I wonder if that Gigantic Lizard Ape that tossed the Rancor like a rag doll in the Sequel Trailer will fit in one of those boxed sets.  ;D

No - look at how badly TFU Rancor sold.  I saw a mountain on clearance for $9 somethingish - not to mention the build up of ROTJ Rancors still rotting..  Plus this thing is WAY too big.

 ;)I was just kidding. Although they made the dumb ass Cloverfield Monster.....

I look forward to these sets whatever they are. TFU is some of the best EU material to use and with a year with less Legacy I really welcome these.

In order for there to be a toy of the Predabeast (my name for the creature that tossed the Rancor around), it would have to be the size of a human. So how about a costume then? YOU can be the Predabeast tossing your toy Rancor around and the Action Figure would be the right size. Just a thought.

Man that would be a sight to see at Celebration 5!

Isn't that beast another one of those King Rancors from the first game?

You're thinking of the Bull Rancor Lando and they were not much bigger than a normal Rancor.

Ah yes, that's right. Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be yet another caste of Rancor. When I first saw the trailer and the thing was stepping into the light, I thought for a split second that it was going to be the Gorax. Obviously I was quickly aware that it wasn't, but it would be kind of cool...

Yeah, a Gorax would have been very cool as well. A nice tie-in to the Ewok movie.

I have been screaming this at RS.com - we need a "build-a-Gorax" line!!!

Build a Gorax... love the idea, but I just can not ever see that happening.

Apparently a bunch of people (myself included) thought the Cloverfield toy was cool. It sold out without having any markdowns, which is better than the other big toys. (Star Wars and GI Joe)

Yeah, I was thinking the exact same thing. That toy was freaking awesome, and good luck finding one ANYWHERE for less than $100. It's still on my want list.

IIRC the Gorax is the giant from the Ewok Adventure.
