. Leaks anyone?

It kind of sucks every since I found my BMF I havent seen a thing(that is new) on the pegs. It is kind of depressing but at the same time I am hoping that will just mean more on the shelfs come July 26. My olny question (of course directed at CDN collectors) is how good has the quantity of figures been on the first day of release? I know we dont get MM but we are basically just getting opening hour madness(I think..) is there usually a lot of product or am I gonna end up getting there only to see 2 of each box put out on the shelfs :-\

I'm sure that in August through December you are going to get whatever you want in the quantity you want it, no matter what you see in July.  By September this **** will be all over the place and then some.

That's what I'm hoping for.

I expect to get most of what I want from the 7/26 release, but it will be a few weeks after that before we start seeing anything newer than that. So none of us should really have a hard time at finding any of this.

Saw this endcap at my Wal-mart today. Mostly re issuse stuff but Legacy non the less.




Hit another Wal-mart at 11pm one nite and they had a full pallet of the new legacy items, but nothing hit the shelfs

I sorta wish the V-Wing had been a snazzy repaint instead of a re-issue...  Love the ship, just would like a nicer paintjob on it I guess.

I noticed that too...yikes! I sure hope not.

Today I went to Target and entered the Legacy DPCIs into the price scanner. Sure enough, they were in the stockroom. I asked if they could bring anything out for me, and the man I asked said he would. He came out two minutes later and gave me the whole 'we don't want your money until July 26th' thing. For those of you who have heard about this happening but have not yet experienced it for yourselves, I can tell you YES...it is just as enjoyable as it sounds.  ::)

And I did NOT notice that...  Guess I just scanned to boxes.

Holy ****.  A 50% price hike?  Uh...  Seems more than a  tad excessive if that's the case.  Methinks I'll be getting one of each too, if that's the case, and passing on many, many repaints of the future.  Nix the V-Wing repaint suggestion too if they're gonna be $30.  Piss on it...  Hasbro/Retail are getting greedy if they're gonna spike prices that much.

Hope those vehicle prices are only at WalMart.  That photo makes me want to run the vehicle DCPI at Target and see what the price point is for the assault vehicles.  I really want the Homing Spider Droid and V-19, but $30 each?  Ouch.
