I had a Gasgano in my youth. I lost 2 of his arms quite quickly and eventually the whole figure. He's in my basement somewhere/ :lol:

I have two of him, one carded and one loose. I can remember a notorious day back in the year 2000 when I walked into my Target searching for the Holographic Darth Sidious wave and saw nothing but a wall of Gasganos and Darth Mauls. No kidding, there must have been no fewer than a dozen Gasganos on those pegs that day. And that was back when Target allocated more peg space to STAR WARS figures than they do now. :lol:

For those that don't want to buy this set just for the flags, I recreated them for you to download and customize at your leisure. I will do the other flag for Anakin, Sebulba and Mawhonic as they are released.

Thanks! :wink:

I'm still getting the set anyways, but that's a very nice gesture. I'm certain some of us will really appreciate it.

Thanks Jayson, I'm sure many customizers will put those to good use.

I'd be interested to see sewn/knitted versions of these flags that actually looked and behaved kind of like the flags seen in the movie. Fabric flags---no matter how tiny---always look better than paper or plastic and add realism to a diorama.

It looks like these are starting to show up at brick and mortar TRU's. At least in New York as somebody reported over at the Rebelscum forums.
I will be getting this set, it looks like we should be able to complete all the pod racers in the next few weeks :D

Really? That's good news.

I'll be stopping by my local TRU sometime tomorrow after breakfast or lunch. It'd be sweet if I could find the Podracers and go ahead and buy them. That'd be one less item out of the way for when Jan. 30th hits. And at $26.99 it's probably the most expensive single item I'm planning on getting. Everything else costs less than twenty-six bucks each.

found these at my TRU...grabbed one for me and another for a friend....they had 8 on the shelf.....even though I have these carded, something about all of them being together (and the flags) and the price was decent too.

They had everything at my local TRU *except* the Podracers. I looked all over for them, but they were nowhere to be found. They had already sold out or hadn't been put on the shelves just yet.

I doubt they sold out, there on their way...at my TRU the Podracers were the only new thing....SKU#653569715481, just in case you want them to check for you

Thanks for that info! It might come in quite handy! :wink: You should have seen my TRU...they had a little of everything but the Podracers. It was visual overload.

Scored these bad boys on Saturday evening for $26.99 plus tax. There were roughly a dozen of them on the shelf, most of which were gone when I revisited TRU yesterday. Even though they have repacks in them, they're proving pretty popular seeing as they're podrace aliens and not your typical gag-inducing pegwarmers we've seen a hundred times before. If you haven't gotten yours yet, I suggest hitting TRU pretty soon. They're not shelfwarming, at least not around here.

I haven't seen these yet, neither of the TRU stores in my area that set up their big displays at the front of the store put these out, or dedicated space to them (yet).

:wink:
