Ryan we may be able to help each other. I'm getting 10 of those Pilots packs and don't need the TIE Pilots. They are yours if you like. And I'll only charge you 1/3 of the pack cost. We'lltalk when theyco out.

The Rebel Pilots set is awesome.

Okay, but is there info on who they are?

From RS:

Good News:
Rebel Pilots #3 = John D. Brannon (Red 4, Battle of Yavin), Jake Farrell (as Green Squadron Commander, Battle of Endor), and Shira Brie (EU Pilot, ?).

Bad News:
Due to delays, this last wave of EVO packs won't be available everywhere (aka they will probably be exclusives).  :-\


I think it's cool to see Red 4/John D make the list.  If the Wedge rumors hold out for 2009 also, we'll have had new figures for Red Leader, Red 2, Red 3, Red 4, and Red 5 in the past 3 years.  Does that mean Porkin's will be next?  :D

 :)

Thanks for the recap, Ryan! John D! Whoohoo!

The Evo sets look really good.  A little bit bummed that they are WM exclusives, which tend to be hit or miss around here.

I'll probably only pick up the Rebel set. I'm on the fence about the Imperial Pilots set. The 08 set sucked but that TIE pilot is damn cool. Of course I'll probably end up breaking and getting all 3. ::)

If you get more than Ryan needs, and/or anyone else is selling TIE Pilots for 1/3rd of the set, please contact me.  I'm in the same boat as him, but I'm probably looking for about 24 of them.

I'm in the same boat as Ryan and Rob, but I'l only picking up about 9.

Love the sets though. Too bad they're WM exclusives.

Will only get two sets of the Rebel Pilots, but might pick up 9 of each of the others. That Imperial Commando looks pretty interesting.

Thankfully I am only interseted in getting 1 of the Rebel Pilot EVO sets so my dip from the available pool of toys will be very small.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

I'll get a set of each of these. Decent sets and the value is there, IMO.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I know WM, exclusives are a real bitch to get. although I had zero problems with the Gunship and A-Wing.
I am down for x3 Rebels, x2 Clones and x2 Imperials. WM has some sweet exclusives this year!

WM exclusives are really spotty here as well.  Some things (Droid Factory sets) are easy to find, and some (A-Wing) never show up - and everything in between.  As long as these are as plentiful as their droid factory packs, I'll be happy.  I'll just get one each of the Rebels and Commandos, but I'd like to get several of the TIE Pilots so I might get more of that set if possible.

Niner (Omega), Ordo (Null) and Imperial Commando!.... Welcome to my RC Army!!! :o

Finally a RC with articulated legs  8) but I have to check his strange Sev's like gear, dunno if its accurate, I thought it was totally like Boss. 

I like the 3 evo packs its a must.

that explain his Sev's like gear, but the Color?, I have to check the RC forum, cuz we RC fans are cofused by this, we also asked the Artist of the Art Cover for Omega Targets, he even dont know much about it wich adds the confusion.  :-\

But I think things has been clarified more now, I just dont remember.

Thanks again Jason!  ;)
