This set appears to contain Darth Vader and EP1 Anakin. Picture

Why are all of these Ep1 threads being posted in the TVC section? Shouldn't they be getting their own "Movie Heroes" section?

Are these packs the successors of the Saga Legends figures?

My thoughts exactly. Yes, some of it is coming on TVC packaging, but this clearly isn't based on the image.

Seems like it should have its own section.

This set looks a bit poopy. I hope for it's sake the presence of a Vader fig will move it off the shelf.

If they would have tried with an all new peasant Anakin, I'd have bought it.
Unfortunately these 2-pks are too expensive when it consist of repacks of both figures!

Another waste. Didn't they have this pack a year or so back, Vader Evolutions 2 pack?

Because we don't have any other section for these figures as of the moment :)

As for the figures, Anakin is nearly as big as Vader :p

They really should have tried recreating the iconic Episode 1 Teaser poster with a Tatooine background on the card.

What a missed opportunity. I might have bought it just for that.

True story: My nephews tried selling the Anakin being used in this pack for $0.25 at a garage sale last year. Not one kid in their neighborhood wanted it. Methinks Hasbro puts too much faith in this outdated figure.

The Saga collection version was based on the Special Edition 500th Figure Darth Vader in meditation chamber.

And it's amusing that is the 500th release of this version.

Isn't the 500th version the last one put out with swivel elbows before they switched to the ball joint?

A clearer carded shot can be found here. Interesting idea for a pack but nothing that grabs my attention and screams to buy it.

Okay, I was under the impression they were TRU, like those Anakin/Vader, Grievous/Grievous, Boba/Boba packs.

That's some exclusive, huh? Target probably feels like the kid in gym class who got picked last for Dodgeball.

As expected, these are piling up at my local Targets, I can see these going down to $4.50 or so.

It took almost another year and a half, but yeah, these are 4.50 now.

did it out of boredom

edit:

looked up what exact figures these were, returning them now

only Sidious looks worth keeping.

According to Hasbro Australia in late 2013, these are supposed to turn up at Myer.
It's almost at the end of January 2014 and I haven't seen hide nor hair of this set.
