OOh this looks very cool.

The Felucian is VERY alien. More plant like than animal. But that fits considering the world it's from.

One of the cooler items shown today I think is this set.  The Felucian is simply fantastic, and I hope he gets a general release figure int he basic line at some point to army build him a bit.

The Rancor looks pretty great too...  Very much anticipating this piece!

Yeah, I wouldn't mind getting a squad of Felucians.

This set is sweet! I cannot wait for the ROTJ Rancor when they repaint this guy! Very cool set just too many exclusives the year. I think this is the most ever in a single year!

That is badass. I wonder if the Felucian subspecies of rancor has bioluminescent stripes, or if it's just warpaint. The former would be a lot cooler.

I'll pick one of these up on clearance, but at this point, I'm happy with my POTF2 Rancor.

Is that a blue jaw-bone type weapon that the Felucian warrior comes with? That would be kinda cool if everything about them was organic, even their weapons.

Like the Vong?

I don't really like the design of the warrior too much... not Hasbro's fault though.

I am with you, I cannot even tell what it is. Regardless, I hope we get a TFU Shaak Ti to ride that big boy!  ;)
For the first time I can actually say I really want a Hasbro repaint of this guy ROTJ style!

If Hasbro doesn't make a Shaak Ti, I'll really be aggravated... just for reference, Straxus made an fantatic custom of her -

This will be my first Rancor as I never picked up the POTF2 one.
I remember my dream now.

I have a really stupid question...Is this the same Rancor as the POTF2 version?  I never opened mine, but I believe his head was fairly close to sticking around the ground.

No iFett, it's a completely different sculpt...

It appears to have torso articulation to it, and I believe there's ball/socket ankles there, whereas the original had neither...  Not to mention the original has a molded-on earring, molded-on wrist restraints, and also this one's jaw appears to open/close whereas the original one does not.

I do believe this one would make a great base for a new ROTJ one, as rumored.  I don't know if the saddle and all that is molded onto it though.  Tough to tell.
