Is it out yet? I was just curious about it, so I tried to look it up on Target's website, and I didn't find anything.

I heard people are finding it difficult to find. Apparently Target are not putting them on the shelves but probably have thim in the back if you ask for them.

It's been out over here in the UK for a month now.

I just love General Veers Hologram, and Blizzard Scout 1 is pretty useful too. I just had a 500pt game with Blizzard Scout supporting the AT-AT. Flanking Fire was so useful! B)

So what figures are in it? Wizards just says "17 pre-determined figures," which doesn't tell me much.

Pretty stupid of them, but I may have to recheck the local Targets to see if this is the case.

Edit: Well tried it, but what really ain't helping matters is that Hasbro released an action figure exclusive also called Battle of Hoth. And one particularly thick half-wit tried to convince me that they were the same thing, even when showing him that the box he was holding and the picture from WotC's website were two entirely different things.

anybody know if one can get this in Canada by any chance. I thought I saw on the website and when I followed the link, it said U.S. only?

I got one, and it was in the Collectibales section, not the toys. Here are the figures.

Darth Vader, Imperial Commander
Blizzard Scout 1
Holographic Genreal Veers
2 Snowtroopers (A&E, RS scuplts)
Elite Snowtrooper
Snowtrooper with Repeating Blaster
Princess Liea, Hoth Commander
Luke and Han on Tautans
2 Hoth Troopers
2 Elite Rebel troopers(A&E, rs sculpts)
Rebel leader
Hoth Trooper with Atgar Cannon
Snowspeeder

It cost $60, but mine also came with an Bonus Bounty Hunters pack, so I don't know how much it is elsewhere.

If it's around $30 or $40, I might have to look into that. :)

Guess I'll have to check out that section of the store. Every other time I've looked for SWM stuff at Target, it's been amongst the CCGs, which are themselves amongst the toy section.

so what would you say is the average price for this. I want to get my hands on it through a relative and I need to know how much it will cost to get it?

I would say around $40 dallors, as it does have two huges in it, so if you count each faction as the eqiuvelnt of one huge pack $40-45 would be correct. Of course if lighsabers are the reason prices are so high normally (compared to D&D), then Hologram Veers could make it go higher. On an unrelated note, my copy is being held hostage untill christmas, so can anyone give me stats for Veers and the AT-ST?

cool, I'll have to put down for probably $80 then given S&H.

The Minis Finder has been lagging quite a bit lately. No Rebels and Imperials, no Force Unleashed, no Hoth pack.

I've sometimes been able to read the stat card off of eBay auctions. I would take a look there in a couple of days.

Here is my good deed for the week:

If you live in Los Angeles, the West Hollywood Target has at least three copies of this, bundled with the Bounty Hunters booster.

Unfortunately, my Target has it bundled with the Bounty Hunters boosters and the $60 price tag. A good deal, probably, but more than I'm willing to spend. Too bad.

From what I'm hearing, every Target is doing this. Probably doing it either because they have aging stock of BH boosters and see this as a good way to get them out the door.

While not so great for the collector-types, it's not too bad for those just getting into the game, as the extra booster gives them a few more figures in one package (though it does jack up the price as you noted).
