Star Wars.com's page makes the following claim:

"Check back next week for more Hasbro 2003 previews including two new vehicles and a cool classic trilogy Wal-Mart exclusive. "

What's the new Wal-Mart exclusive coming out?

Also, what's with that melon on Padme's shoulders? Damn thing has its own weather system!!

Ahhhhhhh!!

Perhaps it's a pun - Christmas, winter, snow, "cool"?

A punny yoke....

I'd predict they'll show the Max Rebo 12" sets. I doubt that's making it out by December.

I'm starting to wonder if they will ever release the Max Rebo 12" Band Sets. Hell, I posted the info about them ages ago, and there still hasn't been anything more come of them. Not even delay or cancellation rumors. It's like they fell off the face of the earth. :eek: :D

Has Hasbro "Officially" announced the 2nd wave of the Cantina Bar Sets? It might be something like that. I get confused from all the rumors and pics, and never can remember what is actually stated to be released.

Yes, Hasbro did officially announce the second wave of Cantina Bar Sets. SSG and Rebelscum both had the story for those, saying that it would contain "Kitik Keed'Kak, Wuher, and Dr. Evazen." :)

It will be the Christmas R2 and C-3PO, which are cool.

Beast

Yep, the hint is the fact that they refer to it as "classic". If you take a look at the packaged image for the Santa C-3PO and Rudolph R2-D2 figures, it has the words "CLASSIC" slapped on the side of the cards. :)

Maybe that's supposed to be a mural of Wuher on the background piece?!!

He does have quite the high-class clientele...

Guys, why would 2003 Walmart exclusive be a Holiday Item? I seriously doubt that those are what is being unveiled. Those should hit the shelves by late November. THe Holiday sets simply would not be a 2003 release. It's got to be something else IMOP.

I believe the 2003 is only in regard to the two vehicles, but I hope that I'm wrong. So far the only Wal-Mart exclusives that are in the works at the moment is the Holiday Droids 2-Pack, Cantina Sets Wave 2, and 12" Max Rebo Band Sets. They aren't going to announce exclusives for 2003 this early. :)
