Picked up the Pirate Tank at my local Target in Acworth, Georgia (north west metro Atlanta). They had about 4x left, plus tons of Y-wings, Corporate Alliance Tank Droids, and Echo Base sets.

Picked up the Republic Tank at a local Target, two left after I picked mine up.

Missed it the first because I was hoping it's go on sale, like the TIE Crawler, then all of a sudden it disappeared.

Also saw the CW Pirate Tank. Still up in the air about this one. I was thinking the Weequay's would look cool on Jabba's Sailbarge, but after looking at the figures, they just don't seem to mix well with the other figures on Jabba's barge.

Anyway, that set was $40.

Also saw the CW Y-Wing and Echo Base.

This Target, the north east store, didn't have much LEGO out. Guess they did some spring cleaning to make room for the new summer sets.

Yeah when I saw these the shelves at mine were pretty bare. It was weird because the new sets were kind of hidden at the end of the aisle facing away from the main walkway through the store and separate from the rest of the Lego.

That's funny, because that's similar to where I saw the Republic & Pirate tanks, too.

Went down the main LEGO aisle, which they had moved to the beginning of the toy section, and saw a few new sets but mostly empty space.

Checked to see if there were any tags for the Rep Tank and didn't see one, so figured they hadn't gotten the set in yet, so I went over to check the video game section which is across a main aisle from the toy section at this Target.

After the games I was heading toward the DVDs down the aisle I crossed to go from the toys to the video games when I passed the end cap of the LEGO aisle and saw the two tank sets.

Like I said, this is a main aisle that connects toys, electronics, dvds, etc., but still, I was surprised to see those sets on an endcap instead of in the regular LEGO aisle with the bulk of the sets, especially since they had plenty of space for them there.
