Nicklab, where exactly are you at that you saw them on the shelf? I've been searching for this since May.

I saw some of these this morning.  What is all the fuss about?   ???

Well I have to say that I have not seen a single one at any store in either Ohio, Michigan or Indiana since May.  But I only do toy runs twice a week.

I saw at least two sitting on a TRU shelf in Connecticutt this morning.  And I saw it quite a bit at KayBee when the ROTS line launched.

I keep telling you guys, they're all in Canada.  I left yet another behind today.  They disappear every so often, but I think they screwed up and put them all in trilogo packaging ;)

I found two (bought one) at KB Toys in Springfield VA on Saturday.  It was $29.99.  I've passed on them all until now.  They totally grew on me and I also lucked out and found a Target Clone Battle Pack on the shelf.   Scalpers really have Targets number as all they do is use the DCPI # and if YOU don't use it then you are SOL.  I've just about given up on the Stealth Trooper and it hasn't even come out yet.  I'm thinking about ordering it from overseas... :'(

Don't give up...  Keep plugging away.  I went the day the Target Clone was due to release and scored 2 that day so there's luck if you go immediately...  Just gotta be on the ball I guess.

I've heard tell that the Gunship was at KB Toys up here around Pittsburgh as well, and I don't believe it was overpriced compared to elsewhere.  So that's good news for people still hunting that thing down.

Last night I finally got around to putting the decals on and trying out the various missile shooting thingies. I wish they'd tweaked the decals since the blue clashes with the new olive-green/mustard trim.

For some reason I'm really delighted with the side doors that open at the touch of a button.

Great vehicle all around.

Greetings everyone! Long time stalker, 1st time poster. (I just don't have much time to actually dedicate to too many message boards) Thanks for the tip, I haven't seen one of these since Midnight Madness and all of those were smashed to hell and back. Here's hoping that these will be plentiful, I overheard a kid the other day searching for one at TRU and just thought to myself, good luck with that one, I search almost every other day and haven't had any luck yet.

Got one! Kay Bee Toys in Tuttle Mall in Dublin Ohio. They had two but when the associate got down the first one for me she dropped it on the corner of the ladder putting a fist size hole in the side of the box. I took the other one. :) Still one there though for someone who doesn't care that the box is dinged hard.

Hey, I almost bought that one with the damage on it.  Maybe I'll go back to tuttle and get it :P

When where you there? Either I just missed you or you were the only other guy in the store at the time I bought mine! It was my first stop on my way to Wally world and Best buy which neither of those stops did me any good. Still no twins figures, unleashed vaders were sold out (I'm glad my buddy at work picked me up one on his lunch break) and no chance of a clone 3 pack for the dvd release. I swear that box was cherry before she dropped. Almost made me want to cry :'( Good to see someone else local on here.

We had 10 hit one of our local TRU's today and the guy told me more were on the way.
