Good luck man!  Kinda cool to get a shot at this thing.  Would have been nice if it was bundled with that yellow ship too, but beggers can't be choosers.

No luck for me either, and I didn't even see where they would have space for these things unless they threw them on an endcap or something. They do have a truck of new stuff arriving overnight so it might be worth a trip over again in the morning just in case.

I was at the Times Square TRU in NYC earlier today.  No sign of these at the flagship store, either.

Reported combos so far, apparently all the cases aren't the same. I'm guessing there's at least two different cases.

1x Kit Fisto and Anakin Skywalker Jedi starfighters.
1x Republic AV-7 Cannon and Obi-Wan Jedi starfighter.
1x Anakin Skywalker Jedi starfighter and Mandalorian shuttle

Xanadu Blood and Jedi Starfighter (blue)
Droid Gunship and V-19 Torrent
AV-7 Mobile Cannon and Obi Wan’s Jedi Starfighter


Having passed up Kit's starfighter for like $13 last january... I will skip that one. Sad that there's one combo that sans Jedi Fighter. Though I don't own any of those vehicles, so it's all new to me. Maybe the pairings aren't set in stone. Time will tell.

After market prices on the Mando Transport might take a dip, but then TRU Express stores got some hard to find GI JOE 25th series vehicles one year and most of those still go for decent money online.  Never saw them. *grumble*wanted a stinger and an arctic hiss*grumble*

So are these showing up at TRU Express only or the regular stores too?

I picked up a Mando Shuttle/Anakin JSF combo set from a regular TRU store today. These sets are probably not for MIB/MOC collectors, as both vehicles are taped together with heavy duty tape and the barcodes are covered with stickers, making it very easy to tear the boxes. Here are some pics showing how the vehicles are bundled and how/where damage can happen:

Nice score Greg!  Can you post the receipt code or upc used?  I asked around at my local TRU today, but no one could even find it in the system.

Thanks man. Here's the number from the receipt: 653569817062. Hopefully that helps you out!

I've seen a few of the shrink wrapped vehicle 2-packs in stores.  But so far no Mando shuttles.

Picked up Mando Shuttle today, coupled with the Anakin JSF which is nice since I had passed on the CW version until now. My box was crushed to **** though.  :P

The Mando and CW Cannon were both found in Pittsburgh area as well...  I'd really like to find both but I'm much more into finding the Cannon set I think.

I passed on all those JSF's and would customize one anyway if I got it, so I hope to find these sets this week maybe.
