We've received a couple of store reports telling us that Kmart are currently offering some special value offer vehicle two-packs for around $15-$16.50, and while the vehicles are a few years old, you can't really complain about the price! From what we've seen so far, the packs comprise Vulture Droid/Xanadu Blood, Jedi Turbo Speeder/Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter and Snowspeeder/Cloud Car, though your mileage may vary. Thanks to Rebelscum readers Kyle D. and Dan L. for the heads-up.

Following on from yesterday's report about more and more Star Wars Rebels product showing up in stores, Rebelscum reader Vincent P. wrote in to let us know that Rebels fever has hit Singapore, where he picked up the animated Stormtrooper at a local Toys "R" Us, adding that the store only had one of each character on the pegs. With the vehicles already out, hopefully this means that we won't have to wait much longer for the new figures!

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.

1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
