If the 3PO/R2 were easily found I'd be happy to pick up the Yoda. It's like a set sort of. Kind of like the vac metalized figures. If I'd not gotten Vader then R2, Boba, and the Clonetrooper all would be not quite as "interesting" to me.
As far as the silliness goes, these are kinda silly. My personal opinion is that time/$ could've been put into something else that I'd have appreciated more, but that's just the way the ball bounces.
It's got nice packaging, I'll give it that, but I could really care less about it since the R2/3PO was non-existant in my neck of the woods. They'd both display very nicely together though if I had that first set I think.
Anyway, for those really interested in this, more power to 'em... A new Dagobah Yoda with softgoods and removeable belt/snake accessories would've been much more appealing to me though!
