OK guys, it's heading towards the end of this year, and i haven't managed to hear anything about the release of the 8028 Mini Snowspeeder.

Now I've done some research, and I've found that this mini, will not be released (deja-vu anyone? *cough* 6968 *cough*)

Here is the set:

And most of you will know, 3 minis were seen to come out this year (not including 20006 clone turbo tank, thats not counted because it's brickmaster)

And i found this quote from steve witt:

... I believe there is one more for the year (3 showed up on FBTB and EB several months, one of which will never be released). So there's not an official Mini's line, but there are mini's. They're very limited in their release though.

We have seen 8028 Mini Tie fighter, and the V-19.That leaves the 8029 Snowspeeder to be the unreleased set.

Intresting though... i might e-mail brickset and tell them, they still have it as 'yet to be released'

Prehaps you could update it's status in the 2009 pics thread to '2008/Unreleased' KimT?

That's too bad, but since these minis are so rare and since you can easily make these with the help of PAB, I really mind.

I do not understand why these are so rare.  Why do they not release them.  Even if they only do at shop at home.  Come on TLC.  These size sets look great in my cube.
