Awesome, loving the sticker. I'd rather not apply them in this case.

Wow - for $45 we get a Wampa Head Sticker?!?

At least with the "Lucky Lekku" Gunship that is printed/stamped on the mold and has a cool weathered look that you'd never get with a sticker.

Definitely going to space out buying this guy - perhaps make sure I get my MIB one now and then wait for sales/discounts/whatever closer to the holidays to pick up a second one - you know this puppy will be around for a while.

Does TRU have any other exclusives or vehicles coming out soon? If not then yeah, this thing will be around for a while. Heck, just the other day I saw more White TIEs and the STAP attack and Hoth Patrol battle packs. Not exactly running through those too quickly. Not to mention the fact that I can still easily pick up the Holo Grievous figure too.

I don't believe I've ever seen TRU clearance any Star Wars stuff ever. :-\

Actually, when TRU has a "sale" it's usually something like spend $X and get ABC for free. Like a buy-two-get-one-free kind of deal.

But that's kinda mute now - I just got TRU's "Biggest Toy Book Ever" and on the back of mine there were three coupons:

$10 off a purchase of $100 or more valid 10/26 - 11/30
$10 off a purchase of $100 or more valid 12/1 - 12/31
Free $10 Gift Card with a purchase of $75 or more valid 10/26 - 11/30

Since I also still need to pick up some Wave 1 Saga Legends to finish off that sub-line, I can always pick up one or two of them each time I make a purchase just to push me over the threshold to qualify, so for example...

Purchase #1:  Score two of the "Wampa" ARC-170 ($90) and throw in two Saga Legends figures ($16) as soon as I see the ARC exclusive - get $10 off that purchase. Since I need to get the figures anyway, as I see it that brings the ARCs down to $40 each instead of $45.

Purchase #2: Score one each of the V-Wing and Hailfire Droid exclusives (guessing $60 there), so throw in another two Saga Legends figures ($16) and use the other coupon that expires at the end of November to get a free $10 gift card. (Here I'm hoping that the stores will get those exclusives before the end of the November)

Purchase #3: Once December 1st rolls around, score my opener Hailfire Droid and V-Wing Repaints which again assuming the price is $30 each and I'm sure by that time I'll easily be able to score some new Comic 2-packs or the two battle packs that are just hitting now or anything else that may have hit like TLC Wave 4 or TCW Wave 3, etc... to bring that purchase up to anything over $110, so I can use the $10 gift card AND the $10 off coupon.

So it's not really a "sale" but it's $30 worth of savings that I can get if I spread the purchases around. That's all I meant.

Picked this one up. I kind of like those ships, though, they are huge.

Sent you a PM. I should be able to do that.

Great. Thanks for the stickers. I'll keep them around in case anyone wants them for customizing.
