    Upcoming Jabba Playskool set?

    I was checking out some pics of Wizard Con and saw the back of the Playskool Falcon set and noticed this. Is it just me or does it look like it could be Jabba?

    I'm afraid not, here's a pic of the Millennium Falcon Adventure box back from Cel 2: http://systems.figures.com/gallery/album05/aac

    As you can see there, the thing you highlighted was the Naboo Fighter from the TPM-themed "Duel with Darth Maul" set.

    Ah, d'oh. From the angle it looked quite a bit like Jabba, and the black clothed guy there looked like he could've been a Jedi Luke. Too bad, that would've been a cool set, Jabba himself may not be wanted that much to kids, but since he is a huge bug I think alot would want him.

    Oh, I definitely could see why that pic would make you think that.

    I think Jabba would be a great set, maybe an articulated Jabba w/dais, gammorrean guard, Luke, and instead of a vehicle, a large, figure-eating Rancor.

    A Max Rebo band set would be cool, what kid doesn't want a blue elephant? 'Course to attract kids to it, it would probably need to be on a playset which would play the Jabba's Throne room music.

    Thinkin' a little grandiose, eh? These sets have always been bare-bones, so I don't think the Max Reebo band really need to be made here, but I'd probably buy 'em.
