I'd bet Leia ships in a case of 2 Leias and 1 each of the other 4, especially if there's a several month gap in shipping. That or a whole stinking case of her, in a brutal all-out shelfwarming assualt, bent on piling her high enough to block the figure pegs as well, thus preventing the need to EVER restock anything in the Star Wars section.

We're going to choke on that particular figure this summer between the glass and the OTC recard. But again, I really like the plastic glasses.  :)

Finally came across the Snowspeeder Luke and Anakin cup sets today.  Picked 'em both up, even though they're as boring and lame as the first sets.  I'm sure Leia will show up in another month or two.  The question is whether they'll actually put one final cup out for Ep. 3 next year.  I hope they do, just so there's a complete set of all 6 movies represented, but I'm honestly doubting it.  These will be warming the shelves en masse soon, so I'd be surprised if Target bites on another one next year.

Who knows, maybe they'll use this outlet to give us our first Ep. 3 preview figure next year...   8)

The Leia with cup is out! I picked one up today at Target. There were two of the Leias, Two Lukes, and one Anakin on the shelf.

Wow, that was fast! I thought the Leia wasn't due until late summer. Any differences from the Deluxe carded one?

Wow, that was fast!  Thanks for the tip David.  I'll have to keep me eyes out for that one.  Guess my month or two prediction was a little off...   :P

I still have Old Ben,and Mauly gathering nice coats of dust in my area stores.  One place is so bad they are stacked high enough to block the bottom row of figs on the pegs!  :o  ::)

The Leia is the same as the Deluxe Leia with Cannon. The only difference is that the color on the bikini is a lighter color. Other than that it looks the same to me.

No problem studying the bikini for you...  ::)

Anyways, I took a picture of all the Target Sets together. Yes I know they are still in their boxes. I do usually open up all my toys but right now I am not sure if I want to keep them so they will remained boxed for now. I did open up a second Luke set that I bought. He was a new/ newer type figure that I did not have have open.

Enjoy!


It is not the best picture but for a webcam it looks alright.

I know of two other people here in Indy that have also found the Leia sets at Targets.

There is one Flea Market who has four of the Leia set for $30.00 each. He says that they are rare and very hard to find. Yeah right! He is just trying to make a quick buck. I should of said something to him but I am not like that.

Thanks for the photo, I think it turned out fine.  I am going to keep mine in their boxes as I already have the figures loose and IMO, I think they look cool this way.  

I really hope we get one for E3 but I doubt it.

I concur that they look good this way too.  I plan on keeping mine that way and if I can pick up a second set, do so for loose glasses.  The figures are irrelevant to me.  

And I'm being an optimist about Ep III.  I think we'll see one due to the sheer inundation of product that's associated with the movie in theaters.  I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it's already made, title and all.

Checked Target this weekend, and all they had was a healthy stack of Maul and Obi-Wan.  I had originally planned on only buying the OT sets, but I know if they end up releasing an Episode III set down the road, I'll have wanted the other two prequel ones as well.  Well, not like I don't still have time to pick up the Maul one, it doesn't seem to be in short supply around here :)

Managed to pick up an Anakin cup set last night...

Pretty good overall.  Interesting to see that on the figure, the magnet in his hand is replaced with a plastic plug and his arm is the plastic-peg non-magnet version as well.

The cup is, well a pretty cool cup.

Just need to track down Luka and Leia now...
