I’m really excited about that Jabba’s playset / dio piece.  That’s the highlight of the day for me.

My highlight as well. I hadn't heard any rumors of this, and would not have expected this - particularly in a non-cardboard form. Only bad part is the Wal-Mart exclusivity. Any word on price?

What is the trophy head that is not a TaunTaun?

This is really cool.

After all my years of playset grief and complaining,  something special finally is happening.

Wow.  This piece was a genuine surprise.  And I think Hasbro did something really cool here.  New figures would have been nice, but this playset is a major step forward.

Cantina alcoves would be a nice thing in this style.

This is like a “centerpiece” for 4” figures and that works for me.  Nice big display for figures, nice detail, the lowering carbonite block is just gravy.  It isn’t too big but isn’t too small.  It is sorta squarish looking so it’ll fit shelves nicely, it puts two more TVC figs out that weren’t hard to get as TBS figs but are appreciated as they stand...  I don’t need em but I’ll take them to get the rest of it all.

The only thing I wish it had was lighting for the Carbo Han Slab on the wall but I can do my own easily.  Given Yak’s reveals this set still snuck by as a surprise and that’s awesome because we got the best of both worlds with timely info with early leaks and a shocker haha.

Only real legit honest bitch?  Walmart.  🤷‍♂️  I doubt anyone disagrees there.

New figures would have been nice

I'm guessing these were easy choices because the work was already done?  Remember back to all those rumors that these guys were supposed to be on TVC cards before it got scrapped and the Black Series 3/75" line was born.  They probably had the cards for these two, and Boushh, all ready to go which is why they've been easy choices for the TVC reboot. :P

True. And the Han Solo figure and carbonite block are the centerpiece for this set. And if this is a reissue of the 3.75” Black Series figure from 2014? I hope Hasbro used the new facial deco techniques, because the original release was a horrid likeness.

This looks really nice, and at a decent price point.  2 figures and a detailed environment for $50?!   I was worried this was going to be priced very high based on their recent TIE and AT-ST repacks.

Great surprise! Sucks that it's Walmart, though.

Wondering if the set should include a thawed out Carbonite slab? Kinda looks like the thawed one is included with the carded Han. Hard to tell for sure.

It looks like it's a reissue of the 3.75" Black Series Han Solo, carbonite block and all.  PLEASE let them use the photo realistic deco on Han this time!  As for other carbonite blocks?  IIRC, the completely thawed out block came with the POTF2 Pop-up Jabba's palace playset.  And another glowing/thawing carbonite block came with the TSC version of Han Solo.

Also a highlight for me. Very cool. I don't mind the figures but as someone said I think on Yakface, this would have been an opportunity to do like Hermi or Ephont Mon maybe on the vintage card. But you can't have everything. This is great and hopefully it signals some more sets, either Cantina or Hoth (Echo Base sort of corridors) or maybe the new films too (Scarif/Snoke Throne Room).
