Found mine yesterday. Pretty cool set. The box is oddly designed - it's so tall and flat - but unique. I love the Ewoks that came with it. Hopefully they do more pieces like this.

Yeah I've seen a few gripes that these 3 sets aren't a great value but nice figures with nice accessories?  These are a steal compared to TBS or Mission Series or Legends really.

These are a great value considering anyone of these figures would for $10 by itself.

Just managed to get an in-store order in for this one... hopefully when I get there they will magically have the Scanning Crew set on the shelves.  There's nothing more inconvenient for me than K-Mart exclusives.

There hasn't been a Kmart in this part of Texas for over a decade, so I feel you pain.

Yeah, I remember that... it's definitely easier here than there, but if you go at the wrong times it's an hour round trip with traffic.

If you need, I can try to pick up extras whenever I go back for the scanning crew set.

This thing REALLY launches those rocks, which are rubber...  like, not even vinyl.  They're rubber, like slightly more rigid super balls from the bubblegum machine...  They bounce nice, but man, this thing will launch them hard.  Cats/dogs beware.

It's kind of amazing that these are consistently showing as in stock at stores across town 40 miles away, but at the two stores close, not a sign.

And, as a follow-up, I ran to that store anyway and picked up this set.

How can this be in stock at a certain k-mart store but when you go there it is no where to be found. In fact this k-mart doesn't even have Star Wars shelf space. If I buy it online and pick it up at that store, does that mean they kept it hidden in the back for some scalper friend?

It's in the back, or stolen.  If you buy site-to-store they'll dig it out of the back for you.  Better than asking them to do so at the customer service desk where, much like Target, they won't want to do it for you most likely.

It came back on their web site again. This time I did a store pickup and they magically had it at customer server. Still no where to be found or even tagged in the toy section. They must have these just for web site store pickup only.
