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

Wow that's good news - I figured there were at least some parts re-used in there. The arms I know are different. The head looked a bit better too, so that should have been my #1 clue that this was an all new sculpt.

Kudos to Hasbro for not just re-painting the old POTF2 one for this exclusive.

I wouldn't have figured it's new. Might be cool to get one and re-paint it.

I'm going to be tempted to do that Anton, but I really think that they'll use this for a ROTJ one too.

I was thinking that too, but does this one have the collar and ear ring?

When you compare the POTF2 one to the new one it's a night and day difference. My old one is up for trade right now on my trade thread. I might get 2 of these Rancors I wish they had a assortment in stead of just one.

I'm waiting for all of the inevitable repaints.

Fire Rancor (Dark Red skin with dark red-black in the creases and recesses of the cracks and folds.)
Ice Rancor (White with blue highlights)
Shadow Rancor (Mostly dark grey and black)

These will go with the TFU Jungle Rancor and of course the ROTJ basic repaint.

But does the new one have 'Real' Skin.?  ;)

Has anyone been checking this DPCI number at Target? I thought these were supposed to show up around the same time as the Order 66 sets, so it might be worth a shot to start checking for this beast.

I'm very excited about this, as it will be the second large animal I add to my collection. (Bantha was the first) The rider looks really cool, and I hope it gets repacked individually later this year or early next year. I'm definitely in for one set, and possibly a second depening on how much I like the first and possible clearance prices. The Rancor should look great next to fighting the Hasbro Cloverfield Monster. (when I get them both)

Until you see it on ebay consider it not released. I have been checking eBay and Target stores no luck on Order 66, the Rancor or the 3 exclusive Joe vehicles yet.
