"Still?"  It only showed up around here about 3 weeks ago.  There are still stores in this area that never got them, and only two stores within 20 miles of here ever got the RC droids.   Target's screwing the pooch.

I keep forgetting I live in the land of Target.  Our Rancors/RC Droids hit over two months ago and they've just been sitting - wasting away, well not the RC Droids, but the Rancors have been.  I just wish WM was as agressive when it comes to clearance.  Most recent memory is one A-Wing that sat and sat at full price for six full months until someone finally picked it up. 

Anywho....

The TRU V-Wing and Hailfire Droid were $39.99 and they were just a fig and a vehicle that wasn't too much bigger than the Dewback.

But TRU doesn't have the buying power of Target and WM.

I cannot believe what I was just linked to...

There's a pile of people at Rebelscum that apparantly think this is fake.  I'm not kidding.  They're claiming the body is the POTF2 Dewback with a new head...  I'm sorta stunned at the decline in membership quality there anymore.  Did they all just jump into the hobby yesterday?  Sheesh....   :-\

Well, Rob said he found an A-Wing with a Brainiac, maybe someone took swapping to the extreme?   :P 

At first I was thinking that because I have a Dewback and a Sandtrooper this would be an easy pass, but since its a new design and a whole lot better than the previous I may revisit that decision depending on the price.

I guess they figure if the info doesn't get directly vomited out to them by RS, it has got to be fake.

RS is really losing their lead, they have missed a lot of great scoops, it's like their are too in bed with Hasbro and are being controlled.

How can anyone doubt that that's not real? You can clearly see that's not fake.

Yeah I have no clue...  A buddy of mine linked it to me in my email today, and I was kinda astonished.  It's clearly not re-used...  It's not the most high-res picture or anything, sure, but anyone who's had any time at all in the hobby can look at the pic and ascertain what's new in a glance on the Dewback itself.

Yeah, I think Rebelscum and Galactic Hunter are feeeling a bit gunshy about showing new, unofficial stuff.  Either that, or they're just giving Hasbro the opportunity to do it next week.  The way we're going here ar JD, there will be nothing new at ComiCon

I'm ok with that. Hasbro will just have the official unveiling. And they're shots will be much crisper. Besides, showing off the final product, you know all sorts of pics will be plastered all over collecting sites. So these little snippets are great to get our collector hearts pumping. Hasbro confirming these items will just be the icing for us.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

Nice dewback, ideal to build an army of sandtroopers with dewbacks (potf2+tlc)

Good shot of the Dewback from Comic-Con...

Looks impressive, a whole new sculpt, surprised Hasbro would do that.

Very cool, articulated ankles!

Two points to Jesse for picking out that gun.

Soooo nice... New gun, super-duper articulated Sandtrooper, and a cool new dewback. My wallet hates it, but I'm shooting for three of these.

This is an incredibly elaborate hoax to have Hasbro involved.
