TRU - Nothing
Wal-Mart - Nothing.
Target - INC!!!! I am up to 3 now with 17 to go... :P

It looks like they had 4 cases of the Darth Malgus case based on the number of CW Anakins, #93 Vaders and TPM figs on the pegs. The pegs have been literally empty with not a single figure for months, not even TPM. I have not went hunting in months so it was nice my first fluke run was successful as all 3 stores were on the same round minuets apart. I wish I could have snagged 2 INC's to have an even 4 but 1 is better than none!

Great pic! I agree it's so Battlefront bland. They need to give him all of that jazz in the picture above. Hey, at least it is a new figure!  I hope to see Vintage decos on the other packs like an all black Han, orange obi, Vint color boba, upgraded Tusken arms, a new Lobot and a gray INC to start. I will buy the sets then.

Look closley, it's new:
- No glaring center part line on the figure.
- The center band that encircles the droid is very square. The old one is rounder and fatter.
- No side button for the action feature.
- The center face is also more squared out.
- At the bottom portion of the old PD there was a sculpted scribe line, the new one does not have it.

Looks like we are getting a new Power droid mold! It's all new for sure, no button, no part line down the middle and it looks "boxier". I am surprised they did not deco him in Vintage colors for the set but maybe he is coming on a VC card in original colors. I am in for this set, can't wait to see what other two sets they got coming.

If it's paint really nice I would happily pay $80-$100 for the Slave 1. I am stoked of the OT attention and will support these like no tomorrow. I want to help send a message, keep the focus on OT an you will get a positve response.

I want a Sailbarge one day along with a retooled Skiff.

TRU has a great line up of exclusives all OT related except the Maul sabe which i can care less about. I am in for all of them including x4 Speederbike sets.

Like Jeff said $35 is a steal for these sets. I sold my old POTJ Teebo and Porkins after seeing the leaked pics so I really welcome these two back in the fold. If Hasbro made sets and exclusives this solid all year this line would not have the probelms it does now. I hope SDCC restores confidence in the brand, it needs a good dose of positve buzz.

I agree with every point Chewie has made. If the product they are carrying is not moving would would any retailer reorder?

The old important $20 price point became $25, now it's $29.99. I think this pricepoint is doomed or will be very limited, it will become and exclusive for retailers. (I am so pissed I missed out on preording the Naboo fighter. I know I will be paying a premium.)

Hasbro has not adapted at all to the current retail enviornment. I get the need to reship some existing tooling to help pay for new tooling and appeal to kids but what the hell were they thing with ROTS Obi-Wan Starfighter, ROTS AT-## and the V-torrent. Obi-Wans ship still sells well, the other 2 have rotted immensley. They should have went with the Republic cannon or Mando ship in place of one of those 2. I think that would have had good appeal and help the sales for new product. 2 old one new could have worked.

At this point in my collecting career I do not have the desire to hunt box stores like before, the time and expense of gas cannot be justified when 9.9 out of 10 times you find nothing in them anyway. I rather pay a few dollars more online than waste time/gas. I also rather pay more for high quality exclusive ships with great paint ops than sacraficing deco to meet "key" retail pricepoints. I have high hopes for all of the upcoming OT vehicles for TRU.

It boggles my mind why Hasbro will not repack this and the Republic Cannon but keeps reshipping vehicles everyone had enough like Anakins CW Starfighter and Obi-Wans ROTS Starfighter. I just cancelled the rest of my order since EE cancelled my order on this. I had a second Republic Cannon on preorder but I do not really need it. This looked like an interesting vehicle but I cant say I am heartbroken. I am really bored of CW and PT vehicles.

I hope they fix these issues in 2013.

GREAT NEWS! BBTS has it for $149.99!  :P
The most I will pay is $100.

Resculpt city:
 1. Obi-wan Kenobi
 2. Ki-Adi-mundi
 3. Plo-Koon
 4. Office Duel Palps
 5. Tarrful
 6. Sae-see Tiin
 7. Shaak Ti
 8. Cin Drallig
 9. Utapau Warrior
10. Nemodian Trooper

The INC should have also came with that new Mouse droid :D Bom is a real headscratcher. If they insisted ona Cantina patron this would have been a perfect time to get Ponda back out there. Bariss was a useless carry forward too. 501st Clone would have been nice replacemnt for her.

They really need to repack both figures ASAP...

I agree this could be the death of BMF's, this thing will make the Sailbarge truly sail away.
EP1 still sucks as a movie and at retail. After 12yrs EP1 product has not lost its mojo as a king of pegwarmer product. This big brown turd will be the Queen's Royal Starship 2.0.

It's amazing how bad Hasbro has botched so many aspects of this line up. Any experienced SW collector (10+yrs) could have made logical and kid friendly picks betters than Hasbro could have. I give them a pass on the price increase and tough retail enviornment but the latter should have made them more cautious.

I will still buy one of these to support th eline but it has to be a fair deal. This space taker is the only hope of every getting a Sailbarge and it looks less likley.

$159.99...ouch. Yeah, this is one that I will be waiting on the sidelines for when it goes on sale. This is the first time I am doing this. I regret jumping too quickly on the Attack shuttle. This thing is DOA, that's my gut feeling. I hate to say it and I hate to see it but this is a clear case of "I told you so."

Got my Tarkin cases too, nice overall.

-Tarkin is better in hand than the pics on the web, I was worried but I really like him. I do wish the green was toned down a notch.  The mouse Droid is really great and should be the standard Imp Officer accessory.

- Nikto really steals the spotlight for the wave. By far the best figure of the bunch. Very well executed, a must have.

Shae is nice but the unmasked head is really ugly. The figure looks better with the helmet head.

Starkiller is a nice figure with a ton of gear but I am really bored of the guy. He has had more than enough figures and I do not want to see him ever again. It's hard to get excited about him due to overkill. This is the best version of him but I really always like the Light side figure the best of all of the ones out there.

Oddball - A huge waste of tooling that could have went to more deserving figure to upgrade. They tooled up a new head, helmet (very nice), calves and ankles. Even the blaster looks updated again. They cheaped out on some deco detail on the chest area, they did not paint the grey like before. The grey color is very light compared to the other pilots so he does not match up. He looks...Odd.
No one was clamoring for this guy, it makes me question why they bothered to tool new parts for him. I can understand a staright redeco but seeing this makes me wonder why not upgrade a better character like Garindan (Upgrade arms and legs). i would love him on a Vintage card.

I also got the upgraded Barriss with better face deco and more solid blue saber in case. The case breakdown was nice but why repack Bom Vidam for the 3rd time and not the INC???
