Holy crap is the jetpack clone lame. They easily could of done a couple clones with Rex from the Battle of Christophsis. Looks like I'll be making my own battle pack.

Holy worthless pile of **** batman! :)

The Gelagrub set looks like it'll be nice, but sparse for what you'll pay.  One figure and a mount?  Yeesh.

And the Commando Droids force you to buy animated Clones, so I think I'm passing on that one now as well. 

Really, they all kinda blow in one way or another.

By the way, Luke wasn't even at the battle of Endor.  :)  Fantastic theme.

The Ewok set is such an easy pass it's not even funny...  The Gelagrub set stings.  You should get at least 2 Clones, but that appears to not be the case.  I'll buy it, but begrudgingly.  One grub and one Clone?  That sucks.

Looking forward to the grub (despite the price) and the commando droids! :)

The other two are easy passes, although unfortunately I'll probably buy the Endor one when I see it for the glider, which I missed the first time around. :-\

Wow - bring on the suck!

Out of the four, I think the only one I'm "kinda" happy is coming is the Gelagrub Patrol one. Sure there should be two clones and two grubs, but since the Dewback and Stormtrooper was $14.99 ten years ago, it's only fair that it's a $23 item now.

The rest are lame.

Like Jesse pointed out - Luke wasn't even at the Battle of Endor - why not just pack in two more Ewoks?

The Commando Droids set should have just had four droids - there's no need for another animated clone - I suppose if I had to pick one other set I didn't mind - this would be it.

And of course, I'm still peeved that the Gunship Gun Pod pack only comes with ONE pod....

Battlepacks are officially no longer a good "value".

Wow, those are a bit disappointing.  It definitely seems like the "less for more" theme is carrying over across the line anymore.  The Gelagrub is kind of cool, and something I might pick up - but like many have mentioned it seems pretty sparse for $20-25 anymore.  I'm most disappointed in the Endor pack, since I was really looking forward to seeing what was included there.  I really don't have a need for anything in there, but they'll probably make that ewok just different enough that I might be tempted.  It is too bad really, the battle packs used to really feel like a pretty good value (even the figure only ones), but that seems to be slowly going away.  We used to get 5 figures for $20 (at least), and now we're getting what used to be $10-15 deluxe figures.

Well, I need a couple gelagrubs with the 327th Star Corps rider.  There's no way around that.

I do love me some commando droids, those things were totally badass in the Clone Wars show.  I'll need to see the figures.

The clone pods for the gunship, well, yeah I'll get those too.  Looks good, will look good on the gunships i reckon.

The Endor one I doubt I'll get, sweet ewok or no sweet ewok.

So definites on the slug and pods, maybe on the commando droids and no to the endor.

I'm not really as disappointed as most of you are in these, for a change.  Usually by this time I'll have the pitchforks and torches at the ready.

Lame lame lame.  Hasbro's only milking me for some of the Gunpod sets.  Pass on the others.  Put these back at $19.99 and I might think about it, but I don't like paying more and getting less so they can sit on these.   ::)

Let me guess, the Ewok will be painted differently and the Imperial will have a new head on him.

It'll be interesting to see if the Commando Droids in this BP are different from the basic figure release. They probably will be knowing them.

Let me guess, the Ewok will be painted differently and the Imperial will have a new head on him.

Maybe it'll be the Imp Officer that was dropped from the Assault on the Endor Bunker BP.

It looks like I picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue. :-\

It looks like we are seeing the last days of the battlepack.

The only thing that has me hoping they continue is the inclusion of larger items like the grub or the Yavin cart.
