Bought it today.

Dumb question, but meaning you found it at Target?

EDIT: that answer is yes. My buddies just found them locally.

I really haven't displayed mine. That's the thing. They spend years at a time in boxes or tubs. I've done the photography thing twice and they've been exposed to light for a couple weeks at a time every couple of years, maybe. Many of my VOTC Scout Troopers have yellowed in the chest as well.

I have to admit that I feel like we could have done without a new DS Gunner sculpt. I am quite happy with the OTC version. They could have slapped that on a vintage card and I'd have been happier.

I hope Hasbro is working on the yellowing problem with the Stormtroopers. As you all I know, I have about 300 Stormtroopers from the first VOTC sculpt forward. I would say every VOTC Stormtrooper has yellowed in the torso (over 50.) Many of the follow-up variants of that sculpt have started, but haven't gotten quite as bad. I believe the Space Trooper version has remained pretty white, as well as the Luke and Han stormtroopers and the Sandtroopers I cleaned the "dirt" off of have been pretty good.

I spotted one of these in my local Walmart today.  Itís impressive to look at, and itís great to see something new on the shelf. But the price scanned at $79 even, so Iím going to hold off for a while.

I have a feeling we will see these clearance at some point.

That would be awesome as I aim to replace 8 of my 9. I can use my Shadows version as a wing leader, but this is pretty much the ultimate cockpit and I have to replace the outdated ones.

It worked out well for me to just order this case from EE. Adding one Death Trooper completes me for Waves 2 and 3, and I get the case to store them in. Win win!

Should have posted my other post here...

I found the two new 2-packs in a Walmart in VA while passing through on Friday - Rebolt & Hound and Han & Chewie.

On a side note, please move/remove if this is not appropriate; doing a little promotion for a indigogo project I think is cool...

If you're not familiar, this guy makes accessories/set pieces for 3.75 inch figures, mostly. Some 6 inch. Up until now, everything has been cast in resin, he's trying to move to plastic, thus the campaign. I've bought his Rebel sled and Imperial Computer consoles and I love them. Will be buying the Tantive IV and Imperial Walls at some point. For this, he's starting doing boxes, crates and landing bay lights.

Solo / Re: Target Solo 3.75" Vandor-1 Playset with Chewbacca

Has anyone opened one of these yet? Curious of reviews. Even I pick it up, I won't have anyl room to display it.

I love this set, in spite of having no idea who these characters are. It is weird that the set is still available. Perhaps Hasbro is adjusting quantities based on previous years? This might be a good omen for me given that SDCC changed it's professional criteria which has made me no longer eligible for a badge.

Very nearly a dream set. Too bad they're 5POA figs. Means I'll only buy one.

Interesting for sure. Glad they're doing something and hope they do well enough to explore bigger sets.

I f'd up on that one guys. Apologies. None of us could remember him on the spot.

I'm both cheering and screaming. Arguably my biggest want (search my post history!), exclusive to the worst retailer.
