I wonder if the rancor will be ugly and new. it would rock if it was a repack with that new luke skywalker w/bone, the green nikto, oola carcass, and a new sculpt of rancor keeper.

If the Rancor pack has anything in it that isn't a kitbash or a repack, and it costs less than the Bantha did - I'll eat my hat.

I'm hoping it's a Force Unleashed Rancor with Shaak Ti and a few other surprises... but then again I'm not holding my breath.

In SWAN's (Star Wars Action News) podcast, Hasbro said that there are going to be 2 color versions of this Bantha set.

Hear it for yourself at the 53 minute mark.

Why would they do two colors?  Am I missing something?   ???

its just hasbro screwing with us again.

I will be tremendously happy if the bantha has a running change with the old POTF2 one, although thatd make it unneccsessary for them to have released the crappy perm one.

I think the Rancor will come with Oola and an Gamorrean Guard. I mean that Oola was originally on the Basic Figure list for the TAC. So maybe they threw her in there.

That is very possible. Would make sense too.

I'm pretty excited about this guy. I've never owned a bantha (except the little Galoob guy), and the pics of this one look pretty sweet so far. I'll wait to see it in person at TRU, but I'm wanting the set at this point. The VTSC Tusken is cool; I only have two. And I don't mind the female and kiddie cos I never bought those. I definitely want to see what these two color variants are before deciding, though. I'm not herd-building these things!

A lot of people have gotten conformation that the Bantha is en-route from TRU.com. Does this mean we should be seeing these in the store any day?

I preordered these as well during the "BOGO" sale TRU had a little while back.  It shows as "in stock" for me as well, but it still hasn't shipped.  For some reason, they don't show up on my order page when I log in at TRU.com, but I got an e-mail which showed they were in stock.  You never know with TRU.com I guess.
