Looks like the Luke body, but no lightsaber hilt, but the hole for it is still on the belt.  Not a huge gripe and I'm looking forward to putting one or two of these in my Rebel Hangar set-up.

Low and behold, I found one this morning at Target. Yeah, pretty disappointed in the Luke Body. I was planing to cannibalize the extra bodies I'll have to make the pilots I made utilizing extra Luke bodies taller. Now I'll have to get some extra Squidhead pilots.  :P

Case break down is kind of crappy too:

1 x Yavin
1 x AT-TE Squad
2 x Jabba

And I can confirm that there is no light saber.

Luke?  Greeeeaaattt...  ::)

I'll customize one as well, to make a taller pilot, but this is disappointing considering better sculpts could have been used.  Red Leader was quite clearly taller than Luke, so this is a crummy corner cut, but in theory an easy enough custom to fix too.

Since it seemed like the parts swap is compatible, I took the liberty to swap parts with Vakil. As suspected by others, the neck joint on Vakil is a tad larger, but Garven's head does fit, albeit snugly. The hand swap is easy-peasy. The Vakil head on the Garven/Luke body is loose, but shoving tissue up there will fix it right up.

Dude Garven's head fits that ball joint?  Jeez he must have a humungus melon.  I think I just wait for the next Rebel III evo set and swap that.
AH the infamous Anton tissue shoving customization method.  I still owe you royalties on that one   :P

Thanks Jayson, I hadn't realized they were all the same - sort of unhelpful when you're looking for the new ones, but I guess it makes sense.

Luckily I found one at the second Target I walked into this evening.


It did ring up $23.99 but they hadn't changed the shelf tag yet, so I got to keep my $2.00

Are these Target exclusives?  I can't recall.

nope, general releases Matt.

I picked up a third Reb Pilots comic pack tonight to exchange parts with an extra Red Leader figure.

That is outstanding looking Jayson...  I'm down for at least 3 I'm pretty sure.  More if I can get more techies and sleds alone.  Hopefully these don't turn out being hard to find because I swear that Endor set wasn't widely available around here.  Most BP's have been a little scarce in the last year actually.

Thank JJ, this is definitely one of the coolest packs to come out in a while. I'm half tempted to set one up with a bunch of TIE Fighter Pilots as well.

Great pic Jayson.  I'm really looking forward to this one as well, and hope that I'm able to grab a couple.  I agree with Jesse, the Battle Packs seem to go pretty quickly around here anymore as well.  I think I've seen the Falcon Training one more than others, but ones like the Endor one you mentioned did go pretty quickly locally as well.  I checked our closest Target yesterday for the Yavin/Jabba ones, but there weren't any on the shelves at all (and the grey sticker was present as well).
