I dig those goggles too.  I think Hasbro can do some really innovative looking work when they put their minds to it, and those are a primo example.  Wish they moved, but I'm sure I can make them move. :)

Looks fantastic.  Probably one of the most wanted figures for me now.

I preordered this from TRU.com using a certificate. Your pictures made this thing look very impressive. I'll probably get rid of the Rey and Finn though.

I assume this will be available at Target as well, correct?

Just a heads up that (right now at least) the new TRU 20% off coupon seems to be working on the Takodana Encounter pre-order:

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=94348326&skuid=24033058

Drops the price from $24.99 to $19.99 and you still qualify for the free shipping deal (free ship on $19+ orders)! :)

Wow, that was painless.  The coupon worked, great price, paid with Paypal... and now I don't have to look for it.

Thanks Jeff!

Nice to get a discount like that on a new item that's sure to be kind of hot.  And glad that I won't have to run around looking for it.

Stumbled upon this set tonight at a local Walmart while looking for TBS Wave 4. A nice surprise! Rang up at $24.86, and the store had 7 of them.

Target near me had the aisle revision done and these waiting on the shelf this afternoon.

Before I give Rey and Finn to my son and sell BB8, can anyone verify how exactly the same these are to their original release?

Finn and Rey are exactly the same, outside of Rey having the lightsaber and hilt. Not sure about BB-8.

BB8 heavy, or a pingpong ball?

BB-8 in the set is the heavier version with the peg hole in the bottom.

Sweet, one more reason I want one.  Hoping to find these at KM tomorrow, and spend points on it as a "freebie" then.

Found these at a few different metro Target last night.  Pretty cool set, but its easy to miss on the shelf.
