    Have any of you all seen the new VC Star Wars X-Wing in stores? I can’t ever see any availability on central coast to San Jose and most stores say they don’t sell it.

    I know @bearytrek got his by order pick-up. I see two Targets that list them but one is known for having inaccurate stock listings and the other is further away from me than I'd like.

    i saw one at Colma being taken by an employee (presumably gotten off the shelf) in a cart for order pickup on the day they went live...other than that I've only seen them briefly appear online, and that was checking very early in the a.m.

    amazon cancelled my tigatron preorder darn them...fortunately bbts still has preorders but I would have ordered via pulse last week if I had known there was a danger it wouldn't be fulfilled...

    i just looked and it says that Serramonte has "limited stock" and Fashion Island "in stock" but nothing for pickup so its a crapshoot whether there really is anything there or not (I did not see any at Serramonte this morning)

    At least I know they’re on CA. Now it’s just a matter of whether they’ll hit my area and if I can rationalize the expense to my wife. The former will be the easier of the two. LOL.

    Target Vallejo had 3 yesterday. I had picked up 1 a couple days earlier. This was actually a restock as someone posted in another forum that he had bought 4.from Vallejo a week earlier.

    Thanks for the link! Just grabbed a Waspinator and another Gnaw to score free shipping. I've been striking out on Waspinator for weeks, so it's nice to have one shipped for retail.
