Saw these this week too, at Wal-Mart... the movie sets are really bad. I expect them to pegwarm, but the CW set with three army builders might do ok.

Oh, the Clones set will definitely do much better than the other two...that's for certain. I won't be getting it, but it's the only one of the three that even LOOKS partially interesting to anyone who's into this hobby. :wink:

This pack defines the reason for pegwarmers.

Can't argue much with you on that one. :wink:

There are a few MH figs I want, but not many...that's for sure.

Yeah. I think this line is geared more for kids. Kind of a shame, though, that they replaced a collector/kid friendly SL with a kid-only MH.

Once I get my Battle Droid, Podracer Anakin, Padme and a couple of others I'm done with the Movie Heroes line. Let the kids have them. 99% of my focus is going to be on Vintage and Discover the Force characters.

Same here - the clones were gone and the movie stuff was left to warm the shelves. I'm not a fan of the new BP look either. To be honest, I wish they'd even stop the repaints and just stick to repacks so its kids only, otherwise - I dont mind seeing the line go.

If they'd have used the 2010 Legacy Collection AOTC Obi-Wan and a more recent Jango Fett that pack would be a lot more attractive. As it stands though, it's the laziest, stupidest Battle Pack I've seen in years.
