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.

Thanks Jayson. Well, I know I have that set, so looks like I'll be passing on this altogether now.

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

Do you feel that you got your $23.99 + tax money's worth on Jabba?

Yes, I feel like I got my $14.99 + tax money's worth from the Jabba/TC-70 set (or at least I will when I return one of my extra TRU sale BPs to Target).

Smart thinking Jeff.  Wish I would have planned that out, but these were still stomachable at $21.99 when that sale was going on.  Picked up Jabba and the Yavin set on the way home and there seems to be something missing in the left hand corners of each over-priced set.  Hmmmm...what could it be?   ::)

Picked up two of these this morning and I have to say, I'm quite excited to get home from work and open one up.

I REALLY like how the Animated Jabba turned out!

Saw it today at Wal-Mart.  It looked pretty damn good.  Although it makes me clamor all that more for a nice ROTJ version :-[

I finally opened up this Jabba.  And I was pleasantly surprised by the "action feature".  Jabba's arms are linked to an articulated mouth.  Move the arms, and you can make Jabba "talk".  I think it's actually a pretty cool feature.

I wonder how long we'll have to wait before we get Ziro.

I hope we do and it's soon. I would love a different Hutt.

Yeah, in the Q&A for swcollector.com, Hasbro all but said that they are looking at repainting Jabba as Ziro, and doing a droid as a pack-in, which would be great since I *love* that all Ziro's droids have those cool stripes all over them.

These things are stacking up everywhere at my local Targets with a few smatterings of the Yavin & AT-TE pack, but WM seems to have missed the boat on this round as there is not a single bp in stock within 10 miles from here - not that I care though....was looking for leaky ROTF crap.

I've seen a few reports of these starting to sit quite a bit at various stores (Targets mainly now it seems).  These were the last to sell at our local Target as well, although I do think there was only one left the last time I was there.  I'm a little surprised that more kiddos don't want this set, but maybe parents just don't want to drop $25 for Jabba and a droid.  Hopefully poor sales won't hurt the chances of the "ultimate" realistic Jabba set hitting some day.
