Dressel will buy the Tantive BP for the stormies, so Hasbro still wins.   :-*

It's slick marketing, that's all - rehash something just enough to make it better than the previous incarnation. 

It worked for the tin and vehicle rehashes last year - it will work with the BP's.

As long as the Stormtroopers show up clean as promised by Hasbro, I'll still buy one.    :-\

I'm totally a sucker for "new" things like the repaint Stormies and new head RFTs.  BaaAaaa.    :-[

Sucker or suffering from OCD?  Opening 98% of my stuff resolves many of the questions like this.  I do think they do a darn nifty job of packaging figures but I manged to break myself of collecting window boxes (mostly) so my decision on these is whether the figures are worth it or not.  Marketing indeed and at least there's something new in it, plus some army builders.  As opposed to some hideous POTF2 rehashed figures. :-X

I'm probably going to be a sucker for this set... I just can't help it.  The Stormtroopers look fantastic I think.  If they have good paint jobs, I'll probably buy 4-5 of this set, or even more.  If it came with all Stormtroopers, I'd probably buy at least 10 of them though.

I hope it comes with the blue saber, that would make it a unique collectible

I picked this up last night at WM in Norcal

between 2 WM's I saw 6 cases in all(there was several Tantative IV sets)

--At least it looks good displayed in the box
--nice for Hasbro to pack-in the interro droid too.
