Target "The Rise of Darth Vader" Battle Pack
« on: February 9, 2013, 05:06 PM »
I haven't seen pics yet, but thought I'd start up a thread so we have one when pics surface... 

Sounds like it includes Vader, Operating Table and some other figures.  I'm also not sure if this is really a TVC item or if it's a cheapy Legends item... I'll just put it here for now (Vintage) and move it later if needed.

I'm betting cheapy.  It got the "playset" label on twitter and I have a hard time believing it'll have a lot new in it.  I'm anxious to see though as I liked that whole scene (just not the dialogue) and would love a cool display of it.

It's Vader, Emperor, FX-6, Shocktrooper and table.

The hasbro dio photo showed Chopper droid, not FX-6.

Wow.  Odd figure lineup for this set if the Hasbro photo is accurate.

-MH Darth Vader with electronic lightsaber
-TVC Emporer Palpatine / Darth Sidious (ROTS)
-Shock Trooper (which version is unclear)
-Chopper Droid (ROTS)
-Operating table

Now, if you didn't get that Sidious figure, then this set could be worth it for that figure alone.  But aside from that, this set is kind of "EHHH".

I couldn't convince myself to get the old battle pack when it was $13 at TRU.

Will Target cancel this one like BATTLEFIELDS OF NABOO? LOL.

This set looks horrible, I'm not sure this will stay in the Vintage category. Vintage-packaging doesn't come with window-box. This set will need the window-box to help it move.

Doesn't look like anything new in there. I can skip this one.

So there are two exclusive Vader packs? At first I thought this one was the "Evolution" type set I kept seeing with the Vintage Padawan Anakin, Evolutions AOTC Anakin, Vintage Sith Eyes Anakin and Vader. So what store is that one exclusive to?

Yeah, and easy pass here as well.  Nothing new here really.  Between this and the Vader Evolutions set, it seems like Target really got the cruddy exclusives this time around.  Those both seem destined for clearance.
