6" Black Series Deluxe Line
« on: October 30, 2013, 03:05 PM »
I found these listings on Hasbro's Customer Service page:



Notable are the 6-inch Jabba the Hutt and 6-inch Speeder Bike listings. The Speeder Bike was previously confirmed, but could Jabba be a cancelled or unannounced item?

Jabba isn't cancelled...  I can attest to that.  Not yet.  :-X  ;)

Oh man, I'm totally down for Jabba, provided he comes with his dais.

I have to admit, Jabba was one of the larger things I thought they might get to eventually in this line (if successful), but it is a little surprising that it might be on the way next year.  I hope all these rumors today are true, because it sounds pretty great.  I wonder if we will get the dais and all the trimmings (similar to the last 3 3/4" version), and if so, what it will cost.

How much was 3.75" Jabba w/Dais?  I forget now...  I'd say double that if it's a set like that?  Seems sort of likely.

I believe the Wal-Mart Jabba was $35-$40. If the dais is too expensive for this 6-inch release, a carbonite Han accessory along with Salacious mini-fig would suffice.

See, the dais interests me for purely nostalgic reasons - don't care a bit for yet another carbonite block.

They did promise that both halves of the SDCC exclusive set would be available down the line... so re-releasing the Carbonite block with a Jabba makes a ton of sense.

That said, Jabba without the dais would be a huge mistake.

This seems like something that would be an exclusive somewhere, hopefully not Amazon or K-Mart. Wally, Target, or TRU would be ideal though. That's gonna be a big hunk of plastic.

As noted, Jabba IS coming. :)

As is the Speederbike w/Scout, which sounds pretty impressive as a display piece itself.

That said, no Dais was shown with Jabba...  I figured Jabba wasn't going to come with one.  It's just not feasible cost-wise, though the devil on my shoulder did mention one was designed/mocked up.  So in theory the idea was there at least, but the cost was prohibitive for such a thing to actually happen.

That said, I have no doubts 6" Jabba will be impressive all by himself.

No dais though.......  yet.   :D

There were hints that a Dais/Salacious Crumb type set could come in the future, but not right now.

Wave 1 - Speederbike with Scout Trooper and Dais-less Jabba the Hutt.
Wave 2 - Beast/Creature focused, to be revealed at SDCC!

Lots of hints on a trooper-less Dewback and some type of Tauntaun/Rider sets, but nothing confirmed.

Also, the price point for this line is, as expected, $40.  Like Jesse said, Jabba with Dais was in the $60-80 range and they were worried no one would carry it outside of an exclusive, but they need numbers to tool it so doing it as an exclusive was out which meant no dais for now.

It makes me kind of wonder - how many folks are really going to be excited for an accessory-less Jabba at $40?  He looks awesome... but I can already hear the complaining about value at $40 since most folks were expecting a Dais or carbonite han or crumb or whatever.
