    I realize that this thread is going to get shunned by a bazillion people shouting:

    :useless 

    But I did find the K-Mart Exclusive War of the Skies 4-pack at the K-Mart on Fruitville Pike in Lancaster, PA. I didn't realize the original frontpage sighting was for the Phillipines, otherwise I would have taken pics. I just figured Lancaster, PA finally got them in, seeing as how we always get things last...

    I did not buy the set, as it was $24.99...and thats just ridiculous for 4 Legends and a trading card. Maybe if that BK coupon was still around...

    That's what I said. In fairness they look nice...but I wish they threw in a fifth Legend figure instead of the stupid trading card...

    Interesting how K-Mart's selling 4 Legends for $25 while Target's selling 5 Legends for $20.

    COME SHOP AT OUR LOW PRICES!

    Oh good, I'm going to Kmart this weekend.

    But 24.99? Crap, I was going to get the Minicon pack too.

    The price is kind of nutty.

    I'm still just stunned that we only saw a few pics before this set hit the retail stores. How did these sneak past the "preview" providers? Infact, we just got news of this set a few days ago didn't we?

    I gotta say that most legends go for about $5 apiece, so this isn't really all that much of a mark up is it guys and gals? Factor in tax and it's pretty close to what it would cost to buy them separately. On the other hand, as someone else pointed out, how do you justify selling a 4 pack for more than another store's 5 pack. And I do agree, a trading card instead of another figure, lame!

    My local KMart had this but, not the Minicon Pack. I passed on this. Still looking for the Minicons.

    $20 would be reasonable, but $25 seems too much like I'd be missing a figure. Good news for those who want the set, I suppose.

    Wow, that was fast. I didn't expect to see this set out for awhile. Heh, guess I'm gonna have to do some in-K-mart hunting now.
