I just picked up a case of Jabba's (2 per) using the UPC #. I called two stores, the second had it in stock and she pulled them for me. I drove to the store and picked them up. Piece of cake. So I can confirm my earlier post that these are in IL.

I will shoot some pics shortly, he is awesome!

I've never tried it before but do you have the UPC # handy?  I'm not going balls out this weekend with the entire line, but I'd be happy just to have Jabba by my side, and to get the WM headache over with.

I've heard that Jabba has a very rubbery body, and that the inside is hollow - similar to the talking Yoda back in 2004. Is this true?

Yes.

A couple of quick review notes:
- While the body is rubbery he is great. Those that were bashing this are overreacting.
- The Ultra Jabbas tongue fits good. If you slightly snip the peg it really fits perfect!
- I am using the Ultra Hooka/Stand. The new one does not have the frog, does not open up and the stand is warped from the ties so it does not lay flat. Both of the ones I have have the same problem..
- I added the Saga Padme Chain for my Slave Leia.
- Crumb is a 100% repack with some better paint ops on the mouth. Those that reported some new tooling are dead wrong.

Enjoy!

I picked this up today in Northern Texas...the above pic illustrates the one issue I have with this whole set: the awful paint job for Jabba himself. That said, I did a nice brown wash over the 'skin' portion and it really helps the detail pop out without looking as bland. Hasbro put soo much detail into the set as a whole, its a pity that the paint apps suffered on the big lizard himself

I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass - but are we sure this is the number?

I called four WalMarts this morning and all four of them told me that this number wasn't even in their system.

Well, that saves me the trouble of PMing you that number if our Wal-Marts aren't recognizing it. What's w/ these UPCs?

No sure if this is related, but when I bought mine yesterday I first tried to scan it with the Upc bar code - it told me to 'see a service rep' or something, but when I went to check it out at the front, no problems.

Yes, it's how I obtained my set. But be sure to let them know it's the UPC number. They said the same thing when I called but I let them know to look under the UPC code, they usually look under the item number.

Man...I can't wait to get this set. When is the official release date for this? Has anyone heard if it will be available online?

Yeah, I checked a couple of Wal-Marts this weekend, and no signs here yet.  In fact, really no Star Wars at all at our closest store aside from some older Transformers.

REGARDING UPC

The box in the above photo shows a UPC of 5356950286.
I work at Walmart and usually just the ten numbers will give us a reading on our portable Gemini computer inventory units.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
The 65356950285 number is the one that comes up as active in the Gemini system.  But wierd thing, it shows up as being not on file locally, even though the main WalMart computer (Bentonville) shows it as active.  This will most probably change from store to store as they start getting them in.  Knowing Wally's screwed up distribution system, I say "GOOD LUCK" to my fellow hunters.  The window of opportunity may be short in some areas and longer in others.

So that's what they're called?  Huh.  I had no clue.
