    I think someone said they found this toy at Walmart but they're now showing up at Target as well.

    Aww man, I picked one of these up on Nov. 5 when another poster mentioned that they saw this figure at a Target a week earlier. :/

    It's ok. Really great ship mode (if you like that style of ship) robot mode is ok but shoulder pieces really get in the way. The hip flaps do too but they aren't as bad. It has the improved articulation that the later SWTF figures have and most of the earlier ones lack. Transformation is ridiculously simple. It would probably rate a 0.5 on the transformer skill level rating. The ship model is really nicely detailed and I get these figures more for the really good looking ship modes and treat the robots as more of a novelty. Plus the missile storage on the bottom (so it isn't sticking out of the bridge) is a nice touch that the designer could have easily left out.

    Thanks for the info. From the pics online, I really like the look of the ship, but the robot doesn't do it for me. Not sure if its because we have so many clones in this line, the simple transformations, or both.

    Just found this at Target tonight too after creeping through their clearance video games. Tropico 3 for $15!
