I wish they would of done these like the 3" McFarlane Sport Figures. And not thrown together. I like the Yoda and Aayla but not the Chewie and Tarful.  :-\

Much cooler looking but I don't see myself buying any of these.  I'll only get whatever sets have Anakin and Vader down the road.

While I'm NOT pleased with this idea overall, some of the execution is cool.  I may be getting some like the Hoth Troopers just because they're the best little Hoth Troopers Hasbro's ever done (sadly). 

I think if these had been 3.75" 3-packs they'd honestly have gone over better, and that's not to say I'd have been happier, but if Hasbro had a format where the 3.75" line was the focus including Unleashed, I think it'd make everyone happier.  Make the basic line an articulation focused one, and make the 3-packs the odd deluxe thing here and there, and that'd be a bit more ideal...  I'd be more into a 3-pack of Hoth Troopers if I knew a SA one existed and they were all int he same scale and were complements instead of separate items.

I just saw the next wave at the local show.  They look a lot better than the first wave, paint shcemes are much improved.

We got 3 cases of the new wave.  I just can't get into these.

Me neither - I'm still not interested...though the OT wave sounds promising.

Maybe I'm just sick of prequel clones....blasphemy!

Looking for more/new opinions...

I too kind of shyed away at first with these.  I really liked  these little packs, but NOT at $9.99!  However, now, they seemed to be pretty darn impossible to find in my area (and a few other areas I looked) only seeing them the first week they came out.  Now I'm second guessing myself.  I guessed these suckers might hit clearance so I held off thinking I may be able to grab them around $5ish, which at that price I'd be all over them.

So, I have a contact that could grab them for me at $9.99.  Are these tough in everyone's area?  Still deciding if I should jump on it. Does anyone see them warming pegs anywhere (I only see the utapauu on shelves)

I don;t like spending $30 on 3 packs, but I don't want to kick myself in the rear later if they continue the line and bring out some really nice sets.  First time in a while i've been "iffy" on something like this.

Thanks.

I still see the Utapau natives, and saw 1 Cody squad today.

I also saw a case worth of the new ones. I only bought a Grees elite for a Barc paint guide.

I do not need a new scale in a new-to-me toyline, which is how I think most people feel. What really irratated me was that Hasbro was making figures in Unleashed that the were not making in the regular line. I guess that is changing though?

I recently picked up the Wookiee Warriors and 327th Star Corps sets. Totally bitchin'. ;D You guys say what you want about these, but *sigh* I'm sold on this line--although I foresee sticking to the prequel stuff only.

As army builders, these mini-Unleashed are more space- and money-economical than the 3.75". I can build awe-inspiring hordes of troopers much easier than I can with $6 fullsize figures. Plus, they're pretty sturdy and don't have the "sneeze and they'll blow away" aspect that turned me away from the WOTC minis (to say nothing of that whole randomizing thing). Believe it or not, I can actually see this line siphoning away some of the funds I would otherwise have spent on 3.75". My sole complaint is that they're really overpackaged, and seem a tad overpriced.

Let the stoning commence.

I saw the newer Kashyyyk waves at Target last weekend, and had the Chewie/Yoda pack in hand for a while before deciding to put it back.  I was mainly tempted just to have the Chewie, but I'm going to wait for those Hoth packs.  The line doesn't look too bad for building a "scene" type of thing, but I'm trying to trim the budget back this year the way it is and I don't know if I can take on any other lines.  When they start releasing OT-based packs, it might be a little more tempting.  I know I'll probably pick up that upcoming Hoth Han/Chewie/Tauntaun pack at least :).

Well, that new Hoth playset and snowspeeder for the line have me a LOT more interested in the line now. If they're going to be build vehicles into this, it's a whole different ballgame. I guess I'm in.

Lot of other folks to, by the looks of things.  They finally showed up around here at TRU and are selling really well.  I've seen them on trips to the US and they aren't as bad as I expected.  Frankly I think they'd have sold better if they hadn't tried to make the association with the Unleashed.  Launching it as an entirely new product just would have made more sense and had no associated backlash.
