How are these packaged? Four of each in a case or two of each in a case?

There were four of each  at the TRU where I found them this morning, so I either came across 1 case or 2....

Two of each per case, from what I've seen evidence of.

As for the price variance reported on these sets, there's two TRU in my area, just a few miles apart from each other. One store often has prices about 10% higher than the other on about half the SW merchandise.  Both have these sets though, at $39.99 each.

$14.99 is a steal for the AT-ST drivers.  For the Ewoks, it sounds about right... it's awesome that Kmart apparently hasn't jacked up the prices on these.  It's a pleasant surprise.

Picked up these sets tonight at TRU.

Ewoks rock, as expected.  So does Porkins... astromech droid is okay, I guess... same goes for the TIE pilot.  But those other two pilot are terrible.  Hasbro needs to let go of that awful Luke sculpt.  I'm going to use the heads for generic customs, I guess.

I really agree on Dagobah Luke - remember the one that came with the X-Wing a few years back?  That one was a tease... I kind of thought we'd see it in a battle pack later, with Yoda and Dagobah Vader.  But an upgrade would be fantastic.

Pete_Fett just helped me out with some new loose TVC figures that are impossible to find in stores.  Awesome seller and I really appreciate his help!

142
That makes a lot more sense then since there's not a spot for it at Target stores but the new Wal-Mart planogram has it.  Didn't they have it online at Target.com?  Or am I imagining that?

143
There's some sellers on ebay that have that Luke cheap if you decide you want one but not the Fett - I've seen one for $3.99 recently, and I think shipping might even be free.

144
Sandtroopers reported that it has been found at a Target.

ps - I went to Target today and they did their restock and these figures were gone from the plannogram

They are on a back endcap now.

Not in my area.  Just the basic figures are on a back endcap.  3-pks/vehicles are nowhere to be seen.

Maybe I'm just too easy.

And maybe I'm just too hard on Hasbro on this. 

What bothers me is the "head" has what looks like a really, really good paint scheme that puts some depth into the sculpt, and almost looks like a matte finish... looks like top quality!

But the body and legs seem to be completely void of paint.  It looks like they just skipped that altogether... then the feet have a lot of brown paint... seems to be a little overkill to me... and it makes the foot the joint really looks too clean then.

I know it's just a toy, but I think they got a little zealous on the mud paint, and should have put less into that and a little more into weathering the legs/body.  I can't complain too much I guess, because I have a few of the Wal-Mart version and am pretty happy with those.

147
Col. Dietrich...  Seriously.  That's all I'm sayin'.  ::) 

******' Crystal Skull.

It's my least favorite of the films, but if not for that movie, we might not have gotten any figures made at all. 

I also don't think the paint job quality on the figures helped, or some of the figure selections - Belloq, for example, should have had his white suit from the get go, and his "ritual" outfit should have come with the Ark.  Toht should have been available early on, etc. 

It's too bad, really.

...I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of "extras" up for sale/trade from collectors later this year.

It sure is nice that Hasbro didn't double up on the Royal Guards/Republic Troops and can a couple of the TPM repacks...  ::)

I agree, the snowspeeder Luke sculpt is so much better.  It looks much more like a natural human body than the X-Wing Luke (especially hate those huge shoulders).

Nice pics, Anton - and nice score.

The height of the Luke sculpt doesn't bother me, it's the sculpt itself.  I always felt the arms look too big for the body.
