I'll pass on the Lando one. Only thing I like about the Anakin/Dooku one is the cape on Dooku. But I'll pass on it.
I will get a few of the Clone/Wookiee set. I'll use the redecoed Barc as Lieutenants for Gree's 41st Legion.

Those are hilarious! I will probably only want the Wookiee for the Kashyyyk diorama I'm working on.

Those wookies were kind of cool for the ROTS release.  But nowadays they look a bit...well not bad...but they seem outdated to me.  Maybe it's the articulation?  Yeah, I am passing on those comic sets.

Yeah, I didn't think these comic packs were too impressive either.  I'm likely passing on all three as well, although the Lando one might tempt me if I see it in stores.  There's more than enough other stuff to pick up this year, so that makes it easier to pass on these.

Lando does have that Matador swashbuckling vibe going on with the red cape.....he may be worth picking up after all.

I will get the Wookie just to have more in the army but I really will pass on the other 2. Wal-Mart exclusives disappear so quick and you usually do not get a second stab at them in store but I have no doubt I do not want them.

The Droid Factory series is going to be a bitch to track down......

Well, for me if it wasn't for Walmart.com, I wouldn't have been able to score all of the first wave of WM exclusive comic 2packs. I'm not going to do site-to-store with them again 'cause they put a big sticker on the back of them, so if I have to for both this wave of Comic 2-packs and the Droid Factory sets, I'll order them online and have them shipped directly to my house.

However, something tells me that with all of these exclusives that WM is getting, Hasbro has convinced them to set up a pretty big Clone Wars section this summer. I'm sure the theatrical release of the cartoon really helped with things in that regard.

I absolutely adore the Marvel Comic-colored toys in both the Star Wars and GI Joe lines, so Marvel #44 is a must-buy. I can do without the other two.

WOW! I never expected to see so much love for Matador Lando, but more power to that set! I really thought it would be a unanimous backlash against it. Hopefully it will not end up like the Cantina Tin sets that's still in stores as we speak!

Regardless, Wally world has the best exclusives this year!

Well, I think it's pretty weird. I've never understood all these weird paint schemes Hasbro's coming up with for stormtroopers, even if they are from the comics. As for the Lando, I can understand people buying it for custom fodder. In fact, maybe I would :-X

I'm definitely gonna try to get a Wookiee set, but I probably won't pursue the other two.

I will .......PASSSSSSSSSSSSSS! There will be way to many other Comic Packs coming out that are way better then these REPACKS!  Hasbro is doing me such a great favor this year, its becoming so much EASIER to pass on this stuff!

Looks like an easy "PASS"! Maybe next time if they include a bonus 1/1 scale Lando Mustache I'd be in for it.

Lando & Kashyyyk Trooper look good to me, but not very impressed with the other four.  ::)

I can handle the Wookie, clone pack. The others look like passes to me.

I have a soft spot for the Marvel-styled toys too but because of the hours I spent reading those SW comics.  I used to have every one of those 107 comics pinned to my wall, so any figures based on those comics are a guaranteed sell for me.

Besides, Lando's the original baddest ************ in the Star Wars universe.  And now he comes with a red cape?  Oh, hell yeah.  :D
