More than $60.

Big pass for me, thankfully nothing new in there.

The Acklay is something I never did see during the AOTC run, but now I don't know how badly I want it.  Certainly not badly enough to pick up this entire set.  Nice for those who missed all the beasties though, or maybe for kiddos who really like AOTC.

Well, its good to see the beasts re-released, but I have them all, so I definitely wont be buying this set. The Padme and Anakin repacks are just sad. I missed that Obi sculpt the first time around but it doesnt look like its worth over sixty dollars.

The packaging looks nice, though, at least it'll look good warming the TRU shelves alongside the bantha.  :-\

Big pass! Even the repacked figures blow! They picked the worst figures in Hasbro's run to include here! I was hoping for the Lizard thing with Geonosian Warrior cart and some cool repaints. I will not be within 10ft of this one. I am not sure if this one will have legs. The Bantha did OK but did not fly off the shelves like the Gunship, AT-AT and X-wing. this one may be a loser. I cannot see that many moms dropping $60 for this set. The majority of collectors will most likely pass since there are no new offerings. this would have been perfect for kit-bashed Jedi and RED Battle droid army building.

the Ball has been officially dropped!

I might pick it up, only for the beasts. The figures suck, they atleast could of re-packed the Evolutions Anakin.

I really want the three beasts in this set, but the price is not the nicest for the three beasts and three partial repacks. Had the Geonosian and columns from the original Anakin, Padme, and Obi Wan been included in this set, I would've happily paid the $60. Now, I'll wait until I see the set in person and then make my decision.

A definite pass for me, thought it is great for those that never got the beasts the first time around I guess.  Is that another repack of the Clone Wars Obi-Wan and "slice and dice" Anakin?  Hard to see in that pic.  Wouldn't the Obi-Wan with spear have made more sense?  Not that it was a great figure but at least it is scene specific.

Billy Ray;

The Obi-Wan in question appears to be the April 23rd basic release from the 2002 line (the one with the Assassin Droid and the metal hand), to me at least.

To the Floor;

I find myself suprisingly fond of this set, as it is really something which should have long ago been released. I sincerely doubt that I'll pick it up, but the concept is sound. Too bad the figures are so terrible.

Look closer... it's the Acklay Battle version

All I see is crap.  I would have been all over this set back in 02.  Hasbro is really going out of their way to nix me from my OCD.
