I know, I was mocking Hasbro's absurdity.
They always mention tooling costs. But then for an exclusive, they sculpt an all new figure when they could've reused parts, then make an entire repaint wave of $8 to $10 carded releases.
Back on subject. I got the Defense set since it was $5 off. It's okay. But really for die-hards. The turret seems so hollow and static, because it is. It makes me realize why Hasbro doesn't do playsets. I can see why the AT-ST (attack set) is harder to locate; it just seems more fun. Also, K-3PO figure can't sit, not that he ever did, but I'd like the option to.
Piece of a greater picture (diorama), the battle of Hoth, the set is good. Just not sure that's a road I'll pursue (money and space)...I'll enjoy it more when it snows.
