I finally picked up another A-Wing to open and man, it is small! Easier to squeeze into an existing display, but a bit disappointing. Glad I only paid $21 for this one, Walmart already had them on clearance at my local store.

I do love this Hera figure though. Much better than the first one.

I can't believe the A-wing was never stocked at Target.

In fact nearly all of the distribution for Rogue One vehicles has been a bit of a disaster.  My vehicles Festivus airing of grievances (didn't we used to have a thread for this?):
  • A-wing never showed up at Target (had to buy at TRU)
  • Never saw anything from the Imperial Speeder bike assortment at Target (had to buy at TRU).  I think because they're so backed up with TFA vehicles.
  • AT-ACT didn't see limited retail distribution until mid-December.  Now on steep clearance.

The TIE Striker and U-Wing were easy to come by at Target though.  I don't have easy access to Wal-Mart to know if they did a decent job stocking the Rogue One vehicles or not.

I love vehicles and thought all of these were solid releases.  Although I'm afraid this lousy distribution (and lousy sales) will only perpetuate Hasbro's thought that vehicles are a waste of their effort.

Loaded up on some cheap A-wings tonight...$15 is too good to pass up. Added three more to the fleet, maybe more to come. Also grabbed an Ezra with speeder bike for $9 for good measure.

If that imperial speeder bike set ever hits clearance, look out!

The Imperial set has been $15 here in Iowa. Tons of them at Wally.

I found a couple at Kroger tonight on clearance for $12.49.  :)

Walmart also had a bunch in their clearance section but they were still full price. Waiting game has begun...

I did find a couple of Ezra and speeder bike sets marked down to $4.50 at a different Wally. Grabbed those up right away.

Still $9 at the local Walmart, but I bought one at that price.  That's practically getting the speeder for free these days.
