    Still in the stores? If so, at what price. Any other Starfighters out there other than the TRU X-Wing?

    TIE Bombers just recently hit the stores (the Saga package version), and in some cases haven't even been put on the shelves yet. Cost is $26.88 or so I think.

    Aside from the TRU X-Wing (which has disappeared in some regions) the only others on the shelves right now are the Jedi Starfighter & Slave 1, and those are heavily clearanced in some places.

    Things I've heard possibly coming up this year: A-Wing, TIE Fighter (basic), Geonosian Fighter, rerelease Naboo Fighter, "Anakin Skywalker" version of Jedi Starfighter, ESB version of Slave 1

    Ah, thanks. By the way, Is the Bomber exclusive? I heard its WM, but I also heard that was the PotJ one.

    Yeah, Wal-Mart Exclusive...just like the POTJ original. It's just a repaint/pack of the same mold sold by the same store.

    I never even saw the POTJ TIE Bomber, but I got the Saga TIE Bomber about a month ago at Wally World.

    I picked up the POTJ Tie Bomber and its a great toy. A friend of mine picked up the Saga Bomber and I do like the new paint job. If I get my hands on some extra cash I'll probably pick it up also.

    I saw the POTJ TIE Bomber once. Bought it. Never seen it again.

    I love Hasbro's and my area's stores distribution [face_plain]

    POTJ TIE Bomber was fairly well distributed down here, a couple at each store that seemed to come and go off the shelves.

    The Saga version's only showed up at one store down here...where there were original 16!! of the things. Since then that supply has dropped to around 9 or so, but none of the other stores have come through with any.

    The TIE Bombers are very readily available at the Wal-Marts here.

    I have the POTJ TIE Bomber, and it's by far my favorite SW vehicle, so I highly recommend the Sage re-release. I personally plan to get the Saga version as well, but I'll have to wait till I have a little extra cash to do so... :p

    Have to agree with ya Neck, the TIE Bomber is definitely one of the finest vehicles out there and the Saga repaint makes it even better.

    Everytime I go into Wal-Mart I have to resist picking one up, since I've already got a POTJ one. I'm trying to avoid being a completist after all. ;)

    Maybe they won't sell all of them and it'll wind up on clearance... :)
