Intersting.  I hope that cardboard is pretty sturdy, but it reminds me of the old Sears Bespin set back in vintage.

This set reminded me of the vintage "Land of the Jawas" playset for some reason.  Seeing those footpegs on the side of the Conveyex was an interesting touch.  And this set makes me want Hasbro to make the Viper droids from SOLO as soon as they can.

The interesting part to me?  The back of this set.  It's one thing for the front of this set to be a setting for the Conveyex heist.  But the back is the path and gate to the shipyard?  Nice!

These are definitely interesting, but I can already guess the playset crowd will be complaining.  They make a nice simple display though for your collection.  I like 'em.

This would be a cheaper way of getting a Carbon Freeze Chamber or Emperorís Throne Room

You know what?  Let them.

This is cool for displaying some of the SOLO 3.75" figures.  Especially considering the price point.

Plenty of 3rd parties are offering some interesting stuff now at varying price and detail points.  Maybe that has actually lit a fire under Hasbro's ass?  Who knows.  But this is a positive step forward.

Neat idea. Not sure that Iím sold on this, but the Kessel one is neat. Hope to see more, particularly OT stuff.

There were two plastic and cardboard playsets shown at the Hasbro event.  One Walmart and one Target.  One is Vandor1 and one is Kessel.  I forget who got which but I know I want the Kessel one more myself.

Ok. I was just thinking this could not be on a new planogram after just being announced.

So much for it being $40, like they said at the Hasbro panel.

Yes, that spot is probably for this Vandor playset (I suppose you could double-check the dpci to be sure).  The $45 price is what Jayson's original DPCI report had listed.

Not sure why using Jayson's list didn't cross my mind. I'll check tomorrow.
