Anyone know anything about the alternate Darth maul/sith speeder combo that briefly hit KB stores? The figure and speeder bike are totally different than the original and correct speeder bike set.

If I am not mistaken, the Darth Maul Speeder version you are talking about, was very similar to the Invasion Force Gungan Assault Cannon w/Jar Jar Binks and Armored Scout Tank with Battle Droid. I don't remembe reading too much about him, I think I remember someone on this forum said they found him at a Frank n Scalper in California (whatever that is). Don't know if he was ever released at retail, and if it was, it had to be in small quantities. Check the Just Found LA thread for more info and be prepared to go way back to find it.

Darth Maul with Sith Attack Speeder.
Just another one of those mini-rig ideas that Hasbro got to try to match the vintage mini-rig idea. The concept didn't seem to take very well. Although the "mini-rigs" for E1 weren't that bad.
The Sith Attack Speeder isn't all that rare, several people were able to pick it up at KB and TRU at times for clearanced prices along with the Obi-Wan. They basically designed like a huge Sith Probe Droid that opened up.
Upon the release of the sets though, stores didn't buy them very much due to the sitting Mini-AAT and Jar-Jar with Cannon.

Yep, this was part of the "Invasion Force" series that Hasbro did. I actually found this at the Main Exchange here on Fort Knox about 8 months ago.:crazed: I bought 2 (1 open and 1 MIMB)
They must have been sitting in the back, for a while.;) It was also the first, last and ONLY time I EVER saw it at retail.

I got mine at my local KB right after Christmas 2000. Found several of him Obi Wan and sub and the other two. For those couple of days he wasn't hard to find, but after that I never saw him again. These never made it to retail the first time around. I mean at full price. I think the only time they where sold was during the big liqudation sale Hasbro did on all TPM stuff. I got them for $3.00 I think. Alon with Watto's Box, Tatooine Showdown, and Jabba w/ Two headed announcer. All those where hard to find at retail when they where new becasue none of the store ordered them. Then they pop up at TRU and KB for 75% off. Great deal!
