EndorExpress has posted this cool update to the Starspeeder 1000 3.75″scale vehicle/playset available at Star Tours. The vehicle (and packaging) has been updated for 2016 to include a new Tour to Jakku scene inside the vehicle. The vehicle now costs $75.00 – the 2011 version was $54.99
Rebelscum forum member Nighthawk has posted some photos that reveal more of what we can expect with Hasbro’s new TIE Striker.
It appears the NERF features are removable, which should bring a collective sigh of relief to many buyers. And it looks like the wings may be comprised of a sturdier plastic than we saw with the TFA TIE Fighters.
5POA aside, maybe things are looking better for the actual quality of toys coming this Fall? Check out more pics as he continues to update with more details by clicking here.
Rebelscum forum member “Nighthawk” has posted new images from the packaging for Hasbro’s Rogue One U-Wing and TIE Striker vehicles that shed light on the NERF launching features of both fighters. It appears that the launcher for the U-wing is retractable (not removable) and the TIE’s is a fixed position cannon. These were found at retail in Canada ($59.99-$69.99).
Also, try to pick which eye to look at when staring at the Cassian Andor figure. :/

Thanks to Facebook follower Scott G. we can report that Star Wars Rebels Imperial Troop Transport has started to hit ToysRUs. Scott found his in Detroit, MI for only $10.99! Lots of Rebels goodies hitting stores lately so time to make a run!
The Target Exclusive AT-DP with AT-DP Driver now has a placeholder page on their website. It is currently unavailable for order but its listing should give indication that we can expect it in the next couple weeks. Remember, this item shares a DPCI (087-06-1832) with other exclusive and non-exclusive Class II vehicles so a DPCI will not guarantee finding a store with this set.
Thanks to Jedi Temple Archives for the heads-up.
PROS: Despite being repacks of prior releases, the inherent value of purchasing this set is there. The Phantom seems true to its on screen appearance — one can only hope that there is a Ghost in development. A great value as collectors can get a figure and vehicle for the price of the vehicle alone.
CONS: Paint on Kanan Jarrus could be a bit tighter as there are places of bleed over on the arms.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this set is worth adding to your collection.
