Definitely looks pretty cool, and I'm really glad we're seeing this on the way.  I'm still impressed with many of these items where the POTF2 versions aren't necessarily all that bad, but how far sculpting/paint/etc. has come since those days.  This looks like an amazing version of the Rancor.  I honestly wouldn't mind seeing all-new versions of some of the other OT beasts - like the Taun Taun and Dewback.

No doubt in my mind that the photo is doctored a little, but I'm confident it'll still be painted well.  Definitely a purchase for me.

You can never have enough Rancors count me in for another one.

Spot on. The lighting and contrast sure add to the coolness.

Is anyone still seeing the FU rancors on clearance at their local stores? I haven't seen any of these, even at full price.

I remember seeing piles of these on clearance for $9.98.

Even above half off these sold out around Pittsburgh...  A buddy got me one for $20 and I still owe him.  I feel blessed to have gotten one that cheap.  Let me justify a 2nd Rancor to pummel the Empire with.

Is the Luke Skywalker figure that comes with the rancor the same as the 30th anniversary Jedi Luke Skywalker figure?

Looks like it. One thing we should expect though, is that it will be a re-pack.

Bigger Rancor in a well painted diorama.

I think this jedi Luke should be improved with a piece of softgoods on his back, that is a new and complete cloth vest.

Got a new photo of the Jabba Rancor... 


Clicky to check it out!

A very sharp piece...  Probably one of the more desired of 2008 I'd guess, considering how many have soured on prequal stuff.
