I've got the solution for the stand issue;)



Careful you probably just gave some EU writer an idea. "Imperial Speed Walkers! Brilliant!"

Reminds me of the God-awful "TIE Crawler" design...



Seems to me that thing would shear itself in half in about five seconds.

Got around to opening up one of these tonight. Only complaint I have is the ridiculous warpage on the handlebars. I'm sure that's an easy fix with a boil/freeze though.

Anyone still finding these? I found one, and I've been calling/visiting the TRU's around me pretty much every day with no luck.

I found 2 at a single store, and I haven't seen them since.  I'm glad I picked up both!

I think TRU is waiting for all their Star Wars sales to be over before they put these back on the shelves.  They're exclusives and you'll just have to wait until they decide to put more out when you'll have to buy them at full price.  [/end conspiracy theory]

Honestly, as much as I'd like to get them on sale, I'll buy 'em at full price...I just want like two more.

It sucks that TRU is full of crappy exclusives like the pod racer sets, while this is nowhere to be found.

That is true.  Even at full price, these things are still a deal.

Ours just got here this week, so I imagine there are a couple still around. We have a new store opening in about two weeks so I have high (ok, wildly unrealistic) hopes of a freshly stocked SW section swimming in all the latest offerings. We'll see.

Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.

Just got an email notification, they're back in stock at toysrus.com. They still have the BOGO-50% deal going on.

Awesome!

I got 4 so that I'd get free shipping and the deal.  Probably won't keep them all, but it's nice to get another exclusive out of the way.  Exclusive... I believe everything I need to finish out this year is an exclusive... Kmart 2 packs, Jocasta Nu, last vintage wave.

Once you open one, you might just keep all four. What's better than one, awesome speeder bike? Four of them.

Plus, the trooper is highly articulated, so there's so many options for posing him. This was really a home run by Hasbro. The only downside was the exclusivity. I hope they repack it for a while.
