A store by my college still has a couple of these...but at full price, as well as a ton of TIEs and exclusive battlepacks, again all at full price!

I'd love you get another pair of these for 34.99, but they sold out here long before they hit clearance.

Don't forget to check the Target.com's "find it at a Target store" feature; just because there aren't any on the shelf doesn't mean there isn't another case hiding in the stockroom

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Woohoo! Finally got it!

I saw these a few months ago- and passed (because of the price) But as my collecting bug had to be sated, I went hunting for the x-wing again. Took some time (and traveling!)

I give it 10/10 for subject matter- Wedge Antilles's X-Wing! I got back into the SW craze in '95 when I read the first X-wing novel, Rogue Squadron . Wedge is one of my favorite charactors. And he's never given his credit!

The only other x-wing I've ever owned was the Vintage out-of-scale ROTJ one as a kid. This one outshines that mold in every way. Its not perfect- lack of cockpit detail, awkward head on Wedge, super-loose astromech, but still worth it.

The kill markings (sweet!)are an awesome addition, but the white stickers are annoying. There has to be another way. With a little custom work, this will look great next to the Elite Tie Intercepter in 181st markings!

Had I known this version was coming I would have passed on the Dagobah X-Wing. Maybe I'll just break down and buy it.

So far I've only seen this version once. Target off the 15 fwy at the Cajalco exit, in Corona.

Wow... the Kesin Omnis variant!!!
That's not all! It's the POTF2 electronic X-wing, too, with built-in Luke & R2.

Yeesh.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

I just can't stand people that buy an item, exchange it for an older version and just take it back to the store. It's stealing and the store employees are too retarded to notice.

Anyway, back on the subject, i love this X-Wing mold but i hate that Hasbro slacked on the cockpit. We got those wonky killstickers but no stickers where need be, i.e. in the cockpit. This vehicle would look a lot better with some stickers in the cockpit to mimick the controls.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Well, several months ago, Target was clearencing out some SW stuff (got the Tie Fighter) and was hoping to get the X-Wing on clearance. Well, my local store had a bunch and they just disappeared. Last week, they showed up again for 30% off. Thought about it, but I couldn't pull the trigger. Was back there tonight, and there were still a couple left. The sticker still showed 30% off ($35). I scanned the thing just to be sure, and it came up at 75% off ($12.48)!!!

Obviously, YMMV...

I grabbed the last two. Not sure it would be a great deal after the shipping costs if there were any left. This thing is pretty big...

Nice find. You could have maybe even used TRU's ad to get a B1G1HO deal there.

Not likely. The X-wing was a Target exclusive. Target will PM absolute prices only (not Bogo, 20% off, etc)

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

I saw about 15-20 of these at Target this afternoon. Sure enough, 75% off. None of them had a sale sticker on them.

I have no idea what your financial situation is like, but maybe you should consider picking a bunch of them up and passing the savings along to your fellow scummers?

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Have a boxed Wal-Mart AT-ST to trade for one of these Wedge X-Wings if anyone is interested and willing. Would also be happy to pay for a Wedge X-Wing at the 75% off price (plus shipping and handling)!

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Why not check your local Target? They have been showing up at multiple Targets in CA and MN. The deal isn't so hot anymore once you add $20-$30 for shipping...

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

$35 is probably a fair price. Item should have been priced at $40 retail, not $50. Almost every Target I have been in lately has a stack of these for $35. Finding it for $12.48 is the trick. But, if you have to add shipping, it's no longer a steal...

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Haven't seen these locally in Augusta in months; full priced or not. I remember having to order one online back in January because the stores were long out. If you remove the X-wings and put them in one large box the shipping should equal itself out. I don't even need the figures, just the X-wings for my Yavin Hanger dio

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

Managed to find just one of these but only really for the extra stuff. I have the X-Wing itself loose for trade if anyone is looking for just the ship.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

I called two Targets and found one that had the Xwing on clearance , they said they had one (the other store had 18 of them at full price).....when I got there of course there were none anywhere to be seen so I asked someone, happened to be the guy I talked to on the phone, he claimed he told me he didnt have any, when on the phone he said there was one......so another wasted trip....

about the only thing I have left to trade is a TRU Hoth Patrol BP (the one with Luke, Taun Taun, Wampa), a Incinerator troop, and a Saga Royal Guard.

Re: Wedge Antilles\' Red 2 X-Wing Starfighter v2

There are 3 of these sitting at a local Target, but still at full price.

Will keep waiting until they go on clearance.
