He'll be a regular release.  Rumors are that there will be an exclusive version with Salacious Crumb and the dais.  Other rumors that the Dias will be cardboard.

I like both of these, but will hold out for sales similar to the main 6" line.  You can get most of the figures still for $10-12 instead of the original $20.  Biker Scout and Jabba should be available more in the $25-30 range.  The figures look excellent, the packaging looks like a Dollar Store special.

I agree with people's thoughts that the speeder bikes are going to go fast.  I'd probably be willing to pay $40 for it. 

I'm still not sold on the Jabba at $40 though.  I'll have to see it in person before I pull the trigger, but have a feeling this one is going to shelf warm and be available on Amazon, etc. for closer to $20.

I am really stoked to see a Tauntaun, dewback, wampa, etc.  Those would be cool, and I think probably would have been a better choice than a dias and accessory free Jabba.

If Jabba can't come with a dais at retail, it's going to hurt with all that open space in the box.  If anything, throw in Salacious Crumb and/or Oola.  The Speederbike definitely looks like you'd get more for your money than Jabba.  It would have been nice to have Jabba a bit more SA, too so that he isn't always in a 'sitting' position and you could have his tail behind him as if he were moving around like in ANH.  At least that's what I noticed by glancing at the photo... I could be wrong.

What's funny about this is Hasbro's overall assortment choices.  They had Boba as a SDCC Exclusive and he quickly sold out.  Then they put him in the main line series 2 and he quickly sells out, but they double up with Han in S2 and S3 instead of Boba. 

Now, they will have Jabba as a SDCC Exclusive, but I would argue Jabba might not be quite as popular as Boba.  Just a hunch.  So people will have a shot at Jabba Excluisve and Jabba retail, but the more desirable figure that would probably sell better outright and will be bought up by army builders is limited to just 1 per case at retail. 

So yes, we will have a massive shortage of Biker Scouts and Jabba's litering shelves and online stores everywhere.  This isn't rocket science Hasbro.  Come on.

I agree with the massive shortage of biker scouts.  Other than Greedo and Han, I rarely see anything from this line.
