I'm just hoping it comes in some form of a window box as I was really expecting the Endor AT-AT to come in.  I think it would look fantastic with the arena back drop and a few of those spires with the beasts on prowl.  I'm sure I'll buy it regardless of the box - or the pack ins for that matter.

God, I hope you're right.  I've been wanting to pick up a loose Duros off of ebay for a while now but couldn't find the extra $2.34.

Well, based on the "back of the box" description, I fear it will be some combination of the following:

-Saga 2002 Acklay
-Saga 2002 Reek (with no electronics)
-Saga 2002 Nexu (with no electronics)
-Three Pillars from Geonosis Arena Playset
-2002 Saga Arena Padme
-2003 Saga Secret Ceremony Anakin with new arm
-2003 Saga Poggle the Lesser
-2003 Saga Obi-Wan Kenobi (Acklay Battle)
-2005 ROTS Mace Windu (just because he's packed with everything nowadays)

Bring on the suck!  :P

It's always nice to see how low expectations can be.  ;D

Seriously, I think there should be *SOMETHING* new in this set as we typically get something decent out of a Toys R Us exclusive.  I'm not sure what it's going to be in this instance, but the three Arena beasts are a given.

There were actually four poles in the arena:



(Although somehow there were five poles, after Natalie's midriff was exposed during her fight with the nexu.  )

All signs point to me passing on this, unless it comes with something like this -



Or a new, meaner looking Reek.

Five if you count Anakin's Jedi "Pole"  :-*

Nevermind that joke had been done... too eager I guess.  :-[

   I'm probably going to get this set, as the Battle of Geonosis and Arena Battle scenes were some of my favorites from the entire saga.
   I do hope that the three Arena beasts are included (Nexu, Reek, and Acklay), but this already seems very likely. I wouldn't mind seeing the Reek and Nexu being new with no electronics and articulation in the legs, but I'm not going to hold my breath. In addition to the beasts, I'd be happy with Padme, Obi-Wan, and Anakin with three pillars or 3-5 Sun Facs repainted as Geonosian Warriors.  One last item the would be cool to see is the sonic cannon that was supposed to come with the Arena Playset back in 2002.
   Overall, I'm kind of hopeful about this set and I am also very curious as to how it will look in its package.

No big deal--I didn't do a very good job of pulling it out, anyway.
