If they want me to buy another Y-Wing, it's going to take decent sized guns on the front and a droid socket on the back (although the former might overrule the latter in terms of my purchasing one if it comes right down to it).  A new pilot using the Gold Leader body (with a different head and helmet) and a repainted R5 droid would be the most welcome additions, but that's not likely at that price I think.

The TIE Interceptor is going to be a definite for me if it uses the new style (non-battery pack) cockpit mold.  The arena beasts won't get a second look, as I already have all three, and 5 years ago the three of them combined didn't cost 60 bucks.  The only way I can see anyone who was around back then even considering buying that set is if they also included an Orray with a Geonosian picador.  Other than that, it's an easy pass for me.

It would be uber-cool if we got none other than Gold 5, aka "Pops" packed in along with his astromech droid.

Here's hoping for pack-in that doesn't interest me so i wont have to buy it

I hope the pack in at least has a removable helmet with chin strap.

Chances are i am going to go the ebay route anyway with the pack-in like i did with Zev

I'm glad they're coming out with another one. I missed out on the last one TRU had.

I hate it when they put exclusive figures with vehicles. Just gouging people to buy the same vehicle with a figure we don't have yet. >:( Just sell the figure carded.

I have been saying that for years since i am not a vehicle guy. Usually i stand strong and skip it unless its really cool like the Swamp Dragon. I picked up Zev from the snowspeeder on ebay so i plan to do the same with this if it indeed happens.

I was just checking the listing at TRU.com for this ship, and it looks like their "expected arrival date" is now 8/21/2007.  Moved back a little bit from the previous date (June 15 or so, wasn't it?).

Hasbro has released an updated picture of Lt. Lepira and his R5 Astromech droid:



I'll definitely be buying this one.  I like the improvements and I like the pack-in figures.  Plus, the ship and 2 figures seems like a good deal at $30 compared to some other TRU items lately.

I'm as tired of that sculpt as anyone, but overall I like the set a lot and that's a nice looking droid repaint.  I'm in.

Anyone getting the set and not care about the droid?  Let me know because I only want the droid and I'd love to not buy the whole set to get him.

I never got the last release so I'm looking forward to this one.  I agree with Jeff that for $30, this is a good deal.
