I'm with you guys, in that I would have much preferred to get this on the shelves at Walmart.  That way, I could pick the one with the best paint apps.  But this is not my world, I just live here.  So, I guess I'll be ordering this set online.  I only want the two clone troopers, so I will gladly sell/trade the Wolffe.

Did I just pay 20$ a piece for two clone repaints and 2 chew toys for my dog???

But it still feels good to buy something new!

Are we that starved for new product?

So the local drug dealer starts selling draino. We are so hooked that we need to buy the draino because its new and that makes us feel good that we bought something new! I think if Hasbro put a can of dog **** on the shelf, label it Star Wars and charged $40, we would buy it because it's NEW.

Not only that, a few website people would post articles online saying how it was good for the hobby/toy line/kids.  ;)

well, I just found out something odd.  Walmart.com has the Spiderman gift set for sale online but I am not finding the other 2 sets even though I am reading that others have found them on there.  I will keep looking...

here is the spiderman set:  http://www.walmart.com/ip/The-Amazing-Spider-Man-Comic-Series-Ultimate-Gift-Set/21129615

If there were any differences, I'd say that that Hasbro's image looks to have a grayer look to the deco whereas the carded figure was more blue. I guess we'll only know when these actually hit retail.

Looks like my initial observation was correct. Sandtroopers has posted loose images of this set and Wolffe does appear to be less dirty and the armor flashes look to be grayer than its basic carded release.

You can pay $40 for it and get it from BBTS right now!   :o


Me, I preordered this set from HTS along with other things so I was eligible for the free shipping and I got 20% off via the HOLIDAY2012 coupon.

$24 for this set full of repaints with poor articulation and waiting is a lot better than $40 + shipping + now

I can wait   ;D

Yeah, I agree with you guys, I have been planning all along to pick this up at HTS when they run one of their inevitable holiday sales offering free shipping, etc. Seeing as how this is the only Clone Wars toy I'll be buying for the rest of the year, no rush.

This is now up for order on Target.com and is listed as In Stock:

http://www.target.com/p/star-wars-104th-battalion-wolf-pack-clone-troopers-ultimate-gift-set/-/A-14123611?ref=tgt_adv_xasd0001&AFID=Performics_BFAds_0004ce65a4772bd50aec07a3040039a2&LNM=Primary%20Banner#?lnk

I went ahead and bought one...total came to $36.86 which was cheaper than BBTS or HTS. Free shipping too if you have a red card.

I kinda wanted to wait and pick one up off HTS when they run one of those holiday free shipping deals, but who knows if it will even be in stock then. For an extra $6, I didn't feel the need to wait.

Thanks for the tip on Target, McMetal. 

It will save me a couple bucks to order from Target.com (thanks red card!), so I guess I'll be cancelling my HTS order and going with Target instead...

I received this today, and was overall very impressed with the item itself as well as my initial experience ordering from Target.com. Item was carefully packed, with no defects, and arrived quickly with a confirmation email to boot. Very pleased.

I actually am more excited seeing this in person than I felt previously. Plo is a snoozer but the other clones have really cool decos and even Wolffe is noticeably altered from the single carded version. Moreso than I expected.

I would definitely have picked up an extra 1-2 of these sets when they hit the inevitable in-store clearances, but I don't know if they'll ever get low enough online to justify that indulgence.

Oh, and I'm officially 100% done with this line for the year. For stuff I "need" anyway. Yay!
