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.

Me too. Had to use the hot water trick on the visor and handle bars as they were super warped but they are pretty now.

Did you just have to boil and it popped back or did you boil and have to move it back?  My scouts are all bent up and haven't tried this yet.

I just ran some scalding tap water and submerged the head for about 2 minutes and it went back into shape without having to physically reshape it. Same for the handle bars.

That's what I was hoping.  Sometimes physically reshaping doesn't go as well.  Thanks Jay!

After looking closer at the pics, I'm impressed by the paint apps on the Shadow Squadron.  It would have been easy for them to just do straight black across the board, but the use of dark blues and silvers is pretty cool.

Hasbro's pic with idealized lighting, but I'm hoping to find my own at Target soon:

Happened to pick one of these up in the middle of the afternoon yesterday. Almost overlooked it sitting on the bottom shelf of the end cap. Very cool purchase.

Did you get yours for $50?  That seems like a pretty good price (the regular Scout and bike sell for $49.99 at my local Target in Canada).

I spotted these yesterday too. Dunno about everywhere else but these are NOT in the usual Star Wars section, but they have a special endcap for the Christmas exclusives. It had this set, the Marvel Legends set, a Dwayne Johnson WWE figure, some Minecraft stuff, etc.

The set looks nice (really nice), but I'm passing for now. I'd rather snag the regular Speeder Bike first.

That should be where they are in every store. That's the holiday plan-o-gram. Like I said, almost overlooked it myself.

Are these on sale at some stores now?

I wish I lived in the US. These sets always cost ridiculous money when they get to the UK market
