This news comes from rebelscum, and it sounds like it's pretty dang cool. Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be just another rumor that never happens. But we have seen the 2 Endor Rebel Soldiers at Toy Fair, so that does lend some credance. Not to mention the fact they have assortment numbers for them. Here is the word from Rebelscum.com:
You say you want troops? You say you want your troops to come with their own galactic armory? According to a close source, Hasbro plans on releasing a new 3.75 Figure and Accessory set assortment (Asst. 32532) this year. Here's the breakdown of the figures and their case assortment:
32533 Death Star Set with Trooper x 2
32534 Hoth Invasion with Rebel Soldier x 2
32537 Endor Patrol Set with Scout x 2
32538 Jedi Arena Set with Battle Droid x 2
The exact release date and pricepoint is still to be determined. We'll make sure to update you as we learn more!
Sounds sweet as hell, hopefully it comes true. Us Star Wars fans have been screaming for army builders for a while now. This will go a long way twords feeding that needs. Hopefully the trooper listed in the Death Star Set is a Death Star Trooper and not a Stormtrooper.
MTFBWY and HH!!
