I've part-sourced all of the Ewoks in this set and I was really let down by the Teebo face/head sculpt. This, and the fact that the upcoming AT-ST pilots don't match the packaging either, really sucks.  :'(

yeah, I now have 3 Ewok sets (2 for me one for someone else) and all 3 have the Logray head...   :'(

This deal is getting worse all the time. It's a moot point though, as stores in my town have stopped ordering new Star Wars toys altogether. sigh.

I was able to get a price adjustment from TRU.com on my order for three of the multipacks. On Thursday they didn't qualify for the 20% off promotion, but yesterday I noticed the sale was being advertised on the product pages (with the sets still out of stock) so with one email I was able to get a nice little refund. Quick and easy!

As for the Logray head on Teebo, it doesn't bother me as much as the hideous gap at the waist or the lack of bow & arrows for the one Ewok with a quiver. It still sucks that the original head wasn't released though... it looked awesome. I'm not as grumpy when it's normal-sized figures having some errors (like the pilots using the Luke body) but for tiny little Ewoks, at the same price as regular figures, Hasbro should be going all-out.

Saw the one Ewok set at TRU today and skipped it due to gash like mold flaws on Teebo's chest.  I hate when that happens. But at $40, I am gonna be that picky and wait for the next shipment (which won't happened...I missed the boat... :( )

Pilots set looks worse in person.

Saw the rebel pack at TRU a few days ago. They had a price sticker that said Rebel Pilots on it. No mention of an Ewoks price sticker or said set.

I have grabbed all I need now.  I have 2 Ewok sets and a rebel pilot set for me, and 2 Ewoks sets and a rebel pilot set for collector I am helping out in Canada.

Now bring on the K-Mart packs so I can be done with that place once again!

Got a Yavin Pilot set...  $40 is too much for this.  It's a half-hearted effort on Hasbro's part, to say the least.

I like Porky, but the other two are gonna need a little fixin' up.  And the droid can suck it.  Sad when the TIE Pilot is the 2nd best figure in the set.

Back in stock at tru.com.  I ordered these.  I figure it's one less place for me to check for exclusives.

I'd avoid it like the plague.  But I did see Snoop Dogg hangin' out there.

Do you have a link?  I can't even find them on the site.
