Do we know how much this will be at retail? I might buy one just for the Wampa!

With the way the last round went; you might be lucky to get it at $5.00. But this line is $19.99 regular price.

My newest wampa is from 1980, so I’ll definitely pick this up!

Yeah, I also still have one of those classic Kenner Wampa's. You know, the one made from plastic that slowly turns yellow when exposed to sunlight.

I would love to pick up a new Wampa thats all nice and detailed. Definitely getting this one.

That's what I figured. I might hold off and hopefully it'll be a similar case as this wave! It would be awesome to get this for less than $10 eventually! :)

The torso of mine is completely yellow. I tried the peroxide trick a while back but had little success.

I toyed with the idea of picking up the Vader/Probe Droid set but never did. This one is a must have. I'll pick this set up, probably when it is first released and at full price.

The Vader + Probedroid set is really nice. Especially because there aren't that many versions of the Probedroid to begin with (nor versions that are to scale, or are movie accurate). There's only one in the classic Kenner line that comes with a small playset, which I still don't have btw, but would like to get my hands on eventually. It's nice to have an updated version that has fully articulated arms and looks this good. They could have left out the dumb spring-loaded missile feature, but apart from that it's a great figure. Vader looks great too, and both him and the probedroid have force-link sounds.

Funny side story: None of my friends know much about Starwars collecting, so when I showed them the forcelink feature, they were stunned. Haha!

Andy Kwan on the Toy Run FB page found the above at his local Walmart and was able to purchase them.

I forgot all about the Wampa even being released! Weird they used TLJ packaging...

Edit: check out the bike's box art, looks like a variant swoop is pictured in the background.
