We haven't heard officially what's in this box set yet, but it's now up for pre-order at Entertainment Earth. #sponsoredlink

I doubt anyone is going to actually pre-order this as the TFA Maz Castle set and the Rogue One Jedha box sets both saw deep discounts, but if you want to the link is there. :P

I'm really hoping this box set turns out to be like the Rogue One set (3 new, 1 repack) and not the TFA set (3 repack, 1 new).  The optimist in me is hoping for the 3 new/1 old, but it seems kind of hard to find a spot in the film where you could grab enough unmade characters.  It's much easier to imagine Hasbro going the 3 old/1 new route for this 4-figure box set:

Ahch-To: Exile Luke, Island Rey, Chewbacca/porg and Caretaker (new)
Supremacy: Snoke, Kylo, Rey, and Praetorian (new weapon)
Raddus: Leia, Poe, BB-8, and Holdo (new)
Canto: Rose, Finn, DJ, and Alien (new)
Slicing Mission: Imp disguise Rose, Imp disguise Finn, BB-8, and Imp disguise DJ (new)
Crait: Rey, Kylo, Poe, and Luke (new)

It'll be the same as TFA Maz set but Maz will now have a jet pack.

Admiral Ackbar, Nien Nunb, Deleted Character  and some troop builder that won't be offered anywhere else or ever again.

Or
It's just some darts and a dart board with Rian Johnson's picture on it.

I really hope it goes the RO route also, but the lack of info about it has me concerned. Hasbro touted the RO one very early. So either there's a figure they consider to be a spoiler in there, or it's a bummer.

Hedging my bets:

Rey (Jedi Training)
Kylo Ren
Praetorian Guard (variant)
Luke (Crait)

I know this has been in the pipeline for a little while.  And I saw this description on EE's listing:

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Home Entertainment Action Figures:
Includes 4 unique 3 3/4-inch action figures. Details regarding this item are yet to come.


Based on the previous 4-pack releases, I'm not holding my breath that this set will have 4 all-new or "UNIQUE" figures.  The R1 set was decent in that it gave us three all-new figures.

In the words of the Zen master, "We'll see..."

Considering Yakface's update on the name of the pack - The Battle of Crait - I feel stronger about Luke. Also I wonder if there's an opportunity here for a AT-M6 Driver, even though we didn't see him in the movie.

"Battle of Crait", huh?

It's reasonably open-ended.  Especially since we got 3 x new figures in the R1 set.  My guess?

-Kylo Ren
-Luke Skywalker (Force apparition)
-AT-M6 driver
-Finn (ski-speeder pilot)

Uh...  not what I was hoping for at all.

Salty-Boots Rey
Crait Poncho Rose
First Order Gunner
First Order Snowtrooper (some kind of Driver repaint?)

I'm not surprised by the inclusion of Rey.  And I'm okay with the rest of the figures, too.  It's new enough for me to not be grousing over buying it. 

As for other characters that could have been included?  Truth be told, I'd rather get Force projection Luke Skywalker as a TVC line figure.

I know repacks and repaints help the costs, blah blah blah but it just feels lazy.

I guess we'll see how much of the gunner is actually new (could be just the head), but I was hoping for something more than two repaints, a new poncho for a repack and one new figure.

I guess I would have rather had one of the Rebel grunts from the trenches or Connix instead of Rose.

The Gunner looks like a completely new figure to me.  I'm not crazy about the rest of it.  The paint scheme on the Snowtrooper looks consistent with a trooper that LEGO had with their AT-M6.  But I'm also mindful of what came in the TFA and ROGUE ONE sets.  I'm more interested to see what else rolls out with the TVC line

Maybe my memory is failing me, but I don't recall Rose wearing a poncho...

I think it might be from when she was piloting the Ski Speeder.

Is this exclusive or does "home entertainment" just mean it's for the blu-ray release?

It's going to be at wider retail, and should coincide roughly with the BluRay release.
