I'm going to make a prediction in hopes that it comes true.
- "Surprise" Thanksgiving Exclusive for 2007, ala the Shuttle
- $59.99 price tag
Looking at what you get...
8x Action Figures
1x Turret (plus cardboard or plastic base?)
The figure values each are anywhere from $4-$7 (given recent multi-pack prices), the AT-ST is a good $20, and the Turret... let's say $10. So $50-$60 probably isn't remotely unreasonable if the item is in fact a "Black Friday" (or thereabouts) exclusive this year.
The REAL question is the Endor set... should we expect a larger accessory like the Bunker or the Ewok Glider in there too? Hmm hmmm hmmm....
Anyway, I feel obligated to say if it's $50 or less, I'm buying two. $60 or more, it'll depend on how good and sturdy the AT-ST legs are. Very nice though.
100% agreed with you Adam!
What a surprise to see all this packed in here! I'm thinking $50-$60 sounds about right, anything over $60 might actually be a ripoff... the real treat would be to find one of these on clearance later.
Anyways, count me in for at least one set. Maybe two if I can stomach the midget Rebel. Probably two sets though, provided these go for the $40 - $60 range.
I'll go ahead and speculate that in the Endor set, we are now going to be getting possibly another AT-ST, along with the Bunker... and more than one Stormie/Scout Trooper. Damn you Hasbro, for seeming to finally work out a better way to bring out these larger Battle Packs (the Arena one still sucks though because of the absolute TERRIBLE versions of Anakin, Obi Wan and Padme that are included.
Back to the Hoth set, the way the turret and the AT-ST are painted is the biggest selling point for me, and that it includes vintage style Snowtroopers (bah on the other one).
Also, I tried to clean the image some.
