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.

Clicky to bid on this already...  But don't piss around because it's only good for less than a day.  I doubt it's the last one Viperskingdom puts up on Ebay though.

I spotted the 6" Jabba at Target this afternoon, but the Biker Scout sets were gone. I wasn't too impressed with Jabba. This is definitely an instance where I am torn on the whole 6" scale due to both price and detail. IMO the 2010 Jabba looks just as good as the 6" version, plus it had the throne, railing, a figure, and other bits for $5 less. I am still planning to pick up the Scout set, and I look forward to seeing how it stacks up against the 4" TRU exclusive version.

Picked up my biker scout just now at Target. They had both plus Jabba. I like Jabba and will be getting him, I'm just hoping I can score one if HTS ever releases them

I guess paint apps horrors strike this line, too.  Yakface posted a picture (from Imperial Shipyards) of someone who had a Scout without a painted lens.  That's gotta suck

As of this morning 3 of our local Targets were suddenly showing this DPCI in stock (count of 3) so I hit 2 of them on the way home and neither could find them in the store room. Odd. At least one of the places confirmed they are planning to do a reset next week so maybe then.  :(

From both my past Target employment knowledge and what I was told at a couple local Targets this week many of them have "trapped" them on a transition pallet in back that will all be new stuff for that specific aisle when it resets so the likelihood you'll get an employee to rummage through a pallet for them isn't too high.

I got similar info from a friend.  Most stores in our area already have the new 6" Deluxe as well as the new wave of 6" basic figures on pallets that are designated for the next reset.  And that reset is loosely scheduled around tomorrow, August 3rd.

Sounds like they can start building the new pogo as of Sunday, but they have the whole week to get it done.  So, good idea to start looking on the 3rd, but don't be surprised if the reset doesn't happen until later in the week.

I work for Target, the earliest they will reset the aisle is Monday. Since this is our Holiday expansion set, it involves quite a few moves. Complete aisles are moving. It really depends on your stores plan. Your right about showing on hands but no one can find it, it's palletized in the back room. Some stores were really light on toys and put the merchandise out as soon as it came in for presentation sake.
