I so want two of the first set...  those are pretty slick repaints and the seeker's a nice way to get it and avoid the 2-pack I have no interest in we saw at Toy Fair.  Very excited for this set at this point.

Yeah, kind of neat to see that Seeker Droid recycled already.  I'll probably grab both sets.  The signal droid is a great hangar fodder and I love the suitcases too.  Even the 3PO is a nice sculpt to re-use in a set like this.  I'm expecting they'll be like $30 each, but it's not like there is a lot of other stuff to buy this Spring/Summer. :P

I really hope these are in the 25 buck range, but we will see.

I am anxious to see what Disney will do for Star Wars Weekends now that they own the property.

exclusive figures every year? who knows

But these sets will be around for awhile and they will be made available at probably downtown disney and every park, except animal kingdom

The more I look the more I may want both sets and 2 of the top one.

The droids wiring in the bottom set is really nicely detailed, and again repaints are fun different droids/figures.

If a repaint of that starspeeder happens, I'm all in again.  It's without a doubt a great toy.

I pulled my old Star Tours figures out for comparison and there is a lot of "new" going on in that second set.  The G2 series droid is all new (per the press release).  The RX droid seems to have new arms as the pinchers and wiring in the droid pictured don't seem to match up to the old ReX figure.  Even the RX's head seems new with more of an open mouth sculpt.  3PO looks pretty much the same though.

I'm REALLY gonna be tempted to ask my Star Tours pack mule to get another Starspeeder for me, haha.  All the droids and stuff...  a sweet Coruscant dock could be done, and make a very beautiful display for Senators, some Shocktrooper Clones, etc.

You are right. The details on the body seem off also. Maybe a 100% new sculpt. But the boxed one looks to be just a repaint. Wonder which one will be released?

Interesting. The only EU we are allowed in the action figure line.

I think it would've been funny if they used the other Utai mold to do another baggage handler.

I seriously think these will be $40 each. This is Disney.  If they see them initially fly off the shelves, they always raise the price then they sit for years.

But the prior sets (with an extra figure, or two) were $45, IIRC, so hopefully these smaller and more recycled sets won't be quite that much.  These sets are definitely going further and further downhill each time now.  Which reminds me, I still haven't even picked up the two prior sets.  Are they still available at the park/Downtown Disney?  I was going to order them through that Disney Delivears #, but they wanted to charge like $30 to ship them - insane!

Yup. They are still there. So is the big Star Speeder.

Yeah Disney stuff seems to not hurt in terms of availability at least.  Thank god for a friend who goes to WDW often or I'd have none of those astromechs, haha.  I've found even with the price, I kinda dig having that kind of astro diversity going on.

So, I forgot to buy these.  Mostly, because I didn't want to.  But, complete set and all...

Are they long gone at this point?

I was wondering the same thing, actually. I am heading down to Disney World later this week.  ;D
