Yep, I would have to agree that a sarlacc creature would be just awesome.  I almost think it would take an outside company to make the Sail Barge though.  I think I might try my hand at customizing one this winter.

I'd love a:

Bantha with SA Tusken Raider
Dewback with SA Tatooine Trooper (with the AT TE Gunner style legs)
Ronto with Jawa
Rancor with OTC/Saga Jedi Luke

I don't know what any of those PT animals are, but I'd take a Prequel Bantha with SA Tusken Raider...

I was pretty disappointed to see that the Beast Assortments don't seem to be coming back anytime soon...

That being said, here's my wishlist for 2007 anyway...

- Eopie repack
- Nexu resculpt (super articulated legs)
- Utapau dragon (you can see these flying in the battle scenes)
- Bantha repack
- Dewbacl (new sculpt)
- Ronto (new sculpt)
- Sarlacc

 :)

Hasbro says they're thinking about beasts for '07 so cross your fingers everybody!

The big thing for me is still the Eopie.  I think they could make it work in the ROTS context, but it's not as exciting as a tauntaun or something, so we'll see.

I have all the beasts that have been previously released so i really dont need any re-releases, but i do want a sarlaac playset which i guess is technically a beast/  ;D

For an actual beast, I have always wanted a Krayt Dragon. Now that would be awesome!

I wouldn't mind seeing the Beast assortment come back in some form, even if it is an exclusive here or there.  I really think the TaunTauns would make a nice little "deluxe priced" set with a Han and/or Luke - and aside from the TRU pack awhile back, they really haven't been seen much.  They always seemed to be favorites of fans/collectors and kids alike, so I think a new or repainted/re-released TaunTaun would be a good idea.  I also wouldn't mind seeing things like the Rancor and Bantha make a comeback, although at this point in the line it would probably be as exclusives.  I have a Rancor that my brother wanted to get rid of, but I'm still hoping to pick up a Bantha eventually.  I think if they keep the prices down on the beasties, it could be a good seller for Hasbro.  Many of them haven't been on the shelves for a long time, so many collectors might be interested - and I think kiddos always like the beasts as well.
