Forgive me for not going back in the thread to find the answer, but...

Has it been mentioned which Jabba comes with this? Is it new or either the WM Exclusive or Black Series set one?

I believe it is the new sculpt one from that TRU Black Series set (that never showed up in my area)

That would be perfect as that is technically the only 3.75" non-animated piece I don't own.

Some details...

-Jabba is the TBS pack Jabba probably slight deco changes as is usual.

-Hasbro is making barges available outside the US as I understand it so some extras beyond the 8000+ are happening but details are unknown.

-Hasbro, in its legal wording, reserved the right to make more of they want with no restrictions, no shocker there of course.  That said it doesnít mean theyíre going to.  Iíd think if money was on the table they might do it.  I kind of hope they do just to piss some people off in the Facebook group for the barge because there are some real ****heads in that hoard Iíd like to see unhappy just for my own amusement.

Iím already dreading this thing coming because I have nowhere for it haha.  I really donít know what Iím going to do with it.  Even for storage itís going to be a pain in the ass for a time.

I could have sworn that during the initial announcement they said the Jabba was all new?

I'll ditto what Jesse said - I don't have a link handy, but in one of the post-Toy Fair google hangouts they did with fan sites it was confirmed by Hasbro that it was the TRU 3.75" Black Series "Rancor Pit" box set Jabba sculpt but with all-new improved deco/paint apps.

...and THAT Jabba is the same sculpt as the SOTDS version that was released as a WalMart exclusive, IIRC.  The deco is the difference on those versions.

Actually, I believe it's different sculpt all together. I was scratching my head when the TRU TBS came out because it was the only new piece in the set, IIRC.

It is a different sculpt than the Wally one but it also doesnít have the melty issues the Walmart one has in some (not all, yet) cases...  I donít own the black series one actually as I refused to buy that TRU set, so for me itís a win win thing.  That set was too much moola for a Jabba I didnít really feel I needed since I like the wally one a lot at that time.  Mine is not melting but I fear it may at some point.

Wait, what's this about Jabba's melting? I have the Walmart one, but he seems ok. Has this been happening?

Yeah no rhyme or reason either to it...  not necessarily an issue of environment or anything.  Just seems to happen to some.  Maybe many or all eventually.

I remember Dressel Rebel's story - I dug it up for you.   I should check my Walmart Jabba when I get home tonight now that I'm thinking about this issue again...

I shared this over at RS.

Is this some super realistic action feature (I know it's not) or is this actually breaking down already? Mine can't be the only one to be doing this. Anyone else experiencing this? It definitely felt like oil on my fingers when I rubbed them together.>

I've been looking for a place to tell this story. My Jabba Walmart sat on his throne on my shelf for a few years until we finally installed a legit collection room to keep my massive figure collection away from our baby that was about to be born last winter. I painstakingly moved a few figures at a time a couple rooms over to their new home, but Walmart Jabba was stuck to his throne, and the tip of his tail was touching Max Rebo's piano and the oily secretion from the tail MELTED the part of the piano it was touching!!! I threw that Jabba away before it destroyed anything else. Funny now that a new Jabba is out, people are finally fondling the old one and discovering this. I moved 2,000 Star Wars and Marvel figures a handful at a time, Jabba was the only figure like this. The only other noteworthy destruction was yellowed VOTC scout troopers and stormies, in a room with no light and climate controlled year round.

Also funny, looked at ebay Walmart Jabba selling for $125-250, yeah right!!! It's worth $0. The throne survived ps, no damage there.

Thanks for looking this up Jeff.  I tried to find this yesterday, but didn't really have the time.

I am also going to check out my Jabba tonight...it's been fine. **knocks on wood**

Mine is ok and I donít have central air, but it does seem to happen to this particular figure to some extent.  Keep an eye on him.  Heíll sweat onto the dais and pillows!😑
