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.

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.

I have to agree with you here Brian. I'm going to pass on this set. I really only wanted the dais. The Nikto is cool, but won't look right next to realistic figure. So I'll hope for the dais to be rereleased in a realistic set.

I have no doubt that the Nikto Guard will see release at some point in the future. It's a nice looking figure that looks to be pretty far along in development (if not done) - so even if it's not until 2010, I'm sure we'll get that figure eventually. Heck, we haven't seen all of the CW waves for 2009 yet either.

I'd think at some point they'd find a way to get that Nikto out there... I hope so at least.  It's one of the few CW figures that I like the looks of.

It lacks the Nikto figure. The Jabba figure is very animated style, depicted a s a cartoon, this is why his mouth seems to be traced with ruler, a lot angular (from some viewpoint, his mouth needs to ve more curved)

I wonder if the Jabba set from ROTJ would come with a slave Leia, and Oola, Salacius crumb and Bib Fortuna.

Anyway, if they release the rotj Jabba, Hasbro must resculpt the hutt throne.

I just want the accessories form this set. I don't want/need Jabba or the droid. Problem is, unless Hasbro rereleases this in a realistic set, I doubt I"ll be able to get just the accessories. And I'm sure as heck not going to eBay for it (at least initially) because it's likely that the bids will climb to half or more of what the whole set would cost anyway. I don't think the accessories are worth that much, IMO.

Since I just want the droid, all we need to do is find someone that just wants the Jabba and we're all set!

I'll admit that's pretty unlikely, however, since most people who'd want the Jabba would want the same dais pieces you want.

Really? I'm talking about the side structure where the hooka pipe and frog are. I never knew this was done before. If I had, I'd have bought it just for those accessories.

Yep, from back in the Saga days.

So I opened up my Jabba BP last night and discovered something kind of cool about the CW version of the big slug....

Moving Jabba's arms up or down moves his lower jaw to make it look like he's talking/laughing or something.  It was kind of neat to see that he had that sort of flexibility.  Now you can make him laugh at Anakin or eat a frog or whatever you want. 

I'm sure all you action feature haters will hate it, but I thought it was sort of a cool deal. :)
