I know no one has found these yet, but has any info come out on how much money each of these sets will be?

The news about the 5/1 endcap plan at TRU has me wondering if the TFU multi-packs will also end up on that endcap...?

Good theory! Maybe worth an inquiry upon my next TRU visit.  8)

I could see TRU also making a push to get the last wave of comic 2-packs on that endcap, too.    Those have shown up a little bit at a time at TRU, but they would definitely fit in with this whole collector endcap theme.

I would be ecstatic if TRU did a planned store display to highlight their exclusives (TFU packs and EU TLC wave) since it would mean I'd have a decent shot at picking them up.  I don't have a TRU close enough that I can stop during the week and right now, even taking a drive on a weekend is out unless I know it's going to be productive.

Fingers crossed.

It would be nice to have this come out all together in quantity at a known time for convenience of finding it, but not so much for my wallet. That's going to be tough all at once.

Ya this is kind of a big exclusive dip with w13 and if these box sets come out on 05/01, but it'll be nice to finally put the Legacy line to rest.   :)

You had to figure that some of these would leak out in advance of May 1st.  I've been checking over half a dozen TRU stores and so far no luck.  But then I'm pretty close to TRU's corporate headquarters, and the local stores are probably pretty concious of having someone from corporate just "stop by" only to see that they're not honoring the merchandising street dates.

I don't think corporate executives actually care enough to check out local stores even if they actually knew their was a case of toys that had a shelf date. That's someone a lot lower on the food chain's job if there was a position at all. I think store managers are pretty much left on their own as long as the store makes a profit. No one cares outside the store's stockboys.

Huh, I saw these yesterday at (I believe) the Puyallup, WA store.  I hit a couple TRUs looking for the new Iron Man Minimates and stopped to look at these sets not realizing they hadn't been out for a while.  Not much of anything shows up here anymore, so whenever I see something new to me, I figure it's old news to everybody else.  I didn't buy them, but what I noticed was that the translucent Stormtroopers in both sets looked to be the same, where I thought I'd seen pictures a while ago where one was lighter and one looked kind of smokey.

Put me in the camp happy to hear these are only $30...  I really expected higher than that.  $30, not so bad considering what you get.  I was wanting 2 of each set too, so that eases some financial pains I was expecting there too. 

Can't wait to get those and the EU figures out of the way.  Then a nice casual Summer not spending money on gas hunting for stuff.  I can relax, maybe put a little extra into the house or something.  I need a new computer too, so maybe 2010's the year for that to happen actually.

$30 is good. I just hope we can find them now.

$30 is a steal. I was expecting $45 or so. I'll still get one of each, but it definitely takes the sting out of the purchase. Now I only have to track these sets down.
