I still haven't seen these, but I will definitely be getting these when I see them.   I wish I could create awesome dioramas on my own, but since I can't.... I like all the extras Hasbro can throw into a figure package.   I'd love to see "real" accessory packs that would come with extra pieces to throw in a Jabbas throne room diorama, not just rehashed weapons.   As a diorama builder, I love all the 25th Anniversary sets they've come up with.

I have to see them for myself before I decide to pick them up for my son.  But they do look cool!

Before Thanksgiving we were searching Wal-mart diligently for the Cantina Bar scenes, but when I finally saw them at a Wal-Mart, we passed.  We already have the figures, and we already have the bar scene cardboard playset.  We can make a cool bar scene without the stools.  We may pick up some down the road just for the new figures though.

I've still never seen either of these Trash sets at retail.  I picked up one Han/Luke set in a trade last month, and have another several sets pending via a couple more trades as well, so hopefully soon I'll have my boxed and loose Trash sets, and can finally move on with my life!   ;)

I'm in Canada and it's been months since we've seen anything new. But if it ever shows up, I'll probably buy it.

It's been 3 months since my last post and I still haven't found them.  I guess it's time to start hitting the trade routes.   Of course, I still haven't found a 2003 figure yet, either.

I've seen these in the store only 1 time. That was about around mid or late January I believe. Never seen them since. Most Walmarts around here don't even have a tag on the shelf for them. Very elusive these are.

Where are you getting these from?  I haven't seen them available in any store or online.  LMK...

As bad as my Wal-Mart is they got in a couple of sets.  Now if they would mark them down like the Cantina figures Iit would be a good deal.

I found these when they first came out at Walmart, but I did have to go to the Walmart further away than my local one to get them. These sets are super nice and worth it although Chewie is a statue. LOL

Can someone pick some of these up for the rest of us who don't have them?  They've never been around in my area before... never!

Thanks!

They look absolutely excellent.
They are a bit pricey in the UK approx £15 each+ postage.
An extra £5 each, more than when the 25th anniversaries came out.
I don't know wether the base is worth a fiver or not but I will hopefully get them. They will look cool next to the 25th's.

I'll look this weekend as I think the Wal-Mart near me still had a few sets. I think they are around $16.90 or so. There were about three of each last weekend and they have been there for a while.
