I'm surprised they're going so big with this line so quickly... I mean, there's only about 15 figures in existence but they've done Jabba, a Speeder Bike, and now these.

But hey... looks awesome.

The Wampa does look pretty amazing, as does Luke.  Cool set, can't wait to get this one too.  As much as I like the past Ultra line Wampa (the last one we got), it does make me wonder what a new 3 3/4" scale one would look like at this point.

Love both the new deluxe sets. 

I wonder if/hope clean face Luke and his Taun Taun are slated for later, since they do love reusing parts.

What a silly question!  Of course they're coming... in the wave after this one.  ;)

Are these still going to be $24.99 when if they hit Target?

I love how Target lists this item.  Can't order it online.  It doesn't exist in a store.  If you use the store pickup option the DPCI # is the same as Jabba and Scout Trooper, so you'll just get a Jabba when you show up.

That Wompa looks a lot like the Ultra series one from a few years ago just bigger.

My thoughts precisely.

How close is the scale on that old Ultra Wampa?  I'm wondering if buying a 6" one and putting it in the 3 3/4" display might be a good idea, if it's not wildly inaccurate to go with a larger one.

Depends how accurate you want things to be I guess, but a 6" Wampa would be significantly larger in such a small scale than a 4" Wampa...  When you get into scale at that size, small things make big differences.  Like speederbikes, or snowspeeders, for instance.  Some folks didn't mind the vintage molds on those, but the reality, especially to people who pay close attention to scale, is that they were grossly oversized.

The Wampa would be kind of a similar thing.  Some people may not care, but if scale matters to you, it'll be noticeable.
