The Starspeeder 3000 in its 3,3/4" release should be available in mid may through the "once upon a toy" shop of the Florida Disney park for a very short run of 2500 ex. No more info yet but if it's true we will have the confirmation very soon !

It was a long time, maybe 20 months since I've seen the 3,3/4" StarSpeeder 3000 appearence on the German Hasbro warehouse listings. Germany is the first country in Europe to have the goods and info from HK. I have a contact in Hamburg and he always had reliable infos.
I havn't been able to get any info from Disneyland resort Paris (as usual...).
I thought the vehicle was cancelled but it seems finally it will see the light of day (but only in Orlando for the moment). This seller specialized in Disney parks items has already auctionned a few of these upcoming speeders.

I think it sounds good, time will tell.

This rumor has been around for a DECADE, I can't imagine that it'd be true now or that this ebay auction (which has the $5 pull-back version from a few years back pictured) would be able to sell these at $35 when a 4"-scale one would be bigger than the recent Imperial Shuttle (which to be fair is well under scale itself).

And that's R5-D2, not R5-D4.

See the Collector's Database for pictures.

Wel, the change has been made very late in production line... as earlier official news releases said R5-D4....

Even the Cargo Bay on SW.com isn't updated ...
