IIRC, the news that came out about these stated that one would be shipping in the Spring, and the other would ship in the Fall.

I'm hoping these will be easier to track down with just two figures.   If they're in 12pk cases, that's 6 of each for any store that gets a box (assuming they're not mixed in with non-exclusives).  They might even get their own case.

I'd want the Ghost and a Death Star playset if this pans out.  Honestly, they could redo all the ships to be more properly scaled I suppose, but personally I don't want to replace all those!  Just give me modern versions of older stuff we don't have or something completely new.  The only exception to that for me would be a larger-to-scale Jawa Sandcrawler, just because there's so much they could do with it similar to the barge.

Awesome.  And so cool that it's coming to Target where every store ends up with an extra case of their exclusives!

I snagged an extra 6" Phasma at Target today for $2.96.  No idea what I will do with her, but I don't think there's any 6" figure I can pass up for $3.

I thought that the Disney crawler would be out by now.  I'd love to get that as well.  I've got enough droids and Jawas for it.

Someone asked Hasbro at TF about a Sandcrawler, and not sure of the exact quote, but they effectively dismissed it. I look forward to the Disney one, because I'm a Jawa fanatic.

Give me a bigger Sandcrawler.


Don't forget, hopefully coming via Disney parks.

I agree, but given the retail offerings of the past five years, it seems like any larger vehicle with a realistic sculpt/proportions could be on the table. The Y-Wing could probably be about the same size as the Naboo cruiser toy, but we keep getting the same, small version.

I think a playset would be good as long as they keep it to simple scenes rather than putting everything in. A Death Star playset would be cool, but we'd probably end up with very miniature versions of the key areas. If the scale is too obviously crunched down, it would look weird. Kind of like having a playset that has the hangar, trash compactor, overbridge and chasm in one overall package, and with everything undersized.

The thing that's very cool about the sail barge is that it's a playset that's not trying to be several locations in one. So in that vein, I'd rather have something like the carbon freeze chamber as a standalone. Or the detention block as a standalone. Or the overbridge as a standalone. They could be assembled together, or displayed separately.
