No info yet. Disneyland is currently working on redecorating their Star Trader store while Star Tours 2 is built. My guess is the store will reopen on June 4th with the attraction and we should see the StarSpeeder playset then.

But what do I know.... ;)

Well the ride does reopen two weeks earlier in Florida. So we will see what the Tatooine Trader has then.

Updated prototype packaging pic from JD's Star Tours 2 launch coverage.

The store's stock was pretty good too, and there were some upcoming releases on display. I snapped a few photos of them, including the Full Size Starspeeder 1000 Prototype Packaging, due out later on the fall. The MSRP on that beast is $54.95, but collector's of Hasbro's action figures are definitely going to want this!

awesome - want!  Master_phruby, do you think you will be able to snag these?  If so, I think I will have you nab this for me and the boarding party sets all at once.  If that is cool with you of course   8)

The ship comes out later this fall. The figures are out within the next couple of weeks. You can always wait on the figures. They will be around for years.

This thing reminds me of that Saturday morning live action sci-fi show from my childhood, where a bunch of scientists rolled around a post-apocalyptic America in a tricked out futuristic RV like this. Anyone else remember that? Cannot think of the name for the life of me. Sort of like Space 1999, but cheesier somehow.

Yeah, I am in on the two sets, the Starspeeder but Sam the Eagle as a Jedi just might be impassable.

Dose anyone know where the aircraft playset will be sold? Correct me if I'm wrong but will they only sale these at the park stores, correct?

Star Traders in Disneyland. Tatooine Outpost in Disney Hollywood Studios.

I'm collecting a list of people that want these. I'll be able to pick them up at Disneyland when they are available.

Would it be OK if you could just notify me when you figure out they are on retail. I have  friend that is going to pick it up for me, well once I know I need her to.

This is one of those things that has gotten forgotten a bit...  Can't wait to pick that up though.  It's so nice and neutral looking, it'll go great with a display of Senators or basically background schmucks.

agreed - can't wait to see more on this

Phruby - I will definitely be hitting you up on this and the boarding sets when it comes out
