Yes thats right? There is a listing for a Star Wars Ep3 - ROTS Strike Force Vehicle Wave 1, in a magazine I seen at a local Hobby shop. Can it be a new name for the Action Fleet? Let's hope this is Hasbro's newest venture into micro toy territory.

Unfortunately, there was no details giving. The price tag was $20. My guess is that this may be the Micro Transforming Playset that has been listed on ROTS release list. With the new micro line nearly double the normal size, this could be that playset.

Maybe these will be part of the Clone Strike board game (a pack of figures ?). I also read there will be an AT-AT and a Snowspeeders pack to come with the mini figures.
I've also seen this, antother rehash... Tydirium Shuttle from painted X-rays collector set.

That shuttle looks sweet

With all the crazy stuff Hasbro's been doing with ROTS like "Attacktix", I don't have ANY expectations on what this might be.

That shuttle looks really good, even though it is still technically a rehash at least it's something worth rehashing.

That's odd that it's alone. The other 3 sets had 2 ships and 2 figures. Why doesn't this one???

I wonder how Hasbro was able to use the Strike Force name. Have they bought out Playmates, too?

My own thoughts exactly...

No, Playmates is still their own company, but the "Strike Force" name isn't active and if this isn't an Action Fleet type toy then it would be fair use.

Looking at pictures of the Strike Force packaging, "Strike Force" doesn't have TM or anything next to it. I don't think Playmates was able to copyright a generic term like Strike Force?
