Now I have remembered which is that transport from Hoth. Itīs the vehicle we saw in wotc minis from TFU expansion set, "Rebel troop cart".

This vehicle should arrive on shelves, with a pilot and seats for 4 action figures, or it must be the vehicle for a battle pack called "Hoth Rebel Hangar".

Yeah, if this one does well (can't see how it won't) we could probably expect an Echo base version with the troop transport.  That would be a great time to get Echo base troopers with the brown vest, baseball caps and black boots.

I hope you're onto something Daigo-Bah, an echo base version would be excellent.

I agree, I'd really like to see an Echo base pack like this as well.

Any way to get the generic Rebels in baseball caps is welcome. I'd be all over those. ;D

I can't wait to buy tons of these. This is by far the best battle pack ever. :)

Hasbro really made this pack look good. Can't wait for it to hit the shelves.

I want more than one of the cart and driver, but I don't need more than one of the droid and pilot... at $22.99 plus tax, there's no way I'm buying multiples unless they put out a second version someday that is just two carts - which isn't going to happen.

I feel the same way.  I'd want a couple of the cart, but as much I love the droid and have been waiting for him forever, I only need one.  Maybe they'll do another set with a different droid/pilot later on.

That would be a great idea... running changes on the pilot and droids. Hasbro could already repack it with Lepira/droid, Luke/R2, Biggs/droid, Dutch/droid, and give us new pilots as well. I believe there were a couple droids in the droid 5-packs a few years back that were from the Battle of Yavin.

If I decide to go for a squad of nine of the Rebel Techs I'll be able to to use two of the Pilots and two of the Droids, no sweat, leaving me with seven extra of each. I probably wouldn't keep all of the sleds either. However, I'm confident I could find homes for all my extras though.
