Found a couple new 2016 sets at my local Target today - the Resistance Trooper Battle Pack and the Polybag version of Poe's X-Wing. Nice pair of sets to kick off what will probably be quite a bit of Lego acquisition for me over the next couple of days...

That's cool, I was looking forward to seeing those soon.  Might have to take a run today to see if my Target has them out yet.

The new 2016 product continues to trickle out at my local Target, today it was the First Order Battle Pack so I grabbed a pair of those. Would have liked one more Stormtrooper instead of Gunner/Officer figure instead, but still a nice battlepack to add to my First Order troopers.

Cool finds for sure.  My Target was dry.  Guess I'll have to wait until Saturday when they are scheduled to be released and check back.

I somehow missed the A-Wing Polybag, so I grabbed one on eBay this week.  I also managed to score a Tumbler at a massive discount that I couldn't say no to.

Hit up my local Lego store yesterday morning. Was pretty disappointed that they didn't have more of the new Star Wars sets. No sign of any OT, PT or Rebels sets - all they had were the buildable figures, the Resistance Transport, Battle or Takodana and the First Order Snowspeeder Microfighter.

Was really hoping to pick up the Carbon Freeze Chamber and new Hoth set.

They seemed more interested in promoting the new Nexo Knights line and the Ghostbusters firehouse, which is neat, but not $350 neat.

Did a quick check of the local TRU this evening and FINALLY spotted the exclusive 3PO figures... you know, 2 months after the promotion ended. They were being sold for $6 a pop so I got two of them. Hoping to trade them for some other polybag figures on Reddit.

They also had the new TFA sets (Takodana, Battle Packs, etc.) with no TRU tax but I passed for now.

Ended up finding all the new sets in the area, but had to go to three different stores to do so. Picked up the Resistence and First Order troop sets and the Battle on Takodana set. Nice thing was, the Target I found the Takodana set at had it mislabeled as a 'House of Mirrors' set and it was only $49.99.

Picked up the new Obi-Wan Jedi Interceptor and Droid Escape Pod sets at my local WalMart - I have only seen these two sets at one WalMart, almost has me wondering if they got these sets prematurely by accident

Wow, great find.  That set has been sold out for months around here.

Picked up some new sets yesterday at Walmart. They had all of the new 2016 set but I went home with The Ghost (microfighter), Snap Wexley's X-wing (microfighter) and the Carbon Freezing Chamber.
