There should be at least 7 figures in it, the 3 POTF2 band pairs and the TAC wave 4 guy. But for the price, that's not enough. I wonder if they'd sink as low as to include a Jabba and his throne.

I would think they would include the Jabba's Dancers also, but you never know. Would be nice to get something new, but I don't see that happening. With the release of Umpass-Stay this year, I would how long it will be before we see Ak Rev the last of the Band?

This is great news! I never got any of the Rebo band so this is exciting. It also presents the possibility of Ak-rev and Yarna, maybe not in this set but in the future to go along with it.  :)

I hope it does not turn out to be like the Arena pack with all straight repacks. I would like better paint scenes on old molds with 1 or 2 new figures to make it a worthwhile 'upgrade".
Yarna would be perfect here!

This sounds like a cool set. Hopefully it actually turns out to be cool.

The "other site" has a pic of the back of the box I believe.  It has all the Max Rebo Band Pairs, all 3 dancers, Rappertunie (sp?), and Han in the Carbonite Block (which I can't rell if he comes with the pack or not?  Oh, and it looked like Yuzzum has his intrument.

I guess it would help to include the link  http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/The_Bands_All_Here_107570.asp

Nope, not the back of the box, just a picture from their photo archive (scroll to the bottom).  ;)

Scum does have an inside ear as to what's going on with Hasbro for the most part so I'm banking on these figs to all be included in the "Battlepack" even though it seems a bit busy in there.  I say all's fair except for the dancers and Solo in carbonite.

I expect it to be a complete repack of 6-10 figures with only one or two completely new sculpts so that those of us with all the old figures are completely hosed.

That would be good out Hasbro for you. Plus I could see it happen.

I'm not so sure about this set. As much as I like aliens, this set sounds like it may be expensive and contain figures that are not too great. I'll make my final judgement after I see actual product pics.

Wow..Scum was right...go figure.

I really dig how you can connect the boxes to recreate the "The scene"  Not quite a playset, but it's nice..

I'm hoping that WM puts this and all of their exclusives on their website so I can do the site to store thing.  Worked perfect for me on the Transformer 5pack.

I was hoping for at least one new figure, Ak-Rev would have been the logical choice. At this point i am thinking a pass.

One good thing, is knowing Wal-mart these sets will most likely be around $20 each. Not bad for 5 aliens and would make for some good fodder. I don't know if I'll get the dancer set, but the other I will most likely pick up as I need two of the figures from that set for customs.

I was lucky enough to get all the Rebo band sets back in 1998, so I'll be skipping these.

The Rebo Band pairs are something I missed out on the first time around, and I've kind of been waiting to see if they would see a resculpt or re-release before I went to ebay, so I'm glad these are on the way.  Hopefully they won't be too hard to get a hold of, WM exclusives seem to be a bit hit or miss around here sometimes....and I've always wanted to get the Rebo Band.
