This is at the top of my wanted list - cannot wait for this one.  Has it been stated yet the price or the retailer that is going to be selling it?

You wont see this unitl SDCC. (You may see some leaks before hand)


Nice work JACK!  Is the black material foamcore?

This is still work in progress as I have a lot still to add (More paint detail, lights and other details) but look for a new thread with this in the custom section soon:




I tried to leave some breathing room for the new dais in case it's bigger than the vintage.

That's the REAL Sy Snootles! I hope Hasbro makes an updated version of her one gay. I hate the looney toon version. It would be nice if they brought her back for the upcoming blue ray version. Doubtful, they will probably make that scene more cringe inducing.....

I hope we see some leaks of this Jabba set soon......

I CANNOT wait for this set!! I am pleasanly pleased that Oola will make it, and that Jabba is finally getting love, but I'm disappointed that - 1. It'll be an exclusive rather than a general release, and 2. that the price point will most likely be high. I doubt it'll be part of the BPs assortment, meaning that it might be more expensive as an exclusive, but I do hope that it comes in special Vintage Collection packaging,

I think Oola is fine the way she is. What we need is a new version of Bib Fortuna. I hate the pull over smock.

I hate to say it but I think that looks like...well not very good either.  I use the vintage one instead for display. I would be all for a new one.

I agree. I think that one equally sucks. How about some cloth and a better looking expression? The OTC one could barely move.

Wait, wait...OTC or Saga2? I could've sworn that the OTC one was a repaint of the POTF2 one, and the new sculpt was from the first Saga2 wave..?

Either way, yeah, a neo-vintage resculpt would be very appreciated...especially if they gave him a vintage-y coat, one of the best cloth robes from back then IMO. I have never been able to get the "new sculpt" to stand on his own.

Brainfart: I said OTC, but linked to the Saga2 one.  :P

It also appears to be a WalMart exclusive - I hadn't been aware of that before.

I'm glad they didn't go with an easily damaged window box for Jabba, the only product you can see is the Oola figure - and it looks fantastic.

Oola looks great! I really want to see the product it's hard to tell from the package as they have what appears to be a a painting. It looks like a Salacious Crumb might be in there too which would be awesome. I am almost done my dio as I mounted the Taun Taun head and am hooking up the lights this week. This picture motivates me to finish it!

I hope we start seeing more leaks soon!
