The new droids really will entice me on this one despite Padme's drawbacks.  I'd like to say I'll get two but with the Felucia pack out too I'm going to want to spend more on that one I think for army building purposes.  Still, I think 2 will be my goal on this pack...  If it's massively abundant I'll maybe wait for extras though.

If anyone just wants Padme...  I'll gladly buy your Chameleon droids. :)

I picked up a couple of these today...
Had to buy a second because my daughter had to have the Padme.
So, I bought it and said 'We'll see what your report card looks like..until then, it's on hold."

I have to admit I like Padme's cloak.

I agree.  I was pretty disappointed with her preposed stance, but the soft goods cloak looks really good.  :)

Be honest, did you try it on and run around the house when the kids weren't home?

Purchased one of these this evening since they were on the shelf. Haven't opened it yet.
I remember my dream now.

I love this set.  Have two so far, and plan on getting at least two more.  I love the Chameleon Droids.  The "solid" ones I am going to use for dioramas, and the "clear" ones, I am going to attempt to customize into some sort of other fan fiction Separatist Droids.  Padme's articulation is really just a problem with the legs I think, and I think it's possible to tweak it some to give her some more articulation, or at least a more neutral pose.

Well worth $20.00 to me.

Just picked mine up while at lunch.  Fantastic!  Love the chameleon droids and I'll get over Padme's articulation.  My son and I were watching CW Vol. 1 this past weekend and he's going to love this set.

Picked this up today.  I think it's a decent value for the 3 figures and 2 chameleon droids which look sizable all for $19.99.

The Padme turned out better than I thought. Sure, she's not very posable, but I can forgive that in EU characters and the face doesn't look nearly as bad as some of the photos lead me to believe.

Our local Target had this and the Felucia battle packs out on an endcap this weekend, so I was able to pick one up.  Aside from the shortcomings on the Padme figures (specifically articulation-wise), I'm pretty happy to get this set.  I hope the rumors are true and we see a few more "movie-like" sculpts from the Clone Wars series in the line.  The camo droids are larger than I thought they would be for a BP, and it isn't too bad of a set overall.

Found an endcap of these, passed on it because I do not ever need another 3P0 or R2, didn't like the Padme, and thought the Chameleon droids just looked kinda, for lack of a better term, "cheap."

Betrayal on Felucia seems to be radically outselling Ilum, and I took the liberty of loading up on the 327th Star Corps as well.
