I'm thinking this is the second UBP for Target.  You have seven figures plus two $20 ships.  That would be a decent deal at $60 retail.

*DING DING*

I believe you are correct sir.  The assortment on the box is also the same assortment which Hasbro identified for the Carkoon set from Comic-Con.  (And wasn't it a $50 retail last year?)  To me, that's a dead giveaway.

$50 last year - $60 this year.

7 figures? I just see 2 clones, Ani,2 BD, and 1 SBD. where is number 7?

I really like the looks of this set and depending on the price and release date I will try and get it. Only thing that sucks is that I will be stuck with 3 Ani figures by the end of the year at this rate :-\

Oops, you're right.  There are only six.  Still a nice set for $60 - would make a nice X-Mas gift.

The AT-AP wasn't even at the Battle, they should gave us one of those cannons.

I agree 100%  Plus Hasbro has been very shy about doing them and this would have been the perfect set to have one in.

$50 last year - $60 this year.

I could be wrong, but I think they might have been $59.99 last year, and were on sale for a week at $50.

I believe $49.99 up front and $49 in the ad.  Or it might have been the even $49 up front.

I double checked a couple of sites, one has it at $59.99 and one has it at $49.99. Whatever, decent deals either way.

I'm in for 4 of these new sets, and maybe one Sarlaac.

It's a cool set.  I like these UBP's.

I dig the Republic deco on the AT-AP.  Very much like the deco on the AT-TE.  And this battle pack will save me on getting the $20 AAT repaint.

I wish it could save me $20.  It's just different enough that I'm gonna want both tanks.  Which, combined with the 3 different ones I already have, is going to put the AAT mold in the running for the most repainted vehicle since the Jedi Starfighters.

I like the AT-AP deco and the AAT is okay.

I'll pay $30-35-ish on clearance and if I can't I won't lose too much sleep over it.

I can take or leave this one.

This is a tough one. I'll take the ships but burn the figures.

I love this and I will be buying multiples. The new deco on the AT-AP looks super, and the set is also great for army building purposes.

Now I really really want General Loathsom. :)

The AAT paint job is very different, so two in new ones in one year.
