Personally, I am actually excited these sets. I have been hunting for them calling every local Target the last three days. I really like the new Radar Laser Cannon a lot and all of the repaints included in both sets are solid figures. The Cleaner AT-ST and Snowtroopers are also welcome, I plan on phasing out a large portion my older Snowtroopers for this version. I do hope the Beardless Rebel and AT-ST Driver see single carded releases in the near future. I just wish Tunghori got those two in so I would not have to buy so many sets. As of now, I plan on buying 5 Rebel sets and 3-4 Imperial ones. I will be selling off some Turrets, Radar Dishes, E-Webs, At-ST's and E-3P0's if anyone is just looking for those items. The Value of these sets are really good when you consider the AT-ST was $44 last year alone. I am even looking forward to Geo sets 2 so I hope they pop up soon too.
It seems some guys just lost the loving feeling toward SW's and nothing makes them happy anymore. No insult intended but I see this attitude across some boards, I do not blame them because the line still seems to be struggling to get it's footing back. My only disappointment with the line overall is the slowdown & long waits between releases for the realistic line. I am ready for new stuff...now!
