I haven't seen the Republic Dropship or the Clone Sub in stores around here yet and I haven't seen the Clone Mini Y-wing for a long time.

I saw the mini y-wing at a Walmart about a year ago, but passed on it as it wasn't an exclusive (I normally avoid Walmart like the plague that it is, but the occasional exclusive does pull me in).

I saw the sub this past spring, also at a Walmart and I passed on it for the very reason I mentioned above. Oddly (or perhaps not, given Hasbro's recent track record) I haven't seen either of them since.

I believe the Dropship is newly released (more or less). That was the first I'd seen it. There was only one at my local Target - which I bought, but I'm sure there will be more (as long as the other "Class I" vehicles sell through and trigger the automated reordering system).

The mini Y-Wing was something of a scarcity in my neck of the woods. I saw it only twice, each time at Target, and I was able to nab it at that time. The clone submarine came and went pretty fast around here, too. I never saw it at Target, only at Walmart. And my local collecting buddy texted me last night to tell me that he found the dropship for me at Target over the weekend.

I saw the dropship at Target over the weekend, too. But it was in the hands of some other dude in the toy aisle. I lingered just a little bit to see if he might put it down, but no dice. So, from what I can gather, this one is hitting at Targets across the nation right now. But being packed one per case, with the other three being carry-forwards from previous waves, I would recommend that all collectors nab this one at the first opportunity. This might be another sneeze-and-you-missed-it kind of thing. Or not. Time will tell; but I wouldn't risk it.

My local Walmart stocked two cases of the Fox wave over the weekend. And I was able to find the dropship at Target earlier in the week. So, I all caught up for the year.

I don't see that thing anymore. I am afraid it may have come and gone already.

Sad

If you live in the midwest, they are apparently showing up at something called Fleet Farm as this shot from Yakface attests.

Sadly, there are no Fleet Farms around here.

I just ordered the Wolffe gift pack from Hasbro Toy Shop. After shipping and tax, the total came out to a few cents over $40. It is scheduled to ship on 12/3.

Yesterday morning I dropped by the land of the great unwashed to see if they had any of their exclusive 8-packs remaining. They did. About ten of them. I only found one that interested me (which I bought). It had the following:

CW40 Obi-Wan Kenobi
CW41 Clone Trooper Hevy (in training armour)
CW46 Aqua Droid
CW48 Commander Wolfe
CW55 Savage Opress (shirtless)
CW57 Stealth Ops Clone Trooper
CW54 Saesee Tiin
CW61 Seripas

The first 6 I already had, though I didn't have the Aqua Droid in that packaging. And really, all but Kenobi and Savage could be considered army builders. Tiin and Seripas I had never seen before, so I'm pleased to now have them. I think I'm only missing 4 or 5 figures from that line now.

I was less impressed with Toys R Us (no big surprise). Since I don't live anywhere near one, I had to rely on their website for that two-pack deal. It was listed for $19.99. And despite what the website shows, it is supposed to be available for that price today as well. I never saw it in stock though. It doesn't really surprise me. I've noticed TRU tends to show highly desired items as being "out of stock" when they have sales. I suspect this is either deliberate on their part, or perhaps they only make a small number available which then go out of stock quickly. Either way, it makes me not want to shop there.

My friend picked up the Mandalorian Assault Transport/Anakin's Jedi Starfighter 2-pack for me at TRU. It was $20.

Their when we get around to it, maybe we'll toss it in a bubble mailer shipping policy makes me not want to shop with them online. The sad lack of selection makes me not want to shop in their stores. And it's a shame, because I would much rather buy toys from a toy store than Walmart or Target.
