Keep seeing stuff get cut at Wally World...  Saw the larger ships down some today, but not enough for me to bite.

I'm working on one of the A-Wings I got for $7.  I think I can make a pretty slick believable version of the pre-AWing with it.  It actually is oddly scaled depending how you view scale...  Being animated and all I figure that has some leeway to it, but the ship is pretty tiny.  The A-Wings in ROTJ though, there's 2 distinctly different scales.  One tiny, one fairly sizable by comparison, so I figure this could be a much weaker cousin of the ROTJ era A-Wing ultimately.  The Alliance maybe just decided the idea was sound, the ship just needed more umph and size to bump survivability.  This though, it looks like TIE bait and I kinda like that since Rebels makes it out that these things are getting lit up like firecrackers by basic TIEs of the era (the "small wing" model TIE Fighter that's common in the show, for whatever reason).

The ship in Rebels appears at different sizes/scales too for some reason.  Go figure.

The ultimately devious Hasbro design for this ship though, for those wanting to make it better, is they glued the nose together at the tip.  Just completely made it a chore to "fix"...  not that it wasn't a project anyway, but yeah, that inability to take it completely apart is a big hurdle now.  Easily broken by my eye.

But I'm cutting the NERF out anyway, and creating a cover there, so it's already a chunk of work.

GameStop is already putting the ROGUE ONE vehicles on clearance.  I saw both the TIE Striker and the U-Wing on clearance for $24.97 this afternoon.

Armor Up figures  hit $5 at Meijer...only one left at the store I went to was the TIE Pilot. One was marked $4.49. I didn't scan them.

Saw some U-Wings at Walmart marked down to $19 and change over the weekend. Those remote control R2's were also marked down to $60-something

Well, those aisle shippers were sent to just a few stores and not any near me.  I've been checking 4-6 different stores almost everyday and today the 2 nearest me didn't have any sign of the displays.  So it's selective.

I'm working from home this week and did a brief toy run on my lunch break to pick up Rogue One. Target put nothing out except for the 6 inch AT-ACT pilot. No Jedha battle packs, no new figures, no nothing. Same old picked over shelves they've had since November. TRU was even worse, having gutted their collection of Finn figures and pushing single figures to the front of the pegs to make the empty shelves look full.

Looks like we're done until Force Friday.

one of the Targets I went had a huge display (not that little black shipper) with all the DVDs and blu-rays and some of the Jedha packs, but nothing else new of note.

I did pick up a few AT-ACT Drivers at a different Target to take advantage of that $25 off deal.

Not a real complainer but today was a bust on the SW front. Seems like it was for most people. I know some folks are finding 40th Vader's and such but here there are no 5 POA new waves, 6 inch, maybe one or two AT-ACT Drivers. A couple Jedha Revolt sets at one Target. This is a very whimpering way to support the home video release of the biggest film of 2016.  ???
