The two packs haven't shown up around here yet.  I'm not sure how many...if any...I will pick up, but I'm leaning towards getting the Han/Fett pack, as well as the Chewbacca (and Mace?) pack.  I might try to pick up the OT-related ones, but after that, I probably just as well get them all.  We'll see.  Kind of neat in a way I guess.

These things are everywhere around here.  Picked up a few and am a little disappointed.  They make a nice addition to my SW food collectibles but they are severly overpriced at 6.88 at Walmarts.  No articulation and not much more plastic then the Galactic Heroes line.  ???

I can't bring myself to break down and buy these yet.

I loved these when I saw them at C3.  Had to have them,  besides, they will be a big cross-collectible with both the SW collectors and M&M collectors.

I kinda balked at the price tonight, but then sucked it up and grabbed the 4 sets that were out.  Besides I finally had my my online SW Wal-Mart gift cards with me, so I could finally use them!

I found the 1st wave of these today at Wal-Mart while picking up a few groceries.  I picked up the Han/Boba set, and had the Luke/Leia one as well until I put it back.  I thought about getting the OT sets only (with a few extra PT figures), and I might still do that...but money is a little tight right now, so I just went with the Han/Boba set.  If that's all I get, that's fine.  This was Wal-Mart, so of course all of the sets were just strewn throughout the shelf below the figures.  Their section is just ridiculously messy and unorganized.  $6.88 each for these sets seems a bit steep to me though.

I've got all but the Emperor/Anakin and the Dooku/Maul sets.

And those are two I REALLY want!   ;D

Yeah. They look cool. I'm going for these instead of Hasbro's figures.

Dale's still drowning in the dark side.

Yep, darker and darker.  :P

Yeah so I found them at TRU last night, I picked up only the Clone and Vader pack. The only one that caught my eye.  :P

That's another one I'd be tempted to pick up as well Dale, it looks kind of neat.  I've had the Han/Boba set sitting on my desk here this week...and while it is kind of neat, I don't think these are anything great.  I was thinking about getting the OT characters, but now I'm not sure that I want to pick anymore up.  I think I can live without them.

I bought the only four I saw today so I'm still missing a few.  I bought the series pictured on the back of the Vader/Trooper package so I need the other half yet.  Unfortunately that leaves the package with Maul and the Boba sets to find, those will prove tough >:(

Picked up the Emperor/Anakin and the Clone/Vader sets today, they had a bunch of the other two sets so I'll go back and get them a little later. Now just need to find the other 4.
