This is a great set...just picked it up today. There's sort of a metallic eggshell finish to silver Mando paint apps that is awesome.

Even the diorama is one of the coolest ones I have seen, kind of a 3D relief effect, ala Nahdar Vebb.

To those who have picked up the set, how different is the paint job on these Mandos compared to the one from the DLX Speeder Bike set? 

I know the set has some unique weapons that the DLX bike version and the basic carded versions won't/don't have, but if the paint jobs are similar I think I'll pass on the $25 box and just buy the DLX bike set and 1x basic figure to flank my Pre Vizsla.

The speeder Mando is darker/different than the BP set, closer in color to Pre Vizsla.

Yes, I found it at TRU last week along with the ARC Troopers BP. They only had 1 of each on the shelves. I have not heard about this hitting anyplace else yet, but I'm sure it will eventually.

I found this Battlepack tonight at a WalMart on my way home.

I was thinking originally getting two of this set to open, but the Mandos are so similar, I think I'm gonna stick to just one set to open.

Besides accessories, are there any differences to the Mandos in this set? I'm pretty tired so I might be missing the obvious, but at first glance it looks to me like they are all the same.

Saw this on the shelves today for only the 2nd time, at Target of all places. Don't recall this having been spotted there. I'm still toying with the idea of picking a second one up, but no real urgency there.
