I preordered them all during the BOGO sale. Originally I was only gonna gt thr TIE and JSF, but I thought what the heck, I'll just count the others as free.

I should've done the same thing, but only ordered the TIE and JSF.  Feeling not so good now.   :(

I got my Anakin JSF and TIE Fighter Ultras via UPS this afternoon.  Both came in very nice packaging condition.  The JSF's paint job is quite nice.  It's got a bunch of battle wear stripe markings on it.  In the package, I'm not that impressed with the TIE.  I'm not sure what it is whether it's the detail or the way the ship looks in the packaging, it looks kinda boring...

I wish I'd gone with the BOGO sale as well, but was too lazy.  I've only been picking up the OT ships anyway, so it's not quite as bad.  I guess I didn't post in here (just on the main news page), but I found all four a couple weeks ago up at the Thousand Oaks TRU.  Oddly enough, the Santa Clarita TRU has had several TIEs and JSFs sitting around all week, but no X-Wings or Gunships.  Weird.

I wonder if this is really the end of the line for the Ultra Titaniums, or if there's another exclusive or two still in the pipeline?  I think I recall hearing this was it for them, which I guess would be fine with me, especially at their ridiculous $20 - $25 price point, when I already bought them all for $10 in plastic years ago.  I do like the added heft of the Titanium, but not for 100% or more added in price.

This was a pretty nice looking wave to end on though.  Red 3 is a bit blah, but the other three ships look real sharp.

I saw them all at TRU in Jersey ... I passed on the X-Wing and Tie....

Havimg the first X-wing really kept me from spending the loot....

As for the TIE... it just looked boring... so I passed for now.

But the Gunship and the JSF look great. The JSF details are jus perfect. I am happy with these two.

I picked up all four last week.  Is there any difference on the TRU X-Wing vs. the WM X-Wing (besides the packaging?)

Picked up the Ultra Clone Wars Gunship today, so that makes 3 out of the 4.  I didn't pick up the X-Wing even though it was available.  The nose guns on the gunship are nowhere close to being straight.  The right one is bent backwards because it's forced right up against the top of the base.  The left one is better because there's more room for the gun since the ship is leaning towards it's right.  Hopefully, the nose guns will straighten out after I remove the ship from the packaging and display case.

These pics were in an RS thread showing the paint differences between the Red 3 and Red 5 X-Wings.

Thanks for the tip, Rune. I just ran over there and grabbed a Snowspeeder and Slave I for $8 each and Clone Trooper and IG-88 for $5 each!

I also got C-3P0 and Grievous last week for $8 each! I found them at a store called T.J.Maxx, so if anyone has one of those in your area, you might want to check.

I went to a Dollar General store and found an AT-AT and a painted IG-88.  These are holes in my titanium collection and am very glad to have filled them at the discounted price.   ;D

Since this thread hasn't been bumped up since last Fall, I don't know if anyone cares - but I just noticed that HTS has their Titanium Ultras on clearance for $7.99 each.  I have to admit I was slightly tempted, but I'll probably just stick with the Falcon I picked up at Target for around $5.  They make nice display pieces with the plastic cases.  Just for info, they have these in stock:  Millennium Falcon, Vader's TIE, Slave 1, Snowspeeder, AT-AT, ARC 170, and Tri Droid.
