I'm looking forward to these, I'm hoping that I'll be easily able to score 3 of each so I can end up with two of the C-3PX build-a-droids.

I'm still fairly excited to pick up these sets. The $10 pricepoint is going to hurt a little because all I really want from the sets is the astromechs. I have to admit that the updated paint job on Watto looks pretty good still. It looks like Hasbro went through at least a little effort to make the non-droid figures somewhat interesting. I think I'll still end up trying to get rid of most of them though, especially the ROTS Vader. I've gotta say, what is up with Luke's new **** eating grin? :-X

It was a lame reference to a movie...  It didn't work.  :-\

End of Platoon the one dude who survives from Charlie Sheen's Platoon sees him getting ready to be med-evac'd from the battle and says, "we gonna get high, high!", cause their squad in the platoon that sided with Sgt. Elias (Willam Defoe) were into weed whereas the other group that sided with Sgt. Barnes (Tom Berenger) were pricks, cowards, and war criminals for the most part.

Typing **** online never translates intent.

That maybe the WORST Luke head EVER. Plus it looks like we're treated to the wrong lightsabers for him again.  ::)

R2 is cool though, I've wanted that version for a long time... a long time.

If these hit the same time as that Falcon, and near the explosion of product for the movie, they are going to be a tougher sell. Right now would be a good window to try to sell everyone what is essentially a $60 battle pack with 13 figures.

Seriously...is the person responsible for Luke head sculpting on crack?  What the hell?  To me, he'll make a perfect Holiday Special Luke

I am truly stunned, that Luke head sculpt is awful. You're only half right Jayson, not just the worst Luke head sculpt ever, it might be the worst head sculpt ever.

Luke is HORRIBLE. Good thing R2 is so great. Looks like I'm only going to pick up Han/R-3PO and Luke/R2, simply for the R2.

For some reason, that phrase always makes me laugh outloud.  Yeah, the headsculpt on that Luke really is a bit strange - they really have a tough time with Mark Hamill over at Hasbro it seems.  That said, I'm just happy we're getting that damaged R2 - and it looks pretty spiffy.  Personally, I'm really looking forward to these sets, and I hope they aren't too tough to get a hold of.  Our Wal-mart is pretty hit and miss with past SW exclusives, so we'll see.  Also, I hope they hit that 7/1 date shown on the presentation slide - or even sooner - because I don't want to be running around trying to find these during the 7/26 spending madness.  Heck, Hasbro's text says "go get your packs now", so I'm hoping maybe they'll be out in the next month or so.  They don't exactly have the white/blue Legacy packaging, so I guess its possible they'll be out sooner.
