Whoops, I missed Scott's post down here on this one...

These sound real promising.  It makes me wonder though, I thought we already got a Vader astromech, so I'm a snivvit disappointed at his listing.  Plo Koon's a good choice, and I hope it's his ROTS figure we get as it's pretty top notch itself.  Add in a nice droid repaint and that's cool...

If there's an Obi-Wan, that's just nuts.  They already did his astro's and figure, so I'd rather they go with either EU Jedi or Sae Sae Tinn and crew...

Maybe the Vader one is actually an R4-G9 mold R2-D2.

Since he used R2 in his fighter that he went to Mustafar in.

This sounds cool. Hopefully they'll have these on the Walmart web site.
I remember my dream now.

Cool sets but talk about Han Hoth overload 2 years in a row. how about a good Han Bespin?  We get the Blue hooded one here and the brown one in the battle pack. How many Han Hoth does one need, the worst part is not of them can sit on a Taun -Taun........

Well I can't really complain.  I want that hood up version.  I wonder if they will do a blue/brown coat version (you knew it would be asked sooner or later)?  These could be fun to collect.

The paint on Plo Koon looks a little weird, but it's probably just a prototype. I don't need either of these sets, although I do like the red protocol droid (R-3PO?). I'll be getting my hood-up Han Solo in the battle pack that's coming out.

Hell yeah, I'm liking these. I want that C-3PX dude.  :)

Hasbro's really going nuts with the BAF concept.

Sorry for confusing Scotty earlier...

What I was trying to tell him is that these are the Wal-Mart equilvent of the Order 66 packs.  Exclusive, 2 figures, collector packaging, etc.  Basicaly Wal-Mart saw reaction to the Order 66 sets and wanted something, this is what they got.

Line-up for the Wal-Mart sets =

Vader and K-3PX (black C-3PX essentially)
Plo Koon and R4-F5
X-Wing Luke and Battle Damaged R2 (easily the best one)
Kit Fisto and R4-H5
Watto and R2-T0
Hoth Han (Hood-Up) and new R-3P0

Like others have said, buy all 6 sets and you get the parts for C-3PX hunter protocol droid...

Is Watto new?

All of the sets sounds awesome and i love that we are getting C-3PX. Great set of exclusives. Sucks that they are walmart exclusives but they sound very cool.
