    Okay, so even though I'm broke I bought the new Target Exclusive SW Unleashed General Grievous in the larger cylinder box for $20, similar to the Best Buy Exclusive SW Unleashed Darth Vader that came in the same type of cylinder last year. I was wondering, how new is the Grievous? Is the Vader still going for good money? Are there more Unleashed figs coming in this kind of packaging? It looks like they'll put Boba Fett in thiis packaging, as his fig is on the back of the packaging for Grievous. Unfortunately, it's the one of him trying to fly out of the (Sarlacc?) pit. Not the most glorious moment for ole Boba. I would love to see the Yoda again in this kind of packaging too, although I already have one that I took out of the packaging from the old version.

    Boba Fett (reissue from the original version) is currenlty out and I think they been out for about 2 weeks. Grevious is a reissue, the same version from last years Revenge of the Sith.

    I think there is talk about reissuing some of the "best sellers of the 7" unleashed line.

    Yoda was mention I think. I'll have to look for the article again.

    Unfortunately they are a little pricey compared to the originals (which were $14.99).

    But thats better than what those 2 figures go for on ebay. So I would say this is a good rehash for some... like myself.

    2 favorite characters, available in one of the coolest lines that Star Wars has.

    The next issues will be Luke and Vader. Most likely Target exclusives once again.

    The tube packaging is HUGE. I have no idea how people can store these guys.

    Whoa, those look so much cooler in the cylinder/tube packaging. But yeah, where the hell would I put all these? I'm out of space already. Oh and broke.:(

    Not to mention the more displayable new packaging somehow adds $5 to the retail cost of it.

    That Vader looks sharp though. Too bad I'm past getting Star wars stuff.

    I have the Shocktrooper and plan on picking up the new releases... though I wouldn't mind if they did drop the price back to normal :(

    Aren't the newer versions of the figures larger than the original peices? That's why I thought that they cost more.
