Took a quick pass by Target to survey the TCW clearance offerings. No Deluxe vehicles to be found, but the BP's were marked down to $9.98 and the Shuttle was down to $39.98.

No sign of clearance prices on the old SOTDS figures, but I didn't scan them to confirm either.

Man, that poster jpg over at JTA is hella cool. Wish it made for a better screen saver. (too big for good res)

Ultimately though, another cruel tease because I already want ALL of those figures and at best we might get a Rako Hardeen and Cad Bane with new hat.  ::)

McMetal - that TRU store either wildly over-ordered or massively undersold the majority of these sets...I think it was just a rouge TRU.  See my pic in this thread from over a year ago.  That store still had just about as many sets from then just last month before they started the clearance.

Thanks man...that was my initial suspicion as well, I just didn't think individual stores were empowered to do that.

It's sad really, this would have sold through rapidly at a decent clearance price like the shuttle.

So...I gather some of the Minnesota peeps were finding these for $30 at their local TRU.

Has ANYONE else seen this price locally at all? I figured this would be all over the fan sites but I've yet to hear a single report outside of JD.

I didn't think TRU could do single-store clearances on exclusives? Doesn't that come down straight from corporate? Or do they have leeway some places?

I would KILL to pick up a set on the cheap like this. So far nothing around here though.

I seem to recall Jim Rome had a funny story about that guy...something about him being a lousy tipper or something like that.

Hmmm, bounty hunters assembled from around the galaxy to compete in a no-holds barred fight to the finish to determine who will get to serve Dooku?

What a great idea! I love it!


Meh, it'll be cool no doubt, but to quote the inimitable Claudette Wims "That's just lazy, son."

Yeah, may as well pile on here and state that I think this line and everything about it completely SUCKS. Pegs are jammed full of this junk and it is not selling at all. I don't see how any store is ever going to find peg space for Wave 2.

Fun trip to TRU today.

I figured I would stop by over lunch to return the 5 new TCW figures I bought over a week ago and re-purchase them with the new Buy-2 Get-1 Free deal. Best case scenario I expected to get $9.99 back in my pocket and an extra free action figure to take home.

Somehow in the process of handling the return though, I ended up with $20.99 and the extra figure. So yeah, I ended up getting 6 figures for $30...not too shabby at all. Gotta love the New Math!

It was kinda fun picking something out of pure whimsy...I ended up going with the still pegwarming Puko Naga, coming off his recent appearance on the show. Did not realize he had unarticulated legs...ugh.

Hmmm, interesting. I don't see any dates on those pages anywhere, but I can't help but feel hopeful this might mean we see them before April.

Good find!

This wait has been too long, it's pointless and irritating.

I didn't even see peg space or a tag for these things at the Walmarts I checked today. If they're not coming in some kind of a pre-filled display, that does not bode well.

Made a few stops over lunch just to see what was cooking on the Big Release Day. Jack squat apparently.

Walmart came in cheapest for new TCW figures at $8.96. Target was a close second at $8.99. TRU has the early lead at $9.99.

I saw the new Wave 1 figures all over, pretty much the same stuff at every store. Every Chewie I look at seems to have a different paint job than the last.  ::)

That jet sub is in stock at BBTS

Only as part of the full case assortment though, right? Last time I checked it was not available individually.

Yeah, the Attack Recon Fighter and Republic Assault Submarine sets are part of Wave 2 apparently, and these are hitting now in the UK.

Since these are undoubtedly slated for a Toy Fair reveal in NYC, very low chances we will see these beforehand stateside, I would think. :(

No word on ETA/Wave info for the Republic Dropship yet, that I am aware...

Yeah, these things are probably stuck back in the warehouse next to all those TCW exclusive DVD 2-packs Hasbro made for them but mysteriously got "lost"...

I seem to remember watching this in elementary school for some reason.
