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?

Knowing how Target works lately, they'll either still be on temp price reduction for $25 or they will be price hiked to $50. :P

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.
