TRU "Battle of Endor" Pilot 4-packs
« on: August 13, 2010, 02:39 PM »
The Hasbro panel revealed two new TRU exclusive Endor Pilot 4-packs planned for January 2011.  Each set should include 1x Imperial Pilot, 2x Rebel Pilots, and 1x Astromech/droid.

No links/pics to share yet, but they were shown in the panel and should be in the booth later today so pics will be plentiful by night I'd think.

Sounds like Grizz Frix was one of the Pilots

I thought the Pilot sets looked amazing too, and I'm real curious who the Impy's are?  Could we get Maarek Steele?  The Imperial ace from TIE Fighter?  They have given us Keyan Farlander now, so why not Steele from the equally popular game?  I'm also curious who the other Rebels are other than Grizz Frix.  "Ace" Azzameen perhaps?

Copying that from the C5 thread...

Basically though, these have me stoked.  The Imp's didn't look like Clones, and other than Grizz I'm curious who we'll be seeing.  I truly hope some of my predictions are spot-on because those are some pilots I've always wanted and planned on doing customs of anyway.

Great sets!

Rebel wise, I'd like to see Wedge (since his basic figure is being delayed 2 years by the sound of it ::) ), a repack of Arvel Crynyd (since I never even saw his A-Wing exclusive in stores) and maybe a new version of the Asian guy from the POTF2 cinema scene that they called Arvel. Grizz Fixx should be awesome.

Imperial wise, I don't really care. As long as we get some normal pilots I'm happy.

Pretty cool lineup.  2 x Imperial Pilots, 1 x B-Wing pilot (red fightsuit), Grizz Frix, 1 x A-Wing pilot (green flightsuit), 1 x Y-Wing pilot (grey flightsuit) and 2 x astromechs.  I like it a lot.

I'm tired of pilots, but it's nice they made Grizz.

Pic from JediInsider. Kind of disappointing now that I actually see pics. I think I'm only interested in Grizz and the TIE pilots honestly.

That is Grey Leader in the bottom pack...no?  I know most EU calls him Horton Salm...but it sure looks like him

I think Grizz is the only one I've ever heard of before...

Are the droids the new "corrected" size?

The one that comes with Grizz does have the pop up periscope, which the Bar-2D2 also has....

Looks like the VOTC R2 mold to me.

Love the sets...  Was hoping for less Cloney TIE Pilots, but that's fine.  Nice to get the Y-Winger sculpt knocked out finally, just too bad it's stuck in a set only.  I'd lik eto get extras but that looks less likely now.

No clue who the A-Wing and B-Wing pilots are at all either Jeff...  The Y-Winger is the, "I'm hiiiiiiiiit" guy who flies into the Destroyer.  Besides he and Frix, I haven't a foggy clue who the others are.  Nice generic pilots are always good though.

I'm liking these. Don't really need more TIE pilots, but love Grizz and Grey Leader!
