    I'd interested in seeing GG do a jumbo version of one of the unproduced ROTJ 3-pack special offer sets.

    Rebel Set: Ackbar, Leia Boushh, Chief Chirpa
    Imperial Set: Biker Scout, Royal Guard, Bib Fortuna

    This villain set is a pass for me; I might be tempted if they ever do the Android set.

    That would be me too. Vader was the one high priced figure I needed to track down. Now I can get him for less and with 2 additional figures. I already have the Crazy Toys Stormtrooper KO but I won't mind having the official GG version.

    The last set wasn't comprised of popular characters. I suspect that this is an attempt to get more people collecting the line. Giving people another shot at getting Darth Vader and Stormtrooper is a good way to draw in new collectors. If this set does well maybe they might release the Han, Leia, Obi Wan pack and the C3-PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca pack. Then they could release a single carded brown hair farmboy Luke. I think that would go a long way to get some new costumers. I know, I'm just dreaming. But a man can dream, can't he?

    I don't think re-releasing characters is a good strategy for success in this line.

    If the figures were priced at $19.99 or below it would make sense.

    i think thats what they are attempting to do, do some 3 packs that have a popular mix of characters. I personally am not fond of this one they are offering. but if they started doing them with Hoth figures, even tho I already have some Hoth Jumbos, I would buy them again!

    Really stupid of them offering this extremely overpriced 3-pack when the first one didn't sell well at all. The only reason they should ever offer one of these is if there was an opportunity for a repaint/variant of some kind to include in it. Perfect example: a Heroes 3-pack with a BROWN haired Farmboy Luke.

    Yeah, I jumped on the first Jumbo 3 pack at 120 from Amazon last year. This one is a lot better seeing that 3 imperials in it.

    You would think that if there was a one yr lead time on preorders they could produce closer to what actual demand is and not worry about prices dropping after actual release of figures.

    The creature 3 pack would really interest me.
    Although I do own Greedo, it'd be good to have Hammerhead and Walrusman made available again.

    After looking at this Imperial 3 Pack I had half expected Darth Vader to be remade at the correct height.
    They seem to have dug their heels in re: Stormtrooper brow trim.

    No changes there.
    That paint app is still too thin.

    Bring on the creatures, please GGLTD.

    Is the Android Set: SAND PEOPLE, BOBA FETT + RED SNAGGLETOOTH, Kevin?

    I just did a Google image search, and it's headed as another Villain Set.
    Any clarification would be good - I'm a novice when it comes to triple packs.
    Thanks.

    For reference:

    Complete Set of Three Packs

    The "Android Set" is C3PO, R2D2, and um.... Chewbacca. Apparently Chewbacca is an android.
