Ooooh, womp rat. Very nice. Seeing as how I don't have a Beru or Owen in my collection, I might get this pack. It'll depend on whether or not I have enough room.

Woah! 50 bucks for that?! It's short about 4-5 figures minimum.

Homestead is nice though.

Repacks aside, this set is pretty nice, I never knew womp rats were that big.

I do not mind the repacks, I only wish they polished the paint jobs up on them. Why is it the Uncle Owen has always been molded in a newborn hamster color plastic. It still looks shiny/translucent. I even hated that when the set came out in 97'. I am in for this set despite the hefty price tag.

I will certainly buy this at some point for the dome.   I wish Hasbro would have at least gotten rid of the pointed finger on Owen.  That is the one thing that drives me nuts about that figure.  Anyway I am glad Hasbro is making an attempt at playsets/dioramas.  I can't believe they made the Sarlacc thing.  I gotta give them kudos for at least attempting to go this way.  Make a freaking Death Star playset/diorama and I'd be pretty happy.

Very true.
I would rather see some stuff like this than nothing at all. In time they can get better. I am surprised the amount of complaints. Not that I want to grovel to Hasbro but I definitely appreciate the attempt and will support both endeavors.

Where are the womp rats? I don't see them.

I actually dont mind the Dome all that much. I dont have the Lars family, a romp rat is always welcome, and I am building a Sandtrooperr squad anyways. my only complaint is it being a TRU exclusive and the price tag.$50 US usually comes around $60CDN which is a bit much for this set and since it is a TRU exclusive no chance of a sale. I might have to wait it out and see with this set, maybe even just buy it in the States or look for a bargain at the next con I go to (after it comes out of course).


Romp Rat is right behind Owen. huge sucker you cant miss it.

It would have been nice to have some new sculpts for Owen and Beru, but I guess I'm not overly surprised.  I don't have either of the earlier figures (was holding out for new versions), and I like the dome, so I'll likely grab this set.  Plus, there's always room for another Sandtrooper.  I'm a little surprised (disappointed) at the $50 pricepoint, it does seem a bit steep for what we're getting.

Come on... they couldn't have at least thrown a new right arm onto Owen?!

I am surprised the amount of complaints.

Really?

A lot of the collectors (the target market for this set) already have the three figures included so essentially they have to justify fifty bucks for a dome and a womp rat.

****, I would have been happy with a normal plastic color for Owens skin.

I am surprised the amount of complaints.

Really.
But not in regards to the hefty price tag, I was referring the Dome/Sarlacc pieces themselves. My apologies if I was not clear. I thought this was going to be $35 as did many others. Repacks with a new dome, womp rat and an evaporator for $35 I was fine with, I understand the need to repack. The $50 is very steep for what's given so I totally agree with you there.

I still have not seen a clear pic of the price tag, can anyone find a pic to confirm the $50 price tag? I have not been able to find a clear shot to confirm.

Anyone besides Dagobah around here ever try making your own custom version of the homestead?  It's very frustrating to get the curves/shapes right.

I just hope that the "base" isn't some thin piece of plastic that can dent/etc.  And I agree, the Owen and Beru just suck.  We should be getting new versions of them with this.   

$50 may be expensive, but it's certainly worth it to me... I've been waiting for this for 13 years now.
