I stopped in at TRU today to make sure that they would be doing the holo yoda deal today, and over by the legos they had mini TIE interceptors in a plastic wrapper for 5 bucks. Anyone know any info on this?

Man, I haven't seen polybagged sets in stores in a long time. No, it's technically not a new set. The MINI TIE Interceptor (along with MINIs X-Wing & Slave I) were released as Kabaya candy exclusives in Japan last year. This must be the US release, but five bucks is kinda steep for such a little set.

The yoda system (for my TRU), is that you spend 25 dollars on Star wars hasbro products (thus excluding LEGO), and you get a holographic Yoda figure.

This IS a new set at retail stores in the United States.

It is supposed to be used as a free item when you pruchase $14.99 worth of Star Wars LEGOs.

The promotion lasts from today (4/10) til Saturday (4/16)-While supplies last.

If anyone is able to buy it for $5, more power to you.

Personally I find it VERY easy to buy $15 worth of SW LEGOs so no need in buying just the mini TIE Interceptor.

KH, are you looking for the Lego set, or the Holo Yoda? I have several TRU's in my area.

Apparently its tommorow and you receive the set if you buy 15 dollars worth of LEGO products

Cool, I might have time to make a dash to TRU tomorrow before I go to see the Cubs play. If not I will make a stop there on the way home. It's to bad they closed the TRU in downtown Chicago. I could have stopped by that store as it wasn't far off the path I will be taking to get to the game. I can return the favor you did for me KH.

Thanks Frett, and love the new sig line.

Well, the original line was going to be "Kidhuman, you make me so very happy" but I thought others might get confused and think we're an item. :p

Yes, the official release date is today, but some stores had them last week for sale only.
