Should be out soon (I don't know for sure) - probably in time for the Fall set which is sometime in June.

And no, there are no pack in figures - if there were, the price point would be closer to $30 like the TRU exclusive Starfighters.

Guess I'll have to pick up the H&V Mace in order to have someone to pilot this thing.

H&V Mace does not fit in the fighter.  Try another on. :-\

Damn! Do you know of any Maces that do fit in the fighter and are easily available?

I do not have all the Mace (s) out there but I have about 4 of them and only the jedi council one with flexible skirt and bendable knees fits into Anakin/Obi-Wan's starfighters.

I say it is time to get creative with pilot obi-wan and some Mace parts. ;D

Does anyone actually find it surprising that despite there being a Mace Windu JSF coming out, there will (apparently) be no Mace Windu figure currently available at retail to pilot it?  Hasbro, by and large, have a history in recent memory of making ships that have no corresponding pilot figure available to sit in them. 

Just take a look at the list:

-Anakin's JSF (Clone Wars): CW Anakin Pilot will not fit
-Plo Koon's JSF (ROTS):  ROTS Plo Koon won't fit without the skirt being cut
-Anakin's JSF (ROTS):  ROTS Anakin #2 will fit, but not well
-Obi-Wan's JSF (ROTS):  Obi-Wan Pilot came out 4-6 months after the ship
-Grievous' Wheel Bike:  It even comes with a Grievous and that one doesn't fit

And lest we forget the pinnacle of non-figure interactions, that being the AOTC/Saga 2002 Anakin and Zam Wesell Airspeeders, neither of which could hold their respective pilots available at that time. 

At the very least it looks as if the Darth Vader JSF, EU it may be, will have a Vader at retail who can sit in it (the Hoth/Cloud City/500th version), but with an AAT coming out, I have to wonder where the Battle Droids and/or the Super Battle Droids are to pilot and man it are at.  Sure, the  BDs have never been really fast sellers, but to put out a vehicle with no troops to man it is ridiculous.

I'm hoping that this whole "Mace's Squadron" thing at least comes with a Mace who can sit down, but knowing Hasbro, it'll be the ROTS version again, meaning a lot of kids or more recently beginning collectors won't have anybody to sit in the cockpit of the JSF.   ::)

And also:

-POTJ AT-ST: No AT-ST Driver available at the time

I noticed that there is a new little "Star Wars TSC Product Catalog" that was included in the latest Unleashed figures I picked up this past weekend (the WM Exclusive ones).  They did have the Mace Windu JSF pictured in there, but no word on when this is being released.

Isn't there supposed to be a battle pack call Mace Windu's Squadron?  I'm not sure if that is true or rumored but maybe there is a pilot style figure in that?
