I was checking out the pics at GalacticHunter's story on the Starspeeder's release, and love the fact you can sneak Rex into the cockpit.  That's a nice touch.

Tons of actual thought went into this thing's design.  Hats off to the designers involved.

I'm going to get one, but easily could see myself getting a 2nd and painting it maybe in Republic markings just as a Coruscant shuttle or something.

I think I'll make my own "screen" for in it...  Something more generic like a starfield background or whatnot, but really this is seriously one of the cooler toys for the basic figures it seems.  And it's not even priced horribly for all the cool stuff it ultimately does.

Deliver a Gunship of this kind of quality (good price, great scale, lights/sounds, great features/displayability) and man, I'd probably be in for like 3 anyway...  It's like the new AT-ST and Snowspeeder.  I bought in bulk.  Quality ropes me in if the price is right.

This thing is pretty darned cool.  The fact that you can pull that chair out and put the old Rex in there is beyond awesome.  This attention to detail is something that Hasbro should have.

Has anyone successfully got through on the phone this morning?  I keep getting a busy signal.  Yesterday I got through but, closed.

My buddy David over at the EndorExpress has pictures of the ship. He also has pictures of them for sale at the Star Trader at Disneyland posted.

thats how it was for me on Friday - I probably called 10 or so times until I got through.  I didn't end up order then - perhaps I will give it a go today after work.

Dammit.  I guess all I can do is hope that they are still around in January.  Nobody has contacted me, so I guess that's what I have to do.

As I stated before, I won't have any funds until January.  This thing is so popular that it will likely be sold out by then, hence my original request for help.

I wouldn't worry.  Disney I'm sure anticipated popularity, they rarely sell out of anything, and it JUST released so I think if they did sell out, they'd make more.  If the molds are done, it's just gravy to pump out another round if they're selling that well.

my bad - I must have skipped it.

But I am with Jesse I am sure you will be good waiting a while and it will be there.

iirc the Boarding Party w/ Teek set was supposed to be really hot too and I think it is selling for less than MSRP on Ebay right now.
