This is a really great battle pack. I'm glad to see that Hasbro has started to embrace putting some new figures into the packs instead of just re-releases and repaints.

Like everyone has mentioned, a real great battle pack there.  Some much requested characters all in one swoop.  I'm really excited for the Legacy stuff on the way, its looking good.

OMFG.  That transport is gorgeous, as is the pilot and astromech.  Perfect set.

I've got two pretty decent custom sleds already, but now I can add to my Yavin scene with some great variety.  Wow.  This is maybe the most interesting battle pack I've seen them make...

And also, throw on a jacket onto that ground crew guy, and you effectively have a decent Rebel Fleet Trooper... at least good enough for my interests.

Yeah, this is a great set.  I actually want everything in the battlepack.  I don't have to settle for 2 out of 4 good figures/etc.

What the hell, they are not even remotely close...way different helmets as well as the different colors

Don't get Hasbro the idea :-X. That is all we need for another sub par RFT. I don't want anything but a resculpt RFT in the way he should be.

If they want to single card that Tech with some tools and maybe a droid lift or anything else in the ANH hanger bay than cool, but no trying to fit that figure in anywhere he doesn't belong.

Now this is what battle packs should be.  I'm buying - and probably more than one.

Good stuff.

Are there two Imperial Lt's in the other pack, or one? There are two pictured, but only Lt. Renz listed.

Regardless - well done Hasbro!

Those are in the Assault On The Shield Generator battle pack.  According to RS's notes from the presentation, that set may only include 1 of the Imperial Officers.

The return of the mini-rig?  Cool.

This is hands down the coolest thing they showed.  I have wanted that R5, and hell, a Yavin Technician (or whatever you'd call him) for ever.  Awesome.  And the cart, too!

Great set. What would make it even better is a ladder for the x-wing and some more boxes like the ones that were suppost to come out as a accessory set years ago.

I thought the same thing!  I will pick one of these up...the current configuration of the table in my collection room is looking like a hangar with the Falcon, two X-wings and a B-wing...so it would be neat to have that stuff intermingled.

Oh HELLS Yes I'm getting this set!

Way to freakin' go Hasbro! You knocked it out of the park with this set! Man, I've been waiting for the Hangar crew member and Hangar shuttle cart for years! Now to get red leader and his very cool decoed R5 unit on top of it...Blows my mind. I'm getting two of this set for sure. Now here's hoping the Hangar Bay crew member is single carded later to army build, or much better, in a battle pack of 4-5 of them. I'd like 10 of those crew members. (I won't buy that many sets of this though.)

PLEASE Hasbro, soon after you release this set (like 6 months after), please rerelease the figures on card and the crew member in a battle pack.

heck, make it an Ultimate battle pack with a new rebel general not yet made (use the same mold from before but with a different head), Rebel honor guard, 3 rebel grounds crew, another cart, ladders to get up the x-wing and a new x-wing (that is to say a newly redecoed x-wing of a pilot who's x-wing has not yet been made). Oh and of course toss in THAT pilot to go with the set and his specific Astromech. That would make for an awesome scene, IMO.

I'm geniuinely excited about this new battle pack from Hasbro though. Again, sign me up for two of them!
