After seeing more pics of the turret at RS, I am really stoked about this set.  Might get two now.  That turret is awesome.

I only want the Luke, Han (although the coat is way too purple) and the AT-ST Driver.

I plan on buying this set but only want the figures. If i decide to get rid of the AT-ST and Turret is anyone interested?

If ANYONE doesn't want their tower, contact me...  The figures aren't necessarilly something I want at this point,b ut I would like getting my mits on a few of the tower actually.  By all means drop me a line on it if you want. :)

I think it's great that the VTSC Snowtrooper repaints have the light tan/bone white color on their body gloves vs the baby blue from the carded release.  The spurts of rust don't make sense, but should be easily removable with goof off or something.  I have to admit, that tower is impressive too.

I'm interested in the Vintage Snowtroopers and the At-St Driver of a second set if anyone wants to look into splitting one.

Might take you up on that if I can find some on clearance.  Not worth it for the $50 right now though.   :-\

Just in case there is anyone out there STILL not thinking that the tower is new... check out www.galactichunter.com

What a nice surprise this really is.  I didn't think it would be THAT much bigger than the old one.  I did pick this up last night by the way, and it's even better in person.  Finally Hasbro adds some punch for the Rebels on Hoth.

Wow, I'm surprised Hasbro would sculpt a completely new turret just for this BP. Hopefully they'll release it by itself later. Might be a good time to create a new DS gun station too...

I definitely think the turret would sell on it's own (maybe with one figure). I'd rather buy a few of those then have to buy this whole Ultra pack just for it and the blue coat Han.

Right, but that's the idea.  Several people will want a couple of Turrets, so they'll shell out $50 per set to get them.  Hasbro's probably more interested in making money themselves than getting you smaller packs of items to save you money.  ;)

I actually found someone to split a set with. I'm getting all the figures, he's keeping the Tower and the At-St.

I'm keeping the At-St driver and the vintage snowtroopers, everybody else is fair game for trade if you don't want the At-St driver from either of the packs.  ;)

This thing took 10 minutes to get out of the box, but it was worth it. I love the new turret and the deco on the at-st, but I posted the figures in the classifieds.

The logs weren't enough to get me to bite on Endor, if they had made a plastic tree with an ewok hutt in it, they probably would have had me. Especially if it had 1/2 a bridge, and then you could get 2 and join them.

Yeah, the logs are really, really lame in my opinion.  After seeing this in person, I just couldn't get the Endor set.  I doubt I would even drop $20.00 to get it.  Almost everything in it other than the silly logs is a rehash of some sort that I've seen on clearance...

Now, if they had included some sort of tree rather than the logs, I'd have probably of caved in.  Somethign around the size of this Schleich tree would have been great, as one thing we are really lacking is enviroment pieces for dioramas:



Edit - Scheich also makes a lot of other trees for those interested.  They're not cheap, but cool as hell - I've shopped a few times for Shleich stuff at this site.
