I have yet to see this, the Droid Gunship, Droid Tri-Fighter or Plo Koon's JSF.

I'll keep an eye out for it, I saw you're looking for it.  I thought I'd seen it, but now I'm not sure if I'm misremembering.  I saw a Tri-Fighter once...  Never saw the Droid Gunship anywhere though.

Nope, it has not made it to retail yet, nor has the Tri-Fighter/HMP Wave even. Plo Koon's JSF came out with the Xanadu Blood and I only ever saw this at TRU.

I check HTS every day and the Turbo Speeder is not listed there yet either. Not even for Preorder.

It has not even been available at any of the major online retailers except as part of a larger case assortment, which is stupid expensive.

I'm jonesing for this thing too!

This is In Stock and available to order now from Hasbro Toy Shop!  ;D

I ordered one immediately, came to $34.71 with tax, shipping, etc. Wish I had a valid promo code but oh well.

I'm paying $10 over MSRP, but I just don't feel like waiting til late spring on this thing. Considering I bought the Droid Gunship and Tri-Fighter back in December and they have yet to show up at retail, I think it's a good call.

Even better if the thing actually shows up in pristine shape - I won't even have to exchange it.

Deep enough to buy every single Clone Wars toy they have ever made, or ever will make.  ;D

I got my shipping confirmation on this today. Should be here early next week.

I got this in the mail today from HTS. The package was freaking mint, much better condition than the Gunship or Tri-Fighter when they arrived.

I wish I could post a lot of details about what a sweet vehicle it is, because it does seem to have a lot of cool play functionality, but it's staying MISB.  ;D

I hear it has popped back up on HTS In Stock once or twice since the initial offering, so it might be worth keeping an eye out for.
