The Bantha Mount

Disappointed with the Bantha, BTW.

See, I watched the original Star Wars movie in the original theatrical release last night (Han shoots first, stereo sound, cheap-looking StormTrooper armor, and all that: still a fun movie and very nostalgic.) The dewback there is accurately represented in SWTOR, the Bantha, not so much.

In the first movie, a Bantha's hips are the same height as their shoulders, not like the slope-backed creatures passing for a Bantha in SWTOR. And the bantha moves (not surprisingly) like an elephant, not like a hopping Pomeranian/dust-mop hybrid.

BW, please give us a proper Bantha, and I promise to spend spend real money to get one. Thank you!

Seeing Banthas hovering consistently around 2.5-3mil now on my primary GTN server with at least 1 full page at all times. Steep drop from the initial 2-3 at a time for 6-10mil.
Lowest i seen one go was for 2.5 million last week, and I scooped that baby right up. After they they spiked into the 6mill+ range for a good few days. Only 2 are for sale now, think they were at 5 mill last I looked.

Better get one now, once the June packs come out with walkers and rancors, no one will be opening hotshot anymore me thinks....

The last time I checked it was still 5 million on Progenitor. But that was last week and I haven't been able to check again, since my PC died. *sobs quietly*

And from the looks of it my sub will run out before my new one arrives too. ._.

I actually agree with this statement.

I was considering buyin one as my main Tatooine mount (for making movies) but when I saw a guild mate with it and asked him to show it off to me I lost all interest.

I dont like SWTOR Bantha either.
It looks like a puppy to me http://dulfy.net/wp-content/uploads/...ghter-pack.jpg . Nothing like the movie one http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2.../Bantha-ST.jpg .

And you are right about the hips - http://dulfy.net/wp-content/uploads/...ter-pack-2.jpg check out the difference http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2...antha_herd.png .

BTW , KOTOR`s Bantha was funny looking either http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2...0px-Bantha.png.

I wouldn't call it 'nothing like it'... it does, in fact, look quite a bit like the Movie version.

Maybe we`ve got Bantha Cow (female). That explain the lower hips and small cute face.
