Well I wouldn't consider 2 Shocktroopers (SA), a Senate Pod, a Yoda, and a Palpatine a "rape" for $20 (if that turns out to be its cost...  I don't trust Target).  For what it is, it's worth it at the assumed price.

Considering they were selling the Clone Battlepack for 20 while selling the regular Brick and morter Battlepacks for 25 I would suspect the same thing.
I remember my dream now.

Actually, here in Utah I can pull up on the store scanners that the info on this. No isle is assigned though and not in the stockroom.

Well, they're out now here in CA. I grabbed a couple of sets using the DPCI number this morning. They did ring up at $19.99.

I have to say, as happy as I am to have an SA version of the shocktrooper, there a few things about this particular incarnation of the figure that disappoint me.

First, the white plastic is slightly dull. After putting it next to the lovely Utapua clone, with its shiny white armour, the matte look of this figure seems, well, wrong.

Also, the red paint portions aren't very precisely applied. The lines on the bicep area of the arm are pretty sloppy. When you hold this SA version next to the #6 repaint, you can see that the definition of the paint apps isn't as clear and crisp or accurately painted as they could have.

Overall, he feels a little cheap. I still think it's better having an SA version of the figure than putting up with the #6 version's action feature and sculpt compromises made to accommodate the feature, however. It's just not as nice as it could have been.

Senate pod rocks, though.  :)

God, so much stuff at once... :-\ Nice to know they're not $25, though.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I'm wanting this for the Yoda.

Just kidding. It's the Senate Pods that really interest me the most.

I checked my local Target this moring. Not in stock, but at least the $20 tag came up.

I'll buy a pod off you, if you don't want it. Then I only have to hunt one these damned things.

so true.  I do not carea bit for the Yoda or the Emperor but I crave the shocktroopers and the senate pod.

Yep, there will be many extra Yodas and Palpatines now in people's collections.

Not that they would ever have done this, but I would of rather had seen this as the set -

- Emperor (red outfit w/ hood)
- Padme (senate sculpt)
- Shocktrooper x 2
- Senate Pod

I'm hoping these will start to show up on the East Coast this week.

I'm looking to get three of these. Two to open and one to keep MIB.

Gotta have at least two Senate pods. Perhaps if these go on clearance, I'll get more just for the shocktroopers and pods, but somehow, I doubt they'll get that far. Even the "Assault on Coruscant" battle packs from the summer didn't stick around long enough to hit clearance in my area.
