I do wonder if we can expect to see a Jabba re-release / update in the next 1.5 years to go along with the Throne room? I sure hope so, as I had skipped the SOTDS set while I wasn't as actively collecting.

There has been an increasing call for the creature assortment to return in some way, shape or form.  Jabba would fit into that perfectly.  And with 2023 being the 40th anniversary of ROTJ it makes perfect sense to release a Vintage Collection Jabba.  But knowing Hasbro I would expect them to actually release that in 2024.

Didn't you hear, since no one who dies in a Star Wars movie actually dies, we'e going to find out that Jabba was only choked to near death, and he comes back in Book of Boba Fett Season 6.

Wave 1 case pack: 2x ROTJ Jabba w/dais
Wave 2 case pack: 1x TBOBF Twin #1 w/half of litter, 1x TBOBF Twin #2 w/half of litter (litter halfs attach together, obviously - henchman litter carriers not included ;))

And here I was thinking of Blurrgs and Tatooine Sand Apes!

BTW, thanks, Jeff.  I can't stop giggling over that name!

Very cool. Pricier than I’d like, but also not incredibly surprising. I’ll definitely preorder one, and hope they continue “playsets” like this in the future. To me, this reveal really saved the livestream today. Lots of things we’ve gotten before otherwise. Man has collecting changed over the years, for a variety of reasons. I can’t imagine them dropping a $200+ playset during the POTJ days.

I remember the days when some people said it was pointless and unrealistic to be pushing Hasbro for playsets.   That we were beating a dead horse.

How sweet it is now that we've seen the current Hasbro team take interest in world building these past couple years.

Not sure how long this approach will last, so I'm just enjoying the moment.  I'll definitely be ordering at least one throne room.

It does look cool..

As for the price, I was expecting to pay $400 for a haslab product and get a lot more of the scenery included. It's too bad they didn't save tooling and paint costs on all the cups and plates and add more scenery. It has the spread of a Calico Critters playset.

I am glad the grill is there though. That is pretty classic scenery behind Jabba.

Also, Its time to watch the value on the (Trophy Wall) Jabba's Palace set shoot up. Get one fast if you never have.

That looks mighty grand. The 3D models on Thingiverse, as nice as they are, do not compare, and an excellent pro print would likely be over $150. The price is a big ouch, but I am in for 1!

Agreed.  And the best part about it for me is that it's designed with fitting on a shelf in mind.  I have 12" deep shelving and this will fit in perfectly.  If it was a big thick rectangle or something weird, it's a no go.

The grates and lighting slits are a really cool feature. I'll have to make sure this goes onto a lighted shelf to take full advantage.

It sure would have been nice if they designed this to connect to the Trophy Wall set, especially at the price point. Like just throw in 1-2 modular curved doorway/wall sections that could attach a few inches back on the Main Archway. Oh well, I'm not going to complain too much. Definitely excited for this guy.

It is crazy how much difference 14 years can make with inflation and price increases. Just for reference the Original Legacy BMF, which was bigger than this, had electronics, was also an all new mold, and had all kinds of firing missiles and moving parts retailed for only $159.99 - I remember thinking that was crazy expensive for a Hasbro item back then.

There has been an increasing call for the creature assortment to return in some way, shape or form.  Jabba would fit into that perfectly.  And with 2023 being the 40th anniversary of ROTJ it makes perfect sense to release a Vintage Collection Jabba. 

Wave 1 case pack: 2x ROTJ Jabba w/dais

Yeah, I love that list Jeff & Nick. I've been think how much I want to see the creature assortment come back, it has been years since we've had one. Blurrgs were definitely my number 1 item too, I'd also add either a new Bantha or a repack, the mudhorn, the Ray Harryhousen Sand Ape, and maybe the big ice spider.

I've got a feeling that the detail and deco on this would leave those old walls looking pretty dumb and lackluster if you stuck them together.

Do I recall correctly that Pulse is charging preorders as they are placed rather than when they ship?

If yes, I'll be putting $230 on a card tomorrow.
