I think for an animated version it looks pretty good. It gives me high hopes for the OT set.

I think it looks pretty good.  Although the arms do look a little scrawny.

Let's hope that when Hasbro does a non-animated ROTJ version, they actually do the whole ******* dais this time around.  Sorry to be so crass about it, but Hasbro's been doing the modern SW toys since 1995, this makes at least the fifth different time they've released Jabba in some form, and still no actual dais.  This is essentially a deluxe figure with a bonus protocol droid figure thrown in, and they'll charge the now-standard 22 bucks for a Battle Pack for it.  Alongside the Yavin pack, this is a ripoff.

I can see them giving that Jabba a new upper body/head and selling it as an ROTJ version.

Looking at this I thought the same thing

Hmm, that's a possibility.

I'm thinking about getting this set. Really only for the hooka and possibly the droid, so I wouldn't need the Jabba. If anyone would want to make a deal for the Jabba, LMK by PM.

That makes perfect sense - though the body seems to big for the CW version.

Yep. I won't be pressing to get this set. ANd if it looks like it's shelf warming then I'll definitely wait.  However if it seems to be flying off the shelves, I may bite on this. Just depends.

I want a dias for Jabba.  That was one of the coolest things about the vintage version IMO - not that it leaves any hope for a new one for the Legacy edition though.  Nice looking set though for what it is......where's the "tongue" action though for this dude?  Mouth is too far open.

I just hope that Nikto comes with the set.  Some pictures include him, some don't.  I like it either way, but two figures are always better than one.

There's a part of me that is starting to think we'll get a dais of some sort when the OT version of Jabba is released.  They keep saying "worth the wait" when discussing that one, and I'm not sure why they would bother with the alternate reclining legs on the upcoming Slave Leia figure if she didn't have something to sit on.  Plus, they might be able to justify it more with two different Jabba's that could sit on it.
