Ok. Went last night and talked to the cast members. They said the toys are in the backroom but will not be put out until the ride opens on June 3rd.  :-\

I am heading down to Star Wars weekends and the opening of the new Star Tours Ride. I'll get some pics and a story up on the front page when it happens.

Thanks,
Jim

Master_Phruby, thanks for the updates and confirmation on the big Starspeeder. I am in on both sets and of course that BMF Speeder when they hit.

If at all possible, if you can help me with these like before when they hit I will be sure to compensate you for the bounty (and send payment prior.) Help Master_Phruby, you are my only hope...outside of feebay.

No problem. Just pm me a reminder. They get released June 3rd when the ride opens. I wouldn't worry about them selling out. Disney is still selling the boarding party set and jedi training sets so these will be around all summer.

Thanks my friend! I really appreciate it! (Those other two sets were great, I am surprised they are still there)

We have postponed our trip to DL from May to November, so I can't wait to check it out.  I'll have to grab that Vader set too.

Here is a look at the new Star Tours box sets. Each will be $39.99.

New loose images of 3 of the figures surfaced...  Too bad the little v-shaped droid wasn't one of them.

That would have been nice. I picked up the ACE-38.

I am definitley in on both sets, the Stormtroopers are actually decent. I like the two previous sets better than these but these are still nice additions. I am dying to see this scale Starspeeder.....

I am probably at least going to go with the droid set - and I am very hopeful about the starspeeder as well

I was linked this today from a everything Disney obsessed co-worker "Star Tours opens with a bang".  You can see the box sets on display - unfortunately I am not seeing the Starspeeder.

Yeah... Disney already said the speeder wouldn't be ready until the Fall -

@Craig – [wave of my hand] You don’t need to know about the large scale vehicle. I spoke with Brad who confirmed that you will see additional items including the large scale vehicle later in 2011. We just won’t have them ready for the upcoming opening (if that makes sense). I can say that I’ve seen (and photographed) a first, unpainted sample of the large scale vehicle. It is so beyond awesome that it is “beawesome!”

Well, I've got tickets for preview rides at Disneyland this wednesday and saturday. Wednesday is looking a bit iffy but definately saturday I'll brave the two hour long preview line. I'll check the star trader for the figures. If you havn't got money in, please do so now.
