Yep, I did list only 6... whoops.  I would still include Vader though, because he's so damn popular.

Ok, figure #7 - Deck Officer.

I'd have bought that. An exclusive full of army-building Imperials? It's like a license to print money.

I've always expected a "Cinema Scene" type of window-boxed Bounty Hunter display to come out at some point.  But I must admit that I'm a little disappointed on the execution of this one.

I'd just prefer that it look nearly identical to what we saw on screen in ESB, with the 6 BHs on the Star Destroyer bridge, with Vader yapping away at them (with no lightsaber drawn).  Rehashes or not, that would've looked pretty cool.

But hopefully this picture is just a mock up at this point, and they fix it up a bit more...

NO VADER! I'm sick of vaders and Lukes and Han's jammed into things.

Give us a good only set of Imperial Droids instead.

Mouse bot, the Protocol droid, and  the R2 unit.

oh baby!

I really like the idea.  Like what Matt and maybe some other said I think we had always assumed this would have been done allready in the past in someway.  Personally I was thinking of just having the Bounty Hunters only in the pack.  I never really thought to include Vader. 

I would have been more tempted had they made a new sculpt of 4-LOM and Zuckuess.  I don't really care for the yellowish highlights on 4-LOM.  The Zuckuss somehow looks a bit...clunky? 

All in all though if I really had some extra money I would buy this.  I think it looks kind of nifty to have all the bounty hunters in some kind of packaging.  In the end though I won't be buying this because I have all these figures and there are other holes in my collection to fill.

They could do some many more of these sets.

I bet that all or some figures will receive the new paint application like the OTC Tusken Raider and the OTC Jawas. (I hope :-\).

I think it'd be even cooler with a comm-chip of Piett and the crewman's exchange.
"Bounty hunters! We don't need that scum!"
"Yes, sir"

That's just me, though. I always got a kick out of that!

Whether we are going to buy it or not, has anyone heard an update on when it will be available?  I think a floor and backdrop from Vader's Star Detroyer would make or break this set, even if they are repacks/repaints...

Haven't heard a peep about this set since it was announced, Steve.  But yeah, a Star Destroyer bridge diorama/back drop would do wonders for this set, I bet.  I think some of the newer collectors may bite on it as well, just to pick up the 4-LOM, Zuckuss, and IG-88 Bounty Hunters that haven't been released in quite a while now...

Im kinda hoping this is a mock up pic. Like they initially did with the Wedge figure. New sculpts of 4-Lom and Zuckuss and an ESB deco VOTC Fett would seal the deal for me.
I remember my dream now.

If they're going to due new sculpts, I'd rather see them on cards...

Odds are we won't see any kind of diorama base - Hasbro would've called that out in the product description knowing more of us would buy it if that were the case.

I agree with JediMac - more of a scene recreation would've been cool (with Vader included - pointing at Fett)!

 :P

And to top it all off, they used the POTF2 Bossk - who isn't bad, but the Saga one is a tad better....
