We are hearing more than just a few complaints that not everyone has received his or her Walmart exclusive TVC Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) yet. To date, their orders are showing as still pending or have been canceled altogether because of a lack of stock. If this is you, please let us know your status in the comments, or if you’d prefer more privacy, send me an email. The information you provide will be used to help find out more about the situation. Thanks. Keep in mind that more units will arrive in stores this Fall, so you shouldn’t need to resort to aftermarket prices on eBay.
UPDATE: It will be available in approximately one week, but check out his other cool cardboard backdrops!
Facebook page Cardboard Galaxy has produced a fantastic enhancement for your Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set). It looks so incredible we wish Hasbro would have thought of this and added it to the box! A simple cardboard flooring and backdrop add depth and dimension like never before! Check them out! Special thanks to JTA reader Matthew C. for the tip!
Well, I guess every delivery couldn’t be perfect. JTA reader Lord Bodega eagerly anticipated the arrival of his Jabba’s Palace Adventure Sets, only to receive the two he ordered taped together and with shipping labels attached to the outside of the product boxes. There was no shipper box at all! We are trying to figure out which warehouse his items were shipped from, but in the meantime, please let us know if you experienced something similar. Overall, the shipping experiences for this item have been incredibly positive.
Hurry if you still need it! The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace Adventure Set with exclusive carded Han Solo (In Carbonite) and Ree-Yees is back IN STOCK after a couple of cancellations were processed! It likely won’t last long! Thanks to everyone who wrote in with the tip!
Did you successfully secure the Walmart exclusive The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set)? Well, if you didn’t, you might be in for some disappointment. Aside from pre-order cancellations and declined credit cards, the stock available online is now depleted, that is unless an order for more is placed (which may or may not happen depending upon what Walmart sees fit for this item). Later this Fall, select stores will receive an allotment as well. Should any of this information change, we’ll be sure to post an update for you. P.S. The blockbuster success of this item is really, really good news.

Holy mackerel. I am dumbfounded by The Vintage Collection Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set). This is what I had wished for TVC since its inception back in 2010. And although it took almost a decade to happen, Hasbro finally gets it. When it comes to scenery and playsets and other things required to make the 3.75″ super-articulated masterpieces look more beautiful, this is one of the ways to do it. Jabba’s Palace (Adventure Set) comes with a solid plastic diorama of a cut of Jabba’s Palace. It then interacts wonderfully with the two figures exclusively included here, but also with so many other beautiful action figures produced years ago.
Exclusively included are TVC-carded versions of Han Solo (Carbonite) (VC136) and Ree-Yees (VC137). Han Solo disappointingly doesn’t come with “photorealistic” technology, but his paint operations are slightly improved from the 2015 release. His carbonite block is magnetized this time and hangs properly within the walls of Jabba’s Palace. Still, he’s based on The Empire Strikes Back, so we need a ROTJ-specific version of him. Seeing him carded this time in TVC-packaging is nice. Ree-Yees is markedly improved. The eyes look better than ever, and his coloring is brighter and more profound like it should be. And in all honesty, were it not for an exclusive retail set like this, we may have never gotten Ree-Yees packaged in The Vintage Collection. Both figures are a tremendous enhancement to this retailer exclusive, and make the $49.99 MSRP completely worth it for us.
The review is coming tomorrow, but feel free to check out the full gallery and other parts of the review right now. We worked up some cool scenes for you to enjoy and spent some time putting everything together for some screen-accurate presentations. Please leave your thoughts in the comments and be sure to come back for the full review tomorrow. By the way, our sample has a defect. The tauntaun’s right horn isn’t attached correctly, so we got stuck with an odd-looking trophy. Don’t let the error affect your appreciation of this set. Click HERE to check it out!
