I caved on a Target 9pack for $35 for a refreshed Lando and darker FX-7. What a waste of packaging, if they do a second series I hope they include some newness in it.

I too picked up the 9 pack for $12 and change.  I wasn't planning on getting this set, but its pretty hard to pass up figures at $1.33 a piece...  They didn't have any AT-ATs.  They did have the CW Cade Bane and IG Droid for $3 something, Mini Muggs for $3 something and then a mess of non-SW stuff.

I was hoping to get one of those 9 packs on clearance as well, but they pretty much dried up once they hit the $35ish price here locally.  No sign of any AT-ATs anywhere around here, except maybe at TRU once in awhile.  WM and Target have been dried up for a bit now.  I'm wondering if the AT-AT may have been the best selling "big" vehicle yet.  The AT-TE did pretty well too, although they did hit the $50 price a few times at TRU as well if I remember right.  All the larger vehicles have done decently around here, but the AT-AT in particular seemed to sell really well, particularly at Christmas.

Target exclusives are pretty much long-gone except the multi-packs which I was hoping to get the fish guy on clearance.  All the rest is gone.

AT-AT's are a-plenty here yet.  Wal-Mart has a good many at any store I go to, Target usually has at least one on the shelves, TRU has a ton of them, and K-Mart restocked after they sold out.  Target and K-Mart were the only ones here that seemed to sell them briskly.  No clearances at Target on them that I've noticed though, but I've not been on a toy run for a little bit now really.

9-packs blew out at $35.  I think one local store put them to $24, but I never saw less than $35.  I'd have bought a few at $12.  If for the army builders alone and just give the rest away, haha.

Managed to find and buy a Wave 5 212th. Also found a Han, but  the package was too messed up, even for me.

getting aggravated here.  I keep looking at Target since people keep finding the AOTC wave there and all I see week after week is 8 ROTS troopers with yellow helmets and two 4-LOMs and 2 Dengars.

And when the heck is HTS going to throw some new SW stuff up for sale?
