Does anyone know if Hasbro is planning a Princess Leia and Speeder Bike to go along with the Luke and Biker Scout. It is listed in the collector's database under the POTJ line, and says it has been pushed back to this year? I have the other two and think this would seal the deal. Just wondering. Anyone?:D

There was mention by Hasbro around the time that the 12" Luke w/ SpeederBike came out that they planned to do a Leia w/ SpeederBike as well. I don't know if it's still in the cards or not. I haven't heard anything recenly about it.

The Luke one didn't sell nearly as well as the Biker Scout one. It's always possible that they will dust off the mold and produce one in the future. After all, they are doing a Luke: Hoth w/ Tauntaun this year for TRU, so anything is possible. :)

MTFBWY and HH!!

I hope this figure/vehicle set makes it to the shelves. I would love to get an Endor Leia as well as another speederbike. It would make for a great scene on the top of my shelves. Now if I had bought more than 1 Bikerscout... :(

Bah, you're lucky you got one! I have to keep checking ebay, and get outbid cos they're goin' $70 and up. :frus:

Soon after they came out Target ran a sale on them and had at least 20 of them at my local store. I'm so glad that I got one when I did. I'm still looking at them on eBay with the hope of maybe getting one more. This is the coolest exclusive that they came out with for the 12" line in my opinion. I wouldn't mind seeing a re-release of this one.

I heard about the Leia with speeder bike a while back as well. I hope they decide to do it soon. I want one to go with my Luke and Biker Scout. Not to mention the fact that it would be one less Leia I have to want that they haven't made yet in the 12" line.

Vaderfist - I just ordered 3 of the 12" Luke Skywalker/Speeder Bikes from Target.com. With tax and S-n-H they came out to $51.32 each. No where near the sale price, but better than going without. I also saw one at Frank-n-Scalper's for 30.00, but the box was thrashed hard (maybe I should have picked it up as I need to open one anyway).

By the way...Frank-n-Scalper's is right off the 60 freeway two exits west of the 57 freeway and a little north to a street with a Mexican name (San something-or-other I think). If you are interested, I will post better directions.

I got a second Speederbike w/ Scout off eBay for 27 bucks loose & mint, after my daughter got ahold of my first one and broke it. Just keep checking. I mean several times a day. Sometimes someone doesn't realize what they have, and they give a low BIN price.

I do hope Leia & Speederbike come out next year. I'll cross my fingers.:)

OH MAN! Dude, I'm so sorry. Don't be too hard on yourself though, I paid 50 bucks for Ki-Adi Mundi (just beacause I won some money at the casino) about a month before it was released. :crazed:

Well if they are going to do a Leia on Speeder bike, then how about an Ewok set. They can package him just like he was in the POTJ AT-ST and bike set, with only his hands hold him on.;)
