I ended up picking this set up yesterday. I had initially passed but I decided really wanted the pit itself.
Like most everyone else I'm fairly mixed on the set. I really love the pit itself, and the small sand base that it has. The skiff (though small and out of scale) is nice to have since I didn't have one. If Hasbro ever updates it this one can always work as a smaller model.
The figures on the other hand are god awful. I think the Albino/Ghost Luke should be a candidate for worst repack of all time. Take a look at Jayson's comparison picture
Lando looks like he is Hispanic. His skin is a good five-six shades lighter than it should be. I'm not sure why the chest armor is such a light grey and the pants are white either. I guess he will kind of work as a random skiff guard.
Han is all right I suppose. I'm not a huge fan of that headsculpt or the lack of articulation. The rubber bands on mine were so tight around his legs that they are squeezed together so tight that he can't stand up. A boil'n'freeze will fix it but I've noticed this seems to be happening to a lot of figures lately.
The 300th Fett needs to be retired... both the VOTC and Evolutions versions are much better. And The VOTC mold should have been free.
And why the hell hasn't Hasbro retired that damned weequay sculpt yet? It is about 11 years old now. There is no reason to keep releasing it. This figure is horribly outdated. At least they painted him a different color. His vibroaxe looks a like a limp, wet noodle. I'm really getting sick of the plastic Hasbro is using for weapons these days.
I'm almost convince that the large sand "base" is really just part of the packaging and not part of the actual display. It seems odd that they would include two bases that are of such different quality and material. Not to mention that this one isn't even a part of the picture on the back of the box. If the big one were supposed to be a part of the set it seems like it should have been the same material as the small sand base, and there would have been no reason to include the small one. I saved it for now because I might still use it at some point. I think I'd probably repaint it, and might add real sand too.
