I've recently a few new items showing up at Winners/Marshalls.

One Winners had the TVC AT-AP and V-19 ($19.99). 

Both stores seem to be getting Fighter Pods.  Between the two I've seen Wave 3 X-Wing vs Tie Fighter multi-pack ($14.99) and Wave 4 pod launchers ($12.99) and Slave-1 and Geonosian Fighter packs ($9.99). 

I think I may have also seen some large LEGO Vader and Stormtrooper items.

I went over to Buffalo and Niagara Falls today to see if I could track down some of the new Kmart figure packs. There were none in stock in Buffalo, just empty shelf space marked for them. I did find a single Ewok Catapult pack in the Niagara Falls store, so bought it. Perhaps there is more stock coming, and these were just from the initial shipment.

I just received the Vintage Collection Tie Interceptor today from Amazon.  The item was well packaged this time as opposed to the issues that plagued the Slave I.  The only very minor problem that mine has is a faint scratch line on the side flap from an ezacto knife used to open the shipping carton that they opened at Amazon to distribute the product.  The scratch on mine is very light and I might not have noticed if I hadn't been forewarned by comments on this happening to other people who have purchased this item.

If anyone else is interested it was about $65 with shipping (it was 'on sale' for $46.13 when I bought it), you probably won't be able to get it any cheaper down the road.

I did my Amazon order and it went smooth. The shipping and US custom charges seemed fair.

The Amazon Droid Factory 6-pack is currently on sale for 39.99. The price changed back to 57.12 and then back to 39.99 so no idea how long this will last.

The price is still at $39.99 at the moment. I'm working on seeing if I can get a price adjustment for the 2 I ordered, as others have been able to get.

UPDATE: Successfully got a $40 refund applied to my account. Makes the price much more palatable now.

I was able to get the discount as well last night. I had ordered mine on October 24. I used the Amazon chat feature with the customer rep. They told me that a refund normally won't apply because I received my package more then 7 days ago but they refunded me because I was a loyal customer. I think you just have to keep on their case if you are not successful the first time. Try different customer reps if you need to.

^^^ This.
I entered a chat, noting that an item I had recently ordered is now on sale, and if I could get a price adjustment. It took me trying the chat with 3 or 4 reps but I finally got the refund. They did keep bringing up the 7 days thing, so wouldn't give me the actual price adjustment, but did eventually compromise by giving me a $20 "goodwill refund" for each item. This was after I pointed out that I could still simply return the old items and re-order them again at the lower price, and that I figured it would save Amazon time and money to just give me the refund instead. There are lots of examples in the Jedi Temple Archives comments on this topic that indicate those people did not have any problem getting the refund right away. It seems it varies from rep to rep.

Wedge1021  thanks for your post about requesting a refund.  I did it today, via chat.  My order was shipped at the end of October, but they gave me the refund right away and did mention the 7 day policy for next time after giving me the refund.  It was a good deal because other order had the Tie Interceptor at a good discount price, so I got the best price on both items.

Not bad if you actually want them. Definitely brings them down to a fair retail price, which is great. I'm waiting for Slave I to drop in price, think it will happen?! Not holding my breath, but ya never know. :)

I was able to get the $20 refund last week, as the price dropped before I had even received them.  I was considering going after another $10 off today with the new price reduction, but probably shouldn't push my luck.
