Well, there have been rumors the past couple years of a re-release of the Max Rebo band members, so hopefully this is what that is.  I've always wanted a Max Rebo band set, even back from the vintage/childhood days, but I've been holding out for a re-release.  Hopefully this is true, and on the way this year (and not too tough to get a hold of).

I will happily buy this set. Here's hoping for a more vintage style sy snootles and also Ak-Rev

I'm all in for Max Rebo and the band.  I never got the older releases (in between my SW collecting days).  I'd even take a straight repack (sorry for those who don't want them).

I'm down for a boxed set of these guys.  I never had the vintage set and I think I'm missing one of the WM 2packs so this will be nice, but they'd better ditch the "BattlePack" idea unless they're going up against the Modal Nodes or something.

I was thinking the same thing, maybe it's a battle of the bands.

My guess is that they'll have Ak-Rev with the other half of the drum that's coming with Umpass-stay.

Nah... I don't think there'll be anything new in there - other than deco maybe.

Hasbro says you can just piece together 2 drums from the regular Ak-Rev packs to make the whole drum.

Definitely better than buying the battle pack - so hopefully they don't include anything that I just have to have.

Hmm, well I can't really understand the language, but 4inches.de has an announcement on this and it's looking like the 1998 Rebo Band pairs, the Jabbas Dancers and Rappertunie.

I will gladly buy this since I don't have any of the original sets.

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.
