First, nobody's opinion is invalid so can we just leave the way people feel about it out of the conversation? I've said this in the past, it's not a difficult rule to follow really... Someone doesn't like it? Fine... State why you do or don't, but lay off the "Some people just like to complain" remarks because they're not appreciated on this board. Enjoy the toy if you want, and don't enjoy it if you don't... Everyone has valid reasons for both points of view.
Second... I'm in the camp that does NOT like this... Not for $50. $30, maybe... I dig the womprat, the paintjob is nice and spiffs it up a bit, but the figures are a detraction from the set to me and have to be factored into the overall "value" here.
This is essentially just a couple pieces of plastic too... Keep in mind Hasbro confirmed as much. It's a very simple piece, yet it's costing us $50 for said simple piece + some rehashed figures? Come on... That's not cool at all.
I dig the womprat, I dig another vaporator even, but I guess I'm just disappointed. To me the Sarlacc Pit is more interesting as a toy... It has some "action" to it sort of, so I'm into it as it's really kind of an action figure unto itself. The plastic dome though, just doesn't do it for me...
Had the figures been better, I think my opinion would've been swayed. I think Hasbro could've used an existing Jedi body as a base, add some softgoods, and a slightly new tooled head to fit the body, and they'd have delivered a better Owen that I'd probably have been content with. The Sandtrooper... Eh. I dunno, a new gun would've been nice at least to push me on that figure... Beru I'm cool with as-is as she's at least a nice sculpt.
For me though, Hasbro just needed to put forth a little more effort on the figures to get me to like it "enough". For $30 I'd be totally there right now though. THe rat and paintjob would've probably sold me. For $50, not so much. To me it was all about pricing on this one and I think Hasbro overpriced it. I feel the same way on the Previews TIE Fighter, and as much as I want the pilot I'll be skipping it due to outrageous pricing.
