Yeesh! $130 before taxes for a new x-wing basically? Frak! I'm going to have to pass sadly!

Man! I was actually considering getting the Trench Run set. But not at full price I'm not. I have no idea where that kinda of price came from! Wow.

Hopefully these sightings mean we might actually see some new waves soon.

You can get the CW Shuttle for $10 cheaper ($89.99) at Zellers... that said, still quite expensive.

I know.  If they drop the price down, then I'll try to convince my wife to let me get it.  For me, it's actually quite worth it in that I don't have any XWings nor Darth Vader Ties anymore in my collection.

$130 for the Trench Run set is very disappointing.  There's no way I'll pay that much, especially since I thought the US price of $99 was too much.  :shakehead:

Hi gang,
Sorry if I'm sounding like a broken record bashing Hasbro, but unless we bombard Hasbro customer service with complaints they'll never get the message. I feel sorry for anyone who might not yet own either of the 2 vehicles of the Trench Run set and wants them. This is not a fair option at that price. As I can see, no new tooling was required for this set and as such I would rather see the X-wing offered on its own (and no cheap pack-in figure) for $40 max and as Vader's TIE has been released regularly the set makes no sense to me. They can't even be bothered to fix Luke's lightsaber after all these years. I guess they suppose us geeks will be quite willing to toss them $50 for packaging. Also, it wouldn't hurt to send TRU and WalMart suggestions that they insist on Hasbro packing new assortment cases with all figures from that wave and leave "refresh" figures to separate dedicated cases for restocking the older figures as needed. The problem is that retailers take little interest in the assortment breakdown of action figures and I doubt they realize how Hasbro takes advantage of that to sell them old stock at new figure rates. They need to stop making excuses about the viability of creating unique sku #'s for each figure instead of one general sku that does not allow them to track stock properly and insure that they are putting new items on the pegs.
Respects to you all, cheers.

Saw the Trench Run set and the Clone Wars Shuttle at TRU today.  They were $129.99 and $99.99 respectively.

I wonder what the cheapest price for that Shuttle will be around Christmas time.

Seems like those last few TRU sales might have worked! Saw what appeared to be at least 3 possibly 5 cases of the AOTC wave packing the pegs this morning at a local TRU. Also at least 3 cases of the newest Saga Legends with the Spacetrooper etc. Which wave is slated to be next for us? The one with the Rebel Fleet Trooper or straight to Ponda and Echo Base soldier?

I thought this wave:

Han Solo
(Bespin Outfit)
Barriss Offee
(Jedi Padawan)   
Rebel
Fleet Trooper   
Bom Vimdin
(Cantina Patron)   
ARC Trooper Commander
(Captain Fordo)   
Logray
(Ewok Medicine Man)

was supposed to be next.  It would be another Hasbro Canada travesty, if we miss it, and move on to the Ponda Baba wave, which has only three new figures.

Legends is shipping the Ponda Boba wave first as that is what Hasbro shipped early to them.

I want this wave most, but I sure hope that both will be coming to Canada. Has it been confirmed that they are

different TRU on the way home, almost same scenario. Things are moving (strike that) creeping forward. Also they had a Death Star planetarium that projects the SW galaxy on your ceiling I suppose!
