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.
