I'll be picking up 3 of these myself. I'm hoping these will hit in the numbers that the Coruscant packs hit. I would be nice to not have to fight so hard to get them.

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

 :)

While I agree that I would have liked that better too, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense really to have Padme in there considering she was somewhere else in the galaxy being force choked.  I'm not sure I want to see Hasbro branch even further into illogic at this point, they have it covered off pretty well as it is. 

I think I can be happy with one set of these, though I'd be up for extra pods as well.  Nice way to display Mas Amedda and friends from the prequels.  I'm also fortunate that I'd skipped Yoda every time out with the ROTS stuff, so at least it's not a duplicate.

For anyone willing to trade figures for pods, what's a fair trade 1 pod for 1 figure or 1 pod for 2 figures?

I have an extra pod for trade. I'm interested in the shocks.

You want the shock troopers from this set for your pod, or any want item? I might take the pod, but I won't have any Senate troopers for trade; I want them.

I was referring to the "Declaration of an Empire" speech when Padme was present and Palpatine is wearing his red hood/robes.   She witnessed his speech and was not getting choked yet.  Remember this scene -



The Shocktroopers might not make perfect sense here but seeing that most people want them... that is what I meant.

I might be up for trading 1 or 2 of my Shocks for your Pods...let me know what a fair trade would be for you.

FYI for all you Aurebesh geeks out there, the console on the Senate Pod reads: "SW Fans Rule"

A nice little nod from Hasbro

I'm surprised it didn't say "Star Wars fans are suckers!"

Thats what I'm trying to figure out. What does everyone else think?

In a way, we both save ourselves the trouble (and money) of having to buy an extra set for the addition piece(s.)
