It looks like one of the Battle of Endor sets that are currently TRU exclusives.

I wonder if that is the bigger retooled landspeeder from a few years ago or just a repainted vintage mold.

Yeah, definitely the Saga updated sculpt Paul.  Looks like the deco may be a little more accurate but the Saga wasn't bad.  Cool pic.

And that Pilot pack does look like the Endor set for sure, but that last word is so garbled and blurry it's tough to see.  :-\

Sandtroopers preview night gallery is live.  Nothing terribly surprising

So far, very underwhelming outside of the Taun Taun, Landspeeder and Mando ship.  Hopefully it picks up.

According to the pics the Tauntaun is an exclusive.  No info on the place card about the retailer though.

Yeah, the Mando Gunship was nice, and the Trench Run set, but nothing else had much of a surprise factor. Kind of a letdown really.

Props to Sandtroopers for getting their pics up so quickly.

For me, right now, the Taun Taun and Landspeeder are my only big "Oh I gotta have that!" toys.  The rest I'm not so hot on...  I had hoped maybe the Death Star set had something new in it, but it really appears not to, so I'll happily pass to save the moolah, but still a DS Gun would've probably gotten me to buy it.

I'm still kinda iffy on the Tauntaun... it's going to have to be significantly different from the one in the Hoth Battlepack (which I'm sure it will be).

The Landspeeder looks fantastic!  Love the box.  Let's hope some new stuff is revealed though.

Same here on the Death Star turret Jesse... I've got a pretty cool one made for me by a good customizer, but I've love to see Hasbro release one.  It would probably do a lot better at retail than they are thinking.
