But, that's it for this year right?  We've seen everything haven't we?

So far, we've seen 15 sets in the line:

 1- Vader/RFT
 2- Han/Chewie
 3- Tarkin/Stormtrooper
 4- Luke/R2
 5- Quinlon/Villie
 6- Obi-Wan/ARC
 7- Mara/Luke
 8- Leia/Vader
 9- DarkWoman/Hett
10- Anakin/Droid
11- Hobbie/Fel
12- Swan/Arana
13- Obi-Wan/Bail (Wal-Mart)
14- Droid/Fett (Wal-Mart)
15- Keller/Marine (Wal-Mart)

During the C-IV Panel, Hasbro said there would be 18 sets this year so there are 3 that have yet to be shown.

According to the R2-Dtoys listings that popped back in February, the remaining three are rumored to be:

16- Stormtrooper Disguise Mouse & Able
17- Lieutenant Jundlund & Lieutenant Shan
18- Republic Commando & Super Battle Droid

I have no idea if those last three will pan out or if they were just rumors, but I'd imagine that we will know more at SDCC. ;)

Jeff,

You forgot to mention the Kir Kanos/Carnor Jax #1 set. When Hasbro first announced that there were would be 15 comic packs for the 30AC line, this set I believe was included. It also sounded like Hasbro was indicating at C4 that the set would be re-released this year. Even if you count the re-release as one set, that just leaves us two unknown sets to go for this year. Hopefully it's for more Rogue Squadron or Zahn Trilogy based comics, those really need to be fleshed out more than clone/droid repaint #314159

Personally I'll be skipping all the WM exclusive sets, but I think it's cool for Hasbro to rerelease the Bail/Obi twin sets, this time with a comic, for the people who missed out on them originally.

I don't, those sets sucked the first time, and they'll suck again.  If Hasbro is going to overload on comic packs, they need to be new and exciting characters, not repaints and repacks.

To illustrate:

Crap:



A-Okay:

I kind of agree with Rob...  Not that I ever begrudge people getting something they felt was hard to find mind you.  I can dig that totally, but I have a fear of packs like the Twins one really being the stinker of a wave and sorta f'n up the Comic Pack Mojo they have going on now...  I dunno, maybe I'm worrying too much, I just hate to see it goofed up by something like that. 

Personally the Twins sets were fairly easy to find for me...  They were one of those weird times that Pittsburgh got something in abundance that other areas didn't.  So, for me at least, they're not a welcome sight in the comics lines...  Plus, as figures, they eat it hard since you're paying for figures you have to get "accessories".  :(

But anyway, yeah I dunno...  I think I'd rather have seen the "twins" as accessories released with a Beru and Owen figure maybe rather than this...  The Comic slot could've been filled by virtually any more desireable repaint (Clone Commando type deal again, or whatever).

18 sets, wow. Looking over the list, beyond wave two, I'm only interested in the Hobbie/Baron pack and the Luke/Mara one. Everything else might be a pass.

Ok, shoot me, but I liked the concept... for the Old 70's/80's comics... Not too into the modern ones. Though I will shoot for the Luke/Mara... Not sure about the rest.

Rob and JJ, I am actually glad theyre rereleasing this in one $10 pack!!! I never got these before. That being said, that one pack will be a bitch to find for that very reason.

I actually like the fact that Hasbro is re-doing Seperation of the Twins with softgoods for both Bail and Obi-Wan.  The plastic looks silly and totally hinders the poseability of two very good figures.

Add in the fact that they're helping out the collectors that got the shaft on these the first time around, and it seems like Hasbro is trying to make good.  Too bad they went back to WalMart again though.  That part of it seems like a cruel joke.

Anyone know if the Kir Kanos/Carnor Jax CP will be a retail wide-release, or an exclusive?

All signs point to them remaining an exclusive. Those signs being that they're not on the up coming releases list (other than still being available at EE.)
