This is what to consider...  if packaging isn't your big buggaboo, you're likely to see this thing again.  Hasbro said as much at SDCC, that they do want to get this back out...  be it an exclusive, or a repack, or whatever. 

One thing about Hasbro...  they hate wasting a tooling once they have it.  Things like Malak/Revan are rare occurances in modern collecting, and even those I suspect we shall see again, in some form, and they'll kill the secondary market.

Packing is my thing which is why I stopped at scoring one of these in US packaging. Beyond that, when it comes to having one to open, I'm just going to wait for the re-release that Hasbro promised.

If it never comes before the line ends, well, I'm sure at that point there will still be multi-lingual versions out there and like all things with this line - once the hype around an item dies down, the price seems to level off to a reasonable level as well...

That sucks, Jman...sorry to hear about all that. I do a lot of eBaying and stories like that always make me shudder. There are so many dirtbags out there it seems.

Like Pete, I was fine with just getting the one US version for my packaged collection. I have no real desire to get one of these things to open, so if it never comes out again it makes no difference to me. It'd be nice for those that are waiting it out though.

I just hope one day we see more TCW Class II vehicles, like the Trandoshan skiff or Trident Squid Drill.

Did any site bring this up with Hasbro at the SDCC q&a sessions?

It came up in the Q&A at the end of the presentation - From Jesse's notes during the presentation:  "Small numbers on the Mandalorian Transport... Want to re-release."

GH had this in their wrap-up: "Vehicles like the Mandalorian Attack Shuttle will eventually be released again, albeit in updated packaging current to the new line."

I'm pretty sure I heard them also say "definitely not this year" as well...

Not to mention the fact that things for the Class II vehicle line aren't good overall, so it also has a chance of coming out as an exclusive vehicle release as well.

Thanks Metal.  My story actually has a happy ending.  I did finally get in touch with the guy - he was away at SDCC and was trying to secure 2 more of these for me on his trip.  When he got back mid-week, he credited by account in full and even offered me a $50 credit on his other auctions.  Not sure if I'm going to bother given all the hassle I just went through, but happy to have at least gotten my money back.  From now on, I'll be sure to file a claim within 30 days no matter what, since your options are pretty limited after that.

It sounds like GH confirmed with Hasbro reps at NYCC that the Mandalorian Shuttle will NOT be re-appearing in 2013 on toy shelves.

No surprise to me, given the push for the wee vehicles next year, but disappointing nonetheless. I still think this would have been excellent fodder for a UBP to support the upcoming Mando-centric episodes of the show this season.

Just glad I got mine in the English packaging because those things are even more impossible to find now.

I expect to see that shuttle reissued when the ARC Trooopers Battle Pack is reissued. Never of next never.

TRU has shrink-wrapped vehicle 2-packs hitting stores and reports are that the Mandalorian Assault Transport is mixed in there along with the AV-7 cannon, various Jedi Starfighters, V-19, Xanadau Blood, and Droid Gunship.

Sweet.  Any idea on price point?  I'd pick up the Mando with a spare ship I think.

Is there a unique UPC for these 2-packs? Are they all just random assortments? Are all TRU stores getting them or just a select few?

Screw it, i'm leaving work now to be there when they open, another Mando shuttle for that price would make my whole year.
