It might be a good excuse to recycle the POTF2 Endor bunker.

Hasbro has been talking about trying to work the speeder bikes into the battle pack concept.  This seems like the perfect vehicle for that idea.

So, if TRU gets the Mega Geonosis Set, and Target gets the Mega Hoth set, does that mean that Wal-Mart gets the Mega Endor set?

Throw in some Ewok Repaints

Doesn't WM get the Jabba's Band set? Maybe the Endor set will be K-Mart. :-X

Yes, but Hasbro already said those were just 2 separate 5-figure battle packs and not a "Ultimate Battle Pack" like the Geonosis and Hoth sets...

my guess is that the endor set will include the bunker and a couple of extra stormies or speederbikes.
School has been on strike all month. so much for the summer job I was hoping to get D:

Do you guys really think the AT-ST Driver is still coming with this set, or is the one we got the early pic of (on the prior page) actually the one from the Hoth set?  If there's not AT-ST in the Endor set, it seems that'd make the most sense that there's no Driver for it in this one, right?

That said, I'm assuming we'll see the Bunker, two Speederbikes, and one Ewok Glider.  They haven't made the Catapult in the modern line, have they?  While I'd love to get one of those, Hasbro's definitely not going to be making a new one just for this set.

And considering the crazy number of figures in the Hoth set, I'm guessing this one will be similar, and include Paploo (on the Bike), 2 Scouttroopers (1 on the Bike), 2 Stormtroopers, Chewie, Han, and an Endor Trooper (maybe the exclusive one from the ROTJ Tin set).  I'd rather not get another Chewie in this set (another Ewok would be better), but I guess it's included based on the pix we got.

That'd be pretty cool to get all that stuff in there for a price similar to the Target Hoth set.  I rather doubt it though, unless this set is going to Target as well (hopefully).  Can't wait to find out!

The only reason I think there is a AT-ST driver in this set still is due to the green tinge of the jumpsuit.  Might just be the lighting that the photog took though too

That'd be kinda lame if they stuck an AT-ST into this set as well, after it's inclusion in the Hoth set already.  Otherwise, I can't really see Hasbro sticking a random AT-ST Driver into this set as a random Imperial army builder (by himself), apart from his usual rig.  I'd rather see the Bunker, Glider and a couple Speederbikes in this set, like I was speculating on earlier.

Of course, with Chewie in this set, I guess it's possible they could try to set up the scene where he's popping out of the AT-ST, in front of Han at the Bunker, instead of the Driver in there, though that'd be even more lame.  Again, not what I'd want to see here, so hopefully that's not the case.

I am betting there will be some kind of large new tooling like the equivalent of a gun turret. I doubt we will see the bunker but I feel the chance of seeing Ewok military expansion is good.

Here is my guess:
New Ewok Catapult Ewok Warrior
Redecoed' Glider with Ewok Warrior
Han Redeco
Chewie
VOTC ScoutTrooper
Stormie
Speederbike
AT-ST Driver
AT-ST again

I'd be happy with another AT-ST packed into the Endor set, just because I'm a sucker for walkers.  I've got more than enough speederbikes and not that big of a fan of Ewok stuff.  Even though I do have enought AT-ST's, I've been considering upgunning one so another in my collection wouldn't be a bad thing.

Not to me. I still need 26 of this figure.

Then again, if I had my quota, I might be in the same camp.
