I know these have been showing up across the country for the last couple of weeks (though sadly they haven't made it to Maryland yet.) These are in stock and ready to ship on the website though. I just ordered a set of each which should get here while I'm away in Florida next week.

Thought the links might be helpful: pilots (http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12885956&searchURL=false) and ewoks (http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12885955&searchURL=false). Though the ewoks are currently unavailable for shipping.

I've got the ewoks on pre-order already, but the pilot set isn't coming to the UK at all, not even the independant online sellers are getting them. If anyone finds them, or are ordering online, I'd really appreciate some help in getting them. (And ordering two sets from TRU would get you free shipping!) Please PM me if you can help. Thanks! :)

Wow, pilots are already sold out as well. I'm sure they'll be back soon, but I hope the endor speeder bikes last a little longer. I need several of those.

I managed to snag the pilot set, but missed out on the ewok one. Hopefully I'll catch it the next time round.

Just saw this thread and tried to order them. Same thing here. Got the pilots, but no Ewoks. If DarkJedi5 had not posted the links, I'm not sure I would have found them. A search for ewok or pilot didn't find them.

I guess the ewok set was up on tue, but I was out of town, so I missed out on it again. The ewoks are still in the system. I can still bring them up on the recently viewed bar at the website. I hope this means they will be getting more in at some point.

At this point, the pilot set is still in stock, so anyone who's interested can pick this one up.

If anyone is picking one up, please consider getting two sets (will get you free shipping!) - this set is not coming to the UK, so I would really appreciate if someone could hook me up. Thanks! :)

I just ordered the ewok set and, as of this moment, the set is in stock at TRU.com. For those interested, you might want to move quick to order one.

My apologies sebilba. I moved quick to get this set and forgot that you were looking for one.

No worries. :) Someone else has offered to look out for the pilot set for me in stores, if no-one else orders one first.

Now I want the K-Mart exclusive set (I got TRU's). Anyone seen that out yet?

I need to order Lumat, too.

Wow: 8 Ewoks in one year!

And you can "make" more by switching the extra hoods and hats around from the TRU piece.

I bought the walker but they didn't have either of the 2-packs at the time. I'm a little confused on that point though. The slides at CVI said "out now" but the cards in the display cases said October. Since the Walker is actually out now I assumed the figures were supposed to hit at the same time, but maybe there is an intentional delay?

No it's a screw up of course.

Kind of the reverse for the TRU packs. The slides said Pilots on shelf August, and Ewoks on shelf October. I've just received both from TRU.com this week.

My Toyrs R Us had probably 4 of each, pilots and Ewoks.

I just gave the pilots a glance, as I'm not really interested in pre-Rogue Squadron pilots as much.

If they were as good as Rogue Squadron, they wouldn't have died over Yavin.

The Rogues saved the Alliance at Hoth, escorted the Millennium Falcon off Imperial occupied Coruscant, out of Gall, and as combined teams to help lesser-experienced pilots, won the Battle of Endor.

Then The Rogues won over the S-Ssruuvi, escaped the Chiss, defeated Admiral Daala, beat the Yuuzhan Vong - OK - you get the point.

Try to touch that Red and Gold Groups! (Though yeah, the legendary Commander Wedge Antilles and General Luke Skywalker were once part of Red Group. But you have to start somewhere.

Had a BOGO 75% off coupon through the TRU rewards program and used it to pick up both sets today (only good on 09/06 so you'd better hurry. Yakface has a link to it BTW.) $50 is a lot better than $80 so the ones I got online are going back.

There's another thread about these sets somewhere, but oh well. I got these sets this past weekend, and they're awesome!

The Ewok pack is one of my favorite items they've done recently. Flitchee, Nanta, Teebo, and Tippet are all complete repaints, and Kneesaa looks like Wicket's body but a bit fatter, so I'm not sure what's going on there. Anyway, since they all have new hoods and are completely different colors, they all look unique, so I don't feel that repainting them was a cop-out. Teebo was supposed to have a different head, as seen on the back of the box, but Lucasfilm made them go with a less aggressive one so they just repainted Logray. I've wanted Kneesaa for a really long time - my sisters had a book featuring her, and I remember it from well before I even saw any of the films, so it's a fun connection for me there. Flitchee (the blaster-toting Ewok) and Nanta (aka Corpsey) are two I didn't really expect to see, so getting them is awesome as well.

The Yavin Pilot pack is good as well, but not as mind-blowingly cool as the Ewoks. R5-D8 is so similar to R5-D4 that I probably wouldn't be able to tell which was which at first glance. The only difference designating Mauler Mithel from a generic TIE Pilot is that the Imperial logo on the right side of his helmet has a wedge cut out of it; I honestly didn't know that Vader's wingmen had unique helmets until their figures were announced, but it's cool to have them (he doesn't have the little gray numbers on his forehead - some previous TIE Pilots have tried to recreate this with small dots, but there are none to be found here). Tiree and Davish "Pops" Krail are the two other in-cockpit Y-wing pilots aside from Jon "Dutch" Vander, who was made waaaaay back in 2004. The back of the box shows that Pops was originally going to have an undone chinstrap, using the same mold as Porkins' helmet; this would have been accurate to his appearance in the film, but the figure just uses the regular helmet mold instead. So now there are only two in-cockpit Yavin pilots left to be made (aside from the upcoming Backstabber) - Theron Nett (Red 10) and Puck Naeco (Red 12, who appears only briefly when John D. Branon gets shot; Naeco blows up instead due to editing). Even though we've gotten so many pilots, and the non-Porkins ones both use the Luke body, I think it's a worthwhile purchase.
