So since this is an AOTC set, is that a captured/dead Shmi in the baggy or are those supplies or something??  It sure looks like a body to me.

A little too small to be a body.  It's probably womprat roadkill.

I'm still on the fence on getting this one.  I don't have a Bantha, but the question for me is where would I display it.  I've got some space issues, and I can't see myself spending $45 and then putting it away.  Does the BP come with a brush or something for the hair - it's all over the place  :).

I might have bough this if they had repainted all of the Tuskens to match.  As it is, they are all very different versions of tan, and it's obvious that they are from different years.  My old one is fine.

It was on the original POTF2 toy, so it obviously isn't Shmi. There's really no reason to assume it's a body at all.

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

So... then you don't like it?

My boxed Bantha has been in storage for a few years, so I'm hoping they lay it out on the AOTC packaging that there's actually a dead women hanging in the baggy  ;)  I'm being thoughtful/morbid

I was always under the impression that those bags were filled with water.  But dead former slaves?  That would smell worse than the banthas.  ::)

I already have the old one, so i dont really need this one. If it goes on clearance i may pick it up just for the "body bag"  ;D

The only reason I would want this is for my Diorama.The bantha looks like it had a soft curl perm that went haywire and I always can use some extra Tuskens.I don't know about this ::)

Shmi did not die until Anakin showed up.

Why would she be dead, and in a bag?
