Over the past few weeks, there's been a disturbance in the Force that we have all felt: The Haslab Rancor campaign tier reveals have been quite a letdown, and many loyal fans ended up cancelling their backing, as a response. Indeed, the Haslab Rancor will come with a repackaged Gamorrean guard, plastic bones, a cardboard back drop, a repackaged Salacious Crumb, and yet another version of Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker. Many collectors took to social media to express their discontent, and tried to make the message clear about what they wanted, like the obvious choice of having Malakili, the Rancor keeper figure come with it, or Jabba's exotic dancer Oola, with the hashtag #NoOolaNoMoolah trending for a bit. Well, we know that Disney decided a few years ago to not ever produce any merchandise again depicting what was then known as "the Slave Leia" (now called the "Hutt-slayer Leia"), because of the outrageous, objectifying outfit that the Alderaan princess was wearing in the Return of the Jedi. We also know that the movie had to be edited to remove Oola's wardrobe malfunction from the original versions of the film. But why would the Rancor Keeper not be included, you ask? ToyFarce asked an anonymous source that worked for Disney and Star Wars for years. "Well, the Rancor Keeper, or Malakili, is also a subject of great controversy at Disney. When you watch the movie, you'll see that he is TOPLESS in every one of his scenes! He is exposing himself all the time! It's a miracle that Disney hasn't edited a t-shirt over him yet! So no, there won't be any Rancor Keeper figure. First 'Slave Leia', then Oola and now Malakili..." More news at 11:00... "He got his titties out!"
Last Friday, Hasbro held a short but sweet "Star Wars: Fan First Friday" livestream, where they gave us more information about the current Haslab Star Wars project, the Black Series Rancor. We were shown pictures of the first prototype in all its greyness, and the first unlockable tier was revealed: It will be a retro-carded Gamorrean Guard... (and the crowd went mild for that one!). ToyFarce went above and beyond to try to uncover more unlockable tiers for all collectors who were disappointed by that first one, which is basically a re-packaging of an already released figure (still available on our sponsor BigBadToyStore!). #RepacksAreTheNewRepaints Obviously, we can imagine that one of the next tiers will be the Rancor Keeper. All that we can hope is that he comes with a second head sculpt, a crying one, so that we can recreate that heartbreaking scene when the Keeper cries next to his baby Rancor that just met its demise. So touching... Another great unlockable tier would be 'The Door', that unforgiving weapon that Luke uses to defeat the Rancor (spoilers!). The following reveals have been sent to ToyFarce by a trusted source, so we can say with 97,3% certainty that those will be the ones revealed by Hasbro very soon: What other unlockable tiers would you want to see with your Haslab Star Wars The Black Series Rancor?
