$20? $20? $20?!Originally posted by Mark @ RS in a News Report
Here's the latest update on the Trooper head variations that were originally planned for the POTJ Imperial Officer and Rebel Fleet Trooper. We can expect the first launch of this concept with the new Endor Rebel Soldiers, which features a clean and goateed head variant. It is uncertain at this point if Hasbro will reissue the previous POTJ troopers in the Saga assortment, since the line has slight stylistic differences and is an entirely new collection altogether. But the concept is certainly moving forward with future figures in the Saga line. The goateed soldier will be the first one released with the second version shipping out in a later assortment.
Hasbro also tells us that the Endor Rebel Soldier 4 Pack, which will be released through the Fan Club later this year, will be a reissued mold of the POTF2 Endor Rebel Soldier. The pricepoint will be the same as the Stormtrooper set at $19.99.
White mailer box, baggie packaged figures, reissued mold for figures and accessories, and they want $20?!?!!? Some army-builder sets! If anyone builds a time-machine to go back to the TRU clearance sale...let me know. I know it's $5 a figure, but that just ain't right, these sets should just hardly pass $10.
