If it's articulation and assembly that really drives up Hasbro's costs, it might be in their interests to start producing more "display wall" playsets like this that are largely a hunk of detailed plastic without all that much production assembly.

Imagine how quickly they could put the Space Walls guys out of business with a cheaper product of the same quality, you mean?

I don't need this one, but I'm glad to see them doing these.

I wonder how I can fit this onto my Jabba's Palace Dio shelf.

Was thinking the same thing. Tantive IV corridors, Imperial computer rooms, lots to be done.

They really could... I can't remember what year it was (2010 maybe), I posted a "mockup Toyfair presentation" of what I'd like to see Hasbro make at Yakface, and the space wall concept was one of them and each set would come with 1-2 figures.  Not long after, Galactic Merchants started showing designs for their 3D printed sets of them... we know how that faired though as they couldn't keep up with demand and the quality was just not there with 3D printing... then GTP toys started their thing and yeah they are expensive... love the quality though.

Here we are now with Hasbro finally dipping into this... their whole stance on playsets for a long time that "they don't sell" just seemed like it was coming from people who just didn't want to change any of their business model to try it out.  I think a lot of it comes down to someone with pull at Hasbro actually wanting to do it, then it can happen.  I hope these sets go over well and we see a whole lot more! Don't want to get ahead of ourselves because they might not really dive into these after this, but there are so many possibilities and the production costing for Hasbro wouldn't seem to be that high.

Iím really excited about that Jabbaís playset / dio piece.  Thatís the highlight of the day for me.

I'm with you.  This is the coolest thing coming out of the show.  I've been wanting to make a Cantina diorama and this is the perfect wall piece to build around.

Do not lift barge by the railings. Do not look barge directly in the eyes. Do not taunt barge. If barge becomes angry, contact local regional governors.

Lets hope it does well enough to justify more sets. Hasbro went through the trouble of making Tontine IV corridors for Comic-Con last year, I would hope it'd be fairly cost-effective to down-size them for 3.75 inch.

So, half the cost of this is the two figures I'm assuming. $26 for the figures, $24 for the playset.

So, I watched the video review of this set that was posted over at Yakface and for whatever reason it didn't dawn on me until now that the Han/Carbonite is different from the previous release.

I was planning to keep the Han figure carded for my carded Han collection, but seeing that the figure apparently has the photo-real deco and the carbonite block has a magnet needed to work with the set, I guess I'll need to buy two Palace sets to get two Han figures- one to open and one to keep carded.  ::)

Not sure what I'll do with all the extra ReeYees...


Also, for the carded folks, the video confirms Carbonite Han = VC136 and Ree-Yees = VC137.  I have updated the JediDefender TVC Figure Release List with the numbers.

I already have the original 2013 Black Series 3.75" version on my Sail Barge.  I'll probably just sell the ones from the Jabba sets I buy.
