I already have Durge, AV, and GG, but none of the other three (note that it's the original un-battle-damaged Anakin, which I didn't buy the first time and was hoping for a repack).

So I'll definitely get Set 1 if I can find it.

Now all we need is a set that repacks Yoda and Dooku....

Call me a thankful cynic/pessimist, but I'm just happy that Hasbro didnt' decide to release the ARC Trooper in the three pack as a blue version rather than the red version that's already on individual cards.  Then I would be pissed off.  :)

The OT DVD packs blew out pretty quickly around here as well, which kind of surprised me.  ANH tended to sit for the longest, believe it or not, and (in a total "duh" moment) the ROTJ pack went the fastest.  There were actually quite a few people who bought a three pack of figures at the midnight launch of the DVDs, and they weren't people you'd usually see cruising the action figure aisle either (based on overhearing several of them talk about how cool the Emperor figure looked, which we all know is just crazy talk).

I'm still baffled that Hasbro did not include Yoda in the mass market rerelease of the Clone Wars stuff, three packs or individually carded.  I mean, is Durge even still around in any of the EU stuff?  I find it hard to believe that Durge would sell more toys than Yoda would.

Have these been confirmed to a store yet? I'm assuming Target will get them again.

Yep, Durge is still around, as recently as the comic miniseries Obession which is currently on its 3rd of 5 issues. But I fully agree that they should have rereleased Yoda too.

Hey Question are these things coming out in the US or did we just get em in Australia earlier than you guys?
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Sorry Hemish, but could you elaborate a bit?  Are you referring to the EE 4-pks, the Clone War 3-pks, or some sort of ROTS Clone 3-pk?  Or something else?   :)

I merged it into our DVD thread here for ya' Hemish!   ;)

I'm very interested in knowing the answer to this question as well, as I intend on getting these, and need to know if they're NOT coming to the U.S. eventually...

Took the words out of my mouth. Or, y'know, off of my keyboard, or whatever....

Anyway, I'm passing on Obi-Wan and the ARC because, as I mentioned a few posts above, I'm waiting for the repack sets so I can get the first Anakin as well. With my luck, we won't know for sure that they're not coming until after the singles have left stores.  ::)

According to Hasbro, today is the day to hit Wal-Mart to grab these if you want them...

They should be shelved along with the DVD today (or last night if you have a 24HR Wal-Mart  :P).

Stopped at Wal-Mart for a few things before work, and to pick up the Clone Wars DVD, and they did have the 3 packs in the front DVD display dealy.  I didn't pick any up, but they were the same price ($9.96) as the OT DVD figure packs were.

I hit three WalMarts this morning - NONE of them had the DVD three-packs for the Animated Clone Wars figures.  >:(

This is exactly like I figured would happen - the WalMarts are so god-damn gun-shy about putting ANYTHING out that is Star Wars they are holding them back for April 2nd!

Now, how the hell am I going to be at Target and WalMart at the same time?!?!?!

*VERY* angry....

I'm not holding my breath, since I haven't seen the regularly carded figures up here.  Buy who knows, these are supposed to be a Wal-Mart exclusive, and the OT ones showed up here...

You aren't kidding.  All of this snowing, then melting, then freezing, then blowing... It's ugly.
