Anyone know who the new Rebel Pilots are supposed to be? Is the girl Jaina Solo? Her hair seems to short and "cut" to be Jaina. Is Arvel Crynyd the A-wing Pilot? Who is the guy? Gavin Darklighter in his younger days?

No, this is a real hodge podge set. The girl is Lumiya from when she infiltrates the Rebel Alliance's fighter corps under the name Shira Brie. The X-Wing pilot is Red 4, John D. Branon. And the A-Wing pilot is Jake Farrell from the Rebel Assualt video game.

Yeah WM exclusives have been sketchy lately, when I was trying to find the droid factory stuff last year I kept calling places and they said they had come and gone and wouldn't get any more. Then a few weeks later I went anyway and they were squirreled away on top of the shelves. The A-Wing was the same story; I kept going and looking after the release date and seeing that other people had found them and then, pfft nothing until about a month later. If they sold them online it wouldn't be a big deal but they don't seem to like doing that, they want to lure you into the store.

I was able to order an A-wing online a long time ago. Since then, they have listed it as in the store only. ???? I could not find it at any wal marts near me.

Anyway, the pilot figures are awesome. I will be buying that set for sure!

I've had pretty good luck finding the exclusives at the website

sure, I don't get them right away, but eventually they are listed in stock, and the site to store feature saves money on shipping
not on time tho, every time I've done the site to store it took them almost 30 minutes to find my box in the stock room

And that's after the three weeks it takes to get there....

I got the droid factory sets last year using site-to-store, and it worked pretty well. I think I made two orders, because one of them wasn't available the first time I ordered.

Those new Droid Factory sets are Wal-Mart exclusives again? Or are they Target's? Or are they not droids, but rather clones?

I forgot. But some of them looked interesting and I think they built a huge Dark Trooper and the other the HK Droid (isn't that from KOTOR?).

I hope someone will answer my questions.

I hope someone will answer my questions.They are Wal-Mart exclusives according to the slide presentation:

They are characters with a droid and a droid part. The droid parts build a Phase II Dark Trooper.

Anakin & Cortosis Battle Droid
General Grievous & CB-3D
Darth Maul & I-5YQ
Boba Fett & BL-17
Corran Horn & Whistler

Is I-5YQ from the EU and the novel Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter? That would be so cool. I can't tell from the picture, taken at a distance, if he has built-in guns in his hands, etc. That would be sweet if they also made Lorn Pavon and the Jedi Padawan girl (Darsha I think). Then I might have to buy this set. Lorn's droid partner was named I-Five.

I'll also have to buy Corran Horn and Whistler.

I think I'll skip the rest. Sadly I won't get the giant Dark Trooper built. So I might sell my parts or buy the ones I'm missing (or a whole Dark Trooper). I'll have to decide whether I want a Dark Trooper in the first place.

Thanks for answering part of my questions. Unanswered was whether there's an HK Droid, where it's from, and how you get it?

MSP summed up the WM one but Target is having their own exclusive set with the Jedi from the arena with clones, droids and geonosians (and Jango Fett too I guess).

Yes. There is a "Best of HK-47 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vg1gTas7OAA)" on Youtube.
