I thought you were smarter than that, Target.   :(

Now, Target, please don't try to charge $25-30 for it too or I'll be swimming in these at the local stores for months.   :-\

I was afraid that was going to happen.  When the hell is Target coming to Canada?   >:(

When Canada finally abandons Quebec and joins the USA.   ;)

Is this the same ship from the CW (non-animated) line?

It is a re-hashed ship (the Episode 2 Jedi Starfighter which has already been released 3 times - Saga Red, KB Exclusive w/Pilot Obi-Wan, and Clone Wars Green) that uses the paint job from the Anakin Clone Wars Ship:

You can see from the comparison picture below that while it is very similar to stuff that has been released before, it actually "new" in that this paint job has never been used on this model ship (but it was used on a different model ship).

In a way I am (was?) looking forward to this since I missed the CW Anakin ship and this is a reasonable fascimile.

It'll probably be $20 unless they pack in an exclusive Plo koon pilot that can actually fit in it.

That's what you'd figure, but with Target's current "let's charge a few bucks more because it's an exclusive" policy (Lava Vader = $13, Clone Trooper = $13), I wouldn't put it past them to hike up the cost a few ($5-10) bucks...  :-\

Jeff's right.

It'll be $25 w/out a figure, $30 with.

Its going to be overpriced w/o a doubt.  They even jacked up the figs w/cup just because the ROTS ones sold well.  The original trilogy ones sat around here forever, I bought them all at 2.48/each.  And I know yoda/boba/fett will sit for a while at 12.99.  One of my Targets has 12 of each, 2 weeks running.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

Forgive my short memory, but has anyone actually seen this on Target's shelves?  I reread the thread, but there's no mention of when it was supposed it hit stores, besides the original expected date of July (but that was before it was announced as an exclusive to Target).

Nope, not out yet.  Maybe another month or two, but you definitely haven't missed anything yet Jess...  ;)

Considering I just found Obi's Starfighter today, I could use a break before having to track down yet another one of these damned things.
