Now that's more like it - even though really, with the way those Yavin and Ewok packs were so overpriced, it was obvious (in hindsight) that TRU planned for a BOGOF event way, way in advance of the holidays.  I finally caved and bought the two multipacks since they were reasonably priced at last. 

Kind of depressing however that this is probably my last retail SW purchase for the year... there seems to be no sign of anything else coming to retail for the rest of the year, making this a pretty dismal year for buying SW overall.  Not that there wasn't a lot of great high-quality figures to buy, just that they never showed up with any kind of regularity and quantity.

Wowzers! That's a great deal! Now is the time for those who haven't picked up the Ewok and Pilot sets. Heck, I might grab another speeder bike.

After a long pause on visits to TRU due to prices on multipacks I think I'll make the trip today.  About time a decent sale came on!

Aren't the 3.75" figures excluded?

I think it's just the single carded figures that are excluded. It's a strangely worded ad, sale on "action figures" excluding 3 3/4 action figures, which is the main star wars action figure line. Anyway, I ended up repurchasing the ewoks and pilots packs and I got 2 speeder bikes. Beware if you buy them on the same bill, they'll try and give you the 2 speeder bikes free and make you pay for the 2 $55 ewok/pilot packs. Do the ewoks/pilots on one bill and two speeder bikes on a separate bill.

I was surprised at how many pilot and ewok packs were there. Maybe a dozen on the shelf. Only two bikes left after me though. And the SW section in general looked like it had a chunk sold out of it, which is actually nice to see. Still tonnes of stock, but there were some definite gaps in the display.

As a bonus I had a coupon for 40 extra air miles. :)

Only the single packs are excluded.  Ya, the ad is a bit confusing.   

Like Darth Cujo wrote, pilots, ewoks, and speeder bikes are all part of the deal.

TRU's website is sold out of ewoks, but they still have pilots and bikes.  Add a cheap pack of Redakai cards ($2.50) to a couple of bikes and they ship free.
