Looks like a decent set. The clean Wolffe is cool, and it's nice to see the lightsaber gauntlet packed with Plo Koon again. The crappy articulation, movie-style rifles, and lack of jetpack plugs are lame though. Since I'm still a sucker for the Clone Wars stuff, I'll probably pick this up. Hopefully the price is decent, like $20-$25.

This wasn't the 'Wolf Pack' I was thinking of.

Well, I may just be skipping the carded Phase II Commander Wolf, now.  I wish the 'troops had a bigger image of it so that we might be able to discern any differences between this version and the carded release.

Is this another WalMart exclusive like last year's Ultimate Gift Set?

The troopers look to be "new" repaints, while Wolffe and Plo look like straight re-packs to me. That still makes it better than the last set.

Guessing this will hit around the holidays, probably Walmart.

So we got an extra BP and multipack for this year, that is a step up. I still want that fourth Class I ship we were promised, though that seems unlikely to happen now.

Would've rather seen a Phase 2 501st set with Krell.

I take it that this is a Wal-Mart exclusive like the other Ultimate Gift set was?

This is a great example how Hasbro can bring out a neat set at low cost to them that collectors want. The troopers look like they have phase II helmets, and although I don't need the Plo or Wolfe, I will be happy to buy a set or maybe two just for the troopers.

Why not the soft goods deluxe Plo Koon.

Anyway, nice to see something new for CW. (I'll pass on unless it hits clearance, the reduced articulation was a deal breaker for me and the CW line.)

My thoughts exactly.  There is no need for me to waste my money on the basic-carded version (which I have yet to find at retail) when I can pick this one up later this year.  We're all expecting to this to hit around the holidays, right?

Why is a pack of four unremarkable figures now called an "Ultimate Gift Set"? What's so "Ultimate" about it? Now if it included a couple of vehicles it might live up to its name.

It's called ULTIMATE because unlike other Star Wars Hasbro they are planning to ship it to a store and you will actually be able to find and buy it.  Maybe.
