    Sorry if this isn't news without any pics, but I work at Target and if anyone questions it, there is a whole forum full of Illinois folks who will vouch for me. I saw Mindwipe, Defender Optimus, and the new wave of Star Wars crossovers (Y-wing) at my Super Target in Broadview, IL last night.

    Out on the shelf, ready for the first person who gets there!

    ^Pretty much what Mechafire said. Seems like everything we know is coming out has come out now.

    I am going to assume that means The Twilight is available too since it is supposed to be the same wave as the Y-Wing.

    True. We're in for quite a bit of news when Toyfair comes around.

    If it helps, here are pictures from this morning in Washington State to confirm:

    Yes, The Twilight is in that wave. I picked it up just for R2-D2.

    Still missing the last wave of deluxes, FAB's, and quite a few RPM's, but otherwise pretty much yeah. Here's hoping these last few waves won't be a bitch to find.

    I also just saw the front-page announcement that the next wave of Scouts is out now. I kind of figured they would be arriving around the same time as Mindwipe due to his interaction with Skystalker. It looks like I'll have to go try to find them after work today.
