I'm definitely in on the underwater speeder, as it actually was int he toon...  The new dropship is interesting and after I see how figures hook up to it (and how many can) I may be more into it as well...  The one Ani comes with I think will be an easy pass.

How many small speeders do the Republic really need?  They're basically all the same, and so yeah, I'm unimpressed by that one then...  At least one could maybe bs the dropship one as kind of a means of rapidly deploying a team of scouts or something.  Give it some purpose to fit into a "real scenario".  I kind of saw the scout speeder thing as like a swoop/bike of sorts that helps scouts out with sensors and whatnot.  Like bascically a bigger, more accurate scanning device ala the little portable Han is lugging around, and that maybe tags along with a patrol or something.

Anakin's I'm just having a harder and harder time saying, "Well that's another aerial scout thing"...  I think that'll save me $20.

They could do some interesting things if they invented new vehicles for the Class 2 scale. Though, at $30 now, they'd have to be really interesting...

Seconded...  N1 update has me interested, and I liked the Vulture enough that I'll rebuy it in TPM colors (once though, no more army building a 3-ship-flight like I wanted to do, or even one to have as a ship and one in walking mode).

Anything else, well it'd better be special.

And Jedi Fighters that are pretty colors don't rank as "special".

Only as part of the full case assortment though, right? Last time I checked it was not available individually.

Yeah, the Attack Recon Fighter and Republic Assault Submarine sets are part of Wave 2 apparently, and these are hitting now in the UK.

Since these are undoubtedly slated for a Toy Fair reveal in NYC, very low chances we will see these beforehand stateside, I would think. :(

No word on ETA/Wave info for the Republic Dropship yet, that I am aware...

Kind of appropriate for the line in general. :)

Any US sightings of these (or the new DVD 2-packs) yet?


I finally saw these at my local store...$16 a piece...Walmart sucks

Do you think Walmart sucks in general or because of the $16 price point?  Deluxe has been $16-17 at Target and Wal-Mart around here for a long time (and $20 at TRU).  I'm pleasantly surprised that their exclusives are only $16.  I grabbed Keeli a while back, but have yet to see Buzz.

No because it took them until February to put them out...their whole inventory and clearance issues suck major league ass.    $16 was cheap I thought...I was expecting $20

I hit five different Targets today and found ZERO SOTDS Deluxe sets - anywhere.

It's incredible to me how suddenly these things disappeared.

They'll soon be back... and in greater numbers.

Honestly I'd have dug that AT-RT for cheap, but I'm so AT-RT'd out now. :(
