Very cool news.  I guess there's wireless internet service in the room.  Gotta love realtime news like that.  The best part?  I don't know which figure to be more excited about!

A Rebel transport eh? So we're talking the cart that ferried the pilots around? Way cool if that's the case. This could be one of those battle packs I buy multiples of, quite a rare thing...

Now if could only get Red Leader, and the skinny lil' bitch version that came with the TRU X-Wing.

It appears that Red Leader is part of the pack.  It looks like Curto left out a comma and that might be leading to some confusion.

Red Leader R5-K6, Rebel Ground Crew, Rebel Transport

Woot!

By transport you mean the Hangar shuttle??

If so, oh HELL'S yeah!

I'll get two of those sets for sure, then hope the Grounds Crew will either come back as a single card or in a mutipack of some kind!

Hasbro is no doubt handing out discs with the powerpoint presentation.  Thank Derryl Depriest for that, since he apparently wants good images of the presentation out there, and not bad photos of a slideshow.

The session probably only just wrapped up, and the reporters from the various sites are probably trying to upload them right now.  They'll probably be online within an hour.  Maybe less.

Well frackety frack frack!  I'm already going to be in line at TRU. (Yes, by  6pm and no later!)

Hmm, maybe I can pick up WiFi?? There is a Panera just down the road a few stores.

Ask an ye shall receive, courtesy of Rebelscum....



We're getting the cart, w00t!!

Seriously this might be the best Battlepack ever in my opinion. It brings hope for other small pieces like the Vehicle Maintenance Energizer, perhaps the Radar Cannon, all sorts of options. Awesome stuff for sure, I want at least 3 of them. :D

Just awesome!  I've been waiting for a Red Leader figure for a long time.  I never even considered that lame pack-in to be a figure at all.  And now we get Garven Dreis PLUS his astromech.  The Rebel Hangar tech and transport are pretty cool too.

Now let's get things going for Gold 5 to be the next Rebel pilot figure!  ;D
