Yeah Hasbro must be tired of seeing that Palpatine in it's warehouse. I can not see any other reason why they would put that thing back in the stores other than to get it out of their sight. That is a sad, sad, sad repack.
Anyway, everything else is okay. I don't love the Gunner as much as everyone else but it's definately a pick up for me. I am actually a tad bit disappointed with how Jerjerrod looks. It's fine and all but I don't know about that face? Oh well. Chirpa is pretty cool looking. He was actually my favorite ewok figure back in the day. They made a nice version of him there. C-3PO is one I'll have to leg if he has bendeable knees.
Here's hoping that they have come up with an SA Luke Endor sometime in the future.
