I bought it for $20, and think it's the best offering for RO when you look at pricepoint and the product you're receiving. I would much rather have this set over a single 6 inch figure for example. Or compare this set to a single SA 3.75 figure at $13 - it's an easy choice for me. I honestly wish they'd do more sets like this, and less basic figures, which outside of the first two waves have been a pain to locate.
amen not every figure needs to be more than 5POA. even the old Admiral Ozzel, Capt. Antilles, General Dodonna with their limited articulation were fine.This set is a good buy at $25. 4 figures for $6.25 each? Even at 5POA this is a decent buy. I honestly don't know that we'll ever get another 'Two Tubes' figure. Saw... maybe... but probably not.
Pote Snitkin, Muftak, Beru, Shmi, there are tons of these figures that will be good enough. I'm not a fan of the 5POA, but I am in favor of good sculpts on new characters. I'll never buy another main character in 5POA, but background I can live with.
I’m not so sure that we’ll see this figure again. The Rogue One line is pretty much dead. Wave 4 is the last of the line and may never see the light of store shelves (heck, I can’t even find wave 3). With Episode 8 right around the corner I don’t think Hasbro has any secret Rogue One releases up their sleeve.I bet that tank driver mold gets re used at some point either a single card or HOPEFULLY A VEHICLE PACK IN AHEM NOT SUBTLE HINT HABSRAH!
Thanks all - I checked yesterday and didn't find them. Despite Brickseek telling me there were 8 in stock/4 saleable, the employee I spoke to said the set was online only, which obviously isn't true.
Yep, I bought mine from a separate cardboard stand in electronics - but I also saw them, the sabers, etc., that are also being sold in this group onan endcap a few rows down from the toy section at another Target (North Buffalo, NY). Do some hunting and you'll find them.These have been set up in a separate stand alone large black cardboard standup. Usually in the electronics section.
Yeah, even at $25 it's still a good deal. It contains a near perfect mix of characters too - a core hero, a trooper, an alien, and a cool secondary character. I dare say this might be a perfect battle pack. I hope we get something similar for TLJ.
Same here. It would make the sets more appealing for me, not to have to worry about doubling up on unwanted figures. Considering this is the only way to get two figures, this set is a must for some. Adding two repacks is slight deterrent. I know these are aimed at kids, but again these are characters most kids aren't after, right? As the age old controversy goes, kids only want the heroes. So all these side characters are taking a chance, and hope that the adult collectors pick up the slack.I think this format works well for Star Wars. I'd rather see them leave the core characters out of these packs, but I understand why they are there. I have 50 Darth Vaders because of this type of thing.
I want to see them make more of these 4 packs. Seems like it would have made more sense to make a few of these for both movies and cut back on the amount of waves they produced.Same here.

Thing is, with 5POA the customizing thing is non existent for me. So doubles are useless. If we were talking about the SA line than that parts could be usable somehow later on. Or could even be sold secondary market. But I don't see 5POA doing that well on ebay. Other than certain figures.
