Here (http://www.sandtroopers.com/Spice/posts/dewback.jpg) is a picture of the new Walmart exclusive Dewback with Sandtrooper Patrol. It looks like a pretty sweet update; even the sandtrooper was retooled to better fit the beast, it seems. I think the old one is still pretty good but it will be nice to have another.

I'm in for one. The repaint V-wing I'll pass on though.

I've got three of the POTF2 versions, which are really good. This Dewback has an all-new sculpt or it's just the same? I don't have the old version out on display so I can't tell.

I'd be more excited about seeing a resculpted Tauntaun.

Nope this one is 100% new. The head is smaller to match the ones we see in the special edition better and it doesn't have the dark brown coloring on top of it. Like most people I'm pretty stoked. The old dewback looks good but not the troopers who rides it. Hopefully this new dewback will be able to accommodate most of the modern SA figures without looking too goofy.

As most have stated the original POTF2 one wasn't a slouch and was a great sculpt that still holds up but it's nice to have a re-release of this. I'll obviously be getting one. Now we just need a new ronto...

Yes, the POTF2 Dewback looked pretty good, and I would have been happy if Hasbro had just rereleased that one with more accurate paint and a rider that wasn't so POTF2-ish.

However, an all-new sculpt is even cooler! :thumbsup:

I would also love to see a new TaunTaun.

I'd like one but then again it's one of those mythical Walmart exclusives that never show up in Los Angeles. Oddly enough I never got the POTF2 one.

I'd like it, but, the way exclusives are priced lately, it'll be $40.

Wait, is there any reason to think that this thing will be over $25. I am guessing that this, the octo droid, and the v-wing will all be the standard $20 or $21 or am I dreaming on this?

The V-Wing was $20 last time. Add between about $2-5 for inflation, then a ridiculous markup because it's exclusive, and we're probably looking at $30. (I was exaggerating with the $40, but it wouldn't surprise me.)

Not thrilled that it has to be an exclusive - as is typical now of any OT item that isn't a basic figure. Now I have to worry about not being able to get it.

Looks good. Its bigger than the old one.

Looks totally awesome! But check out the cheerleading sandtrooper with his wide-*** stance. Jeez.

Well, he's gotta straddle the dewback.... I wonder if he hasn't got ball jointed hips? I'm just ticked he's so clean! Looks like he's straight out of the academy....

I'm definitely up for one of these. If it was the old dewback sculpt, I might have passed since I already have one, but I can't pass up an all new one. Just hope I can find it.

I really like the look of this new Dewback. Hopefully my WalMart will decide to actually have some of these available.

This looks really good! A definite purchase if I can find it..never did see the ROTJ Rancor in stores, though!

A definite buy for me. Even though I have the POTF2 one, this will look good next to it.
If you strain your eyes, it looks like the Sandtrooper has dirt or sand blast on his armor, though it's hard to tell.

So is this a new Sandtrooper with reworked hips?

I think he really turned out great. There is a vintage vibe to him, especially in the paint deco and details... Excellent job on this one, Hasbro... I only wish he was in stores right now...

The white tag in the picture says $29.99 (http://photos.sirstevesguide.com/showphoto.php?photo=30770).

And the little white tags said that the Walmart exclusive droid factory sets would be 15.99 but in reality they're $17. So if you apply the same mark-up then you're lookin at about $32 but I could see WM jacking it up higher.

I guess that's possible but I would assume that Hasbro and Walmart got together on the prices before releasing them so they should be more accurate than not. Perhaps with the recent slow down they are wary of sitting on tons of droid factor sets. It's not like the last group flew off the shelves and I don't see much of an improvement in character selection.

I will buy it anyways, as long as it aint TRU or Kmart it will be under 40 bucks
