"they said they underestimated the popularity of the set and were surprised by the rapid preorders they received."

This just tells you all you need to know about Hasbro's mindset regarding collector-focused products.

And yes, definitely do not give in to scalper prices, at least not yet. There's always hope to get this eventually at retail. Worst case, if it never restocks (wouldn't be the first time Hasbro promised more, and then cancelled later), then at that point you buy an ebay set if you really need to have it.

I hate exclusives as well.
I did pick up this set, haven't opened it yet, at Celebration. I paid more for it than in a store for sure. I figured I was there and I didn't have to factor in a shipping cost. At least that is how I justified it to myself. LOL

Just purchased one on ebay for almost $100 US. But hey, free shipping.  :(   Also picked up TVC Lando. Skipping the skiff since I'm perfectly happy with the one I have already.

Just under $30 US with free shipping was what I wound up going with on ebay.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Frustrating - but this Lando is a repaint of Sandstorm Lando from a few years ago (with slightly longer legs). Han & Ree Yees from the Jabba Set are also repacks.... but the damned remade vintage cards are new & too alluring for me to pass on.  :shakehead:

I opened up my Jabba’s Palace and set it up.  I must say that I am very disappointed with it as a diorama after all the hype and excitement.  It’s just three plastic “walls” and nothing else.  The old original cardboard set has much more atmosphere and play value than this new version.  Granted the plastic is much more durable and rigid than the cardboard but at least they could have included a printed cardboard floor to tie it all together.  I am not impressed with what I got.

Old Man Ben - I think I saw on Rebel Scum - someone had created their own floor etc. to go with the set. So I think it must be a shared opinion by some.  I am hoping to get a couple of sets - but of course - they sort of got you because of the (2) Vintage figures in the box.

Cardboard Galaxy on Facebook created their own Floor and backdrops for the side walls.
