I'd love to know the size specs for the throne, vs. the vintage one.

Sandtroopers neglected to do a side by side with the vinty version in their recent write up.  Hopefully that will come soon?

They posted a front view comparo their forums though:

Judging by this pic at JTA, it looks like this set will be $34.99.

Yeah, hell...  for $35 I may buy 2 so I can replace SE Jabba with Han using this new one.

That's a great price really.

Every pic of Oola has her titty out, so someone should maybe fix that.  :-X

It's very Janet Jackson-ish of her, that's all I'm sayin'. :)

Gotta tip the hat there...  She's struggling and a knocker is flopping out.  Hasbro's getting a better eye for detail I guess.

I agree, it's among the better things seen thus far this year.  I'm really contemplating 2 now too...  A mobile Jabba and a stationary ROTJ one.  Hasbro knocked socks off with this.  It's the AT-ST of the year to me in 2010, with the new Snowspeeder right with it.

Yeah, I'm thinking about getting a couple of these now too, with the lower (surprising) price.  Looks like a great set, and I really hope - being a WM exclusive - that it isn't too tough to find.  I had decent luck with last year's stuff, so hopefully this year will be ok too.

WM's always hit and miss near me.  The Droid Factory sets were actually fairly scarce here, even at the inflated price.  The AT-ST was common, as was the Dewback for the most part.  I hope these are abundant.  It's such a nice presentation, I really hope it gets its due with a good distribution.

That's kind of how things were here too.  The Droid Factory sets basically hit once and not much after that, even at the $17 price.  The AT-STs and Dewbacks hit here a little later than many, but hung around for a bit it seemed.  Prior to last year though, we were real spotty with exclusives as well.  Never saw things like the A-Wing at any of our local stores as far as I know.
