Anything with a line through it I don't want.

The other stuff is price dependent.  I won't be ripped off for any of it, so if it's all way above average retail prices for a similar item, then I guess Hasbro has lost Dressel!

Does that TIE Interceptor have an ejector seat?

I'm pretty sure yes.

Thanks for posting that Jeff.  Man, that's a lot of stuff.  I'm glad I'm not trying to get all of it - it would almost be enough to just keep up with the exclusives, let alone the mainline stuff that is coming out.

I wish you hadn't posted this because it is so true and it makes me want to cry a little. :'(

I'm pretty sure yes.

It has that and the new cockpit (as well as the one piece canopy that was added recently). I am really looking forward to this one as it's the definitive Tie Interceptor. I think I will be ditching my 181st Tie, I got rid of my POTJ one, I like a consistent look to my fleet.

Jeff- I take it by the lack of a DPCI for the Target Clone builder sets that we don't know that yet?

Correct - no DPCI yet for those sets (no confirmed one anyway).

Here's what I hope to definitely get (if I can find it):

Target
September
- Wedge Antilles' X-Wing Starfighter (087-06-0629) pic
October
- Star Wars Geonosis Arena 2-Packs (087-06-0634) pic 1, pic 2, pic 3

Wal-Mart
- Walmart Comic Packs Wave 4 pic
- Legacy Evolutions 3-Packs pic
- AT-ST w/Driver pic
November
- Dewback w/Sandtrooper pic

TRU
September
- GH Cinema Scenes (Purchase of the Droids & Kamino Troopers)

The new TIE Interceptor (TRU) is also tempting, but it will really depend on what the budget allows at the time.  I do have the POTJ version, and don't necessarily have room for another, but the upgrade does seem pretty spiffy.  I'm not sure about the various CW battle packs (Target) and 2 packs (WM).  I'll likely pass on them, but we'll see.  There is more than enough the way it is to try and pick up.  If nothing else, the Dewback is my top priority, followed by the AT-ST and GH Purchase of the Droids pack, and probably Wedge's fighter.

The Tlc Dewback is a very accurate toy, it has swivel feet and claws, sculpted scales, and of course the sand trroper is nice.

Its green color will probably let Hasbro made a brown variant (like potf2īs), Who knows, maybe a grey one?

There really are a ton of exclusives at the end of the year, this year... Lucky for me I think I'm passing on most of them. Unfortunately it looks like I'll be stuck trying to track down a lot of them at Wal-Mart, which sucked enough before the Toy Department got downsized. ::)


Target
  September
    - Wedge Antilles' X-Wing Starfighter (087-06-0629) pic - I'm kind of on the fence on this one. I really just want Wedge and the Droid. But the repainted X-Wing would be nice. I still am waiting for a scale version though. I'll wait and see on this.

  October
   -  Star Wars Geonosis Arena 2-Packs (087-06-0634) pic 1, pic 2, pic 3 - Maybe I'd grad some on clearance, or if I really like them when i see them in person, but I don't plan on it.

Wal-Mart
  August
    - Legacy Collection Droid Factory 2-Packs pic 1, pic 2 - Just picked up the Corran Horn set, the $17 killed that Dark trooper for me.

  September
    - Walmart Comic Packs Wave 4 pic - I'll pick up the pilots, and at least one set of the Commandos, and then pass on the third one.
    - Legacy Evolutions 3-Packs pic - I should have 10 TIE pilots coming via a trade. I want several of the Rebel Pilot set, maybe a few of the commandos, and possibly a few more TIE pilots. I really only want the OT era stuff from these sets.

  October
    - AT-ST w/Driver pic - I'm down for 1-3.

  November
    - Dewback w/Sandtrooper pic - Again, 1-3 will do for me.

TRU
    October
     - TIE Interceptor pic I'll probably grab 1 of these.

I saw some of them here locally over the weekend.  If you needed, I could pick you up a set of what was there evenflow.  Full price, even though they're marked with clearance stickers (love those rollbacks ::) ).

Are all of the figures in the "Legacy Collection "Clone Trooper Squad" Box Set" straight repacks?
