So, despite clicking way too many crates (I have 300 tokens right now), I have yet to find it. Enough people have confirmed that it does, indeed, drop from a crate. I’m not going to buy it until I get the full amount I want (371–already have 1 sitting in storage) because if I buy it first and then get one while I’m getting enough for the speeder, that will suck. Similarly, if I buy the speeder first and don’t have enough for the pet, I’ll panic as I’d rather buy the pet first.
In the meantime, lots of rumors about the “check back later” quests being up…but it doesn’t seem like it. Could be they are on individual timers…that would be kind of evil though.
