I love the bike...  It's one of the cooler designs, and it's new, so color me tickled to buy that set.  I'll make the Mando a little more realistic I think, and call that one a worthy purchase.  I'm even more looking forward to Cad Bane though.  I didn't buy a carded Bane, and boy howdy am I glad I did not.

Looks like Yak has a sneak peek at a Freeco Speeder repack, this time with a Cold Weather 501st Grunt instead of Obi-Wan.  

Back of the box shows a AST repack too, this time with a Pilot TX-20 droid instead of the regular Battle Droid.

Was just checking that out...am I right in thinking these are straight re-packs? The "clone trooper" looks just like the previously carded Snow Ops Rex to me.

I guess it's a shrewd marketing gimmick, but I'd rather have something new.

Wonder if these will comprise the Fall Deluxe Wave 2?

Nope, the helmet deco is totally different, no blue flashes on the shoulder, no holsters. Also, no stripe on the edge of the new soft goods kama.  :)

I was wondering where the grunt was coming from, and now I'm very glad I've held off on the speeder.  Slam dunk for me.

That trooper/Freeco set is awesome. It's perfect for me, because I wanted additional Freeco Bikes and some troopers for Rex. As thought the soft goods kama wasn't enough, the trooper appears to have the new, larger rifle sculpt.

I must have missed this when originally posted, but that is very cool.  "Trespass" is still one of my favorite CW episodes, and I'm glad we're still getting more new from it.  I picked up the last Freeco set, and don't regret it for a second.  Really nice vehicle, and the Obi-Wan isn't too bad either with the soft goods and more articulation in the legs.  I've really been enjoying the figure and vehicle line a lot, too bad it doesn't cover the entire saga, but the CW offerings have been pretty good.

I saw last night that the latest wave of these has officially been spotted (and purchased) at a brick and mortar TRU in or around St. Louis. (Chewie - was that you who posted this @ Yakface?)

To my knowledge, this is the first confirmation I have seen of them actually being put out on the shelves anywhere.

The 1 TRU here that is actually cool enough to stock new SW toys right now gets a truck in today, so I will be calling them up shortly to check stock on these. Luckily all 3 are on the website so I can pull item #'s.

These hit in good numbers a few days ago in St. Louis TRU stores.

I saw your pics of Cad Bane...those were really sweet. You're right, he does look 100% better. I have high hopes for the Plo Koon that comes with his bike as well.

I found these at TRU today and nabbed them all with the BOGO offer.  I like them a lot - especially the Naboo Skiff.  Bane and Plo are definitely worthwhile purchases.  I never gave Bane a thought until I saw Chewie's pics, and then had him in my hand.

The only thing that strikes me odd about the new Cad Bane figure is that his coat tails are missing!
