Disney Star Speeder 1000 playset
« on: August 17, 2010, 09:52 AM »
According to the Disney theme park merchanise pannel at CV there will be a new 3 3/4 scale Star Speeder 1000 playset! It is suppost to hold up to nine figures. Not sure if this is more of a case or a real playset but it seems to have doors that open on the sides and removable top.

If that is true, and it is in scale, and despite the fact that I really don't know much about Star Tours itself (having never been to it), I will buy it.

I never did buy that scaled down version that came out years ago, but I dig it - especially if it's to scale with the figures.  Haven't been on the ride since I was 16ish at Disneyland, but someday...I will be back.   :)

I would too. I have been on the ride and I love the generic-ness of the vehicle. This will be interesting, if this is happening it will be at the launch of the new ride.

I agree with JACK, the sheer generic nature of the design would get me to buy it if it's not absurdly priced.

He is - and that's why I send Paul the money up-front, he's helped me twice already and if he's game, I'll impose on him again when this thing comes out.

Hopefully, it won't be more than $50.

If it's well done I will buy it regardless of price. Disney exclusives are not cheap but I must say I have been very happy with them. The Jedi Academy, The Mickey Deco Astro and the Boarding Party have been very nice. I think the Academy pack had the most to offer but I was happy to pay a premium to get Teek who would otherwise never get made.

Getting a scale Star Tours Vehicle is pretty damn cool if you ask me. I almost consider these OT given it's history.
Now if they do Cindel and the Quaker Oats guy I will be a very happy collector.

This certainly looks like a great piece... I'd be interested in getting one of these.
