Ghost will be cash money.   maybe wookie gunship and resistance, but the others (TF, FO Snowspeeder, walker) are crappy imo.  still these 3 in 1 packs seem to command a slight premium and since it has its own UPC should be a kosher way of selling a bundle on amazon.  i wonder how long this series will continue for.

Has anyone ever opened one of these 3 in 1 boxes? I'm sitting on some Series Two 3 in 1s from Costco last year.... is it 3 microfigher boxes packed inside the long box, or is it loose bags of parts? Just wondering if one can part out the individual ships from these 3 in 1s? 

Haven't seen any at Costco in Canada yet. Saw some Juniors Race Car Rallys 10673 at 30% off [edit: last Saturday], grabbed a couple for diversity.

What will TLG do with the microfighters next year? When series 3 was released, there were six new microfighters, but the at-at and snowspeeder from series 2 were still produced as well (the other four sets from series 2 were retired).

So now we've heard that series 4 is only going to have four new microfighters, do you guys think they will keep two from series 3 in production? If so which ones? It's likely going to be a "pair", as all the microfighters are marketed in pairs:

  • x-wing + first order snowspeeder
  • at-dp + wookie gunship
  • ghost + tie advanced

The at-at and snowspeeder were also a "pair".

Or perhaps they will even keep four or six in production?

I personally think that the ghost and x-wing are most likely to stay, but they are not a pair so perhaps they will keep four in production and only retire the at-dp + wookie gunship.

What do you guys think?

As a reminder, this is the rumored lineup for series 4:

  • U-wing
  • TIE striker
  • Y-Wing
  • Krennic's Shuttle

Two things to note: there are no Rebels microfighters and there is another TIE variant coming out.

Now that the microfighters are all known and available I though I'd update this thread with the available information as it's probably a bit overkill to make a seperate thread for every individual microfighter.

Jang has made reviews for all of them as well (click on titles).

Personally, I'm really digging the minifigures, especially the rebel pilots.

Their helmets are amazingly detailed.

Only thing I don't like is how they still use a print on the face for one of the visors (in this case the Y-Wing Pilot).

The TIE Striker and Krennic's shuttle are okay, though I think the TIE Striker is just a step down from the TIE Advanced and Krennic's Shuttle looks a little bland.
