I was looking for this on my toy run this afternoon.  And there was no sign of this at any of the stores I hit, despite Clone Wars having a significant presence at almost every store I visited.

When exactly is this set hitting shelves? And, considering the prices for Battle Packs have taken a significant hike since 2007, would this set do well at retail? it's obviously very kid-centered, but it'll surely make its way to some collector's collections. But Battle Packs at some stores are shelf warmers.

I came across three of these sets yesterday and missed the Gunship Pods (seeing one loser who stalks every store in the area walk away with one.) I picked up one for the Trandosian despite me not collecting animated figures I really like him and he looked real enough to add to my collection. He will be a fat drunk in my Cantina.

With Willrow coming soon I am really digging all of the pot bellied figures in the line. They look great as ordinary unheroic characters to compliment dioramas.

Finally scored this set yesterday.  I was a little surprised to see TRU getting some new stock.

Around here (Central VA) TRU is the only retail outlet stocking those 2 new BP's. I haven't seen a single one show up at Target yet.

I really want to know what is up with the Rishi Moon Outpost Attack BP...that thing was due 8/7 and I haven't heard ANYTHING about it recently.

BTW, awesome forum...this is the third one I have joined in as many weeks and am psyched to be here!

Yeah out of all places TRU was the last place I expected to come across it....3 times.
