they still had 5 by me
Thanks for the info on this! I order this from TRU with a $25 store credit towards the purchase! I haven't got it yet, but should have it soon!!!Quality is great. Don't pass up if you don't have the Rancor... Jabba is good too... figures are good... and right now the price is just $79.98 at TRU.
I'm not sure I would agree. Mine has very stark differences in coloring between the feet and legs, and between other parts as well, so it looks kind of pieced together. Probably varies from figure to figure though.The Rancor is painted much nicer and more realistically than the previous Target version, for what it's worth.
No I have the Walmart Jabba, which is nice enough to not need replacing. I also wish there was a new rancor keeper in place of Leia she another gamorean guard in place of 3po.
"I will love him and pet him, and he shall be my Squishy, and Squishy will be mine."The rancor is ridiculously awesome, I'd say it's nearly worth the price of admission alone and who knows when (if ever!) Hasbro will revisit this mold for another release. If you've got everything else from the set I imagine you could easily make back a good $30-$40 from selling off the stuff you don't want, especially the Jabba.
On cool, I caved and picked it up, just haven't opened it yet.Until I had the new Jabba I totally agreed with you. Once I put them together there is no comparison. The Walmart Jabba looks flat, or mushed compared to the black Jabba. The Walmart Jabba is great, until you have the black series Jabba.
Watch Return Of The Jedi again; the Walmart Jabba looks like a pretty accurate representation from ROTJ, while this TRU exclusive Jabba looks more like the ANH SE Jabba.Until I had the new Jabba I totally agreed with you.

I don't really think this Jabba looks much like the CGI Jabba from ANH. I like the Walmart Jabba quite a bit, but it has some problems. The main one is that the head is too big in relation to the body, and looks kind of like a separate piece balanced on top of the body (which it basically is). There aren't many full-body shots of Jabba in Jedi, so I think we tend to overestimate how big his head was in relation to the body. But to me, the BS version looks more in proportion.Watch Return Of The Jedi again; the Walmart Jabba looks like a pretty accurate representation from ROTJ, while this TRU exclusive Jabba looks more like the ANH SE Jabba.
File it alongside the speeder bike, TVC Republic Gunship, TVC Millennium Falcon, B-Wing, Ewok catapult, Scanning Crew sets, Geonosis Jedi sets, Yavin Pilots etcI keep tormenting myself by coming back to this thread even though I know it will never be available in the UK!
