I want this Jedi 2pack, but I really don't know if they will come to Germany, it seems like the ROTS wave would come first? :o
Sorry for my bad English, i am German.

If anyone ends up with any extra BAD parts from this wave - let me know.  I'm looking for a head, left arm, and right leg.

I was just over at HTS, and it looks like they are offering a "value pack" for this wave with one each of the figures for $44.99.  Not a tremendous savings necessarily, but of course its put up right after I get confirmation of my previous order shipping.  It would be nice if they continue to do these "value sets" for upcoming waves as well.

As long as they sell well, they should keep offering them.

I hear ya. I'd have bought this set from them immediately if it were up sooner.

Ah well...  So do we take the chance and wait that Hasbro will do this with subsequent waves?

I received this wave via HTS yesterday, and although I'll admit that I bought the majority of this wave just to get the Build-a-Droid - it is a pretty disappointing wave overall to me.  I really like the Coruscant Clonetrooper, and the RA-7 B-a-D is great as well.  I guess the Jedi two pack is alright for those who missed them before, but I had them from the Council Packs.  The Saleucami trooper is a nice enough figure too, but not one I necessarily needed another one of.  Same goes for the Imperial Engineer, which will fit in with the Imperials nicely enough.  I do feel sorry for fans of Jodo Kast, because to me, that's a pretty crappy figure.  I know there was likely a reason for them to use that sculpt, but it really doesn't hold up after all the nice Fetts/Mandos we've gotten in the past few years.  Anyways, like I said, I'm a sucker who bought a bunch of figures I didn't necessarily want just to get the build-a-droid - but it seems like there could have been a lot better choices for a repaint wave for the most part.

I've found everything in this wave at brick and mortar stores except for Jodo Kast.  I'm a little surprised that this is such a popular figure.  I've only seen Jodo in stock at collector shops that are charging $12.  I won't pay such a ridiculous price.  I have a hard time paying $9.99 for a figure at KayBee after all.

Regardless of that, I picked up another Quad Cannon Clone so that I could finish off the RA-7 droid.  That's actually the best BAF droid of the bunch thus far.

You pretty much summed up my experience with this wave.

I bought a squads worth of Imp Engineers and want more Coruscant clones. I've got many left over parts now. In fact I bought another Jodo Kast and 2-pack Jedi set to make another RA-7. But I really don't want the extra Jodo or Jedis and am looking to trade/sell the RA-7.

I'll sell the Jodo for $5 and the 2 Jedi as a set for $5 (both without the droid parts). I haven't made up my mind on the trade for RA-7 so if anyone is interested, PM me.

I've got an extra Jodo. You want him? (without the droid part)

Just $5 plus exact shipping. LMK.

Thanks for the offer Sal.  But I'll wait until I find one at a store.  I'm still hunting for the WalMart exclusives and the comic 2-pack wave with Thrawn.

No problem. Looks like I have a buyer for it now.

So basically after the sale of the figure I will have paid about $2 for a little head of a droid.

Found Jodo Kast today. He's a really crappy figure, but the gorgeous paintjob more than makes up for it. :)

I can't find the Jedi myself yet, not that I really want them either, but gotta get that droid part.  Found a Jodo but really just need parts from the Jedi and Jodo, not the figures.

I was able to trade for those extra parts, so anyone might want to keep that in mind before pulling the trigger on spending 7-8 bucks a droid part.

The piece from the Jedi (which are relatively abundant around here) is the only one I still need, but I just have no need for those figures. :-\
