NOPE....his name is now DIO. At least in my universe :). Thanks for the info!
Hey shishard, where are you in tn? I'm down in fayetteville. :)

Btw, want this set very much. They also need to produce the beast for Dio. Haha. I imagine they will since they've produced others with short screen time.

two words:

Tion Medon

Why you ask? He was a Sneak Peak figure and then we got another figure of this obscure alien when?
Oh yeah... we didn't.

These are a must buy based on that alone.

What bugs me with this set is how detailed Teedo's head sculpt/paint are and then there is nearly no detail to the rest of him. Still, I'll be buying this set day one for the heads and for BB8

I agree, I don't think they'll show up again either which is why I am on the fence with these as opposed to Finn or Rey who I feel have a shot at being in an SA line someday hopefully. There was one of Tion's soldiers released around the same time so we did technically get two unless you count the Inquisitor.

I hope to buy this as well, only for BB-8. This will be my only purchase along with 6" figures of Rey, Finn, Kylo and Stormie.

I have no plans at all on buying that terrible Falcon, so I guess that means this is the only other way to get him. Bad form on Hasbro's part to not make him available in some other packs as well. Between this one and the Ashoka and Vader two pack, They will probably sell out very fast. Hopefully I can beat the crowd and get my hands on both.

I'd rather get this than an $8 single packed BB-8 or that $130 Falcon. Plus I like these funky Jakku designs. I might even get that Constable and Plank figures. I don't need SA for those.

Love this set and the character designs. The thug is probably the little guy lol
I would think the little guy is the scavenger and the thug is the guy with the weapons. it seems like a lot of the alien characters or at least the ones we are getting figures of are either masked or have most of their faces covered up in some way.

No - thinking since we haven't seen any carded pics or eBay leaks that this is coming out later on.

Nope. Doesn't seem like 2 packs were a part of force fridsy. Several people were upset.

Disappointed that this wasn't one of the initial offerings, as my 5 year-old daughter really, really wants me to get her "the snowman droid." I did get the 6" Rey & BB-8, but it's unfortunate that there was no 3.75" scale BB-8 available on day one. Hasbro could actually have put that tiny droid on its own card at full price and it still would have been one of the first figures to sell out. Not saying that they should do that.

It sucks because this was being marketed on the Force Friday brochure as if it was going to be out at midnight. This, along with the Ahsoka and Vader 2 pack, was one of the things I was most excited for. Turns out both of them were left out of the midnight launches, I went to multiple Targets, Walmarts, and Toys R' Us's to get them and lo and behold, they were no where in sight.

I highly doubt this will become the next "Chopper." Plus, given that its the "Mission Series," I'd expect to see a (slightly) better BB-8 in the upcoming Walmart exclusive Black Series line at some point within the next few months. So as much as I really want BB-8 and these cool scavengers, I'm not too worried about this set.

I'm not getting excited about BB8 until I see the film. Remember how excited everyone was about Jar Jar Binks before TPM came out? Everyone was saying he was going to be the next Chewbacca. Instead, he was the next Mike Dukakis.

Nope. That's why I bought the set of 3 they were offering for $49.99 with 1x BB-8/Jakku Dudes, 1x Ahsoka/Vader, and 1x R2/3PO. The BB-8 and Ahsoka packs were the only 2 definite pickups I even had on my FF checklist, and I had the red-armed 3PO pack on the very bottom of my list as a "maybe" depending on how the paint apps turned out, but seeing as how it was already grouped in with the other 2 sets, I just bit the bullet and ordered.

Last time I checked though, Dorkside DOES have a preorder listing for individual Ahsoka/Vader packs, but even after multiple page refreshes, every time I tried to click Add To Cart, a window popped up saying "Pre-Sold Out." Very strange, as usually when something pre-sells out or goes OOS on their site, the listing for that item just disappears. Not sure why this one's still lingering on their Rebels product page.

I normally wouldn't mind the 5POA. What bothers me is how they split the skirts in the middle and made them part of the legs. Is it really that much more expensive to have the little extra plastic to act as proper skirts?
But if you do that, then you end up with salt-shaker figures that can't move their legs at all.

I noticed this pack was on the back of the box of Rey and her speeder. Unfortunately still no sign of this or Ahsoka, though I guess they come out next month. :p
