I love this idea, but I would still be looking at no less than $300 to update my circa-2008 stormtrooper corps. More if it's an exclusive...

$41.99 is a great price!
They should really think about doing some more of these 3-4 packs in TVC instead of all these cheap cardbacks and repacks that are a waste of our time.
I get carded collectors like their nice images on cardback, but of late most just look like crap....

Yeah this is a great idea and long overdue. I'll buy a couple. As good as the RO sculpt is, I wish they had used the Stormtrooper from the CFC set so I won't be doing any serious army building with this one.

Would've preferred the TFU Stormtrooper Commander.

I just picked up another case of VC140s at EE for $104 shipped. So, not too bad as two of these 4-packs will end up being around $90 after tax, but I really, really want that Squad Leader.

This could have been a Special Action Figure set with 3 troopers... 2 different guns and one pauldron. Packaging seems a bit lazy on their part.

I'd like to think cheaper packaging equates to cheaper figures, which seems to be the case here. It's no different than how Marvel is issuing their cheaper army builders through Pulse, and how I'd expect inevitable TBS ones to arrive.

Like Hasbro announced, new products will be designed to removed unnecessary plastics - this set is a good start for the 3.75 range. Putting multiple army builders on cardbacks would be counterintuitive anyway, as they're designed to be opened for display. I'm not an army builder myself, but now that these have been announced, perhaps I'll be able find the basic release carded Stormtrooper that's been hoarded since day one, lol.

I'm a big imperial army builder and I'm stoked for this set being made. I have 40 (yes) VC140 Stormtroopers. I'm planning to pre ordering 10 tomorrow and probably 10 more in the future.

Hopefully the next Imperial focus troop builder 4 pack will be imperial officers. We haven't had a really good Imperial Officer mold since maybe Thrawn? Maybe Hasbro can mix and match parts to create a definitive version.

Not sure if I'll get this. I made an officer already using the 5 POA pauldron on a VC140 Stormtrooper and have enough of these. I dont even remember how I ended up with so many. Unless Shop Disney fixed it so Canadians dont have to pay duty, it's not worth it.

Grabbed two from Pulse, two from Disney. I love this! I definitely got a bunch of the Troop-Builder 4-Pack from the Saga line back in 2002 and am very happy this concept is finally making a comeback. Hopefully, there are many more troops to come.

So these are hanging around at Pulse and Shop Disney. Good. Glad everyone is able to get theirs.

I got 2 from Pulse right off the bat, but then added another 2 from Shop Disney.

re above, Patrick was very clear that is is not a one-off and they have big plans for more going forward. In his words, "we want to fill your shelves with troops."

The only downside is that by the time they get to the troops I want it will be too late.

Not sure why, but as discussed in the Disney forum, some people are getting free shipping on any-sized order from the Disney shop today. Just grabbed the new holiday droid and another one of these (I had already grabbed two from Pulse), which left me under the usual $75 limit, and still got free shipping. Just a heads up for those who haven't ordered any from there yet in case that's enticing.

Absolutely shambolic in the UK, Pulse sold out within minutes ( for non premium members) and Disney UK hasn't even got them listed !!!

Yet proceed with an exclusive release and limited quantity. ;)

I maxed on the order of 4 (2x2). I hope they can stick to their promise of army building. They do need to open it up to more online retailers with raised limits. Glad to see this OT focus on the playsets and hopefully continued army packs.

I ended up cancelling my Pulse order that included The Emperor to get free shipping and went with just one set with free shipping at Disney. I ended getting The Emperor from Amazon with free Prime shipping.
