So I hit up a Walmart earlier today looking for TCW Wave 2. (Utter failure - none are on the pegs here yet) One of the ones I hit was in the process of resetting. They had all new planograms up dated 8/9 showing the new SW section layout. No new figs, but there was a case of the new vehicles and the newest BP's out.

Weirdest thing though - they had a shelf tag for a SW vehicle listed for $59.97. I checked and the tag was dated 8/10, and the planogram confirmed there was some sort of designated space for a new vehicle, right next to the AT-AT.

I cannot fathom what they would stick there though - there is nothing on the horizon that I can think of at that price, unless they are planning to reship some ARC's or Y-Wings, but I've heard nothing about that.

Needless to say, I'll be checking back there this weekend out of sheer curiosity.

That's for the RC Hailfire Droid...  at least that't the case at the Walmart near me.

Duh...of course! Thanks Jeff, I already bought this thing so it's completely off my radar.

For the first time in my SW career I have decided to pass on most upcoming cw/prequel vehicles. This is one I will make an exception for. I have zero interest in the Hyena Bomber, AT-AP repaint, Blue Tank repaint, RC Hailfire Droid, Xandu Blood, Tri Droid repaint, Swampseeder, all Jedi Starfighters and 75% of the mini rigs. I am on the fence with the Trade Tank and Droid Gunship most likely I will buy those. I am very down with the Jedi Speeder. With room being an ever increasing issue I have to really pick and choose, I hit a phase where the uninteresting is no interesting to me. I would love a Lars Landspeeder next.

I'm just about the same as you. I'll get the Jedi Speeder and Droid gunship. Also will get ONE Swampspeeder. All the others you mentioned I'll be passing on though. Besides just not having the room, I don't have the need or desire for those vehicles.

Couldn't find any relevant individual threads so I figured it would be best to post this here:

Apparently the Xanadu Blood and Plo Koon's Starfighter have been spotted at a brick and mortar TRU out west, as per Yakface.

My local stores did not get these in with this week's trucks, but they have 3 trucks coming in next week so odds are good we'll seen these soon. I hope!

Back on the Hunt!
