As per JediDefender (http://jedidefender.com/newspro/fullnews.cgi?newsid1232504675,95633,) . . .

087-06-0106 RC Droid $16.99

087-06-0165 SW Marbles $3.99

087-06-0303 SW Fig Vehicle $15.99

087-06-0324 SW Deluxe Vehicle $64.99

087-06-0327 SW RC R2D2 6in $24.99

087-06-0634 SW Fig Geonosis Arena Pk $12.99

087-06-0635 SW GH Playset Hero Set $39.99

087-06-0538 SW Turbo Tank $99.99

I don't really care about the RC stuff, but those Geonosis packs (with, I assume, those eBay prototypes) will be sweet. And it looks like the Turbo Tank will be $100. I wonder what the "Fig Vehicle" is? A new price point of smaller ships perhaps?

I am guessing fig/vehicle could be the Star Wars transformers.

So what the "Deluxe Vehicle" at $65? It's got to be pretty big for the Star Fighter assortment (which is closer to $20-$25) and even the Gunships go for $30-$40. So what's bigger than a gunship and smaller than an AT-TE/Turbo Tank?

Nice to see the Turbo Tank is coming. I hope they make it as well as the last two big vehicles we got.

RC R2-D2 sounds like it could be neat. I had thought about getting that 18"?? R2 that came out a few years back, but never did.

Finally, replacing what was lost.

I would love to see either of these vehicles but I really can't see them selling a revamped AT-ST for $65... I mean it shouldn't be bigger than the Gunships which sold at about $30 when they debuted. Granted there was a movie so it was less risky and they could sell them at a lower price.... And again, my ideal Slave I would be about the same size as the gunship, not much bigger so the price seems like a stretch. Then again, Hasbro sold us the Lars' Homstead for $50 and the Sarlaac for $70 so who knows. I'm just afraid it's some Clone Wars vehicle that we haven't even seen in the animation yet.

Maybe they're keeping the UPB out longer. I haven't seen any price drop locally like with the GI Joe UBP.

I checked that. The DCPI is 087-06-2070. The deluxe vehicle must be different.

HMMMM.

Yes, I know that and stated such. I'm saying STAR WARS UPB hasn't been clearanced locally. Why not the Star Wars UPB? Is it moving that much better than the GI JOE one?

Mr. JabbaJohnL
01-21-2009, 03:24 PM
I didn't even see the $65 vehicle when I first posted. Strange. I have no idea what that could be. Hopefully we'll know at Toy Fair.

DarkArtist
01-21-2009, 04:21 PM
certainly has me intrigued as to what the $65 could be for, i like the thought of a new Slave 1 or maybe they will give us a Seperatist shuttle or Clone shuttle for the line ?

i like the $15 vehicle / figure catagory. i'm thinking perhaps a return to the old deluxe days clone on speeder or vulture droid sets ?

01-21-2009, 06:09 PM
Well, I'm hoping the $65 vehicle isn't from the OT. I can't imagine paying that much for anything that wouldn't be significantly more (ie an AT-AT or Jabba's Sailbarge). I would hate to pay that much for an AT-ST, Slave 1 (though, I'd rather it be the Slave1, as I don't have much desire to upgrade and at that price, I wouldn't buy it), new Y-wings. Maybe the Clone Wars Y-wing is cool enough to hit that price. Anyway,I'm hoping it's a CW/PT/EU vehicle, so I can pass it by. But, if it was the CW Y-Wing and cool enough, I may have to think twice.

DarkJedi5
01-21-2009, 06:13 PM
I'm with TheDarthVader, I think the $15 assortment is transformers not some speeder/small vehicle assortment.

087-06-0324 SW Deluxe Vehicle $64.99


BBTS has the Deluxe ARC-170 (the one with the Imperial paint scheme whose packaging just showed up in pics with the Turbo Tank) listed at $74.99. Allowing for a $10 mark up and considering this is considered a "deluxe" vehicle I think we solved the mystery on this one. Another boring repaint of the 170. I remember snagging the Shark one on clearance after Xmas for like $25. But I don't think I need another one, even at that price.

No mention of the Rancor on that list. But it's already available anyways
http://www.target.com/Star-Wars-Collection-Figures-Skywalker/dp/B0016PK94K/sr=1-17/qid=1233094862/ref=sr_1_17/186-1212393-6361043?ie=UTF8&pricerange=&index=target&field-browse=1038620&rh=k%3Astar%20wars&page=4

Wonder what the $65 vehicle is? That's the $65 question.

TheDarthVader

I have to find that Rancor at my Target. I love it! Glad I traded the other one away now. This new one is superb.

DarkJedi5
01-29-2009, 12:08 PM
Thanks for the heads up Blue2th (just ordered mine!) but what I was trying to say is that I bet the $65 vehicle is the ARC-170. Since it's listed online at $75 I assume it would be about $10 less at retail. The fact that they both have the word "deluxe" in the description suggests further that this is what we'll see on the shelves at our local Targets.

Yeah I bought two of those purple trimmed Rancors, and took one back. I liked the included Fellician figure too much to part with at least one.


No problem Darkjedi5.
Looking forward to the ROTJ Rancor, though I think I'll wait to find him in person.

Picked up Joe ubp's for 13.74! They had very little damage:razz::razz::thumbsup:

The TRU Lars Homestead exclusive and the Target Sarlac exclusive were each at that $65 pricemark. I'm betting that SW Delux Vehicle listed for $65 is along those same lines: some set piece or medium size vehicle with assorted POTF2 repaints (done poorly).

Hope I'm wrong though...

Joe UBP for $13.74? If I could find it, it'd be well worth that for another HISS and the Vehicle Gunner.

