I see an Obi-Wan I don't need!  ::) ;) :D  I hope there are a few super articulated Droids, that'd be a real let-down to get 20 of these!  :-\ :(

Wow, that looks like an Episode 1 era Obi, that head is just wow.

What they should do is go collect all the obi's hanging on the walmart pegs and put them in the MTT instead

I think the vehicle will be good but the figures will suck hard core.

I really don't like the droids in the standing postion.If they folded up inside the MTT that would have been better.Also,would you imagine the amount of Battledroids that would have been sold?

I wont bore you with pictures of what the thing looks like out of the box since we already know

but if you are like me, and chances are you are not, you are wondering how the included Battle Droids compare to the older molds in our collections




the 16 unarticulated droids all have a slot on the back to allow the blaster to plug into
the 4 others have backpacks that are directly molded on so they wont fall off ever, but they do not have a place to store the blaster other than holding it

If you haven't seen the front page.I found the behemoth at my local Walmart this morning before work. is 129.99 which is petty pricey for this thing.It ain't the At-TE or the turbo tank.

Paying $129.99? I DON'T THINK SO.
At that price & its just now starting to hit.
This thing will be discounted by November & there will be plenty of them for Xmas.
I can wait for a better deal.

Every retailer in my area has these monsters & NOT 1 HAS SOLD yet?
With price of $130 & schools starting back? These will be discounted, sooner than later.
Even the Scalpers are avoiding them? They know they will lose $$ in time.

I've yet to see them in my area yet, I know Hasbro has said the sales on this might dicate the creation of a Sail Barge.  That's too bad because based on what I've seen and read, it's probably NOT going to happen.  :-\

This really was a BAD marketing plan to have a $130 toy come out within 1-2 weeks of schools starting back?
Parents have enough to buy for school between clothes & supplies? Hasbro decides now is the time to put a $130 item out?
Should have released in September - October?   My TRU has already gotten 12 cases of them? getting ready for Xmas?

I have gone to 9 stores since Thursday and none of them have carried these units yet. Hopefully by Christmas I would start seeing them. If I do, they better go on sale, because nobody is going to afford them.

My walmart reset and has a spot for them but no product in place yet.  But don't worry cause they restocked the TPM wave of vintage figs.

Wow, my local Walmart had 2 MTT's on their shelf for $130 too. They weren't there last Thursday. Maybe I will start seeing more new SW items soon..

Well bought and opened mine up tonight. 
Not bad, probably not worth 130 bucks though. The included battle droids are flimsy and their heads fall off far to easily.  The droids deploy well, though not screen accurately.  Retracting the droids can be a little tricky.... If you guys buy this be sure not to throw away the instructions and sticker sheet that are quite hidden in the cardboard. All in all I'd grade this a B- on hasbros part, glad it came out but could be better for its high price tag.

Really Hasbro... You expect these to be used in the phantom menace line from 1999.

ok, get this - TRU posts a 50 dollar discount on the mtt - so those bastards increase the price before the sale... wow - real douche move. I hate TRU... bad enough they never have anything in stock but then they pull this crap..

What the heck is going on with TRU. Their Holiday Big Sale Book have a lot of sales that are actually the same prices as the other stores have already. TRU is still behind the times and so why do they still get exclusives each year then. They make just as much sense as Hasbro, NOT...
