TRU Deluxe Yavin IV Tech and Sled
« on: August 13, 2010, 02:45 PM »
Hooray for Hasbro listening to us and getting this thing back out there.  I'm defintely picking up another 1-2 of these. :)

Sounds like it will be a TRU exclusive DLX set this Winter (like the Speeder Bike and STAP set were last year).

On one hand, it'll sort of suck if these have the $19 price like the STAP and Speeder Bike sets did, but on the other hand, that's cheaper than the current eBay price for the Tech and Sled.

I just want more Techs. I won't need the sled. I was hoping these would be single carded figs.

Still, glad to know they are making their way back out.

I'm geeked.  I'll try to get my total tally on these to 10 I think, which I've got 4 or 5 so 10's attainable I guess.  I may go shorter on these though, if the price is pretty high.  I keep hoping (pipe dream) TRU puts them in at a lower price.

GREAT idea for a rerelease, as I only saw that Battle Pack once in the wild. I don't really have room for another sled, but I'll take one in order to get another Rebel Tech. Hopefully the headsculpt is different from the original, but I'm not counting on that.

Price is definitely going to suck though. I paid $20 for the original Battle Pack, and it sounds like this is going to basically cost the same.

Agreed that compared to the value of the previous release we aren't making out great if these are $20, but I still think that's a better deal than getting a Battledroid and STAP for that price....

I saw some pics on Jediinsider and the slideshow hinted that this might be one of a couple vehicles released...   I think...

Edit: The presentation says (emphasis mine) "Saga Vehicles with figure"...

I managed to pick up four the first time through... I'd like at least two more.

Bonus if they could give him a new head sculpt.

I grabbed two the first time around, and I hope to get a couple more when these are released.  A little pricey maybe, but nice to get it out there again.

I'm upset this is a TRU exclusive!! There's no TRU in my area... :'(

Anyways, after such a positive release the first time, I would have thought that Hasbro would give these out to a wider audience...

Good idea getting this back out there.  I'm down for a couple I think.

I was stupid and passed on the BP when I found it, so I'll pick this one up.  :)

Great that they're getting these out again. Now if they could just find some way to refresh the Red Leader astromech I'll be a very happy camper.

Yeah, I wish they would have added the astromech droid again.  Oh well.

Smart re-release.

At the risk of harping on this... it'd be even smarter if they changed the head sculpt on the tech.
