If it comes what's shown on the front I will be really happy as well. I would not mind a really detailed Crumb.

I hope this throne is not too huge. I left a fair amount of buffer room in my custom display for it to hopefully accommodate this piece.
Here is my cheap plug as I started a thread for my Jabba Palace display:

I'm intrigued what all the figure will come with...  Oola looks good from what you can see, but the toy's tough to tell on since the box is so photoshopped.  Will he be articulated?  Will it just be his tail?  What's the deal with the dais?  Those are all things I'm curious about before I go ga-ga for it, but I'm pretty pleased regardless... 

To be honest though i'd have sacrified a new Oola for other stuff I think...  I am pretty ok with Oola as she was.  So basically what I mean is, if the Jabba figure or throne or anything suffered because of the Oola figure, I'd have ditched Oola I guess.  So yeah, I'm hopeful nothing got cut from the set due to her.

Wonder what price will be?

I'm guessing in the $50-$60 range.

At least he won't have a Speederbike shooting out of his ass.   ;D

That's my guess as well, but I'm leaning more towards $50.

I'm hoping a little less than that, but $50 seems right.  I'm hoping maybe closer to $40.

This is a fun game...  If we had a giveaway right now it'd be interesting to make it a prize for whoever comest closest without going over. :P  Rod Roddey (RIP) eat your heart out.

Even if it's pricey, at least I only need one.  :P

I still have my '83-'84 era Jabba the Hutt with dias from back in the day. Better articualtion for Jabba, bendy tail, ball joins on arms and torso and better deco would be nice. Never had an Ooh-La fig; wonder if it'll come with a pop-out boob? ;)

Give the man some respect. It's "Roddy". Good lord, man.

I don't know that the Oola looks horribly different than the one we've had for years, and as JJ said, that one was pretty good to begin with. But yeah, excitement and stuff.

I was on Scum last night and I saw in the Jabba thread the guy that posted the first pic of the Jabba box posting that he was supposedly going to pick up a special package from the post office this morning - eluding to it being Jabba.

Perhaps we may see more pics today???

edit:  turned out to be a load of hooey.  the guy says he is getting it, but the package he was receiving today didn't wasn't his Jabba package.  So supposedly he is still on is way to him.

Amazing! It makes me want to pull my pics of my backdrop display. I love how you actually made the playset and built it to adapt to a real Rancor Pitt when you get around to making it. Very impressive!

Wal-Mart Exclusive?  Jabba + Dias + Oola minimum package contents?  $65.99 - at the low end.

Is this a Toys R Us exclusive? Or Walmart? Those two stores always get the best exclusives.
