I saw the Yoda Fighter earlier today but passed. I know it has the cool Droid Factory-inspired astromech dome on the wing but my supply of loose Droid Factory domes is extremely limited and I don't feel like paying $25 for a crappy Super Battle Droid repaint and a Yoda with Tom & Jerry cartoon eyes.

Passed today too. I wouldn't buy the Yoda set for $5.00. I think it stinks.

Worst in the wave. No competition.

I've bought three of the four, all but the Yoda Attack Fighter. That one is just....bad. The only redeeming factor is the Build-a-Droid feature for the astromech dome on Yoda's fighter but that one cool feature isn't enough reason to shell out $23.99. That Yoda's paint apps are sketchy if not awful and the Super Battle Droid is just a quick repaint that brings nothing new to the table.

I saw a few of the Yoda sets today and they all have corrected paint apps for his eyes.

Oh, they finally cranked out some corrected examples? That makes me feel a little bit better, but the Super Battle Droid is still an uninspired rehash of a mold we all have a hundred of already. I'll have to give this Fighter a lot more thought.

Thats good news, the original Yoda should never have been released like that. BTW, is this line finished as well - no mention at TF, right?

I'm not sure if there's been any official confirmation, but there were no other Deluxe figure and vehicle 2-packs on display in New York. Someone on another collecting site said they heard this line was being cancelled too.

Picked up the Yoda SF set today from Target ($19.99 vs TRU's $24.99), crappy eyes Yoda for me as well :?

Yeah, the ones I saw at TRU and Target today had the horrendous cartoon-like eyes. The sculpt of that Yoda is all-new and it's actually quite good....it's a shame a laughable paint job torpedoes him.

I think the first run of these sets had paint issue and I've run into several sets now with "normal" eyes. If you can hold out, I suggest waiting til the next restock of the line to get a good one.

I will give Hasbro credit for sculpting and tooling an all-new Yoda from the feet up to put in this new set. They could just have easily if not moreso stuck an older figure from a few years ago in the box, called it a day and then plugged their fingers in their ears so they couldn't hear the catcalls.

If the eyes on the next shipments look good and somewhat normal for a Yoda I'll certainly reconsider picking him up.

I've seen at least a dozen Yoda sets now... all have really funky eyes. I don't think I'd get it even if the eyes looked right though. This set just doesn't appeal to me.

It is the weakest and least interesting of the four new sets. Even with a corrected paint job on Yoda I'm going to have to give it some serious thought.

That Super Battle Droid could stand to look a lot better, too.
