Ok. Will probably get one anyway from there as someone is always after one. Will let you know in 17 days time if I had success!

Thanks to foxdaddy for Rogue One info. Now I did say I was not going to get the vehicles but these rebels figures are quite likeable. So got the two here and another figure. All from The Entertainer today. Erza and AT-DP were £7.33 each so not bad I think?

I'd only bought The Last Jedi packaging of this a few months back as well Taff...not sure if its a straight repack or not ?...I'd read somewhere that the BB-8 figure in the Solo pack is better finished than The Last Jedi pack but I've not compared the two side by side yet

Nor me but jedi temple archives says they are all new sculpts based on digital files of previous versions. Slight repaints and tooling differences from previous versions are also mentioned.
Hope that helps with info?

Treated myself to this and arrived today! It has been a bit elusive so got there in the end.
Most modern wanted updated to reflect i only need erso and rau to finish off figures ( excluding even more elusive US Walmart and Target multipacks).

Assault Walker with Sgt Stormtrooper. Cannot leave it there for £7.33!
All standard Class 1 vehicles obtained - think they will do for now! :D

I always enjoy looking on this thread although forget to post up the odd new item I have. Some great items have been on here recently and it's always nice to see what people have been picking up.

Here's my latest 2 pickups and even though I decided with Solo to bow out of picking up any more modern SW figures I thought these figures looked so cool that I couldn't resist.

The sculpts and card art is fantastic on these so it was hard to let them pass.

This keeps happening! :lol:

I returned to get the Desert Landspeeder from The Entertainer as I find the reference to my list source (Jedi Temple Archive) intriguing as it states under Class II vehicles that the Desert Landspeeder under Wave 2 was cancelled. Obviously not in Rogue One film, but with its packaging I wonder if the repack idea was shelved. Did it get released everywhere or just Eùrope (Europe packaging)? Perhaps US collectors can answer if they actually had it or not?
The rear states The Force Awakens.

How the A Wing got in the bag I do not know but at £11.99 each, quite a bit for the pennies there.
