I saw these tonight, too. Was very tempted, but the wife was tagging along.

So those who have the defense on Hoth set, are the rebels headgear swappable? I can't really tell from the photos.

Oh yeah, the headgear's all about the same size.

I put Hoth Han's hat on some of my troopers too, and plan to swap out some Hoth Han legs with them maybe.  I have a hat I planned to cast at some point as well, without a scarf, which should add some diversity.  I've also added cloth scarves to a helmet or two, because I like the idea of the cloth hanging down like Luke's hat, or the vintage Reb Commander's hat had.

I'm gonna have to try some Targets today - my local Target has 10/17 in the hand-scanners when you ask someone to look up the item by DPCI #.

The employee I asked on Sunday was downright rude about it too.



When they are rude like that I just keep on bugging them about stuff.  "Where's the toilet paper at?  Do you know where I can find some toenail clippers?  Where?  Oh....okay."  Yeah, I'm odd.

Question on the Rebel set - does the box feel a tad too light?  I generally don't open the majority of my stuff, but it's nice to know I don't have a big box with just 3 figures and nothing else....   :-\

I didn't buy it, but I do remember thinking "man this feels empty" when I looked at it.

Compared to the AT-ST set, it's lighter since the stuff in it is smaller.  The Hoth Turret's pretty hollow.

Found both of these in Canada (Zellers stores) today.  The onslaught continues.

Just playing with my new toys...  ;D 

I'd love to get a couple more of each of these Battle Packs - they're damn sweet when combined with the AT-AT.

Great pic! They do absolutely rock!

I pick up my 4th set of each yesterday. I may get 1 more set of each as I now feel satisfied with my Turret/Radar Count. I can always use more Rebel troopers too! These are proving to be very popular, so far every set I picked up has been through the DCPI code as they are either sold out or Target did not set up the end cap.

Nice pic Jesse, thanks for sharing.  We haven't seen these put out here locally yet, but I hope to at least pick up the Rebel set - and if the budget allows, both of them.  Looking at your set up there, it really illustrates what a good year it has been for the ESB, with the anniversary and all.  Particularly with the Hoth battle alone - we've gotten the new AT-AT, the new Snowspeeder, now these two battle packs (one including the nicely done AT-ST), not to mention the other figures we've seen.

I saw the sets on Tuesday for the first time, THey are very cool. Since I got the new AT-ST last year, I think I'd prefer the rebel set. My son wants both, naturally ;)
I also noticed that the rebel set is lighter in weight than the empire set due to the walker.
Very good year for Empire Strikes back toys, to be sure!

Itīs amazing how the radar laser cannon has evolved
of course the atst driver guy.

In a eu where troopers are showing variations, perhaps considering the cold weather, the atst driver from hoth could have been dressed more like a atat driver (as in vintage cardfronts), this is up to Hasbro to define this variation.
