Description

Smoking his hookah pipe, Jabba the Hutt enjoys music and dancing in his palace, surrounded by criminals, bounty hunters, and his monkey-lizard, Salacious Crumb. When he receives a request to free the carbon-frozen Han Solo, Jabba quickly dismisses the idea and returms to his entertainment.

“Peecha wangee cogh pah. Tong nam nee took chan kee troi. Solo thawt du mah kee chalia.”
Translation: “I will not give up my favorite decoration. I like Captain Solo where he is.”

    Bo shuda! Hasbro’s first foray into deluxe figures for their 6” Black Series is the original gangster from Tatooine: Jabba the Hutt. His Throne Room set was exclusive to the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con and sold at the HasbroToyShop booth for $70 after tax. A version without any accessories whatsoever is also being released to retail for the SRP of $39.99. The exclusive set includes his railing, hookah pipe and bowl, and his court jester, Salacious B. Crumb.

    Jabba measures 5 ¾” tall, 11 ¾” wide, and 5 ½” from front to back at his fattest point, making him impressively corpulent. His lower body is sculpted in sturdy yet hollow plastic and his head is much more rubbery due to his opening mouth feature. Much like on the 2011 Jabba from The Clone Wars, if you lower either of Jabba’s arms, his mouth opens, allowing you to puppet him to your heart’s content – or at least until the plastic rips. Jabba’s arms are ball-jointed at the shoulders, elbows, and wrists, making this the most expressive Jabba we’ve seen from Hasbro. (For those keeping track, there were two each from The Phantom Menace and Return of the Jedi, one from A New Hope Special Edition, and one from The Clone Wars in addition to Kenner’s 1983 original.) Jabba is predominantly a rich forest green with a peachy tan on his face, belly, and underside, and the colors blend into each other nicely – though if you rotate Jabba at his waist very much at all, the colors no longer line up. His nostrils and mouth are the same purple, and the brown hue used on his sloppy family crest tattoo is also seen as not-entirely-effective weathering in spots all over his body. The white saliva dripping from his mouth is painted and not sculpted, and his two-tone red eyes are a little simplistic and cartoony. The sculpting is fantastic and more accurate than any of Hasbro’s 3 ¾” attempts, although they did forget the tail scar that they remembered on the 2010 version.

    Jabba’s accessories add so much to the figure that it’s a shame they’re not included in the standard release. Salacious Crumb is chock full of personality. He features ball-joint articulation at the base of his neck, his shoulders, his hips, and his tail, so he can sit comfortably on Jabba’s tail or on the floor at his side. The tiny yellow-and-black eyes on my sample are lopsided, but the layered paint job is otherwise great with his orange hair and black beak and nails. The brown railing, curved to fit Jabba, includes a sculpted control panel and a hole for the bowls, which are sculpted together as one piece.. The lower bowl has two frogs sculpted into a layer of green “water;” they’re difficult to see (and photograph), but I appreciate Hasbro’s effort. The top bowl doesn’t include any sculpted elements and simulates its water solely through paint. A transparent tube attaches to the top of the bowl on one end and to Jabba’s pipe on the other.

    The box resembles Jabba’s front gate, complete with grimy detailing. The top flap is attached to the front of the box with Velcro; pull it up and the front flap will drop down to reveal the Rancor’s gate. There’s no plastic covering the front of the box, but there’s a lot of plastic holding Jabba in place – some of it can easily come out, but the plastic on the “floor” is glued down, making it difficult to remove without ruining the printed images. There’s enough space for Boba Fett to stand in the back and for Princess Leia to recline in the front, and even a cardboard holder for the Han Solo in Carbonite accessory included in 2013’s SDCC exclusive (which, unfortunately, I didn’t get at the time and is not included in the images). Even though we’re not likely to get a 6” scale dais anytime soon, at least the cardboard representation isn’t bad.
