More On The Wal-Mart Early Bird Exclusive Posted by Curto on March 27, 2005: First of all, RangerX writes in to let everyone know that yesterday's report and says the pallet with the Carry Cases is a different pallet than the one from the Early Bird one. So, while it's confirmed there is a new Carry Case on the way, this is not the Early Bird set. So what is the Early Bird set? Glad you asked. It's a reproduction of the original Early Bird Certificate from 1977, the one where fans could get the Vintage Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and R2-D2 figures. The dates have been updated to 2005, although the same drawings from the originals are used again. Also included are stickers, a replica backdrop of the original kit featuring the original figures, figure stands, an honorary Hyperspace pass, and a few other small items. It also comes with its own case to protect it. It's not yet clear if this can actually be redeemed for action figures, or if its just a nice collectible, but with the retail price under $30.00, there should be plenty available for those that want them.
