  • Comments: While on a routine patrol, Han and Chewie investigate the source of a strange signal, and discover an Imperial probe droid, which immediately fires upon the pair. When Han returns fire, the droid self-destructs ? but not before it tells the Empire where the Rebel's base is located. As the Alliance begins an immediate evacuation of Echo Base, R2-M5 helps coordinate plans and K-3PO provides tactical support to hold back the Imperial forces.


    Chewbacca: Chewie does his best to keep his friend Han out of trouble and uses his mechanical skills to repair the ever-malfunctioning Millennium Falcon.
  • Chewbacca is a repaint of the figure from 2006's VTSC Early Bird Kit.


    K-3PO: This protocol droid provides the Rebels with information on military tactics that he learned from his former owner Commander Narra.
  • K-3PO is a repaint of 2006's TSC C-3PO (with Ewok Throne).


    Han Solo: Han has stayed with the Rebels as long as he can, but can?t wait any longer to pay Jabba the Hutt the money he owes him ? or he's a dead man.
  • Han Solo is a repaint of the figure from 2008's TLC Han Solo & R-3PO set.



    Imperial Probe Droid: Used for reconnaissance and deep space exploration, Imperial probe droids gather data and transmit it over long distances.
  • Imperial Probe Droid is a repaint of 1997's POTF2 Probe Droid.



    R5-M2: This astromech droid provides tactical support to Rebel Alliance officer Shawn Valdez and plots escape routes during the evacuation.
  • R5-M2 is a repaint of 2006's TSC R5-D4

    Poll
    Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
    I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
    I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
    I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
    I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
    I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
    I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
