Saw these at Target as well. Picked up the Sandtrooper. Thought about Maul, but left him for now. I will wait for the version of Luke I prefer and will pass on R2D2.

No sign of these in my usual hunting grounds. Although I did have the great fortune of seeing them on Thursday night, as one of the guys brought them to our monthly, local collectors meeting. The articulation and paint apps on these are phenomenal, and the sculpts are far better than I could have imagined. Hasbro definitely got these right.

I just really wanted the Maul and I drove to six Targets and he was always the one that was gone. Dangit. Everyone's going after the Maul. These are flying off the shelves right now.

People seem to be passing on the Luke, but dang, I was pretty darn impressed by him in the store, so I picked him up and I wasn't even planning to. In hand, I'm really impressed. Fantastic figure as long as the paint doesn't come of his face. People might dismiss him because he's not Bespin or Jedi, but I love this first figure. I would much rather have flight suit over farm boy. This was a happy purchase.

I saw R2, and I admit, I chickened out on spending $20 on such a little toy but I have a feeling that I'll regret it later and I better get him. But I want a Darth Maul now!!

I saw a Maul last week, but his face paint wasn't ideal so I passed on him.
Gotta say, I am VERY impressed by the Sandtrooper. I keep finding myself picking him up and playing with him. :mrgreen:

I can't remember which one, but the lines under his eyes were not quite symmetrical from the left side of his face to the right side. If I am paying $20, the paint apps need to be excellent, especially on a character with such distinctive markings.

Has anyone heard of these being available at select locations only?

My local Targets have just recently finished the resets (within the last 2 days) and they DO NOT have pegs/tags for Star Wars Black figures (of either size) in the new set up.

I'm not overly concerned as I'm definitely only cherry picking the line, but still... is anyone else noticing this besides me?

Havent seen the issue--

Just found the 3-3/4 black line at Kmart during lunch-- Padme was missing-- the only fig I really wanted in this wave..

Got her from Amazon this morning.
FYI they gave her the bloody scars/rips on the back of her shirt where that Cat thing clawed her. Not sure how I feel about that . . .

And yes, all the 6 inch SW Black figures are not being hung, they are currently being placed on the bottom shelf under the pegs. And I'm pretty sure the Target's are only getting four of them at a time. :shock:

Haven't been here in a while, but I came across Luke today. Although I really can't wait for the Bespin Luke, I was blown away by how good this one looked. No other figures were left. Even Artoo was gone. My closest Walmart just did a toy reset and they have the 3.75" Black Series, but no tag anywhere for the 6". Anyone know if some WM stores might not get them?

I found all four figures yesterday at Target. Only the four, though; no multiples.

After much internal debate, I walked away with the Sandtrooper and R2-D2. I decided to stick with a few iconic characters from the first three movies. So although Darth Maul looks great, I left him behind with X-Wing Luke (I'd rather have Bespin or Tatooine Luke anyway.)

The R2 figure was a tough sell. It's so small and hardly seems worth $20. But there's a chance it might not be released again, and I didn't want to risk it. I think R2-D2 would have made a better boxed set with C-3PO or Leia.

I haven't seen them yet in this area either. Still on the fence about this line.

I picked up the Sandtrooper at TRU, the only one I've seen, and I loved it. I haven't bought Star Wars figures in forever, and normally I'm a 3 3/4 guy, but this just looked so cool.

Then I picked up R2 and he is pretty bad ass with all his accessories. The other two I have not been able to find after I decided I wanted them, they seem to be moving pretty quickly. I just hope they restock pretty soon. It feels like Hasbro really kicked some ass with this line.

The 3 3/4 Black line just leaves me cold, though, it looks just like all the other SW figs we've had the past decade - and the lesser articulated figs sucks. But the big boys are great!
