I never noticed his tat in the movie...will have to watch for as well.  Was Jabba a sailor at some point? 

Was it ever determined if that gokoracing guy has a packaging sample or the packaging with the actual product inside?

I'd say it's the complete deal considering Oola is packed in there. Plus, Spice teased that he was getting this shipped to him from gokoracing for the full reveal.

It's the small details (very much like Jabba's tat) that make me love to watch Star Wars over and over again. I was watching AOTC yesterday and noticed so many things that I didn't notice before in the Coruscant chase/Cantina sequences. It's very cool to discover all these things.

Not only was it in the movie, the original Kenner toy had it in 1983.  And Hasbro (and modern Kenner) forgot it pretty consistently in the modern line, despite also being featured prominently in things like the Shadows of the Empire comics.

(I complained to anyone who'd listen that the next Jabba needs the tattoo.  I'm glad to see it, you probably guessed.)

Gee, I own that thing and never noticed. Not very observant, am I?

Mega awesome!
Count me in for two! I love how they got the eyes right. He is a little too green but they slammed this out of the park. It's good to know that the hooka is missing the creature he eats is missing, I will be sure to keep that before I ditch the Ultra version. I can also ditch my painted vintage throne.

I hope this is a summer exclusive and not a late fall one, I want this now!

How did Jabba get the tail wound? I know its there because Crumb is picking at it in the movie but how did it get there in the first place?

I wanna know the price.  Because this, the Kit Fisto Jedi Starfighter, Kul Teska, Jodo Kast, and who knows what else all seem to be pretty close to ready-to-go...

I think we were guessing that not all that long ago...  My bet is in the same price-range as the AT-ST.  It's a sizable set when all is said and done, at least in this day and age.

Nice design on the toy...  Pretty poseable looking, plus the no-show tail jointing is pretty slick.  Kudos to Hasbro on that. 

I think the color's surprisingly accurate, actually.  If you see lighted shots of Jabba when filming isn't taken place, he's one green freak.  Perhaps another Hoth-Han-ish coat debate? :)

I like that we're getting all the throw pillows.  :)  Color me odd for being into that junk, but I wasn't counting on getting all the crap he's laying on.  That's pretty nifty.

That looks pretty awesome.  Love the wheels on the bottom.

I still don't get the wheels.  I get the Rancor thing, but wheels - on the toy?  Is the new Jabba w/throne going to race a sandspeeder or Podracer or something?

It rolled in the movie (forward, over the Rancor Pit, so he could watch Luke getting eaten more closely).  So the rolling feature's actually accurate.

I think it looks pretty good.  I didn't really care one way or the other about the pillows, I plan on adding my own touches for that anyway.  I was actually planning on customizing a vintage set into something like this until we got the announcement that a new Jabba was coming.

Over all, I think I like this set.  I just don't think I'm going to like the price.  And it's debatable if my WM store will ever stock it anyway.
