The Turret Set - ok.  Only one scarved trooper?  K-3PO? 

AT-ST set - actually pretty good.  Shame that driver is stuck here.

I'm down for one AT-ST set and two Rebel sets. Just wish K-3PO wasn't included. WOuld have MUCH rather had two of the scarved beardless Hoth Rebel Troopers. Would have made more sense too. I wonder if there is time to fix that? Most likely not.  :-\

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

Same here... I'll probably move the existing AT-ST up to the Endor shelf, and then grab one of each of these sets.

It looks like these will be Target exclusives.

That's good and bad...  The UBP's, at least near me, didn't arrive in great numbers, not by a longshot.  Target's usually good about exclusives, but the bigger they are the less they tend to get, in my area anyway.  I guess time will tell.  They're set for around Christmas it said, but I'm betting on a slightly earlier release.

I'm happy these are coming "back" to Target.  I seem to be loosing my memory for some reason as of late, but I thought these usually come out shortly after Black Friday.

Target is the best when it comes to exclusives around here.  I've never had an issue getting something I wanted, so I'm happy to see these and the vintage packaged ships come here.

The only Target exclusives I have never seen were the Clone Wars Battle Packs from last year, but I think that had more to do with distribution than anything.

- Big-Ass Cannon & Turret, 2x Rebels, K-3PO
- Hoth AT-ST, 2x Snowtroopers plus new AT-ST Driver.   :-\

Any idea what these are going to cost?  Seems like we're getting considerably less than previous UBPs.   :-\

I have not opened my Wal Mart AT-ST yet so I may just hold off till these hit.

The large BP's were available at only 1 Target in my immediate vicinity last time but these will definately be on my "Wish list".

Here's hoping the Hong Kong loose figure guys have that alternate Hoth Rebel and AT-St driver in 5 packs.

I'm down for two of each, though I wouldn't mind a few more At-St drivers. Also dig that the bearded trooper at least has a lighter colored beard. Wish one of the Snowtroopers was a commander though.

I didn't realize that Hasbro had packaged samples at SDCC.

Not as fancy as previous "big" battle packs, but then again I'm not buying them for the box so it matters not to me.

Ugh. They just had to have the kind of packaging that shows off the figures.

Sorry, but theft has been rampant in my area lately, and pretty much any toy with this style of packaging has had something taken. And they'll go right for these sets, with the exclusive figures and all.

Hasbro loves the window box, especially for the exclusives...  I'm not a big fan more because window-style packaging costs a good bit more, and we could be getting stuff for less.  That said, it's a sales thing, and usually what retail requests out of something like this.  "Make it look purdy!"

I hear ya on the theft stuff though.  Pure horse****, and increasing around the collecting world unfortunately, not just your area.  I see it a lot more, and used to never see it.  :-\
