    Lars Homestead 3-pack cancelled in favor of Jedi Council 3 packs x 2

    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

    Yoda
    Mace
    Plo Koon
    SaeSee Tiin
    Adi Gallia
    Eeth Koth
    Ki-Adi Mundi
    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:

    Yoda
    Mace
    Plo Koon
    SaeSee Tiin
    Adi Gallia
    Eeth Koth
    Ki-Adi Mundi
    Oppo Rancisis (repeat from above)
    Depa Billaba (repeat from above)
    Coleman Trebor
    Shaak-Ti
    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.

    I don't know. I shudder to think what Hasbro would do to a Cliegg Lars figure. Remember the horror that was POTF2 Uncle Owen? And Wuher was not quite what you would call a stellar figure. Hasbro just doesn't seem to do scruffy-lookin' men very well. Maybe it would be better to give us more Jedi to add to the lineup we already have.

    Oops. Here is a really good picture of Tatooine Travel Padme without her cloak she wears when they first arrive (hood up) and while she's on the rickshaw.

    At the Lars' dining table, she appears to have discarded it, and she is not wearing it at all when she goes (in this scene) to see Anakin off on the speederbike.

    It will do well to compliment Anakin on the speeder that we're also getting this year.

    What do I think?

    They should make a 3 pack of Owen, Beru, and Cliegg.
    They should make Jedi 3 packs to finish off BOTH councils.

    Problem solved!

    I'd much rather see more Jedi Council figures at this point than the Lars family, and I want to see them all resculpted too!

    I so OVER Jedi figures . . . They all look like they wandered in from a freeze frame of the most intense scene ever in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

    I wish the characters actual actions had been half as dynamic as their figures.

    I had high hopes for the Lars Homestead. Oh, well. It seems lately everything that appeals to me lately falls through. Time to turn to Lego, I guess.

    I was really disappointed to see that the Homestead scene pack was cancelled. Perhaps the figures will wander onto the pegs as carded items. Perhaps they won't. That's a shame, because for all of the "exciting" and "weird" aliens/droids/jedi we get... you'd think they could bother with giving us some of the more "human" characters.

    Oh, well...

    I would rather have the entire jedi council than the lars homestead. The council members are so cool...I love them. I wouldn't mind just 1 resculpt in order to have the complete set of the council...maybe another new Plo Koon?? He's one of my favorite characters in the films.
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    Both sound interesting. I would prefer the Lars 3 pack at this point just because we have lots of Jedis already. Maybe they will make both for us and make us happy.

    Again with the assumptions. I suggest that one of the jedi council sets would be mace windu, Obi-Yawn and Yoda. The other being Yareal Poof, Oppo Rancisis and Depa Billaba. It would be easier to shove Even piell and yaddle on a card together seeing as the smaller figures done as 2-packs seem to be going down quite well lately. The Lars homestead pack being cancelled altogether would be a bad move IMO. Doesn't mean it would necessarily have included any of the Lars clan though. Could have been the garage scene or the scene where Anakin resolves to go find his Mother and says goodbye to Padme.
    I'm happy for there to be two jedi council sets, I'd happily take the two smallest unmade Jedi as a 2-pack. I'd prefer to get a Tatooine set though as it's my favourite locale in the saga. There are far too many jedi figure coming out this year already and I think there is room for at least some other types of character despite what Hasbro seems to think with the poor showing of background characters this year.
    Yes it's cool there are soldiers and defenders of the peace and all that clones crap and gubbins but star wars is more than the bits with war. Star wars is richer and more diverse design wise than a few boring brown robes and a bit of space hardware.
