My gripes with the Lars Homestead go like this though JOT...
-I dig the huvvel, it's cool, and I'd like it just as a basically big accessory. To me that's all it is though... Not much different than the vaporators, which were cool, but I don't know that the dome is $35 cool. The price is pretty high on this set compared to a regular battlepack for $20.
-I'd have liked to have seen a kitbashed Owen... Beru I'm ok with actually. Owen though, he's really dated... A new head (all I'm askin' for), and a body re-used from a Jedi, would've made me warm up to the set enough to buy it, and it may have given people an Owen they felt was "good enough". Owen's outfit isn't far off from Plo Koon's... I'd have taken something like that kitbashed together with just a new head.
-Likewise I think a droid repaint, even if it wasn't "really there", would've helped this sets value... A repaint of the R1 droid would've been nice as it's never been repainted and hasn't been out in a while.
Something from the figures had to be enticing to me though... A new weapon with the Sandtrooper? Eh, perhaps that would've improved my outlook. Sounds small, and ultimately it is, but a new gun for one of the Sandies would've definitely piqued my curiosity just a hair more enough to maybe buy it.
As it stands now I'm really on the fence and teetering towards "no" on that particular set, but only because I've got my army of Sandtroopers overflowing right now, and I don't want Owen/Beru really, and the dome is cool but I'm not so sure it's $35 cool... The ARC Fighter was $35 cool. A dome... Not so much.
