Sev looks much better with the soft goods.

That Anakin looks GREAT!

What a great re-use of the Nelvaan Tattoo Anakin figure!

All three of those sets look great.

While I don't think I'll be going as overboard as I did the last time, I definitely want at least three of each these.

These look fantastic all the way around.  Amazing take on Anakin.  I think I'm buying them all, except for Luminara and Palpy.

Brent, I'm REALLY hoping you're wrong. ;)  That thought crossed my mind, but the hands are clearly different...  The height matches though, but it also matches McQuarrie Yoda, who features a similar build and Jedi robe-ish sculpting.  I'd be ok with that, or an all-new sculpt, I'm just hoping for the best at this point though.  It's a cool looking little dude.

Agreed. That Anakin has potential as well.

For $10 a pack I am very happy with these. If you consider that an average basic figures runs $7.00 this is great for the money. I respect your dislike for these but I think overall these beat the average collectors expectations when compared to the last ones.

Are they still $10 a pack?  Just asking.

I like them all and curse this frigid country for not having Target stores.  I'll get them though.  Least keen on Sev and Luminara though. 

Brent, I'm REALLY hoping you're wrong. ;)  That thought crossed my mind, but the hands are clearly different... 

And I was just running with the smart ass angle anyway, I didn't even really consider it as a possibility though.  My mind just ran through short figures that Hasbro has not made a significant return on the mold of the figure and Watto came to mind as a figure that hasn't had much of a use pattern, so they might try and find a use for it.

I am sure we can get your back on these if you need help. When they hit just ask. As far as the DCPI numbers show thus far they are $10. Subject to possible change.......

Did I miss something? Have the DCPI numbers been posted somewhere? I don't remember seeing them in this thread. Thanks

I had to resort to ebay last year to get the first wave. My target either never got them or sold out right away.

Thanks but I should be fine.  My MN friends are always most helpful.  Plus with Hasbro stuff I tend to have a lot more patience.  I managed to get a set of six off ebay for $30 last go round.  Not quite $2.50 clearance price but still below regular retail by a fair bit. 

My whole Hasbro interest is dwindling period.  I'm trying to keep the interest up and keep up with everything going on, but combine the glut of product, a lack of it in Canada and the accompanying frustration and it wanes.  That works for the best because ultimately modern stuff in a loose collection is next to worthless.  I just have to wait for it to reach that point.  ;)

I'll take your BARC trooper in trade or buy it from you. Let me know.

These are so awesome this year, in a different league from the crap we got last time around. I will be getting all of these except for Luminara. The Tsui set is definitely the most exciting. I can't wait!
