The shouting Jedi chick from the arena battle indeed has a name, so I thought I'd update:

She dies  :( Another fallen Jedi. But she would make a good figure for a sequel to this line of exclusives....

I'd like to see Pablo Jill get a major update...  I'd probably buy Mace again if he came with a "burnt" robe and softgoods skirt piece.  I'd take that freakish shouting chick for sure.  One of the Nikto we got (with the static poses) would be nice to see upgraded.  Barris Offee update...  There's good choices left.  Shaak Ti could use some nicer arm articulation too, for sure.

Hope Hasbro gets around to doing a super-super-articulated Aayla Secura to match that upcoming TCW version. She'd be great with maybe an alternate Geonosian Warrior? Hmmm....

Just found these sets. Is the destroyer droid / yoda set just repacka with a cloth robe?  I'd love to only buy 5 out of the 6 sets.

Scored these using the DCPI today.  They pack out at 1 full set per case.

The Yoda is actually a repaint of the Kybuck Yoda with a new softgoods robe.  This new robe includes the hood, which is indicative of the prequels.  All of the previous sg Yoda robes have had no hood, and that one was originally released with the VOTC Yoda.

For some reason, I don't like the Yoda ... he was cooler with the Kybuck in the TAC, but without his alien horse pal, he just seems awkward....at least to me.... :o

I opened all these guys up the other night. I dunno. One new figure per package makes the sets lack luster, especially with the new price. I do like the battle droids though. All they have to do is improve the arms, paint the eyes and use a better plastic and these will be perfect.

I FINALLY saw these at Target yesterday after a lot of searching, but the only two sets that weren't there are really the only two I want, the Kit Fisto set and the Coleman Trebor set. I guess I'll just keep looking....

I don't think the Coleman Trebor set is out yet.

Why not? I saw these sets for the first time (surprised how small the packaging is!), and I couldn't find the Coleman set.

They are all out as they all ship in the same case.

Yeah, I picked up the entire set over 2 weeks ago.  I went to 6 Targets yesterday looking for the Ugnaught and Slave Leia (waste of time) and saw the Geo sets at most of them.

I thought there were only six sets and Trebor was not part of this one.  Oh well...I haven't seen it yet then.
