Target has the Class II Vehicles on sale through May 18 for $14.99 (these are the controversial “mid size” vehicles consisting of the Slave I, Kenobi Starfigher and Republic Tank). So if you’ve been considering these as a purchase, this is a pretty good price on these… and I for one actually think the tank is kind of cool even at a reduced scale (yes, I know I’m in the minority).
The Endor Imperial AT-AT that many of us have been waiting to see at retail is finally showing up at Toys”R”us stores here in the states – thanks to forum member AaylaSecurasMan for the heads up!
Our friends at Jeditemplearchives are reporting more finds of last year’s Wal-Mart exclusive Vulture Droid and Dewback at Ross stores for $13.99 each (complete with Wal-Mart exclusive stickers!).
If you’ve been holding out on these, this is a great price for some of the better product from 2012.
K & C Collectibles has received the exclusive Mynock Hunt Han Solo mini-bust from Gentle Giant and a new Boba Fett Billfold. We also added some Battle Packs from 2008 and 2009. Click on through for the entire list!

Hasbro may have given the Clone Wars line the cold shoulder, but Yakface forum members have expressed a different sentiment altogether. This new customizing challenge allows for both animated and realistic style figures – join in the fun and show off your skills (or lack thereof) after the jump!
For collectors curious as to the status of the Toys”R”Us Exclusive Endor AT-AT, we have just received an word from Hasbro that this now has an official US release date of June 1.
Last year’s third wave of TVC is continuing to show up in greater numbers now (about a year late!), which is good in a sense, but also one has to wonder if things would be better if this wave just showed up at discounters instead; considering this wave (like Wave 2) is smothered in seven more TPM carry forwards.
On any note, Toys”R”us seems to be the best place to have a chance at scoring newer figures lately, but reports are also coming in that Wal-Mart and Target are finally receiving more TVC shipments as well. Good luck, and as always, your experience will vary.
The evidence of just how bad 2012 was for Hasbro continues to surface as even more of the weak offerings from Movie Heroes pile up at discount chains like TJ Maxx. If you passed on most of the vehicle repacks like so many other collectors, they are showing up at TJ Maxx and Marshalls for $16.99 and the battle packs for $11.99.
Facebook reader Adam V. also reports that Dewbacks are appearing at Ross stores for $13.99.
