Or this just means I'll have to get two Turbo Tanks.   :D

I made that mistake with the AT-TE - partially because I found one on clearance.  One for animated clones and the other for movie.  I hope that I don't repeat that mistake this year.

Looks like these are coming a little earlier than Christmas if SWShop's shipping estimate holds true (which often times don't). They say it ships in April and are taking pre-orders now.

Or maybe SWShop didn't get the memo...  the other places that put it up with a April/May release date have since pushed it back to Fall:

It might not be accurate, but BBTS has this up for preorder, and say they expect it to arrive in April.

EE is saying May.

It seems that BBTS and EE have changed the release dates to August/September respectively.

WOOHOO!

Scored this today at a mom & pop shop.  I was happier about handing them the $99.99 than a big box store like WalMart or Target.  And the box is REALLY heavy.

Surprised that you found it there before Target or WM have it - nice find!

I love Mom and Pop shops, but they usually charge a lot more.  Maybe this thing wil be 79.00/ 89.00 at a big box?

That store is actually competitive on pricing.  Basic Figures there are $7.99.  And they also had the new ARC-170 for $49.99.  That's was very nice to see after all of the griping around the community about the price point of the deluxe vehicle line.

Interesting that that store got these, and cool. I'm sure they're still months away from the stores yet, though.

I noticed that this is currently listed as "in stock" over at BBTS, for $120.
