I thought of the same thing when going through those pics as well.  Everyone called that there would be a box set of these down the road, and here they are.  Pass for me as well.  Good for those who are late to the game or missed them I guess though, and they look like they could be some sort of online exclusive or something in that setup.  At least they didn't throw in one new one in each set to get us to buy them again :).

Yeah.  If you're a serious collector, you have all of these, and if you're casual collector, you don't want them.

Not surprised to see it, but I am surprised to see it so soon.  I think the box displays look cool, but not cool enough to buy.

Only could find half of these at stores, so it looks like I'm getting these for the Starkiller, Solo, RFT, and Snowtrooper. ::)

If you do you'd be my hero Jayson... I've tried to get some before but the deals have never gone through for whatever reason.

Yeah, I kind of wished I had snagged an extra Vader for the head swap. Oh well.

At least they did a box set that consists of figures that were hard for some people to get at the time.  I will give them that.

Barring the packaging being gorgeous, I'm passing as well.  I have a full carded set of McFigures, and their art is outstanding as is, and look better than a box set IMO.

Loves me some McArt though.

Well, put.  These will probably sit at TRUs for a while.

I will wait on buying this set since I am only looking to pick up a Starkiller & Vader for my Jedi Set. Too bad they are not adding the Luke from C4 into this set.

You must have missed it - Luke is in the box with Starkiller and Vader.
