Wow yeah.  At that I won't buy any.  I hope thats just TRU being TRU and those wind up 20 everywhere else.  Otherwise 2013 just got way cheaper for me.  I planned on buying at least 3 till I saw that price.

Damn...I was thinking of stopping by TRU earlier today and blew it off thinking there was no reason to check. I'd happily pick up the AT-RT and Dropship sets and return them later if/when I can find them cheaper.

I wonder if this is just a random oops or if more of these will start popping up around the country this coming week...

I picked up Yoda's Jedi Attack Cruiser and the Republic Attack Dropship in 501st deco tonight.  I passed on the MTT Droid Fighter and 501st AT-RT for now.

The Yoda fighter is supposed to fit regular figures too, correct? If so, along with the Build a Droid Astro option, that really puts the Class II Jedi Starfighter to shame

I haven't opened mine yet, but it's VERY tiny.  But I really don't think a regular sized figure is going to fit in that cockpit.

I read somewhere that there's a "booster seat" for Yoda that can be removed to fit regular figures

These are $23.99 at toyrus.com.

So basically the brick and mortar store was ripping local customers off. Charming.

Actually, Toys R Us charges more in certain stores. I have seen the 2012 deluxe in a store for $23.99.

Just got some TRU rewards bucks - $15 worth - I might get three sets that would bring them down to $18.99 each and they would also ship for free - so that's not too bad...

Looks like Target is planning on sticking to the $20 MSRP:

Looks like Wave 1 is finally up for Pre-Order at EE with a January ship date.

I found 3 of the 4 today at TRU, priced at $23.99. Of course the one set missing was the one I wanted - the AT-RT repaint. I did pick up the Dropship repaint though, and it turns out another local collector stashed one for me at a different store today, so I will be heading out to pick that up shortly.

Those are the only 2 I wanted from the set, hoping I can return the one I bought earlier and then re-buy it in tandem with the at-rt set thereby qualifying for the BOGOHO promotion.

Update: I did and was able to get a mintier box for the Dropship as well. So I ended up paying about $18 each for them plus tax after the BOGOHO deal. I'm good with that. I don't think I need an opener for either of these, so back to waiting for new figures...

Saw all but the AT-RT at two TRUs this week too. Passed for now.

Got the Yoda JSFs and MTT Droid Fighters I wanted.

REALLY upset that the peg hole for the dome on the Yoda JSF is bigger than the build-a-droid hole on all the droids. Rigged one of the two I got to open with a R2 Silver w/green dome using some electrical tape to "thicken" the peg.

The white w/black R2 body I got for the "spare" dome to make this a unique BAD is a snug fit but works and looks nice.

Just wish Hasbro had paid better attention and made it so all the other domes out there could be swapped into the socket. For me it ruins what would have been an awesome mini rig.
