Love the ET in the pics, Ook!  That actually looks really cool aside from the force lightning graphics.

Man, I had 3 of those E.Ts and I traded off all but 1. I could've had a whole delagation pod.

Yeah, the in-package appeal is good on this.  Don't have one yet, but it's worth adding methinks.

Ilove these things; I'm hooked. I think I'll get 2 more. I wouldn't mind a whole display wall with pods and senators from various planets. A larger retool for the chancellor and his aids would be bitchin', too. 8)

I'd like to see more too, and have wanted to since first seeing EPI for the midnight showing back in 1999.  I guess it took an action scene in the Senate to finally get something like this made at all...

The pod and the Shocks rock this Battlepack, really nice. But why Hasbro! Why! Why do you condem me to buy repack after repack of figures I've already bought! Do I need and army of Yodas (well that might be cool) and Palpatines?!

I know, I don't need more that Yoda either... but at least the Palpatine is good custom fodder.   ;)

Yoda can be a Jawa with some Epoxy putty. Chewie's right, Palps is fodder. The pod is fine. The clones are great. Brilliant!

Well, I never bought a Palpatine figure until I bought this battle pack and getting rid of extra Yoda figures isn't a problem when you have three sons. ;)

Got 2 more today. Man, I would love to have a senate rotunda display with species from all over the galaxy represented! :D It's just too bad they barely fit 2 of most figures. With the Wookiees' big ol' feet, you can forget squeezing in Yarua and say a Wookiee guard. Can't even get Mas Amedda in with Palpatine. They're pretty neat, though. And I love the #41 shock troopers. ;D

I got 2 yesterday. The SA Shocktroopers are fantastic, though it seems like the paint bands on the arms are sloppy.

Definitely going to be ditching the senate pods , Yodas, and Palpatines.

I got this set today, and I love it. The best part has to be the Senate pods. They can kind of double as Clone patrol craft, since they have two seats and room for two guys standing. The Yoda and Palpatine are meh. But it does give me an extra set so I can re-enact the Senate dule and have my Basic versions of them in neutral poses on my shelf. The shock troopers are just fantastic.

I picked one up today, and I am pretty impressed. Considering single figures are costing us $7.00 each, 4 for 20.00 (2 of which are great clones) plus a senate pod is a great value. That's not something we get to say a lot this year (cough SWSHOP $15.00 basic figs cough).

So, I took the prongs off one of those small doll stands and propped a pod on it with Saga Chancellor Palpatine in it, floating above the other senate characters on my shelf. Now I'm tryng to decide what I could use to attach a couple to the rails my shelves are attached to.


Any ideas?

I was able to get a few sets of these... wow!  Very nice job Hasbro.  Although I don't like the Palpatine/Yoda repacks this is a good value for $20.00 I think.
