Considering that I'm still looking for clones from the first set I doubt I'm gonna let any of these pass me by. Well the ones I want anyway.  :)

The Palpatine and Choi sets do look pretty damn good.  Count me in for two of each set.

But I thought you were passing on these?  ???

That was before I saw images... most others, yeah I'll pass on.  But since Choi is new, and I like the Palpatine with the gray skin, I'll get it.

In stores April 15th.  But to pick Tax day as a street date?  Strange.

I have been checking the DCPI number for these sets the last 2 weeks. As of today they are still not in the stockroom (As well as the Rancor). I would think within the next 2 weeks they should be at the stores so stock jockeys can pull them for us early.......

Actually, that's a good time to pick, since a lot of people will know the amount of their tax return by that date.  A lot of industries see a spike in sales around this time, so makes sense to advertise/release your new prods in conjunction with tax returns.  ;)

Since Targets have started resetting with their exclusives on an end cap, I would hazard a guess that as product sells that they can't replace (GH sets, TFU BP, AS JSF) they will start filling the empty space on the end cap with these. You know they don't like empty shelf space, and I think the endcap is designated toys at least, if not star wars specifically.

Not likely.  We're still about 3 weeks away from the scheduled on-shelf date.  I would expect stores to get the new Order 66 sets in about 2 weeks or so.

Is everyone agreed that the Camo-At-Rt driver is going to be the shelf warmer this time around?

That's what I'm guessing. I know I'll get one though. I'm not at all excited for the 3 ARC troopers, but again will get one of each. It's those yellow Neyo troopers I'm looking forward to. I'll get a squad of 5 or those guys. I forget who the sixth one is though.

I think this time around, here's what my break-down will be:

3x Obi-Wan & ARC Trooper Commander
3x Anakin & ARC Trooper
5x Master Tsui Choi & Barc Trooper
3x Palpatine & Commander Vill
3x Luminara Unduli & AT-RT Driver
3x Master Sev & Yellow ARC Trooper

With one of each set being set aside to keep MIB. So it's going to cost me roughly $200 to get everything I need for this round of Order 66.

For the 2007 sets, here was my break-down:

3x Emperor and Commander Thire
5x Mace Windu and Galactic Marine
3x Darth Vader and Commander Bow
5x Anakin Skywalker and Airborne Trooper
5x Obi-Wan Kenobi and Utapau AT-RT Driver
7x Yoda and Kashyyyk Trooper

Which was 28 sets in total. So while I do like the sets this year much better than I did in 2007, I'm actually going to be purchasing LESS this year.
