Does anybody know what's in these 4 packs? The Jabba's palace one is not the Pit of Carkoon 4-pack, is it? I hope these are better than the Jedi Knights set.

I hope they give us some cool stuff in this one. But knowing our luck, we'll get the same Obi-Wan, Qui Gon, Maul, & little Ani that we already have :dis:


Hi,

Welsome to SSG! Thanks for the news. If you'll look in the Original Trilogy Collection thread, you'll see that Hasbro already has most of these confirmed. Hopefully the Jabba's Palace four-pack mentioned won't be the Skirmish at Carkoon one, we could use a good Jabba's Palace pack.

If Hasbro had good business sense, they'd do the four-packs like this:
*Naboo - Queen Amidala (Battle), Naboo Royal Guard, Naboo Royal Security, Sio Bibble
*Jabba's Palace - Ephant Mon, repainted darker green Oola, new Salacious Crumb, sitting Slave Leia, Jabba's dais
*Endor Ambush - Imperial Officer, Scout Trooper, new Ewoks, AOTC speeder bike (sans Republic logo)
But we'll probably end up getting something really crappy.

I just want more news on the Y-Wing, whether it is going to be yet another rehash of the vintage mold or not.

Given, even that would be okay as I missed out on the Target exclusive, which now goes for like $70 on the open market, but a new large-scale F/X one would be better.

Naboo set--hopefully four NEW figures (anything but Maul, Obi, Qui Gon, or Anakin again would be nice especially if they are NEW) :Ponder:
Jabba Palace set--hopefully four NEW figures (four aliens would make me faint) Hermi Odle and Yarna, anyone???????????
Endor Ambush--hopefully four NEW figures (han trench coat,Lumat, Romba, Warok, black Endor soldier would be awesome!)

I've been thinking about What the Endor Ambush COULD be. Here's a wish list:

-Kitbashed Luke (2004 Saga Luke (Jabba's Palace) Head, MMC Torso/Arms/Legs, Cloth Poncho, Lightsaber from the 2004 Saga Luke (Jabba's Palace) since its the most accurate Luke's Lightsaber to date, and Removable Helmet from the Saga Endor Soldier)
-Kitbashed Leia (POTJ General Leia with Cloth Poncho and Removable Helmet from the Saga Endor Soldier)
-Clean Scout Trooper
-Any kind of Ewok repaint
-the Speederbike from 2002 Saga repainted in Endor Speeder Bike Colors and the napsack molded on the back

This would be the SUPREME Figure 4-pack and considering Hasbro Likes to Kitbash, the Luke and Leia could ACTUALLY work.

Where did u hear this? That is actually Alright since I at one time Had the Biker With Bike set, but reasons for which I dont like to remember about (painful memory) I no longer have the set, just the Luke and Leia Speeder Bike sets.

And let me guess, only one of the items will be a new sculpt, and then I will have to buy it. :rolleyes:

If it is Endor Han, I will curse up a storm because he should be single carded. I might get it just because of the speeder bike. I love those things. :beard:

Ahh ok then. I dont trust it even more. I usually dont trust "Rumors" unless its on the Front Pages of SSG, GH, TJ.com, and YF.

Forget this... I followed a link directly from the home page and just read all the other posts on this. So, no one has any confirmed (or rumored) Jabba's PLC info?

ok guys. just to let you know. the jabba's plc 4 pack will ship from hasbro to the tru main distribution center on april 7, 2004. it will take about two weeks to get to TRU stores unless your on the east coast and it will be sooner. thats the update for now thanks.

ok. the release date is may 15th for the jabba's 4 pack. if someone claims to have it before april 20th ask to see a picture. their is no picture on the computers at the stores nor on the website. like i said it ships from hasbro to the main dc on april 7th. it takes about 2 weeks to get to texas and about 3 weeks to get to california. this is pretty standard. thats why the release date it a month away. you should start checking your local TRU for the silver clone troopers now. you CAN buy them for $4.99 or get them free with $14.99 or more of star wars. the $14.99 or more doesnt start until sunday. but if you see the clone trooper on the shelve you can still buy it for $4.99. this will most likely be a one shot deal. i know that my store is only recieving one case and that is it. no more. it was the same with the r2's and most recently with the g.i. joe cobra soldier 6 pk. so my advice is if you see them get. thanks
