Guys...I don't get this whole thing about lugging it home.  Buy it, open the figures, and chuck the package.  You can bring the figures home in your pockets.  Jeesh...I just don't get some of you...

An actual mouse droid figure on a card by itself?  That's probably the single coolest thing about this set to me.

I like the Revenge cards - not as big a fan of the big wheel display.  Nice to know there's nothing really "new" in there...

Good to see the Revenge of the Jedi wording on something and the new stuff is to come. ;)

And, a new giant picture of the 14-piece SDCC Mega Box Set.

Note:  the Endor Rebel is still black...  sure looks like they were able to keep that variant in the mix despite the "its not final yet, it might change" talk at Toy Fair.

Guess I'll be hunting down the Endor Rebel, and B-Winger (I want the card...  Keyan Farlander is, was, and always will be the EU character I remember from my return to Star Wars back in the early 90's).

Yeah, the minifigs were cool already, but two "exclusive" figures makes it a sale for me.  My only question is whether these variant figs will be available single carded later on.

I think they've confirmed that the Revenge carded figures are coming out, nothing changing from the boxed set other than the tiny mini-figures not being made widely available, and the box of course.

Cool set. If I can manage one at SDCC I will.

Hope detailers and online shops will sell the figures separately, cause I donīt like to repeat them.

Looking for Farlander B wing pilot, Tie fighter pilot, Black Rebel Commando.

Guess I'm gonna be "that guy" who thinks this is a lame set, but I'm one less guy t fight over it with, so good luck to everyone trying to get one.

If we do get these Revenge figures in stores as is rumored, I'll snag a few TIE Pilots and the black Endor soldier.

I don't care about it much myself. The mini carded mouse droid and Salacious Crumb are amusing, but that's all. I'll get the rebel if he appears in stores.

I agree with all of the above.

Seems it's 129.99.  Actually that's not bad.  Slightly over 10.00 a figure, less if you add in Crumb and the mouse droid.

Not to get all mathy on you, but its closer to $11 per figure at $130/12.  Probably closer to $13 when you get tax and shipping in there.  But if you count the two mini figures, youíre down to $11 per figure/card and get them all at once shipped to your door in a handy little display case (assuming they go up on HTS).  I buy at least one of each carded fig, so thatís not a bad deal at all versus retail, especially for an exclusive.
