TRU/SDCC Exclusive Black Series “Rancor Pit” Update

jabba

Rebelscum forum member Holographic_Elvis has posted a new image of the upcoming “Jabba’s Rancor Pit” set in their forums.  Check out the full size image in all its glory here.

He notes that the retail price will be $130, and that it’s marked as a Comic Con product, but we should expect to see them in stores soon.  Is the price just too much for this?  Or are collectors willing to shell out that kind of money for a set of repacks, but with a new Jabba?  Head to our forums to share your thoughts!

Thanks to darthmac for the heads up!

Following up on Rebelscum’s report about the previously cancelled Legacy Collection Droid Factory assortment from 2013, I hit up my local Go! Calendars | Games | Toys store and found a few of those figures as well. Looks like I just need the Clone Trooper Sergeant and Luminara Unduli to finish off the assortment that caps off the Amazon Exclusive set nicely.

Toyguide Update: 2015 Convention Exclusive General McQuarrie Mini Bust

TG_preview_gen_mcquarrieMB

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today as we take a look at the 2015 Convention Exclusive General McQuarrie Mini Bust from Gentle Giant.

PROS: Anything that results in more tributes to the iconic Ralph McQuarrie is okay by me, but it does come at at price. The overall sculpt and paint are good with crisp details especially on the jacket and (non-removable) cap. For fans of Ralph McQuarrie and the Original Trilogy, this should be a welcome addition to your mini bust display.

CONS: The prices for Gentle Giant bust have steadily crept up over the last few years and this one falls victim to that trend as well. It is an exclusive, and it is McQuarrie, but $120.00 is pretty steep for this non-deluxe bust.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this bust is worth adding to your collection.
