They offer refunds on clearance prices?

I thought it was only sale prices...

I still don't like this pack, but I've been getting tempted on buying it simply because I can't find anything new.   :-\

Patience. In a couple of weeks these will be out for $10 and you'll be glad you waited.

I caved and bought it yesterday.  It's pretty much a guarantee that these will hit clearance so I'm saving my receipt.   ;)

Did you use the Target coupon?  $5 more and you would've gotten $5 off.

I always use the Target coupon.  I can always find something else to purchase enough product to meet $25.  It was a bit messy however trying to work out my 3 order forms for the Hasbro Play Rewards.  Damned subtraction!

Probably saved about $80-$100 using it so far.   :)

...oh and I still don't like this BP btw.   :-X

My receipt got sent to play rewards. :P

Just a side note, but I don't know if anyone was watching the prequels on Spike TV this weekend - but I noticed yesterday, between AOTC and ROTS, they had a preview/announcement on the Force Unleashed.  They showed footage and talked about how you can play as Darth Vader for the first level of the game, and showed Vader on Kashyyyk force choking wookiees - likely where this pack is originated from.  That might be old news to some, but I just thought I'd pass it along.

Seems like a new scene to me. A lot of talk about this pack has been speculation about a scene on Kashyyyk.

Yeah the first level you play as Darth Vader, according to yesterday's somewhat short preview...  You play as him till you find your apprentice I guess, then it shifts over.  I figured right away that's why the pack was made then.  Makes sense now, and too bad the pack couldn't have waited till the game's release.

Also too bad the Wookiees aren't a bit different than they are... imagine how awesome it would have been to get an all new Wookiee or two in this set.

I caught the preview as well, so that makes this set less sucky.

I think game delay really has skewed people's perception of the toys.  Vader does seem more appropriate for this set now.

This is why the video game should come before the toys.

Crazy thought, huh?

Well none of it is Hasbro's fault, from what I can tell.  I just can't believe how far the game got pushed back from the original launch date... hopefully it will be worth the wait... and I'd love to see a surprise tie in with more TFU figures being released around that time, though I don't know how Hasbro would feel about making more to conincide with the release.

I desperately want all-new, posable sculpts of Tarfful and Merumeru.

These have been kind of scarce around here. How are they selling in your neck of the woods?

I've only seen them twice then they were gone. I didn't buy one. Though I wasn't planning on it either. If I find them back out and at clearance price, I'll buy several for the troopers and custom paint the Wookiees. (I'll just be stuck with yet more Vaders)
