Hell, that's almost worth it for the box art alone. I think I'd like to see art packaging like this instead of the enhanced product images we get now. Image

I'm glad it's not something super-rare I can't get at the store (or already own). That's what LEGO should be producing under the name "Battle Pack". Just rename the current ones "Troop Packs" and you're good to go Image

I wonder if there is any possibility they could be using these as a sort of test release for perhaps something else in this vein for the future...

That's cool! I love the packaging.

As Deino said, I'm glad it is not really an exclusive and I already own the sets. I'm just missing out on the cool packaging.

Oh i agree the box art is superb and alot better than the usual stuff we get, i wonder why lego never gives us boxes like that.

If they did i think i would be more careful with them :D

For those prices i'll pass, just not worth it.

Perhaps i might try to snag an empty box at some point instead.

Its a freaking amazing army building set thats for sure.

I still don't understand the price tag. Add all sets, add a couple of figs and you are still far from 75$ :roll:
I wonder if in the future TLC shall consider to do a general release of big sets like that with gazillion MFs, we can surely hope ;)

Yeay that box art is freaking awsome :shock: Look at Rex's pose, thats so cool.

Lets wait in january and lets all go crazy :mrgreen:

Notice how it says 'Includes Clone Battle Pack' under the 'Includes Droids Battle Pack and Hailfire Droid with Spider Droid'. CW CBP? :o

Wow, this looks amazing!

The box art is superb, and if my eyes don't fail me those are the new Phase 1 clones there are they not?
And as mentioned it says something about a Clone Wars BP and I read the word *new* there as well! It would be sooo great if we got a nice Phase 1 BP soon!
100$ you say? That's insane for what's in the set, but well, it's an exclusive. If TLC ever were to produce sets like this that would be awesome! Just imagine a Endor pack like that. With an AT-ST and loads of Rebels/Ewoks and Stormies! Or Hoth.... Wow, one can dream :D

Well, at least, in a small way, Lego listened... Rex is the star of that Minifig pack, and he's 501st.... Wish the thing wasn't so gall darn exspensive though...
