Rebel Technician accessory set
« on: January 12, 2003, 09:26 AM »
I've got to say that the Rebel Tech figure itself is pretty weak - just some rehashed figure parts moshed together to make this guy, but I'll take him anyways.  But with these Target accessory sets, it's really the accessories that make or break the set (ala the still HTF Scout Trooper set).  There's a few decent and unique pieces included with this one, in the various ladders and the batons.  I trust Hasbro was wise enough to verify that the ladders actually fit up against the various Rebel starfighters properly...

Certainly not all this set could've been, but so far these Target sets have generally been less than exciting, so the expectations have decreased somewhat now that we have an idea of Hasbro's goal with these.  Bummer...

Great, another rehash. But as always, it's a must have.  ;)
Not quite the best accessories I have seen.

I can't see myself buying this, unless it hits a $3 clearance... A few ladders and boxes and a rehash figure for $10 is way too much.

I wonder why they used the POTF2 Rebel Trooper for this set. They could have used the better POTJ version without jacket. It seems like a step backwards to me :-\
