Too expensive.  It will be a repack Hoth R2 instead.  :P

The Rebel Fleet Troopers aren't dressed warm enough to handle the cold up here.  :P

damn why didnt i think of that. it all makes sense now. ;)

Well the cold causes shrinkage...just ask the Saga Hoth Soldier...



Oh God I temporarily forgot what a complete disaster this figure is.  The Hoth Rebel Soldier is one of the biggest disappointments to date, in terms of characters who Hasbro has tried to get right multiple times and failed miserably.

Just curious, how tough have the Tantive BPs been to find in your areas?  I personally haven't seen any yet, and I'd like to pick one up, but the Battle Packs in general have been pretty scarce around here.  There are some older (Jedi vs. Palpy) sets at Target (as well as the exc. Ilum one), but aside from seeing a couple Dagobah sets over the past couple months, I don't think I've seen any for awhile.  Neither TRU or Wal-Mart in our area has a single one.

None of the basic BP have been shelf warning at all which is the part I find interesting. Even after the few times I've seen the Tantive IV pack, the other two were gone within a few days.

I don't think anyone has found them outside of Wal-Mart stores.  All of the Targets near me are out of stock on all but their exclusive BP's.

I found two at Target yesterday.  One in the main aisle and one on the endcap with the other exclusive BP's.

Are there any other Battle Pack's on the horizon that we know about - save for the Bantha and the Arena set??

Ahhhhhh - the one day I decide not to hit Target.  Which Target did you find them at?  Let the hunt begin!

The only other one I know of that was 'confirmed' was the Treachery on Saleucami WM Exclusive and the rumored Jundland Wastes Encounter one.  Can we consider the TRU Exclusive Rancor one a rumored BP at this point?

I found all but two of mine at Target. In fact, I picked up 4 today between two Targets. I'm happy to say that I'm up to my limit of 8 packs for 16 of these Stormtroopers which I'm using as sergeants.

I've seen one, bought it for my gf's kid, haven't seen another for myself to just get the heads for casting and the Stormies for the army (love those 2).

Bummer, but things are dry around Pitt right now in general.

I found 2 of these at Target on Tuesday. The temptation was strong but spending $20 for 2 Stormtroopers was a little much for my wallet at the moment. Unless someone I know needs the Rebel Troops, i'm not bothering...
