Found all 4 of the new sets at a TRU store today.  Price was $19.99.

Sweet. I got an excellent deal then. I ordered a case for $77 and am getting all four.

Good peek at the Rebel Pilots pack with Ten Nunb (incorrectly in white, again!) there too.

Sweet!
Nice find they look great. I cannot wait to see up close shots of the pilots. At least the "real" line is looking really good. I love Hasbro's reply to the animated look: "They are not cartoonish but have the CGI look" WTF??????
It's sucks so much tooling is now wasted on the CGI cartoon looking figures. :(

Outstanding Evolutions sets, as always. 

Is that Illum Padme there, or no?

The basic figure line could almost go away and as long as they still made Evolution sets I don't think I'd complain. These are fantastic looking figures from what I can tell. Count me in for at least one of each. Proabably more of that Rebel pilot set. :)

Geonosis Arena. The hood portion was from a deleted scene.

Ah, ok, thanks Jayson...  It seemed like her wrists had something on them poofy, but whatever.  I'm happy with the set even though I'm not a huge Padme fan in general.  Would prefer Rebel Troopers in a set, but hey, maybe next series!

Geonsis Arena

It is supposed to be Geonosis but that head wrapping accessory looks to me like the one she wore on Ilum in the CW, IIRC... I think the costume was almost identical otherwise. Perhaps this is something akin to the first Clone Trooper/Pilot set where the figure can be used as either the Geonosis or the Ilum figure?

The poofy things on the wrist are actually handcuffs. Kinky!

Can't wait for the Padme set. Looks like I'll finally get a Droid Factory Padme I don't hate.

That's a great Padme set!!  Though not the figures I initially wanted, I will take it...I might even buy one and not open it  ;).
