I wonder if these will be anything like the Walmart Jabba's band packs that were just out?   a few figures split into two sets?  Or maybe something like the Target Hoth and Endor sets? Add in Lars hovel and a moisture vaporater.   or dare I dream a Eopie  ;D

we shall see

Good point Scott.  I would hope that they would drop the word disturbance on the box if that's the case.  Doesn't seem like a kiddy friendly word to me.

It's still more kiddie-friendly than "Aunt and Uncle Charbroiled at the Lars Homestead" or "Mommy Slung Over the Back of a Speeder Bike at the Lars Homestead." :P

But seriously, terminology aside, neither of those scenes is really conducive to the GH treatment so I think it's more likely to be in 3 3/4.

I agree that It may be based on the Visionaries story where the half cyborg Maul attacks the Homestead to find Obi-Wan. It matches the title description to a tee.

Pack includes:
Half Cyborg Maul
Middle aged Kenobi
Owen Lars
Beru Lars
4yr old Luke
and the white tentacle droid

Remember Hasbro stated several times that EU is going to be a focus........

I wouldn't mind a ROTS-themed UBP, including the following:

Lars Homestead
Beru Whitesun
Owen Lars
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Baby Luke Skywalker
Eopie

I personally would love it if this gets done like last years target battlepacks. Have it consist of an ep2 Beru, Owen, Clieg, ep2 3p0 with better articulation, an SA anakin (from one of the evo sets) and the tatooine padme in the belly-baring blue dress. maybe put in the swoop bike from the anakin swoop bike set. Six figs and one vehicle shouldn't be too hard.
they can make part of the packaging resemble the Lars homstead with entrance dome. I kept my hoth battlepack cardboard insert so my son can use it to play with it and store the figures, at-st and gun turret on it.

but I'm still hoping TRU will put the exclusive tuskens on sale, the one with the bantha, it's still selling (or rather sitting on the shelf) for $45, drop it to $20-25 and I'll get one.

From the TRU computer (courtesy of RS):

059672 - $34.99 Ex Disturbance at Lars Homestead

At $34,99, it no longer seems likely that it's a GH item and probably is more like the TRU Bantha-style mega-BP.

Makes me wonder if that "Ex" in the title stands for "Expanded Universe"?  That would add evidence to the "visionaires" theme pack some folks were guessing...

That would certainly make sense.  After all, the Sandtroopers attack on the Lars Homestead never happens on screen in ANH.  But we do see the whole conflict between Maul and Obi-Wan at the Homestead in Visionaries.

So what would we get for $34.99?  Well, from the comic there's Darth Maul, Obi-Wan, Owen Lars, Beru and a juvenile Luke.  I'd venture a guess that for the added cash we might get the Homestead garage dome.  And maybe a moisture vaporator, too.

At $35 I think we're getting a normal sized BP. Isn't that what TRU charges for their exclusive BP's? I.e. Hoth and HFG...

Here in MN, TRU charged $25 for the HFG standard sized BPs... $35 is what they charged for the larger BPs, sort of like the Bantha set.

Yeah, they charget $25 for regular and exclusive ones in my area too.

For $35, I'd guess this is around the size of the Bantha set... I'm definitely hoping we get the dome with this.  New Owen and Beru would be fantastic.  So would Cliegg, but I'm not holding my breath.

I am thinking that this BP is probably from the new Clone Wars film. In the film they are on Tatooine.  Separtisits attack the Homestead and Anakin and Dooku duel it out.  that is my 2 cents

But what motivation do the Separatists have for attacking the Larses? I don't think they even know Anakin has any connection.

If it's from the new film, more likely it has to do with Jabba's henchmen.
