With all the negative reaction, I wonder how well these are going to sell?

Consideing my local K-Mart still has an ample supply of the last batch of tins, I'm going to guess these will still be hanging around next Fall.   ;)

My local K-Mart has an extensive supply of ROTS Figures still.

Yeah, my TRU still has a number of the tins.  Not a shock considering they're priced at $40.  ::)

Well, how many collectors shop at Kmart regularly anyway? :)  These will probably do just fine with their regular customers... the ROTS Vader case w/ Vader and Obi-Wan seemed to do just fine without our caring about it, as did the Unleashed Bumblebee with bonus comic.  And both were about as exciting as the tins.

I liked the first offerings in the 30AC Collector Tin line, but these?  They're weak.  The original tins had something going for them because of the combination of new and/or premium figures that were in that lineup.  But these are all just straight reissues which makes them far less attractive.  PASS.

How much will they go for? Also, has anyone ever notice price discrepancies at Kmart? I go to 2 different K marts, and one has the Concept Chewie for $8.49 and the other for $6.99. Any ideas?

Spot on. You know, these were European exclusives. I wonder if they didn't perform well which is why K-Mart eventually got them.

I think the reason they chose to release some of these sets in the USA is so that they didn't have to listen to the uber-completists bitch about having to go to ebay to track down an EU exclusive...  :P

I suckered myself into picking these up today.

It was really a no-brainer actually, the store I checked had priced them out at $23 each instead of $35 each.

They rang up the correct price at the register, but the gal made the price correction for me because of the price sticker.

So I got all three for $70 - still a rip off of course.

I guess I sorta fall into the evil "uber-completist" category - I really didn't care about them when they were European exclusives, but since they were released here, I felt compelled to pick up at least one set to keep MIB. If Hasbro had never released them here in the US, I would have never even cared about them. (so I hope that means I'm not all that bad)  ;D

I have to admit, the ROTJ set looks like a decent set, price not withstanding. I would bet that this will be the first one to go.
