Not sure how I feel about these. I collect 6", but for $30 each you're darn right I open them. I'm not really excited about vintage carded 6" figures, especially since they're pretty much all just repacks. I'm not gonna drop the cash to display these in package. The only figures I would (and did) do that for was TVC. I'll probably just pick up the Death Squad Commander, Jawa, maybe Vader, and possibly Leia again for the corrected head sculpt.
I found some chocolate eggs with Star Wars "toys" inside at the local co-op gas station. They're not kinder eggs though, they're by a company out of Italy called Zaini. http://www.zainispa.it/STARWARS/ So far I've only gotten 2 erasers and from that link it looks like there's 36 different toys/figures to collect. Kinder's toys were way better and even those weren't too amazing, so piecing together a full set of these will be a task I'll leave to someone else! Thought I'd report it anyways though, especially since this, like kinder eggs, can't be sold in the USA.

Now that Christmas is over what is everyone seeing for peg warmers. I was at TRU yesterday and they had a ton of 6" Hovertank and Snowtroopers. At Walmarts I am typically seeing 3.75" BS Finn, Leia, Phasma, Han. Overall there are quite a few figures of all kinds on the pegs and I am worried nothing new will new coming out until all the old stuff is gone.
