Are these considered  "Expanded Universe 2 packs"?  They have pegs at my Target for those and I didn't know if these were where they were suppossed to go.  $9.99 was the price.

I'd say that's a fair description.  It seems that all of the 2-packs announced (or rumoured) so far are EU characters.

Yes, the "EU 2-pk, $9.99" pegs are indeed for the Comic 2-Packs.  My local Target wis filled to the brim with them today after doing a toy aisle re-set.  ;)

Excellent, now I know which empty space to watch at the local bullseye.

Hmm... I'm thrilled to hear that we're finally getting Bultar Swan. She's been at the top of my list for a while now. I'm concerned that it will be in her comic armor, though, since these are 'Comic 2pks.' I would definately prefer her AotC outfit.

I went to target yesterday and the comic pegs were filled with the Darth Vader rebel trooper set, there wasn't even room for any of the other packs :-\

Although I haven't seen these at TRU, they have come and gone at both Target and Wal-Mart.  I'm surprised that they sold out so quickly, but it might have just been on case worth at this point.  It will be interesting to see how these do overall.  If they would have had these Marvel packs with "normal" coloring (and maybe subbing in a VOTC/EB Chewie, VOTC Stormie, and different Vader in their respective packs), I think they would be better accepted overall.

Well, I've succumb to collecting these - the future looks too bright not to have a complete set.  And when you consider the price ($10 for two figures and a comic) in the current environment of $7 figures, they're pretty good deals.

I suppose when the 'really cool' sets containing newly tooled figures hit, Hasbro will jack up the price.

On a sidenote, I've yet to find the Han set...clearly this is the one everyone wants - for obvious reasons.

I hope your wrong about that price jack..that would be a real believable ****** thing for Hasbro/retailers to do.

The Tarkin set seems to be a bit more popular in my neck of the woods.
