I just noticed that Obi Wan's Jedi Starfighter, as well as Darth Vader's TIE are up on ebay (in Hong Kong) right now.  It has packaged pictures of each, which I wasn't sure we had seen before.

Nice find!  Hey, I think I'm seeing some kind of bomb packaged with the Jedi Starfighter.  I recall hearing that the tie has either sounds or blast-off wings (iirc, it's one or the other, not both), but I don't remember anything about Obi-Wan's fighter dropping a bomb.  That's pretty cool!


ETA - Hmmm, I'm a dummy, the box has said "Drop bomb from fighter!"  as far back as Toy Fair.  Also, on re-examination, I'm pretty sure that bomb will be deployed by turning or pressing the dedicated  R4 head.  If that's the main reason the ship doesn't have an open astromech slot for use with the 2-leg mold, I guess I'm less enthused.   Oh well, that's like a 99 instead of a 100.

Also, not that I really understand their factory process, but I guess it could have been an early design decision because they knew the 2-leg mold wouldn't be available - like if re-tooling for the BAR2-D2 or pumping out the X-Wing scene would have it tied up somehow.

Are the sandtroopers new (in terms of deco)?

I think they both may be:  One has a black pauldron (new for GH), and the other MIGHT be retooled (holding a regular blaster instead of the rifle,  and holding some sort of dewback-prodding electrostaff in the other hand).

That said, I'm not too sure about the possibly retooled one.  From the angle, I can't be positive that it's a blaster and not the rifle, and I'm pretty sure I'm not seeing the electrostaff thing that was in the Toyfair photo.   The boxed photo has a few other differences from what Hasbro had in their Toyfair presentation, including 2 fewer figures:

Toyfair also showed a third Sandtrooper (dirty with white pauldron, like in the Cantina Encounter)
Toyfair also showed another Garindan repack (for some reason)
Toyfair showed Chewie with the stormtrooper blaster; this one is back to his cool bowcaster

Well, there are two I don't have yet. :)

Just wondering if anybody happens to have extra Target Exclusive Cinema Scenes from last winter?  I'm needing Death Star Assault and Jabba's Palace.  Please PM me if you can help me out.

I believe they are re-releasing the Jabba set on the 26th.

Some new pics in the Clone Wars Handbook.

Asajj & Dooku
Ahsoka & Rex
Cody & Obi-Wan
Anakin & STAP

I'm digging the hooded Dooku and CW Anakin with STAP.  Glad to see another vehicle join the line.  Ahsoka and Asajj are pretty cute too.  :)
