Jabba’s Palace Playset – In Hand Thoughts

Packages containing Wal-Mart’s highly anticipated Jabba’s Palace playset have been showing up on doorsteps the past few days.

For those that have received your order, what say you?  Are you pleased, or do you feel Hasbro missed the mark?   Are you eager for more offerings in this format?  Share your thoughts here or in the forums!

Jabba’s Palace In-Stock Status

The Walmart exclusive Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set has fluctuated as “In Stock” and “Out of Stock” this evening online.., I personally placed an order, and my email states that I will receive it on May 18.

If you are able to place an order, let us know!  And hopefully orders won’t be cancelled like some of the TVC Skiff Guard Lando Calrissian orders were.

Thanks to Yakface staffer Jodo for the keen eye!

Load the Barge!

Since we got Hasbro’s attention with the “Build the Barge” campaign, why don’t we let them know who we’d like to see fill that Sail Barge (along with Skiff Guards and Jabba’s Palace denizens)?

Rules are the same as the other Yak’s Top Tens:

  • Pick up to 10 figures you’d like to see done in 3.75” The Vintage Collection scale.
  • If submissions have more than ten entries, only the first ten will be considered!
  • Do not list multipacks as a single entry.
  • Only one vote per character.
  • All figures are eligible, whether it’s a new figure, a repaint, re-issue, deluxe, etc.
  • Feel free to add descriptions to any of your choices, such as pack-ins.

Voting will end on September 10 – you can do so by posting in the forums or in the comments section of this article.

Update: Sail Barge Coming to UK?

Dark Side Toys has announced that they will be sharing some details soon on what appears to be an option for UK fans to order Hasbro’s most impressive Sail Barge.   This could be a big step toward making this project a reality.

Update: Steve Evans himself is endorsing this option for overseas collectors via his personal Instagram account.

Update 2: FWIW  Steve deleted his post.

Concept Series Update #21

Yakface forum moderator localgotal is back again with another round of Concept Series figures he’s created.  This latest update harkens back to the slimy entourgage of the illustrious Jabba the Hutt.

Check them out, enjoy the pics, and join in the discussion in our forums!  Hey, these would be awesome figures to populate a Sail Barge, right?
