Got my Weekly Previews update Emailer from DIAMOND UK last night and scanning through it I found
"Star Wars Episode 1 Figures
Rush released in time for Christmas - some brand new Star Wars figures. Choose from FX-7, Queen Amidala, Rebel Trooper, Imperial Officer, Snaggletooth, Eeth Koth, Teebo, Bo'shek and R4-M9. Available November."
Now most of this we knew about but the New is the R4-M9 ( I assume it is another R2 repaint ?) and I thought Teebo was coming with the AT-ST ??
Diamond will have only printed what Hasbro UK have offered them. Shows what great info Hasbro UK are given to work with.
