Why can't they two pack the Clones like they did the Stormtroopers.  Oops, I forgot it's Hasbro.   ::)

From one of the questions in the "Question Mark" over at RS today, it sounds like there won't be any new "movie based" vehicles in the near future for the GH line.  Hasbro says that the vehicles in the line haven't been performing as well as they'd like, so there isn't any "planned" right now.  Typical Hasbro stock answer basically "nothing's planned, but you never know!" :).  I hope they change their stance on this, and at least do some of the more recognizable ones (TIE, Slave 1, AT-AT, normal Landspeeder).

a GH AT-AT would be great looking.

They'd probably do AT-ST first, if anything though

I finally was able to pick up the final figures in this line (Anakin/Dooku).  I did send away for the free two-pack in June and am curious as to when it will arrive.  Anyone else still collecting this line or mail away for the free set??

I mailed away for them, too, about two months ago.  I don't collect this line, but I couldn't resist.   :)

I love this line. I've got them all going back to the first sets "Fast through the Forest" and whatnot... can you believe how much those sets are fetching on ebay now? I'm almost sorry I opened all of mine up back then  :'(

But then again, I'd hate to sell them because they just look so damn cool.

I heard that too, just crazy.  I remember those first sets being somewhat scarce around us, but I was actually able to pick them up (the OT ones anyways) from Pamida and Bomgaars here in Nebraska.  Strange places, but I was happy to find them.  I never sent in for the free two pack, basically just forgot about it.  From what I understood, it was going to be repacked figures, but I might be wrong.  I hope they continue on with this line, and offer some new figures.  The rumors sound as if it will be repaints/repacks for at least the end of this year/first part of next year (ROTS and Hoth/Speederbike repacks).

When our KB closed around X-Mas  all the multpacks were sold for less than $5 each.  Bought a set for my son and myself.  The other KB in my area still has the Reek set I believe for $7.  They had the Naboo Fighter and X-Wing set up til last month. I bought one for my nephew.  They were both around $7 as well.

I remembered seeing all of those at KBs, but when I went to find them last XMAS they were gone.  All the scalpers gobbled them up.  The only one my nephew is missing thanks to some great boardies is the Stompin' Wampa set.

Thanks for sharing that link, that is pretty cool.  It would be neat to have an Indiana Jones GH.

Yup, mine were in my stack of mail as well.  I guess they will all be Yoda and R2D2 (according to the note inside the envelope) which works great for me as those two are my favorites!!
