What do you think?
A reputable website reported that the Lars' Homestead Screen Scene 3-pack was put on hold in favor of a second Jedi Council 3-pack.
This could be a typo error that somebody with rumor information typed "Jedi Council 3-pack" twice, and somebody else thought that it was being "Refreshed" as they added that phrase to suggest the 2nd Jedi Council group would hold at least 1-3 new figures.
I myself really want to see them make young Owen, Beru, and Cliegg Lars.
There is no garauntee that this is what the 3-pack would have contained. It could have been Anakin, Tatooine Travel Padme, and C-3PO for all we know. Tatooine Travel Padme is now listed on the very likely true rumors list, in addition to Wedding Padme which is confirmed by Hasbro. Tatooine Travel Padme was mistakenly once even listed by Hasbro, so they must have been making her and had a change-of-mind several times on how to release her. (see picture of Natalie Portman in Tatooine Travel Outfit. She could unfortunately have a non-removeable cloak and hood (up) placed on her. Or they could do literally 2 figures out of this outfit if they don't figure out how to do a removeable cloak - and/or depending upon if they are making a Tatooine Rickshaw Droid figure/vehicle where she's going to have to sit down (with soft goods, or (and I don't care for this) a molded body like Final Jedi Duel Palpatine in his throne chair - a non-figure prop).
As to the Jedi Council 3-packs, there are only 5 original possibilities, so one by default HAS TO BE a resculpt.
Or worse, without giving us the remaining 5 (between both movies), they give us molded sitting figures for resculpts. I'd totally prefer softgoods for this case.
The Jedi lists are:
The Phantom Menace
Oppo Rancisis (furry face with snake tail)
Depa Billaba (human woman, with Leia Bespin hairstyle)
Yareal Poof (large Q-tip head, with 4 arms, 2 under cloak)
Yaddle (Yoda's species, female)
Even Piel (pink Lannik, looks similar to Yoda, larger, eye cut out)
and from Attack of the Clones:
Oppo Rancisis (repeat from above)
Depa Billaba (repeat from above)
Even Piel (repeat from above)
I would of course prefer the final 5 being offered before resculpts, but if there are 2 three-packs, then 1 of them must be a resculpt. What will they change on the resculpt? Will the other figures conform to this change (such as soft-goods or molded seated characters?)
Feasibly, the same 7 TPM, or the same 9 AOTC figures they have ALREADY MADE, could be resculpted, sitting down. Hasbro could cut costs by using the same molds for heads and some body parts of characters they have already done.
Eventually, a seated soft-goods Council from each movie would be nice - though I hope they'd include their lightsabers, hidden somewhere out of sight in the box, were they seated, not wielding them in the packaging.
I'd like all these figures, but I'd prefer Owen, Cliegg, and Beru before some of the others.
I'd prefer 5 new Jedi, before any seated resculpts.
