Given the way TRU has been arbitrarily jacking up the prices on stuff recently, I wouldn't be surprised if these are closer to 30 bucks once they actually show up in stores.  My local store has raised the prices on practically every Hasbro SW item over the last couple of weeks, and while I'm hoping that it's just a temporary holiday cash grab, my overwhelming cynicism doesn't fill me with any hope that they'll actually drop said prices once the holidays are over.

Oh, and in the "pipe dream" department, if anyone has an extra TIE Pilot from either of these sets once they hit, keep me in mind.  I need one to pilot the WM TIE Bomber, and since Hasbro steadfastly refuses to put out a carded version in either the Vintage or Saga Legends line, I figure it wouldn't hurt to ask here. :)

Doc, I won't need the extra TIE pilot, so you can have one of mine when I find them.

They actually have a buy 2 get the 3rd free promo on almost all SW stuff this week, so not a glitch.  Too bad the shipping isn't free, but still a great deal for $25 items.  I ordered both sets and a spare of #2 (Grizz set).

Any chance these could be shipping sooner than 2/11?

The only reason I ask is because I was just checking the account I used to charge the purchase and I saw the charge from ToysRUs.com.

Anyone else who's ordered see the same thing?

Mine hasn't shown up yet, but I just ordered today.

Are the TIE pilots in both sets the same?  The picture looks the same, but the names are different unless I'm not reading this right.   ???

I lucked upon these at my local TRU today (I'm in Canada, so they have arrived a little early).  A fantastic deal for 3 pilots and an astromech at $29.99CDN.  Loose pics to come too.

With them hitting canada, I think it's very likely they could be showing in the US far earlier than 2/11 then.

Thanks Jesse! :)

Really nice looking group of figures, I'm looking forward to these showing up in my area. I hope these sell really well so we can see some different theme sets in the future.

Everything looks very nice!  Shame our group couldn't work out a group buy, but hopefully TRU doesn't jack up the price to $40+ per set.   ::)

If they do, they're keeping them.  I'm not paying scalper prices for the privelege of shopping in their overpriced store.
