Thanks Jeff, I am going to try this at a few locations after work and will report back later tonight.

Be sure to call first to save yourself the trip (and the frustration).  ;)

Ha ha, not to worry...I was completely successful at scoring these on my first attempt at the local Target on my way home from work. They had 4 tucked away in "Stockroom A" and I was able to Jedi Mind Trick them into bringing me a fresh, shiny, pristine copy of each new BP.

Kudos to all for the suggestions on this, I wouldn't have had any inkling to try at this point otherwise.

Using the Jedi Mind trick, I was able to score these this morning before going to work.

I get to cross two more items off of the "Still Need to Get" list!

Man, it's time I learn how to do the Mind Trick - I need to catch up on my BP collecting, and my Targets are barely getting any new ones!

OK, so I picked up these sets today.  After looking at the Ryloth box set a bit closer, I realized in my box there were no guns for Waxer's holsters.   ???

So, my question - did I get a dud or is this a cheap-out like the McQ box sets where they didn't include them?  If they did include them in your set, where where they packed - in the holsters or in a separate baggie?

On the ones I got today they were tapped in a little baggie next to his feet....

Ugh, that's what I was afraid of hearing.  This would be the second time in two weeks I ended up with a toy missing accessories.   ::)

I'm surprised the poses of the figgures while in the packaging are so neutral - Hasbro usually puts them in the boxes to look like they're fighting. But the figures in the Ambush at Abregado pack are just standing there in the box.  ???



The 2 troopers are just looking out. The droid is the only one in action. Maybe the clones and Plo decided one droid isn't worth the energy?

I think the droid is supposed to be on the outside of the ship, although they couldn't get the perspective right in the package.

I'll have to go home and check for Waxer's guns now..I did not notice one way or the other after initial inspection. Good catch.
