Is the Mando on bike set out at retail yet?  That is the only one I haven't seen - and probably will get.

People have found this at TRU if I remember correctly.

I picked it up yesterday out of boredom. It's ok, the Mano can pass for a skinny real Mando. I think he Pirate Bike set is the best thus far, the figure I great and bike is very interesting.

I picked up the Mando w/Speederbike at Wal-Mart tonight...  Not shabby, but not the best value either, when compared to other items in this line.  The bike's kind of tiny is all.  I think it's neat, and would really have loved to pick up 3 of these, but only if they were priced lower.  I really find the "Deluxe" line less of a value for some reason.  It feels like it's a buttload of packaging, and just not much toy compared to price.  Maybe it's just this vehicle's smaller size makes me feel that wayt hough because I didn't feel such a gripe in me on the Cad Bane bike.

I passed on Obi's bike with the sidecar, but I may reverse that.  I figure if wave 2 ships much, that bike will be more easily available.

I also got this yesterday - it was the first time I saw it at retail.  I agree with everything Jesse said above in regards to price and overall value of this deluxe line.  So far I have picked up this set and the Bane set, and I will probably also pick up the Anakin set at some point too. 

But the value isn't really there for me.  I am not opening these and saving the receipts, waiting for a sale with a better price.  Target's price isnt terrible at $16, but when you have $17 and $18 at WM and TRU - that is just tiping the scale for me too much.  Probably because I remember just a couple years ago that MSRP on standard vehicles was $20.

New images of figures from the next round of Deluxe Figure w/Vehicle sets have surfaced...

Boil and the Tactical Droid

I love that Boil ARF Trooper deco...  I'll probably be picking that set up for the AT-RT alone, but I dig the figure a lot.

Target here raised them to $17.

They are too much for me. I recall the battle pack with 2 bikes and 2 figures for $20...then $25. Deluxe should be about $13. It's really absurd when TRU is asking $18 to $20 for a STAP or Speeder bike...when on the same aisle there's $25 battle packs with a speeder and 3 figures, and one (from years ago) with 2 STAPS and 3 figures.

Um - okay, I guess.

Looks like he has ball jointed hips which is a good thing - they should have given them to Obi-Wan for the BARC w/Sidecar Deluxe too, but whatever...

No doubt an immediate purchase for kids, but a definite "meh" for me. The only thing that attracts me somewhat to this are the ball-jointed hips.

I liked his deco in the series, but Hasbro's putting out a whole lot of the same in the deluxe veh/figure line so I think they should try to tread cautiously with that stuff.  The kiddies can only get so many before mommy/daddy say no.

Yeah, but come on...they named a Clone Trooper after YOU!  ;D You know you need 3 of these at least!

This WAS totally out of the blue. I agree it looks very similar to at least 2-3 other sets, but at least it's not a straight repack. I'm definitely down for one.

I'm just wondering what happened to the AT-RT with Boil. This was supposed to be part of Wave 3 too, but is now conspicuously absent from the BBTS listings.

Hey, it was long overdue, what can I say? :)  I probably won't be buying though.

Dang... these are now $19.58 at my local Target. I wouldn't buy them at $16 when they first started, and I definitely won't buy them at $20. :-\ For a mini-vehicle and an action figure, that's overpriced.
