Wonder if they're gonna be in the same packaging and who the third droid will be. Very cool though. :cool:

Can't wait for those droids to come out. Maybe I won't have to fly to Disneyland to find those after all.

Ugh - did you look at those vinyl figures from Diamond Comics? Those are horrendous! Why would someone sign off on those terrible statues?

It doesn't seem like it could be the same packaging with a 3-pack. Oh well, at least that will help take a small bite out of the scalper's market. Now all the fan club needs is to re-release Sacul!

I bet the Star Tours 3 pack will be a little different than the one at DW. I'm sure the 2 figures will be the same, but they'll probally come packed in a box or ina "delux" kind of card. The third droid is going to be one from the ride. I've never been, but I've hear people mention a third droid they should do on other forums. So, I'm guessing it will be that one.

True, it will take away from the scalping of the DW ones, but I don't think they'll be hard to come by at all.

Don't get your hopes up about the Sacul, they'll never sell it again. That's just the way it is, same thing with the Toy Fair Vader. Hasbro people have said this, and I doubt that they are wrong.

on the star tours ride itself, i have noticed, other than the pilot and that G2 mechanic, an R5 that the G2 is working on and R2 and C3PO so perhaps if it really is a 3 pack, it is one of those 3 droids? or i could be wrong.

The special 3 pack might include a small version of the Star Tours ride, along with the two droids. But who knows, anyone's guess is as good as mine. I would rather the carded figures, though.

hmm, well now that jedi juice brought it up, it could be that mini version of the starspeeder that they sell at the parks that is the pack in

"That's possible. They have just returned from a dispute on the Death Star." Or something like that. ;)
They already have Rex the pilot and G2-4T the yellow mechanic, here are some possibilities for the third:
*G2-9T the green mechanic ("I've been working on the same droid . . .")
*C-3PO
*R2-D2
*The R5 that G2-9T is working on
*One of the two R3 droids that are far-off, kinda
*Those freaky bird droids . . . Man I'd love one of those!
Or maybe it's one of the flight attendants. :D

They could be on the same cards and just be labeled as a 3-Pack just cause you're getting the 3 at once.

Hopefully it's the R5 Droid so we can get an R5 headsculpt on hopefully a R2 w/ Holo Leia body so they can do R5-D4 later on but it'll probably be something simple that kids can recognize and get attracted to even more like R2 or 3PO.

Hmmm...

If they are on the same cards, perhaps the third figure would be the PotJ Naboo Escape R2-D2 since his PotJ card most closely resembles those of the Star Tours figs...

Although, then if it's PotJ cards, maybe it's be another droid (R2-Q5 or R4-M9)...

I guess we'll just have to wait for pics to surface!

If only it was this easy to get the fan club to sell other exclusives (Y-Wing, Skiff, ect...).
