Thank you Scott. Delivered to the door for the same price as tru in store. I was about to leave to look for Castas at my alternate tru. You saved me an hour and a half and seven bucks in gas.

Let me echo TheSon's sentiments - thank you Scott - one less headache of having to chase product...

In stock now over at Hasbrotoyshop

DISC10 for 10% off

I just saw that...they actually have a listing up for the mini Y-Wing too, but it says Out of Stock. I wonder if it was ever really in stock? Did I somehow miss that? I feel like I just checked HTS over the weekend and saw nothing new.

Yeah, I missed out on the mini Y-Wing, too.  I'm sure it'll show some time soon.

There hasn't been a deluxe vehicle hard to find yet, and I doubt the price hike's going to change that.  I'm going to wait it out I guess for WM or Target.

Normally I would agree - but with the 10% discount, it ended up working out where they were less than $16.99 each. Considering that TRU has them for $19.99 - it was almost a $20 savings for me in the long run...

Hey McMetal - don't feel bad, I placed my order less than 10 minutes after Scott's post, and the Mini Y-Wing was already out of stock by then. So if it was in stock it was for a pretty short period of time.

Where is the Boba Fett on Speeder Bike and Obi-Wan and Attack Shuttle, though? I thought they were in Wave 1 of this assortment - or did things change after Toy Fair?

I'm guessing they changed the assortments.  It still doesn't account for how some of these are $18.99 and others are $19.99 at TRU.

Like...right now?  8)

It is listed as In Stock again at HTS, I just picked one up along with the RC Republic Fighter Tank.

Thanks for the promo code!

Looks like the line got kinda rebooted? Wonder why the shake-up. More specifically, I wonder if these got canned or not.

Did I miss the memo?  Hasbro included a weapon-swapping gimmick here with standardized holes and pegs for weapons.  You can take the guns off the Scout Speeder and slap them on the Y-Wing Scout Bomber.  I had no idea.  It's a lot like the G.I. Joe Sound Attack/Transformers Energon weapons and Mini-Cons thing but they don't activate anything, it's just a "power-up" thing.  The Y-Wing box doesn't even  mention it, and it's just a tiny bullet point on the Scout Speeder.  I'm surprised they didn't brand it with some goofy name, include spare guns with basic carded figures, and play it up like they did MechTech on Transformers.

...admittedly it isn't as cool as MechTech but it's a missed opportunity to say "buy another thing like this and you can swap their guns."  That's actually a nice feature.  Why not exploit it?

As I tweeted to you earlier Adam, it like the Centurions line from the 80s with their swappable weapons, jetpacks and launchers.

The tru receipts give an insight into the prices. The 18.99 are sw deluxe fig & vehicle. 19.99 are sw rapid strike vehicle. My assumption is that it comes down to data entry, some of the sku's were given the old description/price and when they created a new label a price hike just HAD to go with it. I would assume that all of the remaining new vehicles will be 19.99. If they ever make it to the shelves.

It seems the Y-WIng is now shippin gas well, in a revision case.

I've still not gotten the Republic Speeder thing (I really want a few of those) or seen anything but the Separatist thing, which I passed on.  Granted, nobody but TRU has put these out anywhere locally...

I found the Y Wing today, along with the rest.  This part of the Hasbro line is on fire.  The Y Wing is a great little toy, and the opportunity to add new characters like Castas and Warthog is appreciated.
