3x Geonosian, 1x Rebel Sled is the case pack ratio I have seen reported around the 'net and was what I found when I saw them at my local TRU last week.

Thanks Jeff - okay so I guess I found a complete case.

I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I need one of them to open. I already have two from the Scramble on Yavin BPs that I opened, so I guess it really depends on whether or not the head on this release is different from the original one.

Anyone know if the new RFT figure and this tech figure are swappable? If it is, then that might be motivation alone for me to get one or two to open so I can add some variety to my RFTs.

You may be right, but my gut (and I admit my gut is very "collector" biased) says more collectors will want to army build the sled than kids will want the bug and speeder.

I agree with Nick.  I think we'll wind up seeing Geo Speeders laying about, and no chance of more sleds.  I have enough I'll be happy but I would've liked to have bought one I think.  I doubt I'll have the option to do that though, at this case ratio.  At least make it even, but don't dick the masses over by making it 1-per.

Also, not Vintage, but close...

Legends Spacetrooper

both of those were for the MOC collection...

That explains why I didn't see the Rebel Tech and Transport today.

I got vintage AOTC  Clone Trooper (only one left) and a Snowtrooper for TRU's 2 for $10.99 special. In typical TRU fashion, I find one figure then debate for 30 minutes on which other figure I'm gonna settle for. I even looked at Marvel, Thor, Captain America, GI JOE and  even Spiderman, and those selections were as dismal...actually Marvel Universe was worse...one Winter Soldier was the only thing left.

There's some 3 3/4" $40 generic army transport plane out on their army/pirate/western/police/fire area. It's sad when the most interesting new item at the store is in the generic section.

I reminded myself why I hadn't been there in over 2 months. To try again later in the week or let it go...I don't know. (When do they restock?)

I picked up some stuff at TRU
Y-Wing
Republic Commandos (I think I like the 2006 set better)

They also had the TFU set but only 1 that my buddy found behind some stuff.

Picked up some stuff today.  It was all SOTDS stuff, and nothing that was proper TVC:  TFU 5-pack, Rebel Transport Speeder with Rebel Ground Crew, and a SL Spacetrooper.

Picked up the last two Cloud Car Pilots at my local TRU. Never bought the figure last year for whatever reason and the 2 for $10.99 was the perfect excuse to finally snag some.

Noticed the other day that my K-Mart stores have done resets, and put out a lot of new figures...  Like 3 cases of wave 6, Vinty B-Wings, restocked the CW pegs (nothing great, but they were fairly bare).  Also the new Legends that are new and worse than ever!
