Now that's worth paying a few more bucks for. It smokes the TFU version!

Yeah, I'm going to say a tad too much.

Wow!  That is pretty snazzy.  I will probably skip it but it will be tempting.

Exactly. It's like he has a skin disease.

Way over-weathered.

The new photo of Jabba´s Rancor looks great. Hasbro has done a nice paint job. We see several tones, shades, and appreciate a detailed texture on the monster skin.

Yeah, it's pretty amazing the strides Hasbro has made regarding weathering.  The POTF2 version had just a few brown stripes painted on, but this version looks almost drybrushed.

Beautiful paint glaze the new Rancor has.  Looking forward to a nice bone with this set.

Me too... I still buy a few PT figures, but now I am VERY selective and can't remember the last clone I bought... same for PT vehicles.  But this... this is amazing.  Seeing this pic makes me want to dig out the old one from storage and see how inferior it is.  When I bought the old one (and the Bantha at the same time) I was very excited and thrilled with it.  Now I can give it to one of my nephews without a second thought.  Funny, when Hasbro released the Bantha again a few years ago, it took a step backwards in quality (I didn't even buy one) and the Rancor took a running leap forward.

Only reason I picked up TFU rancor was to make it look like the Jabba one...scratch that since I can't pait it nearly as well as that is.
Thankfully I only paid $10 for the TFU Rancor.

Legacy Rancor Help with Payment via website
« Reply #43 on: February 1, 2009, 08:56 PM »
Here is my dilemma.  My wife and I recenctly cut up our Credit Cards.  Can  anyone out there pick me up one of these.  We have a buttload of funds in our paypal account and for some reason I thought that Target accepted paypal payments.  Basically you would purchase via the website and use my address for shipping.   I have no prob paying beforehand and my feedback on the site is flawless.  Please PM me if you can help.  Thanks in advance.  Jim

Not to derail or what not, but the Rancor will be in stores in a couple of months. IF you give it some time, you can probably get one without worrying about shipping, and perhaps on clearance to boot!
