Be careful, or else they'll do a 1/6th scale Rancor...yanno, Toddler sized! LOL :o

put me down for 1  ;D

As sick as that is to say, I would buy it. I am sure it would look amazing (and i am sure the price would be too  :o) I never really liked Hasbro's Wampa so i hope they redo that. Dewbacks and Tauntauns woul dbe cool but i could live with the Hasbro ones. I would also really like to see a bantha. With that said if all this happens i think i would have to move to a bigger place.

I was in absolute awww of the Jabba scene! I ordered it as soon as I found out it was up for sale on their site. I am totally impressed with the quality SS continues to give to us. Every penny spent with them is well worth it IMO.

How many different versions of these things do they make? What are the differences between "inclusive", exclusive and regular editions? ???

Are there exclusive versions of each of the items: Jabba, throne and creatures?

Teh Jabba looks amazing, though I'd have to sell my kidneys if I wanted to buy the whole package.

Inclusive versions usually have a longer order period and with that said, there usually is no "exclusive" version sold.  However, Jabba and the Salacious set each have an exclusive piece being offered. 
Obviously, the exclusive version is a step up from the regular edition.  Once the exclusvie version is sold out SS drops down to the regular version (which can sell out quickly also, depending on the size edition).  Inclusive versions have no pre-set size edition.  They take all the orders and then ( I assume) from that point set an amount to make.  It will be limited but not to the point that you didn't have at least 5-6 days to order it.  Now a domestic version is just that - you can't get it from EE, BBTS or any other online dealer.  You can only order it direct from Sideshow. 
At least this is my take on all this, I hope that helps...

I don't collect 12" at all...never bought a 12" figure in my life...and I bought the Jabba and throne and critters. 

Anyone else not collect 12" but get sucking into this piece?

Sideshow must think that this figure won't be too hot as it is an exclusive version rather than inclusive....

Got to love the exclusive Kenner staff!

So....

How much better- what are the differences?- is this Bib going to be from the Hasblo one?

I suspect it will be mildly better but I don't see too much of a difference except for articulation based on the pictures.

Any thoughts?

I don't have the Hasbro version, but I can almost guarantee that the Sideshow version will have a better sculpt and be more poseable.

I base this comparison on the SS Anakin Skywalker compared to the Hasbro Ultimate Villain Anakin/Vader.

I have the Hasbro version and just with the simple pictures from SDCC, it looks much better.  The face sculpt is "clearer" or more detailed or however one would put that.  The clothing looks like it has better detailing also and I assume the articulation will be the same as the others from SS.

I also think the Hasbro version will look lame next to Jabba, especially if you are picking up the other SS dolls - but that is just my opinion.

I have no picture posting ability whatsoever but you can easily find photo's of the Hasbro version online and compare from those.

I have a meeting today at noon, so I hope it ends by 1 so I can my exclusive Bib.  I might pre-order the regular and get on the waiting list for the exclusive and hope for the best if I'm still stuck working at 1  >:(

...and the madness begins again.... :-X

After about 25 refreshes, my order popped up and in 15 seconds I was the proud owner (pre-owner?) of Bib.
Pictures look fantastic!!
