Crap, I was hoping the RC pack would be a wallet-friendly Target BP. Looks like it'll be a $40 EE pack. Marvel Comic Packs sound sweet, I'll defintly pick up the Tarkin/Stormtrooper pack. Hope they aren't too pricey.

It's cool that they're painting up the rest, but it's not cool that I'm going to have two Scorches...

Then go buy it, it's already for sale.  You can even get a deal here with some extra stuff ;)

This set is perfect! Hasbro hit the nail on the head with this. Clone Troopers and bugs for them to shoot all in one set. I definately hope to purchase this item, but I hope EE/SWS/HTS don't charge $50+ for this.

Notice that they spelled "Commandos" as "Commandoes" and also "2007 Sneak Peek" as "2007 Sneak Peak".

It's a sad state of affairs when you have a glaringly obvious typo for the world to see...

Aw, now, spelling doesn't really matter much?  After all, who really cares? ;)

I can't believe they are up for order already. I ordered mine. Any other sets up for pre-order?

That's infuriating, I paid about $40.00 shipped JUST for the Super exclusive Lucas set and now I can get that plus 7 figures for about 10 bucks more?

I'm getting tired of Hasbro yanking us around with the exclusives and the non predictable availability and the re-releases.

Which sucks, because when new figures come out I love it, but I don't like it when this kind of stuff happens.

I'm starting to seriously contemplate scalling back my collecting, a lot.

Yup, and I wouldn't blame you a bit.  I'm already thinking that way between that stunt, the temporary reduction that most people probably didn't get a refund on or even know about and then the comic con stunt today [/fanboy rant]. 

I love the 3.75" stuff, it's still the core of my collection but it's to the point where with crap like this happening I'm happier to send my money to Gentle Giant, Sideshow, Medicom and the like.  I've had a hard time for the past several weeks even looking into the new 2007 forum here at JD simply because it looks like they (Hasbro) are just trying to glut the market as fast as they can before the memory of the movies is replaced by something else.  Not an unreasonable approach I suppose, but frustrating ultimately. 

As I posted in the 2006 Lucas family thread I get the formerly $35 (plus shipping) set for $15 now.  I can throw Zett away since I already have him from the basic line and still only pay a hair over $5 for each of the other Lucas clan.  Perfectly reasonable to me, but they sure burned a lot of folks on that.

Rob, I think they just couldn't sell all of the Lucas sets they wanted to.  I, for one, just didn't have any interest, partially because I already had Jett.
