I noticed in this week's Q and A (this one was at The Jawa) that Hasbro confirmed that the beak will be removable on this upcoming Battle Pack, so you can have the Special Edition or non-Special Edition version of the Sarlacc.  Good news!

A "friend" was wondering if the pit itself will be hard plastic or rubbery.

:P

Valid question now that the Lars set has been released.

Looks kind of nifty to me.  I know not everyone is super excited for this, but I'm really looking forward to it.  The Skiff is one of the last OT ships I have to pick up, and the Sarlacc Pit is something I always hoped we would see made.  Hopefully the quality of plastic is a bit better than we've heard about the Lars Homestead - but it does look pretty good so far.  I wonder if this means they will be available online as well.  That's a good option if anyone has troubles finding them locally.  I didn't have much trouble with last year's packs (although Hoth sold quickly), but with this new "set piece" you never know.

This is not going to be an easy decision.  I have the Skiff (and all the figures), so the price is going to seem high for just the Sarlaac.  But I really want it for my Jabba display.  Arrgh.

There was more than one skiff in that scene.   :D

That was my thought, if people wanted to justify two...  Speaking of, Brian if you want a skiff hit me up.  I can get you a second one so your scene is accurate. :P

I'm looking forward to this for the monster, but not the skiff...  So the price hurts.

The figures will go in the trade pile. It'll be nice to have a second skiff though.

From the picture, it looks like neither.  Seeing how the light shines off it, it seems like another vac-formed piece similar to the Lars Homestead set.

I suspected that the ground/sand would be like the Lars Homestead, I was wondering about about the pit/sarlacc.

Good point.  OK now I justify the set.  ;)
