I can see that happening but apparently not in this case. All 9 at that TRU were re-sealed. I thought it might be an isolated incident, so I checked when I went to another TRU yesterday. The 4 there were also re-sealed. Same size tape, too.

Over-zealous quality assurance inspector at the factory?  Or maybe an insecure compulsive obsessive worker?

Hmmm. :P

I found the AAT yesterday at TRU as well, but I didn't get it because

A) I didn't feel like dropping down $20 for one toy
B) It looked tampered with because the box was resealed and it was shoved in there to the point of a buldging box.  

I didn't know there was a resealing phenomenon until I looked at this post.  Kinda weird.  Had that been the blue fighter, I probably would have bought it...

Yeah I have seen the new ships at TRU and now just last night at one of my KB stores along with the 12" Pig Guard. No Ties.

There are a few Targets in my area that have the new stuff along with ships in the stock rooms. They will not put them out though. Well, no they have been putting out a case of figures about every week. But not the ships or multipacks or anything like that.

I do not believe the post on another forum that the Anakin's Fighter is out. It is just like some collectors who post false info to get people hopes up.
I am thinking that Anakin's ship will come out along the same time as the Geo Ship and Hail Fire Droid. That will probably be when the Clone Wars Figures come out.


**UPDATE!!**
This early afternoon I went to one of my Targets. They moved the Star Wars section to the other side of the aisle! Behold they stocked the Re-Dux Gun Ship, Re-Dux Jedi Star Fighter, Re-packed Trade Tank and Wave #13 of figs.

I saw the Republic Gunship and the Jedi Starfighter last week. I may pick up a Starfighter, they look really nice and different from the other version. I'm going to pass on the Gunship.

Here's a breakdown of what the Clone Wars Starfighter and Trade Fed Tank cost at the different stores (I haven't seen the Republic Gunship yet though, so I can't comment on that one):

Target = $19.99
TRU = $21.99
KB = $24.99

So I'd try to hit up your local Targets if you want to save a few bucks on these two!  I originally bought mine at TRU since that's where I first saw them, but then returned them back to there when I found them both again for a couple bucks cheaper at Target.  Saved myself $4.33, I did!   :-*

Yep, Target prices are definitely the best on these.  

It really doesn't affect me, but I feel very sorry for the people that only have a Walmart in their town due to Walmart passing on Clone Wars stuff.  Stupid Walmart!!!

I've found this ship at both TRU and Target now, and it's $29.99 at both places - just like it was the previous time around.  If it shows up at KB, I'm sure it'll be a bit more...
