2015 ESB Digital Release 4-Pack re-issued
« on: October 6, 2020, 07:58 PM »
I'm sure there's a thread for these somewhere, but I'll post here. What did I miss? Why is Target selling the 2014 ESB four pack that came out at same time as blu rays?

For some unannounced reason, Hasbro decided to do a new production run of this set for the ESB 40th Anniversary.  Seems like an odd choice with most of these figures already in the "Celebrate the Saga" packs too.

But only $19.99

Yeah, the ESB set is from the 2015 Digital Release Commemorative Collection when LFL put out the movies digitally for home release.

Really strange decision to go back to the well on this set.  Especially when Hasbro was just recently saying stuff like  "Celebrate the Saga packs are your last chance to get these 5POA figures before they go to the vault" and then they turn around and redo this set of 5POA unannounced too?  Odd.

I saw this set in Target a couple of days ago and I was totally surprised to see it.  But I guess Hasbro’s trying to circulate it before the 5POA figures “go into the vault”.

Okay, I do remember that set, I just had no idea it was showing up again.  Safe to assume there's nothing new or drastically repainted in it?
