Agreed. They need a new Endor pack. There's plenty of pilots left in that briefing and cockpit shots. Or perhaps an EU pack.Or at least they're selling just enough so that they're not a total loss.
After all they're retools, so for the most part it's cheaper than all new tooling.
My guess is if these were brand new figures these wouldn't be cost effective at all.
Not that I don't like them though, I'm definitely open to more. Possibly a mix of Y-Wing, and B-Wing Pilots though, I've seen too much orange for a spell.
I always imagined the rebels went to pick up the Tantative IV after the Imperials sent the distress signal and set it adrift above Tatooine. They salvaged R2-Q2 and R4-M9 off the ship and then picked up a few more off Tatooine before heading back to the base.Love the picture up there. I always imagine Leia telling Dodonna that she just escaped the Death Star with two guys she's conflicted about but feels they may be being tracked. Dodonna tells her they need some more astromechs if the Imps are on their way. Leia explains they had time to round up a few before escaping the Death Star and that blonde guy, the one she is currently crushing on, knows of more wandering alone in the Streets of Mos Eisley.

The multiple similar Astros is a problem that continued into the P.T. either with practical props or CG ones.
R5-D8 being inaccurate is 1/2 true since we never see below his neck.
