Kmart Imperial Scanning Crew 2-Pack
« on: February 9, 2013, 05:02 PM »
I haven't seen pics yet, but thought I'd start up a thread so we have one when pics surface... 

I'm guessing this one will be like the AT-ST Drivers.  If the price holds, that'll be a nice buy for $15. :)

Outstanding set...  especially if they maintain $15 pricing on it.  I'm geeked and plan to army build like I did with this year's sets.

Very glad to hear about this set.  I'll definitely be picking up a few of these 2-packs, just like last years AT-ST crews.  I had been hoping that Hasbro would follow through and give us the 2nd Scanning Trooper as a basic figure as they had originally planned.  But it seems that since large accessories with basic figures are a thing of the past, this is the best avenue for doing that.  I'm okay with that compromise.  I just hope that with these 2 new Scanning Troopers we get new heads for both, and not one portrait that's the same as the TLC RED version.

Totally agree with Nick...  This format's a great way to get "big accessories".  So wish we'd gotten a DS Commander and DS Trooper set with the console.

Torryn Far and Echo Base Trooper with a console?  I'd be in.

A certain staffer here owns a hardcopy of the Trooper with the box top.  :)

I did not... too busy being excited and writing things down... plus the images didn't stay up for long.

Here's a question for you.  Word is circulating that this pack will actually be 1 x Scanning Tech with the rest of the scanner gear plus an Imperial Officer.  Does that ring a bell from the slideshow?

That does ring a bell now that you mention it.  It seemed weird that it wasn't 2 of them.

Actually, I think it's a good thing.  When I first heard about the Scanning crew pack, I was a little concerned that we might get a repeat of the TLC RED Scanning Trooper in addition to the 2nd, missing Scanning Crewman.  But then I thought back to an old Hasbro-Star Wars Q&A session regarding the completion of the Scanning Crew set.  And Hasbro seemed to have an interest in offering the 2nd Scanning Trooper with someone else from that scene:  Vader, Captain Khurgee (Imperial Officer) or a Stormtrooper.  So I'm hoping that it might be Captain Khurgee in this case.

Oh that's awesome.  Way better!

I have the bottom of the box in droves...  Like I have at least 30 of those, maybe more, so yeah, that's fantastic news.

Scanning Crew and hopefully the schmuck who calls for a Scanning crew "on the double".  He seems appropriate.

Him or one of the guys in the hangar control room.

For those to lazy to go to the site, there's two of them.





Gee, guess which one will be more popular? Desired scanning box vs. new figures?

The crewman with the lower box has a new head. Can't tell if that's just a recolored Needa head on the officer.

A non-removable helmet stormtrooper, thankfully...ball no hips, bummer.
