I grabbed a few of these at Target a couple weeks ago.  The base is designed to fit on a (child's) finger to simulate flying around.  These ships remind me of metal versions of Micro Machines, same level of detail but a touch bigger.  Pretty cool.  I grabbed the Y-Wing, Snowspeeder and the Falcon.  They also had the Ghost and Slave-1 (both of which seem to be the pegwarmers so far).

Walmart.com has some rolled back to $3.97.  Free ship to store.  Not a bad price.  I believe the Falcon, Ghost are there plus another... Y-wing or snowspeeder.

Got Wave 2 of the Die Cast ships at Target earlier. Red 5 X-Wing (with open S-foils), Red 3 X-Wing (closed S-foils) and the TIE Fighter. There's also a Vulture Droid from ROTS in the wave.

All the WalMarts near here got a huge skid with both waves in it.  They dropped their price to $3.92 as well.

Anyone else collecting the Hot Wheels ships?  I bought my son the remaining ships he was missing for Christmas, and I just picked up the 2-pack with the Star Destroyer and Mon Cal frigate.  The only one that eludes me so far is the Rebels TIE which is in a 2-pack with the Ghost.  I even have the two versions of the snowspeeder (Luke's is packed in with a "playset").

Where did you find the Star Destroyer/ Mon Cal Frigate?

I only have a couple of these, but that sounds like a must have.

There are things in the universe that are simply and purely evil. A warrior does not seek to understand them, or to compromise with them. He seeks only to obliterate them.

I found it at TRU.  My son loves the ships more than he does action figures, so I have gone overboard with these for him.   :)  It is tough finding information on what is out, what to expect, etc.  Hasbro collectors have it good.  :)

Ordered the AT-At and Snowspeeder 2-Pk from Amazon as well as finally adding the Rebels TIE Fighter.  That 2Pk was going for ~$5 on Amazon.

Been continuing to pick up OT vehicles from this line... I passed on a LOT of TFA stuff on clearance recently. I need to snag the Rebel Blockade Runner (rereleased in the Rogue One line), AT-AT and the Luke Snowspeeder from that playset and I think that's it.

Was this Mandalorian ship easy to find at some point. I don't remember this at all. Now I'm wondering what else I missed. I see there was a rebels a-wing as well.

Not super hard to find but not exactly common either. There have been several ships I have never seen at retail (especially in the 2 packs) but I did see this one. That rebels A-Wing is A huge pegwarmer though as it was in the initial floor shippers when the R1 mercy hit last year.
