JT I figured you would know the answers :)
I though the answers was posted in another area but couldn't find it. Maybe it was in the 2013 Toy fair coverage. What stores will the 3 vintage exclusive ships be at? I thought Target, Amazon and Toys R US? If so please list what stores the following will be at and a time frame of when in 2013.

Biggs X-Wing

Slave 1

TIE Interceptor

Steve covered this in his live notes, but they're on Facebook.

Amazon.com gets Slave I and the TIE Interceptor, while TRU gets Biggs' X-wing and the Republic Gunship, Target gets no vehicles but gets the birth of Vader set.

No dates or prices yet.

Hi-res Hasbro images of each one, loose and boxed, on RS:
http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/High_Resolution_Hasbro_The_Vintage_Collection_Vehicles_151998.asp

The X-wing looks so sharp on the packaged image and so mediocre on the loose image. If this comes looking like that at higher than $40, I'm going to be disappointed.

Slave I looks good except for the gimmicky guns, those should have been swappable.

TIE Interceptor looks same ol' same ol', the POTF2 wings yet again that sag and have ugly seams on the wing hubs. I still have no idea if I'll buy this, depends on the price I guess.

Biggs' X-Wing looks vintage. As in it looks like the '78 toy in all but the actual mold.

I can't help but laugh at how, unlike Kenner, Hasbro retires figures in less than a year, but they use them on vehicle packaging years later. lol

Hopefully the Biggs X-wing will have a better wing-opening mechanism, as the Death Star Trench Run version was more limp than any previous versions. The TIE Interceptor is very similar to the 2009 Legacy Collection version, but with slightly different paint applications. At least it's a little different.
