Naboo Pilot and Olie show more detailed sculpt on belt, bandoliers, coat and helmet.

Seems as the new way to launch new OT pilots, redifine their sculpt in detail.

I still think Lucas should have made it a Swoop Race rather than a Pod Race.

I agree...  it's like my annoyance that early Y-Wings and Z-95's weren't incorporated into the movies, or the AT-PT...  Lucas could've cashed in on the established EU but didn't.

Swoops would've been cooler than pods and easier to make more/all of them and thus shill them all instead of just two pods.

I didn't buy any of the pod racer vehicles from EI.  I think there were only 2 though right?  Sebulba and Anakin I remember seeing.  They didn't interest me much.  I do love the scenes where we get a huge smattering of aliens though, like Jabba's Palace and the Cantina.  And the pod race was like that too so I have bought every pod race pilot and any alien from the stands or walking around.

Yeah just 2 pods, but tons of pilots...  If they'd flown swoops, they could've cranked them all out rather easily in the deluxe type format.

I have 10 podrace aliens on my shelf and I do not have Rats Tyrell yet.

This probably means nothing, but I busted out the Nintendo 64 the other day and tonight I logged a few minutes in Star Wars Episode I: Racer. Anyway, they show the pilots with the racers at the select screen, and Mawhonic is about the size of Anakin, and twice the size of Ratts Tyrell.

Sure if you don't have to go out of your way too much.  These things are supposed to be out in a week or so but who knows.  Gonna PM you now Matt, thanks.

Mawhonic reminds me of the small jocks in horse racing.  come to think of it they (podracers) are all small.

So, I guess the odds of these being at retail this week is pretty slim...no?  Has there been any reports of them leaking anywhere yet?  Walmart seriously sucks ass on this ****.  I wonder if the demise of Jabba and Kit Fisto's Fighter was due to their pisspoor management of the whole thing.  My local Super Center never even carried either of those (as was the case around the nation).

Yeah, these things are probably stuck back in the warehouse next to all those TCW exclusive DVD 2-packs Hasbro made for them but mysteriously got "lost"...

The logical part of me wants to say thta these are going to make it to market on or around February 10th.  But WalMart is so *#$&ed at times that they defy any sort of logic.

I didn't even see peg space or a tag for these things at the Walmarts I checked today. If they're not coming in some kind of a pre-filled display, that does not bode well.

The Wal-Marts in my area have had dedicated peg space for these for a couple weeks - hopefully we'll see these hit in a couple weeks like Nicklab suggested.
