The throne looks pretty beefy in the art.   8)

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.

They must have a thing for Jabba and his goons.  I kinda wish it was in a window type package, but then again - I never saw any of their previous dancer/musician packs that weren't damaged.

The artwork looks good/promising.  I hope the actual product matches up well.

Judging by the front panel art what is highlitghted hopefully is what is included: Jabba, Oola, Throne, Pillows, Hooka, Salacious. If that is the case this will beone of the best SW items ever! I am very excited about this one this one has been a long time coming! C'mon, where is the back of the box picture???

Yeah, this is one I will buy an extra one of as well to keep packaged. I hope Tungohri gets some of those Oolas in, that looks like an amazing figure!

Color me a little disappointed... looks like Jabba is just basically a statue with a pose-able tail. Yeah he looks good, but will he match the articulation of his Clone Wars counterpart from last year? I'll wait until we get better pictures to make a call.

He didn't exactly move much.  Other than his arms, what articulation are you really looking for?

Hey, he moved a lot in TPM and ANH  ;)

I dunno, I obviously want wrist, elbow and shoulder articulation, but I think they could also do some creative stuff with the eyes and mouth. I guess neck/waist articulation wouldn't matter on a ROTJ Jabba but I'm kind of an articulation snob at this point.

I'm still wondering what those locker/panel-looking things are on the side of the packaging. But the packaging/image is beautiful, and I'm fairly pleased with the Oola. And has Hasbro said that the dais will be included?

I really don't care if Salacious Crumb is not included, since we got him in 2007 w/ C-3PO. And I'm not happy at all that it's a strictly-Walmart release! There's no Walmart within a 1.5-hours radius from where I live! :(

If He comes with everything on the front of the  box, it will exceed my expectations.

 I'm confident that the sculpt will be good, but I'm still a little apprehensive about how the paint job will turn out.
