I found these tonight at my WM, so be on the lookout.  $4.77.  Yep.  Bought me two sets (one to open).   :)

oh wow, didnt know they were the same price as the basic figs, thanks for reporting it!

Further proof that it's just plain gouging to charge more for exclusives.

I found these today and they were with the regular figures.  Taking a close look at these tells me these will not be "flying off the shelves".   I'm really glad I didn't get another Obi Pilot and never got the Bail figures since these are straight repacks w/ babies in their arms.  However, the packaging is really cool!

Can someone refresh my memory - do these come in the protective cases?

Nope, they are just hanging with all the other figures.  I found them behind some Vaders this morning.

No sign of these in the SoCal area today. Plenty of Chewbacca and Vader though...

To answer the "Protective Cases" question all the way I took a picture.

The Separation of the Twins DO NOT fit in the collector cases for ROTS (Used the Target Trooper case).  :( However, they DO fit in the case that came with the Covert Ops Trooper.  :) See Pic:


The top corners of the card back don't fit into the ROTS collector case.

I picked up a set at a local Walmart about an hour ago.  There were three sets of those figures in a long box of 12 figures. Tarkin, Count Dooku, red Royal Guard and three other odd figures fill out the box.

Went out tonight and scored a big fat ZERO! Anyone who has found or seen the case, do you have the case number so we know what case to look for?

But why of course! For a extra fee of $10 per set, you can get the twins extended edition . . . .  ;D

I found these tonight too, and I bought an Obi-Wan and Luke set. I was going to pick up the second set, but all the Bails had paint slop around the goatee, so I'm going to hold off and try to find a better looking Bail.

These are boxed in an assortment with red guards? That explains all of the red guard figures I saw tonight when I picked these up. I missed on the tarkin once again.

I didn't get a box number but the box itself was a long, narrow one that said "Exclusive" and basic figures on the side. If you see one of these boxes I'm sure you will know it.
