I think you are right on Darby. I have a feeling if you don't get your hands on the Speeder in the first couple of cases a retail store gets, you won't get another chance because the Jabbas will hold the shelf space going forward.

Could the package for Jabba be any more obvious something is wrong? There should be a word bubble with Jabba saying "Where's my stuff?" in that space.

This is terrible idea, unless the dais is offered on its own later. Why not just offer the whole shebang as a TRU exclusive instead with no regular release of Jabba?

TRU may not bite.  That comes up a lot...  they have had a LOT of stuff they've shopped around for a long time and nobody bites.  Funeral Pyre Vader is a prime example.  There are more too, trust me.  Some get out eventually but retailers are very gunshy I think.

There are conflicting stories regarding what exactly is exclusive for SDCC 2014. Paul from JTA was sure that it's Jabba with dais and Salacious Crumb, but later on Sat. night it was said to be something much smaller in both size and cost.  - Salacious Crumb and cardboard dias only.

And this is why I'm not going to bother getting worked up until it's official.

A cardboard dais is a waste of time.

I see a lot of Jabbas backing up as a lot of speeders fly off the shelf.

+1  Can't believe these are 1 per case.  They should have shipped them 3 per case and gone 2:1 Scouts to Jabba.  Hasbro just doesn't know their consumers at all.

Yeah, no sense getting worked up over it (not that I'm buying 6") since the information is "fuzzy" anyway.  A cardboard one would theoretically get a lot less groaning I'd imagine.

A "real" one was immediately looked at as expensive.   :-X

If they don't make a legitimate one, I might try to make one myself...

I've been working with insulation sheets a lot lately...  A military collector buddy of mine turned me onto some easy building-methods with that stuff, and I've been pleased with what I've turned out.  Simplistic things so far, and a school project for one of the boys, but enough positives I could see using this for a lot more complex projects I'd like to do or have had on my table for a bit.

The problem with Jabba's Dais is of course things like the heads on the front...  Those would be tricky to do in 6" scale short of being a good sculptor/caster.

I'll just repost what I said earlier...

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.

The hinting I heard was something along the lines of 'wouldn't it be neat to see a Dais with Salacious Crumb to go along with Jabba... sometime... in the near future... somewhere' or something like that.

I assumed it meant as a basic $40 release, but the SDCC thing fits too so it made sense when I read it...  that's the problem with hints I guess - open to interpretation.  :-\

So... the "dais/crumb" hints at Toy Fair seem to have been costed down to just Crumb, Hooka/pipe/bowl, and box that doubles as cardboard dais.

I can hear the fan rage coming already...

Honestly this is about what I expected for this exclusive. I was thinking that an actual throne piece would cost way too much money, especially since the 4-inch scale set was priced around $40 back in 2010. Overall this is a neat set, and it would make a nice companion piece for those who have the Fett set. For the rest of us maybe a mail away set with the pipe/railing, Salacious, and Hansicle will come down the road.

They couldn't price any of that into the retail set? Wha?
