Now that I have my fill, these aren't too hard to find around here.

Lucky you Ant. I'm STILL needing this set. Plus the multiples I want for the tech and a cart. I've got no less than 6 deals for my extras, but can't fulfill them yet because I can't find the set at all.

I think Hasbro seriously underestimated the desire for this battle pack. I really hope there is a revision to the case assortment and they short pack the other one in favor of 2 Yavin sets.

Yeah thanks...no pressure or anything, right? LOL

FINALLY found one of these today at Wal-Mart (I believe others have found these at non-Target locations already nut this was the first I've heard of seen showing up elsewhere). Looks like they had gotten in one single case since there was 1 Yavin BP and 2 Jabbas. Haven't gotten to open it but just staring at it I can tell the only negative is Red Leader being short... but is it really that big a deal? Once the larger body becomes more circulated I'll just do a simple head swap.

Definitely would be interested in more Techs and another cart or two, which is enough to warrant getting a second set when I see it.

So are these sets still shipping? I've only seen one (which I snagged), and this was almost 3 months ago. I'd love to get at least one more but nobody seems to be stocking new Battle Packs. With Hasbro basically giving the heave ho to basically everything in white/blue packaging I'm wondering if I'll ever even see this great set again.

Last I saw there were a few sitting near me. I'd have picked them up but money has been very tight lately.

I still see them around at Targets now and again.  BPs haven't sold very well at certain Targets near me, but I doubt that has anything to do with them being priced at $26.50   ::)

Haven't seen this pack (or the CW Jabba, for that matter) in a long time.  Our local Target keeps stocking the Falcon Training Pack, the Dagobah/Jedi vs Sidious repacks, and every once in awhile the Endor pack (saw that one yesterday again).  The Bo'Maar Monastery pack can still be found once in awhile too.

The last three of these that I've seen at retail had the Tech swapped out for crap.  Brainiac was the latest one that I saw yesterday.

Yeah, I see the same thing on my end of town.  The $23.99 Targets are all sold out, yet the $26.39 Targets all seem to have plenty.   :P

I passed on ONE of these sets that I saw.  I've got 4 I think...  so basically I've seen only 5 total, anywhere.

THis is the kind of stuff that makes Hasbro's, "these aren't important enough to pack more to a case", frustrating.   :-\

If anyone wants to glance over my trade list and needs lots of clones, I'd trade well for this.  One or two would be awesome ;)

This looks like a great set. I hope I can find one out there; I only just heard about it. It's been out for what, 3 or 4 months? I'd love to add this and the new ladders to my set-up with Luke and his X-Wing.
