Best/Worse case scenario is that the three I bought helps us get a repaint of this excellent beasty for Jabba's palace.

Three more in the pot.  Three less we need to hear about Hasbro bitching about how we won't get a ROTJ version.   :)

Thanks Chewie - I knew I saw a pic with the Apprentice facing off with more than one Rancor and Shaak Ti. Well, I'm not going to go crazy with four of them to open, but two is a good number.  ;D

I guess I'm going to keep it and open it. They will make an excellent center-piece on the shelf where I display all of the Force Unleashed figures.

Even if that is her on all of them, I'm sure there's more than one Rancor on all of Felucia...  ;)

I wonder if we'll see one in the game with that red paint scheme like in the painting?  If so, I might be tempted to try that on one of mine.

Maybe it somekind of force illusion.  So not to know which is the real Shak Tii to fight.
just a thought

Picked up two Rancors yesterday.  Very nice.  I just wish he didn't have such a hard time standing up by himself.

^ I feel the same way about the Rancor... I love it, but mine don't stand too well either.

I'm gonna have to agree with you guys. I can either make my Rancors look like monkeys by using their hands to walk, or have him stand straight up and lean on his tail. Neither of those options make for a hungry and ferocious looking enemy.  :(

I've got my boxed and loose versions, but am thinking about returning the boxed one and waiting for clearance.  One store near my house has ten of these things sitting around and I can't imagine they are going to sell at full price anytime soon.

I may nab a 2nd on clearance if I get it cheap enough...  Nearby has 2 sitting now for a while and I'm guessing more in the back.  At $40 a pop, they're neat but pricey...  So I'm banking I can get one at least $10 or $20 off at some point.  I'd dig a 2nd, though I have no clue where it will go.
