picked me up one of these today!  It is awesome!!!  

I too just found this today at TRU (Roseville MN).  Excellent set for the money.  The Taun-Taun is GREAT!

Leia is the worst of the bunch, but I love Taun-Tauns and droids.

The new Hoth Han looks cool riding this new TaunTaun too!

Jeff

PS.
The TRU SKU from the receipt is 076930267035 for those that are curious about those kinds of things...

You'll have to ask Carrie what the price is.  She's the one that bought it for me.   :-*   8)

Dustrho, based on your pictures, Leia also looks like she has some different colored elbows and arms (One appears to be brighter than the other). Looks like an awesome set nonetheless!

I think it had to be the lighting in the picture, because her outfit is consist in color.  Must have been a glare because of the plastic bubble holding the figure.

The only color that is truly messed up is her face and hands... she doesn't look right at all.   :-\

Same as the other two (Bounty and Imperial)... $19.99 in the USA.

So...do the 'inards' fit inside of it?  I have one on order at Amazon (I hope they don't cancel this on me too!!! :P).

Not sure about that because I'm not planning on opening this up.  Someday maybe, but not right now.   8)

From what I have seen, it looks like it's a open belly Taun Taun. Not sure till someone actually opens there package.  :P
There pics over at GH that has 3 pages of the set. Take a good look at the close up of Leia's face!  ;D

I already told you what I thought about Leia's face.  She doesn't look quite right.  And that Tauntaun definitely has a split belly.  I would only assume the guts will fit inside of it.

The innards DO fit inside, although the palstic on the TaunTaun is pretty rigid so it is a little tricky to get them in there.  They look much better partially splayed out of the belly.

Also, for those wondering, they did away with the "push-button" on the saddle that would make the Taun-Taun "run" on the older PotF2 versions.
(althought when you look inside the TaunTaun belly, you can see they left the gears on the legs so you can see how the other version works).

So, IMHO, it is MUCH easlier to get this Taun Taun to stand in many different positions without the funky running mechanism.  Also makes the saddle look a bit smoother/cleaner.

Just some random TaunTaun bits for ya!

Jeff

ps.
The weirdness of Leia's face coloring bugged me at first, but now a few days later... not so much.

This set and the Imperial Set are both some of the coolest things to come out this year IMO.  $20 for four figures and a Tauntaun can't be beat.

Here's to hoping they continue with these sets and start pumping out some new figures in there as well :-*
