I think the Orray and Lava Flea were both forum based rumors at the otheR Site...which means they are bull****

Wasn't that gelegrub worm thing the last "beast" they released?  That thing didn't sell very well - at least in my area.  I know I didn't buy it because I didn't see $25 in that box.

I'd like to see a Dianogah.

You know they did this right?  And it's pretty darn good too!  It's 2 parts, and came in the Death Star Trash Compactor sets (whose Han/Luke are horrifically yellowed now, worse maybe than any other modern figure I can think of).

That one was a bit of a snooze, you're right - hopefully the new Taun Taun will do well and bring about other beasts though.  The legacy Dewback is being repacked, and I have a bad feeling it wont sell well...

Oh yeah, the Geelegrub thing. It should have been cool, but it ended up looking like crap.

I'd like to think we'd end up with a new Acklay when AOTC 3D comes out, but I'm sure we'll just get the same one repackaged. Which is too bad, because for all the articulation has, it's nearly unposeable.

Well articulated versions of the Nexu and Reek would be cool.  I always thought that the Nexu was far too preposed, and a creature that's so cat-like should be pretty well articulated.  Ideally I'd love to see it come with one of the execution columns that it could climb.

The Reek is kind of the same deal.  There should be some decent leg articulation so that you can get it running.  And arena versions of Anakin, Obi-Wan and Padme with ball jointed hips that allow them to ride the Reek would be great companion pieces.

A new Nexu and retooled Padme would be great for the deluxe line.

You know, we don't have a Krayt Dragon. We need a Krayt Dragon. I'd perfer one with the new voice that Obiwan gave it in the Blu-ray. ;)

It is, and it's cool cuz the tail's bendy.  The crummy part's buying the sets to get it, but the end result is a cool dianoga.  THe compactor base and bits are ok too.

At this point the figures are throw-aways.

The Dianoga was pretty cool, I bought one from a fellow collector because I had no interest in the figures from the two sets.  Hasbro could probably card it by itself and sell it as a basic figure.

Yeah, the dianoga was great. I'd say it's easily the best part of that pack.

Does anyone know if the new Dewback is coming with any accessories? I guess they're trying to market it as a background Mos Espa dewback, so I hope it has some packs and gear strapped to it, making it more of a beast of burden. Otherwise, sculpy, here I come.

I'd like what you mentioned Lando but I'm guessing we won't get that.  :(  It almost looks like we get just a Dewback and nothing else, which seems odd to me.

I was thinking of making my own stowage for it too...  if you buy cheap hankies at WM, you can take cheap craft paint from the dollar store and stuff (so long as it's water based), thin it with water, soak them in it, let them dry, and make different colored "tarps".  Roll them and tie them up with baker string/twine and they make nice large tent/bedroll things.

I was thinking of sewing some saddlebags up too.  Nothing special, but something cool enough to look realistic and bulky.

That sounds like a great idea...I hadn't thought of using hankies before.

I think I'll have to get working on some sort of Tatooine settlers to hang out with the Dewback. Or maybe three drunk jawas to sit in front of it, ala the Cantina.
