Great set if you don't have any of those.  Decent value, too, I guess.  I got my Bantha for $15 back in the day so I'll be passing.

It's not a horrible value really.  The Bantha plus three figures?  One Tusken with presumably articulated knees and what looks to be the VOTC cloak.  The price is still steep, but at least they tucked more figures in.  Since I have two I'll only be after this if it hits clearance.

Yeah I'm debating on this one too now that photos arrived.  The Bantha got a haircut and redeco it seems...  I have 3 Banthas though.  Tuskens are cool but we've also all got lots of those I figure.  I could handle another one but only if I've got no other expenses to consider that month as far as collecting goes.

It's not a bad value. Considering everything is a repack, one would think it could be sold for a lower price point like the Target BP's.

Nice to see that there is at least something more than the Bantha in there, which helps the price not sting quite as bad.  Like I said, I missed the POTF2 version, so I'll be picking this one up if I can find it.  Hopefully it looks as good as the initial one did.

I agree Anthony, there's no tooling costs in this so the figures should be pretty cheap really.  And it could be a lower pricepoint, but I think at least they realized they should throw something in there to help justify the price.  Mommy, baby (is it in there?), daddy and the puppy offset a little.  And hey, maybe that's a VOTC Tusken with knees on the Bantha.  Yeah, me neither.

Is that supposed to be a deceased Shmi in the baggy?

So that's what they did with all those Shmi figures that suddenly disappeared from my TRUs.  Go figure.

It's a very cool set considering it's a box of rehashes, but not worth $45 right now.  I have the figures and the Bantha, so really there's no point in buying it again...even though it looks pretty in the box.

Yeah, I suppose it's a "good value" with the extra Tuskens.  Unfortunately, the Bantha itself looks like **** with that curly hair.  >:(

I'll agree it doesn't look as good as the first but the fact that the hair doesn't cover the eye and it looks a big black hole is what makes it look like ****.  It really sticks out like a sore thumb.

Maybe it'll include a couple VTSC Tusken Raiders or a momma with runt Tusken.

Looks like I was close on the pack-in dept.

Mommy, baby (is it in there?)

Yep, you can see the little tike over momma's shoulder

I like it, 3 figures makes it worth it. The curly hair looks retarded though.
