No Jabba / Salacious Crumb?

The Jabba set is offered thru Hasbrotoyshop, so black series collectors attending SDCC have been blessed with two separate lines to wait on.

I hope they plan on making a hell of a lot more of these than they did of the Fett w/ Carbonite.

Speaking of that, it's in stock at BBTS right now.

Wait, isn't this the same set everyone was just saying was pointless and uninspired? Making it hard to get is its only selling point, don't take that away!

To me this is the ideal SDCC exclusive...  "attractive packaging" should be all exclusives to that show ever are, at this point.

Now though, I almost wish it HAD come with a plastic table and chairs, just to see the implosion of discussion forums housing the handful of guys left who collect Star Wars toys in a die-hard manner.  *shrugs*  That's just my sadistic side.

I like when the SDCC exclusive used to be something you were stoked about and you knew you'd probably get at a premium price...  Of course, back then everyone just bitched about the price, not the availability also.  :-\  Thems were the days.

I'm usually a sucker for stuff like this but I just can't get excited about this cruddy offering. I have those 2 figures already and don't need to start army building those guys. I have a feeling this is not going to be flying off the shelves like the Boba Fett set. Would not surprise me at all to see these hit their website eventually as other lame exclusives have in the past.

It also doesn't help that there are so many other awesome exclusives out there this year. This is going to be my most expensive SDCC yet, between exclusives for Walking Dead, Pacific Rim, Alien Reaction, etc.

Since this set is a TRU exclusive it should be available at stores as well. That's how they have handled most SDCC exclusives in the past. Now that I remember that I'm bummed HTS didn't get this Cantina pack, with the Jabba going to TRU. Ah well.
