This was by far one of the best TVC reveals from SWCE.  Because Hasbro finally decided to go there with some of Jabba's human goons.  It seemed like they had been off limits until now.

Tessek looks fantastic!  And while I still hold up the POTJ Tessek as one of the best figures of that entire decade in terms of the sculpt, the figure was showing its age in the lack of articulation.

The Ree-Yees reissue was puzzling until I figured something out - Hasbro appears to be systematically re-releasing all of the Jabba's Palace figures from the Kenner era in TVC!  So far we've gotten:

-Klaatu (Wooof) - reissue
-Ree-Yees - reissue
-Squid Head (Tessek) - new
-Weequay - reissue
-Nikto (Nikto Skiff Guard) - reissue
-Yak Face (Saelt Marae) - reissue

ALREADY IN TVC 2.0
-Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard Disguise)
-Bib Fortuna - 2022
-Klaatu Skiff Guard
-Gamorrean Guard - reissue from TVC 1.0

DEBATABLE
-Kenner Barada (Actually Kithaba based on the design)


That leaves the following Kenner characters from Jabba's palace:
-8-D8
-Max Rebo band trio (Max Rebo, Droopy McCool, Sy Snootles)
-Rancor Keeper
-EV-9D9
-Barada (correct design)
-Amanaman

With SDCC still to come in July, I'm wondering if Hasbro is going address these as well?

I wonder if anyone asked them if Ree-Yees is still VC137 or if this one gets a new VC #?  Or if the cards were on display in the booth or not to get a look at the cardback?

The 2023 version has the 40th ROTJ logo on the card and they've updated the name pill from "Ree Yees" to "Ree-Yees" so the cardfront is definitely different from the 2019 Jabba's Palace pack-in version , but I'm wondering if he's got a new VC# or not?

I think I heard it cited as a correction.  There was a lot of information that came out this weekend, and I think it's probably going to remain the same VC number.  Hasbro didn't change the VC number for Saelt Marae, and that figure got the ROTJ40 logo.

Answering my own question - I am re-watching the panel this morning and the presentation says VC137.

2023 VC137 Ree-Yees
2023 VC286 Tessek
2023 VC287 Taym Dren-garen
2023 VC288 Velken Tezeri

I'm so ******* excited for Squidhead I could flip over my desk. I bought 2 of those packs...pricey, but I need that guy. And the other guys. But not Ree Yees, because I have a few of him, and I've seen Shabby Blue's site and I know what's going on there.

You really can't have enough of these types of guys.   

Not that Hasbro needs any more of my money, but they could come out with different head sculpts and maybe different hands depending on the race and have piles of Mando pirates, Jabba's Goons, TBoBF speeder bike gang members for years.  Lots of easy different kitbashing for background characters would be sweet.

Totally agree, I can put a random Gran into plenty of areas in my display. But since Ree Yees was recently released in the trophy alcove playset, they really should have gone with Nysad, who is pretty pricey on the secondary market, and a need for the palace AND the Sail Barge.

I think this makes sense with the Jabba's/Boba's Palace set on its way. Hopefully, this means we will be getting a TVC Jabba this year as well. (I missed the both the TBS & the Khetanna versions)

The Black Series 3.75 one is the same sculpt, but the paint is better on the Khetanna version. It's a great sculpt though. I bought a BS Jabba on eBay a while back and repainted it for my display. I have some standalone photos, but I'm in a meeting at the moment, so I can't mess around with the photo hosting stuff.

Just got the email that this one is shipping soon.  I can’t wait to get brand new OT characters.

Got my shipping notice too.  And the Jabba's Boba Fett Throne Room will arrive today.  Looks like I'll have more dudes to populate it!
This is the way.
