They really should have included the ice base that this Luke originally came with an the base and post that the Wampa originally came with. What could the cost of those pieces have been? $1? $2?
I know TRU will charge their regular $24.99 for this Battlepack, so it's completely inexcuseable that the base pieces aren't included.
To me a "Hoth Patrol" Battle pack is two Tauntauns and Hoth Han and Hoth Luke that can both SIT on the Tauntauns. Han's should have a split belly to recreate the rescue scene.
Then a second Battle Pack could be the "Wampa's Cave" - but the problem there, is that it would be nothing more than the Wampa and Luke from the Saga line in one box. Maybe include a ghost Obi-Wan Kenobi with it? But it's still pretty weak.
So it's obvious that they wanted a vehicle they could use to get the Wampa back out into circulation since the last time it was around was 2002/2003.
I already stopped with all of the packaging variants myself - for TAC, I refused to drop $80 just to get the TAC versions of Darth Vader's TIE, Anakin's ROTS Jedi Starfighter, Obi-Wan's ROTS Jedi Starfighter and Mace Windu's ROTS Jedi Starfighter.
I'm currently fighting the urge to pick up the three repackaged Evolutions sets.
I did purchase all of the TAC Battlepacks so far. It definitely is getting harder and harder to justify grabbing a second (or in some cases possibly a third) versions of the exact same item w/no paint op variations just to have a "complete" packaging collection.
