This is an interesting development.  Hasbro continues to show attention to the Cantina, so I guess we can't complain.  Repacks for most of you probably, but I don't have any of those Cantina aliens yet, so I hope to be able to find them/pick them up.  Don't really care about the Aurra Sing, but new astromechs are always welcome.  Hopefully they won't be "blink and miss them" like the Seperation of the Twins sets.  Also, I know we've always had exclusives in this line, but doesn't it seem like more than ever now (in the past year plus at least)?

Ooh, sorry, not that, I meant Nabrun/Kabe. 

I'll have to get the astromech.

Pictures from various sites show that these are repaints and not repacks.  Since I don't have many, I'll line up and get them

****. I need all of those, at least the Cantina aliens. And the Astromech. No interest in Sing though.

 :-\

And a store exclusive wave? Hella lame.

Aurra Sing and Mace's R2 don't really interest me.

I already blew $13 on Kit'Kat, not to mention I risked my life trotting through the K-Mart I bought it from. **** Hasbro.

I've been wanting Muftak and Kabe for years - I should have known that Hasbro would repack them with other figures, instead of each other. Major bummer there.

So the one "Plus" is a bittersweet one. Typical Hasbro.

I dunno, this is an interesting way to get some more Cantina figures and EU figures out there at little cost. The repaints on Kabe, Labria, and Nebrun are impressive, if I didn't already own these figures I'd be picking them up. And yay, Kitik is getting released by itself, finally I can get this figure without having to pickup that crappy KMart exclusive.

It's weird, sometimes when Hasbro does repaints/rehashes it's execution is good - such as this case. Then there's other times like the Camo BD's where they **** things up royally. It's like a whole Cybil thing going on over there....

Great.....Walmart's here in MN pretty much suck ass when it comes to exclusives so this will be a great task to find especially since they're from the tail end of the line.   ::)  Thanks alot Hasbro, I had a hard enough time with the Twins.

Well in all, I like Wal-mart exclusives better than K-mart and Target exclusives. I find that they are easier to find and if I want more than one I can normally find them. K-mart is a dead zone and I have never found anything in one of their stores. At Target, I'm luck to find one if even that of their exclusives.
