SDCC'14 Exclusive 6" Jabba the Hutt's Throne Room Set
« on: February 15, 2014, 09:30 PM »
NO Dais for Jabba shown...  that jives with what we were told here at JD.  However, and I'll put it out there, that a 6" Scale Dais was at the very least, designed/mocked up in some capacity...  Too expensive for the assortment, obviously, but the idea is there.  :-X  :-*

I'm not totally surprised.  ;)

Slightly though, at least where it ultimately landed.

There were pretty open hints about it but no one was willing to come right out and say it, which is why I said...

There were hints that a Dais/Salacious Crumb type set could come in the future

Either they got someone to confirm it on the record or they are just willing to risk being wrong and tossing it out there as confirmed.

Seems like a kind of dick move to make it a SDCC exclusive to me, but then again so does making the Carbo Han one.   :-\  I just knew the Dais was mocked up basically, but cost was playing some issue because it's so big and people were already po'd about cost of the basic figures.

Any word on whether you'll be able to order one if you can't attend SDCC?  I didn't bother with the Fett / Han because they said both pieces would be available later, so I don't recall how accessible the exclusive was if you couldn't attend.

So no point in buying the single carded Jabba then?

If recent history of the past few years holds, there will be a brief 35-second period after SDCC where they will be up on HasbroToyShop for order...   then there will be a second 7-second window when they re-post it after credit card declines and inventory reset.  Good luck!

What did Fett wind up going for?  $300 may be asking price from Hasbro. :P

I think they were $50 at the convention and more like $150 afterwards.  I'm guessing we can double all of that, $100 at the show, $250 to $300 on the after market.

I wouldn't be shocked at those prices, especially because I'd imagine anyone who did wind up with a Fett may desperately want the Jabba/Dais if that pans out.

Seriously though, if anyone doesn't collect the 6" line and finds themselves at SDCC and might be able to help me with a Jabba...  :-\  :-*

I never pursued the Carbonite set, and while the dais won't stop me from collecting this line, it will stop me from buying Jabba. Until he goes on clearance after dragging down this aspect of the line and closing the door on future 6 inch deluxe pieces. I would not have attempted him at retail without the dais. I understand that they're splitting the difference, and either way it's a lose-lose for hasbro since without it he's unattractive and with it he's too expensive. But I don't see a lot of people dropping $40 on him when they can't complete the rest of the set up, and I see a lot of Jabbas backing up as a lot of speeders fly off the shelf.
