This ship landed at Target today. (Ha! Pun.)

I didn't pick it up, but I'm sure I will sometime.

Haven't been on the hunt for it yet... which in itself is a shock.  I'll look for it soon.

Got it today... noticed the same thing on R2D2 - thank God there's a sticker.  Whew!

I opened it while in my car  :D and man it's awesome!  Definitely better than the EP2 Jedi starfighter.

The Starfighter was all over the place yesterday at Targets in Oregon.

I've seen it. Wasn't really looking for it yet though. I'll get it before too long.

I picked one of these up last Friday, there were three on the shelves at our local Target.  I think it is a pretty nifty ship, although I haven't had time to open it get it all put together (stickers, etc.) quite yet.  The packaging is actually kind of eye catching to me.  Feels nice to basically be caught up now until April 2, unless I happen upon those colored CW clones...riiiight. :)

It's a very well built toy, sturdy and has a good solid feel to it. My son and I had fun putting all the blast effect stickers on it after putting the regular ones on. I was able to get my anakin secret ceremony in there by cutting the sides of his plastic tunic. I also have put various R2s in the socket, they go only about half way in but still looks OK. New R4 won't fit due to the cable things on his feet. Don't want to take a chance of messing them up.
The spring loaded wing launch does require a measure of pressure on the release to get them to open but I'd rather have that than wings that flip open on their own. I wasn't expecting to find this but's I'm glad I did.
And there's just something about having a box with Star Wars Revenge of the Sith on it alreday, makes my giddy with excitment  ;D

I agree - with the AOTC Jedi Starfighter, I never got one where the wings felt like they had securely locked in place, it was like if I breathed on it wrong the wings would pop off! My switch on Anakin's new fighter takes a considerable amount of pressure to get the wings to pop open.

Definitely a nice sturdy toy with a lot of play value, IMHO.

Yeah, this vehicle rocks.  I would give Hasbro an A+ on this one.

I picked this vehicle up this weekend.

It's really neat. I got my Secret Ceremony Anakin in there without any surgery, but I'm waiting patiently for a Pilot Anakin. I kind of wish it would have been packed with the vehicle, but then it would have been a really crappy figure.

I don't like that the R2 socket is almost in the middle of the ship. The ship would have looked tighter without it, but that's LFL's design flaw, at least IMO.
