The Toys”R”us exclusive Rancor Pit set has been discounted to $79.99 now on remaining stock – quite the deal for this fantastic set. As always, your mileage may vary as some stores are obviously sold out by now.
Some stuff is down 50% now, including the 6″ scale deluxes at some stores for just $12.48 per forum member TVC15’s report (recall Target lowered the everyday price on these a while back once it became apparent that there wasn’t enough demand to move them at full retail of $39.99).
Personal Note: If you’ve been holding out on these, the 6″ deluxes are pretty good, so passing on this price could lead to regret down the road...
An up close and personal review of the Toys”R”us/SDCC Jabba the Hutt has been posted for your viewing pleasure at Mightyjabba.com
Be forewarned, for those of us that had been excited by this new slug for our 3.75″ collections may not be so pleased considering some of the news in the review (including the paint apps)…
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!

A new Customizing Challenge is upon us, and we’re back to more Original Trilogy goodness with this one – Jabba’s Entourage! Of course though, as with all Yakfinities, customizers can branch out and create fan fiction characters, and certainly the prequels and Clone Wars characters that are part of Jabba’s gang are fair game too.
Whether you are a crafty veteran customizer or have never even attempted to make a custom figure, we welcome you to join in Yakfinities #52 – Jabba’s Entourage and show off what you’ve got! As always, we’ll have some random prize winners selected after this wraps up at the end of June.
Forum member Evilivo has updated his customizing thread with some real gems for your viewing pleasure, including a reworked Jabba the Hutt. Check out his custom upgrades thread and enjoy the pics after the jump!
