I caved on this earlier this week as well, Jeff. Given that my retail options are limited to a few Wal-Marts, a single Target, and one TRU, and since each WM only got 2, I figured I may as well bite the bullet. It wasn't worth the 130 bucks by a longshot (and will probably cost me more as I try to get regular Battle Droids to fill out the rack instead of the statues included), but all in all, it is a pretty fun toy. I think the timing of it was a huge mistake, what with TPM 3D pretty much disappearing quickly at the box office 8 months before it was released, the overall apathy toward TPM from the general public, and the horrible state at retail in general with SW this year making many people wonder if there were even new SW toys being released.
Toys R Us applying their infamous "Lego Tax" to everything these days isn't helping things either, but given how many of this year's "new" items are in the "see them once and they disappear completely" category, I figured I'd better buy it now and regret it temporarily than not buy it and regret not buying it if/when I never saw it again, clearance or otherwise, in 2013. After all, TRU is the only retailer that seems to be getting it in large numbers, and they're not exactly known for clearancing things out on a timely basis.
