Ouch.  How much did you pay for it?  I'm sure it looks even cooler than the brown, but I would have a tough time customizing an expensive vehicle like that unless I had a spare.  You should post some pics!

yeah I know man

But what I did was took all of the parts that you have to put on it to assemble it, taped off some places I wanted to leave brown , took off the Canopy and the rear hatch and did it in a blue/ grey CIS livery.
I will post pics sometime, I havnt taken any pics yet.
Im also not the best customizer on the planet but its came out ok except one lil spot where I tried some fancy taping on the canopy to add a grey stripe down the middle so I fixed the fudged part with a "blaster mark"

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...

An update on Target and the MTT -

We got the Target 2012 Top Toys Catalog in the mail this weekend.  On page 38, it shows the MTT for $124.99 (with the $5 off coupon in the catalog) and specifically says ONLINE ONLY.

Also, if you check out the Target.com link that I referenced above, you will now see that it clearly says "not sold in stores" and no longer has the "find in store" search feature enabled.

I'm guessing both of those are pretty strong signs that Target has decided to dump their plans for a special endcap for this thing...  I have a few emails out to some Target contacts, we'll see if someone can verify that change.    :-\

Probably a good idea on their part. :)

Wal-Mart has had it out for a while, TRU will obvioulsy have theirs for a while unless by some miracle it's the hot toy of the season because it's not as widely available as past BFVehicles...  Which I doubt.

Interesting news though Jeff.  I find it kind of neat to witness it flailing about in Target's system.

Guess that means we won't see these on clearance then...bummer.  I've seen these start to pile up above the AF section at TRU but still nothing at the WM.

There's always Amazon I guess, if they have it.  Got my Rep Shuttle so cheap off them, plus free shipping, that I couldn't resist.  It was cheaper than a Class 2 vehicle at the time, right to my door free.

Plus WM clearances stuff (Got AT-TE clearenced there), and TRU may be forced to, to put out more silliness.

The Wal-Mart by my house has 12 of these.  I know they've sold at least 4 before they got in a big shipment.  I doubt these 12 will all sell at full price.  I'll keep an eye out after Christmas for them marked down.

Mine doesn't have 12 on the floor, but they have a lot.  So does my secondary WM, and one I don't get to often that I was at the other day.  They all had at least 4 except my primary store DID sell 1 it seems.

Just noticed Amazon sold out of these at the $129 price.  They are still available on Amazon but sold via BBTS and they are more expensive.

Just throwing this out there for those of you, like me, who are hoping Amazon gets a ton of these in stock and then slashes the crap out of the price as a "gold box deal" or whatever.

Yep... and as of today, from the display that had 12, they are down to 6-7.  This display is in a high traffic part of the store, which has to help.  My eyes almost popped out of my head when I saw they had sold a few more.  I walked around checking to see if they had moved some to a different area for more exposure, but it doesn't look to be the case.
