I'm glad Hasbro didn't add in extra accessories. I hate seeing some new pieces added to straight repack figures, especially when the figures are relatively high priced to begin with.

Going forward this would be a cool format for repainted and retooled figures. A pair of Clone Officers or Mynock Hunt Han and Chewie would be pretty nice.

Funny how this (and the Endor set) has a nice backdrop/environment scene, but Jabba and the speeder bike are floating in a black void.

The rumored titles certainly line up

But the pricepoint seems off...could be the Euro pricing though vs actual US MSRP.  Although this is TRU so it could be $67 for two figures we already have and cardboard.

Jesse James:
Would people be willing to drop $60-$70, even if they didn't own the figs already, just because they had a plastic table and chairs?

Bear in mind this same group the question is being asked is the same group that hates anything $30 or more seemingly regardless of what it is due to that being the weird threshold financially that people hit.

4" stuff like that's unrealistic so 6" seems even more so.  It's a nice way to display it to sell it but they should've launched both figures like this or tried at least a variation of Greedo with a blast wound somehow.

I wonder if when Hasbro planned this they were thinking 'these early Black Series figures will be scarce when fall 2014 comes around.' Ah, no. If it's anything other than that, I have no idea what the idea is here.
