I also love the fact that, apparently looking to save money on the packs, Hasbro chooses to drop yet another figure but keeps the trading card game. Nice.
If they wanted to save money, slap them on the card, and ditch the box format, which in now 2/5th's empty space, but I suppose the box is part of the lure for the average consumer.
Ugh...some of those packs would be good if there was another figure. I hope they are exclusives, because $25 for 3 figure defeats the intent of the battle packs, which was a gift set or a value (well, in the early years). Might as well buy Li'l Timmy 3 figures of your choosing instead.
Exclusives or not, what happened to Hasbro's alleged "all new or all repacks" when it came to Battle Packs? Who wants to get hosed because they just want that Cad Bane or that clone with Rex and Grievous?
Coming soon in the summer of 12' - "Battle Pairs"
Wal-Mart and Target have those already, they just need to ROLL-UP prices on them.
