Is this just a slightly different paint job of a normal TIE Pilot?

What is target's reset/street date on these?  Sunday?

Have we heard if that is the new price point across the board, or is that just the TRU exclusive overhead tax added in?  They haven't done this with their recent 6" exclusives.

I may eventually bite, but really don't have much interest in getting all different flavors of Clone Troopers, especially at $25 a pop.

Grabbed one this morning at my store in Minneapolis and cancelled my pre-order.  They also had most of the wave 1 6" 40th anniversary figures out, including a couple Darth Vader with display stand packages.

My brother and I had a bunch of his LPs back in the day.  Always loved annoying my parents listening to the Love Stinks album.  In particular "No Anchovies Please" and "Piss on the Wall".

I hope they ship the pre-orders soon.

The press releases have been vague about the sales channels for these items.

Anybody hear anything definitive on if these are normal retail items, or if they will only be available through certain sales channels?

I'd love to see Hasbro do what Lego does, and offer retailers exclusives, but also offer them through their direct ( / sales channels for those who cannot find them at retail.

I'm also sensing a bit of a theme here.  I wonder if there might be a PT era offering next?  Like Anakin on the Tatooine swoop bike from AOTC?

What would be your choice of figure and small vehicle for the PT?

Bongo with Jar Jar, or Qui-Gon, or Anakin?
Swoop bike with Anakin?
Speeder bike and Count Dooku?
Speeder bike and Maul?
Eopie with Padme or Anakin?
Obi-Wan and Varactyl?
General Grievous and Wheel Bike?
AOTC airspeeder and Anakin or Obi-Wan?

Not sure I can think of a clear choice.  A Bongo or Varactyl might be neat.  We don't have Grievous yet, so a wheel bike with him might be a good pair.

I just ordered a couple of skeleton warriors and passed on the rest.  Lots of cool stuff in there but I don't want to drop too much $$$ on this line if I can avoid it.

That white skeleton with armor looks awesome.  I checked out the site and looks like a few new releases since I last ordered.  Not sure if I'm ready to order another big lot, but if anyone is planning to order figures in the near future and would wouldn't mind tacking on one these armored skeletons for me, I'd love to nab one.

I just ordered yesterday.  I'll see if I can cancel and add another to my order for you.

That must not be to scale.  It doesn't look like you could fit Obi-Wan in the cockpit too, or have R2 and C-3PO sit on the back.

Very cool though.  I'll definitely pick this up for $60.

Have we received this paint scheme for Chopper before?  This seems different than the version I have.  More gray on the body of this one.

FYI. Target is selling the "Thrawn" book in stores. They don't typically get Star Wars books anymore. Nice not to get gouged at B&N

If anyone reads this, please post your thoughts.  My kids really like the Thrawn character in Rebels and I'm considering getting this for my 9-year old.

Oh man.  I didn't even realize they had another wave come out.  That skeleton warrior looks awesome and I'll have to make room for him next to his "naked" buddies.

I understand the desire to stay focused on sequel trilogy characters like Rey, but this just screams of shelf warmer, unless the run is limited (exclusive to a retailer).  If Scout Troopers and a Speeder Bike @ $40 sat, this is going to be a disaster.

I'm guessing a Landspeeder would be more than $50, but I would have much preferred a Sandtrooper and Dewback in the $40/$50 range.

That being said, I think this looks sharp and I'll definitely pick this up.
