Not in Rockville. 2 came out to $16 some.

Edit: I'd like to ask everyone here who's a completist- who does NOT want the '09 Wave 2 BAD HK47 parts? I would gladly buy these from anyone for $10(+ ship if we can't meet up) since I KNOW I will want a few of these guys and have no interest in the wave itself. Any help here will be much appreciated

Re: Local sightings

Found CW wave 3 at Long Gate Plaza Target in Ellicott City. Extras on C3PO & Droideka. Noticed that the DVD Commem. 3-packs & blue deco 501st helmet weren't out to coincide with DVD/Blue Ray release of CW at WalMart.

Re: Local sightings

The Target at College Park had a shelf reserved for a $60 Star Wars Battle Pack. What ever was there was gone. They also had the CW Obi Wan and Yoda battle packs out with the 4 troopers they come with. I also found the Millenium Falcon Battle Pack at the Glen Burine Walmart.

Interesting, which Target? Do we know of any big upcoming packs or is it a pleasant surprise?

Re: Local sightings

One of my local Targets (Manassas area) had the same thing - $62.99 for 087-06-2070 on the shelf with an empty shelf. Target's computer indicated none in the stockroom, all on the shelves, but nothing on the shelf. Target.com has both the Sarlacc Pit and Christophis for this DCPI (but not yet available), so my guess is it's like last year's UBP - two per case with this same DCPI - last year $49.99, this year $62.99! I don't see the value of the UBP - 5 figs and 2 vehicles - 5 figs (see BP's below) are about $22.99, and vehicles are running $19.99. That's $62.99... FYI - I never tried typing a dcpi on target.com before - was surprised it found them....

I did score (on the same shelf) 212th and Coruscant Gaurd
BP's at the same Target ($22.99, I think). Went to another a few miles away and they had nothing - the UPB's were in the computer, but Stockroom = No.

I'm assuming this one Target mistakingly set the endcap early and have not yet gotten the UBP's in...If like last year, these will be in the Sunday add after Thanksgiving, and the case probably has a big pink sticker that says do not set until Nov. 30.

I also could have sworn 2 hours ago when I checked, on Target.com, the BFM was 119.99. I was shocked that it was so low, but figured they would overcharge on shipping, so I ignored it. Now that I am writing this, I'm intrigued, so I went back and checked, and it was back to $159.99. Now I'm kicking myself for not paying more attention to the $119.99 price...did I really see that? Was it a mistake that just got fixed? Is it a BF special that was being programmed into the computer but just got fixed?....

Re: Local sightings

Yeah, the UBP's really suck this year. They should've LOWERED the price rather than raise it.
The same crappy figures from the Sarlacc BP of last year, plus the skiff and a cheap looking Sarlacc for 62.99???
No Thanks.
....and then the other set has a vehicle in it that wasn't even AT THAT BATTLE!!!
It isn't even presented well, it just looks like they just threw that stuff in there.

Let me know when they drop to 75% off.

I saw it too - but forgot to post it here. And you'll really kick yourself over this - it overlapped with their Free Shipping promo, so you could have scored it w/out any shipping.

That shelf is now for the GI Joe UBPs --- they actually put the GI Joe shelf sticker on top of the SW one. Spoke with the daytime toy manager and he says they haven't arrived yet. Had him look up other stores on his handheld. Only Lanham showed 2 as of yesterday afternoon.

Re: Local sightings

I was surprised to find both the Obi-Wan w/212th Battalion and Yoda w/ Courscant Guard Battlepacks today at my local Target at 5:30 in the evening. Go figure.
Picked them both up for my son for X-Mas, and also got his AT-TE in the mail from Amazon for 77 dollars shipped!!!
It was hard not to buy two of them.

Didn't see any UBP's, but I don't really care for them.
If they're still around after Christmas when the price drops, I'll reconsider.

Re: Local sightings

Stopped by the Toys R Us in Glen Burnie and they had the exclusive (repack) Battlefront II Clone (6 figures) & Droid (7 droids) packs out. Only problem is that they are $40.00 a piece. Seems a little steep!

Re: Local sightings

Some of the new 2009 Lego SW sets are out at my local TRU!
Saw the following:
8018 ATT
8019 Republich Attack Shuttle
8016 Hyena Droid Bomber
8017 Vader TIE Advanced
None of the other smaller sets. Bought the ATT.

Also saw the following IJ:
7682 Shanghi Chase
7683 Fight on the Flying Wing

Both of these seemed on the pricey side, but I did purchase the flying wing - thougth it looked very cool.

They had a bunch of other 2009 sets, too - a bulldozer (7685) and dump truck (8264) looked great....

Re: Local sightings

Found the two new 2009 lego SW battlepacks at same TRU today! Sadly, all of the vulture droids were gone, as were the aat's. I sure hope it wasn't scalpers.
