Ships at TRU
« on: July 21, 2003, 09:20 PM »
Today in Indy it is reported on another forum that the Trade Tank, Anakin's Starfighter, and Jedi Starfighter have been found along with the first series of 3-packs.

The hunt is on. :)

I've seen the AAT and Jedi Starfighter in several local Chicago TRU stores, but so far I haven't seen the Anakin Starfighter.  I'll have to check it out I guess.

Yep.  I've found the same here in N.O. at TRU and KB,  except for Anakin's Starfighter.

Tried looking for Anakin's ship today, but was unsuccessful at several different TRU stores.

Well throughout the day I stopped in at all four of my local TRUs.

- One had nothing buy an empty space. The stocker told me that yesterday they had some new ships.

- One had the Jedi Star Fighter and Trade Tank.

- One had nothing.

- The other one did not stock yet and told me to try tomorrow. The stocker said that there are new Star Wars toys.

I've only seen the blue Jedi Starfighter and AAT so far.  They ship in the same case, 3 of each per case.

I think Anakin's starfighter is in a later case assortment, along with the Geonosian fighter and Hailfire droid.

I cannot wait for those two ships to come out.  I'm having a very hard time trying to tell which one is going to be the better of the two.  They both look great!

Yeah so far I have only seen the Blue Jedi Fighter and Tank for the small vehicles and the new Gunship.

According to some on-line places the HailFire Droid and Geo Fighter are in shipment #2.

So I am not sure when the Anakin Fighter is really being released or if it has. Maybe it it will ship in a case all of its own.
I want Anni's Fighter.

Finally came across the Jedi Starfighter and Trade Fed Tank out here in So Cal last night...

Haven't heard of Ani's fighter being released yet though...

On a related note, are you people finding that your Jedi Starfighters appeared to have been opened and resealed (at the tape area)?  I noticed this on the one I was buying last night, and actually opened it up right in front of the cashier just to make sure nobody had performed the old "switcheroo" with the previous (red) Jedi Starfighter that's marked way down everywhere.  Fortunately, it was the blue version in the box - mint and complete.  So I'm figuring this ship was just one of those factory reseals.  Anyone else notice this on theirs?

Still no signs of the CW ships at ANY of the other stores besides TRU, right?

I'll have to check, but I wasn't planning on opening up my package.  That might just be a good enough reason for me to open mine up.  I'll keep you posted.

i saw the Trade Tank, and Blue Jedi Starfighter at a TRU. Paramus i think.
they were 21.95

an odd number too.. i would have expected 19.95.

i plan to get a tank or two when and if they go on sale.

I've seen them at a couple of KB's.

I haven't picked up the new Jedi Starfighter, nor have I checked out the several I've seen, but I've noticed the re-seal on two other Hasbro products -- all of the Imperial Forces 4-pk in the 3 TRU I go to and all of the black/blue Batmobile in at least 1 TRU.
