The figures are identical, I have no need to have a set of 3-packs opened.

But the Clones aren't identical, are they Peter?  I was thinking I would need to get an opener of those, unless I'm mistaken...  No?

*sigh*

You're right Matt. The clone set does contain different figures than anything else we've seen so far.

Well crap.

I guess I am going to need to get two of at least the clone set.

Well - if it's any consolation, at our local WalMart stores the day the DVDs have come out, the past two sets were VERY easy to get.

The Clone Set was easier since there were only two, but with OT DVD set was odd 'cause some stores only received two different ones so it meant having to go to two stores to get all three.

Here's hoping the distribution is balanced and if you hit a WalMart at 7AM on November 1st there is a good number of all three (although, if they go heavy on the Clones, that would be smart)

Galactic Hunter has a preview up of the first of the DVD 3 packs, the one including Mace, Obi-Wan, and Anakin.  The figures that are said to be included are the Episode I Sneak Preview Mace Windu, the Battle Arenas Anakin Skywalker, and the Mustafar Playset Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Does anyone else think that the artwork for this set is better that the actual movie poster?

These POS sets showwed up here tonight. They were an easy pass for me. The figures look horrible. The packaging is OK but there is way to much white, they should of had some kind of insert in the tray. The clones are just the Deluxe Clone 3-pack with some random gold lines on them. And the paint app on Obi-Wan's face is terrible.

Aghhhh! I hate when stores break the release dates. All it takes is one scalper to figure it out and I've already heard two guys here say that they will grab every clone pack they see. >:(

Heyguys, were these sitting on the shelves in the toy aisle like normal figures or somewhere else? Its just odd that these didn't show up on the big DVD palettes like the previous 3-pack exclusives.

I'm sure what happened is when they got them in, the stockers, who can't read which is why they work at Wal Mart, couldn't figure out what they were for, so they put them in the toy isle.

It just sucks if they aren't arriving on those palettes. I was really looking forward to these not being an extra headache to track down, and now they may be.

Damn illiterates.

The ones I bought were put out on the SW island.

I still haven't decided on the clone trooper pack--I'm waiting to see just how lame they look in person before I make my decision.

Easy pass on the other two.

I opened the cases to find em. THey were sitting on palletes next to the DVD island though, so I assume that's where they go.
