thx for sharing.  I didn't have time to go digging everywhere, but wanted to see what was up with this...  Not real sure that makes the MTT a whole lot better, but still kinda neat.

2 figs and a mini-rig?  $25-$30 ? 

Makes me wish they would have made that lil eu ship that sat in the Falcon's mandibles years back.  Any word on that for its re-release?

I'm in for the MTT, as soon as the Wal-Marts around here finally stock it.  I've been looking at empty shelf spaces for it for at least a week now.  I assume TRU will get these in later too?

Thanks Chewie.  I still find it odd that Target has no place for this thing unless it will be an unforseen holiday item?  I live in Minnesota.  I hate construction season...and winter, but snow is pretty to look at.

I came across 2 of these yesterday at one of my local WMs, and despite my original thoughts (below) was about to buy one 'til I noticed both boxes were completely crushed on one end, to the point that it made me worried about the contents inside potentially being jacked up.  After a bit of thought and consideration, I ultimately decided to leave them both, which I think was a pretty strong indication to myself that I'm still not overly concerned about coming across these again later.  Man, I'll be kicking myself if that's not the case, and I never come across one again!  But at least they're definitely starting to trickle out a little more now.  It was definitely much heavier than I was expecting.  I might do curls with this thing once I finally grab it.

I wouldn't worry about not being able to find one of these things...they are not likely to move at all until closer to the holidays. if then. The ones around here have been gathering dust since they were stocked.

Man, I'll be kicking myself if that's not the case, and I never come across one again!

Oh no!!!  The world is ending! 

Wait a minute...the MTT is a prequel vehicle, and you hate the prequels, right?   ???

These things are now officially shelf warming at several of our local WMs, as I suspected they might.  Now the question is how long 'til the clearance sales start, especially since they take up such a sizeable chunk of shelf space.

8 days to jump on that one?  You're losing your touch, FG.  But since I’ve already answered that question several times, I won't bother to do so again here.  How about instead of being a troll, you just go start a thread asking folks here why they collect prequel figures/toys if they generally dislike the prequels?  I know there’s quite a few in the same boat.  You can even use me as an example, if you’d like.  (Yes, I know you honestly don't care one iota how/what others here at JD collect, but please, feel free to play along.)

EDIT:  Here, I took the liberty and went ahead and got the ball rolling for you.  Feel free to work your magic in there now.

These are up on Amazon.com for $129.99.  I wonder what price they might drop to during the holiday season as other big items have typically done in the past....

I'm hoping epic price drops ala the shuttle...  I landed (no pun) that thing so cheap that even though I've still yet to find a real use for it, I couldn't pass it up at the time.
