The 'Scum list the Villains Set at $24.99 retail. I think many folks waited for clearance. I never found them on such, and just bought one online from someone who probably found the sets on deep discount.
Mostly the reissues in the past were one reissued figure in set of mostly new (a few clone wars sets), with some oddities like that ROTS 9 pack with some silver Vader. Though that was when figures were $5, so a $40 set of 9 figures....seems hard to believe today. Harder to believe that was Kaybees exclusive. I thought they were defunct by then....must be because the one locally had already closed. (2009 when they all folded...)
Ironically enough, with all of this Jabba discussion, I just had an issue with my home's air conditioning system that may explain why Hasbro went back to the well on Jabba so quickly.
Long story short, my AC broke down about two weeks ago and was out for two days during some pretty hot and humid days with only fans for air circulation. Anyway, even with the AC back running, I checked Jabba out and he was (for lack of a better word) "sweating" on the bottom part of his body. It was as if life was imitating art, as Jabba was literally covered in a layer of slime, which has also covered the top of the dais where he sat.
I was able to clean him and the dais off with warm water, and there was no staining, discoloration, or deterioration noted, but there's no doubt that it was a combination of the rubbery material and the AC failure that led to this happening.
After opening mine up, my impression of the Wal-Mart Jabba was that the rubbery parts felt cheap and won't hold up over time. I'm not surprised. Though, I was expecting the material to tear.
