Actually he only compares the difference in the figures between the 2 sets. The Bantha and Massif are the same in each box (hence, no variant) so that's why they weren't included in the comparo.

Wasn't there a lot of rust red is the Jundland terrain of Ep II? Maybe they went with that influence?

I think in a Q&A they described it as a different clan...  So, more or less, these are expanded universe.

Neat idea but the price has ruled out me picking up a set.  On sale I'd consider it for the Bantha but the figures mean nothing to me save for the VTSC Sandie...  Banthas rock, but they rock harder at $20 a pop with a neat figure.

Nothing on the Bantha, so I'll assume that thing's identical to it's POTF2 release.

     Wha...? The banthas clearly have different fur from the POTF release.

Whoops!  I mispoke there.  Yeah, I recall seeing the differences in fur from the POTF2 release.  I meant to type that both the tan and red sets have identical Banthas, which seems to indeed be the case.  Good deal.  It looks like I should be able to get by with just one (red) opener, and one (tan) boxed set, thank God.  Now I just have to find the damned things...

I noticed the Massif is a lot softer and gummier than the one I have from the carded Saga release. :-\

I may have to take that back. I was just messing with my old one, and he seems about as soft as this one. Must be the heat.

Well, I can't attest to an abundance, but the first time I went looking for a bantha, the only 3 my TRU had were red. I had to drive another 10 or 15 minutes to find the regular tan I wanted. There 17 in stock, but most were way up on the shelf. The 4 or 5 I got to see were tan.

I've seen equal amounts so far.

How many are in a case? I ask because the first time I saw these, all I saw was 2 Tan. Next time they hit, there were 4 Red and no Tan.

Have these gone on clearance anywhere? Anyone willing to pick up a red set if they see it?  ;D
