So, we have this big Arena Battle playset coming out and will HAsbro stay true to form?? With all the EP1 playsets(theed hanger, generator, and even the R2 case came with a figure( or figure like) pack in. Will the new playset have one? I would say yes but it's just me speculating. What do you think?

I think that just like all the vehicles this year, there will be no figure pack-in with the playset. Plus the specs for the arena playset on the official site don't mention a figure pack-in. Infact it goes as far as saying in the official announcment "Figures not included"

Recreate the Star Wars battle scenes with all of your action figures, beasts, and vehicles in the ARENA PLAYSET. One side of the playset is an ominous arena, where many a prey has fallen victim to the deadly beasts within. On the other side is the factory where the legions of BATTLEDROIDS and SUPER BATTLEDROIDS are produced. Figures not included. (Approximate Retail Price: $39.99; Recommended Age: 4 & up; Availability: fall)

No problemo HC. Helping people is one of the reasons I am here. The top three would be: 1. I love helping people. 2. I am a Star Wars fanatic. 3. I have no life, but Star Wars. :D

Well, considering the last three playset figures (Cloud City Guard, Qui Gon with dancing action and bust apart battle droid) were the biggest pieces of ńss Hasbro has ever put out (The holy Cruise Missile Trooper excluded. CMT be praised!) I certainly hope they don't have any retarded pack ins...

Well it looks like they're packing-in the pillars so we don't have to buy multiple Padmes. :p

Don't speak badly of the cruise missle trooper, to this day that is my favorite figure.:crazed:

In all seriousness, I'd rather get those pillars than a crappy pack-in figure. Those pack-ins aren't usually any good.

The price will be lower because there will be no figures packed inside :)So its good :)

It would be cool if a beast was included, but then again i would be dreaming. :zzz: j

That's very surprising. I figured that they'd include at least one el-cheapo Battle Droid, just to entice figure completests who wouldn't otherwise buy the playset. I'll probably end up getting it, but the final product quality will determine whether I pick it up in April, or wait for it to go on clearance in June of 2003.

I'm considering the energy binder platform the 'pack-in figure', because it's the only accessory there not directly associated with the Arena sequence.

You can see its use in all three of the trailers.
