So jealous! That's amazing....I went out searching for these today but there are none in stock yet anywhere locally based on the dpci look-up.

Found the Biker Scout w/ Speeder Bike set at Target today. They're having a BOGO 40% off sale on all toys this week, so was able to get 2 of these for $32 + tax each. Takes a bit of work to get the Scout on the bike properly, but once he's on it makes for a great display. Check the JD Facebook page for a photo ;)

Why is this sale not at every Target?!?  :P I am quite jealous of your haul and discount!  ;D

Now that's a deal!  Congrats Man!

Thanks JJ! It's a fun set. How you been, ping me sometime.

Greg - both stores in was at today had the same sale. I'd venture the other stores in the asrea are the same.

I picked up the Speederbike set yesterday.  Love it, but there are some disappointments to it:

1. The power cell on mine is not completely circular, as if the piece wasn't completely solid when someone set it down after taking it from the mold.
2. The tarp or sack that sits behind the Scout is too large. It also would have been cool if the straps holding it down were painted a different color to stand out more.
3. Because the tarp/sack is too large, the thrust flaps cannot be opened all the way. At best, they open to about 45%. I wish they could open up completely though for speed instead of 'cruising'.
4. The stand is nice and is design so that you can display the bike at three different heights. I tried the tallest first, but found it difficult to find a balance sweet spot. Also, the long one is thin towards the top that when I tried to adjust the speeders position, it would twist, so I feared snapping that leg off. I ended up using the shortest leg, since having the long and medium on the ground provided the best balance... and I'm happy with that since I'm only buying one of the bikes.

So what's the actual retail on the Speeder bike?

Ditto.  I forgot they were that much, but if you can find another $40 item they have a BOGO 40% on ALL TOYS this week.

I think it's at select stores.  I saw no kind of advertising regarding that... in the paper or in store.

It's definitely widespread in our area.  They had it at Midway, Chan, and Chaska with signs all over the place.

Scored my 6" Stormtrooper at long last.  Made a trade with a long time friend to get this one because to date I have STILL not seen a 6" TBS Stormtrooper in the wild.

Picked up another 6" Boba Fett @ TRU this morning, got them to price match the $17.99 online price. Looks like they got more of Wave 2 though, not Wave 4. No sign of anything else new there.

That's odd.  My local TRU also restocked with Wave 2 recently... no Boba, but was surprised to see Greedo and Leia when it was just 2 Hans there.  I guess Han needed a Greedo to hang with before the Showdown 2-pack showed up.

Friend of mine texted me he found the Deluxe sets at a Target across town this morning and stashed one for me. But when I got there to snag it, there was nothing.  :(

As a prideful collector it's hard to let that kind of karmic slap go quietly, so I trekked out to a remote Target way off my usual beaten path immediately afterwards and was able to get them to pull one for me from the back. Thank you, Toy Gods!  :D

Looking forward to opening this up tonight, I already cleared space on a new dedicated shelf in anticipation.
