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.

So is that a new category of figures?  :D

Yeah...  well, for me it is.  I always put those background ssenators in their own category...  Seppie leaders, Orn Free tah, Senator Palpatine...  Those lame, boring, guys.  The Lucas family sans Jett...  You know the type.  Barely poseable, if at all, and usually decoed nicely.  The kind of figure that makes you debate the purchase, especially at anything above $7.

Is this panned to go on retail in late SEP or like OCT? I need a release date more explicit.

It's an unknown...  Sometimes stuff shows up way earlier than expected at Disney it seems, other times it's a crap shoot.

Kind of miffed that we have not heard more news on this.  Last bit of news we heard was a fall release, right?

I don't have the time to go back and check, but is this thing even being made by Hasbro?  I got the 6 little titanium Starspeeder sized ships awhile back and those just had LFL and Disney stamps on the box/ships.

No, in fairness, you are right, it is not being made by Hasbro iirc.  But, iirc, the first time it was presented to us was during a Hasbro presentation (Toy Fair?).

No, the first time it was shown to us was from a DISNEY presentation at Celebration 5...

According to the Disney theme park merchanise pannel

When Hasbro was asked, they basically said it was Disney's thing and since we have no Disney Q&A... we've got no new info.  :(

Last solid update was put out there at Star Wars Weekends 2011 -

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!

If you are that miffed about it, maybe you can shoot an e-mail over to the Endor Express guys and see if their Disney contacts have heard anything new...  and be sure to share back here if you learn anything new. :P

The current issue of the Star Wars Insider has pictures of the new Star Speeder 1000 playset. They say it is coming in December but it is Disney so all bets are off.
