    Endor Ambush 4-pack - Worst set ever?

    GH recently added preview pics of the Endor Ambush 4-pack - and frankly...this is the lowest thing Hasbro's done in this series. Not a single item is actually new or modified to be different.

    Even the Jedi 4-pack had a never before released item...and the Carkoon set has a unique (for the most part) Han figure.

    Things that would've made this better?

    -Used the Saga/CW Clone bike as a base for the Imperial bike instead of the '95 mold.
    -Upped the detail on the Biker Scout
    -Used POTJ Bespin Han for the Endor Han. (Just take away the long jacket, add a new trench and repaint the arms?)
    -At least made the Endor Soldier different looking in some way...
    -The Ewoks are kind of fine actually since we haven't had Logray available in awhile, but even then that's not helping it much..

    I can understand rereleasing old figs on cards...but this is just frickin lazy.

    I kind of dig it. To me it looks good. They could of added a new Ewok, or put Paploo in it,since Wicket will be on the OTC cards but for the most part it looks real good. I really like the bike and the scout.

    No, I don't think it's the "worst" set ever.

    I agree, something (anything) new would have been better, but it's not a bad group of toys. In my mind the Carkoon set is worse because of that Han figure. Honestly, I don't have any of these Endor figures loose right now -- gave some to my kid, never bought the Endor soldier at all -- so, I'll grab this set.

    Like the new box style a lot also!

    I don't think. I won't even get the Carkoon set for my kids. This would be a great Christmas present for my son...he loves his Playskool endor set.

    I agree that a new Han Endor would've been nice. But I think these sets are all geared toward new collectors & kids who never had an interest or chance to get these before.

    While yes, it would have been nice if they just repainted Logray or wicket for a generic ewok, this set still does give us two army builders.
    I like this set because of the speeder bike, I can always use a few more.

    Wow from a distance it looks great, just like a Monet painting. Yes it's bad, but looks cool in the OTC packaging. Once you find out that the bike and Scout are the POTF2 versions you kind of loose interest. Did we all expect Hasbro to make SA Scout for this set? That's what I thought. To me it's better than the last set, but that's not really saying to much. Great gift for kids though!

    I have plenty of these figures, and then some. This isn't a very impressive set, I like the idea of Han (Bespin Capture) with a new coat, that would have rocked!

    However, I still think the Carkoon set is the worst.
    May the force be with you.

    This is crap! At least the other sets had something new to offer. Maybe if they had a new Han, the beardless soldier, and repainted the Ewoks to make new ones, I would think of buying this set, but it's just bad.

    I look at it like the rest of the repacked figure in the OTC line. The packing is nice but its nothing to get excited about. The only way this is better than the carkoon set for me is there is nothing new to make me want one to open.
    More is more. Less is less, Twice as much is good too,
    Too much is never enough except when it's just about right.

    I'd say it's a good deal if you don't have those figures already.... but pretty much anyone that wanted any of these figures wouldn't have had any poblem finding them at retail way back when. They were all pretty common.

    Hell, you could probably get all these figures off ebay for a cheaper price than this crap-pack. It's pretty sad that they couldn't even modify any of the figures just a little bit. I have no desire for this one, but that doesn't suprise me. The 4 packs have consitantly sucked after the Rebel Hoth one.
