Yeah - go me! hehe...
I opened up the Defense of Hoth set just now and it's great. The new laser canon is pretty cool - would have been nice if the dish could have pivoted, but that's only a minor negative.
I'm glad to finally have my hands on the beardless Hoth Rebel Trooper. Considering that they are the exact same paint deco body-wise, it really is crappy that Hasbro just didn't throw this head and head-wrap accessory in with the TLC release.
Hopefully Hasbro will give us a way to army-build this version at some point in the future.
I am definitely leaning towards picking up a second Defense of Hoth BP just to snag the extra playset pieces and the beardless Hoth Trooper.
The build-a-droid repaint is fine, definitely the weakest part of the set IMHO.
I know some people have complained about the value on this set, but I think it's pretty good. These sets could have been in window-box packaging and cost $60 each if Hasbro and Target really wanted to go that route. Thankfully, they kept them sensibly priced at $40 each.
