That was a weird one.  I saw AW's at 2 stores I viist, but not the other 4 or 5...  Yet at the one, they got so many that it lingered for a long time.

That always happens with me too. I have 3 WM's near me, and there's always at least one that gets the exclusives and at least one that doesn't. Usually it's a 2:1 ratio with 2 of the 3 getting the exclusives. I think the A-Wing and the Max Rebo band sets were the only exclusives that none of the stores ever received. 2007 was weird for exclusive distribution.

Even though I now have x2 AT-ATs, x2 SS, x2 CC and all of the Vintage line already in hand I will now have to make some runs on 8/1 to Wal-Mart to pick this bad boy up. I will be buying 2 for sure. Like Scott this was the best surprise thus far!

Probably my favorite set from this fall, but still not big on Oola.  For some reason I still like the Kenner version.

I really don't expect this thing to hit on 08/01 especially since it's WM, but I want this now!  ROTJ was the first SW flick I saw (in theatre) and I always loved this fat bastard.  Glad he finally got a much needed upgrade after all these years.  Hope to see him soon!

I'm actually hoping that he's on the planogram for the Star Wars section reset - so he actually will be there on day one...

But you're probably right iFett, he'll hit two or three weeks out.

A vintage box would have been cool for this. . .

I was just thinking the same thing. I think they should do vintage boxes for everything from now on.

I agree, this vintage packaging stuff looks amazing.  I hope we see it continue, at least for the life of "The Vintage Collection" if nothing else.  I'm wondering if we won't see another round of exclusive "repackages" next year, if this year's crop does well.

IL has also had sightings on this set. It should hit any day.

Truly shocking.  I highly doubt I'll find him this weekend, but I guess I'll add WM to my list.  Was sure this would be a month or so out.
