Are you looking for just the ship? If so, I may be able to help as I'm not planning on keeping the ships, just the figures.
Thanks. It looks like there are two Millennium Falcon models in this seies. I like the look of the set above. I wonder what the other set looks like.

I picked up 4 sets of these from Meijer today.
Two of the Millennium Falcon 8 packs and two of the Sith Infiltrator 8 packs
$9.99 each set. Worked out to $1.25 per figure. (less if you factor in the vehicle)
Each set has 2 figures exclusive to that set. Both visable on the right side.
Maul/Qui Gon and C3PO/Chewbacca
The exclusives are in form fitted spaces. The rest of the figures are in loose square holes. They can move around/flip over.
All the other figures appear to be randomly packed
My two sets of each had a couple duplicates, but not two bad.
The hidden figs are in the vehicle pod.
Probably 75% of my figs were from the OT
There is a check sheet with pics of the first 48
I typed it up below, with a one or two word description

This is going to suck. I just want the ROTS style Clone Trooper but I can't afford to be buying a ton of these just to get the ones I want. :eek:/

The carded sets will have all but one figure visible. So you can pick and choose which sets to buy. Only one fig in each set is hidden. That figure is random.

The blind 2 packs will be another issue.

These look like another gimmick, like the SW Beanz which now sit unwanted in clearance isles.

But I'd pick up Boba Fett if I happen across him.

They had a couple sets at my Meijer, but none of the figures I wanted so I passed. No sign of them at Toys R Us.

So where are these located in the stores? Are they in the kids aisle or what? Are these showing up in America, yet?

They were in the action figure aisle, right next to the figures.
I think that Hasbro tends to keep all it's stuff together.

Picked up the same two sets at meijer today as well-- at least with the SIth Infiltrator set-- you can see what the "hidden" character is through the holes in the top... I dont like that 6 of them are random-- but between the four sets I saw- I was able to pick up all the different figures with 2 sets (although they were in different combinations)

Also at least the "hidden" character looks to just be a common random packin as well-- so I think you will be able to at least know what ones you are missing and try to get the most per multipack (which is much better than Mighty Beanz)

So, the "hidden figure" is just a common? Are they ones that appear in other sets that are visible? For a second there, it seemed like the hidden figures were something special.

That's mostly good, if true, since only one of the figures will be blind packaged you won't be stuck buying a whole set just to try and get a rare figure.

I don't think that there are any "rare" figures. Just the common and the exclusives.
The paper insert that shows all the figures, labeles the exclusives as exclusives, but doesn't say anything about "rare" or "uncommon" figures.
I think that you just get a "suprise" figure in each set, or a couple suprise figures in the blind two-packs.

My TRU stocked the four packs today. I picked up two. I have Boba Fett, Bossk, Lando, Han in Carbonite, Cody, Clone Pilot, Jango and Kitt Fisto. They are soft and rubbery, but harder, sharper, and better painted than "squinkeys" and their knockoffs. Pretty neat little toys, hope they become popular. Definitely still need a Vader, Chewie, R2, Yoda, Stormtroopers...

I agree with this. At first I thought the little numbers next to the figures were the odds of finding them because it says 1-34, 1-45, or whatever but then realized they were just their individual numbers in the list.....just not displayed in order for whatever reason. So nothing really rare but still quite fun..a little expensive but fun.

I still haven't been able to find these, except for two packs (without the characters I wanted) at Meijer a while back. It's getting a little annoying. TRU online is having a buy one get one 50% off sale on all Star Wars toys today, and the Fighter Pods are included, but their prices are higher to begin with and there's no way to know which figures you'd get buying online.

I have only seen the 8 packs at Meijer twice, and the 16 packs at Target today.
Haven't seen two packs at all. Are there 4 packs as well?

But I've kind of gotten lucky. Out of the sets I've bought, I only need 2 more regular figures and 10 exclusives, with very few duplicates.
I did end up with doubles of the maul/qui gon and chewy/3po from the 8 packs because I bought 2 of each set, to verify that the hidden figs were random.

I really like these little guys. If they put them in gumball machines for 50 cents each, they'd sell like crazy, with little to no packaging cost.

I do wish they were made of hard plastic though. I don't think this soft material will hold up over the years.

Found these at TRUs in their large front store section of SW items. I wasn't as impressed seeing them in person, so I passed. Maybe if they hit a sale or I find a pack that is made up of all figures that I want, I might go for them.
