Yup, I'm in too.  The box is just too nice.  I have a loose POTF2 version as well, so boxed is good for me.  I really like all of the OTC boxed vehicles and wouldn't mind dumping my POTF2 boxes but the timing is off for that right now.  I definitely have too many Slave I's, but the new package is very nice, IMO.  

With the Falcon if they ever go on clearance (need to have Walmart bring this in for that to happen), I might get a second, due to the electronics and then dump my POTF2 version.  Loony, eh?

I'm just patiently waiting for the announcement of OTC versions of the B-wing, A-wing, Tie Interceptor, Tie Bomber, AT-ST, AT-AT and skiff :-*

Just wait until they release all the vintage mini-rigs in OTC packaging, then you'll be a torrent of sweatiness.

That might be the only way I get the ISP-6.

This just in from Comic-Con!

The Sam's Club exclusive OTC Falcon not only includes the previously mentioned Cantina Han and Mechanic Chewie (ugh), but also includes MMC C-3PO, PotJ Ben, PotJ R2, and CT Luke!

That's 6 figures!

Too bad they are all repacks that I already have...  :-\

Guess I can pass on this one for sure and just pick up the regular version.

Hasbro REALLY enjoys repacks, don't they?

And on further speculation, these figs don't even have weapons!

I'm thinking about picking this new version up, if only for the electronics and lights.

Fire bad. Lights pretty.

Buffy fan ;D

I'll be picking up the Falcon, one for boxed display and if it hits clearance, probably a second then sell off the POTF2 version.  

Thanks for that pick.  I was wondering what that rehash repack was going to be with.  At least it makes marginal sense with the Falcon.  Should have repacked POTF2 Luke blast shield though.  Sure, it's a crappy sculpt, but at least it would have been a less rehashed figure.

I wasn't thrilled when I saw the new setup with this Falcon on Wednesday.  With the 6 "carded" figures displayed/attached at the top, it pretty much guarantees that I'll have to be buying this version from Sam's, rather than the regular one in the stores.  I'll just pull the Falcon out, and leave the figures in the long display bubble.  The Hasbro guys couldn't give me a price quote/estimate on the Sam's version one though.  Hopefully it's not too much more than the regular retail one...
