I agree.  Obviously it is not aimed at collectors but parents or gift seekers.  It's a decent looking pack really.  I doubt it will be an epic "fail" really.  LOL.

I think a lot depends on price...  If this is $30, I think it would fly off shelves quickly.  I doubt that of course, but I'm just saying that this could be as popular as anything new if it's priced right.

If it's less than $50 I'll be a little surprised. $20 each for each ship, $8 each for each figure. That's 56 there at least.

So either Hasbro will give a slight discount at $50, keep it at around the same price $55, or look to make a little more $60.

We'll see, but again doesn't matter to me since I'm not buying it.

Aahh! ... these Obi-Wan and Grievous figures are ALWAYS repacked! It's an impressive set as a Christmas gift - two vehicles and two figures? Great! But as a collector's item, well ...  :(

Scum has a new update on this tonight. Hi-Res Package art, but not much detail about where or when to look for this.

I think I'm going to have to submit this as a question to Hasbro for the full poop.

Thanks Jayson.

Hello, eBay!

Ugh, the shipping on this thing is going to be brutal...

I think this would make a good Christmas seller.  ;D

Anyone have any idea when this is coming out? I was hoping it would be before X-Mas this year but I've yet to hear any overseas reports that these have been spotted. I have not seen one on eBay yet either...

I asked Adam Pawlus over at Galactic Hunter about this item and what it is and when we will ever see it, if at all. Here's what he had to say:

"International exclusive. No release has been specified as Hasbro has never announced it.  For all we know we got a look at an International concept that made it to the packaged stage and did not get picked up-- this has happened before.  Hasbro does not let us know about international exclusives, particularly when they perceive the items to be mere repacks."

So I'm not holding my breath on this one.

Yeah, it's definitely just a UK/European exclusive at this point and all signs are that it's going to stay that way.  If you really want one, try Toy Palace (Germany) or find a Euro-dude to help you get one.

Wow, thanks for that link! I had no idea this was even available yet. After the Euro to dollar conversion it looks like this is about $115, not including shipping. Yikes!

Still, it's great to have some confirmation it is out there. I am definitely ordering one...someday.

Well, I finally broke down and ordered this thing today off Toy Palace. It's been at the top of my list for nearly a year, and after months of diligent searching I feel confident I will never see this on eBay. That alone is practically unbelievable.

I got a small discount as a new customer, but it's still brutal financially. The shipping alone is half as much as the item itself. Still, as a diehard completist this was a mandatory pick-up.

Will bump the thread when it arrives, but it will likely be awhile.

Well, that was damn fast. My Toy Palace order actually arrived Saturday, just 8 days after I placed it.

I love this thing, just for the sheer weirdness. Not only is Obi-Wan's fighter a pre-TCW sculpt, Grievous' fighter appears to be too. I didn't notice that from previous pictures.

I am now officially, 100% caught up with everything Clone Wars related with the exception of the Boba Fett UBP which has not arrived here in town yet.  ;D