I can't ever find anything, so I ordered the Rancor. It's already shipped as of 1am today. I should have it by next week sometime.

JEDIpartner
02-02-2009, 08:24 AM
Holy crap!!! My Rancor just arrived!!!!! I ordered it on the 29th with the 5-7 day shipping. Clearly not 5-7 days-- what a bargain!

How's it look? I want to get this, but am waiting to see something other than the prototype before I decide.

It looks awesome!! The detailing is incredible: brown plastic with dark brown paint wipes to bring out the detail and some lightly applied white highlights to bring out additional details. The eyes are black with a little white dot in each. The mouth is a dark red with maroon wipes to bring out detail there. The shackle is actually a separate piece and not moulded onto the body, which really adds a bit more realism to it.

I've not yet opened it, but the box reads: "Featuring RANCOR Grip". I'm guessing the hand with the shackle on it closes as the fingers on that one are fully extended in the package. The feet appear to be ball-jointed, which makes me believe the shoulders may be ball-jointed as well. The jaw is smartly hinged with the mandible flaps on the inside portion of the mouth, so it doesn't leave a weird gap when it is opened.

The Luke... is grandma's shawl Luke from last year. *shrug*

DarkJedi5
02-02-2009, 11:17 AM
Who cares about the Luke? Do we really need another one? They keep releasing what is essentially the same figure over and over. I mean, I guess Hasbro had to put that Luke in with the Rancor (Cause the only other reasonable figures would be Oola, a Gamorean Guard, and Malakili but really which one would YOU package?) but he's just a throw away figure for me. I ordered mine the same day as JEDIpartner so hopefully (fingers crossed) mine comes today too!

JEDIpartner
02-02-2009, 11:18 AM
I felt the same way as you about the Luke. It's good to have for customising reasons, though, so I haven't too much or a problem with it. :)

I hope you get yours today as well!!!

JEDIpartner
02-02-2009, 03:28 PM
Opened mine up and the arms are NOT ball-jointed. They appear to be elastic banded sockets. That's a little disappointing but not anything I'm going to get made about. The "rancor grip" is not a bad feature as it does not have a mechanism, but is one of those rubbery hands with the wires in it. I think this is possibly better than a mechanism... unless you're not into this sort of construction. LOL

The arms ARE, however, swivel cut just below the shoulders.

Well the new computer is a bit of a downgrade. You can no longer check gift card balances on them, only scan prices. How dare they force me to do subtraction!!!

Mr. JabbaJohnL
02-02-2009, 04:07 PM
Are you sure the Rancor's arms aren't ball-jointed? The Force Unelashed one's are, and this is based off of that one.

JEDIpartner
02-02-2009, 08:15 PM
They don't seem to want to move. I'm afraid I'll break it. :(

I got the right arm to move up and down more. It feels like I'm twisting a stuck joint on the left arm. If you move it up, just bounces back.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
02-02-2009, 09:47 PM
Hmm . . . do you have the TFU one? They don't seem like they're ball-jointed, but they are (at least the bottom half, near the armpit). I just assumed it would be the same.

Oh, also, did they fill in the nostril holes? What about the earring, is that a separate piece or what?

DarkJedi5
02-02-2009, 11:42 PM
From the photos I've seen it does look like it should have the ball jointed shoulders. As far as the nostrils go it looks like they just added holes to the TFU one which uses a slightly different sculpt for the harness straps. I'll let you know for sure tomorrow (hopefully) assuming mine shows up if JEDIpartner doesn't respond first.

JEDIpartner
02-03-2009, 09:04 AM
The nostrils appeared to be "normal". I didn't see signs of any holes. The "earring" is a little metal loop.

DarkJedi5
02-05-2009, 01:26 AM
Finally got mine today and hate to contradict you JEDIpartner but mine does have the nostril holes from the TFU one. Also I totally see what you mean about the ball jointed (or not shoulders) It's sort of like a ball joint but they're really stiff and mine stick so moving them is a little tricky (it does feel as if you're stretching the plastic a bit) and when you can, they don't always stay. Only other complaint is the "Rancor grip" hand. It was a good idea but the rubber around the metal is so thick it makes it pretty tough to pose the fingers so that they look good. All that said this is an awesome toy. The size is tremendous and the little details like the earring and the shackle being it's own piece are huge pluses. The Luke is even worse than I imagined. It's the TAC one with the blaster wound on his hand and the belt you can tuck the lightsaber into. I have no problem with him coming with a lightsaber but they couldn't have fixed the hand and given him a belt without the loop in it? Looks like I'll have to use another figure for the Rancor pit diorama....

What is interesting is that on Target's site, it states that the rancor is an online item only and not available in stores. Is this just for the time being? Has anyone found this in a store? I need to know...if not, I am going to order one off the internet.

They said the same thing about the AT-RT pack a couple years ago and it ended up in stores. I got it online several months before I saw it in stores though. You never can tell with Target, they may show up in huge numbers next week or sometime in june. I remember finally finding the fathers day "Luke I am your father" pack in WM in september of the year it was released.

I found this funny, that in the Hasbro pannel from Toy Fair they list this as an Ultimate Battle Pack item, which both are still sitting in the store locally for me.

02-17-2009, 01:19 PM
The other day I saw the Sarlaac UBP at the janky Target near me (you know, the one that for no explicable reason had figs from the Walmart exclusive TSC wave on its pegs) marked down to $50, made me regret paying full price but it's the only one of those UBPs I've seen in a long while. Still no Rancors. I ordered mine online (I got it pretty much with free shipping with an online offer that I don't remember) and it is great. If you can find a code that will take care of shipping, there's no reason to wait cause you'll be sorry if it never makes it to your store. Especially if those other UBPs are clogging the shelves where you are.
