    I kind of figured it was long gone by now but sometimes a random Target has stuff for no reason. More of a miracle happens and someone sees them kind of thing.

    Don’t give up yet. I recall seeing those trash compactor Lukes go on clearance and then return weeks/months later...briefly...at full price.

    I'll keep looking but one of the Targets I went to had (and I kid you not) over forty of the Elite Snowtroopers and a bunch of C-3POs so the chances of a restock are pretty low I think. Though you are right, sometimes they pop up completely at random. Oh and full price doesn't bother me because nothing goes on sale here, haha!

    Oh and carbonized Mandolorian seems to have had his listing removed from Target.com.

    I know it's an older release, but I was able to pick up the emperors wrath Vader at a great price. He makes a nice companion piece for the force ghost Yoda and Obiwan.

    If anyone is able to get an order in or find the carbonized Mandalorian and can get me one, I’d be very thankful. I ordered it day one and they cancelled my order because I missed their email asking if I was willing to wait. Haven’t been able to get it since.

    I thought this was cool, even better than the first one which I really liked.

    It was like $US13, but I checked it out at my sister’s, who has two girls...

    Has anyone else gotten in the Heavy Battle Droid and figured out just what the heck you're actually supposed to do with the extra pair of antenna? I refuse to believe they're supposed to be crammed between the existing one built into the backpack like the first promotional pictures. For starters, you're bending them so that can't be intended. Second, those extend and retract, so it seems a lot like the photographer just didn't know what they're for and saw the character model had them extended and didn't know it was an actual function so just crammed the detached ones in there.

    But now there's this official picture...
    [​IMG]
    Which has it seemingly connected to the right side of the backpack, but I cannot for the life of me tell how. There is a slot on the right side, but the peg of the antenna (at least on mine) is too large. Plus if it did go in there, the orientation wouldn't match what's done in this picture anyway.

    I'm just really perplexed by that thing.

    If it is like the previous Battle Droid (it looks like the one I have but painted differently) I know that the extra antennas are for if you want to display it without the backpack. Otherwise I just tossed them into a container nearby and left the backpack on.

    Without the...

    The backpack comes off?! That wasn't clear at all!

    I never had the original, so must've completely missed that.

    Thanks a ton! Haha.

    So I bit the bullet and pre-ordered the Star Wars The Vintage Collection Archive Edition book at BBTS. I enjoy a good action figure style guide and it's definitely going to be very interesting to see what the quality is like.

    Can't wait until Amazon.ca offers up pre-orders on The Mando wave of TVC. Going to enjoy picking them up.
