If Hasbro can give us 5 Ewoks in a BP, then they should of given us 5 droids in the Royal Starship pack, and thrown R2-M5 in there as well.

I really don't mind them scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to droids and pilots (gotta collect them all!), but I really do with they'd have dumped the Imperial, and put a second astro in each set. 2 pilots w/their droids would have been much nicer to me.
I'd rather they dumped the astromechs and had a set of 4 pilots. I'd much rather have another Rebel in there or even an extra TIE pilot. We have 100's of Astromech designs at this point. Just goes to show you can't please all the people all the time.
I found them at my local TRU. They are ok. Grizz Fixx was good, so too the grey R5 and the Asian Pilot.
I wasn't at all impressed by the other figures though. The B-wing and A-wing pilots are just redos with new headsculpts. I'll likely pose them holding their helmets so the difference in heads shows up the most.
I was surprised that the TIE Pilots were both clones however. I would have though those two would have been different.
The R2 looks like a rehash of the Disney R2, just not metallic.
At least I had a couple of $5 coupons for these sets. So I got them for $10 less.
I think Hasbro is really scraping the bottom of the barrel here though.
This could have just been one set with Grizz Fixx, the Asian Pilot, and the 2 astromechs. That would have been worth it to me.
Managed to score Set 1 today by chance at my local TRU. Pretty nice all around - now to find set 2.
After the discussion here a couple weeks ago about the number of astromechs the line has since the POTF2 relaunch, I gathered all unique releases that I have (and I know I'm missing one or two somehow) but as of today I have 84, including Build-A-Droids, excluding Clone Wars
And just for trivia sake: R5 Astromechs that use the Early Bird R2 (glued panel) sculpt: 6
TAC R5-F7 (Y-wing Pack-in)
TLC R5-M2 (Hoth Recon Patrol Battle Pack)
TLC R5-K6 (Scramble on Yavin Battle Pack)
SOTDS R5-P9 (Battle Over Endor 1 of 2)
