I still haven't seen one at retail yet.  I must be doing something wrong.

These are definitely not hitting every store yet. Only one Wal-Mart here has them.

That's so sad it's funny.  My WM hasn't sold one yet.  To be honest the retailers and Hasbro both deserve to choke on this.

The distribution of this has been so bizarre in my area. Only two out of I think five super Wal-Marts in the area have this. One store actually sold both that they stocked back in August, but they recently put out three more so I wouldn't be surprised to see the toy on clearance in after Christmas. I'm sure if they shipped just a couple to every store they would sell thru fine, but stocking up on an overpriced toy at limited locations seems like a recipe for disaster.

Just speculation, but I can see TRU having a 50% off sale and selling this for 90 dollars. Still not low enough to get me to buy, but I might think about it if we have crazy cyber Monday deals like the shuttle at Amazon last year. Having it 50% off and under 100 buck might encourage Christmas mom shoppers to pull the trigger though.

I would probably bite at $90.  Just cant see paying over $100 for it though.

Did they forget or just decide not to stock something that is profit negative?

I thought someone, somewhere, reported it being found at Target...  There should be a DPCI floating somewhere though, if they are getting it.

The only things Target is stocking this year are the Vintage 3 packs and the Darth Maul Returns set. You guys obviously missed the memo.  :P

Target is definitely carrying the MTT.  It's In-Stock at Target.com right now and it has an active DPCI - 087-06-0846 Star Wars Droid Carrier Vehicle $129.99

The last batch of Target intel* said this would be a holiday endcap item and not every store would be getting them.  If you want to know if your store will be carrying it, jump on that Target link above and click the "find in store" button.   "Out of Stock" means it's coming to your store eventually; "not sold at this store" means it's not going to be sold there (duh :P).

* this was as of Celebration VI - plans can and do change I suppose...

I saw this for the first time today (at TRU), at $180.  I'm sure they will be flying off the shelves at that price.  I'm sure they will have some sort of sale and/or coupon as Christmas approaches, but wow, that is a lot for what it is.  There are still AT-ATs sitting at our store for less than that, and that's a vehicle that most to all people know or want.
