Brickipedia says the set is supposed to have 9 minifigs, and I counted 9 without the Gonk Droid so I'm guessing no. The Gonk Droid looks terrible anyway compared to the previous version, IMHO.

It's an improvement, but she still needs new hair (That one is more like a male long hair).

It's actually $10 more expensive if I'm not mistaken.

Agreed- some nice army-building figures, but definitely not worth buying a $40/$50 set over. The two exclusive figures look pretty lackluster to me. I do like the mini Flash Speeder though!

I was wondering about that; a blinded face would be awesome!

I would love to see a blind Han. That head would have a few uses outside Han too. I really like the Gamorrean guard, but I picked up lots of early SW figures that keep getting remade - making me have to replace them all.

I don't really think there will be a 'blind' face - There was no difference in the film whilst Han was blind (no white eyes/black eyes/any other funny business with dodgy contact lenses), so I don't see (unintended pun) how TLG would do a blind face - apart from making him look a bit confused...

Planets: Definetly getting Bespin for Lobot alone. Not sure about the other 2 yet.
Skiff: Looks great, plus a redesigned Boba and Lando! This will go great with Jabba's Palace!
Republic Striker Starfighter: The set looks fantastic, and I'm thinking about getting SWTOR soon.
Saesee Tiin's Starfighter: Considering I'm not a giant CW fan, the set is passable. Obi Wan's Starfighter is good for me.
Gungan Sub: Looks amazing, especially Queen Amidala. The price is too steep though. Might have to get this one on sale.
Fury Class Interceptor: Same thoughts as RSS.
Advent Calender: This is great battle pack boosters, but Darth Maul looks less like Santa. I'll praise it for being movie oriented, but last years is better for minifigs.
Jabba's Palace: Easily the best of the bunch. It's just a shame it's incredibly over-priced. Another set to get on sale.
Malevolence: Again, not a CW fan, but the ship looks pretty cool. Only complaint is the really, really ugly Padme
Overall, the only sets I'm in a rush to get are Bespin, the Skiff, the Advent Calender (gotta get it before it's sold out), and TOR sets. Gungan Sub and Jabba's Palace can wait until there's a sale or coupons, and I'll get Malevolence if I have extra money.

Just the same with the pics of the UCS R2D2 - they surfaced here long before other sites.
C'mon guys - have a look around before you post (no offense meant).
