The starfighter is noticiably heavier than all the other titaniums we bought - my kids even mentioned it.  They look to be the same size to me in the package . Although the other new titaniums are new sculpts the most exciting titanium out of the 5 is the starfighter.

We ended up going to a WM in New York state today.  I found the starfighter!  Woohoo!

You weren't kidding, that thing is heavy.  It's as heavy as the Death Star.

I haven't opened it yet but I did compare it to the 2006 model.  It is a bit smaller and it does not look like it has the opening wing-tips.  I was sort of hoping that Hasbro would have done the same thing that they had done to the 3 3/4 Obi Starfighter in keeping the same size and adding the hyperspace ring.
Oh well...

I'm syill super happy that I found one  :party0053:

Picked up the Walmart-exclusive A-Wing in Michigan today.  I felt a bit ripped-off having to pay $29.97US for it though.  Saw the dregs of the Han and Luke Stormie wave.

They're COLLECTIBLES.  They don't become TOYS until you take them out of the package.

NO exclusives please - we're Canadian!

Not sure if this is worth noting here, found the BMF yesterday at Winners for $100.  Also had the Costco exclusive window boxed AT-TE with 7 figs for $70.

Bought the BMF  :party0053:

Cross border in Niagara Falls & Buffalo, the Wal-Mart Exclusive comic packs were out.  The ewok pack was the least on the shelves but multiple Wal-Marts did have the complete set.

A couple of local Target's still have last year's UBP's (Christophsis & Jabba's skiff) at FULL price.  If you are a G.I Joe collector, Target has many (4 different one's I believe) exclusive vehicles.

One Target and one Target only had the remnants of the Legacy wave that includes the Red ARC Commander and the Sandtrooper with black pauldron (one of each that I snagged).

I'm 99% sure I saw no Snowtroopers in N. Falls or Buffalo.

Phoenix had the following 'new' SW stuff when I was there last week:

- BAD Wave 4+5? (the various Catina bar patrons, up to Storm Luke/Han/etc.
- WM Exclusive comic packs (Ewoks, etc.)
- Various "exclusive" Mighty Muggs at Target (I only grabbed a Snowtrooper)
- CW AT-TE attack 4-pack (on sale!)

I picked up a couple of the Wave 6 figs yesterday (Captain Needa and Bearded Hoth Dude) in Saskatoon at a local comic shop. Paid a little more, but with the miniscule amount of figs we're seeing at our local TRU and Wally's, it was worth the extra coin. They had all of them but I'll wait to see if I can get the others cheaper somewhere else because they aren't all that good IMO. Would have loved to buy an Ughnaught, but it's hard to stomach $9.99 for one, let alone $13.99.

Hey everyone, I havent been on the board for a while. but now I'm back. Anyways,  I was down in the US a couple weeks ago, and was able to pick up Target's Rancor w/ Luke. This guy is a monster! I've don't own any other rancor, so I cant compare, but this is one huge toy. Also grabbed bits and peices of wave 6 and 7 Ugnaught, Needa, and Obi wan (atoc) and SL Sandtrooper. other than that, not much.
