still no jabbas around this part of California

None out here either...I even went to newport delaware on sunday too look, and that was a horrible horrible fail.

Found him at the Elkton, MD WalMart on Friday morning. They didn't have any of the new figures or vehicles out though.

Well I KNOW I ain't going that far south for it.

scored this today, the price tag said $34.97 but it scanned for $38.88, so they price adjusted down and gave me the $34.97 price, is that what everyone else is paying?

I am out of town right now, but my walmart had a couple of these left as of yesterday.  I will most likely check the walmarts here in central Texas and see what I can come up with.  PM me with your trades and maybe we can work something out.

So it looks like they're turning up, but one of the recent slideshows said that it would be an October release.  So for those of you (like me) that haven't seen one yet: wait for it.  If it's anything like the Dewback, ATST, or Octuparra, it'll be plentiful.

Trying to pay for thier space fee probably, but there were a lot of overseas SW fans there, so they may pay the cost for one.

I found two today, also at $38.  It's nice.  I've been slowly building up my palace denizens over the years in anticipation of a new Jabba.  Now he's here and I can set up the display.  Is there any way to get the backdrop?

It looks like a lot of Walmarts are not going to carry this.I noticed that only 4 Walmarts in my area have the shelf tag for the Jabba Thone.I am wondering if Walmart is scared to order a bunch of these like they did last year with the Evo sets and the AT-St they had last year.

I think you might be right. Still none at my walmarts..... So  I asked a toy dept manager and she said that because her walmart has a small tot section she may not be getting it.  So I looked at a super walmart today and still didn't find Jack s**t.

I am wondering if Walmart is nervious to put out the Jabbaa The Hut set because of Oola.Walmart has been pcky with the kinds of Magazines they sale in at thier news stand.I am wondering if Walmart veiws Oola to be "unappropriate".After all is how shall i say,reveiling.
