I'll take extra senate pods from anyone who doesn't want them. :)

It appears from those pictures that we actually get the Chancellor/Emperor's little tower as well. I'm definitely down for several of these sets, I don't need too many though, since I do have 9 of the #6 shocks.

Yeah I'm really not sure about it, when I first saw it it looked like cardboard through the front window, but the picture on the back of the box almost looks real.

I think it's just the Senate pod again. The tower thingie looks quite a bit different.

I'm glad to see that Hasbro has used the word "awesome" to describe their product on the back of the box. Now I'm sold.

Yeah I gotta find people wanting Senate Pods and NOW.  :)  The figures though, are "eh"...  I never got that Palpy figure I'd get him cheaper later, so I'll take it...  Yoda, I can BS that into customizing fodder I think, as it is generic...  The pod I could give 2 ***** about honestly so I'm all about selling those to people who want htem.

The Clones though...  Oh Glorious Clones.

Those are some fantastic early shots.  Can't wait to pick this set up hopefully in some extra quantity if I can afford it.  Nice to have confirmation of which Clone they used too.

That's a nifty figure, and ya get two.  Not too bad a deal there for certain.

I think most will look past the Palpy/Yoda easily and while I don't care for it, I'm sure most will enjoy the Senate Pods.  Hell who wouldn't dig displaying most of their Senator figures in that thing?  The Clones are almost icing on the cake then.  Nice set.

Yeah Jesse, and at least Target didn't just take that Red clone and package it individually in a nifty exclusive collector's case with a bullseye on it and a $12.99 sticker.  At least we're only paying $10 a pop for the shockies, but we get 2 pieces of **** in Yoda and Palps and a Senate pod while we're being raped.  Guess that's better than nothing.

If anyone doesn't want their Senate Pods, I'll pay $5 each for them.

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.

It's not an army builder set but I didn't expect one anyway...  I figure if I can get the 2 Shocktroopers, sell the pod(s), and keep the Yoda and Palpatine for some kind of fodder (fodder is fodder, though someone may want them so I can trade/sell them off too perhaps) then it balances out for me...  I'll obviously not be stocking up on this set by any means, but if I can get 2 shocktroopers for a reasonable price and sell the pods off making up some of the price...  I'm pretty happy with that.

Anyone heard any more on release date besides Spring? Do we think these will hit in April?
