Just saw two reports on the net that the Imperial Forces pack has been spotted in Texas and SoCal...happy hunting :-*

SCORE!!!

Based on a tip from my local collecting buddy Matthew (FishEyedLouie), I managed to snag the last two Imperial Forces 4-packs at our local TRU this evening!  Thanks a ton Matt, I really appreciate the heads up!   ;)

I'm going to take a gander at them for a little while, and see about opening one of them up and maybe posting a short review of the set in the Toy Reviews forum.  Wish I had a damned digital camera though...   :'(

My wife and I stopped by our local TRU and they had about 6 of the Imperial 4-packs.  She is so awesome that she let me pick up one of these, so what an awesome addition to my collection!  :)

Now I'm debating if I want to leave this boxed up or if I want to open it up.  What am I thinking?  I'm not going to open it up.   ;D

Yep, I was never a fan or wanted a split belly Tauntaun but we're getting one.  I'll buy this if only for the Astromech and Leia, she looks pretty sweet

The Bounty Hyner set is definitely my least favorite of the three.

Money is tight for the next couple of weeks, so even if I saw the Impreial 4-pk I would probably have to pass.  I am going to have to avoid TRU and all the other retailers until my paychecks start coming in from my new insurance sales job. :-\

 :P

What is that big white thing in the lower right-hand corner of the package?  I can't make out to what that is.

So, has anyone mentioned that the Leia is a kitbash, yet?  It's the POTJ Bespin Escape Leia body plus vest and a different head.  The shoes or lack of boots are the giveaway.

The Tauntaun guts, if that's what they are, are a nice touch!

Tauntaun Guts

That's an odd accessory to add to something like this.  I'd rather see something more useful than guts.

I actually saw the Imperial 4pack at my Toys R Us over the weekend.  I could not believe something new was there for once.  First time in months I think.  Anyway, I really want the Hoth 4pack for the Tauntaun open belly and also the guts!!! Yay...guts !!!  :)  

Oh yeah, I like the droid as well.

I can't wait to get the Imperial Forces 4-Pack.  Another astromech.  YAY!

Now I'm wondering, though...are people going to do to this set what they did to the EPISODE I Naboo royal Starship?  People liked the astromech so much, they were cutting him out of the packaging.  Hope that doesn't happen this time around.
