Didn't really see any Mission Fleet specific threads. I saw some at Target today. I didn't grasp how small they were until I saw them in person. I took a comparison shot next to a JP figure for scale reference. I actually think this could be good for kids It will be easier (and cheaper) to do vehicles for this scale. They almost seem to scale with Mega Construx mini-figures, but I'm pretty sure Mission Fleet figures are larger.

From what I read these are 2.5" and Mega Construx figures are 2".

Maybe they do scale better to Imaginext? 🤷‍♂️

I couldn't resist the Mandalorian/Child/Speeder set this morning at Target. The style is quite different than Galactic Heroes/Jedi Force but height wise, they're about the same. I may just mix them in. The child doesn't look half bad with the 3.75 Mandalorian figure either. The pram( I think thats what their calling it) isn't screen accurate. I'm guessing this was an early concept design because I've seen a Bluetooth speaker with the same design.

The Pram doesn't look too out of scale, although might fit better with TBS Mando figure.

I am curious how a 3.75" figure looks on the Speeder that came with it, if you don't mind posting a pic of that comparison.
Thanks.

So far ive picked up mando and boba. I think i will go all in on this line next paycheck. They are a nice blend of looking good, affordable, and have enough play features that I can display them and wont tense up if the nephews want to mess with them. Probably leave off the missile launchers for display and get them out for the kids.

Finally saw the Mando set at my local Target. After all the cool pics you guys posted I decided it was worth getting for my 3.75" figures. Actually they had a bunch of Mission Fleet. They had the larger sets like the X-wing, Tie Fighter, and Anakin's Jedi Starfighter as well. I think they had all the sets out as far as I could tell.

If I was a kid I think I would be all over this stuff. Plenty of figures and vehicles in the line. I was thinking the Solo movie Falcon toy would work well for this scale of figures. I picked one up from Burlington Coat Factory a while back. Might be worth checking out if you guys are looking for one. I want to say it was $20.

Picked up the Mission Fleet Falcon today. I kept waffling on it and decided to bite as they (Target) only had the one. Mostly bought it as I've had the idea rattling around my head for a while for a custom 'somehwhat to scale' Action Fleet Falcon.

I really wish they'd do something like this not stylized, like action fleet or even like this line but more akin to the Armies of Middle Earth line. Detailed interiors and ships, etc.

The Solo movie Falcon that was sold at the Disney Store is basically an action fleet toy. I have it on display with some Micro Machine figurines and some Hot Wheels vehicles like Han's Speeder and the Imperial Patrol Speeders. Scales decently with those.

I think they did a decent job on the Jedi Starfighter and Darth's Tie in particular. It's too bad the X-wing is a bit on the stumpy side. The Falcon looks good as well. Maybe someone can 3D print a better looking cannon for the top?

That Solo falcon set is one of my great "should've bought it when it was available" regrets; when it does come up on ebay now the sellers are lets just say, optimistic. It was the driving force behind purchasing this, not chancing a repeat performance with this one. :sneaky:

Target finally put some of these out, so I picked up The BARC speeder with Obi Wan and Chewie since I know I’m buying the Falcon at some point.

Pleasantly surprised that they have wrist articulation and the pegs move independently of each other. I honestly expected them to function more like the imaginext stuff where both legs move together.

Awesome, thank you!
I am now glad that I pre-ordeerd this, it seems close enough to me based on how he ride the speeder in the show. might even get a second one.

From the right angle it looks like a great fit. I'd say its only about an inch shorter than it should be - I only wish his feet met the rests.

Yeah, the bike looks decent. I can imagine someone could really do a great job customizing it to fit the 3.75" figure properly and make it more in keeping with TVC style.

Once I'm able to get one physically in hand it will be easier to see what needs to be done, but most people likely have the parts laying around somewhere and just don't know it.

I found the Mando Mission Fleet set and picked it up - I had no intention of supporting another scale, but baby yoda and the accessories are very close to 3.75 scale, and the price is decent. $15 for all this or $10 for the TBS baby yoda? I think we got ripped off on the TBS version. I'll probably keep this set packaged until they announce what's coming in TVC, so I know whether to return it. Gotta admit though, these kid focused lines are a way better deal for consumers than TVC or TBS.

Found the set yesterday. I may end up opening it up. If anyone wants the little Mando guy from the set let me know.

Some photos. In my opinion the best set up for Baby Yoda is to swap the head with the TBS figure.

I had no interest in this line, but after seeing them on the pegs in person (these aren't moving AT ALL in my area), I'm contemplating getting Luke and seeing how I feel about getting more from there.

I don't like that it's another banana visor situation and that any other pilots will probably have the same issue, but some of the other sets look cool enough that I might wanna jump in on this line. But also, i don't think I want to invest if this is something with a short shelf life.

I'm really enjoying this line so far. Ive gotten Boba, Mando, Rex, and Vader. Think Obi-Wan and thr clone trooper will be next.

Shameless ad: Similar to this line was the Galactic Heroes. I have a couple of lots of those for sale/trade in my thread (link in signature, Jabbas Skiff lot and Jabba’s Palace/Rancor Pit lot). Thanks for looking.

I bought the Millennium Falcon. I really like it, it has a lot of playable features, but it is similar to other lines.

I picked up the Mandalorian set yesterday, mainly to use the hover crib with the TBS Child. I gotta say though, this is a cool little set! The Child and hover crib are way too big compared to Mando, but man I just dig it! I saw Boba Fett the other day and kind of wish now that I hadn't passed him up.
I've also seen the Falconand I thought it looked really nice from the packaging.

Picked up the Falcon since I’m a sucker for Han and Falcon stuff. I dig it. Probably $5-$10 overpriced, but considering I can’t find anything else I’m looking for in stores, I’ll deal.

Baby Yoda TBS is a wait till 5 below for me. But obviously the Mando pack here was designed with the 3.75" collector in mind.

My mando set came in from Amazon yesterday. I like it. My son really liked it. That means I will be buying more I guess :)

these sets are kinda cool. Picked up the Mandalorian set today on lunch. I'll be curious to see where Hasbro takes the line going forward. I'd love to see the following:

Imperial AT-AT with AT-AT Driver and Imperial Snow Trooper
Imperial TIE Fighter with TIE Pilot
Sith Starfighter with Darth Vader (repaint of Anakin's Jedi Interceptor)
Slave 1 with Boba Fett
Imperial Speeder Bikes with Luke, Leia, and Scout troopers
AOTC Jedi Starfighter with Obi Wan Kenobi
AOTC Slave 1 with Jango Fett (repaint of the ESB version)
TPM AAT with Battle Droid

I'm happy with the Mandalorian set. The baby Yoda looks pretty good with my 3.75" action figures. If they wanted to give me a set with Babu Frik I'd buy that as well... other than that I'd like to see the following:

These are the 6" figures, but as we see above the Mission Fleet Baby Yoda is approximately the same size. I just wondered on size comparisons. The 3.75" DO is still a little bigger than than mission fleet baby yoda.

Yep, sounds like any $40 purchase qualifies for a $10 GC towards "select GE" products. Since they don't have any of the GE items I'm after it does me no good, because I don't even know if they'll ever be stocked.

Is this a store thing or something you saw online?
