Apparently the .com ones were relaxed pre fight with Luke and the in store ones are sweaty during fight with Luke versions.

Someone pointed out that JediTempleArchives has a couple comparison photos.

Looks like the "dull" paintjob has a dull white wash, while the "glossy" version has more of a greenish wash.

That's weird.  Here's a movie still:



I'd say the store ones are the closer ones in accuracy...  There's a shine to the actual puppet giving it a leathery look, and it's got the greenish hue to it also.

Hmmm...I like the first edition better simply because he looks "scarier/rougher" with that wash.  The glossy one looks like a shiny turd IMO.  Wish they could have somehow combined the two finishes - in a less glossy way, but oh well.

I saw these for the first time at Target today...didn't have enough money to pick one up but I did notice at least at my store they have Rancors with the duller paint scheme. From the pictures I've seen, I think I'd rather get the other version. Good to know these are out though....

It does have teeth...  which, if I were to see that, I'd probably poop again.

I saw a couple of these tucked on the bottom shelf at Target yesterday.  Star Wars has been moved to the "back/end" of the action figure aisle now, as things have been reset with all the Transformers stuff.  You would almost miss these Rancors on first glance, at least at our store.  I don't know how well it will sell, but it would be too bad if it didn't do well - I think it is one of the nicer toys Hasbro has done in the past few years, particularly among the beasts.

Definitely a nice improvement over the POTF2 version. A great purchase IMO.

Got the glossy version yesterday.  If I can find the more dull finish I'll pick that one up and return this one.

I've been to four Targets since yesterday and no sign of it.  Also, no signs of the RC droids or shelf tags for either.

That's weird. You'd think all Targets would want the new set up so they could sell the new Transformer toys.

Target's insanely slow with resets I've noticed.  I have no idea why but in my neck of the woods it's rare that we're set up when the rest of the world is.  Especially my nearest (and the newest in the area) Target, which often times has waited to put things out till they're almost ready for clearance.  That happened last year with the 2-packs.  Other stores tend to be at least a little quicker.

That Target, ironically, is one of the only ones in the area that did the full reset so far though and it was the first I think.  That's a rare occurance though.

When I scored my Rancor there was no shelf tag anywhere near the SW stock.  But then I got mine out of a case that was sitting on a freight cart in the toy section.  I figure it was destined to be put on an endcap somewhere.
