May everyone who goes into a store and weighs boosters before buying in order to get Rancors be gifted only with Tie Crawlers...

Sadly, however, the Rancor pack is MUCH heavier from my experience than a Tie Crawler. I was able to spot my two Rancors out of my cases immediately just by feel.

If you can feel hardplastic on both sides of a heavy only buy it if you want another Tie Crawler.

It is obvious when you are going to pull a rancor. My LGS owner said the case felt heavy when he handed it to me, and I did pull a rancor when opening up boosters.



This set is not as easy to cherrypick, because of the cardboard and all, but it can be done.

Well judged by the above the 425 grams I'm hoping that it is indeed a Rancor and NOT a Tie Crawler - how about the Golan Arms?

How heavy is that?


not heavy at all

This one is significantly heavier than the other Huge Packs but then I'm wondering if it's a TIE Crawler or Golan Arms.


Open it and find out.

Hey for the record everyone, i opened the 259 gram booster last night.

TIE Crawler!!!

So if you want to avoid it - you'll notice is significantly heavier than all the other boosters thus far (aside from the 425 gram bohemoth I still have yet).

So I'm down to the heaviest booster being either the Rancor or Golan Arms.

Also for the record, Engineer is right if you press against the top of the booster and feel rectangular plastic (which will leave a small imprint on the booster) it's a TIE Crawler.

Once I find out for sure what's in the 425 gram booster I'll let you know - odds are Rancor I'm thinking giving how heavy the last one was.


You will be surprised by how not heavy the turret is.

The booster with the Rancor was sooooo much heavier than the others it wasn't even funny.

I got two cases and the case with the rancor significantly outweighed the other one.

If the 459 gram booster is not a Rancor I would be shocked.

Well if the Golan Arms isn't that Heavy then given that the TIE is exactly 259 Grams (give or take 30 grams for minis) then It's a shoo in and it IS heavy let me tell you - comparatively as heavy as the old Rancor.

This is Epic I can't wait to open it....Maybe in a few more weeks!


Why are you wating to open the booster when you can open it now?

I am curious as to why you are waiting.

Is it just an "anticipation makes it more sweet" or is it a Christmas present?

It is not often that you see people who can withstand the temptation of having everything "right this second."

I applaud you for your restraint.

I was going to wait on mine, but I always want to hurry up and get them opened so I can update my trade thread.

When the new set came out, Matt, our local Rancor whisperer, picked out 3 cases out of the 52. _All_ _3_ _had_ _rancors_. Today, LGS has 3 cases left and needed to open one to get more product on the shelf. Matt opens up the case, pulls the first booster out, says to the LGS owner,"Can I buy this one?" LGS owner, knowing his penchant for pulling rancors, says,"No." Matt opens booster box, pulls out a rancor.

I'm still looking for a heavy booster so I can finish off my FU set without paying the crazy prices the rancor is going for online.

I'm going to do the same thing I did after Universe came out and the original Rancor was the last mini I needed for that set. Try cherry picking a heavy booster while bidding the price of a booster on every one I come across on ebay. Eventually I'll either get one on ebay or find that heavy booster and get a bonus of the rest of the booster to go with the rancor.
