can anyone please confirm that the anakin figure is EXACTLY the same as the #2 regular release anakin besides the addition of the headgear? if it is the same i will probably pass on this. any help would be much appreciated.


The Anakin I received with the ship has lighter hair and it is noticeable.  Anyone else notice this?

The $30 price tag is a bit too much for me.  Not that it matters since I am on SW merchandise lockdown for a few months.  Maybe it will go on clearence later?

What, like the Jedi Council packs, Naboo packs, OTC Falcon and the Dodonna wave that are still pegwarming at full price?

Agreed, TRU typically does not Clearance stuff (especially exclusives)

When it does clearance, typically it goes really fast.  But TRU has been very slow to do this as ruthlessly as Target.

Same here, our local TRU has just a gob of OTC Falcons, still sitting at $55 or so.  If they went on a big clearance, I'd consider picking one up, but not at that price.

I'm sorry for you guys then b/c in my area they do clearance stuff.  Granted they do it a lot slower than Target and perhaps even walmart but OTC Falcons are already at $40.

I got the 12" Sandtrooper and Dewback for $20 (granted more than a year later but what is the hurry?).  The 12" luke and Taun Taun for $30.  Both the Imperial forces 4-pack and the pit of carkoon 4-pack, I got for 7.98.  I got the 12" Leia w/Han in Carbonite for $20.  :oWere those not exclusives?

Even though the jedi scenes and the geonosis war room scenes were not exclusives, I got those 4 that came out in Saga packaging for 7.98 each.  The OTC ones are still sitting there at full price but give them time...

I could go on and on but I don't need too.
Good luck,
Gatillo

Keep an eye on TRU.com for clearances, as they tend to do things a lot more frequently (and a lot quicker) than the actual retail stores these days.  The last time I was in a TRU (last November, I kid you not), they still had those POC (one letter away from POS!) four packs with the SB cannon at full price; one of my friends told me they STILL haven't clearanced them out.

TRU.com, however, has them down to 8 bucks.  I've gotten more than a few things from TRU.com for cheap (Leia Boussh for 14 dollars, 12" Geonosian for 10 bucks, 12" scale E1 Watto for about 7 bucks I think) so keep an eye on them in the coming months.  I have a feeling that Anakin's Starfighter will be in the 15 dollar range by the time August rolls around.

(and if they'd clearance that stupid Naboo 4-pack, I could get the Tarpals and Kaadu and pass along the three army builders to the nice people here at JD!)

Does anyone have these kicking around still, or have they gone the way of the dinosaur?

I found it at TRU.com for anyone that's still needing one, $29.99.

A short while ago in this very thread, yours truly said this:

I'm going to pass on this one completely, as two Jedi Starfighters are enough for me.

About three weeks after the film was released, I ended up not passing on it.  After seeing the film several times, I thought, "You know, I like that color scheme the more I look at it."  I told myself though that the only way I would buy it would be if I actually walked into a TRU and saw it on a shelf, and I had the money to get it at the time.  Well, two days later, I made a road trip to a nearby theater to watch ROTS and what was about two blocks away?  TRU.  And what did I buy?  Yep, the last Starfighter on the shelves.

I am growing really fond of the JSF design after having seen the film and playing with admiring the three toys, and since I have now made an "If it's not in the films, I don't want any part of it" edict with my own vehicle collecting, I am actually looking forward to see if the Obi-Wan Starfighter is the blue version he takes to Utapau, as that color scheme is cool too.   ;D  Now, if they could only do the hyperdrive rings...

On a semi-related note, I plan on taking control of the entire east coast with my growing armada of toy Jedi Starfighters from Episodes II and III later this fall.  I figure that with four of each style, I should be able to overtake South Carolina with little to no difficulty or resistance.   :D

What, you mean like this one, Michael?  :P  It just went up over at YodasNews.
