Target Jabba's Palace Rancor with Luke
« on: July 25, 2008, 07:29 PM »
Linky.

Looks like it is on the way after all.  I'm glad I held off on the Force Unleashed one, and that this one is indeed confirmed for next year.  Looks nice.

Wow.  I was going to try to customize the FU one, but glad I waited too.  Look at that paint job!

I ended up with an FU one on clearance, and I can't believe the trouble this thing has standing. I am not excited to spend $40 to get a larger Jabba's Rancor that can't stand any better than the POTF2 one I spent $20 on 10 years ago. Here's hoping this hits clearance as well.

Maybe this version comes with a "walker" that we haven't seen.   :D 

$10 for the FU version was pretty nice even if he can't stand very well.  Didn't Hasbro threaten us saying the Jabba version wouldn't be made unless the FU version sold through?  I've seen mountains of $10 FU versions.

btw - where's the bone?

This is why I didn't buy the FU version. I knew this would eventually be made, and I only have room for one Rancor.  :)

Space can be an issue but otherwise I think having both is nice.  Hell, a friend locally got me an extra FU one, so I'm really gonna have 3 of these, but I'm ok with that. 

And mine stand ok...  Not fantastically, but I'm willing to be forgiving due to sheer weight (plus I dig the leathery skin feel of it, and without that it may weigh less but the materials wouldn't work quite as well I think).

I dig it...  It's an upgrade.  An expensive one, but an upgrade.

I'd like to think that we might start to see some beast resculpts too, but I think we kind of lucked out with regards to the Rancor - the Force Unleashed version paved the way for us to get a new Jabba's Palace version. I think if Shaak Ti was going to attack the Apprentice with a bunch of Dewbacks instead of Rancors, then we'd have a new Dewback from the game and then eventually be getting a new Dewback w/Sandtrooper. I doubt Hasbro is going to start resculpting the OT beasties.

It would be great if they gave us a new Tauntaun, but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for one.

I am in no matter what but may wait to see if they mark it down a month later like the TFU version. This looks really great, hopefully they will not give Luke a burnt hand as it has not happened yet for that scene. It's an easy fix but that Luke is so tan it's hard to find a hand that matches.

Hopefully its more stable than the TFU version. Those hips joints are way too loose.
