There's definitely some nice looking figures in this set, but all I really need is the R5 unit for my Astromech collection.

Wow, Jediinsider's been getting a lot of images as of late!

This looks pretty good.  Not the most exciting set by any means, but I'll pick it up... though this isn't a "must have."

I can see why some might not be super psyched for this set, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.  It might be the fact of just seeing some more OT goodness with all this Clone Wars stuff going on right now, but I've never gotten a Probe Droid and was waiting for a "new" release - so this looks good to me.  Plus, its got a new astromech, and I like the face that we're starting to see more "definitive" figures of the main characters (Han and Chewie in this case) used in packs like this.

You're not kidding how well would this have sold with the "action feature" Hoth Han & Raging Chewie w/snow job  ;D

I'm really looking forward to this one. :)

The BP packaging seems to have changed this time around. Besides the obvious Legacy design it also seems deeper and neater rather than flat and tall with figures all over the place. It's kinda nice...

I'm looking forward to this. I want the variant hood up Han (the other coming in Wal*Mart Droid Factory 2-pack). As well, I think the R5 is spiffy! It goes well with K-3PO. I might even do a photonovel featuring those two. Kind of a counterpoint to R2/3PO.
The repainted Probe Droid looks decent even if it is the same mold.

Me too, and all they did was slap some new paint on it. :P

This will be the first battle pack I buy!  (Although I did get some of the Tantive loose ones in a trade).  R5-M2 is very recognizable to me unlike other paint schemes that I have to check to see where they're found.  I'm also glad to swap out the K-3PO in my dio with this better-articulated one.

So is that the brown-coated / hood-up version?  It doesn't look very brown in the pic, but the pic of Han in the WM Build-a-Droid set sure looks blue to me:

Based on this pic, I'm pretty sure that one has the brown coat.

I'm pretty sure the plan was to give us both between the two sets.

WOW, this set is a must have for me. (I already sold my old Probe Droid & K-3P0). I want to see more BP's like this. Keep them coming, the 3 droids alone make this set worthwhile.

Where is Jedi insider getting there info from?
