TRU STAP w/Battledroid Deluxe
« on: December 29, 2009, 04:05 PM »
Out on the front page you can check out a picture we got of a STAP w/Battledroid that appears to be exclusive to Toys R Us.  It's being paired with a Speederbike w/Scout Trooper as well.

Expect both sets to be expensive! :)

QFT. I'm excited for a single STAP and BD, but I have to see better pics or look at this in person. From the pic above it looks... ******.

I like the deco, but the droid appears completely CW3D so I'm passing for sure.  Still be nice to have more CW deco STAP's to army build.   :-\  I'll just redeco E1 versions.

YEAH! This is marvelous!

I've never even heard a whisper of this STAP exclusive before...awesome alert! I can't tell from the picture, but I assume this is going to come with updated Paint Apps from the version included with the B'Omarr Monastery BP?

I wonder when TRU will have these up on their website...

And the darker deco I think, and the battledroid being a CW3D figure I think...  but yeah, otherwise identical.  :D  The E1 set was fairly bland.  The CW decoes are much nicer IMO, but the sets are going to be cost-prohibitive I'm afraid.

At first I though this was a movie item. Now that I know it's not, I can skip it.

It's a good crossover from the EPI version to the Blue markings CW version. I may just pick it up for that reason. Kinda of like an "Evolution" of the STAP deco.

It has the same deco as the Monastery STAP but the base color of the STAP itself is a different color - more like the EI version.

Well apparently this is out now, Galactic Hunter has confirmed. I had heard of the TLC offering being found so I figured this must be out too.

Both our local TRU's restock tomorrow morning so guess who will be there when doors open at 10am. :)

I found these last week.  Way overpriced.

Grr, I wanted one in this paint deco, but I'm not paying $20 for it. This needs to drop to about $12-14. Then I'd buy it.

Rats, I am hunting high and low for this thing to no avail! Our TRU's have not gotten a whiff of them.

I can live with the $20, although it does seem pretty weak.

Anyone know if this has a unique product code/UPC I can check for over the phone?
