I saw one of these today. It is just a pointless choice when Mace and Kit Fisto are hanging above them on the pegs. I just couldn't justify $20 for a Palpatine I want.

Still it is a good value for parents.

 And I don't need the Mace since I'll get one in the Windu squadron BP.


No, the mace in the squadron BP has monkey arms and a constipated face. its the rots one. all the recent bp's suck :P

I bought one of these packs.  $4 for a ROTS figures aren't too bad when you are getting them for custom fodder.  Its a stretch to use Mace and Palpy but I'll figure something out.

So have you confirmed the office is all cardboard and there are no unusual pack-ins (chairs etc)?

if you REALLY want that Palpatine which I strongly recommend not wasting any money on  :P , just check other tru's. mine has 25 in the rots package on really cheap clearance in a different section of the store. if that fails check ebay.

It looks like the Mace from the Saga Jedi Council Cinema Scene to me... they just added the same ugly over-sized robe to him.

Yeah, and we get the same exact figure in the Mace Windu batallion pack. I can't wait for the SA version.

Actually, the Mace Windu in the MW Attack Battalion battle pack is the ROTS one again (you can tell by the elbow articulation and the action feature).

i have actually enjoyed my saga council scene mace windu over the years he has had to tide me over. i customized his ugly left hand by snapping off achk-med's left hand and gluing it on. it is a real beaut and, well, gosh darn it i LIKE him. he is, after all, the coolest jedi ever, right up there with even piell and kit fisto.

Bah!
I couldnt care less for Bps, they are oh so useless and they all suck!
Hasbro loves to half ass it and keeps the articulation at a minimum, the worst paintjobs, they are always sloppy and silly looking.

For those of us that are looking for these (Jedi vs. Sidious, Sith Lord Attack, and Sarlacc), has anyone else had a hard time coming across these?  The two Targets by me had one case each that they put out a month ago and have never gotten any more of these in stock.  The TRU and the WM's don't even have a spot on the shelves for these.  Is it too early for these to be coming out in mass quantities, or have I just missed them all completely?

you have a point. the only times i've ever seen these new bp's is from the neighborhood scalper. i certainly hope next year's tantive IV and illum bp's are released in better quantities.
