Id buy a rerelease as well. I think Hasbro owes us this one since so many don't have one.
I remember my dream now.

I know that there are so many petitions out there, but I think that we should have a petition for it's re-release...(I am not saying I should be in charge)...but I definitely think that we have something that we could do!!!  If they were priced right I would buy 2!!!

Yes, a petition.  This is something Hasbro could throw in one of these new TRU 4 packs.

Hmmm... that is an awesome idea Spuffy on including the Eopie in a TRU 4-pk.  I really like that.  How's this for an idea; I bet it would sell extremely well...

FIGURES

- Graxol
- red Twilek
- Chok, repainted Barada w/ new head
- Ishi Tib head/hands on POTJ Plo Koon body

ACCESSORIES

- Eopie
- large Podrace flag
- Pit Droid from European bonus pks
- refueling equipment

 :P

That would be awesome, Chewie.  I was trying to think of a 'theme' myself, but couldn't.  They could maybe also squeeze in some of the missing engine parts from that long lost E1 Queen's Starship accessory pack, remember?

wasn't there a 'hyperdrive' in one of the later accessory packs?

Most definitely.  I say that Hasbro should re-release anything that didn't ever find it's way to the majority of the collectors that wanted it.

I was lucky enough to have a buddy find me a MIMSB U.S. version of the Eopie in a small toy shop in Japan when he was out there for a business trip about 5 or 6 months ago.  The best part was that it was only $14!!!   :o  (when it was going on eBay for generally $100-$125).  Still owe Jared a HUGE thanks for that incredible score!   8)

As for what a re-release might come with...  Hmm...  I might be inclined to say just the original Qui-Gonn for the figure completists that would still want this version of him (even though it's very similar to the POTJ figure).  But I agree that the better idea would be to throw it in one of the TRU 4-packs, with the same Qui-Gonn, a Shmi, Kitster, Hyperdrive, and some other random figure...  I definitely pick up a couple of those.

All by it's lonesome on a Deluxe card would certainly work just fine as well!   8)

If Hasbro wanted to do a Pod Race Hanger type of set, they could probably kit bash a Nikto Pod Mechanic, or an Ishi Tib one, a Twilek massuess, something like that.   ;D
