Just ordered a second set at the $23.99 price point. I just couldn't help myself at that price.
The set is not my favorite but I don't hate it, and I was happy with my original set at $30. Love the TIE Pilot, Sandtrooper and Geonosian, and Dooku's Droid and the BAD are great figures too. I'm also happy to get more red Battle Droids, as I am the only person who likes that redone Battle Droid (I think I got several sets from various BOGOs and clearances). Like Jesse said, the only real "bad" figure in the set is the Clone, due to the reasons he listed about Clone fatigue and such.
$60 is a good deal considering that figures are $10 plus individually but with multipacks, people are looking for a bit of a bargain. All but one of these figures are repaints. Easy to see why people would be hesitant at $60, but jump on it at $30 and below.
