Target "Pit of Carkoon" Ultimate BP
« on: July 23, 2008, 04:53 PM »
Holy Sarlaac, Batman!   :o 



Apparently, the set includes the Sarlaac, the Skiff, Jedi Luke, TSC Carbonite Han, Lando, Weequay, and Boba Fett.  More pics at Rebelscum!

Didn't Hasbro already say there's no way in hell they'd ever make this  ???

I had read about the Skiff in the Q&A's.  But the Sarlacc Pit is a complete and welcome surprise.  Too bad about the repack figures though.

Bravo for Hasbro making these things for collectors.  However, there was no beak in the Sarlacc  :P.  Really, there wasn't.  I'll skip this since I have 2 skiffs and all of those figures, and the playset is too small for the display I have, but I'm glad some will like it!

Did it have the beak in a later revision or am I just confusing it with the Millenium Falcon eating/mynock hosting asteroid worm?

The beak was a Special Edition addition.

Very cool! What a nice surprise!

Now let's just hope a Sail Barge is on its way, too! ;D

Mayyyyyybe this is a precursor to the Barge?  I'm hoping that sucker has plenty of screen time in the movie.

Although the concept is cool, it looks really wierd considering there is nowhere to connect the skiff(atleast from what we can see) so that it is above the pit and not directly beside it. Not to mention all of those figures are a let down. But if I do get this it will be for the Skiff, I have always wanted that vehicle but just hated the $60+ price tag I have seen on them. I can see this being a target exclusive though.

 :o  :o  :o This is by far the coolest thing Hasbro has ever made. I have not been so excited so Yarna was finally officially announced.

Whatever happened to all the folks getting pissy about certain people inquiring with Hasbro about playsets over the past couple years?  These are the same folks who said that other sites were wasting questions by mentioning playsets?  That there was no way in hell that more playsets were coming as there is not a market for them, because Hasbro said so. 

Anyways, good to see; regardless if it comes with repacks.  Could mean better and bigger things are around the corner.

Holy ****, this thing is some pretty serious vindication for you there.

Between the Lars Homestead stuff and this... congrats.

The figures ruin an otherwise fine playset. Either use better versions or don't include figures at all. Either way, congrats CHEWIE for finally getting what you want. :)
