Didn't want to create a new thread, but anyone catch the new Clone Wars DVD 3pack at GH? 

Meh....

Yeah, if there is nothing unique in them, I'll pass.

Yet another DVD 3 pack.  Like Jayson mentioned, nothing unique and I'll pass on them as well.  I did have more respect for these when kids (or collectors) could get 3-4 figures for $10.  That's a pretty nice deal.  At the new $15 pricepoint (if that continues), its not quite as spiffy.

At ten bucks, I'd be all over it.  Fifteen, not so much.

Even at $15, it will be a good deal for me, because I don't have any of these figures.  Assuming there's another set with the baddies in it, I may make out pretty good.

I'm not sure there'll be a "baddies" set. Hasbro front loaded the CW line with primarily "hero" characters, the new villain figures like Dooku, Ventress and Destroyer Droids would be just hitting the pegs as a basic carded release. But, they could have a Super Battle Droid with Battle Droids set I suppose.

I'm thinking, if they do it, it will be Grievous, a Battle Droid, maybe a super Battle Droid.  Or maybe it will be another group of hero types like Obi and Rex.

I think there will be a second one as well.

Hopefully they will be straight re-packs and I can skip getting them altogether or if I feel so inclined grab a set of them for my MIB/MOC collection...

Glad I can pass on this as well.

Pass for me too.

I'm not collecting the animated line.

I'll end up getting an Anakin anyway in the Blue Stap set coming later.

And when I get another AT-TE, another Anakin and several clones I won't need.

As well I'll end up getting yet more animated figures I don't want in the Tank battle pack. I think that one has Anakin too. So there's THREE animated Anakins I'll have no use for.

So there is no reason for me to get this three pack, regardless of cost.

This is an easy pass for me. If they'd done something unique, like a new trooper deco, I might've considered it. If there's a villains set, though, I might go for that ... unless it's just a couple of Battle Droids and a Super BD. Got those guys already!

As some were speculating, it looks like there will be at least two of these sets.  RS has a new pic of a second Grievous/Kenobi/BD set.

It looks like Grievous' four arms are sculpted different, and the Battle Droid looks clean.

Saw a ton of these yesterday as well as bunch of the TFU sets.  Both of which I've never seen in person....at a Wal-Mart.

I saw this briefly at our local WM (although I think they may be gone now).  With them being $15 or higher, the value just doesn't seem to be there anymore.  Sure, its still cheaper than picking up the figs individually - which is nice - but there was just something about being able to get 3 (or sometimes 4) figures for $10.
