Haslab Rancor
« on: July 16, 2021, 02:46:05 PM »

Well, they let it slip yesterday, but it's now official. Pretty boring. I'll be skipping. Even though I collect OT in Black series, black series is secondary for me and a rancor at this scale is too much. And the $$$ will be prohibitive I'm sure.

Rancor is not exciting enough for me on it's own.  Now add an Rancor Keeper, Oola, and Yarna, I would buy it!.....then sell the Rancor loose on eBay.

It's a great idea anyhow. I hope they get enough support!

I really wonder how well this will do. I suppose how much Hasbro wants to charge for it will be a big factor, but so far I've not really seen huge excitement for the announcement on the interwebs (as I like to call them), not to the same degree as the Haslab Galactus for sure.

I'm trying to phase out of 6-inch and back to 4-inch personally, so this is a pass for me.

I have always been a big fan of all the beasts and monsters in the Star Wars movies from the Bantha, Dewback, Wampa, TaunTaun, and especially the Rancor (I have 3 of them from various releases).  Even others from the prequels such as the Kaadu, Falumpaset, Opee, Fambaa, the Reek, the Nexa, and Massiff have found their way into my collection.  I have 12” versions of the TaunTaun, Dewback and Kaadu as well.
I must say the Rancor has been one of my favourites, but I do agree with Ian - I don’t know what I would do with a supersized version without some of the appropriate 6” figures to display with it.  Oola, Yarna and the Keeper would be ideal if they were to be made available.

Actually if they did that I'd be tempted to jump in,, and as you say Ian sell the rancor after. I wonder if there would be a glut of loose rancors for a while.

I am really curious to see how it performs. And what the price point will be.

I'm guessing those characters may be add on for target sales much like TVC figs were added for each threshold reached on the Razorcrest.  But still a pass for me.

The Rancor is nice beast, but at this scale, easy pass for me. I look forward what will be the price.

Maybe they'll do them as add ons for reaching backing goals like with Razorcrest!
 Oops. Fishman said this already.

I think this is a pass for me as well. I am scaling back my 6" collection and not picking up a lot of it now. It seems like this is going to be a pass for a lot of people.
