Spotted the new vehicle assortment in the new packaging, including the Fighter Tank. TRU here had new Galatic Heroes sets too - the Sail Barge and Medal Ceremony.
Saw the Clone Turbo Tank at TRU today, $100. It comes with a speeder bike and a tank gunner clone sculpted in the Animated style.
Also spotted some SW Uncle Milton science sets - robotic Vader arm, Naboo aquatic environment (sea monkeys!), a neat-looking Dagobah frog environment, Mustafar volcano lab, among others...
I saw the remains of the AOTC wave at a couple of different stores over the weekend. They're out there, if you're willing to visit more than one store.
I have now found the AOTC wave in full 6 different times in the past 2 weeks. So far, this has been the easiest wave to find in my 30 years of collecting...
I picked up the new republic fighter tank about a week ago. I think the design is great but the deco leaves a bit to be desired. Not bad though. I've seen the magna guard fighter several times now as well. Will eventually look at picking that one up.
Haven't seen the turbo tank yet but I'm looking forward to that one.
Really enjoying the pix from ComicCon to see what's coming up...
My TRU had a lot of new stuff today. I saw the Clone Wars Deluxe figures, $18: Anakin/Can-Cell and two Clone packs, but not Dooku/Speeder and Crab Droid. These deluxe packs are friggin' huge. I thought they were scaling back packaging sizes.
Captain Rex role-play helmet, $35.
R/C R2-D2, $35.
Commander Ponds TRU exclusive figure, $10. I want that one, but not for $10.
Saw some of the newer packaged vehicles and 2-packs at Target today. The figures were pretty well picked over by the time I got there.
The new Legos have arrived, too. I like the Endor battle set, but not enough to pay $100. Maybe it will go on clearance after Christmas.
