If you feel like gambling,  eBay seller from China is selling JABBAS play set TVC with Han and yee Rees for $11 usd with free shipping.
I took a stab at it, eBay will protect you for like 30 days or so ( I think). So use caution if you can't afford to lose it!

Update. I removed the link, as eBay sent me a message this morning that they removed the sellers site.

I'm pretty sure this is a scam.  Sellers like this have been popping up selling upcoming hot items (like the Marvel Legends Professor X) for "preorder" from some seller in HK or asia for DIRT CHEAP, TOO-GOOD-TO-BE-TRUE prices.  This is just an attempt to get people to give them even a meager amount of money before they get shut down. eBay has been finding and shutting these sellers down aggressively.

Also, if we want Hasbro to keep putting out MORE of these types of diorama products, we have to buy them from the retailers (ugh, like Walmart).  Buying from asian sellers on ebay won't send any kind of signal to Hasbro other than "3.75" collectors talk a lot, but they only put up the cash when they're forced to - like with the Sail Barge".  As much as I love getting a good deal, I will shell out the proper cash for the Palace set if it means we'll also get Echo Base (the prototypes for the rebel computer console have been seen on Instagram) or Bespin Cloud City or Yavin Base.

 yep. in the fall last year i felt like buying some of those Masterpiece Transfromers KO figures from ebay. i was green buying these and found some for half the price compared to what most people sell them for on there. i got ripped off but ebay covers you with there money back guaranttee. so luckily i got my money back! still, i felt like an idiot falling for that but i was also new to Transformers and i learned pretty quickly those rip off artists show up on and off all the time.

 Star Wars figures on ebay i had never seen that before but now it looks like they are taking a stab at doing it with those too. what a bunch of slimy people! if anyone met someone in person that did this they would get knocked out or should get knocked out. they can go out into the world and no one knows what they do. i really cant stand that type of behaviour. aaah

 anyway, be careful. dont fall for too good to be true prices like Napseeker just said.

Looking at the comments section, I can't believe how many people are willing to gamble away their personal info on the chance that this scam might be legit. 

Just stay away folks, if it sounds too good to be true!

They know how to bait the trap, that's for sure.

Aside - it's April 1st. Any chance we'll see exclusive Vintage Collection Skiff Landos at WalMart this week?

Walmart near me re-stocked archive line.  They had everything but Fett.  I did break down and buy Bossk.  I've stayed away from all the bounty hunters except Fett cause they'd be hard to get.  I've never even seen Dengar yet.  He'd probably be the only other one I'd get if I see him.

I went today just to check - was hoping for a full case of Landos & a second full case of the Jabba's Skiff wave of VOTC... found nothing.  :sad0064:

Lando Skiff Guard is probably not coming to Walmart Canada. I think they declined selling this piece, like they did with Rey (Island Journey) and the Mimban Trooper. Bascially, Walmart Canada has been declining any SW exclusives for the past few years.

So better try other means to acquire this figure...

Unlikely but not impossible that they'll show up at TRU or EB games.... but you're likely right. I'll see if my California toy hounds can track it down for me.
