The Eopie is actually a pretty cool toy, if you look at it from the display perspective. It doesn't walk like the Kaadu (which consequently doesn't stand all too well), bite like the Opee Sea Killer, or (groan) spit frog heads, but the sculpt is great, it's articulated where it needs to be articulated, and the pack-in figure was pretty good too. Why they released this in the final beast assortment for Episode I (or didn't release it in the US at all) is something that always bothered me, especially since that Jabba the Hutt monstrosity was released, and had a pack-in figure that was based on abandoned conceptual art on top of it.
I was lucky enough to get one of these back in 2000 via a friend on a mailing list who bought an entire case of them from overseas, for about 25 bucks shipped. At that point, the Ebay factor hadn't really set in because Hasbro hadn't said one way or another (and come to think of it, they still haven't) if it was going to come out in the US or not. There is no reason for it to not be rereleased though, especially with all these Battle Packs coming out.
They could do a straight Tatooine Battle Pack from TPM with the following figures:
-Eopie with Qui-Gon Jinn (the original beast pack, unaltered)
-Darth Maul (pick your version; I'd go with the Trophy Edition and a lightsaber if I had to have a repack)
-3 Pit Droids from the Episode I Bonus Packs
-Anakin Skywalker (POTJ Mechanic repaint with backpack)
-Pack-In Accessories: Sith Probe Droid and Pit Droid tools
