Apparently cancelled/postponed... from Echo Base News

One item that was shown at San Diego Comic Con, but was oddly absent from the New York Comic Con, was the Battlefields of Naboo pack. Is this set still slated for a January release?
 
This exclusive pack was unable to find a retailer home for 2012.  But it's something we can keep on the back burner for the future.

That's...  eh, that feels alright.

It was interesting but the old Tarpals sucked.

I guess I am just a bit confused how a pack depicted as a "Target exclusive" in their slideshow ends up not find a retailer home....  say...  at Target?

Because Target decided to drop it, perhaps they are savy now and know that repacks dont move as fast as newly sculpted items?

Maybe Target did a little research and saw that it was a completely rehashed idea?  Perhaps they wanted something that had a little more effort put into it?

Saw this at Galactic Hunter. The battle pack made it to packaging stage or at least sample packaging stage.

They got the Battle Droids wrong, officer antenna's, no packs.

But hey, for $2000, we can overlook the little details.  :D

But it's got an exclusive Kaadu! That alone must be worth at least a grand!  ;)

I can just see someone buying this and then them showing up the next month at TJ Maxx.

I'd still like to see this hit retail... but for about $19.99.

Agreed - if it got this far, who's to say that it won't eventually be coming out - like timed to better coincide with the release of the MTT?

The only thing going against it is that it advertises those two dud Target 2-packs on the back. If the balance of those Target 2-packs ends up at TJMaxx/Ross, like the WalMart ones did, who knows? These could be sitting in a warehouse somewhere hoping that whoever takes the balance of Target's stock also takes these....
