I've been selective with this line so far, and Jabba goes into the "no" pile now.

Don't write off 6" Jabba too quickly. 

OK, sure, maybe write off the SDCC version, but the regular 6" Jabba release should get pretty cheap when they start piling up at Amazon because everyone is buying up the Scout/Bike sets and leaving the Jabbas.   :-X

So what's the deal between the exclusive and retail?   No pipe and salacious crumb?

SDCC Jabba set includes 6" Jabba, 6" scale Crumb, Pipe/Bowl/Railing, and fancy package/box that opens up to act as a cardboard dais/display.

Regular Jabba includes 6" Jabba and that's it.

Any word on the price difference?   Feeling like the regular one will end up at a fifth the price of the SDCC one.

Ugh, what a kick to the nuts. Not surprising though, they really seem to excel at finding a way to piss everyone off with these things.

I will of course be buying one, but I think I'm going to try the pre-order route this time instead of waiting until after the fact like last year.

This is gonna hit $200+ on eBay easy...

Looks like this Jabba will be $65 (compared to $40 for the regular version). 

Here's the blurb from Hasbro -

Quote
STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH JABBA THE HUTT THRONE ROOM ACTION FIGURE SET
(Approximate Retail Price: $64.99; Ages 4 & up: Available through HasbroToyShop.com, Booth #3229 at Comic-Con International San Diego)

The fan-favorite STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-inch action figure line jumps to hyperspace in 2014 with the introduction of iconic in-scale vehicles and alien creatures, all featuring the incredibly accurate design and high level of articulation fans have come to expect from THE BLACK SERIES collection. Fans will have their first opportunity to collect a 6-inch scale JABBA THE HUTT at San Diego Comic-Con with the JABBA THE HUTT's Throne Room Action Figure Set, which comes with exclusive railing, hookah, and in-scale SALACIOUS CRUMB action figure. The figures are packed out in a special, scene-accurate display that depicts JABBA's throne room, complete with space for last year's HAN SOLO in Carbonite (no longer available). Following the convention, a limited number will be available on HasbroToyShop.com.

$65 is reasonable, though why they couldn't at least squeeze Salacious into the mass retail version is beyond me. I imagine the Dais would have added at least another $40 to the cost, if not more.

Anyone going to get one with a friend or buddy who might be able to help them get an extra, and doesn't want to sell it for big bucks on eBay, let me know.  I'd love you forever.

Initially I wasn't that excited for Jabba, but he sure looks good with Crumb and that packaging is pretty sharp.
