We've got another story of retail woe (and a return of a real vintage figure to stores) in our latest entry in this ongoing saga of retail theft. Reader Nik was looking at the new Target AT-ST... and guess what he found?
We kick off this week of new Target exclusives with Shahan Alama, a Weequay pilot with a robot arm! He's in the new (and popular) Bounty Hunter pack with Robonino and a couple of droids, and made of mostly new parts. You want him-- admit it. Read on!
Because I love a good story-- even a good story gone wrong-- we're going to share Reader John's Wal-Mart swap-out story today. John saw not one, not two, but five Sandtroopers swapped out and returned to the store by a thief and, surprise surprise, the store wasn't too receptive to him trying to help. More after the jump.

Scott from Tulsa sends us a follow up from last month's damaged Mailaway Fetts from Hasbro.
Hasbro and Wal-Mart teamed up to bring you a great Jabba the Hutt set, and it seems so well they jacked up the price. Available online (with free site-to-store shipping) is the Jabba's Throne set which, since its August release, remains difficult to find at retail.
Obi-Wan's droid finally gets plasticized Clone Wars style with great paint apps using the R3-S6 "Goldie" mold. If you like your droids, plan on picking this one up!
Don't forget, this weekend will be the rollout of the newest Hasbro endcap at Target stores. We've seen Nerf and Transformers, but this one will be packed with new Star Wars exclusives. Keep your eyes peeled for Mini Mighty Muggs, Battle Packs, Geonosis Arena Sets, Clone Wars 2-Packs, and more stock of basic figures and other goodies.
He's juvenile! He's delinquent! He's young Boba Fett! Re-introduced in Season 2 of The Clone Wars, the young bounty hunter in training is going through his own rites of passage. The figure is incredibly done, with the good likeness and articulation that we've come to expect from this line.
It looks like collectors will be spending a lot of dough this week. Besides the new slew of Target exclusives, Toys R Us is also receiving the latest vehicles which include the Hyena Bomber, AT-AP, AAT, and Swamp Speeder. Mickey Gunslinger sends in his find from Chandler, AZ yesterday. Open up those wallets and Happy Weekend Hunting!
Oh Denal, we hardly knew ye-- but we do know that ye suit should be coming back on another figure soon! This Clone Trooper has a unique helmet and a nice rocket pack, but the head is not much to speak of. Should you check him out? Read on!
