If anyone is still looking for these latest packs (clones/Jedi), it looks like they might be popping up on HTS before too long.  They are on the site, listed as "coming soon", so you might want to keep an eye over there if interested.

Keep your eyes on Target as well.  I just found some this afternoon.

I found a lone pack at one Target and another at a different Target (only one) so I'm holding out until I find all four to use the coupon.  FU WM!   >:(     ....and FU Hasbro for raising the prices on these lil guys.   >:(

Thanks for the tip!  I still haven't seen these lil bastards at retail yet.

Oh I've seen the rare report here and there that people have bought them.

Heck though, getting them through HTS saves gas and using the code I gave saves even more money. So why not, right?

From today's Q&A session:

1. Will the non-exclusive Galactic Heroes Cinema Scenes be ready for the 7/26 launch? At Toy Fair, you thought that the Vader TIE set and the Obi-Wan Starfighter set would both be ready, but weren’t sure about the AotC Arena set and the Tatooine Dewback set. And what about the two TRU sets (Rancor and AT-RT), will those be out on 7/26?

** The new ones are running late, so first up will be a national release of the former Target exclusives. After that, the new ones should come up about a month after. The TRU exclusives will probably be in store by September.

The first two - Jabba and X-Wing or the last two; Mustafar and Endor.

Or all four?

Considering the first two are commanding a premium on the secondary market, and Target just cleared out the last two, it should be the Jabba Xwing combo. Plus releasing the ship again makes good sense with the release of a prequel Obi ship and vader's TIE.

Yeah, I would guess the earlier two (Jabba/X-Wing) as well.  That's a good thing since these packs always seem fairly difficult to find, and that combo in particular flew off the shelves here.  I never did get the X-Wing one, so maybe I'll grab it this time around.  I always thought it was a shame that the Jabba was so limited, so its nice it will be seeing a re-release so everyone can get one if they are interested.  I'm really looking forward to those new sets, but I'm almost relieved they won't be there right on 7/26 - there's enough to spend money on that day the way it is.

The clone commander sets are now up on HasbroToyshop!

My order shipped today even though it was on backorder and they weren't supposed to go out for another two weeks.

Thanks again!   ;)

I just noticed that Obi Wan's Jedi Starfighter, as well as Darth Vader's TIE are up on ebay (in Hong Kong) right now.  It has packaged pictures of each, which I wasn't sure we had seen before.

You bet'cha!

I should be getting my Clone Commander wave of Galactic Heroes on Monday from HTS.  Same as you they aren't supposed to ship until the 23rd, but they shipped early.

Anyone else think they should have made Cody with Obi-wan?? (Instead of Agen Kolar/Saesee Tiin)
And where is Neyo/Stass Allie or better yet just Neyo with his speeder bike?

Well, hopefully those will be future sets.
Hmm what would you folks think about a Galactic Heros AT-TE?? About or a little smaller than the GH Falcon.

I'd totally go for that!
