I noticed that too.  They really seem to be showing the connection between the two trilogies with all the clone heads :).  It is pretty cool though.

Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about the clone heads either - but the removable helmet feature is kind of neat.

On the removable helmeted Snowtrooper and Stormtrooper, they could have had some kick-ass figs on their hands there...it even looks like they made a new crappy mold for the Snowtrooper...ridiculous!
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

From the prequels I only plan on getting:

1. Blue Clone Commander (Evo version) & Anakin (Evo version)
2. Anakin (Evo version) & AT-RT Driver (white and black re-decoed version)

I'm getting the Cantina Band, ESB, and ROTJ sets... the rest I'm currently on the fence about.

Now that i have seen the other pics, i will probably pick up the classic sets. I like them better than the prequel ones.

I hate it!

They make each tin with 3 crappy repacks, and then just ONE figure that I really want! >:( >:(

Darn you Hasbro.

ANH-For Vader (Sweet mix between ROTS' head & ROTJ's head),Leia & the Sandtrooper
ESB-For Chewie & the Snowtrooper
ROTJ-For Vader & the Scout

Kudos on the Sandie & Snowtrooper clone helmets!

2. Anakin (Evo version) & AT-RT Driver (white and black re-decoed version)
The tins are connected, if you get the ROTS Anakin/AT-RT Driver your going to get Mace & Yoda as well. Same for all of the other sets.

I don't think there's anything in the tins that are worth me picking up an opening set. The only figures  I'm slightly interested in are the army builders, but even then, I'm buying four figures just for one and I'm not sure they're worth it. The band set is a disappointment, the same POTF2 figs with cloth vests and repainted instruments. I don't think that's enough to justify a second set.

I would get them for the following reasons

TPM - for Darth Maul (evo), Red Astromech
AOTC - for Anakin (Evo), Blue Clone, Dooku (Evo)
ROTS - for Anakin (Evo), At-Rt Driver
ANH - for Vader, Leia
ESB - for Chewbacca
ROTJ - for Vader, Biker Scout

I getting the Band Member for sure.

At first I thought I'd buy these only to keep boxed, but man, I'm looking at $125 just because I like the packaging (the figures are nothing worth writing home about).

Maybe I'll wait...hell, I don't have room for 5 sets of this size anyway...
