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

Walmart

WOW!
Sandtroopers got the goods on this.:

This is just too awesome, they have finally nailed Jabba, his throne and even Oola in one shot. Hopefully Crumb will get a better paint job than the TAC version too!

Nice to see that Jabba is removable from the base   :D  Looks very nice.  Not sure why it needs wheels, but I can't wait to pick this set up.

It needs wheels 'cause in ROTJ, when Luke and the pig guard fell through the trap door, the throne rolled forward so Jabba could get a good look at the carnage below.

That's a very, very nice looking set. Kudo's to Hasbro. I think I'll be very pleased with this purchase.

It needs wheels so it can almost run over Lando!  (Watch closely.)

Yeah, this thing is awesome.  

This isn't really a critique, but while I'm happpy with Oola, wouldn't this appeal to a larger audience (kids..) if the pack-in was Luke, or a Gammorean, or even Han with carbonite block?

Now that I'm a parent, I might look at that and think..."Do I really want my kid getting a slave girl figure who has a collar around her neck?"  I consider myslef pretty liberal, but there are some questions I don't want to answer.

Plus, how else is he to get around Wal-Mart unless he has his hove-around?

I'm guessing this one's less aimed at kids (if at all) really, but a different pack-in would probably have made it more popular with kids.  It seems very squarely aimed at the adult market though...  kind of like the AT-ST that, besides the extra gun, seemed pretty much for adults between the price and the complexity and such.  At least that's my impression.

I wonder if all the stuff comes off the dais?  Is it solid or hollow underneath like the old one?  Jabba looks fantastic, and sports a good number of arm joints it appears.  Love the "brand" tattoo.  I'm pretty pleased, and I think I'm going to move my current ROTJ Jabba to my Docking Bay 94 spot.

Oola wasn't high on my list of resculpts, but she does look really well done.  A much better looking sculpt IMO.

I'll say, as I often find myself having to say, God bless Rebelscum's "icruise".

Is the brand tattoo in the movie or just an easter egg for those in the know? Don't recall seeing it in the movies.
