So I finally ended up with this set this week... am I right that it's entirely EU?  or are these kids based on kids from EII or EIII?

I'd go a step further and say it's entirely just slapped together/made up by Hasbro.  They're good Padawan filler though. 

Other than Vader of course, it's just a little filler set to me, but I liked it.

I used my imagination to say the 2x little kids were from EpII and the other two Jedi were from EpIII temple massacre...  does that count?

Nope.

They're going EU.

It's good they included that Gary Colman tribute figure in the JA 5-pack.

Picked this set up from Crunchy Nug, definitely a completist purchase.

Oops. Meant this for the boarding party thread.

i picked up the jedi knight figure that is basicly the rots agen kolar body recolored and with a different head on ebay for $9....it;s nothing special but a random generic jedi knight is always cool tohave in my book. i think if they did some random kit bashed jedi fodder figure in new waves, mabey labeled him as a geonosis arena jedi or O66 jedi it'd be a great seller. the new charecter jedi from the geo-arena 2 pks. seem to do well....im not a huge little padawan fan so i didnt ge the rest....anyone else get the whole set and open it?

I got one, and I was pleased...  a couple human Padawans are long overdue IMO, especially for O66 slaughtering fun (Now just need Cin Dralig to go with them), and I found the fairly generic Jedi Master to be worthy on the Jedi shelf too...  I may pick up an extra ROTS Sith Eyes Anakin just to have him choking that guy out at some point as he tries to defend the Padawans or something.

To me though, it's a good set, but an attrocious price for all of it...  The fate of Disney stuff though, and sometimes it's too cool to pass up.  I got all the Star Tours Droids too, and while they were pricey, I don't regret getting them either...  well, not all of them anyway.  A couple really blow, especially the latter ones.

Just kind of something in mind.  I'm thinking about adding a couple customs if I can at some point as well.  I'd really like some Younglings to surface as an "extra" with future figures.  I'm really hoping for Cin Drallig in the future though, which I'll have Anakin choking him out I think, and then some Younglings around him making a futile stand against him or something.
