Hmmm, guarantees your kid the inquisitor or the main hero.  Smart move I suppose on sets like that, for gift givers.

I'm really looking forward to the Phantom.  It looks actually pretty proportional.  I'm shocked.  It and the Ghost just reinforce how poorly handled the ship from Clone Wars ultimately was.  Built-in money maker just never made...  though it didn't have a tiny "scout" ship, which is

Target Exclusive Vehicle with Figure Asst. via GH on Facebook.

So THIS is the Class I assortment?  It just comes across a little odd.

I can get the exclusivity for Target to have these vehicles packaged with the figures.  It's something a little different.  But the Class I label historically denoted a smaller vehicle with 1 or 2 figures.  These 2 vehicles look decidedly more like Class II vehicles.

It's hard to say what assortment this is -- it could ultimately be the CII.

Yeah I'm not ready to say this is that assortment, but I was thinking similarly that this is it.  It deflates the Fig w/vehicle anticipation for sure.  I'd like to see that back in some way.  :-\

Nice!  Glad to see some new ships finally coming out.  I think this has been a huge whole in the product line for the past couple of years.

I can't imagine being a kid and being all that excited about a toy line that didn't offer interesting vehicles.

I can still remember my first vehicle as a kid - the landspeeder.  It was all kinds of awesome just to zoom that thing around the living room with Luke and the droids, or maybe even Darth Vader and a Tusken Raider riding shotgun.

The figures packed with these vehicles reminds me far more of the Costco exclusive pieces we've seen in recent years.  Like the Avengers Quinjet packed with repainted versions of Iron Man and Captain America.

But as for actual Class I vehicles?  I'm hoping for speeder bikes with figures.  Like the ones we saw in the new REBELS trailer that just premiered this week.

Hmm, well we already saw both of these ships, and the figures appear to be identical to the single carded release, so I can't get but so excited about this. Still I love that we are getting new ships again and will certainly be buying both of these. Please get to work on The Ghost though!  :)

Well at least I know that if I ever want any of these, I'll snag them at Target
