The more ESB/Hoth goodies, the better.  I'd buy both packs.

I've got three turrets right now already from the 2007 set, two of which are in a Hoth dio... the other I've got in a random fan fiction diorama surrounded by a 6-man squad of Kota'a Militia Rebels.  I could definitely use another turret or two for stuff like that... also I wouldn't mind creating a blast hole in one from battle damage.

Interesting how Hasbro brings up the Ion Cannon when AFI didn't even ask about it.

Q2) Will Hasbro ever re-issue the ULTIMATE HOTH PLAYSET (debuted at Target) or will we they just re-issue the HOTH REBEL TURRET?

A2)  The Ultimate Battle Pack as it was originally released will not be coming back.  Instead, there will be a new configuration including the Turret and some other new bits.  Don’t get your hopes up for an Ion Cannon, though…we looked at this a few years back and it was simply too massive to be done for something that was not a vehicle.

It's been asked before, so they're maybe nipping that in the bud.  People have asked for it a couple times I think.  ???

The Big-Ass Cannon & Turret set looks great! Gonna have to pick up more than just two of that one.

I shouldn't be so ticked off about these sets but I am. AT-ST with a bunch of cool stuff for nearly the same price as last year. Spending a tone of money just to get the beardless Hoth Soldier. Probably only going to pick up the Rebel set.

Lame on giving us yet another bearded Hoth Trooper...they could have at least gone with a mustachioed one :-[

I'm done for the rebel set for sure if I ever actually see these, but meh on the Imperial one. I don't need another At-ST.

I'll buy both, but I'm already on board for multiples of the Rebel set...  If people don't want their turret, hit me up.  Same on the bearded trooper.

I'd have preferred a non-bearded guy too, but I also dig the diversity.

The radar cannon looks, to me, much too large btw.  The POTF2 one, I think, is pretty accurately scaled.  So this one, I may have extras of.  I'm going to compare, but I think they really put that on steroids, I dunno.

Love that turret though, and want multiples.  Always have. :)

I'll buy both as well.  Nice to see some actual value in these exclusives so far - and at decent prices.  Wasn't there a radar canon thing in the POTF2 days?  I'm drawing a blank for some reason.   :-\

I feel the money leaving my wallet just looking at these. These sets are perfect! I'm game for two or three of the Rebel Set, and at least two of the Imp set. And if clearance rolls around... well, I'll just say that space might become a major issue.

And the VTAC Snowtrooper has popped up quite a bit since 2007. The only reason for one to NOT have a small army of these guys is that they don't WANT one. I'm happy to have yet another opportunity to army build this great figure.

There was, but this appears to be an all-new sculpt.  I'm liking that piece quite a bit.  It seems like it may be significantly larger than the POTF2 radar laser cannon.

Ok, so the more I think about these, the more I like them. Definitely going to make the Rebel set priority though.

My only gripes are the AT-ST Driver and non Bearded Trooper are only 1 per set. I am getting three of each! These are great!

I have so much old stuff to purge now! Bye-Bye remaining POTF2 stuff.....
